a short story.

Though I shied away from shorts for a few years, I'm head over heels for them these days. Because we're now into June, I thought it would be fun to devote a week of Friday's Fancies to this summery staple. If you need it, here is a little inspiration as you get your posts ready for tomorrow...

I adore seeing two solids paired together. With a quick look at this collage, you'll see a lot of bold bright colors paired with a simple white top. Talk about the ultimate warm weather wear! A peek of pattern can also take this look to a whole new level. In other words, solids and patterns are both your friend!

The bottom line is this: shorts are here to stay--at least while the weather cooperates! All I have to say is that you folks who live in year-round short weather are lucky ducks.

  4. I only own two pairs of shorts. One basic denim short shorts, and a pair of pastel pink short shorts. (and lots of "don't even fit" athletic shorts, ew). I think it's time to go shopping!

  5. Adorable pictures! I used to aim for solid, rather boring shorts, but this summer I'm gathering all the bold patterns I can find! :)

  6. I love solid bright colors. Not too tight or too short.


    Happy Thursday Doll!

  7. I just started loving the shorter shorts again. Not too short, but I am kinda bored with the Burmuda shorts, I will still wear them too, but for some reason I always feel more frumpy in them. I got some cute pairs at Old Navy yesterday for really great prices! :)

  10. I love all these shorts looks, and I can't wait to link up tomorrow! I do have one pair of printed shorts, but mostly I gravitate towards solids.

  11. Love your inspiration! We are finishing up our Friday's Fancies right now. Thanks again for all you did to host such an amazing Blogger Blitz last weekend! We are so happy that we got to meet so many amazing girls (and see Josh again) and most of all we were so thrilled to finally get to meet you. Can't wait for next time and if you ever come through Richmond, give us a shout!

  12. I have a ton of solid shorts, so I think my next purchase will have to be a cute patterned style! I've never seen any like that!

  16. I've always gone for solids, but this season I've branched out and I now have two patterned shorts. Both are black and white so I can wear a color on top. It was risky, but I totally love them!

  19. This year I bought myself a pair of really pretty grass green shorts. Until now I have only paired them with a printed white top and a hot pink blazer. Shorts season in Estonia is very short (haha), from mid-June to the end of August, I'd say.
