I mentioned in a recent post- Not Interested in Shorts? Try a Denim Skirt for Summer, yet I also mentioned that I do enjoy wearing shorts from time to time in the heat. I bought this pair of white denim shorts from Loft last year, and it was time for me to get them out of my closet. In a previous post, I wrote about wearing yellow for your skin tone, and I just love it! It such a cheery, upbeat color for summer.
Pittsburgh- Mom’s Party
Finally back from visiting at Moms in Pittsburgh- and she has back to Charlotte to then visit with my sis and I. We had such a fun time as my siblings all had been planning a surprise party for my mom, who never got a big bash for her 70th. She will be 74 this year and she had no idea! Our plotted plan, involved telling mom that she was getting ready for a photo shoot, and meeting us at a secret location. Our whole family was there, so she believed it. Working covertly, my sister and niece took my mom to get her nails done, pedicure and makeup while myself and brothers, husband, sis in law, set up for the party. It was such a great surprise! I am so goofy and emotional, I was almost teary eyed when all of her friends yelled Surprise and saw the look on mom’s face! Shannon, my sis in law and I decorated many of the tables with flowers and candle centerpieces, got the wine arranged nicely and made Prosecco grapes ( let grapes soak overnight in Prosecco, dry next day and roll in sugar). All of her friends were there celebrating and we had such a good time. The drive there was 10 hours, home 9, so I am recovering at least before the painters come on Wednesday!
Nothing like a pretty new lace embroidered top to get me in the mood for warmer weather. I don’t have a lot of embroidered items in my closet, but when I saw this on Zara, I bought it straightaway! The delicate lace detailing on the sides and bottom, as well as the bright yellow color was too much for me to pass up. I am making use of these fun statement earrings in white and yellow baubles.
I mentioned not all ladies like wearing shorts, but I find that these white denim shorts are fun to wear and go with everything! I could wear slip on sneakers for even more of a casual vibe. White denim and blue denim shorts are showing as an alternative to wearing jeans in the hot months! I don’t know how some girls do it, as I just don’t enjoy the feeling of clothes sticking to me!
I am never a fan of the “What women over 40, 50, 60+ should NOT wear….” I have always felt, that women should wear what makes them comfortable and confident. If you are looking for shorts, there certainly are different inseams that most women can be happy with and exjoy wearing. It really comes down to feeling good in your clothes. So if you want to wear shorts, go for it!
Linen shorts, with a trouser type feel, are very popular right now, and would keep you cool in the summer months. If you want a longer length, styles such as the Bermuda short are popular with over 40 ,50 ladies. I myself, prefer a shorter inseam, and if you want to show you legs, 4″ or so is a great length. Loft was showing some scalloped detailed shorts that tempt me.
I also like shorts a bit lookser, not tight in any way. ( Let’s face it, I don’t wear anything tight!, Why would you? Shorts that have a flat front look stylish, if you feel any pinching or undies bunching, go up a size. I like my shorts comfy on the hips. These are a size 2 boyfriend style. I am a 4 in most shorts.Besides denim shorts like the ones I am wearing, there are chambray ( a light denim material). They give the look of denim but are lighter material. You can see me wearing them in this post- CHAMBRAY EMBROIDERED SHORTS.
