Wednesday March 5, 2014

You know what I love about shorts? First of all, they are super comfy. Second, they are perfect for summer keeping you cool while still looking chic. Third, they are SO on trend right now. And fourth, they can easily be dressed up or down based on what you pair it with. Plus, contrary to popular belief, shorts can look very flattering on pear shaped women like me. Don't believe me? Just check out this article I wrote where I give several tips on how to wear shorts for pear shaped women.

-- En Español -- ¿Sabes porqué me gustan tanto los shorts? En primer lugar, son muy cómodas. En segundo lugar, son perfectos para el verano para mantenerte fresca y todavía verte chic. En tercer lugar, están muy a la moda ahorita mismo. Y en cuarto lugar, pueden fácilmente verse elegantes o casuales dependiendo de cómo los usas. Además, contrario a lo que muchos piensan, los shorts se pueden ver muy bien en mujeres con cuerpo en forma de pera como yo. No me crees? Vean este artículo que escribí donde doy varios tips de cómo usar shorts para mujeres con cuerpo en forma de pera.

Today, for example, I decided to dress up these polka dot shorts by pairing them with a classy blouse and a polished blazer. I can just as easily pair these shorts with a plain white tshirt and some cute flats for the weekend. The possibilities are endless!

Hoy, por ejemplo, decidí ponerme estos shorts de puntitos de forma elegante combinándolos con una blusa blanca y un blazer profesional. Así mismo puedo usar estos shorts de forma más casual combinándolos con un tshirt blanco y unos zapatos tipo bailarinas para un look de fin de semana. Hay tantas formas distintas de combinar los shorts!

  5. I love wearing shorts (when the weather permits - still a few feet of snow on the ground where I live). These polka dot shorts are super fun, and they look unexpectedly great with that blazer.

  11. Pear shaped?! You? Surely you jest?!



    I struggle with shorts. Really struggle with shorts, and I am the classic hourglass; with a long waist. Plus I am over 40. So right now, I am super-envious ;)
