A Short Story

This past weekend was Coachella a.k.a. the music festival swooned over by the fashion industry at large.  And rightfully so!  After all, beyond attending for the fantastic music acts it is completely a see and be seen event, complete with an array of street style photographers.  Alas, I was stuck in LA.  But that doesn’t mean I can’t sift through the mountains of photos and pretend I was there!!!!

Some of my favorite looks featured short-shorts (as seen above!).  They are easy, sexy and versatile.  I can’t wait to wear a pair!  Of course I desperately need a tan right now (I think I would best be described as “sallow”) so maybe it was better for everyone that I didn’t make it to the desert.

But if you are well tanned and have been rocking your toning shoes all winter then it is time to grab a pair.  Whether you go for the flat front, the denim or the rolled style, you can’t go wrong.  Pair the shorts with a blouse and sandals and you’re out the door.  There is something so youthful and fun about this look that it translates easily from the desert to the urban jungle.

Where To Shop:


  1. Love that last look – the chunky belt, bangle (or is it a watch?). She looks comfortable and relaxed, yet cool and chic. Makes me wish I were tan right now too!

  2. pph the shorts are hot!! love ’em

  3. I love the first pair, the dressed up short shorts!

  4. Hey there, just browsing through from FTLOB. Love the pictures, the first outfit is awesome, love it 😀

  5. I just love checking out the Coachella looks! Festival gear is so fun!

  6. Love the middle outfit! I love short shorts (why half-ass it if you’re going wear shorts), but these legs need some tanning and toning before I pull out the short shorts!

  7. Wow. I’m inspired to crank up the toning and tanning. I really like the first outfit.

  8. This is so fun ! Gorgeous !
    Come say hi !

  9. I have the cutest pair of shorts like that but they are gray and a breezy material. I have no tops to wear with them because they are like formal looking but too casual to wear with a formal top. Such a dilemma! Maybe I’ll post it on my blog and you can help me! But I love the look and have a pair of white victoria’s secret shorts like that and I have a ton of different colorful flowy tops I pair them with and I love it!!

  10. I love all of these looks! Definitely my style! I think my favorite is the 3rd look, Shorts with ankle boots- so cute, and the hat is great.

  11. Cochella is definitely the best when it comes to style, I have been saying for years Id love to go….. still hoping one day I can afford it!! I love all of those looks..

  12. Cute post, I’m not sure I’m ready to wear shorts yet, my legs are oh so pale, giggle.P.S> please stop by and enter my giveaway, you can enter to win a gorgeous dress!

  13. I wish I was on the west coast, I would’ve have attended Coachella!

    Spring is my favorite season. Here in Miami, it’s not too hot yet.
