Let’s talk about shorts. Rewind back to 2007 and you’d probably find me romping around in the teeniest tiniest cut off jean shorts one could possibly hunt down. The less fabric, the better—right? Well, maybe not so much anymore. Nowadays I’m getting shorty to a different tune, something that feels less summer camp and more “where’s my yacht” sort of vibe.

Last summer I felt like I lacked in the shorts department, so this year I’m getting a jump on the season and zeroing in on some favorites. Here are some findings for a more elevated look. Also these amazing striped shorts by Where Mountains Meet totally inspired my kick for baring my gams… and a vacation.

These have got to be some of your prettiest pictures ever! The shorts make such a great statement and the silhouette is so good on your frame. And that bougainvillea, I can’t get over it!!!
