The other day I stopped by F21 to return this little number I ordered...it ended up being too short once I shortened the straps so it fit right on top. It was also sheer on the bottom tier so you could see right to my belly button...no thanks. =( I decided to try on some of their colored skinny denim while I was there since I had no kids in tow. I've always wondered how they'd fit. Let's just say they were all major fails. They were all SO SUPER THIN and ill-fitting. I've been spoiled by the likes of AG and even Gap with their fabulous fits. Sorry F21, even your $10 price tags weren't able to lure me in. Not this time. While I was in the dressing room I snapped a few pictures of what I was wearing:

This was the first time I wore my new shoes and I loved them! They are super comfy and I didn't get a single blister. And as you can see I'm all about bright colored cardigans right now...love me a sunny yellow.
I actually need to be all about SHORTS right now as well seeing as how I roasted to death in the almost 90 degree weather yesterday at the park. A few years ago I gave up wearing shorts and have only worn cropped jeans/pants ever since, but I'm thinking this might be the year I need to adopt back the idea that shorts aren't so bad (even though I still don't think they look that great on me). I have the knobbiest knees ever and they just aren't my favorite thing about myself so I'd rather hide them, however, vanity might not win out this summer. Another option many women opt for is capris, but for now, I have no interest in these. They're not my favorite look or style. So some cute, knee-length shorts is what I have on my radar (Bermuda length--about 12" inseam). And seriously, they are next to impossible to find (at least the style I'm looking for is). I have chicken legs so finding some shorts that are more fitted rather than baggy would be better for my body-type I think. Here are a few options I found (most are pretty pricey though):
(come in a lighter denim, black and white)
Do you wear Bermuda length shorts? If you see any I haven't mentioned, do tell! I'd love to hear any suggestions you have on where to find some!
