It’s September, so it’s perfect that temperatures this week are reach the hundreds here in Southern California. Ok, not really. I’m still dreaming of buttery, leather pants, cozy knit sweaters and a stupidly awesome amount of layers. I’m thinking Free People Fall Lookbook while the weather is just tempting me to quit my job and become a mermaid. I’m trying to find a compromise because I just don’t think the whole mermaid gig is really going to work out. This look is just that — a fashion compromise. A flowy maxi with some sliders is perfect for every day of summer while a wool, wide-brim hat and all black is just so appropriate for the cooler months. If this is the outcome, we’re ok with compromising. For now at least.

Short Story

Shorts are a challenge. For us at least. Too long, too short. Too bland, too much. Too high-rise, too low-rise. Too tight, too loose. Too these-are-doing-nothing-for-my-legs-so-looks-like-I’ll-just-cover-them-forever. So we assume with all these issues surrounding shorts there are others out there struggling to find this summer staple that they love. And if you’re fortunate enough to have found that great pair of shorts, maybe you’re struggling making outfits with them and breathing life and personality into them. We’re here to inspire and help you get out of that rut. We LOVE our boyfriend jeans, but some days it’s just too damn hot to be in ankle grazing denim. Your search for the perfect pair is over; we’ve done our research to find some shorts  that will show off your gams, help you looking chic, and keep you cool all summer long.
