Jorts for May!

So today, I found myself at the mall with 30 minutes to kill while I had my glasses repaired during my lunch break. This left me just enough time to pop into Forever 21, an old friend whom I haven't seen for dayyyyys. Seriously, by the time I finally had time to chat with F21 today she had married her college boyfriend, had 3 kids and became President of her HOA- time has flown
  (minus popping in for earrings, I think I last shopped there in 2010??)!!

I've been shopping a lot less these last few months but luckily the task came back to me like riding a bike with an old friend. Thankfully, because mama needs shorts, my shorts have completely disappeared from my life! Where are my jean shorts to carry me through the hot summer days??!? Ohh how I miss m jorts.

My main goal was to just grab a simple, cheap pair of shorts [see: I've been shopping a lot less in 2011]. And I narrowed it simplistically down to these two pairs:

Which ones do you like better??? Jean or Nautical???
Goodness, these pictures are so douchebaggy! However, A. Co Est 1984 just did a pretty good post on the joys of blogging in instances like this- read that here.

Ohh by the way, for sh*ts and giggles, here's what I actually wore to work today:
{work outfit 5/17/2011}

Nothing too special- pleated black skirt (of course you can't see details from my phone pics), black sweater loose tee, feather belt and Nine West pumps- bada bing, bada boom.

And I did buy one of those pairs of shorts... we'll get to that on another day.
Happy Hump Day!

i really loved both pairs of shorts to be honest! i actually hit up F21 the other day and bought a bunch. i mean, how can one resist when they are like 10 bucks!? my only concern with me buying some is that my legs are in NO position to be exposed to the word just yet LOL. so ill simply have to wear them with tights still until (which isn't a big deal since ohio is still in winter temperatures).

Gah! I cannot choose. I love the jean and the nautical in their own ways. They are two completely different styles; thus, I believe you need them both! :)

Kristen said...

Nauticalllll for sure! ♥

Everything is HOT you got amazing legs!!!!

Ohh those are both cute! I like the four button pair the best because they can be dressed up or down!

For F21 prices I say get both! That's not helpful, is it?

I thought you got both pairs? Bet it was hard to choose then! I like both, becaue the jean shorts are casual and great for the day time, the beach etc. and the buttoned ones can be easily dressed up.

You would look good in anything due to all the time you spend at the gym keeping in shape. Both of those pairs of shorts look nice but I'd want to see how the back views looked before deciding which ones I liked best. I guess it does depend on where you're planning on wearing them too. You might want an entirely different pair from either of them if you're out yachting.

Your work outfit looked nice.

both pairs looks great on you, but i prefer the nautical one just because im a fan of dark denim :) you look great in your work clothes too!

OMG you are so funny - ("she had married..."

I really love the nautical ones, but that's only b/c I am *obsesses* with all (clothing)things nautical lately.

Love your work outfit! So cute!

You know what? You should have taken both, you look stunning in both. Not to mention your work outfit, traffic stopper outfit!
Very elegant and stylish, yet also sexy and feminine.

Thanks for sharing Caitlin.

Enjoy your day, almost weekend.
