Hot Hot Shorts....

A while ago I posted about hot hot shorts by Chanel. Apparently mini shorts are trend du jour. Although I think mini shorts can be sassy and stylish when paired properly with the right top and accessories, this savvy gal will still avoid pieces that looks lingerie-ish.

As I said before I refuse to pay good money for clothes I can easily DIY myself. For example, I can easily cut old jeans into cut-off style hot denim shorts. Why pay money when all a gal need is a pair of scissors, right? However I do like short shorts that are slightly dressy. It makes the trend more stylish instead of lingerie-ish. I will pair these with a dressy top or a crisp white shirt.

I like this pair of mini shorts above; it is sassy without looking underwear-ish. Available at Saks, on sale here.  What about you, will you wear hot pants this summer?

*To pull off this look, I am pretty sure my elliptical will become my best friend this summer uh......

  6. Sadly, I don't have the legs for shorts anymore. I'm going to have to settle for skirts and capris this summer!

  9. You won't see any or much San Franciscans dressing like this. It's sooo cold here. I can't believe this weather! I personally am not a shorts person. More like a skirt and dress type.
