Friday Fancies:

Ah, the evasive hunt for the perfect pair of shorts for the {ahem} slightly older gal. 
What you look for in your teens.early 20's {namely the shortest and tightest possible} is the exact opposite of what might make the perfect pair today.
A little longer. A little softer. And definitely not form fitting.
Short & Sweet

For full outfit details follow me on Polyvore

Last year, I found a few lovelies that will still work this summer.
Namely, these from Aritzia. The perfect high-waist and longer length. Bonus points for cute nautical buttons.
And a very similar pair to these from Forever XXI. A tad longer and softer than your standard denim cut-off.

Where are you finding your perfect pair?

Linking up here and here.


  1. Dearest Susan,

    Just a couple of weeks ago I found two Escada Sport Bermudas that are perfect! One Khaki and one White... With a tan I don't mind the shorter shorts either but, yes it makes a difference in age. Have a great weekend.

  2. so true about fit...mine I test with the ability to bend over with out flashing the world... ~ :)

    Those grey shorts are darling! Love the teal necklace as well!

  3. Love it! Those grey shorts are SO great and I love the pops of teal :) Happy Friday!!

  4. I love wearing shorts it's basically my daily uniform. And when you live in tropical country I think short will be your best friend. Also, let's not forget my height or the lack of it that makes me want to wear shorts all the time too.

    I basically like the grey shorts and YSL bag.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  5. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect pair this year. Every pair I find is short, short, short. Not exactly 'mom of three' wear.;)

  6. gah! those shoes are BOMB!!! love love love
    and i think blue is my color this year. ive been wearing a lot of it and am totally attracted to everything blue right now hehe.
    needless to say. i NEED that necklace and essie polish!
    super cute

    stopping by from blonde episodes :)
    hope you come show some love :)


  7. Totally true! As I get older the shorts get longer hehe.

    I love your outfit! Have a great weekend :)

  8. I am desperate to find shorts that will hide my legs but are still shorts. Gah!


  9. OMG I'm drooling over those shoes! Want, want, want!

  10. Oh gosh just gorgeous! I love this color palette! And isn't it the truth about finding "age appropriate" shorts. So hard! But I love the ones you have here!

  11. These are cute! I've never liked the super short shorts. I found some cute ones at Marshalls last year. Cute, but full cheek coverage!! :) You will look great in anything!

  12. I have a pair of capris that are exactly like those shorts. I love them. They are dressy when they want to be and casual when they want to be. One of my favourite summer staples!

  13. AHHHH ... I'm exactly in that predicament, searching for the elusive pair of shorts for the (hmmm... over 30 ..ok over 39 and I'm not going any further...lol).. summer. I have decided that I will make Lilly Pulitzer's dresses my summer look. Happy week-end! xo C. (HHL)


I love reading every last one. Thanks so much for stopping by our little blog. xo.
