Boyfriend Shorts Dilemma

by Kate Franco on May 3, 2013 · 14 comments

casual weekend wear 4weekeend wear 6boyfriend shorts with clogs on undeniable stylea casual style that's perfect for Spring! boyfriend shorts, clogs and a sweater. Yes, please!casual weekend wearThough it hasn’t been much a part of my style evolution lately, I’ve long loved Madewell’s vintage preppy luxe aesthetic. And, having won a gift card not too long ago, I decided it was time to go shopping! I’ve been stalking the website for months, but haven’t seen anything I just HAD to have, until last week. I swooped on these earrings, a super cute silk floral top with a bright yellow back {on clearance!} and some jean shorts, which sadly need to be returned.

The shorts had to be returned because of the fit, not because I didn’t love them. You see, I’m on the hunt for the perfect pair of boyfriend shorts…oh, wait…is that what I’m already wearing? I know, it’s confusing. Chalk it up to: you can never have too much of a good thing, or something like that. In addition to the pair I’m wearing, I ALSO want some boyfriend shorts that are a tad shorter than these with the same amount of looseness, possibly in a lighter wash with some distressing. Tall order, apparently, as so far they’ve been difficult to find.

What brands or shorts are you loving lately? Anything I should know about?

So cute! Love your silver clogs! I was just at Old Navy over the weekend and they had a great shorts selection.

Thanks Jackie! I got them at the end of the season last year, and didn’t really have chance to wear them, so I’m excited to rock them all summer long! xox.

Ummmm these shorts are perfect?! But I understand what you mean about finding the perfect ones. I’ve been looking for some majorly distressed ones myself. Let me know what you find!
