New England Style

Most of the time, I thank God that I was born and raised in the South. There’s really nothing like it in the whole world. But if I hadn’t grown up here, I wish I could have grown up in the Northeast. You know, New England. Full of sailing on sailboats a la the Kennedy’s, wearing nautical stripes, hanging out at light houses (you know, the only things that New Englanders do). Oh yeah, and look ADORABLE all the time. Like these people. Oh my God I love them.

By the way, the girl who is in all the photos is named Sarah Vickers and her boyfriend is the one in the green shorts, Kiel James Patrick. They both work for his New England style company. Check it out here. Everything is legit beautiful in every single way. Also visit her personal style blog here!

I don’t like short shorts, y’all

Here’s my problem: I’m a little picky when it comes to shorts. And when I say a little picky, I mean I literally have two pairs I’m willing to wear. When I was younger I used to just wear jeans in the summer because I hated how shorts looked on me. And that’s because I was shopping at American Eagle and their shorts are literally like two inches long and your butt hangs out more with every step you take. I just couldn’t do it.

So now that I’ve expanded my shopping horizons I’ve gotten some more options. Obviously Target is a favorite, but even theirs can be super short. I usually like my shorts (and when I’m talking about shorts here, I’m talking about denim shorts, cutoffs and what have you) not so short with a cuff at the bottom. Therein lies my problem. I like my shorts to have just a little bit of wear or something, so they’ll look a little worn in and comfy.

I really really do not like these shorts:

They fit most of the criteria I’ve set: they’re not baby shorts, they’re a darkish/medium wash, they have a little wear, and they’re cut-offs. But they don’t have the cuff. And they fray too much at the ends, so it just looks like I bought them like that…which just kills me.

I also like my shorts to be super relaxed so that if I sit down or do any kind of activity they won’t cut into my legs, which seems to be a problem no one in the shorts designing community understands. For instance, these seem way too close to the leg for my taste.

Not that there is anything with liking these shorts. I’m just ridiculously picky when it comes to my own shorts. On other people, these shorts would probably be totally fine. And I might even like them on you. But not me.

Here’s my dilemma: I’ve found my dream shorts. I know where to get them. They’re in my size. They’re in stock…but they’re so out of my budget for a pair of worn-in looking, denim shorts it’s ridiculous. As in $80-$170. Someone help me out and say that J. Crew or Shopbop will have a 50% off sale because I need it now. Like right now.

I’m dying over the shorts in some of these pictures. So jealous.

Blair Waldorf wishes

Pretty intimates, reminiscent of Blair Waldorf’s endless wardrobe of sleep and loungewear, that wouldn’t be super embarrassing if a friend and/or family member saw them? Got that.

February 2012

Why are you just out of my price range, J. Crew? Why do you make me fall in love with you and then take away your beautiful sweaters, Italian flats, and pencil skirts in daring colors?
