I spent this weekend at York Beach in Maine, at an adorable inn with my mom and sister. The weather was gorgeous, our room had a beautiful ocean view, the town was like something out of a Disney movie, and we had plenty of reading and shopping time.
No trip to Maine would be complete without at least stopping by the outlets in Kittery. I scored a great sundress ($10) and a new white skirt ($25) at Gap, a necklace at Banana Republic ($10), and fantastic wedges ($18) at Old Navy. I’m wearing a totally new outfit today and it feels great!
The one thing I didn’t find, though, is a pair of shorts. I haven’t owned a pair of shorts in about five years. I pretty much stopped wearing them when I discovered my love of sundresses–but I want a pair now, especially after a weekend at the beach. I don’t love my legs, but I’m trying to embrace them and find the perfect flattering, casual but not too casual, pair for the summer. Here are a few wish list candidates:
Tibi cockatoo printed shorts ($200)
Topshop button fold-over shorts ($55)
Theory crescent checked shorts ($80)
Vigoss “Brooklyn” denim bermuda shorts ($44)
Jane Norman anchor button shorts ($21)
See by Chloe mini twill shorts ($86)
Theory Outlook Bennie checked shorts ($160)
Miss Selfridge mink turn up shorts ($28)
AE lace hem cut offs ($30)
Which ones are your favorites?
