Flavors To Follow: Not Too Short… Shorts!

Hi friends!  This week felt like a long one even though we had Monday off but thank goodness it is Friday!!  🙂  I’m super excited to be going back to Michigan this weekend for a friend’s bridal shower/bachelorette party!  We’ve done a lot of planning for it and I just know it’s going to be fabulous.  🙂  And I’m just uber excited about going back to my home state and hanging out with my college buddies.

For this week’s Flavors To Follow, I decided to do it on shorts!  I used to not be such a huge fan of them because I didn’t like showing off my legs and thought that jean shorts were always uncomfortable.  But lately, I’ve been seeing lots of different types of shorts out there… ones with flowy material, that weren’t too short and also have a fun pattern or bow on them.  Here are a few of my faves!

1) Clothesline Chambray Shorts from Spool No. 72
2) Yacht to Trot Shorts from ModCloth
3) Rose Floral Shorts from Shop Ruche
4) Mint Condition Paperbag Shorts from Shop Ruche
5) Bowtied Batik Shorts from Anthropologie
6) Polka Dot Swing Short from Forever 21

Well I hope your weekend is a fantastic one!  I’ll see you next week from Ohio!  I’ve been blessed by not having to travel for the past 3 weeks but it’s about time again.  🙂

P.S. Don’t forget to enter the Sew Ewe-Nique Designs giveaway we have going on here!!

What are your weekend plans?

    I’m like you in that I don’t like shorts- but these would make fabulous skirts also! Love the bows on them!

    Yay! I’m loving all the new shorts trends, I love wearing shorts the most because I like my legs more than my arms 🙂

    I usually don’t wear shorts either, but I do love 3 and 6 because they are sort of shaped like a skirt, but without all the skirt issues. Might have to give these types a try and see how it goes.

    Have fun in Michigan!!

  13. May 20, 2011 / 1:57 pm

    Oh I love all of those shorts!

  14. May 20, 2011 / 2:35 pm

    Have a fun weekend!

    Sandy, these are all so cute! Sadly I think these are still short enough to wear when I’m teaching, but on the weekends, absolutely. Hope you have a great weekend! I’m still not quite sure what mine holds yet…besides comments on lots of students’ paper drafts.

    i love your #2 pick. i love shorts, not daisy-dukes though. shorts are fun, i think. of course, summer is my favorite time so it makes it even more appealing to me 🙂

  22. May 21, 2011 / 3:09 am

  23. May 21, 2011 / 6:11 am
