In my scouting efforts to find cute jean shorts, I came up empty handed. Everything was way too short, or unflattering. So, I took the problem into my own hands and decided to make some myself. I did it all the time in high school; there is not much too it. It's just finding the right pair that will work as a jort and then cut them off trying your best to keep them even and giving yourself enough room to roll them if you need to.
I used a pair of post-prego jeans that were a little big on me. They are roomier through the hip, which makes them look a bit better. I accidentally cut off a pair of Joe's that were way too tight for jean shorts, so make sure you pick something that has some room.
we all know you can throw a tank and tee with jean shorts, but how about dressing them up? I had some fun in my closet putting together some ensembles to hopefully inspire...
silk tunic from Francesca's (you can't see, but it has great silver embroidery), paisley silk clutch from Banana Republic, Wrap bracelet from H&M, wedges from Gap
ikat blazer (just got this for $15 at the Banana Republic Factory Store!), J.Crew perfect tank, Nine West Shoes, H&M, Forever 21 bracelets, vintage clutch
J.Crew buffalo check shirt, Nordstrom beads (super old), H&M Straw bag, Dr.Scholls sandals (most comfortable sandal I have ever owned, I HIGHLY recommend them)
