What I Wore...Beach Edition!

Lazy beach days while on vacation called for flip flops, cut-off shorts & cover-ups!

{long sleeve slub - Anthropologie; blue cotton dress - Target, straw hat - can't remember; striped slub shirt - Nordstrom; striped cardigan - Urban Outfitters; grey cotton strapless dress and white straw hat - Ripcurl Surf Shop in San Clemente; navy/white polka dotted swimsuit under most of it - J. Crew}

My most favorite go-to item this summer....
two pairs of cut-off shorts from my own closet.
One pair of AGs and one pair of Rock Revivals.
Still loved the color and fit....hated the leg opening.
I tried them on. Marked them two inches below my knee.
Cut and rolled them.
And....have been living in them all summer long.

What I like most about them....
they don't show cellulite when you cross your legs while wearing shorts!
BAM!


Linking up with Lindsay over at The Pleated Poppy today for clothing/style inspiration.

  7. We lived in San Clemente for 7 years and spent some time at Rip Curl. There are great deals at their outlet just a few blocks north of their regular store. You look adorable!

  12. Ever since Wednesday, I couldn't stop thinking about how cute your denim cut offs look and I finally got the courage to cut mine today (I'm always scared to potentially ruin clothes I like). I've been wearing them all day and love 'm. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  14. To explain this, imagine a room filled completely from top to bottom with baseballs, which will represent fat cells, and the How To Get Rid Of Cellulite ceiling is a tight sheet of plastic wrap. Now imagine that instantly.

I heart comments! Just one rule that I'm sure your momma taught you...if you don't have anything nice to say...please don't say anything at all!
