Friday's Fancies #45: Short & Sweet


After a little break I'm finally back with another installment of Friday's Fancies. With this week's theme being "Short & Sweet", I could only go for one color: pink, of course! My favorite color ever is all the rage this summer, and I had so much fun putting together a whole look centered around one tiny short. Now, to be honest, me and shorts can't actually be called friends: I don't own a single pair and I don't think there is a "short" perspective in my near future. I've inherited my mom's thighs (I've always known that genetics was a bitch!), and I've never been comfortable with skirts and shorts that are just a little bit wider than a regular belt. But I'm not giving up just yet: I've recently started a daily workout routine that includes 30 minutes of spinning, and I believe that this time next year (I guess I'll be just back from my honeymoon then), I'll be able to rock, if not a micro short, than at least a skirt that will hit way up the knees!. Keep your fingers crossed for me, and in the meantime, enjoy my short & sweet Friday styling!

  9. well, usually I don't wear golden jewellery (I don't even buy golden jewellery) but this look, actually every part of it, is just great and so amazingly combined! I would definitely wear it if I had the chance! ;)

  10. I'm so with you on the shorts thing! I tend to wear dresses in the summer and sometimes longer shorts, I just hate how my thighs touch :( Love the board and gorgeous accessories.

  12. You go girl! I've recently started a running routine (and I am NOT a runner), so fingers crossed for both of us :)

    In the meantime, Ann Taylor Loft makes really flattering shorts that hit at just the right spot. And they're not tight in the thigh area either, so you don't feel like your circulation is cut off when you sit (or is that just a problem I have? lol)
