Concrete Catwalk // Spring Shorts

Me and Miss Sara B!  Check out her outfit post here!

Coming clean right now: I’ve been a shorts-fiend, lately!  I was thinking about how much I love them while I was editing these photos, and I realized that something like 75% of my Spring purchases have been shorts.  Teaser: there might even be a high-waisted pineapple print pair in the bunch!

I’ll take them corduroy and casual any day, but I also love wearing them dressed up with ladylike heels and a sheer peplum sweater for a night out on the town with friends (this particular outing involved Korean BBQ and Karaoke!).  Not only do I get to skip worrying about a gust of wind causing a wardrobe malfunction on the way to the train station, but there’s just something super fun and playful about them that brings to mind that tomboy vibe I told you I’ve been digging these days.

Check out my past styled-up shorts for Summer inspiration, and don’t forget to swing back by tomorrow for my fun news – Can’t wait to share! ;)

    You look so darling, the shorts are so cute. I’ve been having a love affair with shorts lately too. If you’ve got high waisted pineapple ones, I need to step it up haha.

    Jessie, I <3 this outfit! Keep 'em coming! I'm a big fan of ladylike shorts too.

    P.S. It was so great seeing you at the Poshmark Posh Party. Congrats on the event!

  8. Bree

    You pull of shorts so well! I don’t think my white legs are quite ready yet…

    Also, can I just say that I love your hair? Please tell me that you spend hours on it and that it doesn’t just have the perfect amount of wave and volume naturally?

    • You’re going to HATE my answer… I only wash my hair every 10-14 days, but I think the reason it looks so fluffy here is because I had just washed/blown it dry. :) After I blow dry (which takes like 30-40 mins) I twist it into a low bun and let it cool while it’s clipped like that, and that seems to give me waves for a least a few days until the next time I hit it with a curling iron. Thanks for the lock love, though, hun!

  9. Lia

    What a GORGEOUS, chic look, Jessie! You look beautiful and I LOVE the shorts…and the wedges!
    Smart n Snazzy

  10. I love your outfit! And I really, really love your nail polish! Can you share the brand?

    • Sure, girl! It’s an Essie color, and I think it was called Mint Candy Apple! I got them done at a salon, so don’t have the bottle to check. :) Glad you like! XO

  11. I also have a love affair with fun pairs of shorts…I never was the girl to wear the tight shorty-shorts, so I love how the trend is moving to a more flowy and classy look. I love the color of your pair! Also, I have to say that your hair looks gorgeous in these photos! Such a pretty ensemble :)

  12. Trish

    yes, HI…. love it! Love the look, the accessories, the makeup, the sweet then surprisingly silly and let’s be honest…..if I had your legs I might sport something shorter than the knee-covering things I wear these days:)

    Happy Spring days to ya!

  13. Love it all especially the vintage sweater….if you know where the Alexander Wang look alike is available, do let me know!
