OOTD: Leather Shorts & Stripes






Jacket: PAPYRUS, Blouse & Shorts: Forever 21, Earrings: JEWELMINT, Tights: DKNY,
Shoes: BRIAN ATWOOD, Handbag: CHANEL


I've never been much of a "shorts" wearing girl because growing up I always hated my legs. They've always been sort of short & stumpy which is why I adore heels hahah they can make any legs appear longer! I would never show my legs and this is someone that use to live in Hawaii too! I would wear pants, leggings, maxi dresses anything and everything to cover up my legs even in 90 degree weather!  

(Although I have to admit for the first time in my life I don't absolutely hate my gams anymore and I owe that to living in Germany.  We live on the top floor in our apartment building.. and it's 6 flights up stairs up and no elevator.. you do the math bahahaha!) 

Because I've always had a "fear" of shorts I hopped on the leather shorts train fairly late but I have to say I'm obsessed!!  They're so comfy and it makes every outfit slightly edgy because of the leather material. WOOT! I don't think my love of all things leather is going away anytime soon tehehe.

  1. Ahh I hate wearing shorts too! I've only recently started to wear them in the summer time because it gets way too hot for me (in NYC...can't even imagine some place where it's even warmer!). I've always seen people wear tights & shorts but never thought to try it myself. Guess I should give it a try while it's still a bit chilly :P

  2. Doesn't seem like you have a reason to hate your legs anymore :D Your legs look really leggy with all those heels! Do you wear heels up the stairs too? You're getting an entire workout that ppl otherwise pay for with the stair master =P I love your super opaque tights!

  7. Your hair! I'm jealous of your hair right now. It's what I call "mermaid hair." I used to have mine that long and wavy couple of years ago but its just too much for me to maintain (i'm super lazy when it comes to hair maintenance). For the past few years, I've kept my hair on shoulder length and rebonded/relaxed every 6 months just so I can have this wash & wear routine in the mornings. Now, I'm actually trying to grow it out again, wavy curls and all because I sorta miss it. We'll see.

  35. Lisa, I have the same feelings about my legs...and I live in So-Cal so shorts are somewhat mandatory. I rather wear a skirt b/c I feel like shorts cut off my already short legs. LOL.

    I'm totally drooling over your Chanel Bag. It's gorgeous.
