Shorts

Frayed jean shorts sincerely jules

I’ll admit that I was not wardrobe-ready for this spell of warm weather we’re experiencing in Ireland.  I have suffered the consequences of ignoring the weatherman.  Getting dressed in the mornings has become very frustrating as I fixate on that one essential item that’s missing from the closet: the perfect jeans shorts.

The pair I’m after are low-rise, mid-thigh, relaxed, distressed pale denim.  A kind-of shortened boyfriend jean, if you will.

(I’d wear mine with stripes too)

The Autumn/Winter stuff has started to creep into stores, but I refuse to give up on my Summer mission.  Ideas?

ooh thanks for reminding me. I need to update my jean shorts. I've had a pair for a couple of seasons and i reckon they're just a bit short and not so "me".
i really like the type you're looking for. low ride, mid thigh all the way. let me know how you go finding them!! x

I've seen to find the perfect pair of denim shorts....My ideal actually sounds really similar to what you've described...

If Jules could just send me her whole wardrobe I'd be happy, oh and her lovely figure and tanned skin too ;-)

I was looking for similar and these are a couple I book marked on asos. Or you could start cutting up some old jeans.

You have depressed me with the realisation that it has been 20 years since I have worn a pair of jean shorts. Now make me a blackberry sage spritzer to put things right.

I live in my shorts in the summer time! There is no other option living in Texas.

@LoNiCho, thank you, that is so helpful. Very tempted by the ASOS vintage wash but I hate that you can't try them on first, especially with jeans. Maybe I'll just take the chance.

Emma if we met, I would DEFINITELY make you a Blackberry Sage Spritzer.

LoNiCho said...

Thats always the problem with ASOS but I have to say they are great for returns.

These are the Zara selection that are in my shopping bag!!!
Also if you buy online can return item to store if it's not right!!

I'm not enabling now I swear ;-)

I'm not sure about the really really ripped ones, too much i think. Could try gap?

@LoNiCho, seriously thank you for the tips. Loving the Zara options. They should be paying you commission. xx

I tried GAP Mat, but to no avail... disappointing since I love their fit.
