Cutoffs That Won’t Make You Feel Like a Hooker

I love cutoff jean shorts for a casual, beachy summertime look, but my oh my are they hard to pull off without looking hoochie-fied (or 16 years old). I’m only 5’2″, so shorts tend to run long on me, making my legs look stubby. The alternative, however, is usually booty shorts that are only appropriate if you haven’t hit puberty or are dancing in a rap video.

So I was thrilled to find Paige Denim’s Silverlake cutoff shorts. They’re sexy in an “I just woke up and threw these on because I don’t try too hard” kind of way, but they’re not so short that I feel inappropriate. They are currently on sale for $83.40 (regularly $139). That’s a lot of money for a very little bit of fabric. So it’s a good thing I scored mine at Marshall’s for $39.99! And even that was pricey for shorts in my book. But with a fit like this. . . so worth it!

About mommachine

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. And trying to balance all of those roles at once can be utterly exhausting. Being the Type A control freak that I am, I try to run my life like a well-oiled machine. But sometimes the wheels get a bit squeaky (or just fly off completely, let's be honest). I have to slow down (yeah right, I know), give the different parts of my life a little tune-up and get back on the road.
