The Tiny Heart: Who Wears Short Shorts?

5.17.2012

Who Wears Short Shorts?











Top-Thrifted Old Navy (cute option), Shorts-AE (very similar), Sunnies-Ray Ban Jr (similar Ray Bans), Sandals-AE (similar), Necklace-Unknown (similar)

Who wears short shorts? I do. Bermuda shorts might be "in" this season, but my tiny legs will not be caught dead in them. Sometimes you have to go against trend and work with your body. Petites, are you with me?

Your eyes are not deceiving you, I am actually wearing lipstick. Lipstick is something I despise. No matter what shade I put on, I feel like my lips look like Ronald McDonald. But the cheapskate in me couldn't resist trying this NYC Color hot pink lipstick for 99 cents. It's much brighter in person and while I don't love it, I don't hate it either. Guess I have to keep searching for the perfect shade.

Are you Team short shorts or Team Bermudas? 

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for a giveaway!

  2. I am all about Bermuda shorts. Although I am short, I am a classic pear shape and teeny tiny shorts do not look good. I wish I could wear tiny shorts...Target has them in floral right now.

    1. Ahh I'd love a pair of floral shorts. It's been forever since I stepped into Target. I've been avoiding it as a way to curb my spending, haha.

  3. I'm team 5" shorts. I, you know, may be short, but do no have small hips or thighs - so i have to be careful. I don't love Bermudas cause they emphasize my small height and i don't love short shorts cause they emphasize my, you know, thighs. haha. but the 5" shorts i have come to love cause they're like the "baby bear" of shorts. you know, "just right" haha

  6. Cute outfit! I love the polka dots. The beach photos are lovely!! I wish I lived that close to a beach.

    I have really long legs, so I've been transitioning into slightly longer shorts (not quite bermuda length) because I feel like I look really young and crazy in tiny shorts haha.

    Happy Thursday!! :)

  13. I love short shorts! (Not TOO short.) I don't really like bermuda shorts. I think some girls can pull them off but they just aren't for me. I love the picture of the waves crashing behind you. SO jealous that you are near a beach!!

  15. i love short shorts, but i am finding that the "short" shorts are REALLY Short!! why can't they make flattering shorts for someone in their late 20's??!?!?! bermudas are cute, however like you am shortie so they don't go so well with me! :) :)

    1. Maybe I am too old to wear this tiny shorts but I do it anyway, haha!

  16. So a few things. 1) I am insanely jealous that you are standing at the beach in these photos. 2) I noticed your lipstick right away and thought, "what a prety shade!" 3) i am on the fence about both lengths of shorts. I feel like any length makes my legs look weird!!

    1. I'm so glad you liked the lipstick because I was so iffy about it! Hope you don't get too jealous of the beach because you're probably going to be seeing a lot of it now that it's warm out. Hope you can find the perfect shorts length!

  17. CUTE shirt! I love that! Polka dots make me happy.

    I'm team Bermuda - only because I don't have super cute legs like you!

  24. Sharon, you look like a model!!! LIke you, I have to be really careful with the length of my shorts, otherwise I look like I'm swimming in them. But you look fab. And I'm loving the thrifted top ... it's perfect for the beach ... light enough that it's not hot, but the long sleeves are perfect for the breeze or when the sun gets too intense. And you've got to wear that lipstick more - it's fantastic with your skin tone!

  26. You, friend, are SASSY. Like if you looked up Sassy in a dictionary, not only would there be a picture of you, but perhaps a full biography on how Sassy came to be. I'm totally jealous of that thrifted top...it's ADORABLE. And despite my 5'2 petite size...these thighs can't do short shorts like you can! Love the beach pics!

    1. Haha! You're cracking me up with the sassy comments. My co-worker just said I the way I'm dressed today (not the outfit in the photos!) says "don't mess with me", haha. Maybe he picked up on my sassy-ness too?

  37. I'm loving that top - and I'm more of a mid-thigh shorts gal myself. I can't stand the feeling of thighs sticking to seats in the middle of summer, and I typically only wear bermudas with heels.

    1. Thanks Kelly! I agree, when it's over 85 degrees out, the less material, the cooler you'll be.

    I just started wearing lip color and I think these things are amazing! It's just enough color in my opinion. I have probably four different colors, but my favorites are peony and hibiscus!

  47. That sand! Ahhh, the bright, beautiful, warm looking sand and the lovely water....I'm just going to dift off now and daydream...
    What, a comment? I suppose I could before I start dreaming of sandy beachs and sipping fruity drinks in a coconut while drifting in a inner-tube.

    Polka dots? Always a winner for me! It looks so sunny and warm, so a perfect day for short shorts! And I really like the pearl strand, it really pulls out the white polka dots. :)

I am going to stop in and try them on, but who knows I personally like short shorts. Love the red lipstick, and it took me several make-up counter visits to find the right shade :)

  59. I love the top and those sandals are soo cute!! And you look good in lipstick! I'm actually getting more used to wearing lipstick because otherwise my face looks totally washed out in photos. I usually go for peach, coral, and the occasional wine colored shade. They are fun to wear! Have a great weekend! <3
