summer friday: keep your pants on

I take my earlier summer Friday post back--I wouldn't run around nearly pants-less even if I could! Yesterday, I passed a girl on the way to happy hour wearing miniscule pink, lacy, tiered tap shorts and a black tank top.... ah! Even in high summer, I felt I was privy to a bit too much. They were the tiniest things I, and everyone around me, had ever seen. In half a block, I watched 10 people turn to stare.
That's a little too much attention--and skin--for me. I dig the short trend, but I prefer it in a sturdier fabric with a more classic top. Take a cue from these girls, my friend:

I especially love the whole attitude of Jules in the mustard top. Those clogs! The layered jewelry! The effortless hair. Style-envy-overload! What's really funny is in her post right before that to-die-for outfit, she has a look that includes the tap short pictured above (total coincidence!). I guess some people can pull it off ;)

Which style do you prefer? It's never too hot to be polished, right?

You are completely right! It's never too hot to be polished.

Sometimes, for a second, I envy the girls with the ultra short short shorts. But, then I appreciate the last couple of pictures you posted so much more. Thanks! :)

Best wishes from one blogger to another,

If I had a 6 foot tall model body and lived in NY, maybe I wouldn't feel weird going pantsless in the name of fashion. However, I am 5'6 and live in podunk FL. It just wouldn't fly. That's okay though. I like a good, high waisted short that covers my cheeks.

You are so right. You see the craziest things on the streets here.

I prefer the middle girl's outfit the most, for myself. All three of the girls look fantastic though, and very classy.
