the longer shorts.

every morning, there's a few minutes after i get into my car where my mind drifts off, and i think about stuff. maybe reflecting on something i did, or what i have to do later, things that make me smile, or things i'm worried about. it's like i'm in a bubble and everything around me is on mute.
and then i realize, "hey, i can't hear the music!"
and the moment is over.

i'm kind of obsessed with cutting my jeans at the knees. with our year round warm weather, i wear a lot of shorts. i also love to wear heels, but i can't get away with wearing [short] shorts and heels during the day. a longer length, however, feels appropriate and more within my comfort zone. i first tried it out with this pair, and now these black joe's jeans that had an awkward fit as jeans anyways. i'm still experimenting
with the lengths.

when is your moment of reflection?

the prettiest rainbow jello...
i usually make 5-layer or 7-layer jello.
i think my co-worker was showing off with her 9-layer jello!

  1. i'm also a fan of the longer shorts -- i think it's just me getting more modest as i get older! i love the idea of cutting jeans and this black pair looks great on you! i think the proportions are just right.

  12. This is a really great combination! Stylish but absolutely elegant enough for work. Good idea to wear the pants in this length :)

    My moments of reflections are also in the car: when I drive to work and back at home. Sometimes I need more time, then I lie down on my couch and reflect - sometimes a very long time ...

  16. I love how you styled these cutoffs. Very chic! And I usually end up reflecting on the subway, haha. It's amazing how easily you start to block out things after commuting for so long!
