wear: work it wednesday.

this morning, before i had even rolled out of bed, i saw a tweet from jill about work it wednesday and my first thought was,
wait a's wednesday?!
sigh. let's just say i've been a little off this week.
i still wanted to join in, so i'm interrupting the vacay recap to discuss the wonders of
 denim shorts.

denim shorts have become a summer staple for me. which is odd, because in high school i wouldn't have been caught dead in shorts. (do you remember this, erika?) in my mind, shorts were for jocks. i am not, nor ever was, a jock. so i wore skirts and capri pants and even suffered in jeans in the summer. evidence of youthful stubborness: 
khaki capris circa 2004

denim capris circa 2002 (that's mr.a on my left!)
jeans circa 2001

about five years ago i finally bought a pair of olive green cargo shorts (of course) and that pair slowly convinced me that shorts are not all bad. (however, the teenagers these days who are wearing shorts the size of my panties? bad. very, very bad.) 

last year i cut off a pair of boyfriend jeans and the rest is history. 
they're perfect for almost any day of the week!
