One of my favorite things to wear in the summer are floppy hats. I love how much fun they add to an outfit and are perfect for sun protection for my head. Have you ever had your scalp sunburn? It's the worst! It hurts then it itches and then it starts flaking like crazy like you had major dandruff.
I wore this outfit to a summer concert in our city. It was a hot day so shorts were necessary. Recently, there was an article published in the Oprah magazine about women wearing crop top and it created a bit of back lash from women of all shape and sizes (you can read more about it here). I am sure there's an article somewhere that says a women over a certain age should not wear shorts either. And here I am - almost 43 and rocking some cutoffs.
I have been wanting cutoff denim shorts forever but never found one that actually fits me. I have large thighs and all cutoffs that I've tried would cut off my circulation and they were also too short for my comfort. I was at J Crew a few weeks ago when I spotted these shorts. They are so soft to the touch and it has plenty of stretch. When I tried them on, I knew these were the cutoffs that I've been searching for. I love them so much that I bought them in a lighter wash too.
So here I am in my summer weekend uniform, a floppy hat and cutoffs. What are your feelings on crop tops and cutoff shorts? Am I too old for either trend?
