pleat party

Further proof of my unhealthy obsession with dressing to match my blog header.
  
Here's a preview of a few of my thrifting scores of the day - three pairs of pleated, high-waisted, butt-flattening, FUPA-inducing (don't Google that, really) walking shorts. The fact that I am super excited to hem these and wear them all summer either means that style blogging has completely warped my sense of what's acceptable to wear in public, or that I subconsciously really want to be single again.

Oh no...I had to google it -- I just had to!!

Anyway, I love the colors of these shorts and can't wait to see you rocking them!

I have been looking at several Goodwill for the same style of shorts. I think these style of shorts are completely acceptable to wear in public. You'll look awesome.

I'm sure you will look great in these! I'm excited to see what you do with them. Good color choices, too!

" Pleated, high-waisted, butt-flattening, FUPA-inducing (don't Google that, really) walking shorts."   *giggles*  It sounds so wrong, yet somehow it ends up being and looking right...at least for some, anyhow.  I have to confess that even I own a variation of this season's pleated "mom" jeans and every time I wear them I feel so comfy and even a little stylish. In a really ass-backwards sort of way, hahaha.  Wear what makes you happy! At the very least, those colors are fab!

Interesting... haha!

I'm still kind of resisting this mom shorts thing.  All the bloggers seem to look awesome in them but I remain unconvinced...

I am so excited to see those shorts in one of your outfit posts! What a lucky find to actually get 3 pairs!!! amazing :)

Joy_Etc said...

pastel colored mom shorts=YES PLEASE.

Patricia said...

Well, I googled it. Ooops.

emily said...

 Thanks - now I just have to hope the temperature goes up again, it's been super chilly ever since I nabbed these!

emily said...

 Haha, thanks - hopefully I can avoid the dreaded fupa!

emily said...

Thank you!

emily said...

 Haha, yes! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so. :)

emily said...

Thanks Courtney! So far I've got one pair ready-to-wear, I need to get started on the other two soon so I can take them on the next leg of our trip!

emily said...

Hee! Yeah, it just makes such a difference when you wear something with confidence, I'm sure I should just go ahead and wear these with pride!

emily said...

 Haha, true! After hemming the first pair, I can tell he's warming up to the idea at least a little bit. :)

emily said...

 It was a pretty awesome thrifting trip, I tried on way more pants and shorts than I usually do and it definitely paid off!

emily said...

 I will admit, I have no idea how flattering (or, erm, not) these will be when all is said and done, but I do love the colors, and it'll be nice to have an alternative to constant skirts for the summer.... so we'll see. :)

emily said...

 It's so true - I think the best thrifting advice I can give is to go often, look at everything, and try to look for potential in items that can be altered or restyled.

emily said...

Haha, oh no... well, you can't say I didn't warn you. :)
