Fashion Advice:Shorts and Cropped Pants

Shorts from Urban Outfitters
Shorts from Nordstrom (hate the shoes though..)

Cropped pants from Banana Republic (I wouldn't wear them, but they help me with my point!)

Okay, I'm an athlete, so my toned calves aren't the smallest. When it comes to summer fashion, I tend to stay away from gauchos (which are out anyway) and some cropped pants. The main problem I find with gauchos is that they end right where my calves are at their widest, (so not flattering). When I am looking for something shorter than jeans for the summertime, I try to pick cropped pants that end after my calf muscle so they emphasize the smallest part of my leg. Or I'll just buy some mid- sized shorts, lol.

Resort Collections

Oscar de la Renta Summer 2007 Resort Collection

Diane von Furstenburg Summer 2007 Resort Collection

Badgley Mischca Summer 2007 Resort Collection

Even though I'm not a big fan of the resort collections that come out every year, i felt it would be appropriate for me to post a few. Basically, all of the designers traveled back to a 50's houswife/ New York "old money" style for this seasons collections. Which of these three do you like the most?


I must say that I'm excited to see the movie-musical HAIRSPRAY when it comes out in theaters July 20th. For those of you wondering, HAIRSPRAY, originally on Broadway in New York, is about a girl's passion for dancing and how she pvercomes obstacles in order to do what she loves most. I'm sure it will be filled with big personalities and even bigger hair, so go see it!
