March Necessities: Elastic Shorts & Holey Jeans

Despite my ghostly white skin, with the weather warming up I've been gravitating more and more towards shorts. If I can find pieces that are pajama comfortable and still acceptable to wear outside of the house that is always a plus in my book! I'm so in love with these elastic Carmar Denim shorts and predict this will be a growing trend this Spring/Summer. I scoured online and found some of my favorite elastic shorts to share with you.

I'm always a fan of boyfriend jeans and distressed jeans no matter what time of year it is. I'm particularly obsessed with the pair above because of the size and placement of the holes. They have a more grungy feel to me. I've put together some of my favorites right now for you to shop!

These last few weeks have been so crazy!! I flew to portland for a grad school interview (and got in!!!), then one of my good friends and cofounder of Southward Apparel stayed with me for a long weekend, and this weekend I have birthday festivities for my bestie and I fly to Philadelphia for another interview! The rest of my month only gets crazier, but I love it! Next year my life will be all about the books and paper writing, so i'm enjoying every last minute to hang out with friends, go on unexpected trips, and be almost care free. 

So I don't know if you guys follow Sincerely Jules  but she's my absolute favorite blogger and style icon. I'd be twenty times more excited to meet her then I would be to meet Kerry Washington from Scandal which is saying a lot... though maybe not as excited as I was to meet my favorite pig in the world Hamlet. Anywho, if you follow her blog you have probably noticed her insanely cute Espadrilles by Isabel Marant that she often wears. Honestly, at first I kinda hated them, and I wanted her to stop wearing them. But like many things in style, the more and more I saw them the more they grew on me. It's pretty rare that I openly seek out items that I see other bloggers wear, the only other item I can really think of is my Mink Pink slasher shorts that have become an absolute staple in my closet for the last 3 years. Not prepared to spend the money on the Isabel Marent Espadrilles (I'm not even sure if you can still buy them), I was so excited when I spotted these Dolce Vita look alines! They also come in black. They are sooooo comfy and I know I will be wearing them so much this summer. 

Have you guys grown to love something in fashion that you once hated before?!

I pulled a few pairs of Espadrilles that I'm currently loving, for you to shop right now.
