How To Make Long Shorts Look Totally Cool

Atlanta personal stylist, top atlanta blogger, atlanta street style

I never really got into wearing shorts, especially shorts that showed too much thigh meat.  Reason 1. I had scrawny legs, but the main reason is because growing up in the church we couldn't wear pants or shorts.  Now that I'm an adult and can decide what I want to wear, short shorts are still a style I kinda shy away from.

If you're like me and short shorts aren't your thing, but you still want to rock a shorts ensemble, this look is for you.  Now-a-days it seems like the shorts are getting shorter and shorter.  I mean, some girls (and grown women) are walking these streets in shorts so short they may as well be underwear; booty cheeks out and everything (smh and giving the side-eye at the same time).  I don't get it, but to each their own.

In this look I'm sharing how to treat longer length shorts the same way you would a pair of shorter shorts or even a pair of jeans.  While most tend to go the T-shirt route when wearing denim, I chose to wear this off-the-shoulder black & white striped shirt (also worn HERE + HERE).  And because I absolutely love this marigold colored blazer I thought adding it to this look would make a great statement.  It's vibrant, light weight and perfect for this long shorts outfit (check out the first time I wore it HERE).  

Whenever I'm shopping for myself or a client, the goal is to find pieces that are unique and that will make people stop and tell you how fabulous your ensemble is (I won't lie, I love that part).  That's where these super cute sneakers (first time wearing them in this look) with printed scarf adjustable laces come in to make this look stylish and trendy.  A mini book bag purse, some arm candy and a dope pair of shades.... Boom Shakalaka - A totally cool way to make long shorts look awesome.  

I hope this look inspires you to think outside the box.  You'll never know if you like it or actually look good unless you give it a try.  I challenge you to spend a little more time and effort in your closet, you just might shock yourself at what you came come up with.  Btw... wanna see how I've styled these shorts before -- go HERE, HERE + HERE and that one time I wore a shorter pair of shorts HERE.  

Tell me, would you try this look or something similar to it?  If not, what are your reservations for not trying this look?  Let's chat in the comments below.

I'm Wearing My Feelings

Atlanta top blogger, Atlanta style blogger, Atlanta Personal stylist

It almost never fails that when Thursday hits, I have a moment of - "Is today Thursday or Friday"?  I mean I literally have to look at a calendar to confirm what day it is.  Does this ever happen to you?  Sometimes I wonder if the reason why I'm having these semi lapses in time is because I'm not happy about having to wake up early in the morning, travel 40-45 minutes (one way) to a job that doesn't excite me or challenge my creativity.

My career goals were simple.  I'd go to college, get my BS in nursing, work as a trauma nurse for 10-12 years, quit and then work for myself as a fashion stylist.  But we all know that even the best laid plans...  

Today's outfit sorta describes how I've been feeling lately.  All mixed up.  Although the first part of my career goals didn't pan out, I still have my sights set on being a successful entrepreneur.  For the last few years I've envisioned myself getting up for work only to call my manager and telling her 'I Quit'.  Today was one of those days.  

Honestly I think the reason I haven't done it is because I'm scared.  Whew!  I said it.  I think this is the first time I've actually embraced (outside of my head) that I'm scared.  I'm afraid of the unknown.  What if no one hires me?  What if a client hires me and I can't get the job done?  What if I don't make enough money to support my family?  What if!  What if!  What if!!!!!  Somebody said, the What if's and the Should have's will eat your brain. 

Maybe that why I haven't been as inspired lately.  I mean the struggle has been fo'real fo'real.  Just writing this post took a lot out of me.  Yet!  I won't be defeated.  I won't allow discouragement to beat the crap out of me.  Instead of letting fear get the best of me, I'm taken the advise I give my son when he's scared; just because you're afraid doesn't mean I let fear take over me.  

Fear aside, let me tell you how I fight these feelings.  My weapon of choice is my tongue.  Do you understand how powerful the tongue is?  It's more powerful than any two-edged sword.  Life (and death) lies in the power of what we speak.  That's why I make sure what I speak matches my goals.  Even at my lowest, I refuse to speak against my future.  Y'all I was about to start preaching, ha! ha! ha!.  

Anywho, I hope this post will uplift you in some way and I pray that you find the strength to go back, grab those dreams you though died and speak life to them. It's not to late.

Off The Shoulder Top + Palazzo Pants

Soo I decided to tap into my girly side with this look.  Although I really didn't have a vision for the top when I bought, I knew it would come in handy.  I was a little reluctant to buy these pants because the length is probably for someone at least 5'4 and they are see-through.  But once I tried them on, I knew I had to have them.  This was a perfect outfit for date night with hubs.  

Btw... what do you think of the new site?
