How to Update Your Shorts

Happy Monday everyone! Or considering that you may just be getting back from spring break, maybe I should just say “Monday.” I know I definitely could have used a longer spring break, but you make the most out of what you’ve got! 

Now that it’s officially spring, I’ve truly been dying to bust out my bare legs. I’m definitely a skirt kind of girl, but I love the freedom of movement that shorts give you. I have a million pairs of shorts that i’ve just gotten over and tons of jeans that could be refashioned into shorts. So I’ve collected a few different ways to update your bottoms without breaking the bank!

The All-Over Lace 

There’s nothing quite as feminine and delicate as lace. Try these on for size when you want the femininity of a skirt, but the comfort of shorts.
