On Monday I stopped in Loft and tried on a few pair of shorts. Initially I had planned on posting this on Friday but Loft is having a sale and I wanted you to be able to take advantage of my ahem, “research”. With the code LOVEMOM you an take 30% off your entire purchase or 40% off if you use your Loft card. The pictures are not great but you’ll get the idea. I was actually on my way to an appointment so I didn’t have too much time, just enough to grab a few pair and snap some selfies!
For reference all the shorts I tried on are in my usual size at Loft, a size 4. And I didn’t buy anything that day, I was in a hurry and waiting for a sale (like the one going on now code LOVEMOM).
First up are these navy Eyelet Shorts. I chose them because of the eyelet, so pretty! They zipped up on the side which I don’t like, I always pinch my skin and this time was no exception. These will be super cute on someone just not me, I felt kind of “meh” about these. They really didn’t do anything for me. I grabbed this top (sorry I couldn’t find it online) to try on with all of the shorts. I wasn’t sure if I’d like the shirt untucked or sort of tucked. Sort of tucked just makes me look boxy and untucked makes me look sloppy. Sorry about the side shot but I wanted you to see the zipper and hook. You can see where the seam of my white denim left a nice imprint on my leg, almost looks like a scar. I will say that the eyelet was very pretty and they will be darling on the right person!
This next pair of striped side tie shorts were a nice, lightweight fabric. I thought the tie on the side was cute but once I had them on I felt like it was a little too revealing. Again, these are going to be adorable on someone just not me! Oh, they run kind of big too. They have an elasticized back so you can see in the one picture how far I was able to pull them out. Not that I go around pulling my waistband out but these were just too stretchy -outty for me. These shorts are available here.
Oh these turtle shorts were great! I have never owned anything like these so I thought I’d give them a try and I’m glad I did. I also like them with this top, fun pattern mixing! These Sea Turtle Riviera Shorts have a 6 inch inseam. I think these look the best on me as far as shorter shorts go. The fabric was thick without being too heavy so I feel like they’d hold their shape and not bag out. I think the shirt looks good tucked in. The Riviera short is classic Loft. Each year they offer these in a variety of colors and prints, if not for blog research I would have immediately gravitated towards this cut. The side view isn’t too bad, my tummy pooch is courtesy of Cinco de Mayo and Teacher Appreciation Week, lol!
Finally we have these Bermuda Roll Shorts . I love a longer short because it covers the parts of my legs I don’t love. With a longer short you need to be careful it’s not too long and it’s not too baggy or tight in the leg. These come in a bunch of different colors, 7 to be exact. I’d buy them in this blue color and wear them in place of denim shorts. They can easily be dressed up or down. I’d wear them to work with a camisole, jacket, and wedges.
