it’s not your average fling

29 May

My summer so far has led me to the search for my warm weather soul mate.  The one who will lovingly envelop me.  Who will comfort me, but still make me feel a little edgy.  Who will look a little roughed up, short, or even have some tears, but will still be classy.  Oh, you thought I was talking about a boy? No, no, no.  I meant my search for the perfect pair of high waisted shorts!

I am not only searching, I am craving and dying for the perfect denim shorts.  Don’t get me wrong, my ex, the lowrise, has treated me well.  He was there for me at the beach when I wanted to look chill, at parties when I wanted to look cute but not like I tried to hard, and never complained when we just hung around the house with a t-shirt.  But I feel like I’m ready to take things to the next level.

With the high waisted look as a leading trend this season, you would think it would be easy to score a killer pair.  That’s where I was wrong.  First of all, when it actually comes down to it, it’s pretty damn hard to tell when shorts are high waisted and when they aren’t by just looking at the rack… or maybe I’m a little spatially challenged.  Either way, it is a constant battle determining if shorts will fall below or above my naval when I work up the effort to bring them to the fitting room.  Today at the mall, one store was nice enough to clearly mark the cut of their jeans; however, all the signs tragically stared at me screaming “lowrise” one after the other.

So until the day does come for me to spend seven minutes in dressing room heaven with my new summer beau, the high waisted shorts, here is a little eye candy to keep me (and you) satisfied.
