Design Diary | Short Story


Dear Diary,

Who wears short shorts? This lady does!! When the weather is like this everyone should have a pair of fun shorts to throw on. Cutoff shorts, in particular, are perfect for lax days in the park, to wear to festivals, or just to kick around in on warm sunny days.

You can find cutoff shorts at just about any retailer, but it’s the vintage quality denim shorts that can last for years. High-waisted cutoffs have been making a comeback for the last few spring/summer season, being sold on a number of Etsy shops, Ebay vendors and Urban Outfitters.

When looking for vintage high-waisted shorts on Etsy, I found this Dust to Diamonds pair of two-toned green and black high-waisted shorts. The funky color blocking in the shorts instantly grabbed my attention; they would definitely be something I could see in my wardrobe.



The variation in denim makes them one-of-a-kind, and can be paired with just about anything. Whether you throw on a fitted tank or a vintage band tee, chuck taylors or wedges, you’ll be stylish, cute, and comfortable.
