Summer Outfit: An Unexpected Element!

Hi, everyone!
I'm really excited to show you this outfit, because even if it looks pretty normal to you, there is something unexpected about it. I'll go into more detail about that in just a minute, but for now, enjoy this outfit I put together for church this past Sunday! It's super hot where I live, especially since it's summer now. If I'm being honest, I find it difficult to put together cute outfits in the summer because there is a limit to how much you can wear without suffocating. In the fall, if you want to make an outfit interesting, you add more layers. In the summer, you don't have that option! But I really liked the way this outfit came together. It was cute and put together, but kept me cool in the heat.

Alright, so you ready to learn about the unexpected part of this outfit? Drum roll please...
I'm wearing men's shorts!
I know, weird right? Funny story -- my brother bought these shorts, but they were too small for him, so he put them in our "get rid of" pile of clothes. I saw them laying there, and I got this crazy notion that they might fit me. I tried them on, and wonder of wonders, they fit! I'll admit that I was a little skeptical about wearing men's shorts, but I actually really like these! They add texture and polish to my outfit, and while I love denim shorts, denim just wouldn't have given my outfit the same "put together" look that these fancy shorts did. I have to tell you something about men's shorts though -- the pockets are incredibly deep! For girl's shorts, we have these tiny pockets that barely hold anything. Men's shorts have these vast abysses that hang down almost your entire thigh! I guess it makes sense though, because guys don't carry purses...
I hope you enjoyed reading this post, and I wish you a fantastic day!

P.S. Would you ever consider wearing something from the men's department?

  1. Aw, that's so cute! :) Yes, I surprisingly wear boy's clothes almost every day because at my Hot Topic you can't tell which side is the men's/women's lol. xD


    1. Thank you, Izzy! I know, the men and women tees at Hot Topic are hard to tell apart! I probably have at least one guy's shirt from there too.:)

  2. Super cute outfit, Kendra! And that is too funny about the shorts! They look great on you, and with the other pieces in your outfit.

    1. Thanks, Katie!:) I'm excited to see how many outfits I can make with these shorts this summer!
