Polka Shorts

Holiday weekends I always forget to get photos. I’m too damn busy. I’ll have my camera with me but I’ll never take it out of my bag.

This was last Sunday during 4th of July weekend. My husband and I met up with my best friend and her boyfriend for a few cocktails. On our walk home, I remembered I forgot to get my photos, and my husband happily stepped in to take a few for me.

It’s really funny to me how different it is taking photos in front of him instead of a tripod. I make really silly, goofy smiley faces when he takes my photos.  They’re 100% genuine, but goofy nonetheless.  He makes me kinda self concious in a cute girly way.  Which is weird for me because there’s nothing about me that’s normally cute and girly.  Ask any of my friends, they’d tell you I’d probably punch you in the face if you called me that.

Oh, and how awesome are these shorts!  I found them at the Market Publique loft sale here in Williamsburg  back several months ago.  They were actually unfinished.  They were much longer and not hemmed.  I had them altered and now totally love them.  I can’t believe I forgot I had them in my 30 challenge items until day 19.  You’ll probably be seeing these shorts a lot in the final 10 days of the challenge so I can make up for my forgetfulness.

    Chambray + Polka dots is something that I have really been wanting to try for a long time. Thanks for the extra inspiration!

      Thank you so much! I bought my Old Navy Chambray shirt last year, but you may have some luck finding one at a thrift store. Since it’s a trend that’s been around a few different decades you might be able to find a version there 🙂
