I Feel Pretty | Cut Off

Denim Cutoffs Floral Blouse 2

Remember this post last Friday where I said I hadn’t worn denim shorts since 1995 (then showed you said awful shorts)?  Well, I guess you could say that I’m making up for lost time.  I bought these denim boyfriend shorts last week at Old Navy and have already worked them into the rotation more times than I want to admit.

This is the simple look I created with them to participate in Amber’s Real Girl Style Challenge on Friday.  I hope you’ll join the link up and show us your cut offs too!

  • I love denim shorts and you styled these perfectly! Fabulous as always! Susan

    You look TOO cute today. I’m still looking for a pair of cut-offs. I need them a little bit longer. My husband has a pair of jeans that are pretty distressed. Maybe I’ll cut them off and call them “husband shorts.” 😉 I’m sure he’ll appreciate that. LOL

  • I absolutely love that floral top, you are SO gorgeous!!!

  • Those shorts look great on you! I love the boyfriend style lately – they’re so comfy! I’m glad you found a pair that you love!

  • Your pretty face is absolutely competing with the adorable outfit Alison!!!!

  • Cute shorts, I’m a big fan of cut offs, but this year I seem to be wearing a lot more print shorts.

  • You go girl!! You have gorgeous legs and should not be afraid to show them!

  • Perfect outfit for summer. I recently bought a pair of shorts very similar at the Loft and have been wearing them non stop as well. Def will come back on Friday to link up!


  • For someone with as much natural beauty as you, it hardly matters what you wear — you look fabulous in everything. Even the simplest of fashions. I admire how amazing you look in these pictures.

  • I love that sweet floral top with the cut offs. I really want to get myself a pair of shorts like those. Those are the perfect length. Not too teeny bopperish, you know?

    P.S. Your hair is gorgeous!

  • what a fun party! i can’t wait to participate…

  • Love that top, it’s so pretty!

    You look Gorgeous in your Denim Cut-offs, Alison. I am also loving your Earrings, Girly Camisole and of course your Wedges. Excited to check out your next remix of a 7 for 7. I am really hoping to do it next month, since this month was not a good one, time-wise, for me to participate in it.

    Stop by when you can.

    Have a Great Rest of the Week, Ada. =)

  • Haha the sad thing is I’ve seen shorts similar to those ‘trying’ to make a comeback. Please, no! I do love yours though! You look amazing in them! And I love that pretty flowy top.

  • I just bought some denim shorts too! In fact, I purchased about 5 pair of shorts from Macy’s last weekend and a couple of pair from Forever 21. I previously owned two pair of shorts but my upcoming trip to Las Vegas prompted me. I like the way you styled your shorts and can’t wait to check out the other ladies who participated in the challenge.

  • I love this feminine top- it’s something I would have in my closet!

  • I am glad you gave cutoffs another chance, cause you look great in them! Love the earrings as well.

  • I have some denim shorts that I have owned for over 2 decades. I wear them constantly during the Summer and they are not nearly as cute as the ones you have going on (20 years of wear will do that to denim). Thanks for hosting!

  • Cute look Alison! I like the floral ruffle top. 🙂 I’ll be back for Friday’s link up.

    No joke, I JUST put these exact ON shorts in my online shopping cart right before I came here and saw you wearing them. Seeing how great they look on you definitely just solidified my decision to buy them! Happy Wednesday 🙂

  • I actually love me some denim shorts. To me, they’re super versatile.

  • Those shorts look so great on you!!! I love them! I’m going to have to check those out at Old Navy!

  • These cut offs look amazing on you, with this crazy summer heat you have a chance to make up for lost time:)

  • Alison, this is such a pretty summer look, I love it and you are beautiful!
    The soft colours of your top are amazing and suit you so well.

    Love shorts, any kind, I’m a petite woman and feel its the length that suits me and I’m confortable with…and they are so versatile: you can wear them with sandals, flat shoes, wedges, high-heels, boots (in winter), you mention it! Oh, and I feel pretty when wearing mini-skirt too ;O)

  • So pretty!

  • Your top is so cute, I love the print!

    Once I hit 30 (and past my ideal weight), shorts are not flattering for me. I have yet to find shorts that flatter my short, hourglass, chubby figure. I would love to know what kind of shorts work for me.
    Your hair looks pretty. It looks super bouncy and full.

  • This top is so sweet!

  • Nothing like a great pair of denim shorts. I love pairing them with a silk blouse or blazer to dress them up a bit

  • You look fantastic!! Love the shorts, I need a new pair myself!

  • You are so gorgeous! Love your post, as always 🙂

    Thank you for choosing to link up with Style Sessions!

  • Love the longer shorts – I FINALLY found a boyfriend pair last year that actually fit my thighs and I’m in love with them! This is super cute with the wedges – might have to steal that idea 🙂

  • Love this on you. Here’s the thing is 40+ too old for these? I think maybe!

  • Love those shorts and that top. I’m going to link up too.

  • You look gorgeous! What an amazing cute, comfortable look! Loving your blog and I am definitely gonna have to get in on one of your link-ups! Love it!

  • I still can’t believe you haven’t worn cutoffs since 1995!! LOVE that you went with a boyfriend style. They look great on you. Thanks for being one of the featured bloggers for the Denim Cutoff Challenge!
