the long and short of it

fashion + beauty

May 10, 2022

Short season is here!!! Get those gorgeous legs out from under those pesky pants and let them breathe a litle bit in summer. For me, that means lots of sprints + cardio coupled with squats and lunges for good measure = legs have always been my problem area so I have to keep at it for sure.

But with that, I wanted to chat about the ever encompassing goodness that are shorts… from workout wear and everyday athleisure to stylish bottoms perfect for accompanying a fancy top, shorts are often one of my most worn styles because of the practicality and ease of wear. Let’s chat about a few essentials I swear by and then a few more for good measure 🙂
