I am in a crisis. Yes, I decided to skip all formalities that letter writing contains, to instead direct the focus to my crisis. But, don’t be afraid, I am confident that I am not the only one who suffers from this crisis.
Today is the 20th of September, which means it has officially been 20 days since the start of spring. Why, this may paint pictures of flowers blossoming, the sun shining (to my beloved city Sydney, please note that in spring, the sun should be shining), and of course a fairly complete summer wardrobe.
However, this is far from the case. In my opinion a summer wardrobe is far from complete without a pair of denim shorts.
Ah, the denim shorts, so humble yet so vital in a wardrobe. I tend to every year after a long search; abandon any hopes of finding a pair of denim shorts. Yet, after seeing photos of NYFW with Alex Chung’s ultra-perfect pair of denim shorts, I knew that this was my season to find my perfect pair.
I began with creating a criterion for these shorts, they had to be;
- Not looking like a bear had attacked the shorts before I bought them.
- My bum couldn’t be seen
Easy, you would think.
I began humbly looking around my local stores, found a pair that ticked all three boxes, however, when I saw the price tag, I knew I had to add a fourth criterion.
- Under $100
My quest began online. And it was hard-hitting, if it wasn’t attacked by bears, it wasn’t denim. If it was denim, you could see my bum. I bought a few, I returned them all. After much exasperation (mainly, with returning the items), I decided to hit the shops.
And, boy did I hit the shops. Between brunches and catch ups, the quest remained. The plan to find the “not-so-hard” perfect denim shorts resulted in a difficult and tedious struggle.
Unfortunately, I leave this blog post open. Who knows if my summer will be filled with denim shorts, but no doubt I will keep you updated.
That is all from me and my soon-to-be denim shorts,
Love L xx.
