Top: H&M | Shorts: H&M | Glasses: old (similar) | Bag: H&M

Finding jeans for winter – UGH.

Finding shorts for summer – DOUBLE UGH.

The older I get, the more I hate how shorts look on me. I’m not a stick figure, so short shorts look awful, plus I feel too old for those! What I find myself loving are tailored shorts because they look the best on me and I always love the longer length. These shorts come in 2 other colors, and are under $25! And PS – this post is not sponsored at all by H&M – I’m just really loving all ofΒ their stuff lately! πŸ™‚

We are on our wayΒ home from Cabo, where we have spent the past week on vacation. It was seriously a total dream! The hotel was hands down AH-mazing, and I have officially gained 10 pounds from all of Β the amazing food (my personal favorite were the chips,Β guacamoleΒ and cocktails they bring to your room everyday at 4PM!).

I’ll be sharing some pics from the trip on my Instagram this week, and my first blog post from Mexico will be on Thursday! Hope to see you then!

    I should try tailored shorts- because I hate how shorts look on me too.

  12. Love the color match of the top/shorts and that bag. Subtle but so good! And sounds like you had a lovely stay, wouldn’t mind that room service either haha! Xx

  13. Jackie says:

    Oh Cabo, sounds like so much fun! I can’t wait to see your pictures. Tailored shorts are the bomb! You look so fab, you gotta love H&M. They always have the best deals. I hear ya with the short shorts! I’m not a big fan of them either. I feel like since I’ve past my 30’s, I’m too old for them. Hope you’re having a great start to your week.

    xo, jackie

    I’m so glad to hear you guys had a great time! The chips and guac delivery would be my downfall haha! I love the longer length of these shorts! I always have a hard time find cute shorts that aren’t super short too. H&M really does have cute stuff. Have a great week, Shauna!

    xo, Rachel

    I never wear shorts, except workout shorts. I HATE my legs! These look super cute on you. I love the neutral look!


  16. Elise says:

    I was JUST having the shorts conversation at work. I think to myself, nobody really wants to see my pasty untoned legs. You on the other hand look gorgeous in these shorts. Love this neutral look. You blouse is so pretty!

    Cannot wait to read all about your amazing vacation. These khaki colored tailored shorts are great and look so good all monochromatic. I love H&M.

    And yet what I see is someone statuesque with gorgeous hair, even more gorgeous legs, and a wardrobe of coats I simply must raid one day. I mean, I should technically hate you but I can’t because you also have a gorgeous personality, Shauna πŸ™‚ xoxo

    I love these shorts on you! Also, so jealous about your Cabo trip, it sounds so fun. I always wanted to go. Chips, guacamole, and cocktails every day, omg sounds amazing haha!
