Rome has a thing for monuments. And boy are the beautiful! We did a self-guided walking tour of Rome’s main attractions and loved getting lost in between. The Eternal City is sprawling yet walkable, which makes it easy to pack a lot of sightseeing into a short period of time.
We recently went on an Italian holiday and our first stop was Venice. We arrived by boat from the airport, which is the best way to come into the city and take full advantage of the beauty of Venice. Scott and I wandered the narrow, winding streets and came across troves of shops, street vendors and eateries. The canals and bridges make navigating interesting, but that’s half of the fun!
I’ve been searching and searching for the perfect jean shorts and at last I’ve found them! Forgive me for singing Etta James’ classic (usually reserved for the first dance at weddings) in my head, but finding the perfect jean shorts is what summer dreams are made of. (Also a quick shout out to Queen B, for her amazing rendition of the song!)
Jean shorts are the quintessential summer staple and now that I’m in the second half of my twenties, I’ve decided short shorts shouldn’t be taking up prime real estate in my closet any longer. Not to say I don’t wear Daisy Dukes from time to time, but my goal is that any new shorts purchases should be of a longer length than to which I’ve been accustomed. The fact that I’m nearly 5’10” can make shopping for shorts of a decent length even more of a chore. Height can easily turn any pair of shorts into booty shorts, and that’s something I’m mindful of with my self-imposed style rule. But after months of dressing room try-ons and deliberation I’ve found them… the Joe’s Jeans Ex-Lover Short. These shorts are the perfect amount of distressed, an ideal length and a bit stretchy which makes them extremely comfortable. And although I just found them and it’s already mid-July, better late than never. They’ll be on heavy rotation for the rest of the summer and for seasons to come!
