I spy, I buy: a short shorts story

Do you ever check out a favorite blogger’s outfit and think to yourself, “I must. have. that.” Twenty times a day, you say? Yeah, me too. But sometimes a particularly tempting item is just impossible to pass up…

Last week while perusing The Book, I spotted a link to a new post on a local friend Aimee’s blog, The Chiffon Chronicles. I love Aimee’s style, and her anecdotes on balancing mommyhood, a career, and the hectic day-to-day usually crack me up and make me nod subconsciously while clucking, “Amen, sister,” at my Macbook screen.

I clicked over. She was wearing these adorable mustard printed shorts, and I thought to myself, “hmm, so cute… probably JCrew.” Then I scrolled to the bottom of the post and read that said shorts were from Target. Recently.

It all happened really fast — like a bargain high induced out-of-body experience — but the next thing I know I was at Target.com, adding a pair to my cart and checking out before my PayPal account even knew what hit it. Two minutes. Max. If that’s not impulse buying ya’ll, I don’t know what is.

Most of my impulse buys {especially those of the e-tail variety} and up disastrous, but this one had a happy ending. The shorts arrived late last week, and I was quite impressed with the quality and fit. Even The Mister commented on their quality and style. Way to go, Tar-jhay; you never let me down. And thanks for letting me steal your britches, A! ;-)

Check out how Aimee styled hers here!

    When I saw the short-pant combination, my first thought was,” How the h* is she going to make the shoes work here?” But you did it, girl. Nice work. Go, you!

    Those shorts are really cute- as is the color! Never seen shorts that shade before!

  • Corinne 05/01/2012 at 4:10 am

    These shorts were definitely worth buying! Love the pattern. Haha I’m queen of the impulse purchase – I’ve really got to break the habit! Luckily most of my favourite stores don’t have online shopping…. :)

    LOL I have totally done this! I am so glad that you did. I love these shorts! You might have inspired the same behavior from me. You already “made” me buy the Lauren Conrad leather shorts. Love this look!

  • patriciastreeter 04/30/2012 at 10:49 pm

    Love the look and thw quirky back story! I’m glad the impulse buy worked out!

    Those are amazing! I don’t own anything yellow, but I may have to make an exception for these shorts.

    Your hair is getting so long! Very pretty :)
