Y’all. Being in your early/mid twenties is such an awkward time. You are literally in the transitional phases of life, relationships, your career….and your wardrobe. 
Running around in oversize T-shirts and Nike shorts is no longer acceptable. Our bodies are changing, and our metabolism is slowing down. You can no longer booze 3 nights of the week, religiously eat taco Tuesday and still wear a crop top. Sigh…. 
I was going through my closet before I moved into my new apartment a few weeks ago and I still had like 4 pairs of denim cutoff shorts from Abercrombie & Fitch with, I kid you not like a 1″ inseam. I tried them on for kicks (by some miracle they still fit…holla!) and then thought to myself “Sweet Jesus Lynlee you are 25 years old. Time to put these away for good”. 
Denim shorts are a summertime staple for me, so I made it a mission this summer to stock up on a few pair that were trendy, and appropriate. I scored these Free People cutoffs on sale at Nordstrom which are probably the shortest pair I own (but not too short). I probably wear these like 3x a week dressed down with some gladiators and a tee, or with wedges like you see here. 
Below I have linked a few other pairs of “I am no longer 17 years old” denim shorts that are stylish, and appropriate! 
Happy Thursday Gals– I am already counting down to the weekend! Off to the lake to beat this 100 degree Texas heat.
