it's one thing to be wearing shorts in the middle of winter but to be at the beach in them is another, right? i know, i'm silly. i actually would sit at the beach everyday in the winter just not in shorts. although, it wasn't too cold...it was quite nice to feel the warmth of the sun on my legs. i got these crocheted shorts from charlotte russe back in december. they ran a little big so i had to alter them and it was kind of difficult working with the crochet trim. i'm regretting not getting them also in the cream, they're adorable and i was surprised to even find some there. i'm wearing them with a diy feather necklace, bdg. silk blouse and ebay boots.
