Call me silly pinky pants because it’s raspberry sorbet pant time. It’s been so hot everywhere lately, we should all cut off our pants to make long shorts. Some call them city shorts or board shorts length, but I’m talking knee length. I don’t mind wearing short shorts around the house on hot days, but I’m not about to inflict the perpetual whiteness of my legs upon the general public. I’m a thriftstore queen, actually I can scope out any rack of clothes and come up with a few jewels in short order. Ask my sister about our last TJ Maxx trip together. She’s set for year.
Well back to the thriftstore for this entry. I picked up these pink ankle length pants that were clearly brand new. The pink is more raspberry than pepto, but cute for like $3. They had a rip at the hem of one leg and I really saw these more as shorts than pants because of said pinkness. Fetch my shears stat! I have a pair of Anthropologie shorts that have a 14" inseam that hit me right at the knee. I marked these pink guys at 14" + 2" seam allowance and chopped them off. A quick iron up of the hem and a zip zip through the machine and here we are. City shorts just in time for work tomorrow (we have no dress code at all–I could show up in those short shorts and no one would notice or care). But tomorrow is pink shorts Tuesday. Yeah! Take this as your encouragement to go through that closet and find some pants you don’t wear and cut them off for a cool shorts day of your own.
