Bottoms are probably the least exciting part of my wardrobe, but definitely the most important. They're the workhorse of my closet, and each item needs to be exactly how I want it, since they get the most wear out of everything in my closet.
My polka dot chambray shorts have surprisingly become an item that I can't live without. I'm usually not a polka dot kind of girl, (I'll leave all the polka dot wearin' to Nicole, she does it better, anyways), but I wore these so much, that I had to restrain myself from wearing them again for awhile. They seem to go with anything and the cut+material of them makes them appear to be all fancy and ish.
For me, 2014 was the year of black shorts; 2014 was also the year that I gave up on low rise jeans. I picked up a pair of midrise skinny jeans a few months ago, and I swear my whole life has changed since then. I've also found that A-line skirts (with pockets of course, all skirts should have pockets!) are more flattering on me than circle skirts.
Although the pair of midrise jeans I bought changed my life, they are far from perfect. They stretch out easily, have already faded in color, and aren't as skinny as I'd like 'em to be. I'm really hoping to find the perfect brand of jeans for me so I can replace all three (count 'em, 3!) pairs of jeans that I own.
I'm notorious for never trying on clothes when I shop and it usually works out okay, but I didn't try on the pair of black shorts that I have before buying them and they're a tad bit too big. Also, they collect lint like no man's business, so they desperately need to be replaced before summer rolls around.
Skirts generally aren't part of my day to day outfits, but I do need to replace my black skirt, and it would be nice to pick up some A-line skirts in a few other colors because they seem to be the base of almost all my "formal" outfits. Just add a button down or a nice blouse and you're set.
