I've honestly been scared of shorts in the past, nonetheless high-waisted shorts. Most of the ones I've found have been dauntingly short and for me, they're not ideal for day-to-day wear. I also have a recurring skin issue on my legs and not to mention a large scar at the back of my right ankle from a ruptured Achilles tendon injury when I was still a competitive gymnast.* Essentially, I've tried to stay away from shorts as much as possible, but in this unbearable heat, I've found it almost impossible to not wear them. I thought it was time to get over myself and pull out my black high-waisted shorts that I purchased last summer. These basic shorts are dressier and more structured than most and best of all, have pockets! I paired them with a fun printed, relaxed linen tee, basic pointed kitten heels, and my favorite bright bag for an easy look that focuses on the little details.
