Shorts are an area of contention for me. A must for keeping cool in the Summer, but so hard to find a pair that fits & flatters! I am actually super impressed by this pair from Forever21 (shocker coming from me). For me the key is a high waist, & leg holes that don't suffocate my thighs. Looking for similar styles? Check out my top picks below:

I've teamed up with Jess from Golden Swank and Kirsten from West End Girl along with lots of other fab bloggers to give one of you lucky ducks a three-piece set of gold foil fashion prints custom designed by West End Girl & $300 to spend however you want!

  1. These shorts looks so high end - I can't believe they are from F21! I have a tough time finding the right shorts too and have learned that shorts with some stretch and longer in seam (4-5") works best for me.

  8. with $300 CASH I'd probably pay a few bills and still have some $$ leftover to get a few new things just for fun, nothing I necessarily need! these photos are lovely Jessica, it makes me happy to see scenes from Nashville behind you!

    also, I'm digging how simple & classy (and versatile, I'm sure) that black tank is!

  19. Great giveaway! What would I do with $300... I think I would save it for a rainy day -- which really means another pair of Hunter rain boots for life up here in the rainy PNW! ;)

  37. Thanks lady - I generally only like Forever21 when I can shock and awe people at the amazing treasures to be found within, but it literally is a needle in a haystack search for me!

  38. Maybe I'm crazy, but looks like you've got a nice tan going in these photos; love it! I tried to tan some but I never have any excuse to be outside and lounging alone is just boring. I got a little color in my arms but otherwise I still look sickly pale. haha I need a nice trip to the beach, too!
