Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you are all out spending the day with family and friends and celebrating this freedom we enjoy and remembering it doesn’t come free.
It’s also the first Tuesday of the month and time to share a little Ageless Style! This month Jennie chose to showcase shorts and show off how women over 40 can still rock a pair. Be sure to share your favorite look and follow along with all the looks today. Here is my short love story!

Even though showing off my legs is not quite the highlight it was in my younger days, I still cannot imagine passing on shorts in the heat of a Texas summer. For me it is all about finding the right length. Once I became a mom, I grabbed longer shorts for years before finally realizing they did not flatter my legs. Too short and, well, nobody wants to see that. Finding a pair to hit in just the right spot to make my legs appear longer and flatters their size a bit more was key. The perfect length for me appears to be 4-5″ depending on the style.
I was on the lookout for a black pair to dress up a little for date nights and was thrilled to find this pair of city shorts on sale. My other tips for making the legs look more flattering in shorts? Wearing with a wedge sandal or heels and definitely adding some self tanner. I used Rodan + Fields foamless sunless tanner 20 minutes before we left for dinner and love the color it added.
Typically I would not try a top with the waist accentuated but the color and style drew me in. The fact it was 50% off may have also helped! Regardless I am so thrilled I gave it a shot because the outfit came together seamlessly.
This clutch has been such a hit from Stella & Dot it has been on backorder forever. I ordered in March and it finally arrived last week! The colors were even more fabulous in person!
When you pick an outfit that is both comfortable and flattering to your shape, you can be yourself which always makes for a much better date night! Of course I can’t help but smile when Keith is playing the role of photographer.
