if any of you follow me on twitter, you know that i have an OBSESSION with aztec print shorts. funny thing is, i have NO idea where this obsession came from. so i tried to figure it out:
from '08-'09, i wouldn't go ANYWHERE without my white denim cutoff shorts.
in the summer of 2010 i incorporated medium wash denim cutoffs, a pair of silky shorts & brought back a pair with a camo/jungle print (circa 2002).
as summer ended i couldn't fathom 6 months sans shorts! this led to the year-round shorts obsession (paired with tights, of course).
i started with my denim cutoffs. next i pulled an old pair of wool herringbone shorts out of my closet. and THEN things began to get out of control when i purchased a pair of sequined shorts.
I figured I'd wear them once (new years eve) but they became my weekend go-to! i actually wore them 4 times this winter, and will probably get one more wear out of them!
so, anyway, back to aztec shorts. when i was looking through spring 2011 runway shows i saw a lot of colored and printed shorts. i'd also been seeing a lot of navajo&aztec prints on the street (sweaters, bags, jackets, etc). i LOVE shorts (clearly) and i LOVE navajo&aztec prints, so in my mind i decided i somehow needed to find a combo of the two.
I guess my thinking isn't THAT out there, and i'm not the ONLY one who's coveting aztec print shorts, because after some investigation, i found these (yay!):
1. dolce vita 2. tibi 3. stolen girlfriend's club 4. ann taylor loft 5. topshop
my favorites are the tibi and the topshop, but i have a feeling there will be a lot more options this summer!
