The short list

shorts, shorts, shorts, shorts!

Ladies, your legs have been itching to get out since those long and cold winter months. It's time to show off those legs this summer! Yes, it's time for shorts.There's nothing like the denim short, but this season shorts are being reintroduced as lace, pleats, loose fabric and prints with simple detailing.


We love the simple versatility: When paired with tights, they look dressy for a night out, but they look just as cute paired with sandals or wedges for day!

Exchanging long pants for bare legs is one's summer's great pleasure, but only if you feel good about how your legs look. Some people have flawless legs; you don't need a perfection permit to wear shorts. Here are some simple things you can do to bare your legs this summer with confidence.


Exfoliate your legs to remove dead skin cells. You can a buy body scrub at the store or make your own at home.

DIY Body Scrub ... my favorite: brown sugar / coconut oil / vanilla extract combination <3

Here are 14 easy homemade scrubs.

Use a new razor each time you shave because a dull one can irritate the skin. Some say sharpening your razor with jeans work really good.

Always use shaving gel/cream (if you're out, you can use hair conditioner or shampoo) to avoid nicks and cuts, ouch! 


Use lotion to seal in moisture and to avoid ashy legs, not cute. 

If you have pale legs or you want a little sparkle and shine, try a self-tanning lotion. This one works wonders.
L'Oreal self-tanning lotion
$8.70
Of course nothing beats leg exercises. Try the Women's Health leg exercises for lean legs.

Happy Tuesday and dare to bare all this summer!
