There are so many reasons why nothing can ever replace true vintage. Whether it be the hunt for specific pieces, the quality of the items or the novelty factor of it all, there is just something undeniably special about vintage.  Since my hips are over 15 inches bigger than my waist buying vintage shorts and trousers is not always an easy task.  It's either the waist is perfect and the hips are too big or the hips are perfect and the waist is to big.  It's definitely frustrating, but it also means that when I find a pair that fit me it is fate and I get SO excited.  That's the joy of vintage shopping for ya!

I wanted to show-off my favorite pair of vintage shorts, because not only do they fit great, but they're such a classic summer staple.  I have a love affair with stripes, which can be dangerous since they're not always flattering.  These shorts however, in my opinion, don't have an unflattering look. They may seem like a 'generic' find, but it took me forever to find vintage shorts and the fact that these are beachy and fun makes them my favorite summer vintage item.  I prefer to buy my vintage in person, but I'm so glad I took the plunge with these.
