FashionTrend to Try: Jean Shorts + Tights

With spring fast approaching, shorty shorts are hitting the shelves left and right. I put on a pair the other day and decided it was still too breezy outside and by far too early to be showing so much pale winter skin.

That’s when I was inspired to pair my favorite black opaque tights with last summer’s denim shorts.

The combination is so wonderfully simple. What better way to safely transition from chilly winter weather to fresh and sunny spring mornings?

The expert bloggers pictured here have mastered the whole jean short/tight pairing. I love it best with cut-off shorts or those with a cuffed hem. Paired with a loose top and a crisp blazer or crop jacket, the look is perfectly pulled together.

For footwear, try ankle booties or flats. Also, the addition of a long, chunky necklace adds the perfect finishing touch.

MusicThe Darling, Sarah Darling!

I now present our favorite fan: the wondrous, the beautiful, and the charming Sarah Darling! Here is Sarah Darling’s tale of finding Lulus.com, music, writing, and her calling.

When I travel for music, I always grab tons of magazines for the road. I happened to grab a People Stylewatch about 6 months ago, and my eyes caught this really cute dress. It said it was from Lulus.com!

I’m a dress freak and a girly girl. When I got to my hotel room, I checked out the site and ended up buying a ton of stuff. I fell in love with lulus right from the start!

My favorites are the Love Fool Dress and my Miss Me jeans! I like jeans with a little bling!

Ever since I was a little girl, I was into fashion. I’ve never been afraid of color and I consider my look very classic. I have always loved wearing dresses. I think it’s because I am a fan of the 40′s. My favorite designer ever is Betsey Johnson, if that says anything about me.

I grew up a small-town girl who loves fishing, baseball and the outdoors, but I might be wearing a fancy dress while doing it. (Ha ha!) I’m the type of girl who wears cute stuff while I cook! I am a fan of women dressing up and feeling feminine!

As I get older, I’ve been doing a lot more accessorizing. I’m totally obsessed with scarves right now. I think I might have a hundred!

I’m loving the tights and legging with dresses. I think that will always be in style!

Music has always been a part of who I am. I was born singing, I swear. Been wanting to do this since I can remember. My music is very real and I consider my songs little stories of my life. When I write a song, I put my heart into it.

I started writing at age 23. I moved to Nashville at 20 and it took a failed relationship and just being away from my family to really inspire me to start writing music.

“Jack Of Hearts” was written about a boy that I fell madly in love with. It just so happened that when we were having problems in our relationship, a friend into astrology said that he was the Jack of Hearts. Apparently we all have a card that lines up with our birthday. Check out your card. It’s so much fun! I wrote a little song about it anyway!

My favorite part of making the album was seeing my songs come to life. You are so much more personally invested when the songs are yours and your diary. My goal is to always move people. That’s what music is all about to me. I consider it my gift in life.
