Silver Denim Shorts in Mexico

I saved the beachiest for the last part of photos from my Mexico trip (see part 1 & part 2). These silver denim shorts were another lucky sale find (only $10! Topshop’s end of season sale is amazing), and I wore them every day when I was there.

They’re actually the first pair of denim shorts I’ve bought in a long time. Even though I wear jeans almost daily, I’m not really a classic denim person. I own 8 pairs of jeans and only 3 are blue (and one is so pale I don’t think it counts).

I like jeans more for the fit than the fabric. Denim shirts and jackets aren’t really my thing. But I’m a sucker for embellished or decorated jeans. I love the messy silver paint on these shorts. It does make them stiff but they’re so cool I don’t mind.

I can never 100% agree with those ‘essential pieces every woman should have in their wardrobe’ articles. They always include things that aren’t me like plain white button downs, camel coats, and plain denim shorts. And that’s fine. How boring would it be if we actually did all own the same items?

Oh, and since this is the last Mexico post I have to say what a beautiful place! I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. I hope I can visit again soon. Just staying at an all inclusive meant I barely scratched the surface. There’s so much I didn’t see, like the cenotes, the pyramids and the colourful cities. I also didn’t eat a proper taco (I had a dessert one) – definitely need to fix that. Have you been to Mexico?

    Your abs dude. Just sayin’. And yes, I love paint splattered everything. I actually have this green army jacket that I plan on splattering and dabbing different spots of paint all over when I have a free sunday. It really does make everything so cool. Pretty much like your shorts. I’m also not such a denim person– I have a denim jacket but I barely wear it, paint splatters though– I think that does the trick.

      Aw thanks! It really does, it makes everything unique. I have a coworker that occasionally has to paint stuff at work and I’m obsessed with his painting sneakers. And I can’t wait to see that jacket! Sounds like a perfect DIY project.

    I`ve never been to Mexico. From what I see it is beautiful! I am a big fan of denim. I love jackets and skirts too. As for shorts I love seing them on others but I can’t wear them I don’t have the body ha ha. Petite but not thin enough for shorts( working on that). These shorts are great on you. Kisses!

      Thanks HsinWei! For us it wasn’t too far to travel so the 4 days was good just for a relaxing beach vacation, but I’d love to go back for at least a week to explore the sights and nature.
