Jorts

Thought it's returned to freezing cold and pouring rain here in Atlanta, the two Spring preview days we got last week have left me dreaming of spring and summer fashion....particularly one of my favorite trends.....the Jort. Yes, that's right. I love jorts - but only when done properly. Jorts that were jeans in a previous life are a definite no.

But when done right, I think jorts are the pefect Spring/Summer fashion statement .



Tell me ladies....are you a jort fan? Or are you the girl in the corner making fun of all the jort wearers?
 It's ok - I totally used to be on Team B. I'm a recent convert!

Cute fashions! I would wear any of the outfits you posted.
I don't usually wear shorts, I'm more of a skirt girt :-)

Abby said...

Ha, I've always been the one making fun of the jort wearers, but the pics you posted were pretty cute! Maybe I'll change my ways....

Ashley said...

I am a jorts fan FO SHO! I love rockin daisy dukes..especially with cute boots or flats

ugh now i want to go buy a new pair! I will never and have never cut jeans into jorts..it just screams "hillbilly sleep with my cousin"..nahtt for me!

xoxox your blog meetup sounded FUN!!!

Beth said...

it depends on the jort wearer for sure. if you're a guy, jorts are a no-no. but if you're a girl and your jorts are fashion forward like the ones you have above they are fine.

i had a dream i had to wear jorts that were like 18 sizes bigger than what i wear in real life and they fit and i was mortified.

Rissy said...

I have to admit... the super skanky shorts I was wearing in yesterday's post were actually worn in public this past summer. Can we still be friends.

Today is officially jorts day in blog world... third post I've read about them! I'm getting good ideas of where to replace mine though!

Sundresses and Smiles said...

i'm a fan of jorts! i recently bought a pair that are a dark denim and am loving them! now i wish the weather would just warm back up so i can wear them!

Kyndi said...

my husband rocks the jort, hipster style...i definitely make fun of him :)

megan said...

A fan if worn in the correct way! Even though I make fun of TN & FL fans for wearing them. :)

Michelle said...

Cute outfits! I can't wait for summer!!

Sam {fitnessfoodandfaith.blogspot.com} said...

i'm all about the jorts. i'm sorry about the return to crappy weather...hopefully spring will return soon!

Tatiana said...

Oh, I love them! I'm always scared to wear any type of short, since I feel like my legs are not made for them. Haha. But I told myself that this summer I'm giving it a try darn it! And some jorts are definitely on my list :-)

Molly said...

if i thought i could rock them, i totally would. they can look really cute if styled properly!

Lindsay @ My Happily Ever After said...

I like jorts when I can find them in the right length for my 5'10 body! Otherwise half my butt is hanging out and that is just NOT a good look :)

Julip Made said...

Definitely with you Lindsay, at 5'9" it can be hard to find the perfect length to show of the legs without looking hoochy. I'm on definitely on team A with you Ashley because when done right, they are summers best piece of casual clothing!

Miss Southern Prep said...

Cute outfits! And I agree, jorts are only cute when worn properly!

Ashley said...

I think that they are acceptable with the right outfit! I definitely own a couple of pairs, but I only bought them last summer....haven't been rockin' them since 4th grade or anything! :) Happy Wednesday, lady!

Jenna said...

I am in love with jorts!!! They're so much more comfortable than short shorts and have that all american girl look to them - so bummed my summer is turning into fall while your winter is turning into Spring - can we swap!?

1. I heart jean shorts in the summmer. yes. jean shorts. I cannot call them jorts

2. Why can't I call them jorts? Jorts are what my hubs and his bffs in college would make out of akwardly tight jeans... oh too short. like EMBARASSINGLY SHORT. frayed edges and all. and do a homerun derby to see who can get the most home runs over the fence.

ri.dic.u.lous.

theres a diff in jean shorts & jorts. jean shorts are cute. jorts are what gator fans wear on game day with a wife beater. I love jean shorts -- i had the cuuuutest pair of dark denim ones last summer

Lacey said...

I agree..it's all about what you wear them with! Cute outfits! :)

Beatriz Craven... That Girl in Pearls said...

I would definitely wear those either way!! I have to say, I have never heard the term "jort" haha! I said "jeggings" in front of my sister ONCE... never again. She didn't let me live it down for like a whole week. I think it's clever haha!

Hope you have a wonderful day!
