“Unfortunately, finding flattering jorts can be as difficult as searching for your favorite pair of denim pants…

Don’t induce one more worry wrinkle—we have a genius solution, courtesy of celebrity stylist Lindsay Albanese. Using a pair of old blues, the E! Style Collective member showed us how to create designer-looking jean shorts she already knows will flatter and fit her body.”

Lindsay Albanese E!

 

  1. Put on a pair of old jeans you’re willing to cut. Opt for thicker denim; if the fabric is too thin, the jean shorts will be tight and hug your thighs. Using a fabric pen or regular pencil, draw a line two inches longer than where you’ll like the shorts to ideally end.

2. Take off the jeans and lay them out flat on the floor. Optional: Iron the jeans beforehand to ensure a flat surface. Cut along the pencil-drawn line.

3. Fold the jeans in half, aligning the waistband and side hems. Make sure that all sides match up or else the cut will be uneven. Take the scissors and cut along the previous cut edge.

4. Once your pants are cut, throw the shorts in the dryer so that the cut edges naturally fray. You can also roll the shorts to your desired length.

 

Voilà! Now you have comfortable jean shorts you can live in all summer long.

I died and went to Tulum….

Tulum is such a magical and special place 1.5 hours south of Cancun. From the shopping to the beaches, and THE FOOD. Everything is incredible. A must see!!

I’m very picky about wearing multi-colored pieces but this poncho cover-up was the perfect blend of all the right hues

The struggle of redecorating as a renter is real.

It can be so limiting to achieve your design vision for your space when you’re renting so I turned to DIY expert Kelly Edwards to help show me how to roll up my sleeves and get crafty with my space.  I was able to temporarily cover-up my 1960′s wood flooring with a floating floor (which I never knew existed!), added a fresh coat of paint on the walls and replaced some of my old furnishings with more modern pieces. The outcome was even better than I could have predicted!

All you need is a bikini and bug spray!

There are thousands of freshwater cenotes in Riviera Maya, Mexico. I highly suggest putting it on your sight seeing list next time you’re in the region. Just beautiful!

Today, I shows you how to do the perfect sleeve cuff. Hey, it’s the smallest details that can have the greatest impact.

“We all know the way we did it in grade school,” said Lindsay, referring to the cuff of a burrito roll-like method. “But the street style way to do it—and editorial way—starts with taking the bottom of the sleeve, and you bring it up as high as you want,” the stylist suggested.Screen Shot 2015-05-11 at 11.34.44 AM

1. Turn the edge of the cuff upward.

2. Drag the cuff edge up to the bicep.

3. Fold the sleeve again, stopping an inch or two away from your bicep.

4. Gently tug at the rolled sleeve the to smooth out the fabric.

5. Fold the sleeve upward one more time, stopping an inch or two from the sleeve’s natural edge. Depending on the shirt, this should create a tighter fit on the sleeve.

6. Rotate the sleeve along the arm so the shirt cuff is turned out.

“You don’t want to hide the cuff!” Lindsay noted. “The cuff is the best part.”

The best tip, Lindsay reminded us, is not to try too hard. Style should feel natural.
