The Short Story featuring CocoRose

Welcome Summer

It’s time to show off your stems!

Summer has arrived and it’s officially shorts season. We stopped by one of our favorite OC boutiques, CocoRose in beautiful and historic downtown Orange, to find this season’s star clothing item-Shorts. OC girls love their short shorts! We put together 6 looks including 4 Shorts and 2 Rompers to inspire you to show off your stems this summer.

I know what some of you are thinking….. I can’t wear short shorts, I’m too_______.  (I’m personally included in this thought) Then don’t! Try an alternative like  boyfriend shorts or bermudas. I personally love boyfriend shorts (of course because I love boyfriend jeans) they’re longer and much more forgiving, plus for me, they are age appropriate.

Remember… ALL the looks we show you on  OC STYLE REPORT are to inspire you to try something new and different. Step outside your comfort zone. You don’t have to leap just take the first step.
