Denim shorts are one of our staples for spring and summer. We have had some of you all request some that are a little longer than the short ones you see floating around, so we thought we would round up some of our favorites.
We usually opt for the shorter length, since we are on the shorter side (5’1″).
This pair (#1) is shorter and also has some stretch, so we love that they’re comfortable.
We just ordered this Agolde pair (#5) and went with a size 24. We are in between sizes 23 and 24 and just sized up for a looser fit. We love that they’re not overly distressed.
In case you all didn’t know, we are 5’1″, so finding jeans that fit well can be a struggle, so we thought we would share some of our go to pairs that don’t stretch out, and fit perfectly, and see below for more!
If you’re looking for a black pair, #1 and #2 are both great options and come in the shorter lengths. We are size 0 or 24 short.
For a non-distressed pair, we love #3 and #4 and are both the petite size 0/24 in them.
As far as a white pair, we love this #5 pair, and we are size 24 short.
Shorts can be tricky to find, and our favorite pair is all sold out, but these pairs #6, #7, #8 are all great and run true-to-size.
For distressed jeans, we love #9, #11, and #12 because they’re super stretchy ( we are size 0 short). #10 and #13 are both more of a true denim, and fit true-to-size.
We are back with another Wellness Wednesday post for you all! We have been making some plant-based dishes for dinner that you all asked about, so we wanted to share some of the recipes with you all! Even if you are not plant-based, these are easy to make, and good to serve with fish or chicken, too!
Y’all know we are pretty petite at only 5’1″, so when we found these flare jeans from Walmart, we were SO excited! We love how they make you look so much taller, and really elongate your legs, which we can all benefit from, right?
We wanted to share some tips on how to style these kinds of jeans, in case you have a pair, or weren’t sure on how to wear them!
Hem them properly
You want them to be long, but not too long. In our case, we could have hemmed them a little shorter, but you still want them long enough!
Pair with heels
We suggest wearing a higher wedge or heel with these to make you legs look even longer. We wouldn’t recommend wearing a flat shoe with them.
We love how these jeans look with a moto jacket or blazer, depending on how casual or dressy you want to go. You can layer tees or sweaters underneath!
Keep it simple
We suggest keeping the outfit simple and minimal, meaning don’t combine too many trends in one outfit, so that you can really highlight the flare jeans.
We found these flared jeans and other staple fall pieces at Walmart. We love that we can find really cute pieces around under $30, yes please!! They also offer free two-day delivery on a lot of their items, and in-store pickup, which is so convenient!
We love denim on denim all year, especially in the summer! What is so great about denim is that it never goes out of style. Usually, we will wear some kind of basic tee with jeans, but sometimes, we love mixing it up and doing an all denim look.
Of course, there are ways to botch this kind of outfit and end up looking like you walked straight off a farm 😉 That is NOT what we are going for! We wanted to share some of our tips for styling an all denim look for you all.
Mix it up with different washes
When wearing denim together, we like opting for two different washes to break it up. In this case, we are doing a lighter washed denim button down shirt (this one is SO soft– wearing size xs) with some darker skinny jeans (wearing 00 short). You could also do the reverse, so a darker top or denim jacket, with lighter jeans.
Keep the denim to clothing, only
We do not suggest wearing any kind of denim accessories, like bags or shoes. It just is way too much going on in our opinion! We suggest neutral accessories, or even a pop of color, like red.
Stay away from too much “western” vibes
All denim can give you a “western” vibe, so we recommend not adding in too many western pieces like belts and boots. Of course, some cute booties or boots would be fine, but we don’t suggest adding in a western belt with western booties and all of that together, unless you’re going for that vibe 😉
Besides a typical light or dark denim wash, we think pairing a white denim jacket, skirt, or white jeans is really cute with other denim washes. You can also do the same with black jeans, or or really any colored denim!
This all denim look is from Express. They are our go to for all of our jeans because of how petite we are. Their petite styles and wide range of sizing is why they are our favorite spot! They offer short and longer lengths in their jeans, which is so convenient for shorter girls, like us, and some of you who may be taller.

Coming back from a trip, and because we get asked about this a lot, we wanted to write about drinking and consuming alcohol. We are not alcoholics, or have anything against it, but we both just don’t personally drink alcohol a lot. We do enjoy an occasional glass wine, but are sweets lovers, so we will indulge in that! We talked more about alcohol and drinking in this podcast episode.
To be honest, we were never major drinkers. Of course, in college, we had our fun drinking and going out, but once we graduated, we realized we didn’t really enjoy it as much as we used to. We don’t personally enjoy having a hangover the next day, or not being able to be productive, so we choose to not consume it a lot. There are healthier drink choices you can make, which we can go into in a little bit!
We have found that as we became more into our health, we just committed to a lifestyle of putting the best things we can in our bodies, and we just don’t feel our best drinking often. Of course, like we said, a glass of wine, or a cocktail once in a while is great, but if you don’t feel your best drinking, don’t feel pressured to do it.
There are so many other ways to have fun, without drinking. Of course, if you love drinking and enjoy it, then do what works for you! Nothing wrong with that. We get asked a lot how we handle it when people bring it up, and truth is, if people respect you and have enough security with themselves, they won’t question your choices or decisions. From our experience, it is people who are insecure that have to share their opinions or make you feel like a weirdo for not taking part in what everyone else is doing!
Also, if you surround yourself with more people that have a similar lifestyle to you, it will help a lot!
If you are going to drink, here are some of the drinks we recommend are:
Vodka with sparkling water and citrus like lemon or orange, or even mint and cucumber
Glass of wine
Glass of champagne
Mixed drinks on menu, but skip sugar!
Now, about this denim on denim look! This whole outfit is from Abercrombie, and we are super excited to share these white jeans with you all. They are the white jeans you have been on the hunt for. They are stretchy, have a little rip, and the perfect rise. We got a size 25 in them, and they’re on sale for $44!
This is the perfect kind of outfit to wear for spring travels or a date night! We have been wearing these white jeans from Abercrombie with everything and love how they fit. We love that all of their jeans come in “short” and “tall” lengths, so it is perfect for petites, or taller girls!
We paired it with this white lace cami and a perfect denim jacket. If it is still chilly by you, which it seems to be all over right now, we wanted to share some cozy fleece pieces that are great for spring to throw on with some jeans and leggings!
