Vintage Retro Shorts- Review & Giveaway


As a mom, I think that sometimes we forget that we are still our own "people." We get so wrapped up in daiper changes, park outings, meals, snacks, nap time, and time-outs, we forget to take care of ourselves. We might not even get a chance to glance in the mirror some days!

I have made it a personal goal to find one thing every day that makes me feel like "me", not just "mommy." Whether it be to take 15 minutes to read a book, put on makeup, excercise, or put on something cute, it is solely for me and it is important to me.


When I came across the Vintage Retro Shorts website, I was so excited to contact them about reviewing their cute shorts! Vintage Retro Shorts sells 100% cotton retro shorts in awesome color combinations. I was able to review the black with white trim retro shorts. They are SO comfortable, and they also make you feel cute, even when you might not look it! I wore them last weekend at a birthday party, we rode this awesome surf machine and I got so many compliments on them! They are perfect for running, walking, or just slipping on to lounge around the house in!



If you are planning on buying a pair of these, the only recommendation that I would have for you is to order a size larger than you normally wear. I normally wear a medium bottom, and they are borderline small for me. A size larger would be just a bit roomier for this mommas bum!


Buy It: Head on over to the Vintage Retro Shorts Website and check out all of the MANY awesome color combinations! They are getting ready to release some new colors soon as well, so keep checking back. Shorts retail $14 and ship worldwide.


Win it! One n.c. baby blog reader is going to win a pair of vintage retro shorts in the size and color of their choice!
