The last time I wore shorts for something other than a workout was back when cargo shorts and flannels were popular. Which is why I found it completely surprising that I not only tried on a pair of shorts recently, I actually liked them!

I found the shorts at Moods of Norway when I was in Bergen, Norway. Moods specializes in what I would call California fashion— bright colors, floor-skimming patterned dresses, and just a lot of fun. I probably chose the least colorful piece in the store, but the cute pleats and cuffs on these shorts speak to the fun attitude of Moods. They also came in bright pink satin, which I was not brave enough to try on.

I even went further out of my character and bought flats recently. I love walking all over the city in the Summer, so I forced myself to look for shoes that would go the distance. I was expecting it to be a chore, but I actually put down a pair of heels to pick up these Dries van Noten sandals! I love the metal detailing and they are really comfortable.

Ah, pockets . . .

Here's to getting out of your comfort zone and getting comfortable!
