SUPER COMFY Paperbag Shorts!

Not to start off this post by yelling, but THESE SHORTS ARE SO GOOD!  What’s so amazing about them?  The comfort level is LEGIT!  The paperbag waist is VERY trendy right now and, though I like the style, it’s been a challenge finding options that are flattering AND comfortable!

I shared a pair of paperbag pants in the fall, but, since then, I haven’t found any others that I’m really crazy about until I found this pair of shorts from Nordstrom!  To be honest, I wasn’t really expecting to like them, but Nordstrom has free returns and they are very affordable so I decided to add them to my cart.  So happy I did!  After wearing them them twice, I got on and also ordered the navy color.

These paperbag shorts are $39 + FREE shipping and they’re available in regular and plus sizes!  This brand runs a little on the larger side so if you happen to be between sizes, go up rather than down in these.  They literally feel like pajama shorts….but with a trendy paperbag waist and pockets!  Because of that, if you’ve considered trying this trend, I definitely recommend giving this pair a chance.  Worse case, you can easily return them…for free (a big perk of shopping at Nordstrom…as well as buy online and pick up in store, on-site tailoring, E-Gifting, free shipping, reserve online and try on in store, and stylist services for special events or everyday looks).

Shorts are available HERE.

I also saw that my camo pants (also from Nordstrom) are on sale for under $25! Sizes are going very fast, but this same brand has other camo styles HERE and HERE.  This pair of camo shorts also look really comfy!

Also, I should mention, these wedges are easily some of my most worn summer shoes (I’ve had them for a long time) and they still look brand new!  I have them in the tan leather and in the white and I love them both!  Very comfortable and have AMAZING reviews!  True to size and available HERE.

P.S. While we’re talking about Nordstrom stuff.  I noticed this morning that they have an entire section on their site dedicated to Mother’s Day gift ideas!  It’s 4 full pages of gift options, in several different categories and price points!  See the options HERE.
