AJ Wears :: Lace Extenders

Remember that time I forgot to blog for a month? Me either. Truth is, sometimes you've got to take a break and you can come back fresh and better than ever.

I promise to eventually add some posts about France, because it was awesome. But first!

Boot Cuffs & Socks featured me on a blog post of theirs recently (see it here, SO nice!), and reached out to see if I'd be interested in reviewing their products. Since it's still in the 80's here in Arkansas (omg so fall), it's a *little* early for boot cuffs, but I loved the idea of their Shorts Extenders and took them for a spin.

Basically, they're little cotton shorts with lace on the ends to wear underneath your shorty-shorts for a new look and a little extra length. And let me tell you - these things are HANDY. Not only are they super comfy to wear, they take care of one really big problem I always seem to be complaining about - thigh rubbing!

I actually threw these in my bag for France and wore them under skirts, too, which was an awesome little solution to the dreaded chubrub, and really handy for modesty purposes like riding a bike or sitting on steps somewhere. Not into black? They're available in white as well! I snagged this photo from their website so you could see how cute they look peeking out from cutoffs.

And, full disclosure, I've been wearing my white ones as sleep shorts. They're like super cute little bloomers that I throw on under a long tank. Like I said - versatile! The actual shorts are a soft jersey material, so they're very comfy for long wear.

Big thanks to Jamie and Boot Cuffs & Socks for sending the samples for me to try, and check out their website for some super cute "Faking Fall" boot cuffs. If you're gonna wear boots in the south right now, using a cuff instead of a full sock is a really cute way to change up your look.

PS - As far as sizing goes, the chart is pretty spot on. I measured my thighs as the most important part, since the lace doesn't have as much give, and the XL is a perfect fit. Thighs for days, y'all.
