coral shorts & sunless tanning

I know shorts are hard to wear this time of year when you're legs have been hidden from the sun for months.  But for some reason coral seems to look less striking against white legs and actually makes them look a little bit less pasty.  That paired with some L'Oreal sunless tanning lotion and I'm set to go.
What's your favorite sunless tanning lotion?  
I'm always on the lookout for a good fake tan!
*oh and for those of you who stopped by early, sorry the links weren't up yet.  I had to make a quick starbucks run but didn't want the whole post to wait*

  1. Love 3, 5 and 6! All super cute though! I use Clarins self tanner. In fact, I just used it this morning!

  4. I just recently got my sister addicted to the loreal sublime Bronze spray! The first kind I've tried this season after much Internet scowering for the best non orange glow ;)

  5. I love them all, it is so hard to decided but I am LOVING scalloped edges this spring/summer so One is perfection.

    I love the L'Oreal tanner, also AMAZING is the Bare Minerals Faux Tan.

  6. I have been wanting those J Crew shorts for weeks! You may have pushed me over the edge to buy them :)

    And any sunless tanning help would be great- I am a pale girl!

  7. These are so pretty. Definitely going to need some this year. I'm not normally a shorts wearer (why do they always ride up in the middle?), but it's going to be a hot summer.

  10. Ever since a disastrous sunless tanning experience in high school that included a white shirt and a rainstorm, I do not dare to try to self-tan. I do like to mystic tan, though! Loving coral that is so in style right now!

  12. I'm with you LOVING #3. I also love the Jergens Glow - it gently builds the tan with each use and I feels more like a moisturizer than a self-tanner.

  13. LOVE 1!!! Oh I've been addicted to L'oreal bronzing GELL forever. Not the lotion, the Gel. But Its intense, so I only use it in the summer (or when heading south to visit friends in TN where they are always tan!). Of course if its for a wedding or something, I always do the spray tan. YAY for spring!!!

  14. I'll go ahead and just take one of each, while we're dreaming. I love the jergens tanning loation, plus now they make one that has SPF 20 in it for everyday coverage!

  15. I am terrified to wear shorts right now. My legs are so scary. I love all these cute options. I love the scallops!

  16. Has anyone ever purchased from Top Shop before?

  17. I have been dying for a pair of scalloped shorts. If only my legs looked good in them...

  18. My fav self tanner is St. Tropaz bronzing mousse with the applicator mitt. I get mine at QVC, goes on so well with the mitt and leaves you looking tan, not orange. A little pricey but a bottle lasts me all season.

  19. Oh my word I am loving 3,5 and 6. Looks like I need to do some shopping today. xo

  20. I'm bad I guess b/c I don't care about not being tan. I just don't have time to deal with it. Love this post though.

  23. oh my goodness!! I JUST wrote a post about that exact sunless tanning lotion (that won't hit til tomorrow)! I loooove it.

  24. Someone mentioned the Sally Hansen's Airbrush Legs and I couldn't agree more!!! Love that stuff. It's great for in between self tan applications or touch ups for those self tanning boo boos!! Love, love, love it!! Probably my new best friend.

  25. Love the jcrew scalloped shorts. I have been eyeing them but I have such a hard time w shorts. I only own Jean shorts right now but I need some new additions! And god bless Starbucks had it the last two mornings after a long draught of making coffee at home so not as good!

  26. I love all of those shorts!! I worse a pair for the first time last weekend and it was scary- I saw my legs in the mirror and had to go home and change into capris- it was BAD!!! I'm going to have to try out the L'oreal Sublime and see if it doesn't turn me orange cause I need something to help me out!

  27. I love the Jergens tanning lotion - it leaves a little bit of metallic on your skin, but it does smell a little awkward. Dove makes one that smells amazing though and it works super fast...it's a toss up!!

  28. I swear by that L'Oreal stuff! Immediate results :)
