Short and Sweet

As much as I love summer skirts and plan on wearing them often this summer, I think that as a mom of an extremely quick one year old, shorts will be a safer (read: more modest) option much of the time. So I’m currently on the hunt for some cute summer shorts. The challenge is finding ones that are long enough. Most that I’ve seen cover about three inches of skin total…

I’ve found several darling ones, in varying price ranges, but am still searching for that perfect pair. I think it might be time to go try some on. Any great ideas?

    I really struggle to find shorts long enough. I hate wearing shorts but it's a necessity in Vegas, as you know! I did find some denim bermudas as Old Navy this year that are the perfect length and pretty comfy.

    Lovin' the new look! I hate finding long shorts, it seems so hit-and-miss. I always end up finding something at Target though.

    I was just at Target last week and they have some REALLY cute bermudas that were the perfect length. They have them in denim and this adorable subtle pin stripe. You would look darling in them. Love Love!

    How about thrift store pants? Cut them off and hem them to suit you.

    Long enough is a constant problem. Eddie Bauer makes some great ones though, just the right length. Only problem is, I like Old Navy prices better 🙂

  6. I think the long shorts look is best pulled off when the shorts are a different color!

    It is hard to find them long enough though!

    I like Old Navy for shorts because they make lengths ranging from really short to capris.
