Wednesday Confessional

I do not own a single, solitary pair of shorts.

I am normally a dress or skirt kind of girl. The only time this varies is for work, when in the winter it's wool pants and in the summer it's linen pants. I just think dresses are so much easier and they look so chic with so little effort.

However, with this recent bout of gorg weather, I have seen lots of gals looking oh so cute and comfy {and dare i say glamourous} in shorts. I don't really consider myself a casual person {unless you catch me at home about 10 minutes after work. then i'm in sweats and a big ole butterfly clip circa 95}. I'm pretty much always in a dress and heels.

But I'm so intrigued by how great everyone looks in their shorts that I'm revisiting the idea of them. I want to buy a few pairs, but don't even know where to start. That's where you come in: any particular brands, styles, materials, colors, etc. that you heart? Help a girl out!

J. Crew has the nice basic chino - with and without embroidered critters, etc. They have also have madras, linen, etc. The nice thing about their shorts is the price ;-) and the variety found in the length! And you can dress them up or down. I bet you will love them once you start wearing them!! And, of course, Lilly P!!

i cant wait to hear the responses! i'm not a shorts wearer either ( i have a hard time being tall with long legs that shorts look unintentially "short shorts")

Ohhh I hear you!

I own three pairs of shorts: 2 Lilly and 1 Old Navy.

I am quite particular about shorts, but I have found that the pairs I own are quite perfect for more active summer activities like walking around the Island or running errands in style.

I don't wear them often, but I would say I pull out shorts about 10 times betwen April and September.

[PS: Just found your blog, and I am LOVING it.]

I am also a skirt and dress girl. I have to agree with preppy 101...the only shorts that seem to fit me right (and not get too tight in all the wrong places) are jcrew. The madras ones are super comfy...and their shorts last forever :0)
