Who Wears Short Shorts?

With summer approaching, I'm starting to look through my summer wardrobe and see what's missing. Even though I am a Fall/Winter girl, summer does have a special place in my heart. I love flip flops and sandals, love the bright colors (sometimes) and the ability to throw a dress on, not putting any thought into the outfit. 

One thing I do not like, never have, but want to desperately is shorts. I've never been a fan of shorts and every summer, I try to force myself to wear them but I'm just never comfortable. I would much rather wear leggings or a dress; no matter how hot it gets, I never throw shorts on.

I'd like to change that though; I always see girls wearing shorts and making such a cute outfit out of it but I never seem to get myself there. I daydream about shorts, look at them online, try them on in the store but it never works out.

This summer, I'm trying to slowly work shorts into my wardrobe. Here are some of my favorites that I've found.






I've heard amazing things about the J.Crew chino shorts and everyone seems to wear them! They look comfortable and easy to style; plain, printed shorts can be dressed up or down. I see a pair of these in my future.


I'm not really a fan of the GAP but they always seem to have great stuff online! I like how simple these shorts are, they're similar to the J.Crew ones for a cheaper price! They can be styled with anything and I'm loving the bright pink color!


The one pair of shorts I do own are from American Eagle. These adorable mid denim shorts are really similar to the ones I have. These will probably be the first pair I purchase! 



How do I not include Lilly in this mix? I would love a printed pair of these lovelies but I don't know if I could pull it off; the plain colored ones would do me just fine then!

What are your favorite shorts?
How do you style them?
