Is it me or are shorts nowadays REALLY short?? I'm sorry, but I don't want half of my butt cheek hanging out. It's very uncomfortable and not attractive. Just saying. BUT Summer is upon us, and we all need a few good pairs of shorts that we can throw on when we don't want to wear a skirt or a sundress. One trick I discovered recently is "un-cuffing" my jean shorts. It gives me extra length that I need and want (now that I am 44)! I was determined to find more short options, and while shopping at Abercrombie & Fitch for my 14 year old, I found the most amazing pair of shorts. I kid you not! I do recommend going up a size - their clothing seems to be made for very skinny people! They are the perfect length and only $54!
Since these shorts were on the "longer" side and had a cute belt, I decided to dress them up! This lady-like top is from Anthropologie. I love the lace detail around the neck. Accessories: Veronica Beard heels (on repeat - they go with everything!) and a colorful striped straw clutch! I am happy to report that there are short options out there for us ladies who like to keep our butts covered!
