Roundup: She doesn't want to wear short shorts

To begin with, holy moly, I can't believe I hit (and surpassed) 400 followers. You all are the best and you make my heart so happy.

This week I was struggling to decide on a roundup subject when I decided to send out a call for suggestions on Facebook (did you know Adventures in Love & Happiness is on Facebook?)

Luckily for me (and for you) the darling Dana of Exploring the Unknown suggested summer shorts that we long enough for a lady to wear. Truthfully, shorts aren't my favorite. I consider it a triumph that I have 3 pairs in my closet and don't imagine I'll be getting many more.

Except I do love pairing them with tights so maybe I'll have to pick up a pair.

Do you love ikat as much as I do?

I've always had a soft spot for sailor shorts.

When picking shorts I usually try to pick fun colors & patterns.
Geometric Shorts from Gap $39.95

I'm not sure if I've ever seen girlier shorts than these.

The color of these shorts would make them a summer staple.

I imagine these shorts would be nice & comfy.

Love the pattern & the style.

Oh my goodness could these polka dots be any cuter? 

I love the classic simplicity of these shorts.

These shorts can come live in my closet.

The detail of these pockets is too cute.

These are cute enough to add to my closet.

My legs are too short for longer shorts but these might have to be the exception.

The perfect shorts to dress up or down.

I adore this neutral print.

Whimsical shorts are perfect for summer.

Pink ikat + a bow=perfectly girly shorts.

I've been loving floral dresses so floral shorts are right up my alley.

I usually try to steer clear of denim shorts but these are too cute to pass up.

If you ever get stumped while looking for something send me an email, tweet, comment or message with the item and I'll put together a roundup for you!

I own two pairs of shorts & can't remember the last time I wore either of them....!

I'm not a huge fan of shorts either - I enjoy the bermuda length because I feel like it doesn't make my thighs look huge.

I really like the last ones from gap!

Yay! Thanks so much! I love all the loose flowy styles because you can definitely transition those into the fall with tights. You picked some great patterns too! Can't wait to do a little internet shopping this weekend :-) then my students wont be able to call me out on wearing the same shorts everyday haha

I also own two pair of shorts both from Jcrew. both khaki (one dark beige one navy blue) I hardly ever wear them.

i've always said that i hate shorts. and then i'll go out and by 3 pairs every summer. i've come to terms with my thighs & it just gets too hot here to not wear them. i love the ruffle shorts and the silk shorts trend. :) thanks for your sweet comment!

i'm the same way about shorts! i've been trying to wear them more lately but for some reason, i can't get over feeling self conscious.

Oh, My Darling said...

Wow, what a stellar collection of shorts!

I LOVE shorts! Love love love! It might also have something to do with living on a tropical island...What a great assortment you have here. Thanks for stopping by my blog today Cole :)

These are such cute shorts! But I definitely tend to like a longer length...not a big fan of my thighs. ;)

I heart the J Crew ones and the Megan Nielson ones loaaaads!! I love shorts, don't have many pairs though, it's rarely warm enough to wear them over here, I wear them to death on hot holidays though!

I am not a shorts girl either. Why wear shorts when you can wear skirts? ;) I also am a bit "hippy" so I feel like I look ridiculous in them. That said, those modcloth ones with the bow might just change my mind. They're ridiculously adorable!

I need more shorts, but they're already out of stores!! WHAT!? I need another pair of jean shorts, but I would also like to get a patterned pair. Guess I need to expand my store search if I really want to find a pair. I mean, common, it's only June!
