Shorts: Love or Hate?

I can't decide if I love wearing shorts or if I hate wearing shorts. 
Or maybe just short, shorts?

This post and in the previous I'm sporting shorts-they seem like such a likely choice in the summer time. For  style this season there are so many choices: madras, classic twill Bermuda's, patterned shorts, leather shorts, scalloped shorts and even jorts!

However, I think I would rather just wear a skirt. And I think that decision comes from how I feel about my self in shorts. 

I'm a little critical and self conscious. My legs are too pale, uneven tone, bumped, scratched, bruised...the list goes on and on. 

But, I don't think I'll stop wearing them maybe, just not post them here!

My daughter took this picture and said "I'll tip it so I can get the pretty yellow flowers in" so I just had to include it!

Shorts: J.Crew classic 3" twill-thrifted
Shirt: Talbots Irish linen-thrifted
Scarf: J.Crew-thrifted
Sandals: Payless
Watch: Citizen's

  1. I love the shorts and your scarf has such a pretty print! Love this outfit :)

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and giving me a little more confidence to wear shorts!

  3. I think you look great, and you are a rare breed who can rock bermudas too without looking stumpy (like myself!)

  4. I'm stopping by from Monday Mingle--sorry it took me so long. I'm more of a fan on the skirts...but am warming up to shorts. Need the right shoes so it looks polished. You look adorable.
