Who Wears Short Shorts?

I will be the first to admit that I love short shorts.  Shorts are my summer staple especially now that I have to chase around 2 little boys.  For me, the shorter the better.  That's only because I am only 5'4''.  I'm not a fan of long shorts due to my height.  I tell myself I don't need anymore shorts, but what do I buy?  Yes, more shorts!  I justify it because I wear them just about every day in the summer.
Here are some great pairs that I have found. 

I will start with some personal purchases...

Obsessed with my new J.Crew shorts!  
I'm so excited about finding these in one of my favorite colors.

Love the color! 
As y'all can tell, I have a slight obsession with mint and turq. 
I had to include the model pics because they look so much better.
Plus, it shows different ways to wear them. 
These are a more casual short and can easily be thrown on
with a tank, cami, or tee with some cute flat sandals or flip flops.
Of course you could also do a wedge if you want a little more dressed up look.

Here are some other shorts that are on my "wish list".

I love this print!  I clearly love every short on this page, but you get the idea.  Isn't this a great print and color?  Perfect!  Wear a white top or for something different do a mint top for some extra color.  These are great because you can easily dress them up or down. 

Hello flowers!  Floral prints are huge this season. 
 Floral shorts are a great way to jump on this trend
without having to scream floral with your outfit.

I have to admit that I love the high-waist trend! 
The trick to these is to make sure you pick a high waist that is flattering for your body type.  I have the image in my mind of poor Jessica Simpson wearing her so-called "Mom Jeans".  That is an example of how NOT to wear a high waist.  Having said that, I'm obsessed with these shorts!  I think I need to add them to my collection.  
I mean, I don't have a red pair. ;)

Y'all know I love Judith March's dresses.  Her shorts are no different. 
Aren't the colors great?
  I would dress these up with some fabulous heels or wedges,
add a big chunky necklace and/or some bright bracelets.  So hot!

How summery are these?  Easy breezy is what pops into mind.
I don't know which color I like better. 
 I am in love with the stripes. 
These are fabulous not only because of the great color and print, but they are $17.99?!
Are you kidding?  Thank you JCP!
Go buy now!

A great pair of denim shorts is a staple. 
I have been a fan of BlankNYC for years now.
They offer designer quality denim at a price point of around $88.
I have several pairs of Blank jeans and love every pair!

Anthropologie has finally opened up in downtown Greenville.  Of course I am ecstatic! Greenville continues to grow.  Now if we could get a Lululemon store (we already have a showroom) and Nordstrom, I would be set.  I found these online, but needless to say, I will be taking a trip downtown to try them on.  You can't go wrong with black and white.  I love a good ikat print too.  Notice the waistline on these.

How cute are these?  Don't these look like the most comfortable shorts ever?  I like that they have a drawstring and pockets.  They are right on trend with a beautiful floral print.  You really could pair these with any color top. So versatile!
