Thrifting Thursday: Breezy Patterned Shorts

I've pretty much worn the same style of shorts since I was 18. I've always been a little self-conscious about my legs, so I usually go for a longer, sporty-style short (picture something Ellie in Jurassic Park would wear on a dig).  Now, I still love that style (who doesn't want to look like Tomb Raider?) & that's pretty great for everyday wear, but I have found myself wanting an option that I can dress up or dress down, depending on the occasion. For those evenings when I don't want to wear a dress or a skirt. I recently bought this pair of shorts in black & in pink from the clearance section of Old Navy & I'm in love! They were marked down to $8.99 & then came down to $6.50 at the register. Bargain! I'm a big fan of clothing that makes you look like you're dressed up & put together, but feels like pajama bottoms and boy, do these fit the bill! They have an elastic waist, so go ahead & have dessert, & have pockets & decorative stitching on the front.

Also, these beauties are longer in the back, so no chance of your butt cheeks making an appearance. Why are shorts today so short? My legs aren't particularly long and some shorts seem inordinately short on me, I just can't imagine them on a taller girl!  I'm glad that these are breezy & flattering, while still covering all the bits that I want to keep covered.

Old Navy has a ton of great stuff on super-clearance, including workout gear, shoes & maternity, so you might want to run down to your local shop or check them out online.


Here are a few other options that will keep you cool while looking cool this summer. I especially love the styles with lace, fringe & baubles on the edges. I've also included a great pair of wedges, a sugar scrub (to keep the legs looking & feeling smooth) & some of my favorite lotion & spray moisturizer (which keeps your skin soft with a light, cooling mist. Perfect for the summer months!)
