A Short(s) Story.

July 18, 2014

If you can’t beat em, join em. Right? My children refuse to wear shorts with buttons. No, my kids will never dress like this:crewcuts

Unless I pay them in ice cream. Its. never. gonna. happen. So I decided to see what all the fuss was about. Why wear shorts with buttons when you can wear shorts without them?………….. You guys. My kids were right. I’m not sure I can ever go back. It’s like wearing air! And while the ones they make for my boys are, well, just gym shorts, they actually make cute pull-on shorts for women and you feel like you are wearing gym shorts but you’re really not and it’s….. liberating. Because, really, are there any women out there who really like wearing shorts? Don’t get me wrong. I love summer, but I also really, really, really love wearing long jeans. No rubbing, no riding, no varicose veins bulging…. but veins aside, pull-on shorts are game changers. Here is a round up of my favorite pull-ons at all price points and for all occasions. And yes, I bought this one and this one and highly recommend!

Okay. So I am totally kidding about those last ones. You know, unless you are going for the crocheted- diapered look…. if so, by all means go for it!

But not kidding, when these Lily Pulitzer shorts come back in stock, I just might have to have them.

What do we think? Ready to give shorts a second chance?
