I've always loved wearing shorts, mainly because my legs have always been my favorite body part to expose in the warmer months.  My upper half is larger than my lower half, so I feel most comfortable wearing shorts and 3/4 length sleeves in the summer than I do wearing a tank top and jeans.  I guess that's also why I love wearing dresses in the summertime, too.  With the weather warming up, it's time to get the legs in shape for summer wear and what better motivation than to eye some amazing shorts!? I love how many variations there are for shorts this year, whether it be the classic denim (with a chambray twist), bold, bright patterns and colors or simple, soft neutrals.  Which do you prefer?  I've never ventured too far away from the classic denim, but this year I may have to be adventurous!

Those printed shorts absolutely have me swooning-how gorgeous!

I've steered clear of shorts after a moderately scary incident in Baltimore, but perhaps this is the summer!

I'm loving the second to last collection. I really need to try wearing shorts again.

I'll take one of each. Now if it could just warm up so I can get my tanning cream on and go OUTSIDE...that would be great.

Denim #6 and Neutrals #5 are simply too cute for words. I am a shorts kinds of girl... you have to be growing up in a tropical country.

Amber Blue Bird April 26, 2011 at 11:13 AM

I will take every single one of those patterned beauties! I'm actually not a shorts person, I like skirts & dress, but you have inspired me to 'get over it'!! Fun!

i cant wait until summer to wear shorts! i need some sunshine on my white legs =P

Heidi April 26, 2011 at 7:05 PM  

I always have a hard time wearing shorts because I like my legs up until just past my knees and then I have giant hips and thighs so I always feel uncomfortable in shorty shorts, but long shorts dont' look good on me either. Ah well, these are really cute though :)

katie April 26, 2011 at 7:29 PM  

ohh what a great collection of shorts! i can't wait till the weather warms up a bit more!

Lindsay [rookie's nest] April 26, 2011 at 7:31 PM
