i only like shorts if there aren't any pleats. also, i think they can look great with heels.

Rebee said...

I agree with the no pleats in the shorts. I always wear them with heels.

i like high waisted shorts and crisp shorts. i don't like the baggy ones. I usually don't wear them out at night, but I have occassionally.

my legs are not even that big but i always feel awkward to be showing so much skin. someone else could be wearing shorts and look fine, but i can't do it myself...sigh...
the shortest i'll go is to above the knee length.

I can't said that I love to wear shorts. Although my legs are not fat I always feel uneasy with shorts.
My favorite are Retro Chambray Bermuda shorts and the Diesel Sesenta shorts.

Those flowy shorts are kind of different. Really cute... may have to try those bad boys out.

Not really a shorts kind of girl though, I do skirts and capris mostly.

Glo said...

Oh and hope you're feeling better...

I have shorts, but they're like one or two summers old and they're not looking right to me right now. I like the parachute shorts look. I might wear that this summer... if it ever gets warm in the Chi.

@Glo - Thanks so much for asking. Yes, I'm finally feeling better. :-)

I really haven't been feeling well lately.

@bgg: I'm glad you're feeling better.

Yes, I love wearing shorts. I don't wear them as short as I used to but I still like shorts. I agree with the other commenters, shorts look great paired with heels and would work for a night out.

I was just looking at my thighs the other day thinking....what the hell happened! Seriously, the look like there was an explosion under my skin and what used to be smooth and nice is now all bumpy and not nice. Needless to say, I'm in love with capris. Awww to be young again!

I'm short shy. No short shorts for me. So sad.

Calming Corners said...

I love short shorts but my thighs don't. I agree with no pleats.

Miss Mika said...

I say... $200 for a pair of shorts???? I am with kitty vodka! That is insane! Those Ralph Lauren and Wet Seal shorts are super cute and reasonably priced.

Welcome back BGG!!

i'm shy of wearing shorts cause i don't really have the most beautiful legs, but when it's really hot outside, it kinda doesn't matter:))
