The Shorts Situation

Oh shorts. They're a tricky business, right? It's a perfect storm of attention on all of one's problem areas. There's the length issue which is of the utmost importance, a hair or two off in either direction and the whole thing is a disaster. I have always hated (HATED) how I looked in shorts. It's just too much stuff on blast. I don't mind showing leg but it's so much easier and simpler with a dress. Shorts are complicated. But I recently procured a bike, so I need some shorts for riding. And shorts that I don't absolutely loathe are tough to find. And I'll probably never love how I look in shorts, but they're necessary. (Says the lady who is living through our first heat wave of the summer). I've found the best recipe for shorts success is to cut off an old pair of jeans. But this isn't always feasible as who has a bunch of old jeans lying around just waiting to be reborn as cutoffs? So I did some searching and I am happy to announce I found two (two!) pairs of shorts that I don't hate. This is fantastic news. And almost makes trying on all those horrible, ill-fitting ones worth it. Almost. But, let my pain work in your favor. So, enough blabbing. Here's the pretty okay I-don't-totally-hate-them winners. I happened to find a long and a short version thus ensuing I'll be covered for any and every short-wearing occasion.

Alright, your turn. What's your stance on shorts?
