Shorts: love ’em or hate ’em, I’m pretty sure we can all agree on something: 96% of them are unreasonably short. I work in a retail store, and every spring I feel like the shorts in the junior’s department get even shorter. Yes, the name of the garment says it all, but is the 1/2 inch inseam really necessary?
I was already beginning to get turned off by the idea of shorts, but spending a summer in London sealed the deal for me. I would much rather wear a dress or a skirt during the warmer months! However, I knew that it was a stretch for me to banish shorts from my wardrobe forever, so I began the hunt for some more modest ones. I don’t love the look of bermudas, but I wanted a pair that covered everything that needed covered.
Enter these shorts from Target: Black (like everything else I own), high-waisted (very important), and classified as “midi”. Literally the perfect pair for me! And because it’s not quite summer yet, I decided to pair it with a long-sleeve button up. I believe this is a grown-up yet stylish way to style a traditionally young garment, and I am all for it!
