Shorts for ThirtySomethings

Shorts.  I will be honest.   We have a love/hate relationship.  I am not confident in shorts.  I have thicker thighs and feel like they aren’t super flattering on me and highlight the heaviest part of my legs.  So, when I find a pair that I feel are flattering AND comfortable, I am sure to dedicate a blogpost to it. Usually a fan of bermudas, these are shorter, but the fit is really easy.  I can teeter between a 4/6 at Old Navy…and these are a 6.  I like that I can wear them a little lower on the hip.  Loving the simple, easy style of this particular outfit.  White tank, white button down, great accessories adding in a POP of color….kind of my uniform lately.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration:)  Happy Shopping!

  1. Oh my gosh, you are so right!! I also have a love / hate relationship with shorts and my thighs. It is a challenge every summer. I also have these same shorts from Old Navy and love them (for shorts.) Have you tried the satin / silk flowy shorts that are in. Certain cuts are flattering on my thunder thighs:)
