So I have these shorts and they are my favorites. Really. I like them even more than my denim cut offs and I love those. Here’s the thing – they are old. And on top of that they were thrifted. So they were old when I bought them! They caught my eye at Style Encore – I was selling my stuff and the print on these spoke to me. As well as the color. I love a good green!
I consider myself fairly knowledgeable when it comes to how old a pattern or style is when a piece comes from a retailer I frequent. I cannot even begin to place these so they must be ancient. But I love them. They are longer yet fitted through the leg. They have covered buttons. I love the geometric print. The cotton is heavy duty and sturdy. See what I mean? It’s love.
Here’s the thing. Back in May I pulled them out to wear and them and could not pull them up. Seriously. Since I love them I knew there was no way I was getting rid of them – I had to get rid of the extra weight. I did – I’ll share that another time, and I am happy to say they fit once again. We’ve been reunited and it feels so good (who remembers that song?).
Wearing them with a cute bodysuit cut down on extra bulk through the middle – have you jumped on the bodysuit train yet? Super easy outfit and so comfortable too! Do you have a favorite pair of shorts you just can’t bear to part with? Do tell!
Since my shorts are old, I’ve located a few options for you. They are all longer, bermuda length and on sale!

My favorite post from last week’s link up: this one from Chez Mireille . Sweet Mireille looks smashing in her camo and orange. Read her post to see who inspired her!
