Me (wearing the shorts shown below): What do you think?
Me: Uhh ... no. They're shorts, see?
Mr.: I don't really get what you'd wear them with.
Me: Um ... maybe a tee. They're just fun shorts for summertime. It's kind of neat because they look a little like a skirt.
Mr.: I think you'd need a jacket or something to make it look right.
Me: Well, I'm not wearing them to work, so I don't think I'd need a jacket.
Mr.: Hmm (clearly perplexed).
The Mr. obviously voted for me to return these, but I figured I needed a second opinion. I've been looking for a fun pair of shorts for summer. I'm looking for something that's figure-flattering and not super-short. I've tried on some of those longer-length Bermuda style shorts, but I think that anything fitted in the hips and thighs emphasizes this area (a part of me that, in my opinion, doesn't need emphasis), so I figured that something flowy might work better.
These shorts fit the bill in that regard. I also like the small-scale print, color, and that it seems easy to pair with other things in my closet. I'm just not sure if this is the best shape for me, particularly with the pleats.
If you feel like it, leave me some honest feedback below and help me decide whether these are keepers. Or, you can just vote no on the basis that I've already broken my shopping ban once, and really should follow through on upholding my ban. :)
