I haven't worn shorts without tights in a long time, but finally my legs can be bare!! That and they've been pretty white, so I didn't feel like blinding anyone. I started to feel a little self conscience about wearing shorts due to the fact that they are, well... short. I was feeling like that area of me was starting to thicken up a bit, and let's be honest, I'm not getting any younger, so showing some bum is not an option (anymore...yes, I used to loove short shorts!) Because I'm so tall I've always considered my legs to be one of my best and favourite assets, so this really had me torn. Until I found these. These shorts are a great compromise, they have a little bit of a longer inseam called a midi length (4"), but not boyfriend or bermuda length, the opening is wide enough that it doesn't cut of any circulation, and the slant pockets help them feel a little more sophisticated. All in all, a great short! I liked them so much, I bought 3 pairs..... Thanks you outlet mall near Portland!
