    So excited to get my shorts out this year (except for that half of them don't fit :thumbsdowns)!!

    How about you? Do you wear shorts?

    Mine don't fit this year either. Blah! I don't wear them very often anymore anyway, I've been preferring capris the last few years. I hate my thighs!

    Every day! In fact the only reason I wear jeans or capris right now is if I'm at the school volunteering.

    I'm in that in between stage with shorts right now....I don't want my cheeks hanging out and I don't want them covering my knees. At 37, it's hard to find a comfortable medium.

    I don't mind my cheeks out, but I do mind my thighs rubbing together. LOL

    i'm usually in capris or sundresses in the summer - but i also love to wear tennis or running skirts (w/ shorts attached) on days when i want to feel/look "sporty" (usually there are no sports involved LOL)

    I'm not much of a shorts person - my neurotic side is going to show a little here - shorts always seem to look disheveled way too early in the day for me. LOL Like when the bottom edge/cuff starts to turn up or twist after sitting? I always feel like I'm tugging at shorts and smoothing them out. Wouldn't happen with all shorts, like athletic shorts, but I'm not fooling anyone into thinking I'm athletic. I wear a lot of skirts/dresses and sometimes capri pants in the summer - maxi skirts are my best friend. I love maxi skirts!

    I'm not a big fan of shorts. I will try to hold out until it gets really hot! I'd rather wear a skirt or dress.

    I tend to wear capris or sun dresses. I will wear shorts to run, though.

    I mostly wear capri pants, unless I'm just hanging out at home with my girls. I struggle with the length too. Most shorts are just really really short and I'm not comfortable in them. I love the bahama length ones that have been easier to find the last few years.

    I wear capris for the most part. I have some shorts but I feel self conscious in them.

    Here in Texas I live in shorts from April through November. Even capris feel too hot on most days. I found some decent length shorts at Target last year. They had their shorts organized by inseam length and cut (low-rise, mid-rise, etc.) and I was able to find some I loved. They're Mossimo brand, I think.

    We spent ten years living in Malaysia, which is a Muslim country, and I never wore shorts outside of my house unless we were going to the beach. It's taken me a while to get used to wearing them here in Manila, and it's taken me even longer to find shorts that wouldn't make Daisy Duke blush. Who wears these short shorts?
