If you still have the good gams look no further than this great post by Norcalstyle on all the most glorious less-than-knee-length shorts.
But if like me, you're at the stage of curtesying rather than bowing (as Susie would say), you'll be opting for the Bermuda. Frustrating at the moment - there are no zazzy pairs this season, everyone has obviously opted for the shorties. The other day I asked my friend Kathleen in desperation:"Seen any decent 10-12 inch pairs?" No, not a reference to some weird 50 Shades practise... rather how long is a Bermuda.
First stop of course was Banana Republic which had best quality Bermudas all around in terms of thickness of material, shape and fit. Still they only had a selection of four colours, white, two kinds of beige and navy blue. At J. Crew I found four colours, the shorts were not as good a fit (too big in the waist) and the quality of material was lesser, but the colours included a lovely periwinkle blue. No prints as far as the eye could see there or anywhere else on the internet.
But once I tried on the possibilities I realised the plain old colours are really all you need.
|I think the white BR's are nice enough to wear with heels don't you? (sorry overdid the fake tan)|
|The periwinkle J. Crews are my fave for casual.|
|Khaki J. Crews with white jacket and heels|
|Cream BR's with flatties|
Today we're off to Big Sky to do some fishin' and hikin' and white water raftin' and stuff that you can drop all the "g's" on - looking forward to seeing you in ten days time!
