Who Wears Short Shorts?

Not me!  One question I’m often asked is, “why don’t you wear more pants?”  My simple answer is that I’m most comfortable in dresses and skirts.  My fondness for dresses and skirts, however,  grew when I realized these items were most flattering on my body type.

According to Lucky magazine, I have a dewdrop figure, that is, curvy butt and thighs.  When I get ready, I spend most of my time thinking about dressing and fitting my bottom half.

Anyway, I found these shorts that I didn’t realize I still owned.  The shorts “fit,” but they don’t suit me.  I decided to style and photograph a look with the shorts to demonstrate.

Who Wears Short Shorts

Short pants may be an extreme example to demonstrate why I don’t wear pants often, but I even prefer mini skirts to shorts.

There are, of course, types of pants that are better suited for folks with curvy butts and thighs.  For me, it’s always easier to wear a skirt or dress with the right silhouette for my body.

Have a wonderful weekend!

    Well I still think you look darling in those shorts, but I understand having a preference for skirts over shorts or pants as well. In other news, that blazer is gorgeous! You are beautiful!

    I have the same exact body type as that, butt and thighs, hence why I never wear shorts either. I live in dresses and skirts so I completely understand.

    Those shorts look fantastic on you! I'm in love with the whole look. Pastel blazer and shoes with stripes…yes please 🙂

    I totally agree with on dressing your body type and I'm not a huge fan of pants eithe, I guess is due to my bowlegs…lol

    Shorts do nothing for me either. When it's wearm I'd weather put on a dress or skirt.

    I like the skirt look better, although you have amazing legs and those shorts really show them off! 🙂 Maybe a plain non patterned pair?

    I know you disagree, but I think you look great in those shorts. I hope this isn't out of line, but your legs look great in them. And while I prefer skirts and dresses too, sometimes you need to break out a pair of shorts!
