10 Things Tuesday: Shorts for Summer

Shorts can be one of those articles of clothing that are difficult to find. But when I find a pair that fits well, I love them and wear them for years. My favorite basic pairs of white and black shorts are from Gap that I got at least 4 years ago. Luckily, I purchased 2 pairs of each color when I found them, and they are closet staples that I wear over and over again all summer long.

There are 2 main things I think about when I'm shopping for shorts- length and tightness. I'm not all that young anymore, so I can't/ don't want to wear shorts that are too short. But I also don't want my shorts to be too long because those are never flattering. I have learned that shorts with 3.5 & 4 inch inseams are my favorite. So many girls love denim shorts, and they rock them. I have not found a pair of denim shorts that I love because I don't like shorts that are super tight on my thighs. All this to say, I am clearly picky about the shorts I purchase. :)

Today, I am sharing 10 pairs of shorts that I own or would feel comfortable owning. They all meet my requirements- they're not too short or too long, and they aren't super tight in the thigh area. I am also sharing pictures of me in several pairs of the shorts after I share which pairs made this week's top 10!
