unshort denim shorts.

longer inseam denim shorts

there's something about TOO short shorts that doesn't sit well with me and of course it's all relative based on leg length and what you feel comfortable wearing. short to one may be just right to another, but i've discovered that a two inch inseam wavers in the uneasy zone unless i'm able to scrunch them down on my hips a bit. there's really no reason for my upper upper thighs to be grazing the subway seat.

inseam lengths are noted as uncuffed and can be rolled (or unrolled) to your liking.

1. classic v-neck tee, 2. panama hat, 3. cuffed denim 6 1/2" inseam, 4. aviators, 5. denim cut-offs 2" inseam, 6. cuffed denim 5" inseam, 7. cuffed denim 4" inseam, 8. cuffed denim 5" inseam, 9. slip-on worishofers.

ps: unshort (comfy!) chino shorts.

ha-I just don't wear shorts, period the end. mostly because I strongly dislike my knees.

This outfit is actually my summer uniform (except for the Worishofers, I'm more of a Scholls girl, but you might've converted me !).
I still can't believe I've just now found out about your blog.

Thank you! I am actually looking for longer cut offs because when I DIY my own they turn out a hot mess. Plus I am too old to wear booty shorts.

oh the jcrew ones are perfect. i'm hoping to modify an old pair of jeans into cutoffs this summer but then i have to say goodbye to my favorite jeans.

My long legs are a blessing and a curse. A curse when it comes to finding shorts that aren't showing half my butt. All of these are cute, but sadly waaay out of my budget

Nice! I always wonder if my shorts are age appropriate/work appropriate, so I tend to go longer than shorter. I had great luck last year with Gap's boyfriend chino shorts.

Dreaming about summer during winter time is one of the best things :)!

Short shorts look absolutely vulgar! And you are absolutely right when it comes to the length of the shorts and legs. I wish people would apply this rule and looked in the mirror before going out the door.

I love not-too-short shorts... on other people. I feel way too self conscious to wear anything a few inches above the knee. However these longer ones look doable. I might have to shut my eyes real tight and give in to shorts this summer. *gulp*

A little length makes them look better, in my humble opinion–but to each their own. Love these!

I wish I could wear denim shorts this summer...I think I'll be sticking to muu muus with my whale of a bump though. these are so awesome though.

I love all these shorts. Definitely a must for summer. The hat and glasses go perfectly as well. Great round-up of shorts! Love the blog as well!
