At Last

Finding the perfect Shorts

I do not wear shorts. You may have heard me say this before. I just have never liked the way I look in them. As a kid, I hated my knees, and I have always been so pale (although, I am starting to embrace the pale). I wear workout shorts of course when I am running or exercising. But if you ask my trainer, you will find I wear shorts way less than I do a yoga/legging pant.

In Summer, I lean towards skirts, dresses and even pants over shorts. I see them on other people and love them. They are so cute, just not on me. Until now. At Last, I have found a pair of shorts I love. I even stumbled on them accidentally. Which if you read my old blog post on , you will remember I said that sometimes you find the best things when you not even looking!

I went in Rugby today in New Canaan – I love the Shops in our Village – looking to duplicate a pair of pants I got there and instead found these shorts. They actually fit me. They sit at the perfect spot on my hips. They have great pockets on the front and rear. They are not too short and not too long. The weight of them is great and so were the colors. When I was copying the link to the online site for them, I found out they even come in a third color! I will now have to get those too.

I now wear shorts. At least these shorts. I am ready for Summer.

Be thankful you have knees. Some folks don't. You're a little self absorbed, right?

Rugby. I will Google and see where it is. It might be what I need. Why? My dear sweet Mother (ugh!!) is forcing me today to take her pant shopping. Believe it or not She wears Men pants. It is Summer and maybye shorts are in order. She wants the pull up kind whatever that means. Why can't someone else take her or do it??Why do I have to wasted my time when I could be napping in the park or something more constructive. Unfair !! My Mom is a cow and big as a house. It will not be an easy task. enjoy your weekend folks. At least you are free unlike me. Stinks

Nice comment about your mom. If I was her, I'd sit on you until you apologized.

Glen, for all of us who visit this site please seek professional help. I think you are seriously in need of it. I am actually frightened to know that you wander this town. Drop everything you are doing right now, get a cab and head straight to silver hill.

With all due respect and politely speaking....I do see Psychologist in NY and also see a Psychiatrist in Norwalk and take medcine. What I do NOT need is someone to tell me how to deal. What I need is someone to solve my problems. Actually all I really am in desperate need is: FREEDOM LOVE YOUTH ARBITRATION as for the pants... I got a stay of execution..for now. I took her to her dumb Saturday Dr appt (Saturday ??) Then, we sent to Kohls (KSS) But, she felt tired and weak and wanted to go home lucky for me. Then, my took over

Glen - "FREEDOM LOVE YOUTH ARBITRATION" is important to you, but pants should be equally important. We all need pants or it would be very cold in the winter. So help your mom get her pants...PLEASE, or we will all need to see a psychiatrist !!

What a terrific idea, Kristin! Just in time for the summer heat. This is a new and fashionable take on shorts and the sea-blue color is so fresh-looking! You don't have to leave town to buy stylish clothing!
