It’s the end of February and I’m in shorts. Hellloooo Texas! I know there are quite a few of you that don’t quite have this…errrr…luxury, but I’m rounding up some of my favorite shorts that I’ve scored in preparation for the very sweaty summer that I have ahead of me.
Let me just start off with my age. I think this plays a huge role in what type of shorts you are looking for/comfortable with. I’m 24 with two kids. It’s a weird phase where I don’t feel like “mom” shorts are flattering on me, but also I’m not really down with showing cheeks. Right? I own these and I am comfortable in them and running after kids… while still feeling like I have some sense of style.
If you have hot summers (or springs, like us) I urge you to try these out!!

Boyfriend Shorts 3″
So these were a total dud when I ordered them online. I am hovering between a 2 and 4 right now and for the sake of modesty I went with a 4. Mmm, to my surprise, they were huge. Baggy/Long not at all flattering on me! I went into the store to return them and tried the 2. JACKPOT. The key to the Old Navy Boyfriend Shorts is S I Z E D O W N. The 2’s are comfortable, not too short and just snug enough to not give me saggy butt. Yeaaa, that’s a thing. The KUT shorts I show are the ones that I got in my Trunk Club earlier this month. They are SO soft and I love them even more after the first wash. They hold up so well. I have a size 4/27, they run a hair big, I think I could do a 26 if I wanted them more snug/short.
I grabbed some of these last year and they are SO perfect when the temps start creeping up! They are so lightweight and easy to dress up. Also, double as a swim cover! I’m thinking they are a 3-4″ inseam, I am totally comfortable in these, plus they are kind of trendy (but always on trend) and make me feel stylish. That’s important, haha.
Short Shorts 2″
I tried these on in the store but couldn’t really justify $50 for some ripped up short shorts, so I’ve been watching their site and snagged these for $30 each. The inseam is short, fair warning. BUT, I don’t feel like a teenager in them. I wear a size 4 in these. I could totally see if you size up they won’t be so snug which could make up for the length. I might not have a lot of time wearing these and may have to switch to their midi shorts, which I also tried on and was pretty impressed with (they are similar to the Old Navy shorts in terms on length). Also, the high waist is every mother’s friend. YOU.ARE.WELCOME.
So, I know, not a lot to choose from, but these are my ABSOLUTE favorite. If I come across any others I’ll be sure to update you! If you have a favorite brand, be sure to comment and let me know so I can check them out!
