Shorts Shopping

Ahh, the dreaded shorts season. Finding shorts is a bother for me, because not only am I a "pear" shape (bottom heavy,) but I'm also tall. So finding shorts that are long enough and that don't ride up is a real struggle!

Over the last few years, I've learned that chino-type shorts are the best for my body, and fortunately, I have found a few places with shorts that work perfectly! Allow me to share them with you:


Target has a pretty good selection of shorts each year--I haven't bought any this season, because I have most of the basics they're carrying. They have some really cute patterned ones, but none that I feel like I'd wear a lot. But I have a few pairs from past seasons, and they fit perfectly! I like their 5'' shorts, because they're long enough, but the 3'' is a good option if you're a shortie or prefer your shorts to be shorter!
Old Navy: 
Old Navy always has shorts in a TON of patterns and solids each spring/summer. I picked up a black pair a few months ago because I felt like I could wear black shorts a lot, but I've got my eye on a few of their patterned ones as well! They offer 3'', 5'', and beyond depending on the coverage you're looking for.

J. Crew Factory:

J. Crew Factory chino shorts are what made me fall in love with chinos. Like the others, they come in 3'', and 5'', but they also offer 4'' and some longer lengths. They also have thinner (oxford) and thicker (chino) shorts depending on your preference! (I prefer the thicker chino ones because they don't roll or wrinkle as easily as the day goes on! The shorts I'm wearing in my outfit photos are the J.Crew 5'' oxford shorts.

I broke out shorts for one of the first times this season with these beauties! They look like kind of a light blue in these photos, but they're more of a seafoam green in person. I paired the shorts with a striped tee, sandals, and a statement necklace for a lunch date with a friend!

What is your experience with shorts? Is it easy for you to find them, or have you struggled like me? What are you go-to places to find shorts?
