The Shorts Alternative

I’ve mentioned on the blog before that I’m not much of a fan of shorts.  I like a pair of denim Bermuda shorts in the summer, but that’s about it.

I don’t have a problem showing my legs, but shorts inevitably always seem to ride up in the middle.  I find this so annoying and unattractive that I generally just avoid shorts altogether. 

Last month, I discovered these skirt shorts from New York & Company.  They are actually shorts, but the flouncy legs create the effect of a skirt.

Now, this is what I’m talking about!!

Top:  ASOS Curve (Available here)

I love them, and I thought they looked great paired with a crop top and a moto jacket.  I wore this outfit last Saturday while out running errands.

Satchel:  The Limited
Locket:  Vintage
Bracelet:  Paperdolls Boutique
Booties  Target (Available here)

I don’t usually dress to please my fiancé, but it was nice that he couldn’t stop saying how much he loved this outfit and how I looked in it.  🙂

When the weather warms up more, I can see myself pairing these shorts with simple tees and tanks and flat sandals for easy summer style.

Are you a fan of wearing shorts?  Any tips for preventing the ride-up factor?
