I love high-waisted shorts and those white cuffed ones on that fashion flash back!
hope you have a great weekend, darling!

Sheri said...

Great pics of shorts! I wish I had the confidence to wear shorts. For now I'll stick with the longer version :)

Brunch at Saks said...

I'm so happy you did a post on these shorts! They are so cute, fun, and look great with heels on a night out or flats during the day!

Love them! Have a great weekend :) :)

Funms-the rebirth said...

Jennifer said...

Who likes short shorts? Jennifer likes short shorts! :P
Okay, I'm a dork.
Yeah, I absolutely love all the shorts you posted, especially the floral ones with the high heel sandals. Must get a pair!

Meg said...

After a few summers of not really liking to wear shorts, this summer they are definately back 9at least for me). I don't think I've worn shorts this much since junior high. Definately a huge part of my summer style.

WendyB said...

I do need one pair of shorts at least.

thischicksgotstyle said...

The first picture is amazing!!

Erika said...

I desperately want those Catharine Malandrino Bubble Shorts. And those Madison Marcus Metamorphosis Shorts remind me so much of a pair of Chloe's that I have been coveting for months; thus, I'll take them too. Love this post!

Bradford said...

Still waiting for the weather to cooperate with summer wardrobe!

Jaime said...

Love the Jcrew shorts...pondering them myself!

Savvy Mode SG said...

shorts are so much more interesting than pants.

J'Adore Fashion said...

got to love shorts--i like the helmut and the drop shorts!!!
xoxo

atelier said...

I am looking for one of those!

Children of the Nineties said...

I love shorts, especially those striped ones! Not a huge fan of the tap-pant style ones, though...Have you seen that picture of Whitney Port wearing tap pants and a cropped t shirt? Usually I admire her risk-taking, but this was ridiculous.

Elizabeth Marie said...

I just bought some joes shorts yesterday! Need to tan up and tone up haha!

Happy Friday CC! XOXO

Sher said...

Love all but the horizontal stripe shorts by JCrew. That is one part of the body most women are trying to look thinner and they put horizontal stripes there! yikes!

Tracy-Girl said...

I can't wait to get into some fun shorts weather! I love these! Thanks for the ideas :)

tiltumaria said...

I WANT THEM ALL! I wish it were warm enough for short, don't know what's up with the weather...

Lily said...

janettaylor said...

Miss Yaya said...

i have always been thoroughly obsessed with paper bag waists and shorts are much easier to pull off than pants and skirts

TheBeautyFile said...

I have to say, I stopped wearing shorts a few years ago because I stopped liking my legs. Now I am back on the shorts wagon...LOVING the nautical shirt girl with the crazy gorgeous red sandals...VOGUE 2006- my gosh girl, you are quite resourceful!!

Eda said...

Great selection! Now I'm going to do some gymnastic...I need it in order to be able to wear shorts:)

E said...

I love the satin Maison Marcus beauties!

issa said...

oooh i wish i could wear nonbermuda shorts to work.. i really want a pair of paperbag waist shorts!

HiFashion said...

Is it possible to be in love with a picture? If so, I'm in love with that 1st picture. The outfit she's wearing is amazing.
I'm not a huge shorts wearer, but I recently got a nice pair which I can't wait to wear.

Margaux. said...

Some of those are adorable!

Wanderlusting said...

Still don't own a pair of shorts! That doesn't mean I'm not looking though, but I think only the Life With Bird silk paper bag shorts, would be flattering on moi :)

Irène said...

Ana said...

Wish the cloudy days would go away here in the SF bay area...wanting to pull the shorts back out again.

Particularly love that Brian Reyes print.

Isabel said...

These shorts are all gorgeous. You gotta love shorts.

The bold coloured ones are particularly nice. x

lookrichbitch said...

i think i always play it safe when i wear shorts.. i really like those baggier styles but i don't know if i can pull it off! darn it! i should just go try them on!

Diego R. Wyatt said...

Shorts are the epitome of summer style. I love the diverse range of takes on shorts. Although I am not sure how well those dinner shorts would go over (I guess it depends on the accessories and makeup, etc.), I love the Catherine Malandrino bubble shorts. The theory walking shorts are great and simple, I also like the Helmut Lang draped shorts.

Blair said...

Oh, wow! Love all of these. Better get theses gams to the gym!:) Have a fabulous weekend CC--excited to see your yellow post tomorrow!

thefatandskinnyonfashion said...
