This is the first summer in over 16 years that I have rocked a pair of fashion shorts. I can't tell you exactly why I stopped wearing them. Perhaps, it was a couple of seasons of less than flattering trends in shorts that sent me running for skirts, dresses, and even jeans.
Now, I own six pairs of shorts which I purchased on sale at a nationwide chain retail store. Owning a few lightweight ponchos has also helped in lighting up my enthusiasm for wearing fashion shorts.
