Good news! I FINALLY got jean shorts. I am so hip now. It took me a while to find ones I liked because I’m very particular about not looking like a skank. Silly, I know. Maybe it’s my old age (28 as of yesterday, remember?) but I just don’t get the whole pockets-hanging-out-the-bottom-of-your-shorts look. It looks like your shorts shrank, but the pockets were made of some special fabric that didn’t shrink. Or like you have 10 rolls of quarters in each pocket weighing them down. Or like you were cutting your old jeans into shorts but you measured wrong and then your house caught on fire but you weren’t wearing any pants so you just had to put the shorts on and run outside and then your house burned down and destroyed all your other proper shorts so now you have no other choice than to wear your embarrassing mistake until the insurance check comes through.
Anywho, the point is: I didn’t want what I call “denim underwear” and I didn’t want mom shorts, so I was happy to find these “boyfriend shorts.” They are actually pretty long but since they’re not too tight, it’s easy to roll them up to a length that I like. Which you may notice is far below the bottom of the pockets.
