10 Summer Shorts for Girls who aren’t into Booty Shorts

By

23rd May, 2012

Over the weekend I was doing a spring clean of the ol’ closet and decided to say goodbye to a well-worn, much-loved pair of red denim booty shorts. You see, there comes a point when you get over the mid twenties hump and make the wise decision to stand up and say, “I’m not going to do what 17 year old girls are doing anymore’. So I present to you a selection of shorts, just a little less clingy, a little less short, but definitely not any less trendy!

1. Drape Shorts by Sabo Skirt, $48.00

BONUS D.I.Y. DENIM SCALLOP SHORTS:
