I will be 41 next week.
I have been thinking about what I want to wear this summer. My typical uniform of dark skinny jeans & tee isn’t ideal in 90+ temps with FL humidity. I rather like the idea of floaty linen dresses but one kid (ahem G) would probably drip their popsicle all over me, and then what?
Honestly, the answer is shorts. I don’t love to wear shorts but I just don’t see an alternative practical solution. I received a lovely gift of these shorts for Mother’s Day (along with a cute bag & 3 tank tops! Very nice job Josh & kids!):
Mine were a size too big (size inflation much, Madewell?) and I will exchange them but I am getting the same pair. But I also kind of want a new pair of denim shorts. I have heard great things about AGOLDE and kind of want to try some but . . . am I too old? WHAT IS THE CUTOFF AGE FOR CUTOFF SHORTS?
I don’t particularly love my legs but I also look rather frumpy in longer shorts because I’m short (and my legs are short too).
So there you have it. If you are late-30s or (gasp) over 40 like me, what are your thoughts on shorts? Specific brands or styles to recommend? Should I just stay in workout wear all summer? (It’s an option.)
