I haven't worn shorts in a few years. Well, I take that back: I wear shorts to sleep in, but never outside of the house. I didn't want to go through another summer of wearing long, heavy jeans, so I've been searching for shorts, capris, crops, etc. My search went in vain and I nearly gave up.
I was running through Target and stopped in the teeny tiny plus size section (seriously, it shrinks every time I go to Target). I saw some shorts in various colors, including my favorite, cobalt. They were roll-tab at the bottom, which I usually hate, but I thought it might be good to be able to adjust the length. They also had a sweatpant-like waist, even though there were buttons and a zip fly. I thought they had the potential to be comfortable, if not stylish.
