Inspired by Angie's post about long shorts, I looked for them in a few stores today while I was out shopping.
I tried on a couple of interesting pairs at Anthropologie and a more traditional looking style at JCrew.

The ones I tried at Anthro are Pilcro Gaucho shorts (pics 1-3) and Pilcro Cropped PJ Wide-Leg Jeans (pics 4-6).

At JCrew I tried on the Pleated Button Front Chino shorts in faded moss and white (pics 7-10).

I thought both of the Pilcro shorts were fun, but they didn't feel enough my style to get them. The JCrew shorts remind me of a pair I had in the late 90s that I loved. I was unsure about them in the store, but came home and ordered them to try again.

I am reminded how much I like shorts that reach the knee, and I think I might enjoy some even longer ones. I look forward to finding some more to try out.

Bonus pic 11: what I wore: cream jeans (Paige), wavy-print tee in pinks and earth tones (made by me), off-white Betty Cardigan (Sézane), cream loafers (27 Edit), sage crossbody Transport Camera Bag (Madewell), light olive belt (Fossil).

(I can't make the Finds work, so I used links.)

Just thought I'd share in case anyone is interested in these styles.
