Shorts are hard. After reading so many of your comments on our mom shorts posts, I think most of you agree. It is hard to find a pair that cover enough without looking frumpy, are comfortable and look cute. But here at TME, we are determined to help everyone find their perfect pair, so after trying Good American jeans this past year and loving them, I decided to give their longer shorts a try.
Let’s be honest, longer shorts are just way more practical than short-shorts . . . I can sit cross-legged or bend over without risking exposure and I don’t have to worry about spider veins or cellulite (we all have them, ladies). BUT. “Practical” is usually not code for “attractive.” Which is why I’m pretty excited about these shorts. I think they’re pretty damn good . . .
Abercrombie & Fitch Open Back Crew Sweater: The back is the best part . . . also in red, I’m wearing a size small.

I also wanted to try them with a bodysuit, a la the girls of the Good American Campaign. This is the same bodysuit I wore with my J. Crew ruffled shorts, and I love it. It actually fits my booty without riding up . . . I do not want a thong bodysuit, thankyouverymuch. I do like how a bodysuit looks with these higher-waisted shorts and how it highlights your waist.
Yummie by Heather Thomson Convertible Bodysuit: This is the first bodysuit I’ve found that doesn’t ride up and is comfortable . . . it also comes in a nude color.
