    These are so ugly. If I saw someone wearing them on the Hill I would take a photo and send it to you as a fashion faux paux. What the hell would you wear with these?! Seriously…. trendy or not these are only cute on little girls- not grown women.

    Belle,

    I like these! I think they’re really cute… and sort of 1920’s! But what would you wear with them? Some kind of dress or skirt? I need ideas!

    I actually saw this on a educator on Monday. The look was one of two tone brown/tan and not black or navy/white. She
    wore them with dark brown slacks, simple two piece (cami and sheer over top) blouse and understated gold jewelry. They
    made the outfit. And after spending all day lecturing on her feet to over 250 students, her feet didn’t hurt.

The Find: My Best Workout Shorts

For eight years, I have worn the same workout shorts. Every year, an influencer tries to sell me new shorts. I order them. I try them on. They pale in comparison to the shorts I already own. I return them.
