The Find: Late Summer Shorts

Aug 21, 2020

Sanity walks are aptly named.  Since Sophie died, I’ve been averaging six miles per day.  And it is simply too hot to wear leggings outdoors.

My favorite shorts are the North Face Aphrodite shorts, but they are sold out everywhere.  So when I needed another pair, I turned to these Daily Ritual Tencel Drawstring Shorts.

The shorts are very comfortable and good for casual wear or outdoor exercising.  They have a loose but not baggy fit.  They have a 4″ inseam and an adjustable drawstring.  The sizes run XS to XXL.

    “Sanity Walk”. So true.

    I call them “sanity walks” during the day and post-dinner “wine walks” with a certain beverage in a to-go mug.

    when the rain returns to seattle I just don’t know what I’m going to do…. (my dog is a huge baby about walking in the rain).

    North Face Aphrodite are awesome!!

    I can also recommend the Old Navy High-Waisted StretchTech Performance Shorts. I got them in the 5″ inseam and even though they were a little long (and thus not as flattering as I would’ve like), I kept them b/c they were so comfortable. Good pockets too

    I’ve been living in Old Navy’s Breathe ON Utility-Pocket Shorts for Women for months now. They have a 4.5 inch inseam, which I appreciate (no chafing) and are very soft. No back pockets though if that’s important to you.

    There’s too much smoke here (Colorado) to walk outside and I miss my sanity walks so much!

Shopbop’s Best Slight-Splurges

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
