Summer is finally in full swing here in Chicago, so what better way to beat the heat than in some fun cacti-printed shorts. These shorts are interesting not only for their hilarious print, but also because I’ve never really worn truly high-waisted shorts/pants before. I found I quite like the high-waist in these shorts, as I think they do a good job of elongating one’s legs. Not sure if I’m ready to take the plunge with full-length high-waisted pants just yet (baby steps!). These shorts would be great paired with a pair of wedges, but I went with my latest pair of sandals from Modcloth. Surprisingly comfortable and a somewhat chicer than a pair of flip flops, I’m hoping these will serve me well in my travels around Portugal in a couple weeks.
