I’ve always been a fan of dresses and skirts over pants and shorts. But now that I’m pumping every few hours, I tend to gravitate towards clothes that make it a bit easier and right now- they are shorts.
This is pretty much my go-to outfit: shorts, plain tee, perhaps a necklace, and sandals. Super comfortable and practical.
Shorts have always been tricky for me because the inseam is either too short (can we say chafing anyone?!) or too long, which isn’t very flattering on someone that is only 5’5” and doesn’t have skinny thighs. After a lot of trial and error, I’ve discovered that 4 inches is the perfect short inseam for me. But where to find them?!
Enter the J. Crew boardwalk shorts. Elastic waistband. Super fun colors (and prints!) and comfortable to the max. But they only came in 3 inch and 5 inch options. I opted for the 3 inch version and had them altered…by my Momma. (Thanks Mom!!!)
These shorts are made really well so that you can let out hem to create a slightly longer inseam without them looking “altered.” She also sewed down the pockets (which I wouldn’t use anyways) and it made for a more slimming effect instead of the pockets “poofing” out, especially after the fabric creases after a day of wear. Much better!
What is your perfect shorts inseam?
