I was talking to a friend the other day who just had a baby. None of her warm weather bottoms fits her yet and she needs shorts! I generally don't spend much on things like shorts, although a nice pair of denim cutoffs from your favorite designer denim brand is great, sometimes you want something you can really kick around in and not worry about them (or like my friend you just need a temporary size). For those kinds of things I go to Old Navy, and they have cute shorts. For starters these knee length oxford bermudas -
They would look adorable with a tank, sandals and a fun necklace to dress it up a bit.
If you want to go a little shorter, these button pocket shorts are adorable (and under $20!) -
