Remember that commercial for Nair hair remover? Who Wears Short Shorts? Better yet, remember the original song by The Royal Teens? At one time or another, many of us (if you’re old enough to remember) were humming that annoying little tune on repeat—one of those little ditties that you couldn’t forget.
Well, dear friends, this is not a post about short shorts. At least it’s not about me wearing short shorts. That’s something I’ll never subject anyone to, ha, but it is a post about my favorite shorts and my bona fide love affair with Chicos So Slimming Bridgette shorts – specifically the 13-inch length style.
This is not a sponsored post either, although I have been gifted clothing from Chicos. I just wanted to share what I love about these shorts, in case you’re in the market for a pair or two. And yes, if you want to wear short shorts, Chicos has those too, and God bless ya! So let’s take a peek at my favorite style (I have six pairs!) and some of my fellow Chicos lover’s favorites, too! You might recognize a familiar face here, besides mine!
Do You Dare Wear Short Shorts? Nope.
Ok, so technically, a seven-inch inseam may not qualify as a short short, but to me, it sure is. Chicos offers shorts in seven-inch (Zenergy Collection), nine-inch, ten-inch, twelve, and thirteen-inch lengths, so I’m pretty confident the brand will have a pair with your name on them!
Chicos shorts are easy to wear, easy to take care of, and easy to pack for travel, making them the perfect choice to take on vacation. They’re also versatile. The styling opportunities really are endless. You can dress ’em up, or you can keep them casual.
So as promised, let’s see if you recognize any of these lovely ladies…
Sheree Frede @shesheshow
Sheree is a one-woman powerhouse! I don’t know if this woman sleeps! I smile when her posts pop into my inbox. If I want to know the latest in beauty, health, fashion, and even food, I can rely on Sheree to come through. What I enjoy the most about her blog is her travel section. This woman gets around! Heading to Paris? Read this. Tanzania, Africa? Sheree’s got you!
Sheree is very creative, too. I love this patriotic post from Instagram. Just smashing! Oh, and did I mention? She’s also an Oprah Ambassador. I told ya – busy lady!

If you don’t follow Julie, shame on you! LOL, she is one of the most creative fashion accounts I have come across on Instagram, and her blog, Fashion Trends and Friends, is so much fun. Julie always makes me smile! I love how this creative fashionista features fellow bloggers regularly and covers a variety of topics. Julie lives by the motto; You’re never too old! It’s never too late! Wear what you love! Her authentic review of Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment convinced me to give it a try. Also, if you’re into gingham, you need to check out this post!

This beautiful boss lady may indeed be petite, but she’s got a larger-than-life persona as an influencer. From make-up to skin-care, fashion, all things lifestyle, and faith, I admire her honesty, love her fashion sense, and adore her blog, Poised Petite. I also enjoy Michelle’s Insta stories – she’s always got something going on, and she covers all the bases. Her blog post on Spilling Skin Care Secrets is definitely a worthwhile read, and if you have any beach trips planned this summer, you’ve gotta read this one!
