It’s Summer so it’s Shorts time! And how to wear them? These fabulous bloggers show it to you in The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Shorts!
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?
It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So let’s start with this month’s theme: Shorts!
First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge
My white denim shorts from Torrid were a Good Buy. I love the fit and the length of these shorts and had been wanting white denim ones for a while. I finally found these last year and absolutely loved them…except now I have lost weight and they might be a bit too big!

Shorts, for the most part, are a Good Bye item for me. During the summer months, I gravitate towards one-piece easy dressing, wearing jumpsuits and dresses 90% of the time. I’m not sure what my hesitation is about shorts, as I wear jeans 75% of the time during cold weather months. It could be the fact that I have long legs and a short torso – and shorts make me feel out of proportion.

These are one of my favorites. Their stretchy and oh so comfortable. I reach for them on that first really hot summer day.

Perfect theme for summer. These are my good buy shorts. I bought them about a month ago. They’re super comfortable and have a higher waist which I just like better and I’m wearing them a lot this summer
And here is Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Style
I love these blue shorts that I bought at Target. I have to laugh that I’ve been wearing shorts more now that I’m older, than I did 10 years ago. And I have a feeling my collection will grow even more when I move to AZ…LOL!!

My good buy Thrifted them for 3.99 @jcrew brand
And here are my shorts!
Havn’t got these anymore, they were to small, but I bought a new pair that I showed you here. And I also wore shorts for Match Made in Seven!
We hope you liked The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Shorts and until next month!

Great post and subject….I think it’s fun that so many joined in!!
We think so too! And next month theme is so good, I look forward to see all those entries!
Shorts are perfect for sumner. Good you have a new one. You look amazing Nancy.
Thank you Tina!
Yay for shorts and now summer is almost over! Everyone looks amazing as always. I am excited for the lace theme! By the way, my links are all updated. Thanks for the heads up!
Thanks Shelbee! I am looking forward to lace too, I think we will see some gorgeous outfits with it!
Love how you styled your shorts Nancy with that blazer! Great way to show off a great pair of legs!
Thanks Kellyann, sadly this was a few years ago and my legs aren’t that good lookin anymore!
Love all these shorts! I wish I wore them more but it’s so hard finding the right fit. I adore your striped ones. I have the ones Jodie is wearing!
I agree with you, it is hard to find a good one!
Look at all you gorgeous ladies wearing shorts. If I would even look half as good in them, I’d wear them, but sadly I don’t. I have to laugh now, as I wore them a lot in my 30s. I even wore a short suit (with matching jacket) to my sister’s wedding. And no, I’m not going to share it 😉 xxx
Oh come on Ann!You can’t say something like that and then don’t show it!
Love this post! So many cute shorts!
Always a fun post! Now you got me thinking if I have anything with lace…?
Haha, if you search long enough? Hope you find something!
I have a love and hate relationship with shorts, but it was more love this summer! Lol! But, I think I’m ready for some cooler weather and pants! Loved seeing all the adorable shorts on these ladies!
I am not at all ready for cooler weather! Let it be Summer all year! Lol. Happy weekend Carrie!
Shorts are definitely a good buy, especially in the summer heat! 🙂 So many stylish shorts outfits here!
Hope that your week has been a good one and you have a nice weekend ahead of you 🙂
Thanks Mica, enjoy your weekend!
I wear my denim shorts a lot during the summer, although I do tend to gravitate towards lightweight dresses and skirts…
I love dresses and skirts more! Thanks Debbie!
What a fun selection from everyone! I have yet to wear my one pair of shorts, but as mentioned before, they are bright orange, high-waisted, pleated (!!) and LEATHER. It’s got to be the right environment/occasion for them!
Have a fantastic weekend, Nancy!
Gosh I want to see those!
Everyone looks so cute in their little shorts!! I’m not a shorts wearer as just don’t find them comfortable and don’t have the legs for them but they can really make such a fun and summery outfit!! Thank you for sharing, Nancy!!
Oh come on, I don’t have the legs for it either Donna! Thanks love!
These ladies all rock Nancy! Love, Lieske
