  • I love the first pair of shorts, the color is so cute!

  • It’s funny you posted that I am wearing printed shorts on my blog today. They are adorable and now I want more.

  • Cute outfit! I’m on the hunt for printed shorts. I saw a lot of cute ones a few weeks ago but conveniently, none in my size! Have a great weekend Alison!

  • I bought a pair of printed shorts about a month ago and I have already worn them 3 times! They are definitely an instant update to your wardrobe and so easy to just get up, get dressed and go. Have a great weekend!

  • The printed shorts are so cute! I’ve been eyeing some from Gap, but was just afraid they’d be too short. I love all the other options you found!

  • Timely post! I am intent on making a pair of printed shorts soon. We’ve had rainy weather here almost all June, but they promise sun is coming this weekend. My legs are not my greatest asset, so I am concerned about getting the length right. I like your examples, and the styling is very nice.
