Happy Shorts - Madness or Genius?
When I saw them in amongst the crowd I was captivated, so bright! so right! but Oh, so wrong.
I'm talking about the shorts. At first I thought they were sooo hideous. They have lots of bright colours all woven together in checkers. They have a waistband that sits on my ACTUAL waist, which means they also have a fly thats 25cm long. They have gathers in the front, and capacious pockets that can fit your hands, plus a first aid kit, a hat AND a handbag.
So I was thinking. Maybe if I lowered the waist band and removed the gathers, and either left them as shorts, or made them into a skirt? In summer, accessorized with a white tank and sandals?
Am I a genius, or have I just gone mad?
