Can No Longer Wear Daisy Dukes but Still Want to Wear Shorts in the Summer – Talbots to the Rescue!

We all have things about our bodies that we like to highlight and those we’d like to minimize.  I was blessed with my mother’s legs.  My dad always said her legs were what first caught his eye.  I think my legs look pretty good, but I am a 55 year old woman and time has taken its toll.  I can’t wear short shorts anymore but I don’t want to be resigned to Bermuda shorts the rest of my life either.  You can imagine my delight when I stumbled upon Talbot’s line of shorts that come in lengths 5, 7, 9, and 13 inches!  You can buy the length that gives you the coverage you want. Nothing short of brilliant – way to go Talbots!  It gets even better – they come in a variety of colors and patterns.   My favorite is the 5 inch length. They are just long enough to hide the top part of my thigh and yet short enough to show some leg!  They have slanted side pockets that come sewn shut which allows you the option to keep them that way for a flat smooth line or to open them up.  They also provide a great fit with a generous cut in the waist and thighs. I’ve bought them in khaki and white.  As you can see I am getting my money’s worth  – I’ve been wearing them everywhere!



Note: All opinions are completely my own.  I was not asked by anyone to do a Talbots review, and did not receive any compensation for it.
