I'm a bit on the fence about these shorts. Let's just forget about the cute waistband and tie for a moment. When I'm standing up, they seem like they could be work appropriate with a blazer. But when I'm sitting down...well, they're just a tad on the short side. During times where I'm already at work before I notice that I'm showing a bit too much leg, I'll avoid leaving my desk at all costs. Being at a corner desk, I can easily hide. But this means not getting up for lunch, strategically dehydrating myself so I don't have to use the washroom, and ending the day with the chair equivalent of bed sores.
