Paper bags and plastic hearts

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.

  7. hahah usually I take a bag and place it on my lap when I feel that I'm showing too much of my legs. But it is definitely unavoidable if you have to stand up unfortunately :/ Nice shorts by the way! :)

  22. I like those paper bag shorts! I had a laugh at your office situation I've found myself in that scenario before! Don't you hate it when you think, ok everything is office appropriate them you get to work and realize it isn't? At least you have a sense of humour about things :)

  23. Phahaha, the problem with short shorts and skirts has always been prevalent for me too :D
    I love them though, they do seem to have a normal length. But if sitting down is a problem, you can always put short leggings underneath. Most people think it's ugly though, but I think it's practical :D
