Fashion: Shorts Go Long!

Wearing shorts in the summer doesn't have to mean baring a whole lot of leg! If you're like us, you don't always feel like wearing the shortest of shorts or putting those hotpants on. Whether you're just hanging out with friends, going on a picnic or going for a bike ride - sometimes short shorts just aren't practical! We've found the best alternatives out there for longer shorts - from bermuda shorts, to flounce shorts - they come in every color, pattern, fabric and print so you don't have to sacrifice on style to go long! Check out our gallery of the best alternatives to short shorts!


How to wear shorts

Shorts seem to have gotten a bad reputation over the years. But with all of the cute colors and styles out there, it's easy to look effortlessly chic no matter which pair you choose. Sometimes khaki or white shorts can look a bit boring on their own. Try pairing them with a shirt that has a bit of of a different texture - something a bit shiny, lacy or with an eye-catching print! If you wear flouncy shorts with a lot of volume (some might even look like short skirts but we know better!), it's best to pair them with a tucked in t-shirt or shirt. You can never go wrong with pairing your shorts with a funky belt, cool little jacket and graphic tee. Pair with some gladiator sandals for day or some chunky heels if you want to dress it up!

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
