Before this summer I had only worn shorts while working out. Charlottesville doesn't get that hot during the summer so I had never had a reason to wear shorts. But, the Charleston heat really packs a punch, so some days shorts are necessary. I've picked up a few pairs since being here, including this embellished pair from J.Crew being my favorite. There are a ton of great sales going on, so now is the time to add some playful pieces to your wardrobe. See my picks below, and view my favorite shorts so far this summer here and here.
