Keep Cool Secret #4

Ok, so it's not much of a secret, but another way to maintain modesty and keep cool in the summer is simply to find yourself a great pair of shorts. I love me a pair of cutoffs from an old, ratty-but-extremely-comfortable pair of jeans. There are also a few companies that sell adorable long shorts that will help you feel happy in the heat. Here are some of my favorites:

First off, from the Gap (these are a little more pricey, but they are very cute, especially the denim):

Next up, Great Lengths Shorts. Shorts are their specialty, so they have some great selections. I dearly love those plaid ones. (They also have a whole page of denims!):

Last, if you're feeling a little adventurous and would like to make a pair of shorts, this is a pattern listed on Burdastyle that I fell in love with the moment I saw. (By the way, you have to become a member to download the patterns, but it is free and so totally worth the trouble):
