Alternatives to Shorts for Hot Days

June 1, 2023

I hate shorts. That’s just me.  I don’t believe in rules like no shorts over a certain age, but honestly I just don’t feel cute and comfortable in a pair.  If you’re like me, you’re always looking for shorts alternatives on a hot day. Here’s some cute things to consider.



Midi & Maxi Skirts

Summery Pants


Do you like shorts? If so, what kind do you wear?  If not, what’s your favorite alternative?


This week is the last week of the school year for me! It’s been so busy and I’m really looking forward to my time off!  We’re also planning a special vacation, so stay tuned for that as well!


Fun & Fashion,

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce.
