Who wears short shorts? Old Navy Sample and Share #crowdtap

I'll tell you who doesn't wear short shorts...that would be this girl right here! Now don't get me wrong, back when I was in my 20s that's all I would wear, short shorts. Now that I'm older and I've had two kids I don't think it would be possible for me to wear short shorts. If I did they might just put me on one of those "people of Walmart" sites. Yes, it's that scary. As a matter of fact, I don't wear any shorts anymore. I'm more comfortable in skirts, dresses or jeans. Yes, jeans, even in the summer!

However, we all know how cheap frugal I am, so when I was chosen to do a sample and share with Old Navy from Crowdtap, then I jumped all over it. I mean who wouldn't? You get a free coupon to get a pair of shorts (which I otherwise would have never bought) and an additional coupon to give to a friend. Normally, I would take that friend shopping with me but this time, I just couldn't do it. I gave it to my neighbor and then I ventured out to do the humiliating shorts shopping on my own.

Now trust me I know that Old Navy has a great variety of shorts to choose from. I mean just look:

They were in all colors, all sizes and all lengths. Did that make me feel better? Yes, a little. And do believe I tried on thousands of pairs. Just look at my first go around:

 So what was the final result? Did I find a pair I fell in love with? Did I even find a pair that would fit? No and yes. I didn't find a pair of shorts that I just HAD to have. I honestly thought they all looked horrendous on me. That may just be my own little warped self image but it's true. I didn't even want to take pictures of myself in the shorts. Yes. I did find some that fit. I really wanted a denim pair but I just couldn't find in that looked great on me. So instead I tried to opt for the best of both worlds. I bought a pair of the bermuda shorts that have an adjustable length. Does this mean I'm going back to buy more? Not sure. However, all shorts are on sale right now, so who knows! And of course I couldn't leave without picking up more items. The sports bra was marked down to $5 and the swim top was just what I needed! 

Disclosure: I was provided a coupon to purchase this item in exchange for sharing my experiences with others. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
