I think most people fall into one of two categories when they shop. Either they buy something, rip the tags off and wear it immediately. Or, they keep the item and save it until they have the perfect time, place, or occasion to wear it. I fall into the second category. Case in point: I bought these shorts a month ago and wanted to wear them on the perfect day. It's odd because they could have and should have gotten so much more face time. However, now that I have broken the seal you will probably see them much more often, because they are just way too cute. These were definitely worth the wait!
