You know what they say: “You haven’t truly lived until you’ve worn a pair of mint green shorts with pink flamingos on the butt.”

Uh…I’m sure someone said that, right?


Babe, $10 shorts from Old Navy! I almost did a cartwheel in the store when I stumbled on these last night.

Ah, yes…this is one of those times when I realize just how much I am my mother’s daughter, because of how excited I get about a good sale, which reminds me, I need to call and tell her about this sale!

Before I went down there yesterday, I checked the website and saw that they had shorts on sale for $8-15.

Sweet! I thought, but I wanted to try them on in the store to make sure about the fit and colors.

I’ve purchased stuff online from Old Navy before, and the experience has always been a little hit or miss. The sizing’s inconsistent. I can try on three different pairs of pants in the same size, and each one will fit a little differently. I seem to have better luck in the stores, so nowadays I just brave the chaos (does anyone else get overstimulated at Old Navy?), and try stuff on.

Mmm… Peach sherbet.

I expected to snag one or two pairs for $15 each, but when I rolled in, there were signs all over the place saying $10 sale on all shorts. They had a TON of different styles, too. Denim, twill, solids, prints, casual and dressy in a variety of lengths.

I tried the 3″, 3 1/2″, 5″ and 11 1/2″ lengths and liked the 3″ ones the most. I’m not very tall — actually, I’m short — and the other lengths made me feel, um, shorter.


My faves are the mint green pair with embroidered pink flamingos. Very Golden Girls meets Gwen Stefani, yeah? I now realize that I’ve had a huge gaping hole in my life that desperately needed to be filled with more pink flamingos.

NOTE TO SELF: Need more pink flamingos

Of course I love the ice cream truck colors, but the store had a lot of more conservative colors, too, like tan, khaki and black, if mint green and pink flamingos aren’t your thing.

The checkout guy said that the sale was going on at all the Old Navy stores, but you might want to call yours before heading down there. I’m not sure how long the sale lasts, so if you need pairs of $10 shorts in your life, better act fast.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    I went there yesterday and bought 5 pairs myself, although none were with flamingos! They were like the ones you have on in the pictures and were very comfortable and stretchy.

  2. Danielle says:

    Ahh! I braved the Old Navy store this past weekend and got several pairs of these. I love them. When I found out the price I couldn’t be stopped. I got the typical colors, white, navy, Black and Tan. But I also added yellow, olive and coral to switch it up. I could live in these shorts!

    Well, I suppose if you can’t have cats on your butt, flamingos will do, right?

    I love a good sale. That’s like the excitement that I felt when I went into my favorite store last weekend, Christopher & Banks, and they had $5 tank tops and $10 t-shirts. Got a navy blue tank top and a red t-shirt (wore the t-shirt today to go see fireworks). And then I scored a great deal on the coolest scarf — red, white, and blue animal print! I love this thing! So I’m so set for the holiday weekend!

    I’ve seen these in Old Navy. They are so cute, especially the flamingo ones, but a bit too short for me at the workplace. I sound boring but I like to purchase clothing which I could wear both on the weekends and at work.

    All those shorts do look great on you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Chelsea says:

    I noticed the flamingo ones a couple weeks ago! My mom is obsessed with flamingos, her bathroom is decorated with them.

    I saw flamingo panties at Target a week or two ago too!

    Cute! Did you get the shirts from Old Navy as well?
