    I used to work at Old Navy and these shorts have caught my eye before. They have styles other than seashorses. They really are cute, but unfortunately I’m too tiny for these shorts! Even the smallest size (0) gathers and bunches up in all the wrong places for me (I’m a size 0). Oh well! They are cute though!

    Gah I love those shorts so much! Never thought about the third idea of pairing teal with cobalt, but it works reaaally well here. :)
