I confess to wearing a pair of shorts today when I went down to the shops (shock! horror!). Some of you may think that a woman in her 60s shouldn't be walking around town in shorts, but they weren't skimpy ones and my loose top wasn't revealing, so it was a comfortable outfit on a hot summer's day. It also passed the critical husband test: "Do I look ok in these shorts?" "They're fine." I doubt if anyone walking behind me would have assumed that I was 16 from what I was wearing, so I didn't have to worry about looking like a woman in her 60s when seen from the front.
I do have other options, but my loose linen trousers are in the laundry basket, it was far too windy to wear a demure knee-length skirt (a woman in her 60s doing a Marilyn Monroe impression is not a good look!), my dresses are a bit too dressy for everyday wear, so I went for the shorts.
