Singing praises for the best ever summer shorts

Abercrombie For this holiday weekend's BBQs, I didn't think twice about what to wear. My go-to summer shorts look just as stylishly worn-in as they did last summer. And the one before.

Say what you will about Abercrombie and Fitch. I've got to give credit where it's due. I've been wearing the same two pairs of A&F shorts for over a decade.

I bought them when Abercrombie was the IT label for the still-in-school set. I was checking out their store at the brand-new Citrus Park mall. (Sheesh, I'm getting old!) On a sale rack, I snagged classic shorts in khaki and navy.

Thirteen years later, they're still going strong. Sure, the khaki pair is a little frayed at the cuff. (Designers charge extra for that look.) My navy shorts look just as good as the day I bought them.

Now these shorts and I are like an old married couple. Slipping them on brings back a parade of happy memories -- beach days, backyard parties, movie nights at home. Maybe this year, we'll celebrate an anniversary. 

Does your closet have an Energizer bunny like my shorts? I want to hear the stories!
