I was in Italy at the time and it was scorching hot. It was so beautiful though and I decided to wear my highwaisted galaxy short one day. They used to be my sisters, she got them from Etsy. They are handmade and painted. Man, I wish I could paint that well. These shorts are epic. To add to the long list of my these shorts rock: they are super comfortable. Yes, these shorts can add some pizzazz to any outfit.
