I leave for vacation tomorrow and that means (you guessed it!) deciding what to pack. In addition to the obvious sundresses and swimsuits, I am packing quite a few pairs of my favorite shorts. But, by shorts I don’t mean cut-off denim, jersey fabric, or shorts small enough to fit a 10 year old!

Designers have embraced the power of a great pair of legs and shorts for 2012 are sophisticated enough to go from day to night! Look for special details like buttons, embellished hems, and of course, the perfect fit.

Here are a few of my top choices. See you after the 4th!
