Last semester I had no issue wearing my Nike shorts to class. However, this semester, I have several professors who look down on girls who wear work out shorts. I think they only dislike the most common type of shorts - the tempo track shorts.
For Christmas, Mammy and Grandman gave me some Nike shorts that were kind of different and they have become my favorites! They are still comfy like Tempo Track shorts, but they don't come with the negative connotation.
Here are some other styles I like.
P.S. Nike is on the brain because my tennis shoes still haven't come in yet! Come on, shoes! Hurry up!
