Shopping Help: Printed Shorts

Is it too early for printed shorts?  I don’t know about where you are, but the weather here has been GORGEOUS.  Plus, I’ve had shorts on the brain since I was shopping for some that would fit my growing belly during our Hawaii trip.  I had no idea there would be printed shorts in PLENTY!
Many of these come in solids or different patterns/colors and come in various lengths between 3″-5″.  If you’re looking for much longer shorts, like 7″-10″ check the Old Navy site.  
Option 1 (Target) – I saw these at Target and loved them.  They might look like polka dots in the small collage up there, but they’re more like a diamond pattern.  If I weren’t pregnant I probably would have gotten them.  Okay fine.  I *did* buy them but realized it would be unrealistic to keep them at this point and willed myself to return them.  Comes in 3″ and 5″.

Option 2 (Target) – These aren’t printed, but they come in 8 happy colors!  Had to show them to you.  I think these also come in 3″ and 5″.  

Option 3 (Old Navy) – Black and white polka dotted shorts in case you want to ease your way into patterned bottoms!  They’d go great paired with any colored flats–red, green, yellow, cobalt–anything!

Option 4 (J.Crew Factory) – These are denim, patterned shorts.  I don’t know what it is, but I love these!  

Option 5 (J.Crew Factory) – Also very cute…they’re supposed to have a little bit of stretch to them, but I haven’t felt them in person to say for sure.  

Option 6 (LOFT)  |  Maternity VersionI bought the maternity version of these, and they are soooo comfy.  I don’t know about the non-maternity version, but the maternity pair is a softer material than I thought it’d be.  And LOFT maternity panels are SO SO SO SO SO comfy!  
I waited for them to be 50% off,  Otherwise they’re pretty expensive.  The picture is deceiving–it looks black, but the print is actually a dark navy.  It *might* even have some subtle (very subtle) hints of green too.  That, or I’m colorblind.  

Option 7 (J.Crew Factory) – Pretty floral print that’s not TOO floral.  Very cute!  Would easily be super casual with a white tee, denim jacket, and sandals, or a little preppier with a chambray top and cute wedges.  

Option 8 (Old Navy) – I showed these because they’re a linen blend, which I’m *thinking* means fluid, light, and airy?  Comes in 9 different colors and seem like they’d be great for lounging and other activities in warmer weather!  The only question is if they’re a linen blend, are they itchy?  Anyone tried these in person??

Option 9 (Old Navy) – If I could fit into these I’d be curious to try them, given that they’re called “drapey shorts.”  Looks like they also have a lot of room and are maybe even more conducive to that fluid, light, and airy feeling.  You could dress this pair up or down too.  Comes in a teal print and two solids as well.  

Option 10 (Old Navy) – If you were hoping Option 1 was polka dots and were let down, then here’s your pair.  Very cute!

Option 11 (Old Navy) – Like I said earlier, Old Navy has a bunch of longer shorts, just not a lot of printed ones unfortunately. Here’s a longer pair with a cute anchor print though!
Option 12 (J.Crew Factory) – This is another pair that could help you ease your way into printed bottoms.  Not scary, right?!

I realized I don’t own printed shorts, so I’m really excited about all these options and also really bummed that I don’t fit them!  Haha.  Probably for the better because there are soooo many cute ones out there.
What prints would you go for this spring and summer?
