Sometimes when we see trends up close, it’s like the “big old mess” Cher described in Clueless. Not so with the faded-floral-high-waisted-scalloped-edge shorts Emily Maynard rocked in the first week of May while at the A Better World Charlotte golf tournament. And while we can’t imagine sitting through a golf tournament, we have a feeling these shorts would make everything better.

Emily showed off the look with a pale pink long-sleeved sweater, turquoise ring, white statement necklace, and perfect gams — the latter being the ideal accessory when you want your shorts to say nice things about you.

We are constantly envious of Em’s beauty, and since she put these shorts on, the Internet has exploded with buyers scooping them up from copycat sites. Although Mod Cloth’s version is sold out, with all the wise buyers of the world snatching them before we could, you can grab similar styles on Nasty Gal and Go Jane (you know, for the next ten minutes until they’re gone too).

But let’s pause for a second to check in, because Emily is a lot like the rhinestones she so frequently wears: when you stare at them for too long, you get a little hypnotized. Do you love this look or wonder if poor Ricki had to go off to school in her second favorite pair of faded floral-print high-waisted shorts? Weigh in below.
