I’ve always been a very short person, I think MAYBE I was of average size in 6th grade, but then I stopped growing completely in 7th at 4’10”. During my awkward adolescence I read some magazine article about how shorter girls will continue to look shorter if they wear shorts, and despite all my fashion expertise, it’s subconsciously stuck with me. I have worn shorts before, don’t get me wrong, I own a few pair for sure, but I’ve never felt COMFORTABLE in them personally. Between that 13 year old magazine article, and my cellulite, I always put them off as just “not for me”.
However, a few weeks ago I found a pair of cut-off mint denim shorts that was on such a good sale, I figured I may as well purchase them, because who passes on a $4 pair of shorts? They could always be used for days I know I’m not leaving the house! It’s been SO warm down here in Saint Petersburg, that I threw them on yesterday, and I actually felt GOOD! I’m not talking like, “oh these are comfortable and I can move” good, I mean I felt SEXY. Something about how they fit my body just felt RIGHT.
So I wore them out and about in PUBLIC- probably the first time I’ve worn shorts in public in a least a year. James snapped some awesome pics of me playing with Cash and running around with him. We had SO much fun & for a change I could move freely without sweating, or worrying that I was showing off some inappropriate parts!
While it was warmer during the day, I threw a navy and white cardigan over my white tee shirt with the mint shorts before we went out. In St.Pete, we often get wonderful breezes at night, so I didn’t want to get chilly either. I also broke in my new teal flats! I love the punchy color of these flats, which were super easy to run in and added an unexpected pop of color to my outfit!
