How many times have you seen me wearing shorts on the blog? I think zero, right? Unless it’s an old post I don’t remember.
But I decided this summer was the summer I was going to break out of my self-imposed anti-shorts rule and finally stop wearing jeans all summer long! Okay, I always wear a lot of sundresses in the summer as well, but sometimes I don’t feel like wearing a dress or skirt. I’ve always had a thing about my legs, but you know what? The body acceptance movement has really helped me with that silliness. Cellulite? Guess what? Totally normal. Same with veins, stretch marks, chubby knees, wrinkles … normal, fine, no big deal.
So far I have two pairs of shorts, both from Everlane. (I know, I know … I’m obsessed lately … but if you’re tired of Everlane, I promise I have other brands coming soon!) I love both of them! I have these easy shorts, as well as this pair of denim shorts. I couldn’t resist when these shorts were labeled A-line! A-line shorts? Enough room for my thighs? Yeehaw, sign me up. And they didn’t disappoint. (True to size – I’m wearing a 29.)
Do you have a thing about covering up any particular body part? I’m sure I learned this from my mom who refused to leave the house without her knees, elbows, and decolletage completely covered up. If you feel comfortable, please share with us in comments!
