Wearing Shorts





It's time for another theme week, and July is the perfect time to be wearing some shorts.  I'm so excited to have Ginny from My New Favorite Outfit as my co-host this month.  We'll be kicking it off on Monday and wearing shorts all week long, so please join us for some or all of the days!  

So, let's talk about shorts.  I like shorts, which is weird, because I don't like pants.  And aren't shorts just pants with the legs chopped off?  It seems like a lot of women don't like shorts, because thighs should be hidden away in shame.  I always get nervous when I see/hear women with much thinner legs than me talking about how they can't wear shorts, because of how fat their thighs are.  People would definitely run in terror as you clomp down the street.  Sometimes I worry that they are right, and then my legs are definitely not shorts-worthy.  But then again, no.  Ladies: stop being crazy.  You look fine.  Buy some shorts.  It will be okay.  I promise.

It's also the Third Thursday of the month, so that means I'm joining in with Bri at Work Clothes, I Suppose.  I decided to bump my July theme to next week, so I wouldn't run into a conflict with Third Thursday Threads, and then she picked the exact same theme as I was planning, so it would have been perfect.  Oh well, just another excuse to wear shorts.

  1. I'm so ready to join in with you two next week. I'm in shorts every day right now! I used to worry about wearing shorts too but then I found some that I felt comfortable in and now you couldn't get me to stop wearing them. I really like these fun shorts with the chambray popover!

  3. I'm one of those lady you speak of. I trying to figure out my hate with shorts. I might have to break out of my comfort zone and wear a pair of short.

  4. You look darling! I love the bright pattern! I just posted on my blog about how I got over my fear of shorts and showing my thighs, too. It's freeing... and a lot cooler in this summer heat! :)

    xo Always, Abby

  5. For a couple years I felt like I shouldn't be wearing shorts. Then one day I woke up and was like, who really cares?! It isn't like anyone is going to come up to you and tell you that you shouldn't be wearing shorts. I think you look great! I love that pair you have!

  7. These shorts are so fun! I didn't wear shorts for a long time, but I started to a couple years ago and they are comfortable and keep me cool in the summer and who cares what others think! If you like it and feel comfortable, that's all that matters :)

  8. For a few years, I felt that I wasn't meant to wear denim shorts because I couldn't find any non-booty denim shorts or non-mom jean-jean shorts. Then I realized that other stores besides Kohl's sold shorts, and found some that fit. (Thanks, Old Navy!) I like shorts (when they fit), and I actually really like them with long sleeve shirts. I'll be joining in in on the fun next week!

  9. Ooh! I pretty much live in shorts all summer long (I just posted a look with shorts today, actually), so I am excited to participate next week!
    My mom is one of those women who thinks she's too old/fat/wrinkly/whatever for shorts (none of those descriptors are accurate, by the way), and it makes me sad. Shorts are so fun and summery! I really like your pair here. I own about a gazillion pairs of shorts, but none of them are floral...add that to my wishlist!

  10. Hooray for shorts! I finally have some shorts that I like and that fit, so I've been wearing them a lot this summer. The 15-20 lbs I gained over the past two years means that the shorts I have that you're wearing today don't fit me right now :( But I'm keeping them around because I'm DETERMINED to make them fit, ha! They're my favorites and I love how comfortable and light they are! I love how you styled them with chambray here :)
