Pretty much since the time I entered puberty, shorts and I have not been friends. I've always felt uncomfortable in shorts because I've never had skinny legs. In the last year, after losing a ton of weight and figuring that I'd have to start looking good in shorts now, I've searched high and low for a flattering pair of shorts. But, alas, it turns out that there is no such thing as a pair of shorts that magically turn thick, muscular legs into skinny, long longs. Can you believe it?!
But in the corners of a semi-trashy teen store, I found a pair of shorts that I actually didn't hate myself in. And they were white! Another trend I thought my thighs were going to stop me from every participating in! It was my lucky day! $15 and a dozen bleach-pens later, I was the proud owner of shorts. White shorts.
I've been dreaming of an outfit like this for months. Since the beginning of spring, really. When wearing a sweater with a pair of shorts made more sense than it makes in 85-degree-June-weather. But thankfully, I am constantly cold and will probably be cold in this outfit unless it's 85 degrees out, so I suppose it works out. I would love this outfit with a pair of sandals as well, but I just couldn't resist wearing it with a pair of heels first!
