I have mentioned a few times how I almost never used to wear shorts before, when I was heavier, at least not outside my house or on my blog where anyone can see. Then, I got over it and wanted to try a few pairs once in a while in the summer. I don’t care if my legs still aren’t thin, they’re thinner than a year or 2 ago. If you’re worried about wearing shorts because you’re not a size 2, try it! No one who matters cares what you want to wear or would say anything negative about it. I found this floral pair and knew I wanted to be adventurous and try wearing them. I had a bit of fun styling them two different ways and having a little photo-shoot. They may be a bit scandalous, for me anyway, especially the second look. Oh well… I like them. The mint colored top is very flow-y and loose and I though it would sort of offset the tight shorts… I’m not sure how much I like it though. It makes me look bigger because of the extra loose fabric.

2.) Shorts and a Sheer Crop Top…Oh My!
This is not an outfit, you’d usually find me in, but I was feeling like trying something new for fun. No, my stomach isn’t flat, but it looks better than it did a year or 2 ago as well. I hope to lose more weight by this summer so I can wear things like this and not feel silly. I like the way it looked. Wear what you want and what makes you happy, sometimes even push your boundaries…it’s fun and liberating.
