The Shorts Story

Blouse: OVI Fab’rik Boutique (similar) | Callahan Shorts: Lilly Pulitzer | Shoes: TOMS | Bag: Longchamp | Bracelet: Chewbeads (yes, it’s a teething bracelet for Lilly!) | Watch: Michael Kors | Earrings: Lia Sophia | Necklaces: Apricot Lane Boutique (similar) & White Plum c/o 

I apologize if the title of this post is misleading… there isn’t really a “story” about these shorts, per se. It’s really more just the fact that I’m wearing shorts. Or something.

I realize that one of my buttons is undone in the photo below… I didn’t realize it until it was too late. Oh well.

If I had to pick one part of my body that I dislike the most, it would be my legs. Sure, there are parts of my body that I DO like, but I’ve never liked my legs. And so shorts or even short skirts have just always made me feel uncomfortable.

Plus, so many shorts these days are just WAY too short. I’m just not cut out for shorts that are up to my rear, if ya know what I’m saying.

Anyway, it’s no secret I love Lilly Pulitzer and I finally got my hands on a pair of Callahan shorts and I’m so obsessed with them. The fit is PERFECT, the length is ideal, and they hold up – they don’t fade or fray or wrinkle or stretch… they just wear really well. The only problem I have now is that I want them in every color and pattern, however that would not bode well for my bank account.

I think the moral of this story is really about the fact that even if you aren’t confident in your legs or shorts or skirts are difficult for you to wear and feel confident in, it’s really about finding the RIGHT pair or the RIGHT skirt that works for your body.

Heck, that’s the moral of the story for ALL clothing, in my opinion. When something FITS well it makes a WORLD of difference. Right?!

What about you? What do you do that helps you feel more confident in what you wear?
