How's That Bomcie In Them Shorties?

It is about shorts.
I'm very selective in the ones I like. Not for me, but what I see on other people. I think most people look great in them.

They are worn so casually and yet I can't pick one up and just wear it.  I would like to. I might. But for now I sit and enjoy the view and make my designs in my mind.

I think it stems from me not wanting to share my skin. I feel it's not pretty to share and so I hide it away.

Or it might be even deeper in regards to growing up in church, back in those days when you were shamed by the older people if you wore or desired to wear a pair of shorts.

I take short journeys in my life to get past fears and insecurities, so I'm sure one day I'll pull myself out of this little self esteem box.

I was shopping with a friend of mine and her daughter. And we found some really nice shorts at Love Culture and I would LOVE to wear one or a few! Now if I had the money, that would be my go to store!  Take note of the beautiful colors!

What about you? Do you like shorts? Do you wear them? What is your motto on design: The shorter the better? Bits hanging out?

Share with me.

  1. I am constantly going back and forth w/my daughter about the shorts she wants to get. Goodness I'll be glad when they add some material to the things. I've let her go shorter than I'd like her too, but not near as short as she'd like (cuz it's the stylllllllllle). lol

    I used to wear short-shorts and think nothing of it as a kid/teen. I haven't told her that though, hehehe

  3. I don't wear shorts. It's not that I don't like them, I just prefer capris or dresses. I used to wear short shorts but that was before babies - LOL!

  6. I am a shorts wearer. I wear mine a little short but never anything hanging out. I'm short, so the near my knees the shorter and weirder I look. If I feel uncomfortable I run a check by my girls(21 &16 yrs old)....I tell them to not let me look like the "hoochie mama."

  9. When my twin and I were very young we wore shorts but the strangest thing Colette is that we stopped wearing shorts and pants rather early. My mom loves pants and wears them most of the time. For the longest while you will only see me in a dress or blouse and skirt. Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Ooh I love me some pants, but I think it's just a way of getting out of wearing skirts and shorts because I'm so self conscious :)

      Thanks for sharing Judy. have a fun weekend! :)

  10. I wear shorts when it is hot. I will not wear shorts if it is cool outside. I think there are definitely things certain people should not wear, for example, overly tight or short dress on a very large person. Otherwise if it is for comfort it is A-OK. :-)

  11. I like shorts but I no longer have the legs to wear them. Let me rephrase that, I have legs but they are pretty scared up with icky veins etc. :(
