I Was Right There Beside Him All Summer Long And Then The Time We Woke Up To Find That Summer Gone…

Poor Little It Girl - Summer Shorts - @poorlilitgirl

I don’t typically wear shorts. I know it’s dumb, but I really hate my knees/thighs (whatever…we all have our own insecurities), but sometimes, it’s just too damn hot to wear anything but shorts. While I have my go-to pair of cut-offs that I throw on to run errands in the neighborhood, I was really looking for a pair that felt more “dressy’ then denim. And y’all, if you have not tried Lilly Pulitzer shorts you are missing out! I picked these up for our big blogger Outer Banks trip a couple months ago, and they are just too good! They have a longer inseam so I don’t feel like I’m showing off too much (I’m too old to be wearing shorts that go up my butt and have the pockets hanging out the bottom…I acknowledge that as a 31 year old woman), but aren’t too long that they don’t work on my petite/short frame. So I guess I’m glad that I got over my body issues, at least for the dog days of summer, and embrace the short (but not too short) shorts and rock them with total confidence. Sometimes it’s hard to accept what you view are flaws in yourself, but the older I get, the more comfortable I feel in my own skin, which is always a good thing. Now the next challenge is deciding what pair to get next? I’m thinking this metallic stripe pair is perfect, what do you think?

    I think you have very cute legs I know its hard to love them though — I bruise with the slightest bump because of blood thinners but tell myself I am grateful to have them! Thanks for reminding me that we all have our issues.
