Goodbye, Comfort Zone!

I wore shorts in public today! šŸ˜²

I mean...it was only to run into Dunkin to pick up an iced coffee...but still.

Now I understand that this may not be a big deal to some. However...I literally haven't worn shorts in public since I was in college. That was over twenty years ago.

I never wear shorts out of the house because of my big thighs. I've always felt like shorts really accentuate the negative in this case (I've tried Bermuda shorts, but because I'm so short, they look like ill-fitting capris on me). As I get older, though...I think I'm starting to focus more on how clothes feel...and how I think they look on me, as opposed to how others think they look on me. They weren't super tight shorts or booty shorts. They were perfectly decent relaxed fit shorts that fell to about mid-thigh. I see plus size women wearing similar bottoms all the time and think they look totally fine...so why can't they look totally fine on me..? šŸ¤·šŸ»ā€ā™€ļø

But wait: That's not all! I wore an actual tank top with these shorts! As I've shared before, I never wear tank tops without some sort of a cover because I'm so bothered by my large upper arms. Today, however, I thought, "Hey...why not..?" We're experiencing record high temps up here in New England (again! šŸ„µ), so why shouldn't I dress for comfort..? I had to think about it for a little while before I took the plunge - but I did it!

To all of my fellow plus size ladies who are comfortable enough in their beautiful bodies to wear shorts and/or tanks all the time - I envy you...I'm proud of you...and I want to be like you! šŸ‘šŸ»

Enjoy the rest of the summer! šŸ˜Ž
