Here are my new shorts that I bought yesterday. I should have taken pictures at home so that they wouldn't have wrinkled on the drive. Today I'm wearing it with a black cotton tube top, print kimono cardigan and black wedge booties.
When I was younger and was a size 00/0, I wanted to be curvy. I had stayed that size from my freshman year in high school until I was in my mid-twenties. I guess you could call me a late bloomer. I wished that I was more curvy like Marilyn Monroe. I had envied all the girls I would see that had boobs, a tiny waist, and hips.
Today with this new curvier me I look back and think,"Be careful what you wish for, someone might be listening.". When I was younger I didn't have to worry about how things fit, I could just buy off the rack and never had to step into a dressing room. Now I have to worry about tops fitting right, adjusting my hoo hoos all the time, or holding them while I run hoping they don't fall out. My hips are wider, therefore I have to buy bigger bottoms or at least they need to have some stretch in it to fit right. Like today I wore the kimono because this outfit would have looked too risque for day time wear. The down fall of being short + curvy and wanting to be a little modest. Come to think of it I would not wear it without a cover up.
So the moral of the story- Sure I'm not the same girl I use to be, that's all apart of growing up and changing. There are always adjustments that need to be made in finding peace with what you have. Have I made peace? Today, yes for sure (:
