I purchased these shorts on a whim one day shopping at Marshall’s on my lunch break. I figured eventually I would have the guts to wear them out the house. If not then they would just be a cute pair of shorts I would wear to the beach. Well, one Friday night I threw them on to hang out with Jeanee. No sooner did I walk out my apt I turned right back around and changed my clothes.
Well, this past weekend my confidence was really at a 100% because I put these shorts on and didn’t think twice about wearing them to the Paint Me LUSH event. Are my thighs perfectly? Nope! Did I care? Nope. I realized I was in my own head about what I thought my thighs should look like instead of loving where I am right now. I have always been that girl that hides her legs. I seriously have to be feeling my bestest (yes that’s a word) to wear anything exposing this much leg unless I’m at the beach.
I have thick thighs and they aren’t going anywhere. I don’t have a thigh gap and probably never will. I sometimes have to shimmy back and forth to get my skinny jeans on. However, these thighs can squat 185lbs unassisted. These thighs helped me run a 5k last year. Oh and these thighs look amazing when I put on a bodycon dress!
Instead of being my own worse critic, sometimes I have to tell myself that I am overthinking a situation.
Ladies, what’s the one item in your closet you’ve purchased but sworn you’d never wear out the house?
