These floral shorts are growing on me. 😉
I’ve worn a lot of things on this blog from rompers to brightly colored lipstick so why would a simple pair of floral shorts push me outside my comfort zone? It has a little (or a lot) to do with their length. Short shorts are scary, y’all!
The ones in this post were recently thrifted after I saw Nicole of Writes Like a Girl rock the most amazing high waisted version. I wanted a little bit of that awesome-ness for myself so here’s how I made them work for me!
Who knows where these shorts are supposed to sit on my waist so I just made up a place and tucked in a brightly colored blouse to make the whole thing look normal.
I still felt a little uncomfortable with how short they are (albeit lightweight which is so essential for hot days!) so I accessorized them with a gifted red purse, sparkly earrings, and these Lulus sandals which are quickly becoming a mainstay in my summer wardrobe.
Having a few things that make me feel great helped to outweigh the feeling of being uncomfortable. It’s a great trick!
Here are a few more tips for getting outside of your clothing comfort zone:
- Come up with lots of different outfits for your difficult item and then take mirror selfies of those outfits. Look at how cute you are!
- Wear the item around your house until you feel better in them.
- Wear the item out for quick errands.
- Finally, wear the item anywhere and just don’t care! You can do anything!
These shorts are still only on step 3 but I’m sure I’ll be at the “don’t care” stage very soon. How do you deal with clothes outside your comfort zone? Let me know in the comments below!
