Happy Wednesday Beautiful!!!
Summer is here and I couldn’t be happier!!! Everything that I want to do is to be somewhere on the beach or in the park and not in the office. Who are with me???
For me, the real first day of summer is the first day you can wear shorts:) Shorts are, to me, as much a part of the joy of summer as air conditioners and sprinklers, a symbol of a carefree season, the way summer always feels like the freedom of being let out of school, even when one hasn’t been a student in years.
As a kid and a teen, I never wore shorts even when everybody else did. I came from a very conservative family. Finally, in my late 20s, I started wearing them just in time for people to tell me that I was about to have to stop wearing them — that shorts, this clothing item I’d only just discovered as an adult, were only for kids, and not for adults.
Short shorts and cut-off shorts are always on the list of things that women over 30 or women over a certain weight are not supposed to wear. I understand: “rules are rules” and I understand that I am not in my 20’s, that’s why when I found this mid-rise bermuda shorts with side zip fastening, pleated details and matching bow at the waist – it was love from the first side. (even my conservative mother would say: “Buy it” 🙂 )
Let me know if you like it and let me know how you feel about wearing shorts?
