SHORTS WEATHER


This time last week we were all living for the sun and getting some much needed Vitamin D. I love how the sun just seems to make everyone happier and more motivated, myself included. I decided to push myself way out of my comfort zone last bank holiday. For the first time in my life I wore a pair of shorts and I'm pretty proud of myself.


I guarantee over 90% of us have a physical insecurity that we are pretty self conscious about. Well, for me it has always been my thighs. I don't know when or why it started I just always felt they were... huge. They were often referred to as "thunder thighs" as I was growing up so I don't think that helped with the whole confidence thing either. I used to hate them, sometimes I still do! It used to effect the way I dressed a lot - I never wore skinny or tight trousers and shorts were completely out of the question! I tried to cover them up as much as possible because I was so embarrassed and self conscious about them. I have only ever owned five pairs of denim shorts and I have never worn them outside of my own house or even outside of my bedroom. I've put them on, stared and criticised the way my thighs look in them and then taken them off feeling even worse about my insecurity than ever before! However, with the weather being so freaking warm last weekend and me only really wearing the world's worst colour in the sun - black, I decided to be brave and try on a pair of shorts I found screwed up at the back of my wardrobe and... I didn't hate them?!

Choosing to style these shorts in a way that I was extremely comfortable with helped a ton! I am very confident with my personal style and dressing in an alternative / gothic way, so this took some of the self doubt away. Whilst, I was not ready to go 100% bare legged yet, pairing them with a pair of fishnets helped me feel way more comfortable in a pair of shorts. I never thought that having tattoos would help my confidence and ease my self doubt like they have. One of the main reasons I felt kind of okay in shorts was because you could see my tattoo and for the first time, that was what my eyes and thoughts went to first, instead of me criticising and scrutinising the way my thighs looked. I have come such a long way since I started blogging in terms of my confidence and I feel hella good about how I look in these photos and that feels like the biggest achievement for me. I finally feel like I'm not only beginning to accept my body but to feel proud of it and be a little bit more body confident and body positive! Feeling positive about the body you have, learning to accept the parts you might not always like, because we all have them and accept these is a pretty rad feeling.

I freaking love this outfit and feel hella confident in it, which is definitely a first that I have been waiting so long for! As summer and festival season approaches I have a feeling shorts will definitely be an item I consider wearing more than ever before. This is the summer of legs!

  2. Your thighs are sublime! I'm so happy you found a way to love a part of your body you're insecure about but I speak the truth, your legs are stunning.
