As much as I love dressing up, trying out different styles, mixing and matching, sometimes it feels good to just strip down (not literally) to the bare minimum and sport jeans and a tee.
I love seeing celebs dressed for the red carpet, but even more I enjoy seeing them dressed down for their everyday life (as everyday as it can be!) in jeans and a tee, even more specifically, jean shorts and a plain white tee.
I am typically not a shorts person. Dresses to the knee, yes, even skirts (sometimes), but shorts? Never. I have terrible cellulite not only on the back, but also the front of my legs, and I feel like shorts have always emphasized it. I have always thought that my legs, particularly my thighs are just not meant for shorts.
But last summer, and this summer, the heat is just too.much. I decided I just didn’t care about how much cellulite I have, or how it looks in shorts! Honestly, it’s just too hot to care. Too hot to care
Now once I got past my insecurities, or at least ignored them enough, the problem was finding shorts that were long enough so my cheeks don’t hang out, but not too long that I might as well be wearing pants (bermuda shorts-can’t stand them).
Believe it or not for this 34 year Mommy of two, I found really great shorts at American Eagle. I knew I wanted distressed shorts- I feel like non distressed denim shorts really make me look like a Mom. (I know I am a mom, its just my weird mind haha).
American Eagle had the perfect distressed shorts at the right length for me. I ended up with the Tomgirl Midi Shorts and just their basic Midi Shorts. I sized up in both of them because I prefer a looser fit when I am wearing denim shorts!
Total side note, when I was editing these pictures, I would be lying if I said it didn’t cross my mind to airbrush my cellulite on my legs. But then I decided I didn’t care- I really don’t. It’s me, it’s who I am, it’s how I look! Trying to embrace every last dimple!
