Ok girls, I ventured out of my comfort zone and tried on the cheeky’s, aka booty shorts!
It seems this summer is all about skin. With belly exposing blouses, bandeau’s are now acceptable as a top, and the shorts are borderline underwear.
One thing to keep in mind about this seasons trend is just because it’s a fashion trend does not mean you should wear it! I’m a fairly fit woman of about 5’4″, 118 pounds and I’m telling you I wouldn’t be caught dead in some of these shorts. I almost felt depressed after some of the stores I visited – either because they failed to put up the skinny mirror or just because I really do hate my thighs.
Anyhow this isn’t about weight or being fit this is about fashion. I only want to point out that you shouldn’t feel bad if you don’t look like a 12 year old wearing some this season styles. And please don’t force it! Flattering clothing is always in style
So I was brave enough to take some photos of myself wearing some cool summer gear at one of my favorite stores, Urban Outfitters
