Truth be told, I haven’t been a fan of shorts for many years. It’s always surprising to see other people out and about with perfectly tanned legs and knees and shins free of bruises. Certainly not the case for this girl! Shorts just fail to make me feel comfortable. It sounds so silly but for the last several years, they have made me feel exposed. While it “shouldn’t” bother me and I need to learn to embrace my body more, reality is that shorts cause me to feel insecure. My family always teasing me because it will be 92 degrees out and here I come wearing my jeans. Well, this summer I have been making an effort to try and find bottoms options that are more “summery”. Enter the wide leg trouser…hands-down my favorite find. There are so many adorable options currently, most of which are available in soft and light fabrics…both patterned and solid.
On a recent trip to Anthropologie, these slit-leg pants made their way into the fitting room on a whim. I had already made up my mind that they wouldn’t be flattering on my body type but was pleasantly surprised by how they looked. Not only that, but they are unbelievably comfortable. Honestly, it feels like you are wearing pajamas bottoms around. I just found a similar pair and ordered them this morning…that’s how much I LOVE this style.
