I had so much fun taking these pictures with my friend Kerry! He’s an amazingly talented fire performer based here in Burlington ( his photography skills are pretty terrific too)!* Playing in muddy, wet, spring weather always makes me feel like a little kid again. Vermont is starting to thaw out and even though we woke up with a dusting of snow this morning I think Spring is here to stay!
When I bought this shirt at Downtown Threads I assumed (due to the cut and style) that the scenes on the shirt were western ones… as you can see from the image above I was wrong. The shirt is covered in scenes from a polo match! I didn’t try this gem on while I was in the store so imagine my surprise when I got it home and tried it only to realize that this shirt was handmade and fit me like a dream! I love when things work out that way!
I just realized this is the second time I’m wearing shorts this week! I’m making strides toward conquering my shorts phobia; the next step… shorts without tights. I think I’m hesitant to wear shorts with bare legs becuase I’m extremely self conscious about my thighs. For some reason I just can’t get past the idea of my big ole white thighs being out there for all to see.
That being said sometimes all it takes is finding the perfect piece of clothing to make you realize what you’ve been missing out on all along. So here’s hoping that the perfect pair of shorts (preferably lace with scalloped edges) is out there somewhere waiting for me to find them!
What trends were you hesitant to try at first but love now? What’s your idea of the perfect pair of shorts for this spring/summer?
