This probably won't mean anything to anyone who isn't me, but I am wearing shorts again! Not counting wearing Norts to the gym, I haven't worn shorts in two years. The last time I felt comfortable wearing shorts out, as in out to dinner or something, was when I first met Nick in 2011.
Last summer I couldn't wear any of my shorts because I put on weight and they didn't fit. I had one pair of shorts I bought that were J Crew chinos and they were too big and incredibly unflattering. They made me look bigger than I was. I usually like J Crew, but these were the ugliest shorts known to man. Nick knows nothing about fashion and he said they made him think of a man's shorts.
Recently I went to Express and got two pairs of smaller shorts and I cannot wait to wear them! I also finally got up the nerve to wear white shorts again. I had been afraid I was too big to wear white shorts. The last pair of white shorts I owned met a very unfortunate end on my friend Stacy's wedding night. It involved us laying on the bed in her hotel while her husband and Nick goofed off with some other guys, and stuffing our faces with chocolate covered strawberries. At least it was my shorts that were stained and not her wedding dress.
Overall I am down about 7/8 pounds and I plan on keeping it up.
I think my shorts big debut might be this weekend.
What do you ladies wear with shorts when you go out?


  1. A cute pair of wedges and a nice top!
    Fran, I don't know what you are talking about because you have always looked great, but congratulations on the weight loss! That's awesome :-)

  2. I'm so happy for you to be trying shorts again! This seems like a big deal and standing up to it is incredible. Make sure you wear a smile with those shorts, one that goes ear to ear!!
