Every summer, like clockwork, my boyfriend and I have a fight. A stupid, asinine, ridiculous argument. An argument over what you may ask? Shorts. Yes, the fact that I don’t wear shorts is an issue of contention every time summer draws near. Yeah, I don’t understand it either.
I don’t like shorts on myself. Period. I don’t like how they creep up and I don’t like their tendency to travel (to put it delicately). I don’t like how often times, and length depending, they cut me off at the thickest part of my legs. Not flattering! Shorts also reveal the cursed cellulite, and as my friend was kind enough to point out in this annual debate, when you sit down shorts illustrate your thighs spreading out.
Awesome! Instead, I opt for figure flattering, and feminine dresses and skirts. They cover everything I would much rather conceal, while making me look pulled together. I see nothing wrong with this, but my boyfriend would prefer me in shorts. And not just shorts, “shorts with sneakers.” *cringes*
I subscribe to the “if it aint broke don’t fix it” logic. I am perfectly content with my dresses and skirts. I enjoy dressing up a little, and yet I’m really comfortable. Occasionally I mix it up with rompers, a shorts compromise, if you will. I love the look of shorts on other girls, those brave (tiny) souls. I have a lot of friends who don’t wear shorts, for a multitude of reasons, which leaves me curious…
So, dear readers, I have to ask. Help me put this issue to bed-finally. Do you wear shorts? How about shorts with sneakers? Or are you like me and prefer dresses and skirts in the warmer months?
