Seriously… If I could live out the rest of my days without wearing pants and not have anyone look sideways at me — I would. Also winter. Winter would suck, but whatever.
Honestly… I’m not even joking. I love being pantless. It’s a problem.
Now, technically this fantastic little number from the insanely cool Nadia Aboulhosn collection for Boohoo, is a dress… Just not much of one on me.
You see, when you factor in my 5’8″ish frame, long torso, and ample derrière, it’s kind of a triple threat — the ultimate weapon in the war on dress length (not really a thing, at least once you leave catholic high school and if plaid skirts count).
But I was determined to wear this little piece of perfection the way Nadia Aboulhosn and her adorably short torso had intended — AKA, in my case, pretty much show the entire neighbourhood the bottom of mah butt cheeks!!! Yeahhhhhh!!!

I wear short shorts! I DO!!!
Before buying these adorable printed shorts from Forever 21+, I hadn’t worn a pair since gym class in my early teens. I had long believed, been told, and heard said that they were reserved for thin legged, gap-thighed ladies with no cellulite – that a girl like me had no business subjecting anyone to such a sight. But lately I’ve been feeling inspired. I’ve been seeing more and more voluptuous, curvy, plus size ladies breaking through society’s beauty barriers and rocking short shorts confidently, and I just had to try and get in on some of the action!
I have to say, it was not the easiest task… When you’re fat, your thighs tend to rub together while you walk and things can get a bit tricky. Wearing my shorts wasn’t as simple as I would have liked, but I found, once I stopped trying to pull them down constantly and gave into their short short length, the bunching at the crotch stopped being an issue. To my absolute joy (and moderate disbelief) I was actually able to wear them without looking like I had a banana in my pocket!!! (Or was I just happy to see you?)
But in case, due to body type or style, your shorts refuse to cooperate, there exists, a product called NoRiders, which I am now dying to try! The product consists of iron on and sew in strips for your inseam, which are apparently very effective at preventing shorts from riding up at the crotch. I will definitely be letting you know how they work out once I’ve gotten my hands on some!
Anyway, all fat girl, thigh rubbing, crotch riding (sounds like some new painful Olympic demo sport) aside, I felt amazing in my new shorts! I paired them with this great boohoo.com black, oversized t-shirt dress, (seen in cream color and styled differently in my older post “Winter Is Coming, And Coming… And Coming“) belted at the waist, and accessories like this beautiful statement ring from Forever 21, my favorite black turban from BABOOSHKA, and these amazing, inexpensive black and gold sandals from Walmart, to create the perfect boho-chic, summer look that works for anything from a day at the park chasing after the kiddies to a sun-filled afternoon on the lido deck with your glorious, dimpled upper thighs proudly on display, letting everyone know that you have the right to be cool and comfortable in the heat too!!!
We’ve all got at least one, right, ladies? Haters. In life, there will always be those people who just can’t handle your success, your desirability and your confidence; and there’s only one thing we can really say to them:
YOU’RE JUST JEALOUS
And that’s what it all boils down to – jealousy. They want what you’ve got and hate you for having it. But here’s a little reminder; and I am quoting myself on this one… Be kind to your haters, ladies!!! They’re just feeling threatened, and I can only imagine why! A sexy, confident woman can be a very scary thing to a person who is feeling inferior. The best thing you can do is to help them learn to love themselves. Their fear only exists because they think they aren’t as beautiful, as important, or worthy as you are, of being loved.
So, today, in honor of my haters, (they know who they are, even if I don’t) I am rocking this awesomely honest, graphic tee from Forever 21+, super comfy, black cotton leggings from Addition Elle, and these fab clear boots from boohoo.com that I’ve been unhealthily obsessing over for a while now.
And in parting, I will leave you with these final words of wisdom:
