short stuff

Yesterday's post was deep, yo.
Thank you all so much for your sweet comments and understanding and relating and general awesomeness.
Don't ever change.
Remember when you used to write that in people's high school yearbooks?
Those were the days.
Speaking of days. They are numbered for the summer.
Whaddup, August?!
And speaking of August - my niece should be born any day now and Shawn and I's 3-year anniversary is in 7 days!
Did you know that the traditional anniversary gift for the third year is leather?
Well, Shawn does and he's trying to convince me to let him buy a leather couch for our basement.
I don't think I mentioned it here, but when he sets his mind on something he wants it RIGHT NOW.
So every day this week since Saturday or Sunday, I've been hearing about this couch.
He told me today that it's fate that it's our third anniversary and he's found us the perfect leather couch.
You all know we're going to end up with this couch, right?
I am weak.

Anyway, remember when I showed off my love for colored shorts here?
Well, I'm linking up with Lindsey @ The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday to show you all how I've been wearing my colored shorts this summer.

If you follow me on Instagram {and if you don't, you should. Duh! @hritter18}, you've gotten some peeks at these outfits:

I have to admit that the yellow shorts are my favorite.
I wear them almost every weekend, even if it's just for a little bit.
They are amazeballs. Just the perfect amount of fraying and so comfortable.
I wasn't a huge fan of shorts for many years, but I'm glad I embraced them this summer. And my cellulite.
I'm serious.
I've let my negative attitude toward my thighs keep me from wearing shorts.
But this summer, I let it all hang out.
At some point, you just have to accept your body for what it is. Or do the work to change it. And this summer I didn't make the time to change it, so I embraced it.
Go me!

I love those shorts! I just bought some yellow, hot pink, cobalt blue, and white ones when Jcrew was having an extra sale on their sale items. I can't wait to get into them once I drop the post-baby weight after October! Blah. Luckily living in Miami means I can wear them pretty much all year, so I have time. ;)

I have to admit, I don't own any colored shorts. I'm in shorts hatred mode this summer bc I need to loose some weight!

I am however obsessed with plaid shorts/capris!

Katie said...

I love those yellow shorts!!! I use to not wear shorts either. I hated summers bc I was always in pants or capris. I hate my legs and have for years. I'm slowly getting rid of why I hate them and branching out to wearing shorts again!!! It's been years.

Haha! Our third anniversary is in the beginning of September and I told my husband that there's a bag I've been eye I've been eyeing that is leather, just like the traditional third wedding anniversary gift! He (jokingly) suggested a whip. lol

OH MY Gosh, M is the same way, when he wants something he talks about it until he gets it, and I always cave, always.

I do not own any shorts, they look horrible on me cuz my legs are short and squatty because my torso is so long it just makes me look way fat.
