Question: What do shorts and Waldo have in common?
Answer: This dress is the closest you’ll find to either of those things in my closet.
Yeah, it’s true. I’ve struggled for years with shorts. I’ve tried different lengths, different styles, different materials, different styling of different styles, and after years of returning 99% of the pairs I’ve tried, I’ve finally come to a conclusion.
I. Hate. Shorts.
Even during years when I have a pair or two in my closet that fit fine and look fine, they never end up making it onto my body. Even when I totally admire and love them on other people (two prime examples here and here), I never feel compelled to attempt them myself. So I’ve made the executive decision (CEO of my closet, right here) to stop wasting my time and energy on trying to make them work for me.
And you know what? I am 110% at peace with that decision. Mostly because that means I have more time, energy, and money for cute summery dresses (especially if they’re one pop pop bedecked hat away from an excellent Where’s Waldo costume). And with the right application of sporty shoes and cute jewelry, dresses can be just as casual as shorts. Win/win!
