I finally bought a pair of distressed cut off shorts. It only took me a year to convince myself I wasn’t too old or fat to own a pair.
Here’s the back story: I tried on a pair of cut off shorts at Target last summer and wasn’t pleased with the look. Standing there in the mirror I was not happy with the look at all. It screamed “Teenage Love Affair,” and I had just turned 30 so I opted for boyfriend shorts instead.
Fast forward to June 2015. I decided for some odd reason to try on another pair of cut off shorts while shopping in Forever 21. I’m glad I did. I was happy with the results. The fit of the Distressed Denim Cutoffs was much better and I didn’t feel fat. The shorts are still extremely short and I have legs for days so I constantly get stares, but so what?
I love the wash of the jeans and the distressed effect. I originally planned on wearing the shorts with a long vest, but I decided to go festival chic for the Rochester Jazz Festival. It was more cute and comfy but you see my effort.
Ladies of a particularly age group (30 +) were you hesitant about buying a pair of cut off shorts? Tell me in the comments.
