These striped seersucker shorts have been lounging in my shorts drawer all summer and I had forgotten all about them! I bought them out of season and didn't have them on my radar until today. They are comfy and aren't too short which is my #1 reason for purchasing. (Some of you already know how I feel about shorter shorts!)
I had to drop off some paperwork at a couple of offices and didn't want to look too casual so I paired the shorts with my fave yellow polka jacket and a men's v-neck tee. I figured I would just grab the jacket when it was time for me to go into the office buildings, it was 84 degrees outside at 9 am so I couldn't reasonably wear it around all day unless I was going to be inside.
I really enjoy these two pieces together, I also have some wide leg seersucker pants that I can pair with this jacket for the same look. There was a time when I never would have thought to put the two together but I am motivated to think outside the box in the last four or five years.
I believe a huge part of my change in thinking was deciding to go natural, you can't be a conformist with this hair! In the simplest outfit my coif sets me apart from the crowd, I can be surrounded by a sea of natural haired women yet each person's hair is distinctive and inimitable.
The older I get, the more comfortable I am in my own skin. I've said that growing up I just wanted to be like everyone else and now as an adult, I value my unique-ness. Weird, eh?
