Friday was an excellent day for yarn-bombing, eating ice cream, and wearing incredibly short shorts. Kitty and I found a naked pole near the end of the main drag that needed some sprucing up. We got a bit conceptual (ha, yah, not so much) and decided that the top section represents the Summer weather we should be having, the middle doesn't know what it's doing, and the bottom is already anticipating Fall-like weather. Not the most optimistic view, but we're realists.
Afterwards we grabbed Silas from the park (where he'd been socializing and playing, as our yarn bombing was very boring to him) and went over to Elevated to grab some ice cream. Between the three of us we consumed the following flavors: cardamom, pistachio, mango & triple-citrus italian ice, coffee, and dutch malt. It was kind of amazing. There were jimmies involved.
My shorts were indeed short. It's actually a romper that I'm wearing - I bought it online in 2010, tried it on and when it didn't immediately work like I wanted it to, I threw it back in the bag and up onto a high shelf in the closet it went (it was a clearance item and couldn't be returned).
It's things like this romper that make it obvious to me how my relationship with my body has changed. The ways in which it "didn't work" two years ago aren't things that are magically different now, I just view them differently.
With a few minor alterations, it became exactly what I wanted it to be and I don't mind that it hugs my tummy and that you can see Visible Belly Outline. Basically, I just had to shorten up the straps so that it wasn't so low-cut that my bra was hanging out, and the shorts didn't have the shape I wanted, so I hemmed them up with elastic in the band to create a shape more like bloomers. It was fairly simple, I just needed to step back from the garment for awhile, come to terms with my shape (ROUND), and have the patience to tweak the piece into what I wanted.
