Jean shorts... how to wear them with confidence and comfort!
Every since I have had my two babies I have had a difficult time feeling comfortable in my own skin. Short of wearing mumus, I usually wear things pretty loose fitting. One of the things I hate the most is jeans. They always felt tight, uncomfortable, and stiff.
As the trend of jean shorts began to come out I wished so badly that I could wear them confidently. I tried so many different jean shorts and just hated the way I looked in them. Seriously, the amount of times I bought and returned jean shorts was so ridiculous.
It wasn't until I returned probably my 20th pair of jean shorts that I realized I was so focused on the size I was buying that I wasn't even looking for a pair that FIT ME. Rather than buying jean shorts that actually fit I would obsess over the number inside of the jeans and I would not buy any jeans bigger than a number I mentally felt comfortable with. How silly is that? Who but me would even KNOW that number? Even as I lost weight after my first child, my body just wasn't going to be the same. (I mean I carried a child for 9 months for goodness sake!)
Once I finally moved on from my brain focusing on that size number and finally purchased a size that fit me, I realized that I really enjoyed wearing these shorts! First off, when the waist actually fits you that takes the comfort level up a whole bunch of notches. I realized that I could actually move (and breathe) in jean shorts when wearing my correct size. Styling the jeans to my liking is also something that really helped me to feel confident and comfortable in my brand new jean shorts. Here are 3 ways that I felt AMAZING in my jeans shorts.
