|I am so courageous.|
|I swear to God, these were taffeta.|
|These leather pants from the Gap don't look half bad...|
|But they were the stiffest thing I've ever had on my body (THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!)|
|The tragedy of a small waistband.|
But I also found some really great stuff. Take these flowered jeans by Free People. They're the perfect height for me to wear during the summer – they hit just above the ankle straps on my favorite sandals. They'll also work great in the fall with boots.
|Love getting Free People for three bucks.|
I also found this great pair of burgundy corduroys. They're very soft and (if I do say so myself) they make my butt look fantastic.

But my absolute favorite find (and the one I was most nervous about) are these high-waisted shorts from Old Navy.
|I smell another pin-up shoot!|
When I was a kid, all of my clothes were Old Navy – I was a walking catalog. But by the time I got to college, I'd stopped shopping there altogether. I think the last time I went near one was to find a pair of jeans, and that didn't end so well. Still, I've always loved their denim, and these shorts are the best of my old and new style philosophies; they're comfortable as all get out, and they have a vintage flair that I can't resist.
|Yet another Gratuitous Picture of my Bottom.|
Normally, I'm a little allergic to shorts. They scare me, in away. Or rather, my bright white thighs scare me. But when it comes to my insecurities, I like to confront them head on and then ignore them. I like the shorts, so I'll wear them. And if anyone has a problem with my bright white thighs, they shove it up their shorts.
|Theirs won't be as cute as mine, though.|
