Shorts and I don’t really get along too well.
I’m always nervous about wearing shorts. Are they too long? Too short? Do they lay right? Bunch up? Do they give me a ‘you know what’??? <— Yep, you know what I’m talking about.
However, after I had my 3rd baby boy, I included a pair of lime shorts in my ‘Motivation Outfit‘. I was determined to fit into these shorts and not only did I reach my goal, but when I put them on (after working hard to get my body back), they didn’t fit!
That’s right! My lime shorts were too BIG; yippee! They needed to be returned for a smaller size!
When I went to return them, my size was sold out in lime but this color was available! And these little shorts prompted this outfit…
I loved that this outfit wasn’t ‘loud’ and I loved how feminine and lightweight the top is. Though I’m not wearing shoes in the above photo, that’s pretty much how I roll these days! Hanging around the house with my boys but dressed and ready to go out and about if need be!
MAMA TIP: If you get yourself ready in the early morning when the little ones are sleeping, you won’t have to think about yourself again! A pair of shorts, cute top, a couple of accessories and you’re good to go for whatever the day may bring!
