The Outfit I Don't Like


 
If Angel had his way, this is how the both of us would dress all summer long, or, rather, all year long, if the weather permitted. His ideal uniform has always been a t-shirt and shorts, and he likes to see me wearing the girl version of the same thing.

As you perhaps can tell based on all the other outfits I've ever posted, this is not my ideal outfit. At all. I'd happily wear all manner and color and pattern of jeans and capris and dresses all year round, and never give a thought to: "Man, I really want to wear some shorts right now."

I never wore shorts until after I got married, and to this day, I will wear them occasionally, but only because Angel bought them for me and he likes me to wear them.

I can tell just from looking at these pictures how uncomfortable I felt wearing them, but, hey, we were on a date to play mini-golf at an abandoned golf course in the middle of a school day and it was pushing 90 degrees outside. That was also the same day that we discovered that the air conditioner in my car does not currently work. If there were ever a day to wear shorts, it was that day.

Now I'll spend the rest of the summer wearing dresses and I'll also see if I can get Angel to wear my favorite outfit for him one of these days. (it involves jeans and a button-up shirt--it will be a chilly, rainy summer day before the boy who wear shorts outdoors in winter can be convinced to dress like that).

P.S. It might already be obvious, based on my skin color, but I refuse to tan. I've never been to a tanning bed in my life. I've occasionally sunned myself by a pool, but mostly because the warm sun and a good book seemed altogether more attractive than cold water and being splashed by younger siblings. Just letting you know, I will continue to be pale all summer long, and I will make no apologies. Skin cancer doesn't sound fun to me. And besides, I think Angel's tan enough for the both of us.

P.P.S There's still plenty of time to enter my giveaway! Win deodorant, and Target money. Classic combination, I'd say.

  1. You look super cute, even if you weren't comfortable. I need to buy more dresses. I've been leaning more toward dresses over shorts these days. They're much more airy.

  4. I don't tan either, ever! :) I also dislike shorts. I just feel awkward and I feel more attractive and feminine in a skirt :P

  5. I applaud you for not tanning. I regret all the tanning I did when I was young. You will be happy you avoided it later in life...trust me.

  7. I'm not all that comfortable in shorts either, thought I bought some 7" inseam ones online this year hoping I'll like them better, so we'll see. I'm also pale all summer long!

  13. Ahh you look adorable! I will not, cannot wear shorts ... ever. Between 6 kids and the fact that my legs make you look uber-tan! My husband wears shorts in the winter as well, while I'm in a parka! And you pulled off your discomfort splendidly. I can't tell at all :)

  14. Boo tanning. I'm right there with you on the pale scale, except the moment I get sunlight I get freckels. There's no point in tanning when you're just going to end up white anyway. I rock a few bermuda shorts in the summer when it's real hot.

  16. what, YOU LOOK AMAZING. your teeny tiny waist, and your long legs - I think you look fantastic in those shorts.

    plus don't feel any pressure to tan - you'll be laughing when you are wrinkle free and everyone else looks all leathery. not a cute look!
