Short shorts

This is a first! I have NEVER worn shorts on my blog. The only time you would see me in shorts is when I am playing sport or doing exercise. I am not very confident with my legs. I am an athelet and I am a bit embarrassed showing my somewhat muscular legs (especially I do not have long legs at all lol).
I was inspired by so many beautiful bloggers with all diferent styles and body shapes this summer so I gathered my courage and put on this pair of animal print shorts I have owned for a while today.
Any advise or recommendation are welcome to help my muscular legs look longer and leaner :)

 H&M hat, Zara T-shirt
                         Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch (more colours here)
Born Rebecka Sandals (full grain brown on sale here) highly recommend them
Bracelet from PeaceLoveElephant (other buddha design here)
Love10 for 10% off
Shashi stackable bracelets (more designs here)
New sunnies by Lindberg (from Denmark, the best light weight high quality sunnies I've ever owned)
Paua shell necklace from a street vendor in Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands in my home town New Zealand :)

More hot weather is on the way! I probably will be back to wearing dress again lol.
Have a nice week!

I was reading the text before moving to the photos and wasn't sure what to expect. You look perfectly fine in shorts!

Your legs look just fine and you look great in shorts. You shouldn't be scared of wearing it. :)

Haha thanks very much for the vote of confidence my friend :)
I think my photographer knew which angle to take these shots to makey legs look more presentable too (phew). But at least I faced my phobia and stepped out in shorts! Maybe I will be more brave in the future :)

No way, it's definitely all in your head because you have KILLER legs!! You should be wearing short shorts and mini dresses all of the time! I know how you feel though, I never wear shorts and just started to this summer. I definitely think it's in our heads.

ohh love your hat and shorts:)

Kiwi Fashion Blog said...

Haha thanks Jenny for your kind words. I think it also depends on the cut and texture of the fabric of the shorts :)
I will try to experiment with different style hopefully get over some of my fashion phobia :)

I don't see a problem there! It's lovely. But if you wish your legs to look thinner, maybe instead of wedges you could try some high heels?
Tell me if it works.

Have a lovely week,
Manu Luize.
