Who Wears Short Shorts?

I dont.  I recently fell in love with a pair of overall shorts from Target.  They truly are so cute, and remind me of being a little kid again.  I bought them, knowing well that I'm completely insecure in shorts.  I have never worn any shorts other than basketball shorts out in public, mind you.  I thought "Oh, I'll tone my legs up, get a little sun on them, I'll be fiiine!"  I attempted to wear them today, and for the short amount of time that I had them on, I was constantly tugging at the bottom of them to make them longer.
I felt so silly, though!  I see so many of you pretty ladies pulling off shorts so well, and I want to try so badly.  But once I get them on, I feel naked.
So this post is dedicated to one of my biggest insecurities, my legs.  And my desire to let them be free.  By wearing shorts.

We'll see if I'm ever brave enough. :)
What are your biggest insecurities?  Have you ever tried to overcome them?

I'm the exact same way! I saw those very same overall shorts. I ALMOST bought them, then stopped myself because I'm crazy insecure about my thighs. =[

I have been trying to come out of my shell and show my arms a little more.
I'm never liked how my body looks, but it's time to forget the magazine covers and embrace my shape.

Jamie: I actually broke out of my shell and wore them the other day! They stretched out a bit after I had them on for a while, and the length wasn't so bad!

Sugarplum Kawaii: Aw, I'm sure you could pull off shorts better than I can!

Out on a limb: I couldn't agree more! We shouldn't worry about the girls in the media, there's so much more beauty in the world. Good for you!

CAPow!: I actually wore them the other day, and it wasn't that bad once I got used to it! I felt a little bare at first, but then I realized how nice free legs felt!

Juhee: But being a rugby player, I bet you've got the toned legs for it!
