One fine summer morning I stepped out to perfectly calm weather. As the day progressed the wind picked up. By noon I didn't have enough hands to keep my skirt held down for 360 degree coverage and I still had a very long trek home. I darted into the nearest shop, which happened to be junior's clothing. I grabbed the only pair of shorts I could find (size XL was the nearest to an adult size available), paid and walked back to the dressing room. They were on clearance for just over $6 and I put them on knowing they would do their job today and keep my under-carriage covered and then I would never wear them again.
Maybe it was the unhappy circumstances in which I bought them, but I kind of hated them at first. The material was thin, there's a big bow on the front. I felt a little too old to wear them and they just didn't interest me. But, I kept them. The more I looked at them, the more potential I saw. So, I started to experiment.
Dressy shorts? I never would have gone for them, but I'm so glad I kept trying. These simple shorts have become one of my favorite pieces and the low price made trying something new a worry-free endeavor.
