Neon and Navy

As I've made it very clear, I have a love/hate relationship with my legs. I'm very fortunate that I'm healthy, but I wouldn't be opposed to trading up for say, Heidi Klums legs {seriously, she gets better with age}. 

Shorts are mine {and I have a feeling a lot of yours} worst enemy. Shorts are a working progress in my closet. I thought I would share some of my tips for how I work them into my wardrobe. 

1. Bronzer lotion: OK, not fashion related, but take all the help you can get!
2. Size up if necessary: Roll your eyes at me all you want, as my mom always told me, no one will see the tag. My size fit in these shorts, but by sizing up, they sat lower and more confortable on my hips and were slightly longer. Win-Win! 
3. Brights: Colors make people look at the shorts and not your legs. Another win! {Grin}
4. Flowy Top: By having a oversized, flowy top, you give the allusion that your legs are skinnier in proportion to your top. I was a doubter, but I've since given it a chance with much success.
5. Heels: I know this isn't always possible. But when you can, dress up your outfit with some heels, they make your legs look longer and leaner and make a great night outfit for going out. 

Good luck everyone and I will be the first one to let everyone know when leg transplants are available {I know, I know, I'm crazy}.

On another note...we are inching closer to 50 Google Followers...I might just have a giveaway up my sleeve once we hit it! {hint, hint!!} So tell your friends!
