Wearing History sailor play suit. Although I haven't worn shorts in public since I was about 10, I really like these. They are high waist, wide leg and very comfortable. I admit, I was terrified of wearing shorts in public. A too-short skirt that reveals my knees makes me feel strange but once I got out in the world (and no one pointed and laughed) I felt pretty good! I may have to make a few more pairs before next summer.
The 4th was so much fun. Olivia got to hold her first sparklers and my sister and I felt pretty hard core pinching snap n' pops in our fingers. Oh yeah!
