It's vez' ithanga season and who am I to deviate?

I bought and wore these shorts in the summer of 2016/2017. They came as bermudaswgich weren't too offensive but were not my style either. I bought the biggest size in the hopes that they would be sufficiently baggy and I would then DIY them to my satisfaction. I tried them on at home and, as usual, was disappointed. I don't know what happenef but I wore it a couple of times that summer in its ugly bermuda state. Then eventually one day, I took scissors to it. I didn't even put it on after to see. I threw it at the back of my wardrobe and forgot about it.

Shorts: Jet (Altered), Vest: Thrifted, Dress: Style Republic, Shoes: Jet
When I put back on again, the snugglier fit is the one thing to say it has been two summers. I like the imperfection of these DIY shorts (the skewed hem). Overall, I like the length and how the shorts sit on me overall.

That they exist, as in I had to cut something I bought to get here, is a testament to the fact that I'd never find them in store. I think the original bermuda shorts themselves cost, maybe, R170 (the same price as my favourite jeans). 

Was excited to be playing around with the Style Republic shirt dress again but in a different season. If you remember, I styled it in different for winter. But I think it really shines as a duster of sorts. This outfit is quintessentially summer. I could be going to a picnic or small live performance in a park or lazing around with my friends doing depression shit. It's perfect for all activities and ticks two great boxes: Belly and thighs out.

To my fellow fats: What kind of shorts do you really wish were made available in your size every summer or this summer?
