{ Shorts Bravery }

So, I’m pretty sure that this is the first time since I was 13 that I put on a pair of shorts in public!! It’s just not my thing! We all have our hang ups and insecurities. I’m only 5’1″ tall and my soccer legs are one of mine! However, like most women, I’m working on being confident, comfortable and brave in my own skin. Really desiring to be grateful and happy with the way God made me!!

Anywhoo! About this majorly cute outfit! (I’m a fan at least!). This top was one of my first purchases out here in California, at what has grown to be my favorite consignment/ thrift shop. I love lace and anything with netting. These shorts were purchased at the same place, but given to me by a friend. I love the detail and the fabric is quality! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you know that I’m all about attempting to look like a million dollars but paying wayyy less!!

I hope your first week of spring has been great and hopefully warming up for those of you on the East Coast!!

I would like to leave you with this scripture that has been blessing me this past week.

“For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭38-39‬ AMP)

Have a great rest of your week!!!!

Ruthie xoxo

    I’m sure you’ll be flooded with comments similar to this first one pretty soon, but Ruthie… Your legs are absolutely gorgeous!!! It still baffles me how many things we subjectively see as flawed on our own bodies, but others view as perfect! It also causes me to be braver in my own skin and ignore my silly hangups, especially when my husband is there to champion and cheer me on. Thanks for the post. And please, keep wearing those shorts that show off your hot legs! <3 Love and hugs!

      You are SO right April!! My husband does the same. This post has made me realize how my view is skewed. God has done a good thing and I need to recognize that and be thankful!!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Love you girl!! ?

    Ruthie you are my absolute lifespiration – it is nothing but a blessing in my life that I was given strong women like you to look up to. Not everyone is so lucky.
