What I wore on my second day in Vancouver to go to the beach, do some impromptu shopping, and get caught in the rain.
Dress - thrifted, size 1X
Cardigan - Alloy, size XXXL
Scarf - borrowed from my sister, from Le Chateau I believe
Bike shorts - American Apparel, women's size L
Flip-flops - Old Navy size 11
These shorts are great. My hips/but/thighs are a size 20-22 and I'm fitting into a size large. They're snug, sure, but very comfortable. I've been meaning to get shorts to wear under dresses for ages, but didn't want to deal with ordering on line or driving around the city. I was pleased to walk 2 blocks to American Apparel and find exactly what I was looking for. They prevent chub rub and help me feel a bit more comfortable and modest in dresses. Modesty is a problematic concept, yes, but I don't want to be showing my undies to strangers. They're also 95% cotton, which I love.
