I haven’t worn non-athletic shorts since my age was in the single digits due to my German heritage and stocky lower body. I am not overweight by any means; I just have thighs that love to accumulate muscle and that cupcake I ate yesterday! It would expand my summer wardrobe so much if I had some shorts to pair with all my cute tanks. At this point I’ve stopped even trying shorts on in stores because it can just be a dreadful experience, so having some pointers on the best stores to try could help me out a ton. –Short on Shorts
I totally feel you on this. The short-shorts and skinny jeans trends have not been particularly kind to those of us with larger thighs. Finding a style that actually fits is difficult; finding a pair that doesn’t resemble sausage casing is nearly impossible. The key word, though, is nearly.

I get easily intimidated by Martha Stewart’s craft projects, because Martha is a crafting goddess and I definitely fall into the “crafting mortal” category. That being said, these fabric flower rings look genuinely easy to make (as long as you’re confident with a hot glue gun), and I love the result: so dainty and pretty. Martha recommends giving them out to your bridesmaids. Personally? I’ll be making a full bouquet to wear myself. [Martha Stewart]

Miley Cyrus emerged from her Miami hotel yesterday wearing a button-up shirt that barely covered her chocha–er, I mean vagina. Other pictures revealed that she was indeed wearing shorts underneath, and although her hotel stay with her male friend Cheyne has been raising eyebrows, Miley insisted it was totally innocent, tweeting, “So now because I am engaged I can’t have a friend of the opposite sex?” Pants or no pants, we love Miley more and more each day.
