Get the look: Skorts!

Sunday, November 3, 2013

This week, for the first time in about a year and a half, I dared to bare my legs. During my second pregnancy I had some really awful veins come up leaving me too self conscious to wear above the knee skirts, shorts or dresses. I know there may be some who think this is vain (pardon the pun) but combined with the many changes our bodies go through when baring children, I just couldn't bare the thought of looking at them let alone letting others see them. I wouldn't even wear shorts around the house. Silly I know but we all have our own hangs ups don't we?! One cannot undergo treatment whilst pregnant or breastfeeding so it was only eight weeks ago that I was finally able to have them tended too. I was informed they get a lot worse before they get better (the treatment clots the veins and leaves them very bruised and lumpy) and I was warned it could take up to six months to heal completely. I still have mild bruising and a few little lumps BUT here I am just eight weeks later feeling very free in my new skorts! :)
