I left the house in my short denim shorts (the shorts I wore for a £30 bet) but while I was walking I felt uncomfortable. I went and bought some new casual jeans and changed while in the shop.
I decided that the shorts had become a badge of honour for me. I'd been scared of wearing them, and I like to challenge my fears if I know they're silly. Yet, walking down the street in them, I didn't feel good. I decided that I had proved to myself I could wear them, but that I didn't need to.
I'd only worn them as they were a quick outfit choice (I was using them as a casual jean choice), but I felt uncomfortable - so hardly casual!
I used that uncomfortable feeling to go and buy some actual casual jeans. I won't be wearing the shorts again.
