We’ve been really lucky this summer in London because the weather has just been so beautiful and hot. I’m an Autumn girl but I have to say the hotter it gets the happier people are around here. It is nice when you can make most of the weather and hang out and chill in the huge parks we have here in London.
So my story today is actually an incident that happened a few weeks ago. But I thought it would be quite funny or stupid on my part to share with the world. I’m not really bothered about telling people the stupid things I do, because I’m shameless.
On my lunch break few weeks ago I decided to check out the sale in GAP. They had some really cool stuff and I swear the sizing has changed because it’s seems quite generous. But anyways, there were some nice pair of denim shorts that I liked. Now when I saw these shorts I thought it was really unusual that they had a stretchy band at the waist instead of a button or zip. But I was over the moon because it looked like it would feel so comfortable and help cover my stomach. I wanted to quickly try on the shorts and a few other tops I liked.
When I tried on the shorts it really felt like a K-CI and Jojo moment:
All my life I prayed for some shorts like you
And I thank God that I finally found you.
I can’t describe how incredibly comfortable they were and the stretchy band felt so nice against my stomach which helped hide my Mount Himalaya. I mean I could wear this for Christmas dinners and I could eat as much as I wanted. It was a no- brainer. These bad boy shorts were coming home with mama.
I showed my work colleague what I bought. I told her that I found these shorts and they were so comfortable and that I wish everyone made shorts or jeans like these.
She burst out laughing and said to me that surely I knew what I just bought and why there was a band on the waist area.
Yeah, because someone out there is a freekin genius who wanted to make my life better.
No Meera. These shorts are maternity wear.
Hold up. Say what?
I told her it can’t be because I found them where all the non-maternity wear clothes were so it can’t be true. I checked the label and dammit it was maternity wear!!!!
Why does the truth hurt so much? Well how was I to know? I mean some idiot put these shorts in the wrong section and gave me false hope!
I’m not lying I contemplated long and hard for a few days whether I should keep them or not and just not tell anyone. I mean I care more about comfort than what anyone else thinks.
Wrong. My friends could not believe that I was actually serious that I wanted to keep them and told me to return them unless I actually was pregnant…WHICH I AM NOT! As I was reminded over and over again.
It was a sad day when I had to return them. I am now on the look out for the same style but I know what I had was irreplaceable.
