In The Fashionista's Closet: Independence Day

I do not like to wear shorts. OR should I say, I do not like most shorts, I think the Bermuda length is good for me. I think that shorts are unflattering on most women, especially the short shorts that highlight thunder and cottage cheese thighs. *I'm not judging, I'm just telling you what I've seen. Also, if you consider this a problem area, consider where the shorts stop on your leg, this is the area the eye will be drawn to. We need to camouflage the problem areas and highlight our assets. So if you have the legs for it, by all means go for it!

I was going to suck it up and wear shorts this weekend to my town's 4th of July festivities because I was a jewelry vendor and I thought that wearing shorts would be more "practical" because of the weather, walking and moving around that I was going to be doing. But I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I had on my sister's shorts, a tank top and hat and was self talking myself into wearing the darn things. "It's just one day, they're just shorts, what's the big deal?"  But I just couldn't do it. So while at Walmart getting me a $5 folding chair, I bought myself a dress.

A $12 dress. A white dress. I braved the rain, the wind, the heat and the moving around and I didn't get a smudge on it, that I could see. I was pretty pumped about that and felt that I deserve to feel comfortable in what I'm wearing, whatever the occasion.

It's important to remember to be Independent, be an Individual, BE YOU!

I totally agree about shorts, I own one pair of Bermuda length because that's the only style that doesn't say "HEY LOOK AT MY THIGHS" in a way I do not enjoy haha.

The dress is fabulous on you! A dress can be cooler than shorts. Enjoy your blog and your outfits.
