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!
