I love this layered scrunchie-like skirt. Because of its unique construction, it's able to be scrunched or stretched into different styles and lengths. I always wear it longer and more asymmetrical but over the gorgeous weekend, I chose to wear it super short and high-waisted while we zoomed around on the Vespa. Because why not?

If you've been following me for a while, you know I don't really show that much skin. In street wear, anyway. Yes, when it comes to building an ensemble, I'm all about balancing out the extremes. Showing lots of leg? Oversize coverage on top. Sporting a deep V? Then legs shall be majorly draped. But there's probably a few times a year that I like to swan dive into different waters and rock a much bolder minimalist style.
And this "bolder" style usually has to do with a lack of modesty... since I don't tend to come up short in that area normally.
So when baring a lot, the key style ingredient is definitely confidence :)
I have to say, when lacing up my heels it took a couple moments to mentally transport myself from feeling like a blushing half-naked woman to a happy, confident fun time gal. It's not a big deal to some but for me I was definitely pushing myself outside my comfort zone.
This zippered parachute jacket, is super light and full of drape. Perfect for hanging over lace camisoles, bra tops and tattered tanks. It tones down anything very revealing or anything too casual.
When it came time to take a stroll that day, I did bring along my trusty Keds to change into, which turned my style a bit sporty. I preferred this look to chunky heels but alas, my super short legs need height and length when wearing minis. *Sigh* I accept this vain truth about my anatomy but I always bring a more comfortable alternative pretty much wherever I go!
It's good to get outside the comfort zone every once in a while. Especially if it challenges your insecurities or body image. I'm always admiring the many different styles and physical traits of other women and I have to remember to give myself the same admiration...
And strut my stuff!
happy monday folks :)
