OUTFIT// LESS SEXY MORE REXY PT 2

Some of us aren't comfortable showing a lot of skin and by some of us I mean me. I want to be, but whatever - we are who we are.

I tell myself "Self,  experiment why don't you?" but inevitably I find (not so) sneaky ways to un-sexy my "sexy". 

Here's a perfect example:

What you're looking at are short shorts that look like a skirt and an oversized, boxy top. 

The top came with a SUPER skin tight pencil skirt. I LOVED the print and got both pieces- BUT I got the top that was already designed to be oversized - 1 size larger. I knew if I did this, the fit would be baggy and balance out the sexiness. Check out the sick texture, color and pattern on this THANG! 

SHOP PRINTED TOPS

One thing I like to think of when shopping is, how can I make it look like I wear skirts sometimes, even though I don't like to.  Enter SKORTS.  I know, gross. But you know what I mean! 

SHOP PRINTED SHORTS

Ahhhh... the "sensible black ankle boot" it's a wardrobe staple. Unavoidable. But also a great way to anchor looks from being too showy. Imagine this outfit with a stiletto. Exactly. It would be hot, but NOT TODAY.

SUEDE ANKLE BOOTS

You might be asking - why so shy about showing skin, when you're wearing ridiculous, seizure inducing prints? A girl's gotta' have something. 

Patterns in the same color family = winning.

PERSONAL DARE:: 3 WAY PRINT MIX IN BLACK AND WHITE

Ever dare yourself to wear something "out there" because it's too boring to be safe? Even if it means you might make people dizzy just by looking at your outfit? Yeeaaahhh.... I did that.

What you're seeing: 3 separates. Slouchy check pants, a quasi-polka dot blouse, under a short sleeved sweatshirt.

I have two safety nets: #1 everything is black and white, hence easier to digest

#2 It's all anchored with a black jacket and black boots.

We'll see if I get more cheers or jeers on these mean streets! Kidding. Who cares.

One of these days, wear something that scares you (the good kind of scared)
