Skater skirts are not my favorite style to wear, but I love this one!  In general, I am not a fan of shorter skirts because I know that my legs are not my best asset and that’s okay.  Due to the fact that it is still a little chilly outside, I was able to pull off this fab skater skirt with tights.  I absolutely love to pair my skaters with tights because it makes me feel more comfortable when wearing shorter styles.  It is necessary to step outside of what you always do with your fashion choices sometimes, but it is also very important to be comfortable with how you look in your clothing.  I cannot feel amazing if I am self-conscious about how my clothes look on my body, and people will notice.  Confidence is not something you can really fake because your body language speaks louder than your words. 

 

Your clothing should speak the message that you want the world to see.  I never wear anything to make a point about “body confidence,”  and I don’t believe that showcasing my flaws means that I am confident about my body (that has nothing to do with self-esteem).  I wear clothes that fit my body well and that I feel good in.  When I feel like I want to push my boundaries in fashion-I do.  My goal is to always create the vision that I want people to see.  I know exactly what I want people to focus on when I put together an outfit, and I don’t want any distractions.  Make sure that you are comfortable with the items that you choose to wear because when you feel great, you look great!  I never allow myself to be pressured to try trends that don’t suit me or to wear clothing that doesn’t look good for my body type.  

 

I hope you are able to find your comfort zone in fashion too!  Leave any thoughts that you have below or Tweet Me!

  • I totally agree. Granted sometimes I do feel that I can push my boundaries a little more, I tend to stick to things that make me feel good and that flatter my flaws the best. Like you my legs aren’t my best asset and I hate a VBO (visible belly outline).

  • Serenity

    You ain’t never lie. When something it too tight or fussy, it takes over my whole day

  • You look FABULOUS! I love that you did that pop of color with that amazing red lipstick.
