Striped Mini

Let’s face it, I don’t have much of a shape.  I actually had a boy ask me (genuinely) if something happened to my chest or if I was a little girl haha.  It used to make me feel very insecure but I’m kind of over it now and enjoy the freedom that I don’t have to worry about my boobs being too big for a flowy top making it unflattering.  Trust me, I’ve been there.  Breastfeeding gave me 32 DDD’s, it sucked and I don’t miss them at all.  I’ve become more comfortable with my body the past couple of years and don’t care that I don’t have boobs anymore and I’m not embarrassed about it so I decided to switch things up a bit and try wearing something more form fitting, kinda.

I used to wear little body con skirts a lot and I always did it modestly with a baggy top and boots.  The first time I wore one literally every part of my skin was covered except a few inches of leg (mostly my calves), but that didn’t stop a car full of girls driving past me at Wal-Mart and yelling at me to “put some clothes on!” (I know, classy huh?)  I also had other random people make rude comments about my skirts being “inappropriate.”  I don’t think that mini skirts are “inappropriate” but I let those comments get to me and I didn’t feel comfortable wearing them and haven’t worn them in years.  This little striped piece was sitting in my “get rid of” basket but I decided to give it a try and ya know what? I felt pretty damn hot.  I also realized, there’s nothing inappropriate about body con skirts.  It shows the tiny bit of curve that I have, so why not show it?  Every person on the planet has a body, not a big deal if somebody wears something tight or flattering on it.  Why do people feel the need to be ashamed or make other people feel ashamed for having a human body when we all have one?  And who cares if a skirt is a little tight?  The older I get (especially being a mom who deals with the opinions of other moms who think they’re the best parents imaginable) I just honestly don’t care if everyone approves of everything I do, and it feels pretty good to not care so much anymore.  Wear whatever you want to wear and do whatever you want to do (as long as it’s legal)  no matter what anyone says.

      Ah thank you Erica, I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t have an issue with miniskirts. I’m from a small town in West Virginia so maybe that’s why people acted like it was a big deal haha

    You do look pretty damn hot! I think it’s great to flaunt what you have, tastefully, just like you did here. Love the skirt paired with those OTKs 🙂
