| Dress – F21 | Sandals – Payless | Necklace – F21 | Purse – Thrifted |
Don’t laugh but I wore this dress to spend the day at South Pointe Park. It seemed like the perfect outfit for sitting in the grass while I listened to music and people watch. Of course, once I got to the park I felt way overdressed but then I thought “who cares”. This dress is dope I look great wearing it. I have to keep reminding myself not to concern myself so much with what others may be thinking.
Stay True to Yourself
I found this dress in store from F21 and I knew it was meant for me. My only hesitation was the sheerness of the dress. Sounds strange coming from a person that just raved about this completely sheer top, right? Hear me out. I am completely comfortable with an exposed upper body. But the thought of having my booty and thighs on display in a non-beach/pool setting is something different.
I bought the dress anyway and ended up wearing a pair of high waist swim bottoms which worked out perfectly. At times I over think my appearance but there’s nothing worse than being uncomfortable in your own clothing. I like to try new things when appropriate but I always want to carry myself as a lady before anything else.
My traditional ways come from my southern upbringing and my grandmother. To this day I won’t step foot in a church with bare legs! Living in South Florida has loosened me up a bit. Pretty much anything goes here but just anything isn’t for me. I could wear this dress to brunch or the mall booty just swaying all over the place but that’s not cute, nor would I feel comfortable.
Has your upbringing ever affected your sense of style?
