I spent a lot of my early blogging days moaning about how short a lot of dresses were on me, often sending them back with a heavy heart.
I think of those dresses I wore once, and then panicked and sold on because, again, the skirts were too short.
Since I have moved out of my parents, and I can choose outfits without the beady eye of my Mam saying it is too short, too tight, too revealing, I have noticed a definite shift in my dress choices.
I think it all started with this eBay bargain - ex-Sainsbury's stock:
A dress that had been in my wardrobe for about a year, but certainly not worn as often as it should have been. Because, you guessed it, the Mam voice in my head said it was just too SHORT:
TOO SHORT? If this is too short, well, it is going to be my go to dress / skirt length then!
Ta dah - a girly skirt, and comic book tee - what more can you want for a casual Friday at work!
It has also meant that dresses I'd normally wear with leggings for a little more leg coverage, I'm now more inclined to wear with tights:
It has only been a short time since moving out, but the change in my day to day (even if we jsut look at fashion choices) has been palpable. My knees are no longer the enemy.
And reader, I bought it! £9.99 for a plain skater skirt - where is the harm in that! So, my next casual Friday outfit will feature this I reckon!
Life is too short to allow other's opinions and expectations drag you down.
Much love my lovelies,
