Yesterday had me running about in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. A meeting here and an event there- yet, it was quite warm and dressing for both occasions seemed to almost get the best of me!
So I donned a little (for reals little) number sent to me from Lovedrobe to play in. Somewhere between my junior college days and NOW, I have become a bit more self-conscious about showing too much skin! I mean seriously, I used to be a college cheerleader, with no shame baring my legs (maybe because I was in shape then?), but now…
Heat trumps all!
My dog Titus makes a cameo!
The question I ask myself is: What is too short?
Usually appealing to the fingertip rule: if the dress passes my fingertips, I am in the clear! However, I still always feel a bit nervous baring my legs, so I find that I often go for a balance!
I also make sure when rocking ANYTHING Short to:
- Exfoliate! I do not have a preference here, but whichever I am in stock of, I make it work!
- Shave! I only shave my legs (cream hair remover elsewhere) but Venus Pro is my go to!
- Moisturize like no other! I LOVE me some Oil of Olay 7 Signs body lotion!
- To prevent my inner thighs from uncomfortably chafing, I use deodorant (especially when too short for spanx or tights!
If I bare my legs, the cleavage or the arms are usually covered up! Gotta keep a balance of things!
So I fancied this Lovedrobe number, paired with black flat sandals, a Lane Bryant ring and earrings I scored from Ideeli!
This is how short I can go- what do you think?
What about you?
How Short can YOU go?
