how to style blue shorts

 

Hey all-
Its finally not the Devil’s Playground outside and Im enjoying the slight coolness in the air. I finally got to whip out my silk Liz Claiborne shirt I found while thrifting in Virginia and paired it with my high waisted sailor inspired short shorts! I know that my mom will probably have a bad comment about the length and cut of these shorts and I do love you manman and followed your advice with something loose on top so BE NICE, hahaahh! I recently was on Wardrobe Oxygen’s site and saw she is having a giveaway for a Not Photoshopped T-Shirt and I am DYING to win it. I see SOOOOO much photoshopping in blogs these days and it makes me SO incredibly sad. I live and die by the motto of “To Each His/Her Own” but I believe the purpose of a personal style blog is to showcase our uniqueness and individuality and to get away from all the alterations and enhancements in main stream fashion media. I want young impressionable women to see women who look like them making it in fashion so that they too feel they can do it! I am all about editing for colors and sharpness but to change your face or airbrush your bad skin just seems a tad dishonest to me. Be you and Be proud of that. With all that said, these are my thighs and all their cellulite glory lol. I refuse to airbrush and/or smooth them out so please enjoy the dimples and bumps that come with being a real woman with real curves. Yes I do need to work out more but hey at this point in the game this is what I look like and I dont mind it all that much!!!! Be confident in how you are made because we are all unique and I pray none of us want to be cookie cutter images of what’s currently categorized as “beautiful”!
For this post, I decided to wear super duper minimal makeup. I never ever ever ever EVER wear foundation and am a concealer ONLY girl. For this shoot, I used brown eyeliner on my lower lids only, Maybelline Mega Plush Volum Express Mascara on top and bottom lashes, and some clear lip gloss. I applied my concealer around 8am but didnt shoot till 7pm so I prob should have reapplied but ehhhhhh didnt.lol
 I am not really a makeup guru nor do I really like it all that much
but I will never go without my concealer because these hereditary dark undereye circles of mine make me look tired even when well rested and sleepy never looks cute!!!

    Your shorts are really cute. I love anything high-waisted. I agree with you. We should all try to be as we are and not be a copy of someone else. Enjoy your body because that’s what makes you who you are. Lovely post!!!

    Aww thanks so much lovely! And one of the many reasons I adore you is because you embrace who you are, and who you are is fabulous!

    thank you Audrey! I appreciate you visiting the blog and leaving such a nice comment. I like high waisted as well because it makes me more proportioned. I have short legs and a long torso so this fixes my problem lol

    I love this post and you look great!!! I like the pairing of loose with fitted, in fact, that’s a personal rule of mine. It’s something about opposites attracting;-). Also, my expectation is similar…I think of style blogs as a representation for how “real girls” do it.

    xo,

    U look amazing!!!!!!!!!!! I agree I saw a blogger that I thought had great skin until I saw a non photoshopped candid and I was like O_O….I really didn’t think there was much photoshop in blogger world (maybe because I’m a newbie) but I DEF see it now smdh………..I love makeup but I only wear it on weekend and when going out……during the week I love to let my skin breath.

    Thank you Manman. I know that took a lot out of you to say 🙂 the shorts aren’t that short actually when you have flats on but with heels they look little hahaha. I love you.

    Thank you Kareem. From 3rd grade to 10th grade I played basketball. In high school I played tennis volleyball basketball. Now I play football and recreational volleyball. But I was just born with legs like this. As I get older they get a little less muscular and a lot softer lol

    Hi Sarah- Thank you so much for the compliment and for visiting my site! I actually just use a basic google template for mine but my logo/header was made for me by my graphic designer. She is really awesome and has done several other blogs as well for a good price. Let me know if I can help in any way! Her email is kefi.creations@gmail.com
