This outfit was inspired by a scoop of neapolitan ice cream–well, the strawberry and chocolate parts which are my favorite. I snapped up this Rachael Ruddick crossbody bag when it went on sale recently. It came in several leather options but embossed croco is my favorite (love that gold hardware.) To go have a drink with my husband on Saturday night, I wore this pink pencil skirt and crop top. I haven’t worn anything with a thigh split since the last time I wore my favorite draped dress, but I thought this was a fun night-in-LA look.
This post is also a love letter to my thighs.
Thighs: stretched smooth in front of dressing room mirrors only to bounce back to their natural dimpled state. This is for the girls, like me, who changed carefully in the locker room to hide your body. For women whose jeans wear away from the inner seams out, this is for you too. For the girls who wore shorts under dresses. For the ones who didn’t and rubbed their skin raw after a night of dancing. Wear the shorts. Wear the short dress. No thigh gap. No problem.
P.S. I’m excited to debut a new layout on the blog. It’s better organized and pretty cute. Be sure to check out the new About page and improved navigation. Tell me what you think!
