I still need to write this. Today it's in the 80's here. I went to the zoo. My outfit: ankle length straight skirt (not the coolest, I was wishing I had on one of my swirly tiered skirts or a broomstick skirt instead of what I had on...but still), and and ill fitting tank top, pink hoodie (I had to wear my pink hoodie no matter what and I could not take it off due to only having ill fitting tank underneath), sneaks and a bandana to disguise my bad hair day.
I felt SO out of place. And I'll admit, I was too hot, thanks to skirt and jacket.
If I would have worn a tube top, I would have fit in.
If I had been wearing DAISY DUKES with my butt cheeks hanging out, I would have fit in.
If I had been wearing a micro mini skirt, I would have fit in.
If I had been wearing a spaghetti-strapped tank blouse, I would have fit in.
If my nearly strapless sun dress had hit me mid-thigh, I would have fit in.
If I had been wearing short shorts, and a skin tight t shirt, I would have fit in.
What is UP with women's summer time clothing?????
Meanwhile the men are wearing: baggy pants, t-shirts or button shirts and IF they have on shorts, they come below the knee.
Seriously, Ladies...does anyone else see or get the disparity here?
I acknowledge the fact that I missed it when it came to judging the weather, getting dressed this morning, and I could have chosen cooler clothes...BUT STILL.
Why have women completely abdicated their dignity and their modesty? Why, why, why??????
And what kills me, is that if asked, most of these gals would probably call themselves feminists. And yet here they are, completely and blindly participating in the gross sexualization of their persons, leaving NOTHING to the imagination or to mystery.
Modesty, clearly, is a lost art.
How do YOU dress in the summer time? I will readily admit that I'm a little too futsy. I will also admit I have body image issues and that I'm overweight. And that I have a hard time finding the right balance. Really, I do.
