bringing (my) sexy back

The title of this post is a bit of a stretch. I’m not sure that I ever had my sexy, really. I’ve never owned the type of clothes that one “goes to the club” in. I always am way self conscious in skirts on the shorter end of the spectrum and my definition of “short” is DEFINITELY not what other people consider to be short. I constantly question the age appropriateness of anything I even consider wearing even though my child is constantly making fun of me for my “long dresses” so obviously he doesn’t really care or think that I am even remotely close to being inappropriate.

Now, none of that is to say that I am hiding. I’m not wearing sweats or giant, two sizes too big shirts or anything but more that I don’t buy anything that is designed to *show* anything, specifically.

And then Alice, you know Alice? I blame Alice (sorry, I had an Arlo Guthrie moment there) sent me these awesome feather earrings

and I got a wild hair to wear them. Not just wear them but wear them. I figured they needed an outfit. Something fitting of their crazy appeal and since we were going to a Mullet Boyz show, you remember The Mullet Boyz, yes? I decided to get out of my comfort zone a bit and make myself something a little sexy.
I had pinned a DIY one shoulder no-sew top on Pinterest and that’s what I decided to go with, the original was black but I happened to have a gray mens shirt laying around so that’s what I went with

and I LOVE IT.

Not to be a totally bragging brat face but for a FREE shirt that was way outside of my comfort zone stylistically? I felt sexy, confident and stylish. Major win!

I think it showed

Just a bit
