Mmmmm lookit those pasty white ankles poking out. ;)
Actually, while I'm on the subject, I'd like to make AN OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:
I am going to try to fight peer pressure
and stay pale this summer.
There: now it's out there, and I can't take it back.
I mean, honestly, I'll probably end up with a slight glow: I love laying under the warm sun. But there are so many reasons for me to really try to avoid sun exposure:
1.) It's healthier for my skin. Hopefully I'll age better. And skin cancer-y stuff kinda runs in the family, so I'd like to avoid that, too, if possible.
2.) I wear more of my vintage wardrobe in summer, and it looks sooo wrong with tanned skin.
3.) It'll be cheaper/less stressful. I won't have to worry about having ugly tanlines, I won't have to pay to go tanning, I won't have to buy tanning oil and lotion (and sunburn ointment...heh heh). All I'll have to do is work a sunscreen application step into my morning ritual.
4.) I will never look like a beach bunny or Cali girl or surfer girl or whatever other sterotypes you can think of for tan females. My body and face just aren't set up that way, and whenever a person tries to be something they're not, it just looks sad.
Anyway, the whole "pale is pretty" thing really seems to be making a comeback right now. "Safe sun" is HUGE. And the pin-up look is always "in."
Anybody else gonna join me in the
fight to stay fair-skinned this summer?
I know it'll be hard when my pasty thighs start hanging out of shorts, so I could use some back-up and support!
Let me know in the comments!
Before I go, I'd like to point out that by shopping secondhand, this whole outfit cost me less that $40.00 (accessories included). I love secondhand shopping!
