So many times we don't realize that it's the little things like this that are shutting us down. I wouldn't enjoy a precious day out with my husband if I was worried about something like this. An even bigger problem though are those of us who don't worry about things like this. I know a lot of people who say that they don't care what other people think. "I'm going to wear what I want to wear." I hear this most vehemently from people who aren't dressing for their best features. When we sit down to talk about why, it usually has an emotional component. Nine out of ten people don't have an actual attachment to these particular clothes. They know they aren't following "the rules" or dressing for success. But they want to believe that appearance doesn't matter, that it shouldn't matter. I'm sorry, but in the world we live in, it does matter.
In response to my grumpiness about minidresses, I put together this outfit as a compromise that I could live with. What are you thinking about compromising on?
