I’ve never been the type to really wear a dress unless it was for a special occasion. (ie: wedding or a funeral). I have a hard time tanning my legs in the summer time, they usually burn before they get any sort of colour happening. Which is why I’m not fond of dresses. I never really liked my ghostly white legs or the Keratosis Pilaris on my thighs. It made me self-conscience, even though the majority of people don’t notice it like I do. You couldn’t even get me to wear a pair of shorts (unless they were Capri style) out in public with temperatures soaring above 30°C. It was not happening!
The last time I wore a dress was 10 years ago for a girlfriend’s wedding. I was her maid of honor. The past few summers here in Alberta have reached some pretty high temperatures and well wearing Capri’s just wasn’t cutting it anymore! I was tired of dying in the heat, just because of what people might think about my legs and skin condition. I needed to learn to not care anymore and invest in some good self tanning lotion!
Last year I started wearing dresses again when I got the chance to review one from Alight. Having the chance to wear it last summer, made me realize what I was missing out on. I could actually breathe! The dress was form fitting at the top, flowy at the bottom and I felt much cooler when the humidity hit. I have no excuse not wear these gorgeous Spring 2013 floral trends!
