She’s got legs.

So at least 4 levels of leg shaving come to mind. I’ll start with the most extreme and move towards the laziest…

1. The full on top to bottom beach wear shave. Takes forever. Hate it. Love the beach.
2. The shorts/ short skit and flip flips shave, upper thigh all the way down. Some kids even have to shave their toes. It’s not our fault we were born brunettes.
3. The work skirt just above the knee down shave. Upper thighs cannot and should not be seen at work and if you can’t see it, I can’t be bothered to shave it.
4. What I did here. Which is just the area exposed in a work length skit and knee high boots. It was the first time I had to go without tights this year and it was all I could be bothered to do this AM.

Love this dress. It’s a bit big on me and I kind of like the way it hangs as a result. I must say I count myself lucky to have a navy slip the right length to go with it, it just happened to come with a dress I bought at Target last year.

And honestly, I think I might just wear it with these boots even in summer. It’s such an airy dress that I almost feel that I need the boots to ground it and keep me from feeling more naked than I really am!

I know I’ve gone on about these earrings before, but I am going to do it again. So quirky, so fun. And when I wear them I normally don’t feel like I need much else. They are big and bold without being heavy and they make a statement.

Look at how cute it is in the bushes…

The detail on it leads me to believe an actual cicada was used it it’s making. I think actual cicadas are kind of gross. I love to listen to them, it’s so soothing. But I avoid getting near them at all costs. They just... freak me out.

I love those earrings! Although I can't really get behind you on the real cicadas. They annoy me with their buzzing while I am trying to watch TV or sleep.

I probably shouldn't admit this but I shaved the bottom 4-5 inches of my legs this morning, just what was on show at the bottom of my cropped jeans - the height of laziness!

No shame girl!~ It's not that differant than what I did.

Sal said...

Hah! I did the only-the-parts-that-show leg shave today, too. Must be something in the air that's making us all lazy ...

Kasmira said...

Yeah....cicadas = YUCK! But your earrings are super cute.

Candycane said...

Yey we both went tightles today - although I did wax my legs for the first time EVER yesterday!! EEP

Lovin the dress and boots!!

Cicada's remind me of holidays .. we don't tend to get them in the uk so I like to hear them as it mean's i'm somewhere lush!! (Not that the Uk isn't teehee .... digs hole)

Am I the only person here who thinks it's perfectly acceptable to wear tights all summer? Ha!

E, I really like this dress with those boots. And I've been missing the cicadas--I haven't seen them in forever!

Also, sorry I've been such a lurker and not such a commenter lately...I need to be whipped back into shape I suppose.

Hilarious, and so true. I have very thick, dark bodyhair, and it's always been a battle. Definitely have to shave the toes, too.

Love the earrings. I thought it was just me who shaved selectively :)

Shave what you need, no more, - it's a good way to avoid dry skin.
