Ginger girl legs versus mini skirts

 

Howdy folks! Excuse me for not beeing in my writing mojo lately. I am under so much time pressure and am kind of freaking out about the exams and all the preparations I still need to do. I wish it were July already! 
First I want to say a little somthing about this dress. I got it from Asos with a giftcard Cynthia from Go Chic or Go Home send me for my birthday. So sweet of her! It was quite the hassle to get this dress to me though. It got lost in the mail, but eventually arrived three weeks after I placed my order. I can wear it both as a top and a dress, so eventhough the busy print, it’s a really versatile piece that I’ll enjoy wearing all summer. 

For the first time in weeks we get to enjoy some sunshine here in Belgium! Our little country has been doing it’s name of a rainy place more than justice the past few weeks! I’m glad the April showers seem to have moved on and these pale legs of mine finally get to enjoy the sun. Yesterday, K and I even layed down in the sun for a while. He gets tanned SO fast! It’s unfair, haha. White and red are about the only two shades my overly sensitive skin can do. Hooray for sunblock! And ice creams and strawberries. ‘Cause that’s what sunny days are made for!

    I love that jacket! And I can understand the sunblock thing, I'm the same way!

    Ooh I know what it's like to have such pale skin that never tans… anytime I'm around my friends I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb! You look wonderful – I love that dress!

    I love the combination of your dress, blazer, and the amazing pop of yellow in the bag!
    Pale legs = not just a ginger problem. I went on a sunny vacation back in december where I actually burned. My legs are disgustingly pale again.

    Sincerely,

    Your 'pale' legs are lovely!

    We need to start a pale leg guild. Seriously.

    I'm glad that dress made it to you because it is quite nice. (:

    I love the print of that dress! Reminds me of something you'd see on artwork in the 60's. And oh how I wish it were still spring like weather in CA! It's been in the mid 90's for the last two weeks and I hate it! LOL. Summer in Fresno, CA is unbelievably hot. You look very sweet! <3

    You definitely rock your paleness so it's all good! I embrace it too!

    Also that dress is so cute! Especially paired with your blazer and that amazing yellow satchel bag.

    You look so cute! Glad that dress finally made it to you 🙂 I hear ya on the sunscreen – my fiance tans so easily but all I do is burn. That's the life of a redhead!

    Love the dress! Perfect for summer. Living in London, I completely understand taking in the sunshine whenever it decides to come out for the afternoon. Strawberries and ice cream are the perfect complement to warm days.

  33. 16 May 2012 / 16:12

    Love the dress on you–the length is perfect and the little yellow bag–perfection!
