Loud, Flirty and Nerdy.

May 22, 2015

AngelicaMeghan and I are all challenging ourselves to blog every day during the month of May.  We are hoping you can join in too!  Today’s prompt: Describe your style.

On any given day, you will find me wearing:

  • High contrast colors.  Mainly in the form of stripes or polka dots.
  • Ripped up jeans.
  • Graphic tees.
  • Feminine / retro silhouettes.
  • Busy florals.

And on most days, you’ll be seeing many of those combined together for my daily attire.  I don’t know if that can be considered any particular style but I’m going to say that my style matches my personality: Loud, Flirty and Nerdy.  

I guess you are who you are, right?

And perhaps I should add “natural” to that list.  I am a minimalist in terms of makeup and skincare, and that includes the blinding level of pale I rock on my legs all year long.  I’d like to pretend that the beginning of summer is the worst because my legs haven’t seen the sun in a while but that would be a big, fat lie.  My legs never retain any color.  I think I just get used to the blindingly white color of them as the season goes on.

Part of my amazing Bella VoxBox from Influenster a couple of weeks ago was a travel size sampler of Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs.  I have never been someone to try and change my skin color.  Not by tanning, spray tans, bronzers…nothing.  I have accepted my fair skin and it’s okay with me.  Plus, I assume it’s going to look super obvious that I tried to look darker than I am.  

But if someone sends you a sample of something, you have to try it, right?

Right out of the tube, the smell was a little powerful.  But once I rubbed it into my skin, I didn’t notice the smell.  And holy crap my leg absorbed the lotion!  Voxbox sent me the medium color and I was ready for a comic hour on how different my skin looked.  To be honest, it was actually quite natural and just gave my leg a sun-kissed glow.  Which is what Sally Hansen’s promise was on their packaging.

I only put the product on one leg, for comparison purposes.  Can you tell the slight difference in color between my left and right leg?

**Note to self: If you’re only putting a bronzer on one leg and wearing a skirt all day, you should probably make sure not to leave the house or see people that day.  Whoops.  Having two-toned legs is in, right?

I’m not 100% certain that I’ll be rocking Airbrush Legs this summer.  I’d consider it during maybe a special event like I wedding or prom (if I ever lock down the details of it).  Until then, you guys will have to just deal with these glaringly white legs during this year’s #summerwithoutpants where you will be seeing a lot of my aforementioned style, in full force.

So tell me.   What is your style?

 Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

While I do love free stuff, but that doesn’t stop me from giving an honest review.  All opinions are my own.  Pinkie swear.

    I'm like you – my legs are pale 99% of the year and the lone 1% is when I use a self-tanner type product for a fancy occasion when I need not be soooo pale. I'm like an Oreo, my top and feet will tan, but the middle stays white.

    You're adorable. You know I'm mom-crushing on you pretty hard! I think my style used to be a lot more wild, flirty, and nerdy. Lately it's neutral, comfy, and "seriously wishes she was taller" whatever that means. I just really feel like a tall girl trapped in a stumpy body. xo
