To all my fellow bloggers out there. Do you ever have an idea or inspiration for a post and it comes to you right before you are about to fall asleep? It seriously happens to me all the time or when I’m driving. This one came to me right when I was about to go down for the count and naturally I had to write myself a note on my iPhone while a certain someone was less than thrilled I was bathing the entire room in light with my monstrous iPhone 6+ screen……(you know I like setting the scene).
Anyways…..so this post came to me because I have been pinning so many Spring/Summer inspirations and I kept on finding a common theme…….I am really into that boho/festival/hippie chick look right now.
So I’m at Target the other day and I pick up this little crochet number and I try it on.
I mean how cute right? Wouldn’t it look amazing with a long maxi skirt and fun headband for music concerts when it’s scorching hot out??? Maybe I’ll even like throw a peace sign out during a photo opt because wouldn’t that be all fabulous and blogger like of me? I then proceed to literally have a 15 minute conversation with myself in the dressing room. Not because I am slightly crazy and like to have internal conversations with my alter ego because I honestly feel like this is a valid question. Are you ready for it?
After I have now hit the age of over 30 can I legitimately wear a shirt that shows my stomach?
I mean…..I have some shirts/pics from the good ole University of Florida days that I wish I could bury where I am rocking the stomach bearing shirts. Case in point. Oh yes you are seeing that white blonde hair correctly you don’t need to adjust your screens. Tell me you had those side lace up tie pants from Express? I was obsessed with those! They were also so great for that extra freshman poundage that was added on from way too many pokey stix and pizza late nights.
Let’s just say does anyone remember the beaded half shirts that the bottom half of the shirt was hanging beads? Oh you don’t let me find you an example (just cut this one in half and add hanging vertical beads to finish off the look).
You get extra points if yours was shaped in like a butterfly or another object to that sort. I swear I had them in every color. My hot pink one was the best with those sweet double string ties in the back.
I also loved to the rock that Britney Spears I’m not a girl not yet a woman video half shirts with those long batwing sleeves.
I’m seriously just laying it all out there today aren’t I???
So as I’m telling my sister I am taking some pictures for the blog and it involves a shirt that kinda shows my stomach I immediately hear the hesitation in her voice. I felt like I had to blurt out “it’s research for the blog” to which she brightened up “oh well then that’s okay“. Here it is put together with my southwestern skirt that I have pretty much been wearing on repeat.
So here is my question. What is the age you can’t show your stomach anymore even if you do hours of work outs and you could still legitimately rock it but think you probably shouldn’t anymore? There is no right or wrong I would just love to hear your thoughts! This is all in total good fun because you know I like to ask the really tough questions ;-) Spill let me know! xoxoxoxoxo
