“Society can paint this picture that we are only beautiful if we are sexually desirable.”
A few weeks ago, I went to one of my favorite 2 day concerts ever- Dave Matthews Band! However, I was appalled by the number of beautiful girls that felt the need to wear next to nothing! I understand as females that we want attention, we want people to look at us and think WOW…but there is a difference between Wow and Woah.
As a woman, (holy cow- calling myself a woman is weird) we want to be sexy and beautiful. We want to be noticed and we want to be appreciated for who we are and the way we look and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! However, to me sexy doesn’t mean we should wear as little clothing as possible and showing off all of our mystery. I know we all can relate to this feeling of the media is constantly pressuring us with their perception of beauty- which happens to be focused on showing all your secrets. To me, being sexy and beautiful is an attitude. It’s dancing around your bedroom in sweatpants, it’s challenging yourself to grow in areas that might not be your strength, and it’s rocking a killer new outfit, it’s wearing a dress to feel girly, it’s embracing my curves, it’s wearing my tight fighting jeans, a fun tank and some studs on my shoes. It is simply based on the attitude you have about yourself.
Trust me- the outfit that shows all your gems might get a double take from a cute dude, but a sexy/beautiful attitude will grab someones attention and leave a lasting impression. Besides, who wants to spend a ton of money on clothing that BARELY covers you? Anybody with me?? Above are some SEXY/BEAUTIFUL outfits that are basics you can find at almost any department store for reasonable prices! Finally, look in the mirror and tell yourself: “I am beautiful, strong, and so worth loving!” If you need to write this on your mirror and put it on a notecard to place by your door before you leave for the day.
