Monochrome and My Really White Legs

Wowzers.  Check out these bad boys!


Pretty intense.

I actually don’t mind being pale.  I’ve never been one who feels the need to tan which is a good thing since I clearly don’t tan.  I’m really against the fake-bake.  Ladies, and men, it does not look natural.


I’m a freckly, pale lady and darn proud of it.


But seeing these photos just highlighted the fact that I HAVE to get back on the workout train.  Good thing I got two new workout DVD’s, Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and JM Killer Buns and Thighs.  How appropriate.

326But regardless of my legs color and size, I will always rock the skirts and dresses.  Been doing so since 1986 and I have no plans of stopping anytime soon.

376This is one of my absolutely favorite skirts.  Should have taken a close up.  Blogger fail.  I recently wore this outfit to work and felt so sleek in my monochromatic look all day.  Little did I realize my legs also joined in the monochrome party.

  1. Very cute! I love gray and black/white combos. I think I’m starting a blog! reneebakes! I just posted but I ran out of time to play around. I’m SO BAD at figuring out technology, so that’s why my first post is about that!

    • lol I love that you’re starting a blog! I’m happy to help with anything I’ve learned. It’s a slow process but it gets really exciting each time you figure something out.

  2. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog. 🙂 You’re too funny bout your monochrome legs! The skirt is cute, btw.

  4. Such a cute outfit! You look amazing. And I’m glad you don’t mind being pale, there’s NOTHING wrong with embracing your natural tone!!

  5. You look so cute! And I totally embrace the pale too 😉 Haha!

  6. hehe! You are too cute…I will admit to doing the tanning salon thing when i was in college, but I’m so over it now. I do tan pretty well, but let’s be honest..I work a 9 – 5…when do I have time sit by the pool?? pretty much, never. lol!

    Anyway, love your monochromatic gray! I love gray…such a versatile color, but a little more soft than black.

    • Thanks! Yeah 9-5 here too. And when I do sit in the sun, I’m covered in suntan lotion and usually clothes lol. I burn so bad and so quickly!

      Thanks girl, I should have taken a picture yesterday. I had pretty much all blue/green on and loved it!
