⚡⚡BLINDED BY THE LIGHT (SKIN)⚡⚡


 shorts - diy, top - thrifted and diy shredded, boots - uo, bag - euphoria

If you are a close friend of mine then you know that I used to be quite the bully - a terrorizing little redhead who loved making people squeal and cry because clearly I had some control issues. Had? I mean have. The controlling person in me has simmered down, but the bully in me has completely died off. I'm not a moron jerk anymore, I promise. I've said my apologies. Back in those days I was never really victim to major bullying but I certainly heard my fair share of taunts when it came to my transparent white legs. I was called the "flashlight of the pool" when we would go swimming. People loved pointing out the brightness of my skin as if they were being blinded by two fluorescent lights. It sucked. I was so insecure about it that I didn't wear shorts once throughout high school. And now look at me: freakishly obsessed with shorts and still really white. Milky, rather. We'll just say that. Pale redheads go through a lot of BS until they are old enough to not give a crap and realize that they are rare and awesome. To all the redheads out there- CHEERS! Wear shorts! Luv u.

These shorts are effed. I let the bleach sit for way too long and now the denim has alopecia areata in the butt region. Nothing a pair of biker shorts can't fix, though.

  1. Girl I used to be teased too for white legs, but I would MUCH rather have white legs than look like an orange whore!

  2. Awesomest anecdote ever. Basically. And I was like AMEN to the whole thing! I got (and still get) made fun of for my really white legs, and I used to be embarrassed about wearing shorts, but now I just go and flash them around and I'm just like, "Blinded by the lightttttttt!!!!!!!"

    And also, hot outfit as usual. But you knew I would say that already.
