Dress Your Best Week: Day 4

This week, I am participating in Academichic's Dress Your Best week. The focus is on dressing to accentuate your best parts, rather than focusing on hiding the parts you don't particularly like. For Day 4, my focus is on my legs again.

My legs were the first body part I learned to appreciate asthetically. I began receiving compliments on them in high school. I quickly learned that other people thought my legs were attractive. While I knew others thought I had nice legs, it took me a while to actually see my legs as attractive. Once I discovered for myself that I had pretty legs, I would dress occasionally in short skirts to show them off.

Once I started dancing, I learned to appreciate my legs for their flexibility and strength, as well as for their asthetic appeal. Living in the city for the last several years, I've come to appreciate how great it is to be able to walk and use public transportation to get pretty much anywhere rather than having to drive. I again appreciate my legs for their ability to transport me around.
