Dress Your Best Week: Day 5

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 5, my focus is on my legs. Again.

This week I've dressed to accentuate my legs, defined waist and curvy hips, thin figure, butt and collarbone. Legs were definitely the easiest to accentuate. When I thought about dressing my favorite parts, most of the outfits that popped into my head were featuring my legs. So I have 4 leg outfits, 2 collarbone outfits, and 1 each for the other parts.

When initially thinking about participating in this, my hands and feet also came to mind as favorite body parts. I was at a loss as to how to dress for my feet other than wearing sandals, and it was way too cold for sandals. I don't really dress to show off my hands, since they always show, but I do usually keep my nails longer and polished. The polish draws attention to my hands and the longer nails visually extend my already slender nicely-shaped fingers.

This week has been a lot of fun. I've enjoyed thinking about my favorite parts while deciding what to wear. I'm LOVING reading all the Dress Your Best posts on other blogs. I'm still working my way through the long list of participants at Academichic.
