All women have the right to BARE ARMS!

How do you feel about your arms? When it’s hot out and you see people wearing sleeveless tops and dresses what do you feel? Do you feel like you couldn’t possibly wear something sleeveless because your arms aren’t slim and trim? I used to feel that way too until one day I realized that I was denying myself the comfort and cuteness of sleeveless clothing because other people might be offended by my chubby upper arms. Really!

How did I change my way of thinking about this one body part? I guess I just realized that even if others thought my arms were too chunky to go sleeveless, their thoughts would be fleeting. The truth is, most people are too busy worrying about other things to give more than a passing thought to the circumference of your upper arms or even to notice that when you stopped waving goodbye to them your upper arms waved just a little longer.

Why do I go sleeveless?

Because it’s really none of my business what others think of me.

  1. First, I have to say that as I type this, I’m wearing one of your dresses! I bought it in Chicago this past weekend and i *love* it.
    While I was in Chicago and temperatures soared close to three digits, I had packed a very losely knit cardigan from Old Navy because I *never* go out with out my upper arms covered (3/4 sleeves are my bff) but it was so hot, I actually took off the sweater for a little while…while wearing your dress…and I. felt. awesome.
    It was pretty much the first time in my adult life that I was sleeveless in public. Crazy. I’m 38!

    1. WooHoo!
