Awkward should be the new sexy...

Maybe I am the only woman who feels this way, maybe I am not, but I hate trying to be sexy.  Maybe that's the problem right there... I am trying to be sexy.  I just find the whole concept of posing in a sexy manner to be absolutely hilarious!  I can barely make it through one pose before I am either cracking up or making funny smirks at the camera, while for others, it seems to come so natural.   

I didn't use to be this way.  In fact, when I was in my late teens and beginning of my twenties ALL my photos seemed to have a sultry air to them without even trying.  Maybe it was the long black hair and the over extended use of black eyeliner?  Maybe it was partially due to not developing a chest until the age of 17, thus becoming so infatuated with them, I felt obligated to have them front and center?  Whatever the case, it couldn't be any further from the person I am today! 


If in high school you would have said "aw, you're so cute!" I would have been mortified!  Now?  I find it to be a high complement.  Tell me I look hot?  I will instantly feel the need to add a couple more layers to my current attire!  I like feeling cute and dolly and dressed up in frills and flowers.  Maybe this feeling that I need to be more "womanly" (as some have implied) has stemed from my upcoming birthday, but I say screw it!  I like being girly and quirky and I vote that awkward should be the new sexy!  HA!

  3. Hooray for being cute! I always feel happy when people tell me that. The concept of being sexy and super womanly is pretty foreign to me. Maybe because I'm so short I never feel like I'm adult-sized and therefore must be cute. Who knows! Awkward cute definitely should be the new sexy!

    Anyway, your outfit is so cute. I love the top you're wearing and how you layered it over a dress.

  4. I think Awkward is the new sexy. Sexy is overrated and something I will never be. Even when flirting I come off so awkward, I don't even know how I got my husband.

  10. Very cute outfit. I agree, I think awkward should be the new sexy! I have a hard time taking "sexy" pictures too, I feel silly and a little ridiculous. Give me frilly and cut any day.
