Now back to your regularly scheduled blog post.
I'm talking about clothes, people, get your minds out of the gutter.
Anyway, I could have sworn that skirts and dresses weren't always THIS short.
At first I thought I was imagining it. But then I was watching a movie from 2001, and I realized that I'm most likely not. Also, check out this vintage Sex and the City promotional poster. Longer hemlines, no? Even Samantha's wearing a dress that covers her vajayjay.
It seems like a lot of dresses and skirts these days are either made for a tween or for a woman with killer tanned thighs that could crack walnuts. Some are so short, I wonder that if there were the slightest suggestion of a breeze, we might see a butt cheek.
I, on the other hand, am self-conscious about my knees and my upper thighs. Sure, I could go to the gym and that might help matters. But that's another post for a different day. I rarely reveal a lot of leg unless I am on the beach or maybe going out to a club. Who am I kidding? I don't go clubbing.
But I digress.
I know it gets hot in the summer, and as a consequence, women start wearing less and less clothing. It's only natural. But what are the casual options for those of us that don't necessarily want to wear a tiny little handkerchief of a dress, but also don't want to be covered from head to toe?
An adorable denim number from J.Crew.

Gap has some cute options, and they don't make you look like you're 78 years old.
