This post really resonated with me and when I found that these girl's were doing another Dress Your Best challenge, I knew I wanted to participate.

I used to be envious of girls with long skinny legs. I am not one of those girls. I have calves that are bigger than most boys (except of course the hubs!) I know. But I have finally embrace my muscular calves. They have helped me finish 3 marathons and countless other races. They are most currently stretching more than they ever have and carrying me through my yoga practices. And for that I am thankful.

I love the concept behind dressing your best! Those awesome heels you're wearing paired with the shorts are a great way to show off your legs!!!

Love your color combo! You do look fabulous showing off your legs.

This is a great concept to focus on our positives instead of the negatives. We should love ourselves always!

Reading about your calves in comparison to my post on my calves was interesting. I mentioned I was lacking the "shapely leg," and yet you've got shapely calves and have seen that as a draw back at times. I'm glad you're embracing your calves too!

Love these colors together - and you do have amazing calves, and great legs altogether!

I think the dressing your best bit is one interesting way to focus on our assets! Many times we feel bad when a trend we want doesn't look good on us. We have to remember to know our body first then work around the trends from there.once you feel good inside, it will exude and make us gorgeous on the outside.
