To Tan or Not To Tan

Leather Shorts Vintage, Blouse Gap (old), Cardigan Topshop,Boots Ebay, Clutch Ghost, Necklace Untold
I wore this last night for a night out with the girls. Years ago I would not of dreamed of going bare legged without a tan but it felt so refreshing last night not to have tanned legs and not care. My friends were a little shocked especially as I was always the queen of tans. I have learnt to love my pale skin and to be honest for the past six years have worn SPF 50 and avoided the sun not only is it dangerous for my health but very aging too. So I say embrace your pale skin but I am not preaching if you enjoy having a tan that is great too :). I did have a tan anyway my new boots ordered from Ebay the other day and they arrived yesterday bargain £24.99 and I love them. Check them out for yourselves here.

btw my hair has not grown over night I have hair extensions in American Dream ones I only have one I wanted length not volume and yes I am wearing a black bra I liked the way it showed through the blouse

  3. I agree... it's nice to have a tan but the consequence is very disastrous to the skin. You rock the pale legs. And I love your hair. xoxo

  4. You don´t have to tan, your skin actually looks cool in this outfit - but if you´re thinking of using warmer colours then you could start considering getting just a little tan...

    I know all about this sun-tan dilemma, as I used to work in a sun-center when I was younger, but now I´m aware of the damage to the skin and only tans if strongly needed, meaning twice a winter and then I keep it coming natural in the summer. ;-)

  5. You are so sensible for not tanning! That's absolutely the best thing you can do to not get wrinkles. Nicole Kidman still looks amazing at age of 40 something because she never tans. Even though I am very brown, I wear spf 30 every day because I am so worried about ageing badly.

    You look fabulous and your legs look great! I heart the boots. You always find such amazing stuff on ebay!

  12. Oh wow, you are really brave! Not because of your pale skin but because of your naked legs and the coldness ;)

  13. OH gosh, when I was younger I was obsessed with the beach and tanning.... I'd be there 5 days a week... Terrible!!! and of course I'd use sunscreen, but I'd spend hours in the sun... Although I still love the beach, I'm more careful and I love my "paler" skin... did I just say I was pale? Well in comparison to a lot of people here, I am. :)

    I Love your skin color... it's pure!! It's beautiful.. and you are totally rockin' those shorts!!

    xx Love & Aloha

  14. I love this outfit, I think this is my fave so far! I love the shorts, I've been searching for some leather ones for ages! Also good on you for rocking the pale skin, I was thinking of going bare legged next weekend and was looking at my pasty legs in the mirror thinking time to reach for the st tropez but I think I will give it a miss...You look gorgeous!
    You're right about the spf 50, its the only way! I use spf on my face every day, best way to stop wrinkles!! xoxo

  19. I'd rather be pale than look like straight from the tanning bed. It looks more classy especially if you look what kind of people are overtanned
