Your Yearly Reminder to #FreeTheArms
This is a Public Service Announcement brought to you by me, Natasha.
I usually share this post at the beginning of Summer and here we are in August and Summer is basically over, but I think this message is good to hear at any time!
I am here to tell you it is OK to #FreeTheArms
I want all the people out there to know, it is okay if you want to show your arms. Let the arms free.
This is something that has bothered me over the last few years. I have worked part-time in women's retail since about 2008 and there is one thing I am sick of hearing, "Do you have something to cover my arms. I don't wear sleeveless."
It makes me so mad! Fills me with rage! I understand we all have parts of our bodies that we don't like. I get it. I think I have elephant knees, but I'll still wear a dress or skirt! If it is hot and if you are hot why are you wearing a sweater over your sleeveless shirt?!
I sometimes wear something over a sleeveless shirt, but I'm always cold so there's that. It is not because I am ashamed of my arms.
Here is my theory. Nobody has great arms unless they are a professional body builder or something. And apparently, everybody hates their arms. If we all just universally understood that we all have bad arms then there wouldn't be any judgement or shame when wearing a sleeveless garment! Let the arms jiggle, people! It is ok.
I wear sleeveless a lot and before you say something along the lines of I must have good arms. Well, not really. After losing 60 lbs. I don't think my arms will ever be toned. But, if you are still self conscience, just always pose with your hand on your hip (like I just realized I do) and you'll look great!
Here is another great example! Jennifer Lawrence at The Oscars in 2014. She is a good looking gal and guess what? Her arms jiggle! And she is proud of it!
Be like JLaw, people! Let the arms free!
