For as long as I can remember, trying to look sexy is something that I cannot do. Not that I’ve been trying to do it for that long, but I guess I always thought I’d get to an age/place/stage that would mark the time at which I was no longer so calamitously awkward.
Last week Sean and I headed up to the lake for date night. It was spectacular—with no one on the lake, just enough sun to be gorgeous and just enough wind to cool. Sean was taking us out to putter in Northwest Bay and I was devouring the quiet. Everywhere I looked was more golden sparkle of sunshine on water and sparks of crimson in stands of tress.
I gabbed my phone and took a picture of the shoreline. Completely swept up in the beauty of the mountains, I turned the camera on myself and tried to snap a causal, “Oh, this? I’m just sitting on the boat with a bit of wind in my hair” kind of look. My hair snapped me in the eye, caught in my mouth and generally played the role of sexiness squelcher.
By the time I got to the end of my attempt at casual perfection, Sean had snuck into the frame and my hair whipped him too. He had to duck and weave.
Lesson here: The lake is sexy enough.
Actually, I think the first 2 of you have that “I’m so damn sexy I don’t NEED to brush my hair off my face” vibe.
My God — you’re Gorgeous! I agree with the comment above — and I love the 2nd picture. I think you need to stop thinking about “looking sexy”. You look like a woman far more interested in having fun than in worrying what she looks like. There is nothing more sexy than that!
Seriously — less thinking, more confidence and sexy is totally in your bgag.
Once upon a time, I was trying to have a voice -over career. For commercials when “perky” was required, I would try, and try so hard — never came even close to perky. Finally, I had to decide that perky and I would have to be good friends – ’cause I was never gonna nail it.
But you, girl – you got it made! Don’t think about it and sexy is all yours!
Sexy is really within.
But only the smart men know that.
You’ve got one.
I prefer casually fabulous to sexy. And you’re pulling that off quite well 😉 (especially in pic #4!)
