Put Your Sunglasses On

Think Bee Gees "You Should Be Dancing" + a John Travolta impersonation
Dress, Necklace, Headband: LOFT.  Button-up, Belt: H&M. Booties: JCPenney.

The whiteness of my legs and brightness of these photos may cause retinal damage, much like staring at the sun. I apologize. The camera was on the wrong setting, hence the really bright colors. 

I have no excuses for my pastiness. Actually, I blame it on my Scottish and British heritage. It's a load of bollocks, the whole skin type thing. If I lived back in Shakespearean times, I would be in style with the uber white flesh. Apparently I was born in the wrong century. The funny thing is that my last name is Rodriguez, which really throws people for a loop when they see me. You should see me next to Matt in the summer. He is one quarter Mexican, therefore he turns a beautiful shade of brown. Me, not so much, but I try. Guess there is another reason to be grateful it's beach season. Time to get my semi-tan on!

there is an old german saying that applies... (I'll try to translate)

to be pale is genteel and noble, suntanned is every peasant girl.

of course it is a rhyme :)

Anyway I know what you mean. It takes some time untill I get some tan... although my whole family is the exact oppostite. Unfair!

My legs would beat yours for the pastiness award--they are literally so white they could belong to a ghost. I really need to do something about them.

You look great! I am super pale at the moment, so trust me, you don't look at all pasty to me! :P

I was totally born in the wrong century as well although based on your photos, I'm pretty sure you have more color than I do. My husband is part Italian and has nice olive skin, especially in the summer. If I am outside in the sun for more that 5 minutes, I burn.
