Sorry Girl, But I Won’t Put A Limit On Where I Wear My Nike Shorts And Leggings

Sorry Girl, But I Won’t Put A Limit On Where I Wear My Nike Shorts And Leggings

I feel confident and successful in Nike shorts and leggings, in and OUTSIDE of the gym.

For the past few weeks, I've seen so many articles about Nike shorts and oversized t-shirts and I'm not going to lie: I did not read them because I really didn't care.

I was like "wear whatever you want," you don't have to explain yourself to people.

The other day my friend sent me an article about a girl writing about how leggings and Nike shorts are for the gym and nowhere else.

At first, I was just like here we go again with another article about Nike shorts and telling girls that they shouldn't do something because it's "degrading."

But I actually decided to read this article and I'm actually kind of heated.

First I want to start off by saying I am not one of the girls that wear oversized shirts, I don't even have one oversized shirt. I also just bought two Nike shorts at the beginning of the summer and I have only worn them a total of three times, but I do wear leggings at places that aren't the gym. I feel like this Nike shorts and leggings only belong in the gym article is complete nonsense.

What's the problem with wanting to be comfortable?

No one wants to sit in a four-hour lecture class in a dress or jeans. I think it's absurd to think girls should wear jeans or a dress to a four-hour lecture. I don't need to be wearing a dress to a two-hour final exam, but I will wear one to a speech or a sports banquet. I think girls have a sense of when they should wear Nike shorts or leggings with an oversized t-shirt and when they need to dress more formal.

For you to sit there and write an article about how your not going to be successful if you wear Nike shorts to class is not necessary.

Why be formal if your just going to be sitting down in a cold room listening to someone talk about something that you really don't care about but need to know to graduate. Some of us don't have time to find a cute outfit to wear and go to the gym and shower 3 times a day because we're studying, trying to get our degree which is why we wear leggings and Nike shorts.

Just like you, I went to private school and maybe you don't believe girls should wear Nike shorts or leggings to class because you never really had the chance because you had to wear a uniform.

I believe a girl should wear whatever she thinks is comfortable, if she thinks jeans and dresses are comfortable, okay then wear them. But if she thinks leggings and Nike shorts with an oversized t-shirt is comfortable, then let her wear leggings or Nike shorts with an oversized t-shirt. A girl shouldn't be judged because shes comfortable in something that you don't find to be cute to wear in public places that aren't the gym.

If guys can wear sweatpants or shorts all the time and be called cute, why can't a girl wear leggings or Nike shorts and not be called trashy?

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.


2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."


3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.


4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."


8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)


9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.


10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."


18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

5 Simple Ways To Be 'Extra'

Use these simple ways to keep yourself looking extra put together.

80
views

A small part of us all strive to look like we have it all together more than we do, so why not do it in a few easy ways?

1. Buy from companies that sell trendy clothes for cheap

My favorites include H&M, Amazon, Fashion Nova, Pretty Little Thing, Charlotte Russe, and Zaful.

2. Keep your makeup, hair and nails on point 

This does not require much work at all, but just to have that extra put together look, do a little to your hair, makeup, and nails when you want. You could even put on some cheap falsies or throw up a sleek pony to take it a step further. Keep your nails painted and groomed.

3. Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize.

Even if it's just a few rings or necklaces or some hoops, you'll have that added touch. Carry a bag or purse or throw on some shades.

4. Wear a flattering outfit 

These outfits don't have to be uncomfortable by any means, just matching and trendy.

5. Have a good scent

Find a perfume or body mist that you like and use it consistently. Everyone will be more drawn to you.

These tips can be taken in whichever way is best for you. You don't have to buy anything new either, just add things that you wouldn't normally.
