Outside My Comfort Zone #34

Hi folks. This challenge is 'Show Me Some Skin' and was chosen by Katt (of A Curvy Cupcake) who wrote: 'As summer approaches and the days get warmer, I'm struck with the fear of getting my pasty white legs and the tops of my arms out. Apart from the obvious rudey parts, what areas of your body do you prefer to keep covered?'

So, as per usual, I haven't prepared. I'd love to get in my swimsuit and take some snaps; alas I'm at work and I don't think a 7pm selfie in the mirror jobbie is going to cut it! I very rarely expose my legs bar the odd night out and when I do I'm near enough always wearing tights, primarily as I can rarely be bothered to shave.

Before I started blogging I was incredibly self-conscious about my arms and would keep them covered up until I couldn't take the heat anymore. Now, I don't care. I wouldn't say I like my arms but I'm just not bothered about them or by what other people think which, actually, is probably nothing. Anyway, *drumroll*, here they are in all their glory...
