When I wore this outfit, several Turkish men shouted this as I strutted past. How clever, they know my name, I thought….but no. Turns out, actually meant that they thought I was very J-Lo esque with my look…I’ll take that! The half skirt does flow out semi dramatically if you get a bit of a stride on which could be a bit ‘Popstar in a wind tunnel’ I guess, but that and the name are sadly where the comparisons to la Lopez end
The only thing I’d mention about this look – the shorts kind of morph into big pants when you sit, so being confident about you thighs is a bit of a must. As you can see some of the pics are a teeny bit blurry at the bottom, that’s where I was trying to swirl the skirt out so it’d look fab on the pics. Didn’t work so well, the real J-Lo would’ve handled that task like a boss! I thought about taking a video of me walking, or on the rocks later on when the wind was a bit stronger, but then I ended up having wine (I don’t drink) and both may have been a bit hazardous….maybe next time.
