This photo is reminds me of tennis time when I was ten years old. No, it wasn’t even close to what I wore. My mom wouldn’t even invest in a tennis skirt for me, she thought gym shorts were just fine for a little teen whose job was to learn, not to show off, yet. She was right, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t imagine myself in a tennis outfit, or at leasts an après tennis outfit like the one above: headband leftover from practice, baggy white dress that you can breathe in (you’re so hot from the workout) and comfortable sandals. So tennis-playing ladies, take inspiration!
