Sometimes I look at other girls and think "wow, they look gorgeous in those clothes. I'll also dress like that". But then when the time comes I feel bad for wearing it. It's like, I feel like people will think I am trying to seek for attention and like everyone is looking at me. If people look at me I'll think they're probably thinking negative things. I know it's stupid. But it happens sometimes. Maybe it's because I usually wear "normal" clothes, but somedays I feel like dressing up and want to feel pretty. But then, again, I think it is "too much" because that's not what I usually wear.
For example: I bought this socks because I really love them. I only wore them once though, because even if I really like them, I feel like people are looking at me.
I love shorts and I like to see it in other people, but when I use them in college or something I don't feel good because I spend 99% of the time wearing pants. If that makes sense.
Girls, have you ever felt something like this? Just wanted to know if it's just me or anyone else xD

I feel you. I've been changing my wardrobe, slowly cause I don't have much money, but when I wear the new style I feel like people are staring, and that my friends and family are gonna judge me (actually my family does judge me, that's common in them). But I look better on those clothes, that's why I bought them. So I just stopped thinking about what they may be thinking, and just focus on how f*cking hot I look on those clothes.
Just do that, look into the mirror before you go out and just think about how hot you look on those clothes. Wear whatever you want, force yourself to wear that, that way you'll get used to it and stop thinking about others, cause actually, people don't give a shit about what you're wearing, it's all in your head.1

Yes, I've definitely felt like that. Funny enough, the last time I felt like that was when debating whether or not to wear a pair of thigh-high socks very similar to the ones you posted.
It was for a friend's going away party, and I knew the socks would go super well with a particular dress but.. I opted not to wear the socks. Felt like it would make the outfit way too racy. Make me seem like an attention-whore. A week or two after that, there was another get-together for a friend's birthday. I was wearing a dress again, and was like f it. I'm gonna wear them this time. Nothing attention-seeking about wearing an outfit inspired by countless super cute ones I see on pinterest!
Needless to say, the socks were a hit. I got a ton of compliments on them, from friends and of course my boyfriend. Looked great on pictures, and I felt good after a bit too. I realized it's not good to let other people's potential opinions of how you look, whether it be outfit, hair styles, whatever, affect your choices. Nobody should judge on things like that. If it makes you feel good, it's none of their business.2
