Body positive + tassels!

Monday, August 7, 2017

As with lots of people I have struggled with my body image.  I have had personal struggles with being too thin and now being at the heaviest I have ever been.  I am not a size 2 or 4 but rather in the
range of 6-10, and I have finally accepted that my body is just that "MY BODY".  Instead of focusing on the things I dislike I have started focusing on the things I love.  Instead of criticizing myself or areas of my body, I look for ways to either flatter or help improve those areas.

My ideal image of myself is still a work in progress, and I still have days where I throw everything into a pile on the floor saying I have nothing to wear.  But my good days out number the bad.  Dresses are definitely my comfort zone, because let's be honest they are easy and can really hide a lot.  Thats why this outfit that is a far cry from a dress is so exciting to me.  It is out of my norm but it totally makes me feel awesome, even though it shows the areas of my body I dislike the most.

Isn't it weird how powerful clothing can be?  A simple garment can transform your entire attitude and change the way you carry yourself.  So for me instead of hiding my arms and thighs I decided to flaunt them with fitted jeans and a sleeveless top.  I was actually surprised how confident I felt.  Maybe its because I have been going to the gym 4 days a week and eating right or maybe its because I quit caring what others would think about my not so perfect body, because chances are I am going to be way harder on myself than an outsider.

I guess the point I am trying to make is be confident in being you!  I know somedays are harder than others, but I guarantee you that even the most perfect of specimens have their insecurities!

I hope you have a wonderful Monday!  Let's start this week off right with the cutest most affordable tassel top that is not to be missed!
