Looking For Something?

Well I’m using the same inspiration but remixing the patterns. SWAP! I’m sorry, but I’m ready for sweaters and I’m basically in love with anything mustard colored and stripey. SHOCKER.
Indulge me, will you?
Here’s What I’m Wearing:
Crappy photo quality probably makes it hard to tell but those jeans are black. And so are the stripes.
Sweater: Gap Outlet
Shirt: Merona for Target
Jeans: Gap Premium Flare
Earrings: Another mom hand me down. My mom rules!
Another thing this photo doesn’t tell you? Those jeans are in a size that I haven’t worn since junior high. WRAP YOUR BRAIN AROUND THAT, because I’m still trying. Seeing as I’m right about to be 33 (yep, that’s 20 years when you do the math!) the concept may take me a while.
I mentioned when I started this project that the purpose was to get a little more comfortable with my body since it has changed so dramatically over the last year. (I’m so close to 100 lbs lost I can taste it!) There are super awesome things about losing weight,yes. But as counter intuitive as it sounds, body confidence can be a bit of a struggle when you go through that much change this quickly. I’ve been trying to find an eloquent way to explain that for week, but AndreAnna nailed this feeling in a post this week and I would highly suggest checking it out.
Getting back in touch with who I am, how I look, what I love and how I want the world to perceive me were major goals of this little project. 2/3 of the way there I am starting to feel like it has been worth it. So thank you for letting me experiment here. For your positive feedback. For your suggestions. For your support.
They help a girl out you know, and it is appreciated!
