i am trying to feel more comfortable in tighter clothing. let me clarify...tighter tops. not that i want to wear belly bearing tight shirts...but i am trying to force myself a little bit out of my comfort zone when it comes to dressing up. after having two kids, tight shirts just aren't part of my sartorial repertoire, and i am trying to go for the "you work hard on your health and fitness, you should be happy with your body" sort of attitude. it's slow coming.
i am not writing this to get compliments, i am just trying to tell you my thought process for buying this dress. for some reason, even though it's super loose on the top, i somehow feel like it's getting me one step closer to wearing more form fitting tops. who knows. i don't even know if this post makes sense. basically i just want to say to everyone, love your body for what it is and show it off every once in a while. no matter what size you are, how long your legs are, how big your hips are, you are beautiful.
you will probably still never see me wearing a super tight top. and if you do, it probably means i didn't have to sit down all day. however, this dress is definitely out of my comfort zone, and i wore it anyways. and not only did i just wear it, but i wore it to celebrate my birthday, and i went dancing...i went dancing at a club full of 21 year olds, and i was ok with it (even though i am old enough to be their mother)!
do you have any items in your closet that are out of your comfort zone? i say we start a "wear something you want but don't feel comfortable normally wearing" day. of course, we'd have to come up with a better name.
