Love in the air
The sun’s out and I couldn’t be any happier! I know, I know, here I go again with talking about the weather (I swear I’m not this boring), but in all seriousness the weather really does affect your mood. Since my winter blues has been fading out, it’s been all about enjoying the warm sunshine and bringing back some fun pieces in my wardrobe.
I hate to be Captain Obvious but it’s 2017. Body shaming or thinking your appearance isn’t good enough
is a thing of the past. If someone tells you otherwise, and like my mother would say, “to hell with them”. I also know that it’s easier said than done since we’re all still human beings with natural born instincts and inner securities. In all honesty, I’ve been tired of trying to live up to a standard and told myself: It’s time to take the challenge and step outside of your fashion comfort zone for a change.It’s no secret that a lot of women feel some insecurity when it comes to their stomach. Since it’s biologically where we carry the most weight it’s not always the easiest or fastest to tone up for many women — not to say it’s impossible, but it does take a lot of work to get a flat pack and maintain it. I’m totally for self-improvements and having the choice to do whatever you want with your body; and I truly believe any efforts to eating healthy and staying active deserve an applause no matter what level, shape, or form you’re in. That’s why I decided that I need to acknowledge my own efforts and embrace my temple — in other words my body. We’ve all wasted enough time worrying about these demons in our heads telling us otherwise — not to sound preachy, but now is the time to change our thinking.
The vision of crop & denim
You might have seen me wearing crop tops before, but as sad as it’s going to sound, I’ve never dared go out for long in public wearing one. Aside from the beautiful rose embroidery detailing, I specifically chose this Zaful
spring piece to kickstart a new me and style. I’m usually a basics/staples kind of girl, but I do think every now and then it’s great to have some fun items to have in your closet that can spice things up, while still be versatile with the rest of your wardrobe. I’ve already been imagining how I can mix and match this white two piece to go with many different looks. Going back to having staples in your wardrobe — the one item that I had on the top of my wishlist was an oversized jean jacket — my wish finally came true! And if you’re still missing some denim to throw over your shoulders, I suggest you go and get yourself a jean jacket now. The looks are endless that you won’t have any regrets.
Have you ever challenged any of your body insecurities with fashion?
