TGIF everyone!!! Hope you have great plans for tonight and the weekend. I was off today so I have a three day weekend! Yay!!!
My outfit today is inspired by an amazing blogger LuAnne (www.weeshasworld.com). About a week ago I was feeling rather daring so I ordered a pair of purple skinny jeans from Macy’s. When my jeans arrived last Friday afternoon , I instantly began to regret my decision. The old negative thoughts came rushing back once I tried them on…”Youre too big to wear these jeans”..”My ass is too fat for these”…”I’m too old to wear this!”. Next thing I knew I was putting them back in the wrapping to return them. I decided to think about whether to keep them or not. Since I subscribe to LuAnne’s blog, I saw that she wrote a post about being plus size and wearing purple skinny jeans! Reading her words inspired me to stop tearing myself down. I put the jeans back on but this time I didn’t skewer myself. After a second look, I realized I looked good in these jeans! The jeans aren’t tight or uncomfortable. They stretch so I’m not confined or stiff. The color isn’t too bright or dark. I felt so good about myself in these jeans that I wore them to work on Tuesday (I’m not in court on this day, so I can wear jeans). I got so many compliments from various people. Tamera (aka Le Mer! LOL) took my picture for Pose and my outfit was chosen to be featured! If I had listened to the negative thoughts I would’ve been taking two steps back. I can’t live my life worrying about what others may think or say. I wasted ALOT of my adult life doing this. Live YOUR life and LOVE who you are!
Thank you LuAnne for your post and inspiring women to love themselves no matter what! Have a great weekend!!!
