Purple Reign

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!!!

    Those are such cute jeans, I would have never forgiven you if you sent them back! You look lovely and I’m glad you’re not letting negativity tear you down 🙂

    Girl you look great in those jeans. They fit you great. I understand how you feel about negative comments but I realized I have to do me. We’re always going to have haters no matter what especially when you are looking and doing good. You are surely inspiring me to step out of my comfort zone of black clothing and wearing makeup. Love girl

    You look gorgeous. I have been seeing a lot of bright blue (which I love of course) this week so it is really nice to see some power purple. You own it.

    I like!! I have some purple skinnies from ASOS that I haven’t worn in ages. I am about to pull them out.

    You beat me to the punch!! LOL, I wanted the purple skinny jeans from Ol Navy, but they didn’t have them in my size. **This look is approved by Le Mer***

    I agree with everyone else. Stepping out in your purple jeans is awesome especially with those shoes! Remember purple is the color of royalty and you, my dear, are a queen! Do the damned thing!
