Casual Friday: Free Your Mind

TGIF all!

If you’ve been following me for a while or are new to the blog (WELCOME!!!)  it’s clear I’m a lover of stripes. I used to follow all those “fashion rules” that said curvy women should avoid wearing stripes because they would make you look bigger. Sometimes I would want to break the rule but I was too afraid of drawing attention to myself.  Once I decided to free myself from these rules, stripes were no longer taboo anymore.  I slowly eased into it by pairing them with “safe” pieces like jeans.  As time passed, I upped the ante and now I have striped dresses, skirts, etc. I guess the moral of the story is we shouldn’t limit ourselves, period. sometimes as women  we get so caught up on what others think we deny ourselves the right to just be. For years I used to think I was too fat to travel, so I didn’t go anywhere.   I stifled my love for travel for years until one day I said “fuck it!”, booked a flight and haven’t looked back since!

    Super cute dress which looks great on you! Glad you have stopped following the stupid “rules”. And thinking you were “too fat to travel” – that just makes me sad. Glad you got over that one too. Love your blog. Keep up the good work!

    Great dress! Kinda reminds me of Vivienne Westwood.

    Love the dress, and the manicure, too — it’s a nice touch to really stick it to the ‘rulemakers’. Forget them! And I can totally commiserate about thinking I was too fat to travel — glad to know I wasn’t the only one. My slimmer friends just never understood that one.
