Oh snap!!! Is she really wearing her arms AND back out?????? Proudly, the answer is yes!!!
This was my first time wearing my arms and back out without some type of cover up/shrug/scarf. For one, it was the beginning of summer so it was crazy hot and this outfit was too cute to have it covered up. Not only that, I felt good and I knew I looked good!!!!!
In all honesty, I purchased this outfit in 2012 and I hung it up in the back of the closet because I wasn’ t confident enough to wear it. A few weeks later, while organizing my summer clothes, I saw it and I moved it to the front of the closet. Then… I decided to rock it!
What a bold move! I’m so thankful for the mindset that I have now. As you can see, the decision to wear this jumper as confidently as I did took guts! Do I have the “perfect body”? No, and it doesn’t matter. However, what matters most to me is that I celebrate my curves!
Each time I step out of the house, I want to look like I took time with myself- “hair did, nails did, everything did” (insert laugh) – because I do. In essence, how I feel about my outward appearance is an expression of just how good I feel on the inside! This is tremendous progress and I am so thankful that I went through the process to get to this point in my life. I truly love the woman I see in the mirror!
In closing, I encourage my curvy sisters to take fashion risks and be confident with those decisions. As long as the outfit accentuates your curves, then I say go for it! So what you have some imperfections. Learn your own personal style so you can wear the clothes and the clothes not wear you!!!!!
