Sorry I am just this Feel Good Fashion post today! I’m a little late, obviously. I was in the shower yesterday morning when I realized I hadn’t written the post. Whoops.
I also realized I should probably mention what these posts are/are not, for those of you who haven’t been reading my blog a long time.
A little over a year ago, I took on a huge personal mission/goal to start dressing better and putting more effort into my appearance. I really found that when I was feeling good about my clothes and how I presented myself to others, it made my motivation to continue to lose weight that much stronger. I was tired of hating my body because I was not/am still not at my goal weight, and decided I wanted to “feel good” at any weight. I started documenting an outfit a week on the blog, just to keep myself accountable to this mission.
And it really has worked for me. I obviously can’t quantify the increase in confidence I’ve experienced over the last year + since I started doing this, but it’s been huge. I really urge people who are struggling with weight loss or confidence in general, to put a little more effort into their appearance, because I’ve seen such benefits with it.
This is NOT, nor will ever be a fashion blog. I’m just a simple girl trying to look a little more thrown together on a cheap budget and trying to navigate liking my body and feeling comfortable in it, no matter what size I am – nor how much weight I have left to lose.
Anyway – another week, another 5 outfits I could pick to show y’all. The one that probably made me feel the best was one containing colors I would usually not wear.
I pretty much never wear greens, yellows or golds. But I decided to get a little brave a few weeks ago while shopping for some new clothes for my internship and voila – I felt GREAT in them!
Here is where everything is from (and the approximate prices):
Like I said, I really loved this outfit and I loved wearing colors I don’t normally wear. They looked really good together and I was surprised all day!
I’ve also been wearing these little shoe lining socks (my favorites are from Hue that I got at Nordstrom Rack for $3 a pair). They have been making it SO much easier to walk around all day in flats and not get blisters or have my feet sweat to death.
I definitely recommend these!
So there you go, another week, another outfit down
