Feels Good











I've been having some severe body image issues this week and Thursday morning almost aborted the whole blazer week thing in a fit of "I loathe myselfness".
But I am pretty damn stubborn and decided I was sticking it out.
Because.
I threw these pieces together before work and was pleased with the outcome.
In fact, I felt great all day both physically and mentally and for the first time all week enjoyed taking outfit photos.
Which is probably why I uploaded a ton of them.
Who knew that wearing a little mini when you've physically felt anything but mini could turn your mood around?

It's the little things that surprise me....

boyfriend blazer: ny&co
denim button up: jcrew
cargo vest: h&m
skirt: express
tights: target
shoes: style&co
bracelets: jcrew
watch: citizen
rings: (with stone) gifted to me when I was 15 & target
earrings: ny&co
sunglasses: adrienne vittadini

  5. Hey hun,

    You look stunning and as I read your post I wondered whether I'm having body image issues, or at least I was having issues. I always think that shopping helps, because you get to think properly through your look and body image. That skirt is perfect for the Winter/Summer transition.
    Thanks for your lovely comment, white and a tan would be amazing, but I don't tan at all :(

    Love Free x

  15. This is why I love you...I would NEVER think to put together these pieces...but they look amazing!!!

    You are my inspiration.

    And I totally agree about the "wearing a mini when you don't feel it cure". For some weird reason- it does work. But I don't do it enough.

  17. Awww you look great! I love how all these layers make the outfit so cute. It is freezing this weekend so the thought of layers is so appealing. it's freezing rain right now. I think we jinxed it not wearing jackets last weekend!
