I'm about to be really "shady boots" on this post.
Style bloggers don't always get it right.
They don't always look perfect.
They are not always SNATCHED to CAPACITY.
These pictures are my proof.
I thought long and hard before I clicked "send" on this post.
This is me being real.
And admitting that I get it wrong sometimes.
If you recall, I admit in previous posts, that I am going through a bit of a style
crisis evolution these days.
That whole postpardum (I'm 6months postpardum) thing really can affect not just your body but your style.
I've been really trying to figure out what needs to be done for me to feel good about the clothes that I have.
Well this was NOT one of those days.
To be honest, I was excited about this outfit.
I was excited because I liked that it was simple but still had
my type of visual interest patterns.
My husband took my pics and said ever so sweetly,
"Babe, I don't think you're going to like these pictures because of how the skirt is highlighting your stomach."
(Side Note: After YEARS of training, he has caught on! He knows what to look for when he takes my pictures!! #proudwife)
(Dress: ASOS; Jacket: Gap (so old); Shoes/cap/purse: Zara)
I looked at the pics and cringed. I instantly knew that I wasn't going to post this outfit.
Fast forward a style meltdown, a much needed pep talk with my style pimp Juanette, and a little swig of "Reiko, snap out of it," I decided that I will show when it doesn't go right.
Because that's most of us most days.
First of all, I AM wearing Spanx. #womp
Secondly this pattern is not flattering to my problem area(tummy).
Finally, the dress is too big in the wrong areas.
It's too loose which makes it look more like a skirt set then a dress.
I am never one to beat down myself because of weight and I don't want to be "that girl."
That girl who says, "WHEN I lose some weight, I'm gonna dress so cute."
I want my style to be flattering and "me" at all times.
I missed the mark on this one.
And guess what.
I'm not Kim Kardashian #shadenoshade
And that's okay.
I will live.
And start over again.
Because that's how real G's move.
(Makes no sense but I just wanted to end the post that way)
So there you have it.
Things that bloggers never say....
