What I Wore-OVER It!

So friends, this is a little different kind of What I Wore situation. I was nearly deleting these pictures all together because like I feel every blogger I choose the pictures I feel best in and truthfully these pictures made me feel less than that. But instead I’ve decided to confront and confess all these silly little things that didn’t make me feel great about these pictures.

Gawsh, now this is not a pity party this is a party to say I am OVER IT! You read right! O-V-E-R! Pity parties are kind of one of my pet peeves in life and if you try to tell me about your body woes I will tell you to stop. And so in this post I am telling myself to stop.

I’ve been feeling not so great lately because I haven’t been working out due to a hectic schedule and eating poorly because of lots of fun functions and sadly this has me in a pity party of one…OKAY two…sorry BF. But I’m ending this party…I’m over it and working out again and feeling like me again.

Am I self conscious about the above? On some days, sure, but on most day I am completely not. I know that I am blessed beyond blessed to have the body I have and there is no reason for me to feel bad about it ever. And really there is absolutely nothing wrong with my body in these pictures, so voilá no reason not to post this outfit :).

I know friends we all have our moments of “woe is me”, but I hope you can step back and  appreciate your body. I know I needed to and did :).

Also can we take a closer look at my shoes?!?! Such a score from my fave people at Goodwill…ahem they were $7.99.

Have a wonderful wonderful Friday!

    Aww it’s so nerve racking posting outfit pics… people on the internet can be mean ;( I commend those who are brave enough to do it. You are a hottie so you have nothing to be embarrassed by! I’ve been 48 inches since middle school too 🙂 hehe

      That’s what I’m saying! I started running again last week and I felt 100% better 🙂 and it actually made me feel better about these pictures.

    I remember being so painfully shy when I was young, but blogging has helped me come out of my shell even posting photos and not caring about what others think, because of me embracing who I am and being comfortable with that! You are gorgeous lady, Yes, we all go through a few “woe is me” days! So glad that you appreciate your beautiful body. Love those shoes J! xx

      Truth! I honestly had no pictures of myself before blogging and I’m so thankful that I am documenting this time of my life. Embrace yo’self, friend you are beautiful and I feel like we all need to step back and know that there is nothing wrong with our bodies.

    A wonderful post. Thank you from a short torsoed sister. [I’m 62″ but only got there around age 17! the slowest growing female, besides two of my daughters, in the history of the world.]

      Yay short torsoed sister!!! High five and I hope your daughters learn to loooove love their body as well.

    It’s so interesting seeing posts like these – you are adorable and even when you labeled the things that you did, I still had a hard time seeing how they could be so. I remember trying on clothes with a few friends and we all came out of the dressing room at the same time – the most conventionally pretty and in shape of us all mentioned she didn’t like her legs – which seemed to be in earnest -, which prompted another friend to say, “Okay, now I know that every woman has a weird perspective about what they look like.”

    It’s just so strange what we focus on – and what everyone else sees instead.

    I’m also a shortie – 5’2″ in the house!

      It’s true! And if I’m being honest I have to constantly working on it and I wish I saw what so many people see in me. But I am really getting better at looking in the mirror and appreciating what I see and even liking it. I debated posting this because I really like to give a positive message and I’m literally putting red arrows on things I don’t like so I felt maybe it wasn’t quite right. BUT it’s really true that I took a second look at these pictures and felt silly for feeling there was something wrong with my body and I hope it inspires others to take that step back and get that clarity.

      And whoop whoop shorties in the house :D.
