Until recently, I hadn’t worn a skirt in at least 5 years. My midsection is where I carry most of my weight and it makes me self-conscious to wear pants/skirts. I mostly stick to dresses-with empire waists or skater dresses as they flatter my body type. But this summer, I wanted to love my body, flaws and all. Also-there are way too many cute skirts out here for me to worry about my pooch being on display. So, skirts have made their way into my outfit rotation.
I’ve been pairing them with graphic tees, camis, and my summer staple- a denim vest. I’m glad I decided to try something out of my norm. It adds another dimension to my wardrobe and wearing them has made me feel more positive about my body. It highlights the part of my body I’m most self-conscious about, but I still feel cute and confident when I wear them. Who knows!? Maybe I’ll be wearing jeans next!
Probably not anytime soon. Baby steps. 😉
