So I recently gained like 8 pounds. Well maybe "recently" isn't entirely accurate, since Christmas let's say.
Now I am usually ridiculously hard on myself about my weight, but this time I kind of just let it slide. I haven't wasted much time worrying about it or starting in on this vicious cycle of self-loathing that sometimes I tend to do. I've kind of just accepted that my bum and thighs have filled out a little bit, and at 24, that's probably completely normal. Besides, I weigh the least when I'm unhappy, so I can't really complain too much... :o)
But now that it's getting hotter and my outfits will need to get correspondingly smaller, I'm starting to get a little bit insecure.
I mean I put on these shorts and wondered, "should I actually go out in public in these?"
But it is such a long walk from where I park to the lab, that unless I am fine with being a sweat-soaked mass of fussiness by the time I get there, Imma need to show some skin.
My main reason for photographing this outfit today, although I'm pressed for time, is just to try and see if it is offensive for my newly thicker bottom half to be showcased thusly...
Meh, I'm sure it's fine. I'm also sure that no one give a shit what I look like from the waist down.
Like a wise woman I once knew said, "I can't see behind me and see how fat my ass looks, so why should I waste time worrying about it?"
Shirt: Thrifted Ecote
Cami: Express circa 2002
Shorts: Urban Outfitters (Nom de Plume)
Sun Glasses: Forever 21
So I am still ridiculously burned on my back, a little tiny bit on my chest and all over my bum, so bras, form-fitting shirts and rigid denim were completely out of the question.
I have to say that this outfit is soft and comfy and probably the most perfect post-sunburn outfit I've ever concocted!
Sorry if I seemed whiny about the whole weight thing...
Twas not my intention, I just wanted to mention it since it was on my mind, anyway, have great Wednesdays anyone who sees this!
