Here's a picture of what I was wearing:
|Shirt: gap outlet, Pants: marshalls, Shoes: Target|
I take pride in trying to look nice, no matter what my size. As I've talked about before, I've pretty much always struggled with my weight. I try really hard though to put an effort into what I wear and convey the message that I am confident. Because honestly, I know that beauty comes in all sizes.
I've seen what it looks like when a woman gives up on herself. I've seen the baggy clothes, the elastic waistbands, the major fashion faux-pas. And sometimes I see myself heading down that path. On days when I just feel like nothing looks right, sometimes I wish I could just wear a tent to cover it all up. But I also know that every time I wear something that I feel really good in, my attitude is different. My confidence shines through. I smile more (I know you find that hard to believe, Em).
Sometimes, it's nice to get a little reminder that people notice the effort I'm putting in to looking good. And today's fashion award did just that.
You look great my cousin!! I love your confidence and wish I had more of that.. It's true women regardless of size or age always find something negative about themselves. You don't really hear of men having this issue.. Or do they just secretly keep it to themselves?! Maybe another blog topic?;) lol.. I love and miss you!!!
Such an honest post! This is why I love your blog Erin. I definitely feel that way sometimes.. that I just want to put on a big hoodie sweatshirt & disappear. Sadly.. that is Not an option here in Dominica!
Isn't it so nice to receive random compliments? I love that your friend voiced the nice things that had gone through her mind about you. Cheers to you, and to feeling beautiful :)
