Love thyself

Got a new pair of jeans, and suddenly I don’t know how to act

Finally got my hands on a pair of jeans I’ve been eyeing since Miles was but a fetus.

I also recently saw a post on Instagram that said something along the lines of, “Stop waiting until your body looks a certain way to wear the clothes you want.” This is easier said than done, coming from someone who’s dealt with various insecurities around my body for most of my life.

Fortunately for me, pregnancy and giving birth to a child really helped to shift my mindset around how I see/feel about my body. I wouldn’t say I’m “cured” of all insecurities, but I can honestly say that in some ways, I’ve never felt better in my own flawed; squishy skin.

I really love this outfit without the vest (and with, to be fair). However, in another life, I would have chosen the vest as a part of the outfit to hide anything I deemed to be a flaw, including my boobs, one of whom has decided that it’s outgrown the other—thanks, breastfeeding! This time though, the vest became a part of the outfit ‘cause I had to “tailor” these jeans myself, and let’s just say that I am not a seamstress.

Look, all of this is to say that I was feeling myself in this outfit. Also wear what you like!
