184.



Man, this week has been mad hectic for me. If you were following my twitter I tweeted about being in the emergency room. I still don't know what I have but thankfully it wasn't an aneurism or meningitis because I think I would've cried from stress.
Today I just went out to drop off some resumes despite feeling a bit ill, so this explains why I've been dressed up despite my health conditions. Anyway...







Top and Satchel Thrifted | Shoes and Trousers Forever 21 | Belt ASOS

These are one of those outfits where people would be like, "OH so unflattering... blah blah etc." Not like I care. You know we as a society should just stop caring about what people think; about us, about how we look, and about how we present ourselves. I think what helped me overcome my confidence hurdles was to start dressing for myself. No one else. Do not think about impressing anyone else, and dress to please yourself. Needless to say, I was pleased with this outfit. Yes, I may look "wider" but I'm fat so not like it matters anyways. The pictures do no justice to this top, it's an incredible thrift find... it's a silk blend oversized shirt, it's almost big enough on me to be a dress.

Sometimes I need a break from dresses and skirts, you know. Pants rule sometimes... sometimes. On another note, I also got a haircut if you guys noticed, no more fringe. I'll be growing it out! Hurray? Haha.

Hopefully I can squeeze in an outfit post before I go out to Northern Ontario to go camping.

Until next time.

  6. I completely agree with everything you said. Stripes may make me look a bit wider, but I don't particularly care. They're adorable, they make me happy, and they set the tone for my day, and in the end those are the only things that really matter to me.

    LOVE this outfit. Those shoe are fantastic!
