Dress: Forever 21 // Shoes: ZooShoo // Bag: JustFab // Sunnies: Old Navy //
So the story about this dress is actually kinda funny. I bought it last summer, and it has been sitting in my closet with the tag on it ever since. It was one of those that looked REALLY good on the Forever 21 model, then when I got it and tried it on, I felt like a whale. Honestly, sometimes it really freaks me out to wear something skin tight like this because of a) my stomach, and b) my booty. You see, I have this amazing ability to literally look pregnant even if I just eat a piece of bread or something. So when that happens, it almost forces me to play the role of a prego just so I'm not embarrassed of the fact that yes, this is indeed my belly that doesn't have a baby in it. It's just ma' belly.
Then one day I put said dress back on again and thought, "Why has it taken me so long to wear this?"
As women, we have this uncanny ability to get inside our heads and convince ourselves that something doesn't look good, or that we don't look good enough. But today I slipped on this fab dress, and convinced myself that I look great and that, made me feel oh-so-great. And man, was I missing out all last summer, because this dress is awesome. The floral, along with the peter pan collar, make it so it looks amazing all on its own.
Oh, and can you tell I'm obsessed with this new bag of mine?! It is pure, salmon-colored goodness. A bright, fun bag is seriously essential this summer and I'm loving this one. Happy Thursday, friends! Almost Friday! Woohoo!
