With my weight loss, my style of clothing has definitely changed. I'm no longer afraid to wear skinny jeans and I'm wearing more than plain leggings. I've even decided to start wearing jeggings (bought my first pair yesterday during my shopping adventures). So, let me tell you a little something about the jeggings, since I am just under 5'4", I have to get them altered. Well, I was afraid to buy them because I didn't want to mess them up. A few weeks ago, I found someone that could alter them correctly, so now I will be buying more. Another thing I have embraced is that I can wear print bottoms. I pay attention to what other people wear, not to necessarily follow their style but because I just like clothes and I like to see what people pair together. Well, I see more fuller plus divas wearing print and if it is done correctly, they look awesome in their ensemble. In other words, they gave me the encouragement, in their own way, for me to break out of my shell.
I admit, there are some days that I am really feeling myself now. It didn't used to be like that. However, there is nothing wrong with me being confident. I spent so many years hiding myself, but I'm so ready to explore what life has to offer me, in my own way. I love life and I refuse to let my size keep me from it anymore. I'm not perfect, but my imperfections make me the best me that I can possibly be. I'm alright with that. The best part is now, that I have clothes to match that personality.
