firstly, remember i’m doing a giveaway! it closes at the end of today, so if you want to be one of 3 in with the chance to win a notebook and collage made by me, just read this post and comment. good luck!
this is my typical around the house or just ‘let’s wear whatever i first pick up from the chair of clothes’ sort of outfit. about as casual as i get really! ofcourse if i’m just in the house i won’t be wearing lipstick, but i happened to have put some on before i took these. i have actually worn this exact combination of clothes when i go into town or something too though, as it’s really comfortable and easy to layer if i want to. if you’ve ever seen me about you might know i wear this skirt quite a lot.
i’m not a tshirt person at all and will only wear tshirts i love. this is one of them! talking of tshirts, i love this one from h&ms recent ‘conscious’ collection. ever so pretty.
i think i only have a couple tshirts, which i feel is like nothing compared to the ..however many most people have! most of the time i wear dresses, so i don’t need them, or if i’m wearing a skirt i much prefer blouses or thin jumpers/sweaters. i’m not sure if that’s the right word for what i’m talking about. anyway…
as much as i love this cardie, it has no buttons and i always have to wear it open, which is a bit annoying when it’s chilly.
‘sew buttons on!’ i hear you shout ..alas i cannot as, thanks to my boobs, can barely pull it over them.
now, i hate the labelling of body shapes, but i must admit it’s easy if you’re trying to explain quickly to someone. as i’m slightly hourglassy (booby and hippy with a smaller waist) as well as short i find it hard finding clothes that i both like and fit me.
i like fitted clothes and so if i can find something that fits over my chest it’s often WAY too big for my waist and/or my hips too depending on the shape of the clothing. or i find something that fits perfectly around my waist and hips but is way too small in the chest and squashes me (never a good look). makes certain styles of tops and dresses a total nightmare.
it’s taken a long time to get there, but i love my body (aside from my bingo wings) and have no reason to feel ashamed of it or change it. if that means making extra effort to find clothes that fit well, so be it.
