So it's no secret I've put on some weight. About 45 lbs to be exact.
Now I know I'm not morbidly obese or anything, but I feel yucky and tired and most of my clothes don't fit right anymore. I'm not complaining and I'm definitely not fishing for compliments...I'm just being honest where I'm at and wanting to share a few tips how I've changed my wardrobe up a little to better suit my new body type. Maybe this will help a sister out.
You see, I love little tees and cardis a lot....
I love to wear them with skirts, with jeans, with my converse, with everything.
But the problem is I now have this roll around my middle that a cardi no longer hides.
I know some of y'all know what I'm talking about.
Anyways, any time Nick goes shopping with me and he picks out stuff he likes for me to wear, it's always these long tunic tops that I kinda don't like much. I would wear them for him but hate them. I loved them on other people but on me I always felt a little frumpy.
But now that my shape has kinda shifted...all to the middle...I was ready to try anything to make me feel cute again. So recently while in my favorite store, Dirt Cheap, I came across some of these tops and decided to give them a second chance. And guess what?...
I really feel cute when I wear them. Bam.
I would list where the clothes/shoes are from but all of these clothes were either thrifted or bought at Dirt Cheap (which is a salvage store chain in the south).
I highly recommend a handsome little grandson dude on your hip. They are the best accessory evah!
This is my dressed up version of this top....
And this is my casual version with jeans and flip flops.
My leather cuff you see in several of these outfits is made by my friend Becky. You can check out her blog here. Her shop is open at limited times so you gotta snag one when you can. I pretty much wear mine with everything.
Of course....I still wear my cardis and converse. I have just had to buy a few bigger ones!
But when Dirt Cheap has Target cardis for $1.00..... I let myself splurge. ;)
What about you? Have you had to find yourself changing things up in your closet to better flatter your body type? I'd love any tricks and tips you may have up your sleeve.
ps. stay tuned for a little something me and my girls are doing to get fit.
There may or may not be some competing going on amongst the Holden girls.
