FINDING THE RIGHT PIECES TO COMPLIMENT
Photos Laguna Beach CA.
Everyone goes through moments where they are feeling unhappy with their body; I know it’s not just me. So finding the right pieces to compliment your shape certainly boosts confidence, and we all need an injection of that.
My prior pregnancy clothes have been hibernating in my closet for what seems like a decade, but really only a year; and finally I have just started to go through each piece to see if there is any hope left in trying to squeeze back into those super cute jeans that fit before my body decided to grow a little human for the second time. Oh how painful this can be, and yet we still hold on to the possibility that one day, surely soon, oh so very soon I will wake and find that a little fairy came and took all my baby weight and left me with a glorious set of abs..
But the reality is, it took 9 months to grow that little bundle of joy, and therefore it will most likely take (at least) 9 months to recover. So rather than cry over the fact that I’m in that ‘between’ stage where all my maternity clothes are looking awkward to wear, and my ‘one day these will definitely fit’ clothes are still hibernating, I hit the road in sunny California in search of a few pieces to complement my curvy figure.
I am in love with the blue and white pinstripes look, and the saying that vertical strips helps slim a curvy figure isn’t always true, I guess a bit like the ‘i before e except after c’ nonsense; but I did find this really cute Bardot shirt-dress from Top Shop which I fell in love with. I’m tall so obviously there is no way I could pull this off as a dress, so I paired it with the trending cropped trousers and flat black shoes; I definitely felt confident and more like my happy self. What a super find!
