Do you ever feel fat? NO?! Me either.
Just kidding. The other day I was walking around in pants that were too tight, paired with a top I kept readjusting, and I was miserable. I couldn’t stop giving myself dirty looks and there was no controlling my scathing inner-dialogue. Finally I stopped and said out loud, “Either shut-up or go change your damn clothes.” Well, excuse me. “Ok…” I responded to myself. I then went and found a new outfit and felt much better the rest of the day.
That seems SO simple right? But sometimes when we’re feeling fat, whether we’re getting our periods (cough cough) or because we had a wild weekend at the bakery, or just because we are in general too hard on ourselves, it’s impossible to find anything to wear. That’s why I find it helpful to have a few no-brainers that I can throw on to make myself feel a bit better. And some weeks that means I wear the same thing over and over and over. And who cares?! It’s not like were in high school and the mean girls are going to make fun of you or call you smelly.
So for the next few Fridays I’m going to share with you my thoughts on What to Wear When You’re Feeling Fat.
But I’d like to throw this out there, you’re probably not fat. So notice how I say FEELING fat. Keep in mind it’s a feeling, not a state of being. And if you do need to lose a few pounds these tips will help you get dressed in the meantime. I’m not at my thinnest right now, but I’m kind of busy focusing on other things, so I’ve decided to get over it. I’m not a fitness blog. I’m a feel-good-about-yourself-and-be-sassy & crafty blog. So let’s get sassy.
A chambray is my favorite thing to put on when I’m feeling portly!
A chambray easy to layer, and it looks cute with skirts, lots of styles of pants, or worn over a dress. With high-waisted pants and dresses I leave the last buttons undone and tie mine up around my waist. Yes, like I’m Ally McBeal. I have the one from Urban Outfitters and I love it.
I also recommend a chambray to new moms! They are easy to nurse in, and conceal your huge rack quite nicely. As you can see, I wear mine all the time!
Do you have a chambray? In my opinion it’s a very affordable must-have.
I’m excited to share this What to Wear When You’re Feeling Fat series with you! Let me know if you have any suggestions!
And remember, you’re beautiful.
