Lately, I have been learning to embrace my curves a bit more. I’m not really the kind of girl that loves have a curvy bottom half because I work my ass off to keep everything toned. It’s taken me awhile to accept that my body is MY body and other than keep it healthy, there’s really not much I can do to change it. With that in mind, I have been trying to be much nicer to myself when I look in the mirror. Instead of trying to harp on the negatives, I try to find three things that I like about what I see. Even though I have my not-so-confident days like everyone else, this has been helping me lately to accept myself for who I am and not strive to look like someone else. Now that I’m in my 30’s, I don’t want to hide myself away out of embarrassment, I want to celebrate my strength and how lucky I am to have the body that I do. First step in that direction? This body hugging denim skirt that seems to hug in all the right places. I’ll admit, I was a little self-conscious when I wore this but after receiving multiple compliments on my way to shoot this look, I noticed that I was holding my held a little higher and strutting instead of simply walking so I wouldn’t be noticed. Sometimes, all it takes is the right pieces of clothing to make you feel lucky to be YOU!
