This dainty black lace maxi skirt has actually been waiting to be worn for almost a year now. I had been planning to wear it out ever since I bought it, but somehow things just got on top of it and I forgot. Does that mean I should stop shopping and then dumping clothes in the back of my closet? Probably yes not.

Would you believe I got a double thumbs-up when I wore this out last Sunday? A girl actually caught my eye, pointed up and down the outfit and with a huge smile, gave me a double thumbs-up. Double, you guys!!! I think this calls for a celebration. For a girl whose wardrobe used to consist only of loose tops and baggy pants, and even begged a bride to have all her bridesmaids wear long dresses so she doesn't have to show her legs, this is quite a feat. So if you think you're a big girl and therefore cannot possibly show your limbs without getting stared or laughed at, change your perception! When you start accepting you for you, you find that others will too. (O, that rhymes!)

Couldn't have gotten this far on my journey to self-love and size acceptance without your support! Seriously, I couldn't have done it without you.

I think an occasional pat on the back AND a giveaway is in order. What say you?

Hugs,
The Belated Bloomer

  8. AWww, I love this encouraging and positive post! I think all girls go through some sort of insecurity in their lives that challenge their self acceptance. It's great to see how you've embraced yourself and have seen things from a new perspective. I think you look GREAT and would give you a quadruple thumbs up if I had 4 hands. Actually, I can! 2 thumbs up, and 2 toe thumbs up :)

  15. I can't wear short skirts right now because of the scars from the mosquito bites I had during our last trip to the beach. I always wear pants because I don't know if I can pull off a maxi/long skirt. But you inspired me! Love your outfit :)

  16. Love that you are so open about accepting yourself, as I've also struggled with some of the same problems. Your confidence makes you glow, and the skirt is gorgeous!
