You Are Fabulous Just the Way You Are

What's that one thing about yourself that you are super insecure about?? We all have that one thing or maybe several things about ourselves and our bodies that we wish we could change. I know I have about half a dozen of them. But over the years I've learned to accept myself just the way I am. I used to worry that people thought I was ugly after being picked on as a kid for looking "different". Thank goodness that blogging has taught me that beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. Since the holidays my "new thing" is that I'm a little plumper than I was last summer. Oh, how I used to stress out so much over a slight weight gain. I no longer stress out about not being a size zero. Instead, when my clothes start to fit a bit snug, I do my best to eat healthier and work out until they start fitting well again. 

This past weekend I did something I haven't done in almost a year... I went to see a movie. I'm totally not a movie buff and hate that movie tickets are so expensive in New York City these days. Plus I never really have the time. But I just had to catch I Feel Pretty. I'm always in the mood for a good laugh but this picture (yes, I still call movies this, hehe) had such a strong message that I'm not sure if my fellow male moviegoers understood it. We have to start accepting ourselves just the way we are. Because we're all fabulous in our own way. 

I was also promoted to write about this perhaps, touchy subject because I have a pile of clothes that don't quite fit including this amazing white linen dress from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Smock Walker Vintage. I haven't quite shed my holiday weight. But I'm just so gaga over this dress that I had to make it work somehow. I'm so grateful that it's a button down so I was able to wear it open over my hips since they are so massive these days, lol. I love my hips!! Check out my outfit details below:
