Current Favorite Outfits

Well, it’s happened. Most of my jeans are feeling snug. I can still get them buttoned, but I’m definitely not comfortable wearing them all day long, especially sitting down. If this had happened to me even a year ago, it would have triggered a downward spiral of hateful thoughts & attempting the latest fad diet. It would have caused me to spend time in front of the mirror, pinching my stomach & thighs, wishing them away. It would have made me go to the gym, but for all the wrong reasons.

I choose to be gentle with myself. I choose patience & understanding. I choose acceptance & dare I say, love. I choose to focus on my accomplishments, the things I’m thankful for, & the things my body allows me to do. I want to keep taking care of myself, body & soul.

Am I drinking enough water? Am I moving my body & eating food that fuels it? Am I doing things that makes me smile? If I can answer yes to those questions on most days, that’s enough for me right now. There are days in this quarantine that maybe the answer is no, but all I can do is accept it and try again tomorrow.

If you’re feeling down about your body today, what’s a step you can take to lift yourself up? Today for me, it was as simple as trying on a few of my favorite outfits. These outfits make me feel confident & help me to embrace my body!

This jumpsuit is so cozy, I haven’t wanted to take it off! I’ve been styling it with white sneakers & a denim jacket.
I LOVE kimonos, especially with a pretty floral pattern like this one! This exact one is sold out right now but here is a similar one.
I’ve been on the hunt for a tank similar to this one! I love it paired with my denim shorts, there are old from Madewell.
Loft has been having such great sales lately! I snagged this short sleeved cardigan for $8 the other day. Keep an eye out for their sales!
I’ve had this dress (that I obviously did not iron lol) in the teal color for awhile & HAD to get another color. I wear this all the time & love the green color for summer!
This dress is one of my favorite Amazon finds, ever! I love the sleeves & the tie is so flattering.

It’s not easy, but we can learn to accept & love our bodies at any size, shape, or stage of our lives. If you’re struggling, I’m sending you a big hug!

Talk to you soon,

Danielle
