Every now and then I try to branch out of my comfort zone with clothes. I’ve done the bare arms thing, did a swim suit post (hopefully, bikini post one day!) and today I’m tackling my stomach. It’s another life long insecurity of mine but I wholeheartedly LOVE it when plus size bloggers show off their Visible Belly Outline (I think it’s called VBO in the body positive community?) so here I am making baby steps in this skirt that’s been hiding at the back of my closet. I scroll through my Instagram feed that is filled with so many awesome fat babes in bodycon outfits and it has kind of normalized visible bellies, lumps and bumps, and other body parts that we’re supposed to camouflage and “flatter”. Like I said, baby steps- the skirt isn’t body con but I hated how it looked on me because my stomach sticks out. I did not like these photos, I was awkward and uncomfortable but I’m a work in progress and just like my arms, I will embrace my stomach too.
This is just a quick outfit post, we snapped these photos on my way to an Iftar so I was really focused on being comfortable and being able to hide a giant food baby (the food was so good!). It’s really hot here but I’m being stubborn with my bomber jacket obsession. I scored one on sale from Dorothy Perkins (seen here) and I’ve been in love ever since, and then I really wanted a pink one- you know how it goes. It’s a super easy way to instantly make an outfit trendy!
