Okay, I seriously need this outfit. It looks great on her and WOW! I love the colors and the cut outs are adorable. It looks so breathable! The thing I hate about being a lovely lady with curves is that dresses either ride up under your boobs and make you look pregnant or they are a freaking tent with arm holes.
The one things that makes this outfit and this woman stand out, isn’t the print. It is her confidence. I love that she isn’t afraid of her body, she owns it.
So many of us, men and women, find ourselves standing in front of the mirror and hating what we see looking back at us. We forget the struggles that some of us physically are going through, we forget the emotional reasons that we have put on a few pounds. All we see is that we don’t measure up to the models wearing the clothes, the actors that we see, or the image that we believe we should strive to mold out bodies into.
I love this outfit and I love this girl.
What drew me to this article was that this beautiful woman’s photos were removed from Instagram when she, like thousands of other people on Instagram, posted a photo of herself and two other lovely young women. The photos were not topless, nude, vulgar, or anything more than the typical photo of three beautiful women in bathing suits.
But she didn’t take it lightly. She stood up not only for herself and her fantastic body, but she raised her voice for all of us who don’t fit into the Barbie box. She shared her story, she went to battle for all of us… and she won. Not only was her photo returned to Instagram, but she received national coverage of her story.
So please, go enjoy her blog and let her know that she is not alone.
