Being Brave in Shorts





Today I decided to be brave with my shorts. I tucked in my shirt and wore a belt. and this left me to let the world see my "gut" I have always been the type to never show it off. I always wear shirts that disguise it. but today I was like I don't care...I'm going for it. I mean did have my times when I sucked it in so it didn't look to bad. But I must say i loved walking around in this outfit.

I threw the vest on to make the outfit look more complete. I kept the jewelry and things simple. I just put in the big ghetto girl hoops and these absolutely adorable sandals (that kill my feet btw)

And? so what!

Like many plus size people, I've had my fair share of being bullied in my day. pretty much all through elementary and middle school I was picked on and made fun of! I have always been plus size and i have come to the conclusion that my body will not change. I am always gonna be on the bigger side of life. so instead of trying to fight it, I EMBRACE it! granted it is not easy and I deal with a lot of stares and pointing, and people that think I shouldn't wear certain clothes. My mother is one such person. But we're from two different generations so i deal with it.

When I got to high school I got to a point where I realized I can't let people hurt me anymore.  And even now in college I'm really at a point where my confidence is soring. but don't get me wrong I have my days when I wish I was smaller, or I'm not feeling myself. and there are definitely times when I'm around my bestie or some of my friends here at school who have these amazing bodies, I get self conscience.

But I have to keep pushing. Ladies this is for you, I know it's hard sometimes. But we have to stand strong and always remember.

If you don't like how I look or what I have on, you are more than welcome to not look at me and keep it movin. cause in my mind all i can say is

"And? I'm fat so what!"

Dark but Happy





This is one of my favorite outfits, but really didn't get to wear it as much as I would've liked. But i actually acidentally found this outfit, but yet again playing dress up! It just makes me feel super sexy lol It's a lil on the dark side but with a smile everything is different. the wrap cardigan is from H&M the skirt is from forever21 and the boots are from Lane Bryant!

A lil something old!





These are pretty old pic i took during christmas break. The shorts i very rarely wear because they aren't very flattering. But i was trying something different. what do you think?

Fierce in the Office










Forget business casual...its business fierce! So today I don't have class until 1:30 and in the process of cleaning my room, I thought of an awesomely cute outfit. I finished cleaning up and threw it on and immediately went to take pics. Now personally I think it's a lil to loud to wear to work, but you get the idea. I'm sure if I had on a lil less loud of a skirt I would rock this!

Ruffled Shirt- Rainbow
Cardigan & belt- Lane Bryant
Skirt- Wetseal
Wedges-Torrid

Keds and over sized sweaters








just having a little fun. The dance team I'm on took pics for the yearbook and we had to wear the same outfit we wore for our homecoming dance. We went with the 80's theme, some of us wore the big sweaters, tights, and keds. and the rest were dressed like the fly girls from the show In Living Color. So after the photo shoot with them, I took some pics for myself!

Fairytale Romper






Ok so I did an early post on rompers. Cause you guys know I love rompers. This romper I brought from Wetseal. and I have to say I absolutely love it. It is a little big around the top, but it is awesome nonetheless.

A friend of mine were just talking about rompers the other day, and how she was looking for a really cute romper but has trobule finding one that is flattering. I understand how she feels cause rompers can be tricky. and its one of those things that you have to try one. I got lucky with this one, cause it happen to fit pretty well.

sooooo yea!

Socks & Heels






having fun with my clothes after class. This is the 1st time I decided to take pics outside my room. I must admit it was quite awkward, cause I really didnt want people to see me takings pics. so I went behind one of the dorms that we dont use ne more. lol

Dope on the way 2 church


So i wore this church. it actually took me a while to come up with this look. Cause I was struggling to get the shirt to look right and i didnt want to look like i had gained 10 pounds. But after looking at the pictures I'm officially in love with this outfit. The skirt is a size too big so I had to use a safety pin to hold it up.

and random sidenote, I'm in love with pink lips right now!

LBD in class




so its a pretty cloudy day in ATL, but rather humid. I originally wanted to wear my romper, but it wasnt hot enough for that. so while laying in bed before getting up for class i thought about this dress. I got it about 2 years ago from Torrid and very rarely wore it. so today was a good!

What do you think?
