Here it is. My first post for the year that includes my body and all of it.
I’ve been run off my feet this past 12 months and my blog has suffered. It was never an intentional hiatus but this year I am making a conscious effort to get back into sharing my style and what makes me ‘tick’ again. Today I wore this beautiful ensemble (sans heels) for a day of running errands and some light thrifting. Jacob and I are heading up the coast this Friday for 2 weeks and in my suitcase I am taking some outfits I want to share on the blog. We’ll find some nice backdrops to share those with you guys because I am going to try my hardest to share my favourite looks.
I also feel like I should mention here that my body is changing and I am happy with how I am at this point in time.
My weight is fluctuating but I am getting back into a healthy routine and I am inspired by my beautiful friends (such as Nicola of the former blog Too Many Cupcakes) and my plans to be married next year so the extra 5-10kg (who’s counting?) I put on after my big loss will be gone before I know it. Not that my health and my size should matter to you. And if it does…buzz off!
I cannot believe how my style has changed and evolved over the past few months. This time last year I was sticking to my floaty shapes, avoiding pencil skirts and well, the thought of the “peplum” made me cringe. I’m not sure why, but I am loving more than ever to show my waist off and celebrate my body.
In the past year, I’ve taken 25kg off my body and tossed it aside. It’s pushed me to rethink the options in my closet, how to dress for my shape and what makes me feel good. I’ve been sticking to my comfort shade: black. While it may seem ‘Safe’, I feel sexy and fabulous when I wear black. So when Christine from Christine Kardashian offered to send me this fabulous peplum top, I was really feeling great.
A few months ago I gave Closet Confessions readers a sneak peak at a new skirt that was coming to Australian label Harlow. Well, it had you in a spin and Kerry, the lady behind the brand told me it was a BIG hit, too. The Studi0 54 skirt is still in constant rotation in
