This pic is from this past November. I actually wish I wasn’t holding that magazine in my hand (my sister made pose with it), because I have very few “oh my gawd, I love this pic of me!” pictures. And I do love this pic. Just pretend you don’t see the magazine.
So, uhh, how about we turn this into a fashion post? This is an example of how I usually dress on the weekends when I’m out and about. In this here pic, I’m wearing:
Sweater poncho from Macys. Black turtleneck, jeans and dangly earrings from JCPenny (can you tell I love that store?).
I used to dress messy on the weekends and not take any kinda pride in myself. I’d just throw on whatever. But the more I started to care about my health, the more I also began to care about my physical appearance and how I present myself. I am in no way fancy with my fashion and I don’t spend a lot of time with prim and prep. I’m not a diva and don’t have time for high maintenance (but a shout out to all the divas, yo!).
It’s just great to finally wear clothes that fit right and feel good — clothes that I can move in without being all squashed and uncomfortable because of extra weight. Feeling comfortable and confident in your clothes gives you automatic swagger. Fitness will do that for ya. Dedication to your fitness regimen is guaranteed to put you in an outfit that gives you swagger and makes you say, “Oh my gawsh, I love this pic of me!”
Stay dedicated to yourself. Keep working hard, increase your swagger ratio and capture that picture-perfect moment for yourself.
Have a GREAT weekend!
