I almost didn’t include this from-the-side view in today’s post; it’s not the most “flattering,” and some days I just want to put up outfit pictures without digging heavily into my relationship with my own body and the media’s depiction of what an acceptable body looks like.

But more and more lately, when I feel uncertain about something for similar reasons, that uncertainty tends to morph into grumpiness, and contrariness, and “why-SHOULDN’T-I-post-this-wonky-picture”-ness, so here we are.

I like my shape.

This is what I look like.

Here I am.

And so forth.

And maybe nobody would have even thought it was wonky if I hadn’t said anything, but too late now! That’s okay, though–it’s not like you all thought I was a bastion of self-confidence before today, anyhow.

  1. I can TOTALLY identify with you on that! Sometimes it’s tough to say “this is my body and this is what it looks like and that’s OK”. Good for you, saying it and posting the pics! By doing so, you are helping yourself and the rest of us with “imperfect” bodies stand strong together. You’re amazingly wonderful and beautiful just as you are!

    And I really like that outfit. 😉

  2. I noticed that (A) I love your hair SO much, (B) that is an awesome skirt, I love it every time, (C) Mia has pink shoes? Have I missed seeing those before? Those are pretty. and (D) I love that necklace, it looks like little spoons. Also, you have a lovely back.
