Taking a Big step...

Hello my dears!!! I Hope everyone had a great week and is excited for the weekend. I know I'm excited for the weekend! :) 

So today's blog is for the "Pinay Curvies" link up. I decided to join this month's link up because well I'm Pilipino and I'm curvy so why not. So the theme for this month's link up is "Boots Up!" I have quite a few pairs of boots and I'm currently looking for new pair of short boots. But yeah I decided to wear my favorite pair of short boots because it's summer here in California and wearing boots isn't my first choice of shoes. But I think short boots are great to wear with dresses and skirts even in the summer because they are a great alternative to sandals. 
So this posts outfit is a little different because it's something I've never worn before and I wasn't sure if I wanted to post these pictures up or take new ones with a whole other outfit. But I decided why not post it, I already took the pictures. Most of the blog isn't about my boots though but I think it's ok. 
 
So as you can see in the picture, I'm showing my some skin and it's skin that I don't usually show. So it's a big step for me showing some belly, you can tell that I don't show it off because it's so pain compared to my tan. But you know what it's not as bad as I thought. I got this bandeau top from Forever 21+ and I've was eyeing a tribal print one that I wrote about before (here) on my blog. So when I saw it in the store I compulsively just bought it with out thinking am I really going to wear it or what am I going to wear it with. But I'm glad I bought it, it's really comfortable. I wore it to the store and I felt like people were staring at me, at first I was very uncomfortable but then I just thought all the fabulous Plus size bloggers out there who rock outfits like these with so much confidence, so I pulled myself together and told myself "You feel comfortable and you know you look great! Don't care what others think!" And I pretty much didn't think about it anymore, so this is a big step for me and feeling comfortable in my own body and I'm really happy about it.

So putting this on the internet is a big thing for me but you know what I hope to inspire girls out there to embrace their bodies and to love themselves. And by loving your body you accept it the way it is, this is why I love the instagram hashtags #honormycurves and #effyourbeautystandards because they inspire me to do both those things especially in a world that tells you that if you aren't a size model size you aren't beautiful. But I want you to all know that you are beautiful no matter your size, shape, ethnicity, skin color or whatever. :) 

I hope you all have wonderful weekends! :)

  1. Awesome post!! I felt the same way as you about rocking the bare midriff. It's such a big step, but when you get over those feelings of insecurity, it's so empowering and such a confidence boost.

    The outfit is fabulous by the way. Love every part of it, and you look wonderful in it!

    Great job!!
