Curves Around the World: Recap of the past 20 themes

Hey Everyone, I hope your having a wonderful weekend so far! It's a beautiful weekend so far here in SoCal! I love how it's not too hot or too cold right now! 
But yeah I thought it would be great to do a little recap of all my "Curves Around the World" posts since this past week was the 20th themed post. I've been wanting to do recaps but for some reason it doesn't fallow through. But I decided it would be a great time to do it now. 
When we started I was so excited to challenge myself and push myself to wear things I would not normally wear. With the first 5 challenges I really challenged myself by trying a maxi dress that I've never worn before and wearing stripes that I have always tried not wearing because I was told not to wear. I have to say after trying both a maxi and stripes, I truly embraced them and I bought a few other pieces for my wardrobe and I'm so happy to have stepped out of my comfort zone within the first 5 themes! 
With the next 5 theme's I tried to challenge myself within the themes because a few of the themes were things that I wear normally so I tried to go outside of my comfort zone within those themes. For example with week 9 we were suppose to wear a date night outfit and you could wear so many things with that theme but I challenged myself to wear a bodycon dress. I own a bodycon dress but never wore it because I didn't like wearing it because it hugged your body and you could see everything, but I learned to love my stomach. 
Within the next few challenges, I have to say that week 15 was a big one for me because I am not wearing a jacket, showing my arms, I'm wearing a pencil skirt that is tight, and I'm wearing a crop top that shows part of my stomach. This was a big thing for me because it really pushed me out of so many of my comfort zones. But I have to say I am really happy with how the outfit came out and I'm glad I wore it. 
I think within the last few themes we've done one of my favorites was theme 16 which was vintage. It was actually one of the themes I was scared for because I didn't know what to do or what I wanted to wear but I am really happy with the way it came out. 
What have I learned? 
Doing "Curves Around the World" has been such a great experience so far, it has not only challenged me personally and fashionably. It has also inspired me with all the lovely ladies that have participated in the group. They are all such great women who all have great styles which I admire and they are all great individuals with great personalities as well. Blogging is something that I like to keep to myself and I don't like to share with everyone but it's been great having these ladies to talk to about blogging because I can see they all have there passion for it. I am so glad to be part of such a wonderful group of Curvy ladies, I'm so thankful to be part of such a great group of Ladies! 

I am still learning to love myself but I think we all have good and bad days but I have learned to just put my fears and insecurities away most days and love who I am. And by loving myself more I have learned to push myself outside of my comfort zones and be able to dress more the way I've always wanted to dress but never thought I could because I've always put those boundaries on myself. I can't wait to see what outfits come out of the future challenges that we have for you! 

So now that the weather is changing, so is the fashion and I'm excited to see what everyone will come up with. So I hope you continue to support me and the other wonderful ladies from "Curves Around the World!"
