A while ago, I was contacted about how conservative I was for a body accepting/fat fashion blog. This email made me think of my own personal style and body issues. Where does a style blogger teeter between body consciousness and acceptance and taking fashion risks. I don’t hate crop tops and high-waisted shorts because I’m afraid of my body or because I’m self conscious of what other people are going to say about me. A part of style is finding what you like, what works best for you and what makes your feel comfortable.
I don’t try and hide my body but I don’t put it all out there like a lot of other style bloggers. In this case, I took a moment to take a couple of photos of my outfit that I wore to the beach recently to get lunch with a friends. Personally, I don’t think this outfit is one I would wear to any other scenario as it wouldn’t be appropriate. But I don’t spend all day everyday hiding behind blazers and trouser pants.
