Oh February has been quite the month for me already. Lots of self love. Lots of body confidence. No more body shaming. Now today and the rest of this week is going to be a little harder to swallow thanks to the age old “wahhhh! My body isn’t perfect!” and that is honestly the biggest load of bullshit ever. We need to love these bodies of ours, with all the bumps and flaws. My husband doesn’t see me that way. My children don’t. Friends don’t. Strangers generally don’t even see me that way. Time to knock off that unhealthy mindset. With that being said, I present to you the present of me in lingerie-ish.
I used the Everyday Essentials pattern and used the top in stretch lace, lining the front cups in swim lining, then this is where my true Melissa aka rebel nature came in. I added a handkerchief skirt instead of the pattern skirt and left it open in the front ala babydoll style. It is more tunic length, just long enough to cover the bootay! I actually love how it turned out. And yes, of course I toyed with it being off shoulder. I tend to like spaghetti straps more anyways which means a remix is in the horizon.
I think all of us bloggers stepped out of our comfort zone in this, but I am glad I did. I saw myself as confident and strong. That exudes more into everything I do and I am definitely going to learn from this experience.
Don’t forget to check out the rest of the talent on the tour. I am so proud of these ladies.
