Its late, its Saturday and I’m still winding down from going to the gym.
So far, the scale isn’t cooperating with my working out. I know there are a variety of reasons for this. There is my body adjusting. There is inflammation from pushing myself. There is muscle being built there. I just wish it would be my friend and show some more progress.
So, as a bit of distraction since I need it, some fat girl outfits. The big thing missing from these? Boots. They are in the mail. I may have committed to running a mile straight before I get to wear them, so it will be a few weeks, but oh, it will be worth it.
This is my favorite jeans (Lane Bryant red) and a new cardigan from Lands End. I boycotted Lands End for a long time because I find the “comfort fit waist” sort of insulting to plus size women. Or well, very granny like. I find a solid waistband is a lot more flattering. However, I needed a red dress and they carry something I’ve been looking for for years. See below.
I have wanted an a-line cord skirt for years. Since I lost weight last time. A lines are more flattering on just about everyone, and well, cord is a very fun fall/winter look. I don’t live in the great white north for nothing. So, Lands End has one. This is the one on clearance but there is a plus & a regular size version. I just need a better shirt to go with it. And the boots.
I got a LBD awhile ago so I had one. It is from Old Navy (they have some of my favorite cheaper dress options). It is sleeveless and has a self belt. I tie it in back because my front needs zero attention. The cardi is also from them. I need some smaller cardis. My collection is getting a bit baggy.
This is the chambray dress my husband hates, with the belt he doesn’t like. I still love it. Belt and all. The belt is now a required part of wearing it as it is getting a bit baggy. I think I need another belt, any good ideas of where I can find a stretchy one in a color other than black?
*No one told me to write about their clothes, and I paid for all of these. I have the budget fight with my husband to show for it.
