This is currently me.
A phase of my life is drawing to a close. There have been ups, there have been downs, and I feel that at the moment my body is a reflection of this.
Recently, I’ve been making the effort to be honest with myself. To look at the full picture. To assess and analyse where I currently am and where I want to be. The outcome in my opinion is not great. My body at the moment is a map of the emotional rollercoaster I’ve been on for the past year, with new visible scars and the new not so visible ones.
Today was a day where I woke up and honestly just wanted to stay in bed. What’s the point. Not a question, just a feeling. We’ve all been there. But then I had a thought. Why am I not facing this? Why am I not addressing this?
The last thing I wanted to do was get in front of the camera, but I needed to snap out of it.
So of course, I picked up the camera and I found a grubby rickety old background in a local graveyard. And I faced myself. Yes this is a “fashion” post, and yes here I am – a tall, ‘could be lighter’ lass that has had better days, but here I am. No bra and muffin top. And proud to still be standing.
t-shirt – Primark // jeggings – Next // shoes – Primark
These jeggings are the most comfy things. Next have never let me down for long jeans, jeggings or even trousers. My only criticism is the lack of pockets at the front (and the muffin top obvs). Primark are great for summer additions at the moment and I love the colour of this pink ‘ying and yang’ t-shirt.
It’s time to snap out of it and set a few goals I think. Bit of a #summerreset project.
