It's about the clothes. Not the girl. But that's the fun of it. So just keep guessing...

Redefine

Hey everyone! So here's another positive body image post... These are my faves:) It may be hard to wrap our heads around it, but literally everyone has loads of insecurities. Yes, even Miranda Kerr and her fellow VS models. Anything from too tall to not muscular enough to too pale to weird elbows, us girls are in the same boat -- we are insecure because of some crazy stuff in the media. We're expected to look a certain way (flip open to any page in Cosmo, ahem), and that way is really an unfair expectation! I could definitely write out a huge list of all of the things I'm insecure about. But, I'd rather be productive and stop looking at other girls wishing I looked like them and instead, think about what I like about myself. It's simple; look at your list of "hates" about yourself and redefine them. Turn them into assets!! Today my outfit was all about this. I had to change my clothes to fit my body, not change my body to fit my clothes. To hide my stomach bulge, I placed the belt a little lower than a usual Empire waist fit. To make my legs look more defined, I put on a nice pair of wedges. Anyway, you get the point. No need to feel bad about anything on your body... You're more beautiful than you could ever think. Remember-- redefine your so-called negatives about yourself into assets. They're the things that make you, you. And that is a wonderful thing. 

... Recent studies have found that if we were to see our exact self walking around town we wouldn't even recognize it to be ourself! The way we view ourselves is so much different (and usually lesser) than how everyone else views us. Long story short, don't be too hard on yourself/your appearance. You're all amazing!

Stay happy <3

    1. Thank you for the nice comment! Very true-- the people we would least expect definitely still have body image issues. It's a rough journey to try to completely love your own image, but it's do-able! We're all in this together!!
