I am not going to start off by lying, this sweatshirt was me stepping outside of my comfort zone. I have always been a bit reserved when it came to ruffles and especially ruffles across my chest. The sweatshirt came across my instagram and I fell in love with it. I tracked it down and purchased immediately but when I received it, I put it in the closet and was double guessing my purchase. When I pulled it out this week I couldn't believe I double guessed myself, it is perfect and I couldn't love it more. I decided to pair it with a more basic outfit, to make the sweatshirt be the main statement. When you have a ruffle this big, it should be doing all the talking! I can't go anywhere without these prada sunglasses so they made the cut with the outfit also.
I am not sure anyone has been aware but I have had a crazy crack down on my weight. I have lost over 35 pounds in the past couple of months (baby weight was tough for me to get rid of, until I put a very good action plan in place with strict restrictions for myself). So now with the weight dropping off I am having to redo my wardrobe piece by piece. The biggest thing is finding what I want to push myself to try differently and having the confidence to build an outfit around those pieces. I am starting with basics and also splurging a bit, I don't feel too bad rewarding myself for all the hard work I have done.
Saying all that, I will be sure to share all of my new findings and I thank all of you for being such encouragement to me. I wouldn't have been able to do what I have without a great support system and such kind words.
Thanks for stopping by!
