I have a confession to make. I'm not much of a fashionista. It has much to do with having been over weight most of my life. This is not a feeling sorry for myself statement, it just is. Even at my thinnest weight, I had a devil of a time finding clothes that fit properly. So, I have always compensated with my love of interior decor. And as I prepared for this week's Shiny T Tuesday and linking up with Jane, I realized that I decorate in squares. You see, it really is hip to be square.
My latest excitement is the new rug that we got for the family room. It's modular and comes in squares... imagine that.
But my friends, do not worry, I did not chicken out. I am embracing my body. I am embracing who I am. I am committed to sharing myself - overweight or not - in order to accept myself. I am beautiful. I know that. As much as I'd rather hide and bask in the loveliness of my new area rug, I won't.
Can you see the square on my shirt?
It's there, even if it is embracing my curves.
And I love this necklace So lovely and shimmery.
Even my hat boasts a square or two.
I don't have access to fabulous thrift shops like some do. So all my clothes are retail. The shirt and pants are Addition-elle. That hat is from Target. The boots? Payless. The necklace was made by a friend of my mom's.
And that rug that I love? Flor.
Have a lovely week, my friends. Embrace your beauty. It is there.
