grandma and i spent the day together on saturday, and while i was looking forward to seeing her and doing whatever it was we were going to be doing, i was not looking forward to getting dressed. i felt crampy and bloated and uncomfortable, and nothing but sweatpants are comfortable at times like that. so naturally i chose the skinniest jeans known to man. naturally. oh yeah, and i actually straightened my hair for the occasion, so that's a pretty big deal.
jacket: american eagle // shirt: thrifted // jeans: old navy, gift from beca // clogs: lotta from stockholm // bag: vintage, thrifted // sunglasses: tumbleweeds handcraft
although super skinny rockstar cut jeans may not be the first thing most people would go to on crampy, bloated days, i realized something: i may be feeling fat and miserable and moody (thanks, hormones) before i get dressed, but once i put them on and see that they still fit just like they did a few days ago when i wasn't feeling like i'd gained 100 pounds overnight, i feel a little bit better - almost like a confidence boost. so next time i'm feeling like that, i'm not bothering with my stretchy leggings and a loose tunic (because that won't help make me feel any less huge), i'm going straight for my skinniest jeans.
do you ever have to trick yourself into feeling better? what do you do?
also, don't forget about two awesome happenings: first, be sure to enter the TUMBLEWEEDS GIVEAWAY to get your hands on a pair of the danielle clubmaster sunglasses like i'm wearing i nthe pictures! second, don't forget to reserve your spot at the SOUTHERN BLOGGER MIXER happening later this month in chattanooga!
