Spring Work Outfit + Insecurities

spring work outfit striped sweater skirt wrap sweater pink bow pumps

I’ve been feeling all kinds things lately but one thing that doesn’t seem to want to go away are my insecurities.  We all have them however I’ve never really had an issue until now.  I’ve always been pretty secure within myself.  I know who I am.  I know my worth.  I know what I can offer.  The past couple of months have made me second guess everything about myself.

I don’t want to think these ridiculous thoughts but it just happens.  I can’t help it.  I’m only human.  These thoughts make you feel shitty all around.  I had to dig really deep to realize that it’s not me.  It’s not that I’m not young enough or pretty enough or thin enough.  It has nothing to do with me whatsoever.  I’ve been praying a lot, reading and finding ways to heal.  I’ve just lost my way for a little bit and need to find my confidence back.  I don’t want Milan to think her mommy isn’t secure because I am.  I want to raise her to be confident and strong and secure no matter what life throws at her.  I will not allow circumstances or situations or other people’s stupid actions define me.

As you may have noticed, I haven’t shopped as much as I used to lately.  I’ve been trying my best this year to only buy pieces that I absolutely love.  These pink bow kitten heels are so freakin’ adorable.  The prettiest shade of pink topped off with the perfect size bow.  Sizing runs true to size even though I said they ran small on my last post – sorry!  I must have had a momentary crazy brain or a really swollen right foot.

I’m absolutely head over heels in love with this striped sweater skirt.  Fits like a glove and very flattering.  Love the longer length and high waist.  Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing XXSP.  There is a lot of stretch but I’d recommend ordering your normal size.

If you love wrap tops or need a nursing friendly top for work, this cross over sweater is very classy.  Love how it looks tucked in a skirt and it’s not revealing or low cut.  Great for the office and you can layer it under a jacket or blazer.  My entire outfit from head to toe is 40% off with code: SOSWEET (click HERE to shop).  I also picked up this tweed two in one top, these Mila scallop pumps and these scallop flats.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Girl I went through this as well. It was an event that occurred and a person that said something to triggered these negative feelings. I had to step back and look at myself and say is this really me or is this person an a**hole. Why is this happening, etc.
    It ended up being the person. In the reflection process, I was able to reaffirm things about myself and make myself more aware of my surroundings and how I react to things. So even though it wasn’t me, the whole situation ended up helping me grow as a person and become wiser.
    Sometimes people try to tear us down bc we don’t think like them or act like them. It means we just don’t mesh. Everyone is an individual and special in their own way. If we were all the same, the world would be a boring place.
    There are millions of people in the world. What one person hates about me, another will love. Get the negativity out, bye bye.
    Hang in there and don’t let anybody tear you down. It’s not the end of the world and this shall pass with time. You’ll come out a better person on the other side of it.
    You are a wonderful mom to Milan. Don’t doubt yourself. Keep your head up.
    P.S. I’m a 1st time mom also. My angel is 18 months and the best thing that ever came into my life. From reading your blogs, I feel that you feel the same about Milan. She is your salvation.

    • Aw congrats on your little angel! So much fun and enjoy every minute because time goes by SO FAST! Thank you for sharing your story and the great advice. Loved everything you wrote! Milan is most definitely my saving grace. XO

  2. It happens sometimes, life has its ups and downs and it’s totally normal to go through a phase in which we don’t really feel like ourselves. I believe you’re gonna get through this and be your confident self again in no time.
    About your outfit, that skirt is really pretty, I like the fit and the colours and I think the texture on the fabric makes it really flattering.

  3. You are fab! despite not feeling that way right now. P.S. LOVE your heels 🙂 & your whole outfit 🙂

  4. I just love your skirt! I love those colors. Don’t beat yourself up over what someone else does or says to you. I am going through something similar and thought for a while it was me but I can see now it wasn’t. Don’t let it get you down, stand up for yourself. I wrote myself a note and put it in my wallet “stand up or shut up” just to remind myself not to let him runover me! Hang in there

  5. Hi Annie. Sometimes we’re unaware of how much stability and sense of security in ourselves the people in our lives bring/contribute. And so when things change, that senses of stability and security in ourselves gets thrown off course, and we feel insecure and unstable. What we don’t know while we’re in that dark place, is that we’re about to discover a new sense of stability and security. But the difference with this one, is that it hinges on no one else but God. And that stability and security in “ourselves”, NO HUMAN BEING can ever influence nor take away. Be patient with yourself. You’re going to feel everything. It’s gonna be rough. But you’ll be untouchable thereafter.

  6. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging
    on sites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
    It’s always interesting to read content from other authors
    and practice a little something from their sites.

  7. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find
    out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.

    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!
