I received some really awful messages recently regarding my body and the way I dress. Body shaming is NOT acceptable and I feel like I need to address this issue.
What I choose to do with my body or how I dress is my choice and my choice only. It may not be for everyone and that is perfectly fine with me. The outfits that I’ve posted recently have been a lot of “going out” outfits. Clothes that you wear on dates or when you go out with girlfriends to have a fun.
I know it may seem kind of shocking to see me in these more sexy or revealing clothes because I’ve never posted anything like it in all the years I’ve been blogging. That’s because I never really had the opportunity to go out or wear any sexy outfits. To be clear, these outfits are NOT something I would wear to the grocery store or on a day to day basis when I’m with Milan. I was furious when I received messages that insinuated that I was dressing too provocatively and that it had a negative effect on Milan.
Anytime you bring my daughter into a conversation or message, I will literally go ape shit. That is where I draw the line. Do not ever bring my family or daughter into anything. Say what you want about me but do not cross that line because you will see side of me that is very unpleasant.
Just because you’re a mom, doesn’t mean you can’t look or feel sexy. Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you have to forget your identity. You are still a woman. A woman who can choose to wear whatever she wants to feel good about herself. There is a huge difference between looking sexy and looking trashy.
I’ve been living in absolute hell for so many years and it’s taken everything I have to get to where I am today. Literally everything.
I finally feel good about myself. I feel good in my own skin. I will not apologize for feeling confident. I will not apologize for being sexy and I most certainly will not apologize for how I dress. I’ve never felt as happy or as confident as I am today. I’ve worked my ass off to feel whole again and I will not allow anyone to bring me down. I will wear whatever the hell I want. If it makes me feel good, I will wear it.
I am damn proud of the woman I am today and the woman I’ve become after the misery that I’ve been put through. Finding the strength to pick myself back up, work full time and raise my daughter on my own is NOT freaking easy. How did I do it? Simple. I put Milan’s needs above my own. That is how I found strength. I will never allow anyone to dictate my life EVER again.
It makes me sick how someone can sit behind their computer or hide behind their phones and judge others. To all the trolls that body shame others, you should be ashamed of yourself. Truly. It’s disgusting behavior and I will say an extra prayer for you. If you don’t like my outfits or content, please unsubscribe or unfollow. It’s really not that difficult. I’m not addressing this to give them unnecessary attention because we all know that’s what they thrive off of. I’m sharing this because I think it’s important for women to support and build each other up instead of judging or body-shaming on another.
Thank you for letting me talk about this. Now let’s get to this cute navy colorblock dress. I love how simple it is. Sexy yet still classy. Sizing runs small and even smaller once you wash and dry it. I’m wearing size small and as you can see, it’s very form fitting. It’s a great summer dress for only $25! Would recommend.
