Ugh. This is what I am wearing right now. What I was going to wear today to go see a friend and wander around an outside shopping area for a bit. But now, I don’t want to. Maybe it’s because I’m fresh off trying on jeans yesterday and having NOTHING fit. NOTHING. My legs are too big to fit into jeans lately. I don’t know how I found the jeans I do have. I just need to stick to Goldsign I think. And I just can’t with my saddlebags. CANNOT.
My mission, now, is twofold:
1. Get over it. No one cares about my saddlebags.
2. In the meantime, I feel more comfortable when I wear things that suck them in more – like when I wear long skirts/dresses with spanx underneath, or when I wear things that glide over them, of which I have very few items (my harem pants, my Black Crane pants…). So, I will wear things that I’m more comfortable in until I stop giving a shit about my saddlebags. They’re not going anywhere. I’d REALLY REALLY like to find a pair of wide leg pants/jeans, but my experience yesterday was so jarring that I don’t think I’ll be able to – they’re still all very slim in the leg for my legs…
Oh, and also I want to wear these sandals more often. I love them.
Also also, I need to get a t-shirt bra, my flimsy cotton no-underwire bras don’t work with this shirt. at all.
Also also also, in case you don’t read Lisa’s blog (you should), she’s having a blog sale featuring some of her “clothes to dress like Grechen” pieces from James Perse & the aforementioned Black Crane pants. Do check it out if you’re interested!!
Please note – I’m not posting this to get compliments or for you to tell me how great I look in this outfit. If you think I do, thank you. I’m posting my honest thoughts about my outfit, to be, well, honest. Unfortunately this is what goes through my head sometimes when I’m getting dressed and/or looking through the pictures I took of my outfit. Most days, this is not what happens. But some days, it’s a struggle, still, to get dressed and leave the house.
Just keeping it real.
