Fashion Insecurities

WIWW #13

pleated poppy


Here's how I deal with fashion insecurities.
Dress: Tommy Hilfiger Outlet; Jeans: Walmart; Belt: F21;
Necklace: Lisa Leonard; Shoes: Naturalizers

#1 Tunics are my friends.
These pants are super comfy.  I feel like wearing them everyday, but I don't have enough tunics for that.  And I don't wear skinny jeans without tunics, because that is just not attractive.  I was not really designed for skinny jeans.  I was designed for birthing babies with big heads.  So tunics to the rescue.

Cardigan: Target; Tee: Old Navy; Scarf: Gift; Jean: Goodwill; Shoes: Marshalls

#2 Fads in Moderation.
Vanilla and chocolate and a little leopard to top it off.  I like leopard, but I'm scared to wear it in large doses.  I have relegated it to my feet and the side of my glasses.  Tame leopard, not the wild leopard.  Just a little bit o' trend for me.

Shirt: Thrifted; Tank: Nordstrom Rack; Shorts: Marshalls; Shoes: 9 West Outlet BOGO

#3 Embracing my Awkwardness
We are having a bit of a hot spell here, so I whipped out the shorts.
Then I got my hair cut, which is the only reason it is looking smooth.  I curl my hair cause I can't make it smooth.  Then I went to the doctor, and I had to take my shoes off.  I was really embarrassed that my feet might smell, so I warned him, and he laughed.  I'm not sure if they smelled, but they were sweaty.  Today I embraced the sweat.  Tomorrow I will curl the hair.


Do you have fashion insecurities?
Do you fight them or work with them?

Heather said...

Amy said...

Oh, you look great as always! I think everybody has fashion insecurities.:) I know I do!!

Elyssa said...

I like the touches of leopard this week!

Also, the 'made to birth babies with large heads' made me laugh out loud!

I would say that sometimes I work with my insecurities. I'm short so I don't often wear long skirts or ones that hit mid calf because they make me look even shorter.

Other times I fight them. I have a larger lower section, but I do wear skinny jeans because I just love how they look!

you look great! love the first belted tunic outfit. I'm a pear and am always insecure about my hips/thighs!

Thanks for your comment. You are right, I kind of took a break from WIWW. I was tired of see my same clothes on camera!! Time for new clothes or a new season.

Your post made me laugh. babies with big heads :) lol.. I agree on all of those things. I always warn the doctors too.
All three of the outfits are great too.

Great looks! I think you're working with your "insecurities" well!

Shanna said...

I like all three outfits, but I really like the 2nd & 3rd outfit. And I want the shoes in the 3rd outfit. You're embracing the heat wave with some very cute shorts, and I'm embracing the rainy fall like weather...

xoxo, Shanna

You look great! I really like the leopard shoes. I'm all about animal prints and bling.

Cindy said...

The first outfit, the dress and jeans look beautiful on you and make you look very slim. No one would know that you have wide hips, they don't look it in any of your outfits. Goes to show that you know how to dress for your body style. Good for you!
Hugs, Cindy

Cindy said...

Sorry, I meant to say body type, not "body style". I get decorating and clothes mixed up:) Have a lovely day.
Hugs, Cindy

Jeanine Byers Hoag said...

I definitely have fashion insecurities! Mine center around body type issues, so like you, I dress according to the body I have, not the ones the models have in all those catalogs and fashion magazines.

Skinny pants and jeans and I are not speaking to each other, right now, but I am considering making up, IF there is a tunic or long sweater involved! :)

Love your skinny jeans outfit!

You look nothing short of fashionably confident! And your hair looks so good. And long...very very long. love it.

TDM Wendy said...

You look adorable. I am not the most fashionable girl. But I guess I am not too insecure about it . . . because I am okay with it. And your hair looks beautiful.

Tamera Beardsley said...

Jodi said...

I am sooo with you on #1 & 2 - especially the not wearing skinny jeans with short tops part. Amen.

Megan said...

LOVE the outfit with the shorts - you are adorable and that outfit is great :)

I have been trying to work with my fashion insecurities, but sometimes I just fight them :)

Jeanna said...

I love your outfits! Nine times out of ten I feel insecure about what I'm wearing... But when I get great feedback off my blog I feel like I can do anything. Thanks for the nice comment. Ps. My shoes are a turquoise fake raw silk that I found at some shoe store in this high end mall in San Diego for like $15 buck. Score!
