Today I had some fun with fashion, and I liked the outfit I put together so much that I thought I’d share. A couple of weeks ago, I ordered a maxi dress from Target to wear going home from my surgery and for the days directly afterward, when loose clothing would be the most comfortable. The dress arrived the other day, and since I had a 50th Anniversary Celebration Mass & BBQ to go to at my high school alma mater, I figured I could piece together a pretty cute ensemble.
It all looked fine on the hanger, but how would it look on me? Maxi dresses are usually not my thing, because I’m so short (5’3″) and they do nothing to show my hourglass figure. But with the addition of the jean jacket and some platform flip flops, I think the outfit turned out pretty well. Plus, I know I wouldn’t have felt half as comfortable wearing it if I hadn’t lost 35 pounds. Even with the jean jacket off later in the day, I felt great in it, and got a few compliments, which is always nice.
This is just a prelude to the types of outfits I’m going to be able to piece together as I lose weight. I can’t wait!!
