Hello World. It’s time to Break Out an OOTD ( Outfit of the day post), Girl it’s another jumper/jersey post .
I wasn’t lying when I said I’m living for snug knits this winter. Paired over here with a fur gilet, it immediately changes the whole knit/legging/boot combo. To not end up looking the same I also changed up the accessories in this look , including the massive earrings, added a hat & different sunglasses.
The fur gilet was gifted to me two years ago which was bought on sale at Woolies for wait for it R100. This is on trend and will be around for a good few years still. The earrings I nabbed off my friend and is from Mr Price where it retails for R19.90, the hat is from Trenery and sunglasses from Aldo (three/four years ago)
A few weekends ago all snug in my knit we went to the movies . I wanted to watch ‘I Feel Pretty’. A romcom starring Amy Schumer who plays Renee a woman who doesn’t believe she’s beautiful. Instead of having a makeover, or going on some fad diet, after a little bump on the head, something changes for her. What changes is the way she sees herself.
This movie is relatable in so many ways. There was a time when I was Renee, I felt ignored & definitely not beautiful . I hated being fat and thought to the world I was ugly and invisible, until I changed the conversations I was having with myself. I started loving me for who I was, an imperfect mess. I invested my time in people who accepted me for me. I spent my time doing things that fed my soul. The world slowly changed for me. It proved to me that who I see myself as is who people will see me as. And what people were seeing was someone who was loving life.
The world we live in will still judge you for being fat because people have been conditioned to believe that beauty has one standard look. And that look is a size zero. The change comes when you believe in your worth. We need to change our dialogue. Being fat isn’t being ugly, being fat doesn’t mean you are not worthy of love , being fat doesn’t mean you are invisible .
