I ordered me some new clothes from Old Navy and Woman Within, I love the length of their tops.
I've tried Walmart but they just don't have the length and I am completely self conscious about my tummy hump.
The first post is some of the clothes from Old Navy. This outfit was COMPLETELY out of my comfort zone for many reasons. First, it's a tank top. Second, it's a patterned floral, well technically I think that's two things. Thirdly, the shorts are HOT PINK.
First, the no sleeves thing, I'm a big girl and with that comes big upper arms which I normally hide with sleeves.
Second, floral and patterned, reference the big girl thing above and you HAVE to be careful with florals. You don't want to look like you're wearing your grandma's moomoo. Depending on the type of pattern, the busyness of pattern and the amount of fabric needed for the size it can be overwhelming like your grandma's moomoo.
Thirdly, the HOT PINK shorts, enough said. I normally wear dark colored or neutral bottoms, helps camouflage the bum.
I love Cassie over at Hi Sugarplum, and her fashion sense, so I decided to take the plunge. I thought, 'what the heck? I can always return it.' So I ordered enough for free shipping, I mean seriously that's like an extra shirt on clearance, why wouldn't I order enough for free shipping.
I love it! I think the secret is to get medium sized florals with a neutral background, it's not too busy and isn't competing with itself. The hot pink shorts are really what surprised me. I really thought I'd be returning them, but it's almost a neutral in itself being one whole solid color!
I paired it with my Havianna's from Nordstrom, I love them!
I am so not a model, I don't know how to look and feel like a complete dork. Does anyone else feel like that?
