Clothing & Body Type

Urban Outfitters lace top, Forever 21 tank top and earrings,
thrifted pants, Banana Republic heels
I unintentionally decided to participate in Kyla's 31 Blogging Days of May. After writing my post yesterday about my updated college outfit, I stumbled upon her proposal for this month's posts. Yesterday's post just happened to fit the topic (style retrospective), so I decided to go along with it for the rest of the month.

I met Kyla of Blue Collar Catwalk briefly during the 2012 Texas Style Council. It definitely wasn't enough time to get to know this fabulous gal. For starters, she's into roller derby AND has a fabulous sense of style. Even better, she is 100% comfortable with her body. Which brings me into today's topic...

Clothing & Body Type!

Surely, this is everyone's least favorite topic. It's definitely forced me think about a subject that I usually avoid. I've gained about 10 lbs since I started college, but I don't really feel any heavier. In fact, I still wear the same size I always have. I started jogging recently, but my goal isn't to lose weight. I just want to be healthy. 

As far as dressing for my body type, I always have to be conscious of my larger-than-average chest. I can't wear anything with too high of a neckline or else I look HUGE. At the same time, I also can't wear anything too low or I'll look like a hoochie mama. Don't even get me started on bathing suits and bras. It's a pain, but I'm grateful the only thing I have to worry about is looking too boobalicious. 


  1. beautiful lace top! love that it's cropped, & love the color. you're a beautiful girl through & through. xo. 

  2. It's also strange how you start being more self conscious of these things as you get older. I'm really self conscious about my tummy and being curvy. I can't even tell you how many times people have asked me if I'm a few months pregnant before. It's like, really? Only pregnant people have curves?!

  3. Love this outfit! You look amazing dear(: Would love if you checked out my Thursday link party or
    thriftfanatics page if you have a minute(;





  4. I love the lace top in that color...it's almost like we just switched the layers of our tops (I did white over teal...you did teal over white).
    As for body type...it's kinda funny...I remember always wanting larger boobs when I was young (didn't everyone?)....now I'm quite content with my size...but then sometimes I want them bigger for a certain outfit...and sometimes I want them smaller (so I could go backless like Kate Hudson does!)...so I guess we just gotta rock what we have!

  5. Also, who has the nerve to ask any woman if she's pregnant even if you're 99% sure she is? That's like the one thing you're never supposed to ask!
