Getting Back to Normal

Nash and Russo :: Chambray and DenimA few days ago, DB came home early and suggested that we all go to a promotion party at a nearby sports bar. Having been trapped in the house all week with two rambunctious bears, I leapt at the chance even though it meant we’d be skipping the Bear’s nap time. In the world of stay at home mom-hood, getting out and socializing is always a good idea.

This sentiment, however, is a far cry from how I felt, say, 4 months ago. When DB would invite me to things then I would always decline. In short, I never had anything to wear to go out. But really, it was more involved than that. I wasn’t happy with my body, and because of that I didn’t really have the confidence to meet a bunch of new people. Fast forward to today, I’m still working towards my fitness and weight loss goals, but I’ve made so much progress. I recognize myself when I look in the mirror and it has been a huge boost to how I feel and act around other people. No more hiding in leggings, I’m finally getting back to myself.

I’m not a huge denim on denim fan, but I saw this look on Pinterest earlier that day and I liked the contrast of having the darker shade on top. The skirt mean you’re not really head to toe denim like you would be with jeans. This outfit is a total experiment for me and I really enjoyed wearing it. It’s comfortable, a little unexpected, and well suited for taking on all the grit my little bears have to offer these days. I will be hemming the skirt before I wear it again, at the midi-length I find it too overwhelming for my frame, but otherwise, I think I’m off to a pretty good start when it comes to rediscovering my personal style.
