Hey all and happy Monday! Today’s post is going to be a bit more personal, as I am discussing a bit about body positivity.
As so many of you know (and maybe some don’t) I started this blog originally just as an outlet for my fashion sense. While I love reading so many blogs, I found myself never being able to fit into most of the clothing featured. I decided to start blogging because dressing for my size and my shape was a totally different world than what I would see on other blogs.
I partnered with Ideology Active (sold exclusively at Macy’s) to talk a bit about body positivity and what it means to me. Weight has been a struggle for me my entire life. I was always the heavy kid growing up, and I can still remember some of the things that people called me, and still call me until this day. While it’s tough to deal with now, I have found ways to move past words, and promote more of self-love. I decided years ago that when I go out into the world every single day, I will always put my best foot forward.
My belief in putting my best foot forward is to always show up dressed for the part. That is a huge reason of why I am so dressed up so much of the time. While I may not be the ideal size to some, I have come to accept my body and my curves in a way that has allowed me to dress them.
With that being said, workout clothing has always been a hassle for me. Tops were never long enough, never fit quite right, and yoga pants never quite stretch over my thighs. Ideology Active caters to women of all shapes and sizes and is one of the more affordable brands of workout clothing. I also really love that they are promoting this idea of body positivity as a way to help girls and women who may struggle with their bodies.
I would love love to hear your thoughts on any of this below! Please, feel free to share your stories!
