WhatUp Wednesday #28

Hey friends! I hope you’ve all been having a great day! It’s that time again to share what I’m loving this week and anything new I’ve been up to!  So it’s been raining here the last couple of days and since I was off yesterday, I did some light cleaning around the house and watched a lot of Friends on Netflix. Speaking of shows, did you all see the new rebooted  Roseanne  ? I put it on the DVR and watched it today. I’m not sure what I think of it yet. I enjoyed seeing all of the old cast and hearing what they’ve been up to. I did notice that there were a lot of political jokes and while I wasn’t entirely sure if I liked all of them, I can only imagine there is a possibility that is actually what takes place in some families’ homes. Roseanne is on Tuesday nights on ABC.  I’m kind of sad that a couple of shows I really enjoyed are over.

WhatUp Wednesday #27

It’s been a minute since I last wrote! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that last week I was in Miami taking some time off for a much needed vacation!

These are easy to transition from work to play and I’ve already got a more casual outfit in mind for them. I had a meeting today so I dressed them up with a long sleeve stars blouse and wore heels and had to break out the sunnies since it was so bright! These pants don’t have a ton of stretch to them and I did size up to accommodate my larger bottom.  I am also loving this fun  bag  that I got right before I went on vacation.

Sunday Style: I Wear What I Want

Not to sound like a spoiled little child, but I wear what I want. It never used to be that way. Not even a little bit. Most of you who know me know I grew up in a very strict home and only was allowed to wear dresses and skirts. And let’s not forget those horrible culottes. Or better yet, please let’s forget them!  Anyways, fast forward to nowadays. I’m so tired of people saying you can’t wear this or you can’t wear that. One of the biggest myths is that bigger women cannot wear horizontal stripes. Why not? I look at it like this. If I’m bigger, I’m still going to be bigger wearing stripes. Nothing will change. My body is still my body.  It took me a long time to get rid of the nastiness in my head. The voice telling me I was too fat. The voice telling me you can’t wear that. The voice telling me to go up sizes because you could see the shape of my butt or my stomach. And I  still felt so uncomfortable because the clothes didn’t fit me right.  Lately, I cannot believe all of the sweet
