One of my favorite reasons for participating with these other ladies is because I have learned to accept my body a little bit more. It is really hard to look at my body in photos when I know how I used to look, but I am realizing that this is who I am right now. I have always fluctuated and this is how I will be for the time being. Yes, I would like to lose weight and yes I would like to be skinnier and healthier, but for now, this is who I am. And that's kind of cool that this challenge has helped me see that.
For those of you who don't know how this process works or are new readers (welcome by the way!) I have collaborated with a group of awesome bloggers to take an outfit from another blogger and "tweak" it so that it matches our style. The only rule is that it has to be something already in your closet already though!! Here is the original photo:
I loved the idea of keeping it casual. I love dresses in the summertime because they fit my body better and they are cooler, but sometimes a casual outfit with a baseball cap is all that you need, ya know? I kept with the NY Yankees cap (not a Yankees fan by the way, it was just the only hat that fit me! Ha). Instead of wearing Camo, I decided to wear a Baseball tee to continue on with the baseball theme. I wore my black capris and my tan boat shoes. It was definitely a change from this outfit, but that's why this is such a cool challenge.
Oh, and these photos were after a VERY long day…so yours truly is au natural--meaning, no makeup….hair barely brushed. Welcome to true Sierra. Huzzah!
Also this exposed brick wall is in my new house. Have I mentioned how much I love my new house yet? No? Oh…. ;)
|I look so pissed here. Hahaha.|
|I really was just fixing my hat, but hey, it worked.|
|HOW DO YOU POSE FOR A CAMERA. SOMEONE TEACH MEEEE.|
