This post is weird for me. I went into this outfit shoot with Agnes knowing I’d hate 99% of the photos because I’m not the biggest fan of my legs. Having struggled with eating and body-image issues more-or-less my entire life, I try to be kind to myself about my body, but sometimes I fail big time.
I seriously considered changing outfits before we met up, but I forced myself to wear shorts in an outfit post to try to get over my insecurities and because I’ve been living in shorts on the weekends at the beach. I’d love to say I totally owned the shoot and loved my legs in all the photos, but that would be a blatant lie.
It was hard for me to sort through the photos and come thigh-to-face with my legs. Anyways, I don’t want to force you to listen to me body-shame myself for an entire post, so instead I’ll leave you with a few of the photos I liked most.
Let’s end this post on a high note. I am so excited that I finally purchased a pair of white Converse. I have this same pair in light grey, and I love them, but they don’t go with everything. When I was in Copenhagen and Amsterdam, everyone and their mother was wearing a pair of these and I scooted to Nordstrom Rack as soon as I got back to pick up a pair of my own. Best purchase all summer!
What clothing items are you migrating to this summer?
