I have been swooning over this mint lace top since I picked it up at Forever 21.
My hubby took me shopping because I have been spring cleaning & getting rid/ selling clothes that he knew I was needing some more tops.
I was grabbing left and right not necessarily paying attention to sizes.
Usually at Forever 21 if it wasn't a size large I didn't even bother.
I mean before I started getting serious about my health I was barely a 14 making nice in the size 16 comfort zone!
I was in the dressing room trying on top after top.
Loved this black one that was similar to this one but it was black. I needed more color in my life.
It's spring, Hello?!!!
I tried this one on and LOVED it.
Of course the net thing I do is look at the price tag and see how much damage I'm doing.
Looked past the 19.80 or whatever price tag and saw it was a size....
Yup you heard me. Small.
I think my jaw dropped to the floor.
Now it is a flowy top but not in the chest area.
That's always where tops don't fit.
I have an hourglass shape so getting things to fit around my waist isn't usually a problem.
Nope. That pretty top button right over those puppies!
I realize I am not going to be a small everywhere and that's okay.
My point here is that before I wouldn't have bothered to look at this top and I would have probably walked out of that store feeling bad about myself.
I just want to remind you that weight loss isn't an easy journey.
I mess up all the time.
I skip a workout.
Or I eat the stupid delicious brownies my husband makes me.
Or I still beat myself up because I'm not pushing myself as hard as I know I can.
Everyday though I try harder.
I try to be better.
Make better choices.
Love my body where it's at right now.
Treat it with respect.
When I take care of my body the thing's it allows me to do are amazing!
Alright, long rant over!
This top is a perfect piece for spring and I see much use out of it in the sunny California summers.
These jeans are very comfy and I recommend if you carry weight on your bottom half these jeans are very forgiving for both your figure and wallet.
These jeans are transition jeans as I keep losing so for 13.80 I'm not complaining!
Added some very neon accessories and I was ready for a great day!
Also, this lace back is going to be even more perfect for me after my hair appointment Thursday!
What pieces are you adding into your wardrobe this season?
