Body confidence and crop tops!

Where to begin...

For a looong time I've envied other girls for wearing crop tops and having this image in my head that if you're not a certain size then you couldn't possibly wear crop tops, could you?

Well screw that! I'm sick of loathing my body just because I don't have a flat tummy and that I certainly do have junk in my trunk. I need to care for me and focus on the good rather than the bad all the time. Now this isn't a post promoting or degrading "plus size" or any other body image, this is just about my body confidence.

In reality, the saying is most definitely true. Life is too short. I don't know why I've only just come to this realization but I'm running with it. Am I going to buy the really cute crop top with my not so flat tummy? yes, yes I am.

Not only that, but I'm gaining confidence to dress for my size. For years and years I've thought, hmm, I'm not thin so that obviously means I have to wear baggy clothes because then nobody will see my wobbly bits. How wrong I was. When my sisters asked me to go shopping I thought to myself, perfect opportunity to buy all the crop tops ever made. But here's my favorite.


I still don't think I'm 100% comfortable looking at this picture, but I'm getting there.

I saw this crop top the other day but didn't give it a second look because of my previous mentality. I'm so glad I've changed my outlook because this crop top is so cute. I've teamed it with some high waisted jeans and my creeper babies.





This is currently my favorite outfit. 

I'm currently trying to wear these creepers with every outfit because I'm obsessed. 

Why not?

  3. I can sympathize with you on this one, because I've always swore I'd never wear crop tops because of my weight (all thanks to my not so toned tummy). However lately I've been a little more confident and purchased more fitted tops all whilst in a weight loss stage - don't get me wrong I love body confidence, but because of my health I had to make changes *sighs* Good on you nevertheless! x

    1. I'm in the exact position. Because of health problems I've had to change from a size 20-22 to a 14-16. My confidence still isn't back fully but I'm getting there. I did the same thing too I started wearing fitted tops then bought some crop tops and never looked back! It's nice to know I'm not the only one. And thankyou xx
