I Ain't No Size 2

Have you ever had something that you had to have, and then it just sat in your closet? That's this skirt. I saw it online at Old Navy in the fall and wanted it. I was headed to Florida for a few days, so I thought it would be perfect. Fast forward to now and I am just wearing it for the first time!

Why? Beats me. It has a pretty decent amount of stretch to it, which makes it really comfortable. Plus, I feel like it can not only be worn in the warmer months, but it also can be a great transition piece into the fall.

Something like a denim pencil skirt can be a great staple for the closet this time of year. While it has a comfort factor to it, it can be quite versatile. Although it looks great with a pair of wedges, my favorite way to style it is with a great pair of sneakers.

If I am being honest I will say that I was a bit hesitant to wear this outfit. I mean I am no size 2...I'm not nearly in any sort of shape that I would like to be, and I know something like this would probably look better on someone that isn't quite as thick as I am. Have I worn more flattering things before? Yes. Have I worn less flattering things before? Probably! My point is, I guess it got to the point where I didn't really care if this was something I should or shouldn't be wearing just based on my size. Who cares what size you are...where what you want, right? When it came down to it, I thought it was a cute outfit. Not to mention, I wanted to wear something that would distract people from the massive zit on my chin-holy cow!!!

  1. I think you look great! The shape is really flattering and the flash of midriff look awesome;)

  2. I think you can definitely rock the whole look. I like the denim pencil skirt idea and tried one from LOFT this past summer but it wasn't a good cut. I'm definitely will to give this Old Navy one a shot!

  3. I'm no size 2 either, I fluctuate from 8-12 its awful, because I put myself down alot due to constant yo-yo-ing however here lately I have been a little more gentler to myself and not putting myself down, if I feel good and what I wear looks good on me I'm going to wear it just because were not a size 2 does not mean we do not look good, enough of the body -shaming and it needs to start with us!! Great post by the way, I love your blog :)
