Bringing Back the Confidence

If you have been a follower of my blog for long enough, you will remember this dress.
I wrote a blog post about this flowy, floral dress before.
It has been a favorite since day one but to be honest, I have not been wearing skirts and dresses for about a year or so.
You may ask why, when I have been losing weight for the past year. But maybe that is exactly why. I have been losing weight for the past year and I have been avoiding certain pieces and styles. I want to say it's because I simply don't want to see myself in them until I reach my goal, but sometimes I also don't feel as bold enough as before to show skin, especially my legs.
I've always had a thick lower body and was never considered a skinny child growing up. I didn't let that get in the way. Or at least tried not to let it get in the way. Oddly enough, I seem to have issues being confident in that aspect now more than before my weight-loss. And in order to overcome that fear or lack of confidence, I decided to pull this dress out of the closet again.
I wore a simple pair of nude, suede flats to go with this multi-colored floral dress. I accessorized the look with my current go-to purse and put on a lightweight coat. I chose a nude colored pair of shoes over black to make my legs look longer. I also wanted the focus to be on the dress and not the shoes.
I am counting down the days until the weather warms up again. I can't wear pretty dresses and skirts when it's raining (yes, it's finally raining here in LA). But spring is right around the corner, and I want to actively work on overcoming my fears and building more confidence through my passion aka fashion (wow did I just rhyme there LOL) and share that experience with you guys here on my blog. Don't forget to stay updated through my instagram activities as well!
