I'm Free, To Do What I Want, Any Old Time

Elissa gave me this tank a while back (during TxSCC!) and I said I would wear it with a tank top and pettipants. But after finding this amazing bandeau for 5 bucks at the Nordstrom Rack, I took it one step further...

I'm Free

A year ago I would never have had the body confidence to wear this, but I've lived and learned a lot in that year.

I'm Free

It reminds me a bit of an old fashioned bathing suit! It's bare without being over the top and it's really fun. I seem to dress for fun a lot these days.

I'm Free

It was a big hit at work. I can't think of higher praise to be honest, than when my co-workers like something. They are just as obsessed with sartorial choices as I am, and when they love something it always makes me grin from ear to ear!

Also, sometimes I wear a lot of rings. And by sometimes, I mean MOST times.

I'm Free

P.S. Good luck to sweet Kendi and all her friends embarking on the latest 30x30 re-mix! Can't wait to see what you guys do this go round!

Holy cow, you look HAWT, woman! Kudos to you for realizing that you CAN pull this off! You look amazing!

Yeah, girl! I love that the summertime is inspiring more body confidence--I mean, for me, I have no choice since to cover up would induce heatstroke. I need more crochet in my life, it is clear now.

Miss you!

Huge fan of this whole ensemble!

XO!

So, now I regret giving you that top. But just a teeny tiny bit. Girl, you look incredible. For real. I love how you pairs it with pettipants. I love the bandeau underneath, but most of all, I love that you're confident enough to wear it all together. You're gorgeous, stylish, and inspiring. And I'm glad you realize it.

What an adorable outfit! I wear a lot of rings too <3

I've been doing a lot of bandeaus underneath semi sheer shirts with a high waisted skirt. I love this look on you, it is somehow revealing yet modest at the same time.

And BTW I'm driving to Dallas to steal your rings. All of them. See you in 8 hours.

I can't imagine being confident enough to wear a midriff baring top at work. Good for you, because you look fantastic!

You know what, I am totally new to your blog, and I was just scrolling through your pictures... and then I saw this... you look hot! I noticed you said a year ago you would never have had the body confidence to wear this... well, I'm so glad you got over that, because you'd never have looked this good if you weren't brave! I love it!!
