Blogging. I’ve always loved it! I’ve blogged for years and years… I started back in high school when I tore my ACL and had surgery. I named my knee brace George.
Since then I’ve blogged my college life and playing basketball. I’ve sporadically blogged getting married and now our life with twins.
I’ve enjoyed it all!
But there’s one thing I think is going to take a while to get used to! Lots of bloggers are these cute, tiny gals looking super cute in everything they wear! It’s a little overwhelming because that is DEFINITELY not me. I’m almost 6’ tall and I haven’t seen 120 lbs on a scale since pre-high school. To clarify, I’m usually really confident in who I am and I have no desire to be much smaller than I am (most of us usually want to lose a pound or to if we’re honest with ourselves, right?), but that doesn’t mean I want to take lots of pics of myself and post them for the world to see. Not that I have to. I know I don’t. I’ve just been realizing how helpful it is to readers if they see a real life person in a real life outfit. Much better than a random Amazon link! So, I’m going to be trying it. I don’t even own a full length mirror… this is gonna be fun.
In order to ease myself into the process, I wanted to show you this amazing dress I got this week! I ordered the wine color because it was on sale for $9.99 in my size! I found the dress because Simply Becca modeled it last week. She’s much smaller and cuter than I am, but it looked like maybe a dress I would like. With free prime shipping and free returns I ordered it!
When I tried it on I fell in love! It’s soft, it’s comfy, it hides the extra skin the twins left me with (they give such good gifts). I even had running shorts on underneath and you couldn’t tell! Oh, and it has POCKETS! I think it would look cute with a kimono or jean jacket, too!
Next, it was time to get the picture. The boys were outside playing so I thought maybe they could help me. Since they’re 3… aiming is still a challenge. They each DID manage to get a picture from the waist down (but mostly just my feet and the grass), though my face was nowhere to be seen. I also tried the self timer (see the thumbs up) and posing was a huge challenge! The selfie attempt was hard to fit my whole 6’ frame in.
All of that to say I loved the dress, and I am sorry for the quality of the pictures 😃. If you want to try it for yourself, here’s the link!
