Sweet Summer Time

Oh man, summer is really winding down! We are already experiences some chilly nights and mornings, like almost light jacket weather.Compared to last year it feels a little early but I always welcome fall so bring it on! Don't kid yourself though, we are still getting some 90 degree days thrown in there too. Anyway, we thought we would try to squeeze in a couple of last summer outfits before the switch.

This outfit has been my summer uniform this year. Last year I think it was shorteralls (they are still very frequently worn) but this summer I've been all about vintage mom shorts. I just love how curvy they make my body look and I love the rolled up shorts look. It takes me back to being 10-in the 90s-and this is what all the cool older girls were wearing. (These seriously go down to my knees unrolled.)

I feel like highwaisted bottoms are so much more popular now then they were in the past few years but I had issues finding highwaisted and not super short shorts in stores.  I can't comfortably get things done if my shorts are too short and I'm constantly having to adjust things. I just want to be able to get my shit done comfortably while still looking cute as hell, obviously.  Anyway, I was able to thrift it up and find some great shorts on used clothing apps and in the wild.

Also, this is a very personal PSA from a four eyed lady.  Spend the extra money to get prescription sunglasses, even if it is just one pair. You don't have to be crazy like me and order different styles, or you can if you want it's your life.  It will change your life and you will thank yourself every time you are outside.

I feel like I talk about the same things in every outfit post, but guys. I'm having a body image crisis. I don't want to feel this way. I want to love my body no matter what but it's just not jiving with me right now. I've struggled with this for a long time, but especially the past few months. I gained weight this Spring and I feel like it's all I see. I don't feel comfortable in most of my clothes any more, my jeans no longer fit, and I'm going wedding dress shopping soon. I'm kind of a basket case. I've added running in lately and am planning to try Crossfit or something soon and I track my calories on MyFitnessPal. I feel like I'm doing what I can so I need to just trust the process and focus on the good things I'm doing for my body instead of how I wish it was different. 

Anyway, I have been all about comfort this summer. I love rompers but have a hard time finding ones that are long enough and flattering on my body. This one from Nordstrom is perfect. It's longer than normal and fits perfectly. It's such and easy outfit to put on and make look chic while fighting the humidity in Missouri. I was feeling kind of blah about my body this day but I love these photos and I want to always try to dress it in flattering ways no matter what I weigh.
