Hey y’all! I hope you’re having a wonderful week! I woke up this morning with places to go and people to see, more laundry dirty than clean, and exactly 3.2 pounds heavier than I was yesterday. One of my biggest struggles lately has been how to dress with the weight fluctuations that healing from Lyme brings. The dressing style that I’m used to has fitted waistbands and shirts, but in this season those just don’t work for my body or comfort level. Occasionally I’ll have a non-bloated, healthy day and go back to that look, but in the meantime I’m trying to just be thankful I’m feeling well enough to get dressed. 🙂
Jeans with a TON of stretch are my best friends right now. I bought these on the app Mercari for $16 and wear them pretty much every “off” day I have to go outside. They’re American Eagle brand, Jegging style. This flowing blue shirt I got at a thrift store for $1. It’s Ann Taylor brand.
I found this gorgeous shirt extender tank on ThredUP and it just came in the mail yesterday. It’s the perfect length to turn normal shirts into tunics! I’ll have to keep experimenting with how to layer it in such a way that doesn’t look too bohemian, but for today it fit the bill.
My formula for “fat” days is either a full-blown athletic look with exercise pants, florescent tennis shoes, and pony tail, or this look of jeggings with a long shirt and my favorite Dr. Scholl’s boots. 🙂 I hope y’all have a great day! I’m off to do that laundry…
