Getting my Tree Trunks out | Fashion


With more Sunny days and warmer weather with us, I always take this time of year to play a little game of "Shall I get my tree trunks out" with myself haha, Usually I'll take the plunge and sport a pretty skirt or dress, But sadly there will always be someone, Somewhere having a laugh at my expense, And 9 times out of 10, that would put an end to the legs coming out and result in me spending the rest of the Summer's sunny days in leggings in fear of more ridicule. I had a bad Ski accident that's left me with bad legs, I've got poor circulation to boot so I've got such discolouration and it does get me down alot and buttttttt I try hard not to let it define my fashion. For some reason, The past year or so, for lack of a better way to say it, I've simply not given a toss. I get alot of people looking at me, either because of my size or hair colour or facial piercings. I'm not exactly one to blend in and personally, I don't think I ever will be. So why do I let it hold me back? Perhaps its time I reminded myself that I choose what I wear and that bullies don't get a say in my feelings or my wardrobe!



  


I worried so much about wearing the dress, that I put off wearing it for over 2 months because of my legs but I figured, Having them covered or having them out doesn't actually change their size. Sure wearing black leggings might make them look slimmer but as they say, Lets call a spade a spade, I'm Fat. I'm going to be fat in whatever I wear, I might be able to camouflage my size with flattering fits and colours but, Ultimately I'll still be fat.  I guess once I realized that, It didn't matter if my wobbly cellulite sally legs were on show, They would always look big even if I hid them away and this dress will still be gorgeous. So sod it :P

 I purchased this gorgeous Illusion Dress from Pink Clove and I absolutely LOVE it. It's a great length on me at 5'3, and I love the fit. Granted there is no illusion when it comes to my belly in it, But I love the colours and the style, I love the black back and arms and silhouette illusion it gives my frame. I do think some control pants need to be purchased and if any of  you can recommend some that wont give me a tire ring under my boobs that would be awesome :P  I decided to wear my pink pumps from Mrp.com for £4.50 I know they do them in an awesome green colour too! Then my latest Primark purchase was this silver necklace! I love the dimension and shape and I think it goes really well with the outfit!



Are you getting your legs out enough this summer?

  11. If you have a smile on your face, and a hitch in your giddy up no one will give a damn what your legs look like. I've done things people won't believe! I've been every weight under the sun, but I'm always my happiest when I'm being myself. You are BEAUTIFUL :) Always remember that and never, ever, look down. The sun, the moon, and the stars need us to SHINE because it makes the world a more beautiful place.

  15. Your blog really, really inspires me, like you have no idea. I relate when you said your personality is different, I suffered with depression for the longest time because I didn't want to accept who I am, and reading your blog made me happy, it kinda gave me a "don't give a fuck" attitude haha, thank you<3

  16. Love this post and I love the fact you get your legs out as well. It can be so difficult deciding whether you wear what you want and like or wear what you feel safer in cause no one likes to be laughed at. I hate my legs and generally don't wear a dress or skirt without tights or leggings unless it comes down to my knees. I mostly hate the back of my knees?! I dunno if people even notice the back of knees but I seem to! Anyway, this dress looks great on you and as you said, bullies should not get a say in how people dress or feel about themselves. It's a lesson I am slowly learning.

    Anyway, Haaappy Summer and enjoy not giving a f*ck! :-P

  17. I shpould wear more skirts and dresses without stockings... but my legs are super pale, as in... i live near the caribbean, beautiful weather all year, and my arms are tanned and my legs not, and it looks weird :(
    But I'll try to do it more often.

  18. That is one gorgeous dress. Aye sod the haters, wear what you like and be happy.
    I get a lot of bruises on my legs, am super pale and clumsy, I've found putting bb cream on helps hide them so I'm happier getting my legs out. I think there's a few wash off banners that would do the same.
    Love the blog, am a new reader :) also your bow tattoos are lush.
