This week I wanted to share with you my first guest blog appearance! I wrote this piece for my friend Tiffany. Her blog, “The Thrill of the Hunt ” by Tiffy G. is an awesome resource on fashion where you can find out everything from the season’s hottest trends to how to rock cute tees from Target. I have watched Tiffany find her voice as a successful fashion blogger over the past few years and I was thrilled to appear as a guest on her blog.
This piece explores a topic that is deeply personal to me and one I will certainly spend more time discussing in the future, but for now, please enjoy, “Learning to Love Fashion in a Larger Body.”
After years of struggling with my body image and only feeling “good” when I was at my thinnest, I finally learned to embrace my body regardless of its size. I accept that every BODY is different, and a small body is not necessarily better or healthier than a larger one. Regardless of size, I have always received compliments on my ability to accessorize and coordinate an outfit. A skill that I mistakenly thought was directly correlated to my weight. In other words, I thought I could only look good if I were thin. After recovering from disordered eating and exercise bulimia, I have come to realize that it is not true, and there are ways to express myself and my creativity still while celebrating my body size.
Be sure to check out Tiffy’s other blog posts too.
