There's been a lot of buzz lately about body-shaming and body positive images around social media and such. I mean, just a few weeks ago, there was that whole O Magazine debacle (which I will chalk up to a bad choice of words). The other day, I shared on my Facebook page a post I wrote over a year ago about pulling off a crop top for any size (for those of you who don't remember you can find it here). The reason why I wrote that post is because a girl like me, who isn't as "thin' as the next girl may want to wear a crop top. Trust me, I know.... I'm still petite and most people wouldn't even consider me to be "plus sized" and you know honestly, I don't even consider myself a plus size. BUT unfortunately society tends to make that judgement on other peoples' bodies. My size is the size I am regardless if it's plus or minus. Who really cares?
The point is, I love my body and do I sometimes criticize it? Of course. Do I get upset at it when it decides to eat a cup of nutella ice cream from Carvel (which is my weakness)? Absolutely. But that doesn't mean I am not utterly proud of the way I look. Let me stop myself here before this turns into a righteous post on how everyone is beautiful and forget what everyone else thinks because 1) that is easier said than done and 2) I think you guys have read enough of those type of posts. BUT, what I do want to leave you with is this: If it feels comfortable and you are rocking the sh*t out of it, then I say wear it! Make it you and make it work.
