Outfit of the Day: Crop Top Confidence
I’m so excited to show you guys this outfit!! This… was more than an outfit to me. It was tummy liberation! I wore this to hang out with my best friend who was home from California. She luckily brought some warm weather with her. I had bought this top the day before, a little reluctantly. It was somewhat see-through and when I moved every which way, you could see parts of my stomach. I have not shown my stomach to anyone in public since I had been shamed in a short top at the tender age of 6. It was almost 20 years of body policing that I shook off with this stupid striped top! I kept telling my friend how oddly proud I felt in it. I felt so brave and confident. She gave me a raspberry on the little patch of skin. It was just… oddly amazing and empowering. I felt like I reclaimed my body. I strongly encourage all of you, of any shape or size, to reclaim your body in any way you want to!
