I’m loving all the white trends popping up everywhere this summer! Dresses, flowy tops, skirts, denim, shoes…it’s all so light and airy-looking!
Now, let’s just pretend for a second that there’s no logistical problem for mothers of small children to wear white (ha!) and instead, talk about the other issue many women have with wearing white: the fear of looking bigger.
Facts are facts: darker colors are more slimming than whites or pastels. But take it from a girl who has been self-conscious of her thighs for about 2 decades and hear me out…
Nobody cares but you!!
We all deal with our own personal body image demons and that’s a topic for a whole other post (or series!), but when it comes to fashion, I choose to embrace clothes that reflect my style, make me feel amazing and fit in with my lifestyle. Unlike the insecure teenager I once was, I no longer have the time or inclination to sit around worrying about whether or not my butt looks big in the pants I’m in.
Don’t get me wrong – there are certain styles that don’t flatter me and I stay away from those simply because they don’t make me feel as comfortable as my favorites. But when it comes to everything else, I’m jumping in with both feet.
So, ladies…go get yourself something white and beautiful (arm yourself with an awesome stain remover) and flaunt your stuff!
I’m loving these 3 looks with my favorite white jeans (I added the distressing) and have worn them with just about every top in my closet!
So let’s hear it…what article of clothing could you see yourself rocking in white??

You’re AWESOME!!! Thank You for this post as I truly do want more women to feel this way about themselves! Its time to STOP this madness of insecurity of ones self & LIVE! Live in white, in a bikini, (yes, even in public!), short skirts/dresses/shorts no matter the bits of cellulite! Life’s TOO short for insecurity! I don’t mean go out lookin like a trollup/tramp/skank, but if you WANT to wear something but WONT because you fear what someone else is going to think, maybe, just maybe that other person is thinking, “WOW, sure wish I was that secure”!! YOU ROCK
