AD IN COLLABORATION WITH SELECTED
I managed to change my clothes three times yesterday. It started out being cold and then it turned warmer and finally boiling. But, oh, how I LOVE this season. Wool and bare legs. Seriously. The fact that I can wear dresses without risking to get pelvic inflammatory diseases (oh well, I’ve got that so never mind; but you know – figuratively speaking, it’s still hot) as I can’t fit into any of my trousers, hehe… hooray for this summer. Yes, it was tough for around about a month but the side effects, these warm days even if it’s autumn – that’s a gift.
My outfit was pink on pink on pink. In the entire history of the blog, has it ever been this pink? Not as far as I recall. The coat, the knit and the dress are all from Selected Femme’s 10th-anniversary collection. They have taken some of their most popular items and brushed them off in upgraded versions, especially this coat – so beautiful and very soft.
It’s not that the blog has been drowning in outfits lately. Julie and I have both been away on holiday and generally busy, and then I gotta admit that I haven’t been feeling up for it as often as I used to. It does take some effort to strut around like a cuddly cat in front of a glass optical.
The other day a friend burst out, ‘Wow, it really shows in your face that you’ve gained weight.’ Well, gee, thank you! Haha! Yes, I’ve good some extra padding all over, but I don’t think my face has grown that much. And if it has, what can I do about it? It wasn’t that the person encouraged me to do anything about it, but it’s the kind of remark I don’t really know how to handle.
I must admit that I still find it a bit odd with all of those comments you get about your body when you’re pregnant. That my physical appearance is something on which others feel the need to express their views. For the most part those, ‘wow, you’re big’ or ‘are you not due yet?!’ I still don’t quite know how to reciprocate. And in the very same day, someone else might come over and exclaim, ‘wow, you’re so tiny.’ It says something about the way you should react to that stuff, right? Never mind!
The hardest part was actually my boobs – the fact that so many people were checking them out, especially in the beginning. I felt quite sensitive about that. For those of you who’re naturally big-breasted, I imagine that you frequently get comments, good and bad, and I salute you. People’s attention is overwhelming. I suddenly remember this post about my breasts, an ooooold post. They’re exposed to so much throughout life, those wonderful thingies (regardless of the size, that is).
In summary; more outfits on the blog again, yes?
