Once upon a time, I was scared. Scared of what, exactly?
Well. Revealing my arms. Wearing an outfit like this back in high school - forget it. Perhaps the biggest insecurity I had about myself was not my tummy, but my arms. My arms are bigger in terms of proportion... it was (and still is) difficult to find tops that fit my arms just right, while fitting my bust and tummy just right too. Either I find something just right in the bust or tummy department, but the arms are too tight, or I find arms that are just right but way too loose elsewhere.
It's taken a few years but I've overcome this fear of revealing my arms. As big as they are, they're a part of me and it's not fair to love just one part of your body, I think we should love every single curve and every single part of our bodies... because it's the only one that we have in this lifetime. Hating my arms won't do me any good, right?

Anyways, I felt like a vintage-ey housewife in this outfit. Even though it's September it's very hot out in my city, like 30 degrees Celsius hot, reminiscent of July days. Looks like layering's got to wait, but I'm not complaining. Once summer is gone, I'll be begging for it to come back.
So that's all for today and until next time!
