Someone approached me the other day and asked me why I always wear my high-waisted leggings.
Uh…. Hello! Why not wear leggings?! I just gave birth, my pre-pregnancy clothes don’t fit and my pregnancy clothes obviously don’t fit me. And to top it off, I’m always home taking care of my two kids lol
So, why not leggings?!
I was so upset at the question because this woman knows that I just had a kid, I’m barely getting any sleep, I’m breastfeeding on demand… I mean what else am I supposed to wear lol
Am I supposed to wear heels and a dress everyday?! Uh I don’t think so!
Why are some women so fixated on looking good and decked out all the time?
Is it really necessary especially when we are cooking, cleaning and running errands.
I must confess I would love to wear a nice pair of jeans, but I feel so physically busted because my stomach isn’t back to how it was pre-pregnancy that it’s impossible for my jeans to fit me well right now. Also, I haven’t lost all the weight that I have wanted to lose so the cute pair of shorts that I once wore can’t even go past my hips!
For now, so what if my leggings are my go to bottoms?!
I don’t like waist trainers, as this person suggested me to wear under my clothes, they’re too darn uncomfortable. Why not let me be?
There is nothing wrong with leggings sisters.
Don’t let anyone make you feel less just because you don’t match their standards.
For a moment she did make me feel worse about appearance. I began to second guess myself. I thought to myself, “maybe I should wear a dress and maybe shoes with small heel” “maybe I should wear a waist trainer so that my stomach won’t sag.”
So many thoughts crossed my mind. I allowed her comments to make me feel bad about my appearance, but I shook it off immediately.
The reality is that we do have to take care of our appearance and try to look nice, especially for our husbands, but not to the extreme of wearing heels and full on makeup everyday. Again there is nothing wrong with wearing leggings!
Those are my two cents for the day!
Thank you for reading. God bless!
