Maxi Skirt and Crop Top

maxi skirt and crop top

I'm not going to lie. This outfit wasn't meant to be shared. It wasn't even my planned outfit for that day. I had intended to wear the skirt with a graphic t-shirt but couldn't get the proportions right. On a whim, I pulled this crop top from my drawer and threw it on. To my surprise, I didn't hate it, even though two of my new scars were on display.

Obviously I didn't go anywhere since we've been quarantining the past two weeks, but it still took a good bit of courage for me to wear this outfit all day. I've been struggling with body positivity for the past year or so, pretty much ever since I first started struggling with all the issues associated with why I had a hysterectomy. It's hard to feel good about your body when your weight starts going up for seemingly no reason and no matter what you do you stay bloated. Needless to say, I stopped wearing a lot of my favorite clothes and stayed far away from anything even resembling form-fitting.

My body is returning to its old shape, slowly. Like I said in my Monday Motivation post for this week, I'm working on building my stamina and muscle tone back up, but already I can comfortably wear most of my pre-adenomyosis clothes. Am I where I'd like to be size-wise? Not yet, but I am celebrating this return to a happier me. And even though I'm still self-conscious about these photos, I had fun taking them, and that is a victory in itself.

Outfit Details: Both my skirt and shirt are several years old so no longer available. This top is pretty similar to mine and this skirt is pretty close.
