I realized the other day when I was reading a fellow bloggers post about her scoliosis post which was so brave to write about, hats off to you Lauren! I realized that I don’t really like to show this much of my arm. I either have thick tank top, draped jacket, sleeves, or layers on my arm. I just don’t like them, they use to be smaller and magically got bigger. Okay, maybe not magically. But I want us all to love our bodies just the way we are and only change it when our health needs it or just to feel healthy.

This o outfit I rocked out a J.Crew Factory tank that I love and a skirt I scored a year ago!! AND I still love it!!! Plus those booties are great way to get ready for fall. Also this bucket bag to add color to my noncolor wardrobe.
