A breakthough in my clothing choices + River Island

So as you know if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I have an issue with water retention and swelling. Swelling is caused by my current bcp and the depo. Not fun and something in the middle of being fixed.


That makes it hard to deal with outfits and choosing clothing. Buying clothes you constantly think will this fit? What happens on bad days?

That is when I started to think maybe get squishy days outfits. Meaning outfits that are great for days when I am feeling all bloated and swollen. I bought some clothes a size or two bigger. I know that sounds crazy, but hear me out. This means I can adjust the clothes around my issue.  This outfit does exactly that.

I bought this outfit from River Island , Amazon, and Asos. And I bought it bigger than I normally wear. I was able to adjust the paper bag faux leather trousers throughout the day. It was great and I was comfortable! I think I am on to something. Days when you wake up all puffy, wear the bigger stuff and adjust! Perfect!

And by feeling good about my look I was able to accessorize accordingly! Love it! I wore my new River Island heels(the are on sale under $30!) and my new Sugar Fix star pear Earrings!

I feel like this break through idea for me is a great one! I love how I felt wearing these pieces and I was able to wear it ALL FREAKING DAY! Which is amazing! And rare! Nothing beats that mood booster. Nothing. Well except when your kid is sick and then you catch it!

So..yeah I am sick.

Thanks G.
