This week my bestie in the whole wide world has agreed to be a guest blogger! She is going to do a week of outfit posts for you all. She is a beautiful, fun & super smart mom,
mad scientist & professor with great personal style. I'm super excited to see what she shares! Yayyy!
Before I begin introducing myself, here's an image of what I look like on a normal day (faces blacked out for professional anonymity):
Not the cutest or most flattering attire, I know.
But it is super comfortable and protective from bodily fluids that might splash during surgical procedures...

When I'm not
Fitted dresses are truly confidence-boosting and figure enhancing, even though it may feel completely opposite in theory. If I am having a bad body day, I tend to want to hide in baggy, unflattering clothes. This ends up making me feel worse. However, I feel confident and proud of my curves in a fitted outfit like this. I'm a size 10-12 and have grown to embrace and LOVE my curves as I've gotten older!
The one thing I'm not crazy about is the belt that came with the dress, because it creates the puckering you can see on my right. However, I haven't found the right navy blue (the dress is blue, although in the picture it looks black) or tan to go with it... any suggestions for an alternate color?
(Also, I apologize for the poor quality of this image. My 6 year old daughter helped me to take the picture, and my 2 year old stuck her finger on the camera lens sometime during the process... one day I will hire a professional photographer to photograph me looking fabulous on a regular basis.)
