Let’s Keep It Real
I was almost going to be a hypocrite and not post these photos because all I can see is Angie, my tummy, enjoying her moment in the spotlight.
However, right before I almost descended into the pits of hypocrisy I realized 3 things.
FIRSTLY, it’s the skirt’s fault! That’s right. The fabric COULD be more flattering on my Angie. However, I love the florals and that practically any body shape can slither into this garden of florals and make it work. So I’m making it work.
Secondly, I would never tell my niece that her tummy looks fat/pudgy in any outfit. I will always tell her she’s perfect, all bumps included. One should not dispense truisms one does not truly believe, or at least attempt to practice.
Thirdly, that sweet and salty Angie’s popcorn (plus all her sibling bags that I went through to verify that sweet and salty was indeed the best one), has not been devouring itself daily for the past month. And that sweet and salty popcorn has also not been hiding itself away from the kids at the VERY back of the pantry, so it can annihilate itself without me.
And that sweet and salty popcorn did not tear the latest bag open in utter desperation and practically lick every last tiny kernel from the bottom of the bag. AND, that sweet and salty popcorn did not whisper sweetly to itself – YOLO (you only live once) – every time it disappeared into the abyss of one’s tummy.
So in summary, you can rock this outfit and any outfit, with your tummy and still be stylish. Plus, fabric makes a big difference in keeping the Angie’s of the world…in. Also, angles. Angles in photos can reveal less. But meh…
- I actually have to work out to maintain the shapely roundness of this tummy.
- My sons use Angie (again I’ve named my tummy to be closer to her), as a pillow and rub their faces in her, and find her very warm and comfy. So that’s an upside right? Angie’s there for the kids!
- REALLY and truly, in the big picture of life, it’s NOT that serious!
