All sizes are beautiful! Don't be ashamed of your number or keep it from living your life and doing what you love. There is no perfect or wrong size. It doesn't determine our worth and nobody has the right to judge someone's health by their size. So let's show the world that every size can be happy and that we are not ashamed!
How to participate:I would love to see all different sizes represented in this link up. Whether you are a 0 or 32, participate! This is a weekly feature so each link up will be open for one week. You can add your link anytime during the week. All genders, sexes and non-genders are welcome to join in. Use whatever sizing you are most familiar with. You can link up with me every week with a new post or join in every once in a while! The rules are simple. Post a photo of yourself on your blog, being stylish that week. Post a full body shot, so head to toe! State your size in your blog post or with a graphic on your photo. No diet talk, weight loss talk, negativity or any type of body shaming allowed. This is about being happy with your size and shape, not because it is socially acceptable, healthy or better than others. Then come back here and add your link using the link tool at the end of this post.
What's the deal with most outfit photos being straight on? It really perturbs me when people are worried about which angle or side they are being photographed from. I have been told to lean forward in photographs so that the photo is more flattering. So that my head being closer to the lens will appear larger, therefore making my body look smaller. On the other end, I have been accused of taking my photos in a way that makes me look smaller and then was asked why I was so fat. Alrighty.
lacy sweetheart top : thrifted
floral vintage skirt : fat fancy

I love all my angles. Double-chin, wide body, pudgy arms and a little peek of my chub rub shorts are not a problem. This is me! I walk around in this body all day and people see me from every direction in all sorts of positions and I would rather see the real me in photographs. I would much rather have an album full of candid photographs and toothy grins to look back on when I am 80.
Our clothes are not just stuck to the front of us like paper dolls. So why don't we show more than just the front? Let's get rid of the idea of our "best angle"!
I challenge you to mix it up this week. Let's see those angles!
