Bare Midriff: My Comfort Level
Monday, June 9, 2014
Being in my 30's and having two kids, I'm definitely not as comfortable showing my midriff as I used to be.
It's not even about body image. It's about what seems appropriate for my age and occasion.
High-waisted pants that show skin above my belly button aren't an issue.
Low-slung hipsters on the other hand, are a completely different story.
The reason I felt comfortable in this All-Saints top, is mainly because of the crocheted fringe hanging down.
It doesn't over-expose my stomach, which I like.
To add more comfort, I paired it with this velvet blazer which made me feel 100% appropriate picking up my kids and running errands.
Also notice nothing is too fitted. Wearing these non body-hugging flares makes the look appear easy and not over done.
Typically I stick with high-waisted pants when it comes to crops.
But when you love a piece, you make it work.
