I'm Happy, but My Wallet Isn't!

Ummmm yeah. True story right there.

I have no idea why but I have been SO freakin happy lately...wait...that's a lie.  I do know why!!! I FEEL SO AMAZING!!!! I am happy and confident and for the first time in forever I feel like I am beautiful and I don't need a stupid boy to tell me that!  I already know it.
(Please note: I really am not conceited. Seriously. I'm shy for real. Kinda.)

Me in my new coach sunnies.  See, I am so happy i'm like glowing.  And its not because i'm pregs!
You can just tell I am a happy girl, no faking!

The past 3 weeks I have been floating around life and just always smiling.  Obviously it has to do with a few major things:

  1. Losing weight and actually being able to tell.
  2. Running a mile without stopping, then running even more!!! *best ever* 
  3. The Julie Show- Doing what I want, where I want, with who I want. 
  4. Kicking negative influences out. of. my. life.
  5. SHOPPING


Um...#5 is why my wallet isn't happy.  I seriously have probably spent close to $500 on clothes in the past 3 weeks. Wow, just seeing that number makes me want to cry die. Oh well...I don't care.  You know why?? Because it makes me feel amazing and I can do what I want with the money I work HARD to make! :)  It feels so good walking into a store and being able to try clothes on and buy them without having to shop extended sizes online like in the past.  (I still have to do this with one store, but one day I will be a 14!)  While I was in TN, I walked my (cute) ass into the Gap and walked out with 2 new outfits that I will rock.

I LOVE fashion....love it.  So much.  When I wear a cute outfit my whole day is amazing and I strut around like I am the cutest thing everrrr. I own it.  Yeah I am still "plus size" but that doesn't mean I can't be cute and confident! So on instagram I started taking pics of my outfits (ootd) and posting them on there.  I really want to break through this "idea" that big girls don't have fashion.  That is SO wrong and I know so many adorably cute plus size girls that have amazing fashion sense.  I am going to be posting more pics of the outfits I put together, but here are a few of my recent ones.

So obviously there is still room for improvement, but I love these looks.

My Nautical Boston Look

My Rocker Girl Look

My Plus Size Hollister Look
I am going to keep posting pics like these, so follow me on instagram!! BeautifulChunk

As far as a style...I like many.  I am currently obsessed with the nautical boston look.  You know...navy & white, red and navy, anchors, white cardis and all that cute stuff.  I also like to rock my "plus size hollister" look with my big sunglasses, ripped jeans and flip flops.  I also like to dress up in cute dresses, heavy eye makeup and heels for my city look. I am all over the place, but I can't help it...I love it all!!  As long is it looks good and you rock clothes that fit your body shape, then who cares!

So basically this post is about confidence and how it is the best accessory a person can wear.  It doesn't matter if you are wearing a $3,000 dress or a $30 dress.  What matters is how that dress makes you feel and how confidently you rock it! So remember to hold your head up high, smile and live every day like it's your last!

Wow that was so corny...i'm sorry.  But it's true!!! :)
