Prints Matter | Skulls + Paisley Blues

Jewelry: Jewelmint Bow Ring, Eternity Necklace

I never did like skulls. I love Alexander McQueen but couldn’t bring myself to buy his scarves due to the large printed skulls on it. To me skulls represent danger and poison. However, one look at the Zara blouse with the skull buttons made me laugh! The skull buttons are such a contrast to the vintage print of the blouse. Somehow the skulls made the blouse modern in a way.

The skirt with its paisley print is beautiful and when worn, makes me feel luscious! However the split opening is not classy when walking and a breeze lifts up my skirts. I tried pinning the opening together, but that created unattractive wrinkles in the silk.

So the debate continues. Should I keep the skirt that is really beautiful or return due to potential embarrassment fears?

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.
