When Insecurity Rears Its Head

I've got to be honest here. I had an outfit post planned for today. I had given myself an entire week and a half to take the photos. The day I finally attempted to (Tuesday), I couldn't bring myself to fully step in front of the camera. I'm on my period, I'm incredibly bloated, and I'm incredibly insecure about my body again.

I think there are a few reasons behind this. I've put on too much weight in the last year, and I've become extremely aware of it. That fact is made more apparent by the nearly-Summer heat, and the fact that I can't wear a simple sundress because my thighs rub together. Things like that, you know?

Anyway, I couldn't bring myself to step in front of a camera this week, but I took these photos instead. If you are feeling insecure right now, own it. Own it, indulge in some self care, and build yourself back up. That's what I'll be doing.


  1. I'm sorry to hear you're not in a good headspace right now Amber. I really, really hope you find yourself feeling a million times better next week, or month - however long it takes!


    1. You're always so kind, thank you Gabrielle!
