living reflections from a dream

shirt: forever21
shorts: delia's
shoes: forever21
headband: pac sun
necklace: gift from my lovely sister

After enjoying a wonderful meal with Tony at a local pizzeria, I paid the bill and got up to leave. As I reached the door, I noticed a table of 6 older women staring at me. I paused and looked down to see if I got pizza sauce on my shirt. After seeing no obvious blemish I became quite perplexed. Confused, I smiled at them and turned to leave. As I turned, I heard one woman not-so-discreetly mutter to the woman next to her, "My gosh, could you get any skinnier?" I turned around and saw the other woman shaking her head judgmentally. I heard other whispers from the other women which I couldn't quite make out, but I did pick up words like "anorexic". As I exited the pizzeria and walked down the street, I was absolutely flabbergasted by these comments. I mean, they had just sat three tables away while I stuffed my mouth full of pizza, how could they possibly believe that I was anorexic?

I am very proud of my body and I take very good care of myself and my health. However, when I was younger I was embarrassed that the other girls my age had much more shapely figures then I did. Now that I am in college, I have come to terms with what I was born with, but comments that imply that there is something wrong with me still bother me somewhat.

Sorry for the rant, but it was on my mind. In this outfit of the day I am introducing my favorite shorts. =)



  1. yo have lovely eyes hon!!!! you should have photos that are close up!!! LOVELY!!!

  2. First of all, people who make comments like those are usually unhappy with themselves! And secondly, I love that necklace! This is such a cute look.

    Thanks for visiting us, your blog is lovely! We're now happily following! :)

  3. I love your look! yellow is so nice on you! and the necklace is adorable - your sister made a great gift or you!
    as for your body.. come on! they are just jealous, you have eaten a lot pizza and still so skinny. A body like yours is a gift, you'll undrestand when people around you will be getting fatter and fatter and you will still remain skinny and young with body. at least that's what my bf says everytime someone leaves a comment on his superskinny body!
    Following your blog - it's adorable, hope you'll check out mine :)

  4. Argh! There is so much body judging in the world. No one can ever be "right". You're too big, too thin, to tall, too short, too shapely, not busty enough...women really need to stop snarking on each other. We do it to ourselves and too each other! We have enough problems to deal with, why add this into the mix??

  5. these people probably don't have anything else to worry about... or they're kind of jealous of you, because let's face it, we all try hard to be pr at least to look skinny. really, you shouldn't bother at all with those kind of comments... let they think what they want, you knowing that you're healthy is all that matters!

    and i love your looks :)
