Highwaters

I have a love hate relationship with bodysuits honestly. On one had, I don’t have to worry about my shirt staying tucked into my jeans. On the other, there’s chafing. But these jeans are my absolute favorite ones. And to think I found them by accident when I first discovered thredUP (an online thrift shop). If you’re a thrifter, then you know how stressful it can be to find that perfect item. You’d think it would be easier with online stores but even those can take what seems like endless filtering before you find something that screams “buy me!”, and then its in the wrong size…So yeah, I got really lucky. They weren’t supposed to be high waters but when they came, the tapered cut looked a little weird so I had to do was fold them up a tiny bit. I like them better like this anyway.IMG_9268IMG_9221About jelly shoes (WHAT ARE THOOOOOOOOOSE), I’m still not sure how I feel. If you grew up in Nigeria then I probably don’t even need to tell you the history of these things. My mom still calls the “Omni polish” i.e. they’re responsive to any kind of cleaning attempt (or lack thereof), because, well, they’re plastic. But then they’re comfortable and coincidentally, the only white shoes I own.IMG_9267IMG_9222As a side note, I’d just like to add that body positivity is a big part of self-love. Everyone who knows me knows how hairy I am. So by society’s standards, I should probably have shaved my arms and back before I wore this body suit. Not to mention the acne scars from a really bad allergic reaction I had a while ago that still haven’t completely faded. But I happen to like my arm hair even though the good lord knows how uncomfortable friends and family made me feel about it before I was confident enough to tell them to suck it. And almost everyone has some issues with their skin when you look closely. Love yourselves guys and set your own standards.IMG_9264
