OOTD| Shifty Denim

I can't believe I'm saying this but... I'm bored. 
The thing about being a teacher is as much as we look forward to having a few weeks of absolute bliss over the summer, it's actually very lonely unless you have lots of teacher pals or a teacher partner who you can make plans with. As much as I'm enjoying being at home with the minis, I'm desperate for adult conversation and company during the day; but of course, the adults I would love to converse with are at work! 
However, one thing I am loving most about the summer holiday despite the lack of the summer sun, is the opportunity to wear the contents of my wardrobe as I please. There is no dress code to adhere to, no length or plunge restrictions and I'm free to wear what I want. 
This denim shift dress was purchased last year from New Look. It was ridiculously tight back then so I buried it deep in my wardrobe. Although I haven't lost as much weight as I would have liked to by now, I am certainly lighter than I was this time last year. 
On the subject of weight, I'm at a cross roads with what to do about it all. I gave up Slimming World as I was paying to actually NOT follow it each week and my commitment to healthy eating and exercise remains inconsistent. I would still love to lose about a stone but I'm not sure I have it in me. *Sigh*
In all honesty I love food. I do. I really do. The dilemma is, do I just accept that this is me and continue to be wobbly or do I really try hard to lose the rest of the weight? Decisions, decisions.
Dress: New Look | Sandals: H&M

  1. I would actually steal this whole look including the hair ☺ I totally understand your weight dilemma because I'm there too like do I accept this is just me or do I push to loose weight cuz honestly I don't really know what the best my body can be since having children, so this might be my new body type and the only thing I can do is simply tone and try not to get any bigger.

    It's hard really cuz we as mums and women do put a lot of pressure on ourselves to loose weight then feel bad after paying to join some diet club or gym and hating it and not going back.

    I think if you have high self esteem and can dress in clothes you love that suit your figure and you're not fat and unhealthy and the weight gain isnt causing medical concern then I say continue to be happy in your own skin and work with what you have ��
