Wearing: SHIRT: Faballey Curve; JEANS: Lawman Page3(old); SHOES: New Look
Afternoons always meant no work and all play for me. As a kid I would eagerly wait for afternoons and the long hours of playtime with my friends. Even last periods in school were spent in anticipation and plotting out game plans. However those days are long gone by. Solitary afternoons still remain very special. Rarely though I get to enjoy them, afternoon strolls provide a respite from my hectic schedule.
Yesterday was one such solitary afternoon that I enjoyed walking around the quite lanes engrossed in my own thoughts. Even while I take the pictures I can still think of a thousand things unaffected with the motions of my hands. The shirt has been an refreshing addition to my regular top-jeans uniform. I have never taken to shirts that were picked from the women’s section ever since I started wearing them. I have always worn only those that belonged to either my dad or my grandpa. This shirt though changed my mind considering that it fits so well and because I have been into blues lately. My choice was of course to pair it with jeans but no doubt with a skirt it would look equally good.
I also remembered yesterday how conscious I use to be regarding my body even a few years back. I hated any sign of extra fat that could show through clothes and my desperation to hide them. Yet these days I find myself at ease in my own skin instead of struggling to change it. The struggle with your body is something that I believe every individual goes through and I still do. But the dislike and distaste for being in the body that I am in seems to have gradually worn off. Body positive movements all around the world, the work of so many individuals and the changes everywhere serve as a daily lesson and reminder that whatever the size or physical condition of a person, everyone is worthy of love. Quite afternoon strolls thus serve as my think tank and yesterday was a good one. For now its time to go and rest my weary legs and an even more over worked mind.
