Thrifting one day, this shirt caught my eye. Maybe it was the orange rope, or the overall nautical feeling...I'm not sure. But, I snatched it up and bought it without trying it on.
That was about 10-15 lbs ago. I've been working diligently to lose the last of my baby weight from baby number 3. I did NOT enjoy the way this top seemed to hug my middle when I first bought it, but I hoped that once a few pounds were shed- I would love it.
And happily, now I do.

If you haven't yet, try thifting! I recently did an interview with JustOne on why I only buy second-hand and about my second-hand lifestyle. You can read it here.
