I secretly have wanted to be a Dancing Queen, but I’m a Comfort Queen (I looked this up in the Urban Dictionary to be sure I wasn’t some new kind of misfit). There are certain looks I love, but are just too painful to wear.
I see them all the time on Pinterest, and want to copy them, but I know myself too well: I hate to be uncomfortable, even for beauty. These looks often involve form-fitting skirts, fitted tops, sky-high shoes, and cruel jewelry.
|Gorgeous, but I have to breathe, eat, and walk. ASOS.|
|So pretty, but I would feel it all day. Nordie‘s.|
Because I am a Comfort Queen, who still wants to look good, I depend on pieces like these:
- Slim but not tight jeans. I like some breathing room at the waist and thighs. I always “size-up.”
- Camisoles with built-in bras instead of real bras. This wouldn’t be ideal for large-busted women.
- Relaxed tees with relaxed armholes.
- V-neck tops and blouses. Keeps my neck from feeling crowded! This top, from Nordie’s has all the right stuff: roomy armhole, open neck and lots of style:
- Low heels, wedges, and flats. Need I say more? These wedges from Nine West are right up my alley:
- Jewelry I can’t feel. Like this pretty resin bracelet from Kenneth Jay Lane. Or these colorful drop earrings.
- Skirts instead of pants and shorts.
How about you? Will you suffer a little for the sake of style?
Have a lovely evening, and stay fabulous,
