Celebratory Denim! #everydayrealness

Hey Lovelies! Today marked a special day for me and I had to share it with you guys. The reason I have not been posting as often as I should is very simple. I don't go anywhere! Lately, I've only been attending work and church. Fortunately for me, (unfortunately for the blog) I don't have to "get dressed" for either. Sure, I will get cute from time to time but I don't consider it to be worthy of a blog post. I am not the type of blogger that gets dressed just for the sake of taking photos. Trust me, I have tons of  "blog worthy" fits, I'm just waiting on the perfect time to wear them.
Hey, do you guys remember this photo? I shared it in November (I think) in reference to my fitness goals. Clearly this is an old photo of myself (in all of my ratchet glory haha) at my pre-baby weight. I have expressed that this is my goal "size". Well...
Today I was able to fit into these jeans for the first time in a long time. I almost never wear jeans because I don't feel like they flatter my shape and I just find them to be stiff and uncomfortable. Hopefully that will change now that I'm starting to drop dress sizes. That doesn't mean that I don't own any because I have few (most are too small) but every now and again I break them out of the archives.  I have lost a total of 34 pounds so far and while I am not the at the same weight in the above photo, I am fitting into those jean, Hunty!
I love a skinny jean every now and again but I never overdress my denim. I always keep it simple! I've paired them with a white collared shirt and an open tuxedo vest. I kept my accessories simple, wearing small studded earring and layered necklaces. Of course a skinny jean is not a jean without a sky high heel. I love my rhinestone and studded stilettos. They added the perfect amount of glam to my look. My rule of thumb, if the outfit is simple, the shoes need to be serving. I know these photos don't do my babies any justice but these shoes turned heads!
Y'all thought I was playing when I said "Operation Healthy Curves". I'm not one of those people who's always talking about "I'm going to the gym" and yet there is no physical change. When I set my mind to weight loss I make it happen. I still have a long way to go but I am proud of every pound that I have shed. I've stopped posting on the blog about my weight loss journey because you guys don't seem too interested. However, if you want to follow my progress, I share everything on Instagram. Follow me @lashesandstilettos.
 I didn't list the details of  this look because I figured that everyone has this look in their closet.
