sounds like a dumb question I know.. I am clueless when it comes to clothing. I am sure I could put something together if I had a ton of money and could just go and get anything I wanted. Am I weird that all I wear is blue jeans and black t-shirts? lol.
I ask because I do have a cute black skirt that I finally feel comfortable wearing out in public but I could not for the life of me find something that matched it. I tried goodwill but, again I just kinda looked at everything kinda clueless. lol.
I guess I will also post my semi progress pictures.. I still have a lot of work to do, but I am getting there.. the healthy way...
240 ish (I HATE THIS PICTURE OF ME! but all the rest are just face shots.. ugh....lol)
199 or so
oh gosh and photobucket hates me.. never re sizes them instantly..sorry for the big pictures..
you look awesome!!!!
no, it's not weird. I think it would be more weird if you tried to wear clothes you didn't feel comfortable in.
i'm not an expert, but if i had a black skirt i would probably wear some kind of bright coloured tank top with it. depending on the skirt. is it fancy? or more casual and how long is it? black is good, because you can wear any colour with it. plus it hides stuff
Ditto to what Janice said, You look fabulous!!!
If you are not comfortable in what you wear, then don't wear it. Jeans and black tops are just fine if that's what makes you comfortable. At least you know what you like. For the black skirt, I agree with Janice....any color can go with black. If one tank top doesn't make you feel comfortable, then layer it. It does kind of depend on the dressiness of the skirt, but any color would be a go with black.
ok, i went and found some examples it doesn't even have to be these colours or design, they are just examples depending on the skirt and what your style is
this one you can wear a tank top underneath, either white or black. black might look better with this colour because it is bright
if you have a top that is a little plain you can always wear a necklace with it
You look great! So much healthier looking!
I'd pair a black skirt with a printed top or a brighter solid top and a pair of sandals. Just don't go too long on the top or it might look funny especially if the skirt is shorter.

Ditto what everyone else said. You look fabulous! I'm the worst person to ask. I dress like a slobby grad student most of the time. I go for colorful tops and neutral pants so that everything matches. Is there a Buffalo Exchange nearby? They're much choosier than Good Will about the clothes they take and I always find it easier to find pants there. Pants that fit are so F-ing hard to find but having a bunch of brands in front of you makes it a lot easier. Shop the deep discount racks at Kohl's or Target. And don't worry about buying an entire wardobe, especially since you're doing such an awesome job losing weight and you're bound to loose more. Just buy a few pieces that you feel comfortable and pretty in!
You look terrific! I suck at clothing advice, I wear the same 5 outfits to work every week. For variety, I might change the order of days on which I wear them And my go-to dress down outfit is blue jeans and a black tank top, so I hear you on that! With a black skirt, I agree any color would work well with that. I love black skirts and pants because I can just change the top and I consider that a new "outfit" without having to get another skirt/pants to go with the tops.
You look great! You've really been working hard and it shows!
Thanks everyone I am weird.. I think it is because I have always been very self conscious.. my go to color has always been black.. works in my favor that most rock band shirts are black I need to post a picture of my skirt.. it is black, light fabric and it has tan-ish white flowers on it (not old lady style flowers lol).. I never thought to add a bold color.. or even tan may work too.. thanks everyone for the advice. Your links were really helpful Janice.
Erin yes that is why I am trying goodwill.. they are pretty expensive though.. I need to check out the other resale shops in town.. maybe that would work out for the weekend. I also need shoes.. I almost got some at goodwill but dh vetoed them because they were too tall and looked too ho like.. I think it was just weird for me to be taller than him! haha!
I live in workout pants and tank tops, and they don't always match. Since I'm taller, a lot of pants are a tad short on me so I look ridiculous. To counter that, I have cut off a few of these pants at the knees. Some have holes and others have paint stains. I need new clothes so bad it's not even funny. And right now I have to consider that I need to be able to nurse in any clothes I wear.
My clothes from my working days were generally grey and black that way it's easy for me to look half decent since I have very little fashion sense at all. My only suggestion would be to try on everything, even if it's a style that you don't think you like - it might look great on you.
You look amazing. Good work! I am jealous and inspired!
