I just have a very simple question. What do you wear and keep the PUG image when you are not feeling well?
A little background on me, I have a disorder with my colon and my stomach. This disorder constantly leaves me with belly aches, severe abdominal pains, bloat, and my stomach will distend out to the point that I look like I am at least 7 months pregnant which is very painful. I normally will just wear Capri/jeans depending on the weather and a tank with a cardigan when this happens, but at times even those are very uncomfortable and I 'will usually end up in one of my hubbys baggy t-shirts and sweats or yoga pants. So it there a way to still stay in the PUG style and be comfortable?
Hugs and kisses
Vickie, I am sorry to hear about your disorder. It must be very difficult to cope with. I am not going to make any specific suggestions. But I am going to say that being pin up is really something that starts from the inside. It is about feeling good about yourself and expressing it. I think that it is much more about loving yourself and being proud about who you are. To me that is what comes through loud and clear when I see my pin up sisters. And hopefully I am able to express that in my life. I am not sure if that answers your question. But it is my take on it. Take care!
Hi! Thanks for sharing, Vickie. I have a few tips. I hope they provide a happy, comfy alternative to tees and sweats!
Look good and feel better, Vickie! @ ;-)
Bloating is no fun! Sorry about your troubles. I have similar stomach problems, and the other night made it worse by taking a few tums over the course of 24 hours. For a few days after I was so bloated that I looked pregnant. I ended up putting on a body shaper and wearing these light-weight high-waist black pleated shorts with lace along the bottom seam. For the top I wore a baggy striped shirt tucked in on one side, to try to hide the bloat. When it got cold later on in the evening, I wore a really baggy, long turquoise sweater.
Also, I drink a shot of apple cider vinegar in the morning and at night, which helps with digestion and decreases bloating. I normally mix an ounce of vinegar with 8 oz of water and a bit of honey. If you're willing, you should try it - of course, doctor permitted - although I do know that it is very good for your body and aids in stomach woes.
Hope that helps!
I wear yoga pants like they are cigarette pants. :) Just get skinny ones, and throw on some chucks and a t shirt. Ponytail, bandeau, and you're good to go! :) That aside, I completely agree with what the wonderful women above me are saying. Rock on sisters :D
On my off days I like to reach for some stretchy cotton capris, a graphic Tee and my low top converse. To keep a pinch of pin up in the look I toss my hair up in a simple bandana, a little mascara and some chapstick and I'm all set and comfy :)
