Today I went to day 2 of Panorama NYC. I’ve had this blue crop top for about 2-3 years but today was my first time wearing it, ever. Idk why I bought it, TBH. I thought I would wear it with some high waisted maxi skirt but it didn’t really work out. I never found the perfect skirt to go with it. Fast forward to this weekend, it happens to be hot as balls in NYC and I had already bought outfits for this weekend but I knew that I would sweat right thru them. So when I woke up this morning, I decided that today was the day that I would wear this blue top. I’ll admit, I wore a cool grey wrap over it because I didn’t want all the negative attention and street harassment on the train, I just wanted to “show off” at panorama. When I first put my outfit on, I was super excited, I snapped it to my friends. I got comfortable in it very soon. As I was leaving my building, I felt different, I felt like I belonged, to what, idk, but I felt pretty at ease. When I finally got to panorama, it was blazing hot and so much fuller than the day before. I couldn’t wear the wrap as long as the sun was out, and that was the whole point of wearing my blue top. So I finally took it off, walked out the bathroom and had one of the best afternoons of the summer. There were a few times I did feel out of place, but then I sucked it up and remembered I looked cute AF and that I was dressing for me, no one else. If anyone else has a problem with my body and how it looks, tough luck. It has taken me 25 years to love the body I’m in, I’m not letting anyone take that away from me.
