We were on the way out the door this weekend when I asked my husband to “wait a second” as I quickly ran back to our closet.
I was having a very bloated and blah day, and my mission was to find a pair of jeans that didn’t make me feel and look fat.
Yeah, I went there; I became the girl who thinks jeans made her look fat. But then something else happened. Once I found a new pair of jeans I also had to change shoes, because it was starting to rain outside and flip flops wouldn’t cut it. I slipped into my pair of Chucks and was checking out my latest outfit in the mirror when my husband came in and asked what was up. Clearly my “just a second” turned into “several minutes.”
I told him—in a completely serious tone, “These shoes make me look fat.”

Like I said, I was completely and utterly serious. My adorable pink Converse shoes that I once donned during my wedding now make me look fat!
Instead of laughing at me or agreeing with me, my husband came over, enveloped me in a big hug and said nothing made me look fat, that I always look great. So while I blushed and simultaneously rolled my eyes, I changed three more times and finally settled on my original outfit, complete with flip flops.
But really, I’m not the only woman who has days when even shoes make us think we look fat, right?
