Proportions and how to look slimmer

I have put on weight during “lock down”. I know, most of us have. Mine is all around my thighs and my tummy. I don’t really do diets, I can’t. I can’t give up anything. I love food, I love wine, I love alcohol in general actually. I don’t much like exercise I am afraid. Only walking. I know, its going to be difficult to lose weight this way!  Having said all this, it’s not like I have put on 10 kilos, probably 2 or 3, hopefully. I haven’t the gusts to check. I wasn’t exactly skinny before but still, I am a size 44 now, so not all is lost.

Just for now, in the hope summer will take appetite away, I have to make do with the right clothes, not many though!

This is what I wore earlier today, for my “big outing to the supermarket” (sad or what?!!):

Long black wide leg trousers, no pleats: this way you could not see my chubby thighs, black of course slims down, long makes you taller (just above your ankles though) and no pleats, so you don’t add to your tummy.

White loose medium length t-shirt: White on top, where I am slimmer, makes proportions right and so makes the bottom part, look slimmer. The length also covers my tummy (and it’s loose enough not to hug it) but stops just before my hips.

Pointy flat shoes: they lengthen the legs. Sometimes flat is better than high heels.

I also made sure my eyes had suitable make-up and my face mask was pretty:

and my lovely handbag, I have just bought for the summer:

Apart from knowing it was an optical illusion (I could feel the waist of my trousers a little tight, whereas before it was rather loose), I looked quite good!
