Outfit of the Day: Valfre Dress

Valfré always has the cutest clothes. From my experience, sadly, they can run a bit small, so it can be difficult for me to find pieces that fit (I’m somewhere between a true medium and large).

Miraculously, this dress was on super sale and I was able to snag one in my size before they sold out *sobs* The dress is made of a stretchy material (good for busty girls like myself), although I will say it is VERY short, so I decided to pair with some tights just in case 😉

Outfit of the Day: HKM Pants

One of my goals for the blog is to do more editorial shoots as opposed to standard outfit photos. What I love most about editorials is that I can be a little more creative in my approach, and let’s be honest, standard outfit posts can get really boring.

Outfit of the Day: Atlanta Adventures with Lindsay Thomaston, Part 2

I’m back with part two of my outfit photo session with Lindsay Thomaston. I had an absolute blast hanging out with her in Atlanta (be sure to go to Java Cats next time you’re in the city, that place is magical!), it was so wonderful to meet a like-minded fashion blogger who is as ultra feminist and authentic as I am. It’s back to work again, so I’ll be keeping this post short and sweet.

Outfit of the Day: Sassy Sweatshirt by Valfré + Magazine Launch!

 I’m back with another shoot from Pale Girl Photography! I absolutely ADORE shooting with Taylor, she perfectly understands my blog aesthetic and really knows how to capture that film-like appearance with digital equipment. It’s hard to believe we’ve only known each other a few months, I truly feel like we were destined to cross paths both as colleagues and as friends.

Outfit of the Day: Cattoo Debut by Pale Girl Photography

I had the absolute privilege to shoot with Taylor of Pale Girl Photography last week for an outfit post, and she captured some excellent shots, especially of my tattoo.  I’ve been a huge fan of her work since I stumbled across her Instagram page a few months ago, and we had the chance to grab coffee a few times and decided to finally join forces on a shoot. Maybe I’ve just been getting super lucky, but the people I’ve collaborated with recently have been a joy to work with, and this shoot was no exception.

Outfit of the Day: Koulture Collective Jumpsuit at Brown’s Court Bakery

 So it’s come to my attention that ass is, like, all the rage these days.  Whether it’s because of that iconic Kim Kardashian Paper Magazine cover or simply because more people are proudly showing off their bodies, I’m pretty glad that it happened, and this amazing Koulture Collective jumpsuit made of stretch denim really hugs my curves (yes, all of them) in the best possible way.  I’d like to give a shoutout to Stephanie Stein Photography for making my butt look as luxurious as ever, even if it does mean creepers are coming out of the woodwork on Facebook.

 

Since I first started experiencing symptoms of depression a few years back, my body has been through several dramatic transformations.

 

At my worst bouts, I was using food as a tool to cope with my feelings of worthlessness, emptiness, sadness, lethargy, and suicide. I went from a size 2 to a size 8 and gained 40 pounds, and for a long time I felt like my dramatic shift in weight was an inside joke among my peers.  Fast forward to years later as I’m experiencing a period of peak anxiety, and the 40 pounds I gained falls off at a rapid pace–only, my body still wasn’t what it was before I put on the weight.  Even worse, people were complimenting me on losing weight in such an unhealthy and mentally exhausting way, I felt horrible about myself and my body, and it’s part of what kept me from blogging for close to a year (the other part being a sheer lack of funds–isn’t it great being a millennial?)

 

 

Now that I’m taking an antidepressant, seeing a therapist regularly, and striving to make better choices for both my physical and mental health, I’m starting to see my body differently.  Instead of seeing a bloated gut (FYI: I have endometriosis and no amount of exercise will make that go away), thick thighs, and an uneven reddened skin tone speckled with acne, I’m instead starting to see a healthy, enlightened young woman who feels confident in her patchy Irish skin and is proud of her juicy, round bottom while making great strides in various aspects of her life, having come a long, LONG way from where she was a year ago.

 

 

Every day, women are told they aren’t beautiful enough, they aren’t smart enough, they aren’t thin enough, they aren’t cool enough–and quite frankly, I don’t want to add to that conversation. I want to support my fellow women in whatever ways possible; if me flaunting a booty-hugging bodysuit empowers my readers in some way and makes them feel less self-conscious about the bod they’re rocking, then HELL YEAH! I’m all for it.  Like RuPaul says, “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else? (CAN I GET AN AMEN??!!)”

Outfit of the Day: In Bloom at Hyam’s Garden Center

Normally I would drone on and on about where I gathered inspiration for this outfit and provide some witty anecdote to show you all that I’m personable and really quite charming, even through a computer screen. However, this photo set by Stephanie Stein is so exquisite that I would rather the pictures speak for themselves, so I’ll keep my chatter short and sweet.
