Today is my birthday. And, as I think most people do, I spent it reflecting on the past year. Last year was a challenging one, with highs and lows. I lost people I loved very much. I grew my business and was able to achieve a lot of goals I had for myself. I was able to travel a lot more and learned so much.
Over the years, as my style has grown and changed, one thing has remained constant: the abundance of destroyed denim (or ripped jeans for those less fashion-verbiage inclined). Besides oozing with attitude, the are so incredibly versatile. No matter what your taste or style, there will be some version of the plus size ripped jeans world that will work for you.
I love this look if you have a late summer/early fall wedding – the grey plus size trench coat contrasts with the blush pink of the dress while still keeping the look soft. I am straight up obsessed with this lace trench and can see myself wearing it a TON over the next few months.
I’m so overjoyed to share some news with you all: for the next three months, I am working with the fabulous lingerie brand, Vanity Fair! When they reached out to me and shared their new campaign called “Women Who Do”, I knew I had to be a part of what they were trying to create. I can’t wait to share all of the details of our partnership with you — but first, let me tell you the story of my whirlwind trip to New York in July when I met with the team (and the fabulous other influencers) who are a part of thing awesome collaboration.
When you work hard for your money and you finally treat yourself to something fabulous, you want to make sure you can wear it in as many ways as possible. I’m such a big believer in finding at least 3 ways to wear every single item I bring in to my closet – so I teamed up with Gwynnie Bee to show you 2 of the 3 ways to wear these items! I hope this inspires you!
I know this title is a bit weird, but bear with me.
I think a lot of us misunderstand what sexy things is for. There’s this common thought that wearing sexy things is somehow for someone else.
Let me correct that: sexy things are for YOU. They are for YOU to feel powerful. For YOU to feel beautiful. For YOU to feel feminine, soft, beautiful, womanly. Not for anyone else.
There’s this place in Malibu, on the coast.
There, wildflowers dance when the breeze runs through them. The wildflower patch is at the top of the cliff and they almost seem to look down at the ocean below it, their dance reminiscent of a cheer every time the water crashes against the rocks. As you walk down the path, the tall grass and tiny flowers welcome you, in shades of yellow and red and blue. It’s so romantic and idyllic. The air is alive with the fragrance of the cool ocean and laughter from below. I brought the memories home with me and tried to re-create the magic at home.
If you’ve been following my YouTube channel this week (you are subscribed, right?) you know I’ve recently spent some time in the Caribbean with one of my dearest friends, Gavyn from The Curvy Cutie. To say that Nassau and the Bahamas is a dream come true is an understatement.
