Sexy Things are for 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.

I love mixing items that don’t traditionally go together. This skirt and this top, at first glance, aren’t items you would pair. The plus size black skirt is drapey and romantic (and decidedly evening) and this top is floaty and huge and oversized, with a stripe that screams “day on a yacht”.

Black is a glorious safety blanket for me. It minimizes things I don’t want seen and maximizes everything else (not to mention how bomb they look with a tan) – but white? White just seems like a walk on the wild side… for lots of reasons. First, because you can’t hide in white – everything is visible – everything you WANT to be visible and even things you don’t. Secondly, if you’re even the tiniest bit clumsy (like me) you spend the entire time counting down the hours until your Starbucks ends up on your dress. But, I had to face my fears.

Happy March, everyone!
I love the first day of a new month – it makes me feel like we have a clean slate and a fresh start to make this month better than the last. It also means that we’re on the precipice of wedding season! Just like last year, I’ll be bringing you a wedding week (with a twist this time) – but for now, I’m sharing a look that is totally wedding guest appropriate.
