We've all heard the phrase "do one thing that scares you" - which I like to embrace from time to time. But when it comes to clothing, this type of thinking can ring true too. I recently tried to rock a JUMPSUIT that I was SO nervous about wearing. It was completely out of my comfort zone and not something I would ever normally pick out for me.Read More
Hey friends! Spring is in full force (or at least... about to be) and I've been getting lots of requests for spring dresses! 'Tis the season for bridal showers, baby showers, and whatever else makes you feel like wearing a dress! Tonight I'm sharing this look from the Draper James x Eloquii collaboration! I absolutely love this collection and both of these brands, by the way. The quality, fit, and look is top notch. But if you scroll down, I'm also sharing some other spring dress faves!Read More
In November of 2017, I was tired. Tired of feeling like crap. It'd been 2 years since I had a baby, and 2 years since I had taken care of myself. I found myself in a deep depression and drowning in anxiety.Read More
Today I'm sharing with you another look from the Draper James x Eloquii collection (sizes 12-28). I am SO happy with the items I have from this collaboration you guys - the quality and fit is amazing. This might quite literally be the perfect spring dress. It fits perfectly, and the flare shape of the skirt is so flattering. It is easy to add a layer as well!Read More
Stuck in a RUT? A FUNK? A BAD MOOD? This happens to me ALL of the time. Especially since starting my own business, I find it happens more often. It can sometimes be hard to stay motivated when I'm the one in charge.
Here's what I do to snap out of it!Read More
Some people like botox, fake nails, lip injections, or blowouts every so often to make them feel good. For me? It's a tan. I'm not sure why but ever since I was in middle school I always wanted to be tan. I'll never forget in 9th grade, when self tanner had just become a "thing"...
and somehow I got my hands on some. I was in drama class and looked down at my legs (I was totally sporting my denim dress that day because I was hoping I had achieved tan legs the night before).Read More
I am so excited to be part of this exciting launch with Draper James and one of my favorite clothing brands, Eloquii. Draper James is Reese Witherspoon's brand, and I remember being a little bummed that they didn't carry my size when I popped in the Atlanta store. But now... that's all changing!Read More
Self love. It isn't easy. And it isn't something I realized I had an issue with really, until the last year or so. I just figured that this was part of life, that I'd always be held back from being truly happy because I wasn't thin enough. Or smart enough. Or coordinated enough. I just thought... it is what it is.
You see... growing up, I can remember seeing people like Cindy Crawford and praying I'd look like her someday. If not her, then maybe Mariah Carey. If not her, then hopefully I'd at least have abs like Gwen Stefani or be as thin as Britney Spears.Read More
I've been known to rock a sweater as long as the weather will allow it... And, lucky for me, Georgia weather has been on an emotional rollercoaster which is totally still allowing me to wear all the cozy things!Read More
So I've been on this journey for awhile. Like, my whole life.
And I've been blogging for a little less than a year, which has allowed me to see all sides of people on the Internet and really think about how I view myself. I've been seeing lots of mixed messages in the media about what it means to love yourself and what is considered "real" and "beautiful."Read More
...No, not talking about your digestive system. The other type of "tummy issue." The one that makes you cripplingly self conscious. The one that makes you swear off jeans and only wear leggings and shirts that are way too big for you.Read More
The power of a classic, crisp, white button front shirt is underrated. The thing that has always turned me off about them, however, is that they aren't interesting enough for me. Also, I want something comfortable I can move in. With my shape, I often have to size two sizes up to get something that fits, but then it looks too boxy.Read More
"Where are your glasses from?" I get this question a lot because I can NOT see without my glasses! So if you watch my Instagram stories, you will always see me in my glasses.
There aren't many accessories that I believe in spending money on, and glasses definitely aren't one of them.Read More
I absolutely love what a good peplum top can do for any body type! Here's a simple look I threw together with a few of my favorite pieces. First things first: Let's talk denim.Read More
How to rock white jeans and the power of a beautiful, lightweight kimono. Two things you can style endlessly, and two things you need in your closet ASAP.Read More
Sometimes I feel like this needs to be a disclaimer that pops up every time you open up Facebook or Instagram.
Like... hey, friendly reminder: You're probably not going to scroll your feed and see photos of people's kids screaming with snotty noses or an Instagram photo of your friend and her cellulite.Read More
Here is what happens when two sweet toddlers get together for a Valentine's playdate. Spoiler alert: yes, it's adorable.Read More
I have partnered with Gwynnie Bee to do a fun campaign this month, as I am sure you've seen on my Instagram. Here is this fun Valentine's day look I styled for them. I absolutely love the way this dress fits and moves when you walk!Read More
Weekend VIBES, am I right?! Let me break this down for you. First of all, I am obsessed with this style of jacket for my type of body. If you've been following me for awhile, you may remember this one from last Fall that I love. The length and the weight of this one is perfect as we transition into Spring. Easy to dress up or down as well.Read More
