Just a quick roundup blog linking some of my recent Instagram outfit posts! I get questions all the time about what I am wearing, and where I find some of my pieces. I am so guilty of sharing selfies and my daily outfit details on my Instagram, more than my Facebook. With these types of posts, you can shop my looks all in one place. 🙂
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned in passing (I must have blacked out or something) to my husband that I would like to jogging with him sometime(he is one of those annoying people that loves running…I know, gross). Well now he has been reminding every freaking day that I said that, EVERY DAY. So my attempts at dodging him and my excuses for not doing couples workouts have finally run out. So…I need tips, are you a jogger? I am a total girl about sports and exercise, I am a power walking, hiking, horseback riding, dancing in my living room girl. Are there any tricks that I can try to help ease into this whole “Jogging” thing.
Just a heads up, I don’t want to lose my curvy shape or be smaller than my current size 14. I love myself, and I have come way to far in my self acceptance journey to even think about losing my curvy shape. In an effort to love my body, I need to move it more.
God, its been awhile. I have been so busy with life lately I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks. I ordered this Maxi dress from ASOS a month ago, and patiently waited for the weather to break so I could finally shoot this folk flower child dress. I have been searching for a long sleeve maxi dress for awhile and this particular one just spoke to me. I love the whimsical nature of it, and the fun pattern. When ordering for UK based brands I always order one size up, and for this dress I regretted it, I still made it work on Easter with a belt, but for the shoot I wanted to wear it free and loose.
When we shot this look, it was raining, and muddy, and the cows were intrigued but somewhat pissed to have me traipsing around in their pasture. The baby ones wouldn’t let me cuddle them, and the horse was a little to friendly(lol). But I wanted to shoot this beautiful flowing dress in place you don’t usually wear beautiful flowing dresses. I wanted to get this white dress dirty, if it hadn’t been 30 degrees I would have been barefoot, toes in the mud and dress dragging the ground. This dress inspired me to want to connect with the earth, in a way that a flower child would.
My blog will be one year old in July, and I as I have settled into my job as someone that seeks to inspire others I have found myself trying to look like the other girls that have a broader following. This shoot was meant to shake me loose from that mindset. I don’t want to be like the other girls, I want to be me. The girl that is ok with muddy toes, and a dirty dress. I am challenging myself and all of you to do something that connects you with you. Its so easy to become a follower, do something that makes you “You”.
2016 is the year that I get the things that I want, I have this sense that I need to connect with me. I challenge you to connect with you.
