Outfit Post: Do You

We had a fantastic weekend--took a rest from the flea market. On Saturday, we had a sweet friend's birthday party, enjoyed some fro yo as a family, did a little thrift shopping, tried a new neighborhood food joint, and bought fall plants to spruce up our yard.

And here's what I wore for most of it (come on, could I really wear these booties to the Home Depot???):

outfit details:  cardigan-old Charlotte Russe, dress-Target (thrifted), brooch-vintage, tights-Target, boots-gift from Jayme last Christmas

It's no big secret that I don't like my legs. I've always been pear shaped and carried my weight in my hips and thighs.  So originally, I wasn't on board with the colored tights trend.  But more and more, I've decided: F*CK it. I love clothes, I want to wear what I want to wear, and I'm not making apologies for my body. I'm healthy, I work hard, and I don't care what other people think. I felt like a million bucks in this outfit!

And just to add to my own body positivity, I stumbled on this great campaign last night via Tumblr: Marina Rinaldi's Women Are Back.  So many beautiful, curvaceous figures--made me feel even better about mine and all the possibilities I can dress it in, no matter what my size (+20 baby pounds. ahem.).



  1. You look great- love this look on you! Love those boots!

    1. Thank you, Lisa!! I only got to wear these boots a time or two because of winter + ice, but I plan on rocking them all fall! They're actually surprisingly comfortable too!! xo

  2. You look/looked GORGEOUS (as always!). Seriously...can I please be you?!

    1. Thank you, sweet friend! Whatever--you are SO gorgeous and I wanna be YOU! But what I really wanna do is find you the perfect Jackie ) dress...still looking...
