Super Stripes

IMG_6052

I'm not shy about stripes. Even if they're horizontal, I just appreciate a difference in print. The stripes on this Corey dress were placed in a couple different ways. After seeing the photos, they might seem to exaggerate my stomach. That being said, I don't mind it - I'm not oblivious to the fact that I have a stomach! I felt beautiful in this dress. Corey (aka Corey Lynn Calter) is a brand that doesn't do plus, but created a capsule Continue Reading

The Confidence Bucket List

I can't imagine anything more freeing, or more terrifying.

Stop worrying about what others think.

I'm not sure how "wordless" this post is considering the image I want to share is full of words. My travel has finally died down (New York, Savannah, Montana, Nashville) and I have things to say but just can't find the words. Or get them organized. Or find time to get them down on the blog.
