This is me...

 

So this is me today.  Not fancy or dressed up.  Just outside playing with my kids, friends and neighbors.  I do love fashion and blogging, but I'm not always dressed up.  My body isn't exactly where I want it to be yet.  It's a work in progress.  I am a work in progress.  I am just a regular woman and mom who is trying to make her way in the fashion blogging world.  You know what though?  I've found that even on the days where I haven't washed my hair and I'm in workout shorts, I can still feel beautiful.  Little things help me to feel special and help me remember that I deserve to feel that way.  Today, that little thing was this pearl ear cuff.  I love it and yes, I will wear it with a tee and shorts.  I don't care if it "goes" with my outfit or not.  It is ME.  It represents so much more, and I think that's why I have come to love fashion more now than ever.  It reminds me that I am worth it.  It's an outlet for my creativity and my personality.  I hope that it inspires others to remember that they're worth it too!!  So grab that little extra today, even if you're feeling tired or run down.  It really will help you to feel better, and after all, you deserve it!!!

Boyfriends + chandeliers

 

Let's face it.  Summer is in full swing.  It's hot.  I'm tired.  Boyfriend jeans are so comfortable yet fun so they have been on repeat lately.  Especially if I know I am staying home or will be somewhere that is air conditioned.  When I feel myself entering that mid summer slump, I try to perk myself up with extra coffee and some great chandelier earrings.  It really does help.  I feel pulled together and pretty even though I'm dragging to make it through the day.  Hope you all are enjoying your summer, but if you are struggling like I am, grab some fun earrings or jewelry to cheer yourself up!  And coffee.  Strong coffee.  Happy Tuesday! 

*My favorite places to find fun chandeliers include Banana Republic, bauble bar, or Stella and Dot...check out some of my faves below!
