Blazin’ Hot

“I just really strongly promote pushing against this culture of perfection.”
Tracee Ellis Ross in The New York Times

When I finally got the MacBook Air in December, one of the first things I checked out was how well I could edit my photos for the blog. If there’s something I’ve always been self conscious about it’s my dark circles. The moment I realized I could edit them out it became a regular thing and having never used editing apps for it, I even started feeling the need to slightly edit a few regular pictures for Instagram. So I decided I won’t be editing them out of anything anymore. They’re part of my face, always have been and I think I get them from my granny, so although I do occasionally wear makeup that’ll be it. We just have to learn to love ourselves a little more everyday so this is just another reminder that you’re enough as I remind myself as well.

Ok onto the look…

I’m not exactly sure what I was going for when putting this together but here’s a look that gave me brunch meeting to day party vibes all in one. Close up the blazer and add heels if you’d like, to give you brunch; open up the blazer or take it off and you’re ready for a day party. Mixing structured, sporty and feminine touches is definitely one of my favorites because they all just happen to be the styles that make me feel the greatest. Anything that makes me feel great about myself on that day is what I choose to wear. Prime example? These pictures were actually taken last month before I went to go do my taxes: my taxes guy is fabulous and he loved it so that’s really all the validation I needed.
