Apartment Accessories

Bubble LampCake StandBlue Lamp/ Zig Zag Pillow/ KitchenAid Mixer/ Vase/ Candle/ Sign

I just moved into my first solo apartment and could not be more excited to decorate. I’m leaning towards a grey and white theme for the basic items and colorful accents in the accessories.

Where do you shop for home decor items?

Dinner Night Out: Shades of Red

Skirt + Shoes + Necklace: J.Crew, Top: from Abroad, Bracelet: Odette

I wore this outfit out to dinner with a few girlfriends this past weekend. I scored this wine colored pencil skirt at J.Crew for about $21 on sale and absolutely love it. To dress it up for dinner I paired it with this gorgeous silk peplum top I purchased while studying abroad in Brussels. To date it is one of my favorite (though most high-maintenance) pieces.

Thank you for reading!

Feel More Better Campaign

One of the goals of thepearshape is to promote body/figure acceptance. The Feel More Better campaign gets at the heart of body acceptance and is a cause I support wholeheartedly.

The Feel More Better campaign that I posted about briefly a few weeks back is dedicated to making the world an easier place for women and girls to feel better about themselves. They educate the public about photoshopping in public images and about the negative effects it can have on young women and girls. Often photographs we see in magazines and newspapers aren’t accurate depictions of the women/men in them. Models and celebrities are photoshopped down to an “ideal” and then mass distributed to the public.

To support the campaign I ordered one of their signature t-shirts and styled it for a Sunday afternoon of errands and lunch with family. Needless to say, I got a lot of questions an comments on this shirt and was so happy to give more details about the cause.

In the spirit of not being afraid to show our true selves, here is an outtake from this photoshoot that shows me in all my glory. Glamorous, huh? I thought you’d think so.
