What Moves Me – Musings on Body Positivity

IMG_0807

Revisiting this little blog of mine, coming back to this place that is so special to me has brought up so many emotions. For one, posing in front of a camera hasn’t come as easily as it once did. I’m out of practice and it feels just a tad bit uncomfortable. This is something i’m excited about, and i’m excited to learn to overcome again.

But second, it has renewed a feeling I had when I started this blog: body image discomfort is something to push through. Thick thighs are beautiful and should be celebrated. Patchy skin and pimples on faces are a part of life.

You may notice (or, hell, you may not) that I have a pimple on the side of my mouth in these photos. It comes from picking at my face and it’s not cute but you know what, pushing through the discomfort of not wanting to post photos because of it, moves me. It makes me feel empowered that i’ve hit publish regardless of that slight twinge of insecurity that I had, and pushed through.

Body positivity moves me. Helping others learn to love and accept their figures moves me. And far less seriously, skirts like this one with flow and movement help with the above – this one is good, ya’ll.

Review: Ann Taylor Colorblock Slip Dress

Dress (currently 50% off), Shoes, Jacket

Let me just jump up and down for this dress for a hot second. Seriously, i’m wearing a size 14 here and it fits me EVERYWHERE. Hallelujah! It’s the colorblock silk dress from Ann Taylor and it. is. exceptional.

It is a perfect midi length on me, has adjustable spaghetti straps and even has a built in bralette.

I just love the way it skims my curves while not being too tight, making it totally office appropriate.

I’m styling it here with tennis shoes and a jean jacket, totally perfect for a casual weekend but think it would look amazing with nude or black pumps, hair up, and a vampy lip.

As a curvy lady, nothing feels better than clothing fitting off the rack, amiright?

Part of the fun of living in a city like San Francisco is hosting friends from out of town. A few weeks back I had the pleasure of hosting my “little sister” from my college sorority! She is quite the photog (check out her website here) so we couldn’t help but snap a few pictures. I’ve been living in some variation of this outfit (bomber jacket, maxi dress & belt) all Summer in San Francisco and loved that she documented it for me!

For those wondering, this jacket is from Club Monaco and i’m wearing a size L. It has been my most-worn item this last season and I couldn’t recommend it more.

I am so pleased to finally be able to share a fun photoshoot I did with the other Poshmark bloggers for Racked San Francisco a few weeks back! We gathered in the city with the insanely talented Erica Garlieb and had the most fun styling our own individual takes on Fall Brights and trends we are loving/hating for the season. Hop on over to Racked to see the images of all of us together (our styles are so individual and so fun!) and brace yourselves for a picture heavy post below. Thanks again to Racked, Erica and Poshmark for a wonderful afternoon and feature!
