I realize it’s been way too long since I last blogged, so I wanted my first post back to feature this super pretty nude wrap dress. This dress is actually a faux wrap, which is probably a safer option to avoid any unwanted slips — if you know what I mean.
I’ve always had a thing for neutrals and, except for the occasional bold print and fun color, I keep choosing more minimalistic pieces. The main reason I like the majority of my wardrobe to be this way is versatility. Because I take extra good care of my clothes and many items stay with me for years, I eventually tend to get bored with the heavily printed or overly trendy pieces.
While I’ve been experimenting a lot in the past few years, I lately find myself going back to basics. So I’m aiming for a more lady-like and slightly sexy look. I don’t think age should be a major factor affecting your style, but as I’m nearing thirty, I’m being drawn to a different vibe. I’ve certainly had my fun with tulle skirts and cute bows on the blog. While I’m not saying I’ll be giving them up entirely, I will be focusing on more sophisticated pieces that are still feminine. Another new obsession of mine is rose gold, and I finally found my perfect match in these mirrored sunglasses. What’s your style mood lately?

If you asked me a few years ago to put on an ensemble like this in public I probably would’ve laughed in your face. This may seem pretty ironic coming from a fashion enthusiast and blogger, but I used to be extremely bashful when it comes to wearing such attention grabbing outfits and I still struggle with this sometimes. It’s a wonderful feeling to dress up, feel good about yourself and be confident that you can pull it off, but I wasn’t always like that. I’ve struggled with my weight ever since I was really young and always felt on the edge of an eating disorder. I’ve fluctuated up and down constantly and never had a healthy relationship with food. You know, I always said if I could only lose those last few pounds, if only my stomach was flatter, if only if only.. It never really ends. I’m so critical of myself, and I know I’m not alone in this. I found a happy medium where I’m comfortable with the way I look and don’t keep striving for perfection, but it’s always in the back of my mind. It’s very true that with age comes wisdom and I’ve learned to be thankful for all I have, focus on the good things and accept myself for who I am. Always remember, we each are perfect the way that God made us and having our health is the most important thing in this life. I love creating stylized outfits for the blog and really pushing my limits by putting together a unique look; I hope you’re enjoying them as well! Xo
