Learn to Love Yourself

This Valentine's Day, I've been thinking about how important it is to love yourself.  Yes, we all have our little flaws, but loving yourself first is an essential part to being a healthy and overall happy individual, in my opinion.  On this day when we're so busy showing everyone else how much we love them, don't forget to show yourself a little love.

Girls Supporting Girls

It's finally February! We made it through one of the longest months of the year. Congrats! This week, in light of recent women's marches that went on throughout the world a couple weeks ago, I thought I would talk about how we can better support the community of women in our lives.  Whether that be the women in your workplace, an online community of women you've never met, or just your closest confidants and best of friends, we should all have each others' backs!  You might not have made it to a women's march near you, but here's how you can support women on a smaller, but still important, scale.

Back to Black

I hope you're all doing well on this dreary January morning.  Has this not been the longest month ever?  It feels like it will never end, and I don't know about you, but we've been having some not-so-lovely weather! Instead of crisp, frosty mornings, we've been having soggy grey ones. 

Because of the less than cheerful weather and this never-ending month after the holiday season, I know many of you, like me, is getting a bit bored or feeling uninspired when it comes to your wardrobe.  You've probably even resulted to wearing black everyday, which, while easy, can also be quite unexciting.  Not to fear though, I'm challenging you to reinvent the way we all wear black.  

(My friend from high school, Miranda Meyers took these amazing shots for me, and they're honestly some of my favorites to date. We had so much fun creating these photos and chatting all afternoon! I've been wanting to work with her for ages now. Head over to her blog and instagram and give her amazing work some love.)

Why I Wish People Would Stop Wishing Winter Away

(Try to say that title three times fast!) I have a bit of a bone to pick with you haha. After the end of the holiday season, all I've been hearing and seeing is people wishing away our brief winter.  I hear people say "I'm SO ready for spring!" or see stores bringing out floral crop-tops and floaty mini skirts, but I'm a winter girl at heart (I do have Elsa hair after all!).  I do not appreciate this wishing away of cool breezes, frosty mornings, and the possibility of snow!!  I think all the seasons should be given there fair dues and appreciated for each of their variations from one another.  I think living somewhere where you get to experience all the seasons is a blessing, so below are some of my reasons I think we should all slow down and appreciate this season in all it's chilly glory.

Festive Plaid Fan

I hope you're all enjoying your time off with your families and friends and eating lots of amazing festive foods.  (Comment down below what your favorite food is this time of year!)

This is an outfit I've been dying to rock, and one I deemed very appropriate for the festive season!  For some unknown reason, plaid, especially red plaid, has always reminded me of the holidays.  I'm not sure if it's the cozy feeling it makes me think of, or the red associated with Santa Claus, holly berries, and cardinals, but I love to incorporate plaid in my wardrobe at this time of year.
