How to live life as your most authentic self

I am who I am and I always will be, unapologetically. You just can’t change or break my spirit and what makes it feel touched by what I like to call “magic”. I most recently was inspired to start this blog by being made fun of, to my face, for being – well, me. Without getting into much detail, I’ll tell you that I will never stop taking pictures and posting them because that is something that makes me happy. I’m not going to apologize for that.

I’ve never been the type to lose control of myself, feel comfortable in a crowded bar, get drunk until I’m sick, or experiment with an array of drugs. For some people that may make me seem boring. I’m ok with that. I mean, I can tell you I was almost always the girl asleep on a couch with a blanket wrapped around her at any of my friends’ high school parties. They mostly accepted it for what it was and I appreciated them for it.

I enjoy life in my own ways. I can get butterflies in my stomach over the smell of the ocean, a good meal, an incredible song and most importantly, deep conversations and meaningful friendships. If you don’t truly know me and you for some reason think I am not “your cup of tea”, well that’s ok. Openly telling someone your negative opinion on who they are, well that’s different. It’s cruel.

To the person who recently told me maybe I should “change”. I’m sorry you feel that way but I am happy sharing my interest, going to bed at a decent time, being cozy & knowing that I make people important to me feel loved. Maybe you should “change” a bit. Just a suggestion.

To my beautiful, amazing, talented, kind friends and family. I love you so much.

As Cat Steven’s once said, “Oh baby, baby it’s a wild world”… SO BE KINDER, be better. Compliment that girls outfit, hug your loved one’s more, help elders with their groceries for god sakes. AND STOP APOLOGIZING FOR THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOU, YOU.

Here’s a recent spring outfit I put together. Something about the comfort of jumpsuits rock my world, except for when I’m sitting on the toilet topless.

Here’s my adorable frustrating angel bulldog baby interrupting my life as always. She bolts at me so powerfully sometimes she could knock me over, but I don’t even care. I love her so much.

My hat is from J. Crew. Funny story, I bought it in NYC because I was too lazy to wash my hair that day. My perfect friend Collin works for the company and was able to discount it for me. This hat will always be my favorite because it fits my peanut head perfectly.

Shoes are from old navy & cardigan Forever 21 (typical).

This jumpsuit is from my mom’s closet, which I believe she got from Marshalls. You should see how heated it can get when the two of us steal clothes from one another, it’s kind of hilarious.

The suede gray choker is from amazon. Random I know.
