Sometimes I feel a bit silly being a 35 year old mom who is also a fashion blogger. It’s easy to let insecurities creep in. I’m not as young or thin as most of the other fashion bloggers.

They are moms, entrepreneurs, workout mavens, real, beautiful amazing women leading real lives. Real life is so much more beautiful and inspiring than picture perfect.

It was awesome to see so many full figured models strutting their stuff down the runway this morning. A real turning point and step in the right direction.
