OOTD: Lazy Black Maxi

blackmaxidress03_smile

my boyfriend is up north visiting his family for a little bit and fixing his car, and so i’ve got a lot more responsibilities in the morning than i normally do when he’s around to help out. that leads to running a little bit late and feeling a bit lazy when picking out what to wear. an easy go to for mornings like that is a maxi dress. then all i have to do is throw my hair in a bun, add a headband, grab some colorful sandals and jewelry, and i’m set to go! do you have a go-to maxi dress or outfit for mornings when you’re not ready to put together your next work of outfit artistry?

Dear World. I’m Not Really An Hourglass.

FatActivismAndFatshion

there was an article published recently by definatalie on xojane entitled, “when activism gives way to advertising: how fat girl blogging ate itself.” god bless natalie for putting into words things that i’ve been feeling but have not been able to express. once again i’m entirely inspired by another lady blogger and the internet to talk about something i’ve wanted to talk about for awhile. 1 – why haven’t i been blogging as often recently? 2 – i want to talk about not being the “ideal” shape.
