Hi babes! 

 

First and foremost, I’m wishing the happiest Pride Month to all my lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer, intersex, and asexual babes reading this post! Today, I want to talk about the everyday work of being confident! 

 

Everyday is an opportunity to embrace a new part of you! I know I’ve shared this before but I’ll say it again, confidence isn’t a quality you either have or don’t have. It’s a muscle or a frame of mind that you must continuously work on developing. So every single day truly is an opportunity to embrace a part of you and work on loving that part a bit more!

In honor of summer, I’m really working on showing love to my arms. They are the largest they’ve ever been and any new part of you deserves some extra care and attention! This top from the Express Love Unites Collection gives me a chance to show them off and feel really, really good about it! In the same spirit of pride, I find myself accepting myself and celebrating the things that make me unique!

Pride month may be coming to a close, but I’ll never stop celebrating the LGBTQ+ community and Express agrees! That’s why they have partnered with GLADD and Out Magazine to launch the Love Unites collection featuring 35 gender-neutral pieces that champion unity and individuality. For every Love Unites item purchased by July 15, Express will donate 25% of the net income to GLAAD to accelerate acceptance for the LBGTQ+ community!

Three Go-To Jackets for Fall and Winter | Sponsored by StitchFix

Hey lovelies,

And helloooo November! This just might be my favorite time of the year! The spooky stuff is over and now it’s time to focus on family, food, and presents – woo! I just got back from visiting my best friend in Portland, OR and all the rain reminded me how important it is to plan for the changing seasons! The leaves were stunning, but the rain & wind chill already had me thinking about getting my winter wear together! Although I live in LA, I travel quite a bit during the winter months and need to be prepared with lots of cozy options!

If you’ve been following me for a while then you already know about my love for Stitch Fix! They are a styling service that matches you with a personal stylist who will send you incredible clothes that fit your style, body, and budget! I am so happy to be partnering with Stitch Fix to share three classic jackets that are perfect for fall and winter!

An obvious classic is the leather moto jacket! This is an absolute staple for me and I am thrilled when it finally gets chilly enough to start wearing them each year! I love this specific jacket because the sleeve detail instantly glams up the look! When you first sign up for Stitch Fix you are asked to fill out a style profile that helps the stylist understand your body type, fit preferences, and style! I asked for a bit more glam, so this jacket is right up my alley! I loved the looked of pair this jacket with this textured sweater! You could easier dress this up with a skirt and heels, but I opted to keep things casual with a pair of my favorite jeans!

The next classic jacket style is cargo! We see a lot of military inspired looks this time of year and I always enjoy incorporating this aesthetic into my outfits. Cargo jackets are as functional as they are stylish which makes them an incredible layer to wear while on an outdoor workout. It’s so easy to throw your keys, cell phone, and chapstick in a pocket and go! I decided to create a full camouflage moment with these leggings, because I know this outfit would definitely inspire me to bring my workout to the next level! And there would be no need to worry about the fit, because Stitch Fix tests each item on real women to know how the clothes will fit before they send them out!

The last classic jacket style is a newly adopted favorite of mine… the bomber! Bombers are a great option for looking effortlessly chic! On it’s own the bomber has more of an athlesuire/street feel, but you can absolutely style it to fit your personal style! I attempted to dress the bomber up for a night out by pairing it with heeled booties and a trendy bag with matching earrings! This look was probably my favorite because I instantly felt ready to go out and dance, haha!

Needless to say, Stitch Fix is a great way to update your wardrobe for the season (or for any reason really). And with so many styles, brands, and fits, it is so easy to find the perfect item for you! You can try out the service by clicking HERE and be sure to comment below to let me know what kind of items you would be looking for from this incredible service!

I hope you have the most incredible rest of your week and as always, thank you for reading!

Xoxo,

Alex
