Canadian Tuxedo Part Deux!

As a blogger, I always aim to look my best in the photos/content I create for others or for my own work. I think we can all admit to that, it’s only natural to want to look our best in photos.
But I’m tiiiiiiiiiired, okay? Why do I even do this? I can create quality work without spending an hour on my hair and caking my face far beyond what my “normal” is.. so why do I??


But I was supposed to get photos done today for this Candian Tuxedo post (I’m obsessed) and I had a million other things to do and just said, “y’know what – I’m NOT DOING ITTTT.”

All I wore was foundation, and my hair was still damp from my shower. But it’s fine. I honestly couldn’t care less -this is about how I’m obsessed with mixing jean materials with other jean materials, not what my hair looks like. Which, if I may say, looks pretty darn good for having just clipped it up still wet. And IT WAS FUN. I had fun with this and I think they look just as good as any other thing I’ve posted here.

So, lesson of the day: Don’t ever feel the need to sacrifice your comfort or sanity for your appearance. Always shower, just don’t force yourself into skinny jeans if you’re just not feeling it.

My jeans are Old Navy ROCKSTARS – aka the only jeans this broke-ass girl will wear. They have the best stretchies, variety, and they’re affordable. Find your pair HERE!
My shoes were $5 from Rue21. I’m not a huge Rue21 fan butttt I can’t pass up some of their sales sometimes, I swear. They had all their shoes on sale for $5 and I got 7 pairs. SEVEN. (You can find their sale pageeeee HERE!)
This bag was a Target clearance purchase (I think I paid $22) Check it out HERE.
And this shirt used to be a dress that got on sale for $8 (From Old Navy) and cut in half.

After typing this out, I realize how much of a “broke ass girl” I really am. I don’t know if I’m proud or embarrassed???

    1. me too! And it sucks because I don’t LOVE the whole fast fashion thing, but damn. I just cannot spend that much on things!!

  1. Those jeans look so stretchy and comfy, exactly what I need! Heading to their site now to grab me a pair 🙂

  2. Girl, I am right there with you! Sometimes you have to do things just to keep your sanity. For me, I love doing a makeup-free face and comfy shorts. It’s my favorite outfit for when I have a day of food shoots to do. And I am exactly the same – I do not spend tons on clothes. So I am all about the old navy! Thanks for keeping it real!

  • Being chronically ill doesn’t make you a “burden”.
You’re not some unfortunate thing that happened. You’re not “less than”, an “inconvenience”, or “annoying”. You’re not your illness. 
What you ARE, is:
* Every bit as much a person as anyone else.
* A complete and total BADASS for handling the cards you’ve been dealt ON TOP of doing life just like everyone else.
* Deserving of a person that’s understanding, supportive, and doesn’t make you feel GUILTY for things that are beyond your control. 
And I hate that this is something I have to constantly remind myself of.

  • I am feeling SO good today! 👏🏼 I’ve been thinking a lot lately about why I feel the way I do at this point in my life and I’m learning. I’ve said it a million times & I’ll say it again for good measure: the relationship you have with yourself is so. important. Nourish it, feed it, watch it blossom. And youll surprise yourself when the time comes that the universe tests your strength. #reallifeis #yearofyou #selflovesoldier
  • Last night I fought consciousness HARDDDD- but still managed to fall asleep before 3am. 🎉 and I got up early, grabbed coffee with a friend, and came home to have a productive afternoon of catching up on work. I might pop on my stories for a little bit to word vomit some more but we’ll see. 🙄 #happythursday #reallifeis
  • Over it. 
Where’s my sunshine.
I want to sunbathe like a lizard.
  • It’s healthy resolution season and I’m keeping my pearly whites clean with the @waterpik toothbrush from my @babbleboxxofficial wishlist from last month! It’s a water flosser and triple sonic toothbrush all in one neat little counter topper. #wishlistbbxx #ad #waterpik
  • can’t feel my knees
  • so many holiday things happening and literally aaaalll I can think about is the ocean.
  • I’m really struggling with the holiday spirit this year. Maybe because I’m growing up, maybe because life is weird right now. Who really even knows. I’m just super stoked I’m home with my favorite peoples. ✨🌲
