Winter Plaids

Hi Friends! Todaaaaay on W&L I have a new piece from ShopPinkBlush. And by “new” I mean, I’ve been holding on to it since before Christmas because I’m the worst blogger ever, and apparently finding time to shoot is just impossible with my schedule so full of doing NOTHING.

Anyways – I was stoked to grab this because I think the length is perfect, I love the plaid, the colors, and how basic an item it is. I like that I can dress it up or down, and I think the waist tie makes it super figure-flattering! Another thing I LOVED about this dress was that the sleeves are really wide so even though it’s more flannel-y, it’s not uncomfortable around my shoulders and arms – a typical flannel issue for this girl.

One thing I DIDN’T love about this dress, is that my boobs are too big for it. LOL. Which I guess is to no fault of the dress, but I DID order a large and it was still a tight squeeze around my chest. I found it more flattering to wear a less padded bra, and to unbutton the top few buttons so I wasn’t so confined.

Another way I’d style this would be with opaque black tights, chunky velvet wedges, and a leather jacket. But I couldn’t find my shoes, so I went with a lighter aesthetic pairing it with my nude pointy flats, a brown hat, and a grey sweater.

I know it’s a bit chilly outside to be wearing a dress with no leggings or tights, but with the decent weather we’ve been having, I figured a dress would be perfect. Until I realized it was a whopping 18 degrees with the windchill. Lucky for me, though, my legs were the only ones feeling the chill. The rest of me was pretty protected under the material!

You can find this dress HERE & be sure to check out their new items! There are tons of cute things I’ve got my eye on for the Spring & I am SO excited about the return of some warmer weather.

HAPPY SHOPPING, FRIENDS.

xo, K

  • Quote of the day: “Be alone. Eat alone. Take yourself on dates. Sleep alone. In the midst of this, you will learn about yourself. You will grow. You will figure out what inspires you. You will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you meet the person that makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you will be sure of yourself.”

  • Today I’m grateful for the things about me that I always considered to be my “bad” qualities. 
I think “bad” qualities are something we all possess, but I also think they’re useful in the sense that they do a job to weed the people out of our lives that aren’t beneficial to our end game- whatever that may be. 
So I’m listing my “bad” qualities this morning and I’m going to repurpose them. What good have they brought me? 
Some of the good I’ve come up with include: clarity, new surroundings, a chance to do what i need for myself, a new appreciation for life, love for myself that I didn’t realize I had, and so many more. 
If you’re feeling especially down about yourself, I challenge you to make a list of the things you don’t love and repurpose them. Think about what kind of good came out of your bad qualities and embrace that. 
I fully believe we are who we are for a reason and we should probably stop trying to be what we think people want us to be, and we should just.. be. Good, bad, and everything in between. You’ll be surprised who and what you attract.

i had 2 job interviews today & I’m going to reward myself with fried pickles. 🍽
  • Somethin about being sweet and wearing a crown. idk. I’m an asshole.
  • Life can get confusing. 
Intentions can get lost. 
Goals can change. 
It’s just what happens. But I’m going to try my damndest to channel the inner freebird inside me and learn to roll with these changes instead of trying to control them. 
We’re not in control of what happens. We’re only in control of our reactions and the choices we make.
