I am all about an all glam outfit because I love it. This outfit of course went for the most classic colors black and white. You can never go wrong with black and white.

One piece you should have in your closet for that little bit of glam is that nude heel that all bloggers and fashion lovers seem to have and to rock because well they are fabulous. I took a long time to find my perfect nude heels and though I thought about investing in my nude heels but I went for a great brand Steve Madden that didn’t break the bank.
The nude heels help a look look more chic. It allows my legs to look longer which I am short so I always need to look taller and longer. Maybe even skinnier.

I am normally not someone who goes for this kind of dress because I am on the larger size which means I will always think about looking bigger or just enhancing my shape. I am all about enhancing whatever shape you have been blessed with but I don’t want to add to the parts that I particularly don’t like. This post kinda makes me think about the group my roommate has over every Thursday but particularly what they talked about tonight. “Natural”. It came out to mean something different for each young women in the group but there was something that always stood out to me. To see themselves as they were created. To see themselves as they are and to accept that person. It is okay to want to change something for a healthy reason but at the end of the day you still need to like who you were before the change. So I find ways to wear what I want to wear while still loving my body.

So let’s all accept our body how it is. Love our body and how we look. And enjoy this Friday!!

  • You look stunning! such a classy look. Your hair is on point! Loving our bodies is so hard, yet so important. I’ve been moving and haven’t had/made time to work out, and have my wedding dress fitting in a month, so I’m not too happy about, but have to just keep on loving my body.
