Olive (I Love) Myself

nd-feb-18

Let me talk to you about self love. The best relationship we have is the one with ourselves, it’s hard to be nice to others if you’re constantly mean to yourself. When you love yourself you’re more likely to show love to others. Loving yourself can change your life in so many ways….it will help you get that confidence you needed to wear that outfit, talk to that stranger or even get that dream job. Love is unconditional, so love yourself with no boundaries or conditions. You’re body is going to change, life is going to give you ups and downs but don’t steer away from your goals of self love. You’re unique and one of a kind, you just gotta believe it 🙂 #MotivationalMonday

Stripe LOVE

sweater-strong-nd-17

Magazines and the media always tell us to wear vertical stripes because they make you look thinner. I personally don’t give a damn about looking thinner I care about looking and feeling confident. I love this sweater because it has HORIZONTAL stripes and bright colors to add to the attention. I mean this sweater represents everything us “big fellas” shouldn’t wear right?! According to all those unrealistic style tips from people that don’t get how people actually work because they are out of touch with reality. Ignore the haters and wear what makes you feel great!! And I feel great in this stripes 🙂 #StripeLove #GapLove

Somedays you just gotta put one a smile! And I’m not talking about some cheesy fake one either. We often get consumed with work and life that we forget to take a second, look around us and just smile for what we have. It’s easy to get lost in the struggle and hustle…..trust me I know. Honestly, I often get wrapped up in it myself but for some reason during this shoot at the University of South Carolina’s iconic horseshoe I felt life. It hugged me and reminded me of all the amazing things I am blessed with; health, family, an amazing wife and an awesome fashion blog. I couldn’t help but smile at watching my daughters chase each other around the horseshoe (behind the scenes) while shooting this look. I encourage all of you to take a moment out of your busy week to just appreciate what we have 🙂 Don’t forget to smile!

P.S. Happy Birthday to my oldest daughter Temperance! She turns 6 today 🙂

Turtle Neck Strong

iw-harper-5

I haven’t rocked a turtle neck since grade school! It’s so nostalgic to wear one and feel so comfortable…..next is overalls. I remember as a kid my sister and I had matching red Tommy Hilfiger turtle necks with black denim overalls. That looked so fly to me……a part of me wishes some of the styles from the 90’s would makes a strong comeback. Fashion is forever evolving and eventually overalls will be one the hottest things around again and no will be able to deny such an amazing throwback item. Be sure to shop some of my favorite turtle necks below!! Hope your 2017 is going well so far! 🙂 #TurtleNeck2017
