HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY everyone! I hope you all are relaxing on your day off and for those of you still working I hope you have a great time when you get off. For those who don’t know July 4th is a big holiday in the great ole’ US of A. Tons of people around the country barbecue their favorite meats, go on vacation to some beach or simply spend time with their family. Whatever they decide to do it’s all in the great fun so celebrating this beautiful country of ours. Yes, we have quite a few issues right now, but on days like this you see people from all over hanging out with one another in love. Red, white and blue is what I’m proud to represent. I hope you all are digging my July 4th style today….and the pretty awesome wall to match the theme. Happy 4th y’all. Be safe and stay beautiful 🙂
Fashion to me is nothing but a bunch of senseless trends that come and go with the voices of “fashion” society. Style on the other hand is something tangible, it defines who we are as people. Our style of dress, style of cooking, style of talking and more. Style is forever, I have always lived by the motto “clothes have sizes but style does not”. Meaning anyone at any age and size can have style! Own your style, be confident in who you are and what you represent in this world. There is clothing out there for everyone, what we do with it and how we wear it…..is style. I like for my clothing to fit a certain way to flatter my body type. I have short arms and legs (29 inch inseam) so I often have to get a 30 inch inseam and get them altered to fit my style. That’s okay, unfortunately we don’t live in an era anymore where clothing was made for our bodies. It’s more of a “fast fashion” type of industry, still don’t let that stop you from looking your best. Wear what makes you feel comfortable, that’s you and that’s style! #StyleHasNoSize 🙂
Hello all! I have teamed up with Carmex to bring you all some personal knowledge on expanding your comfort zone. Being a body positivity activist I often have to step out of my comfort zone to help spread the message of self love. We live in a world where people will encourage you to “play it safe” and not take risks. I’m here to tell you to do the opposite. Expand your comfort zone whether it be wearing that bathing suit you always wanted to wear or going after that dream job you’ve always wanted. It can even be as simple as trying a new food or a new color for your clothing. Carmex has stepped outside of their comfort zone to bring us the Carmex Comfort Care lip balm, it comes in an array of flavors and has my lips feeling silky smooth. Whatever you do to expand your comfort zone just keep being positive while living this wonderful life. Be you and be confident!
Love, Laugh and Live freely 🙂

Wearing denim on denim can be hard for some guys to pull off but I have a little secret. The secret to pulling this off is to wear two different denims, here I have on a rugged medium/light wash jean jacket and grey denim jeans. What this does is break up the denim into two separate pieces. We have all heard of the term Canadian tuxedo but truth is you can look stylish in one. Also keep in mind when you are sporting denim on denim always choose a solid colored shirt! A solid colored shirt helps break up the denims as well, the shoes can go anyway from dressy to casual. That all depends on what you’re feeling at the moment. For me, I decided to go with my new Zebra Yeezy 350 V2’s, I was so happy to win these in a giveaway. Some of us get lucky with the Yeezy and some don’t. I personally can attest to how difficult it is to get a pair of these gems but when you get them it feels awesome! Don’t be afraid to rock a Canadian tuxedo……just keep in mind the advice I mentioned above and you will be A OKAY!! 🙂
