Polka Dot Romper + Body Image

Recreate the look:

I didn't want to post these pictures. I remember taking them last week and it was so hot, I was sweaty, I felt disgusting and just not pretty. So many negative thoughts I had- my face looks weird, my arm looks huge, why are my legs so big, what is that pooch on my stomach. Then I just said, stop. Stop with the self hate. I don't always do it, but I do find myself slipping into this snow ball effect of a dwindling confidence. I've battled a love hate relationship with my body image for years and let me tell you, it's a battle. Be kind to yourself and love yourself. Body image is a slippery slope, stay on top of the hill. Just be happy with who you are, all of your perfectly imperfect self. I know there will be days when you don't believe it, but you. are. beautiful! 

On a lighter note...polka dots are one of my favorite prints! I love the whimsical and retro vibes and they just feel so fun. Plus they remind me of Disney World so that's a win, too <3 

Guys. I had so many things planned for the Summer Solstice and instead of swimming and tanning and going on snow-cone runs I spent all day (actually the past two and half days) on my couch fighting a terrible cold (sinus infection?). I haven't been this sick in forever and I HATE it's during this time of year. Talk about FOMO.
