Tweed

When I was younger I was obsessed with tweed. I wanted a tweed blazer, tweed pants, tweed skirt, everything tweed. I know, I was a freak haha! I would reading Vogue and would try anything with fashion, I was figuring it out I guess. When I was 11 I started wearing thin belts around my waist, I'm telling you I had a strange fashion sense for a child. Explains so much right?!
I was at Lane Bryant and I found this tweed longline vest and I HAD to have it. My childhood fashion dreams were fulfilled! It was also on super sale, huge score!

Crew Love

    Oprah Winfrey has said, "Surround yourself with only people what are going to lift you higher" . I would be nothing without the amazing, talented, passionate people I call friends and family. It's very important to keep the right people around you. There are a lot of people who will not be happy for your success or not want you to live the life you dream of. I always pay attention to who claps for me and who is there for me when I hit a roadblock. This also goes for ourselves. If I have a moment of insecurity or jealous, I always step back at look at myself. Why am I feeling this way? It's always something going on with myself and nothing about the person I'm having feeling towards. To have amazing, supportive people around us we need to be that for others. 

    I love changing the look of a dress up by putting a shirt under. I usually like wearing collar shirts but I loved the look of this turtleneck with the low, tie up dress. I've been searching for thigh high socks that will fit my thighs, where do you all find them? I bought some from Torrid and they didn't go over me knees haha. Help!! ++
