#nopantsJanuary

If you follow me over on my personal Insta account, you may or may not have noticed a lack of clothing for what I’ve deemed #nopantsjanuary. After seeing that my most liked posts of 2016 were generally without clothes, I figured it would be a fun and cheeky way to kick off 2017. Since I’m comfortable sharing it, and since it would generate higher traffic and more interactions, I figured ‘Why not?’

Now, I love fashion. I love creating outfits, and I love playing around with different combinations, even if it’s something as simple as jeans, a tshirt, and a snapback. But I also love being naked, or at least close to it. I swear I was made to live in warmer weather for this very reason. What I didn’t really expect from sharing these photos though, is that it would be so much more for me than just a fun theme for the month.

The biggest result from this month so far has been motivation. As most of you know, I committed myself to living a healthier and more fit lifestyle back in September when my boyfriend and I signed up for gym memberships. Though my schedule is generally all over the place, I’m super proud to say that I’ve not let a week pass where I’ve gone less than twice a week (usually going at least 3-4 days a week). I hit a bit of a lull this winter but as I started taking more photos this month with less clothing, I began to see some of the progress I’ve made so far which has been incredibly motivating to keep at it. Perhaps it sounds silly to you, but it’s helped me find a new sense of body love. Loving where I’m at, loving how I’ve grown, and excited to better myself and continue growing in the future.

To celebrate #nopantsjanuary with my tall sisters, I decided to style this adorable lingerie set with my favourite TallGirls UK satin bomber! I get compliments on this jacket every single time I wear it. There’s nothing like a great outfit to leave a girl feeling incredible, but great lingerie brings a whole new level of sass and confidence.

Also, I’m curious to know if any of you enjoy lingerie as much as I do, and if you’re loving the body love type posts. I’m considering shooting more lingerie more often for the blog as an “Under the clothes” type entry, because sometimes what’s going on under the outfit is just as important as the outfit itself. What do you think?

Oh hey 2017!

I don’t know about anyone else, but once winter hits here in Canada, I feel like I enter complete hibernation mode. Planning anything other than my regular work schedule, holiday dinners, and a few gym visits throughout the week starts to feel like a daunting task. So as the temperatures began to dip, so has my creativity and overall motivation.

It also doesn’t help that I turn into a bit of a winter grinch. I am NOT a fan of the cold, however pretty the first snowfall is, and seeing as how I generally need to use the outdoors to shoot looks for the blog, I tend to avoid planning shoots in cold weather, and it’s left me pretty dry on material for the last month or so. I’M SORRY!! lol.. no but really, week after week I’ve been feeling pretty lame about letting another week go by with no new content.

That being said, I HAVE been doing some shopping here and there and have a few things lined up to share. First of which is my Black Friday purchase from Missguided! I knowww this was ages ago, so some of the deals are irrelevant, but the style is not.  For those of you who don’t know, Missguided has a tall deparment! I only found this out a few months ago and decided to take advantage of the sale for my first purchase. I only checked out with 3 items because, being a new tall retailer to me, I wanted to make sure it would fit!

My favourite item in this mini haul is what I styled this for this week’s post. These high waisted extreme wide leg pants are everything. The length is perfect for any tall girl who might want to rock them paired with a heel, but the drawstring waist also gives the option to secure higher on the waist when wearing a flat. The ribbing and the material give the pant a beautiful finish and they feel just as comfortable as they look. A solid win in my books, and closet!

 

The second item I chose was actually for a Christmas gift for my sister. Standing at 6′ tall I know she generally struggles with sleeve and pant lengths, so I opted for a super rad crushed velvet bomber jacket. The arms fit her beautifully!

The third item I chose, was a pair of pink crushed velvet loafers. They are absolutely adorable, and though I ordered a size 9, received a size 6 (when the packing slip said size 7). I’ve yet to exchange them but have my fingers crossed that the process will be easy and painless! (Though they carry tall clothing, their shoe selection only goes up to a size 10)
