Reblog if you do too. Just to prove that it is more normal than what people actually think.
I have the best stretch marks
Boobs, butt, hips, tummy, thighs… I exploded with awesome at a young age, and my body just couldn’t keep up. My stretch marks give me that little bit of wiggle room.

OOTD “Peplum fever”
I don’t know that I have ever loved a certain style of top more! I love, love, loveee it! Years ago I would have loved it because it shows off my small waist. Today? I love it because it shows off my big hips! Accentuating my best feature for the win! If you don’t own a peplum jacket, shirt, dress.. At the very least try one on. Hopefully you’ll feel as flirty and cute in it as I do :3

chemicalweather asked: do you have any recommendations for skinny jeans? I'm really muscular up and down through my legs from riding horses for so long and i even though I'm a bigger girl i really lack curves. or, i have curves in the wrong places. i need some skinny jeans that won't make me feel fat and will help me with maybe creating some curves and also stay on my ass. thanks girl! love the blog! you're beautiful!
Firstly, you are beautiful - and there is no such thing as “curves in the wrong places”. Everyones curves are exactly where they should be! What would be so awesome about being us, if we were all the same? :)
Second, I can understand where you are coming from. My legs were something I was really self conscious about when I was younger because I have really thick thighs, and undefined calf muscles, that taper drastically - I use to think they looked like a chicken drumstick. Then I found myself, stopped caring what others thought, and now I wear skinny jeans all the time - and I love my legs just as they are.
If you like skinnies, rock them! You could buy them to fit you in your thighs, even if they are bigger in your waist - and get them taken in to fit your measurements. OR, you could buy them with stretch (forever 21+ is where I get mine). Stretch helps the denim form to your shape, but the downside is that they do stretch out after wearing them a while making them less form fitting. Buying a higher rise will help them stay up - It also helps prevent a “muffin top”, and gives you a more streamline look without the fuss of undergarments like control panties, spanx or waist cinchers.
For creating shape, look into peplum tops (asos.com, citychiconline.com) or flowy tops that you could belt to create shape and curves you feel you may be lacking in different areas. I hope this helps! Thanks for the question.. Be sure to post pictures once you find the perfect pair of skinny jeans!
t-imelocked asked: Can I just stop by and say you are perfect and that you are my idol
You are the cutest! That`s sweet of you to say. I am far from perfect! I always strive to be better, and to leave room for improvement. You are a lovely individual, and I bet someone out there is looking at you thinking that you are their idol :) Thanks for the love xoxo
