My outfit I wore over the weekend to Beloved at New Pointe Community Church, an event which Susan, Elizabeth and their team spend a lot of time putting together because they believe in and love the beautiful young women of our future.
As women, we have a responsibility to our daughters and the girls in our lives to teach them to believe in themselves, be passionate, love and accept themselves as they are, as God created them (and you) in His image. Therefore, perfection! However, we can not pass this on or even teach it if we ourselves do not believe it or practice it. So stop complaining and talking down to yourself about your body. Eyes are watching and ears are listening. What comes out of your mouth will eventually come out of your daughter's/niece's/granddaughter's/friend's mouth. Harsh, but true, and yes, I am talking to myself.

Love and celebrate yourself, as you are beautiful and perfectly made!

I'm going to rave about these skinny jeans for a minute...If you have curves, carry your weight in your hips and thighs, or have junk in the trunk like me these are the skinny jeans for you. I have never had skinny jeans fit me this well! There is plenty of room for my tush, hips and thighs, and wait for it...NO GAPPING IN THE BACK! I forgot to take a picture of my tush, yes, I was going to show you how great it looks in these jeans and totally forgot. Next time, I promise.

Have a happy Wednesday!
