This outfit is a direct result of my having no self control, access to the Nike employee store and a love for street wear. Note: I finally found a pair of Nike plus bottoms with a higher rise and I'm obsessed. These dri fit leggings fit like a dream. Also, they make my butt look amazing- some serious lift and separate action going on in these babies. You gotta celebrate when your booty is on point and you feel comfortable af.

In the wise words of the modern day philosopher, Raffi, some days you just need to shake shake shake the sillies out. And now I'm going to eep eep eeples and baneenees and place a few important calls from on my banana phone outside from where the green grass grows all around, all around.

Let me take a quick moment to talk about @ninaberenatojewelry and her
#JewelryForEveryBody campaign. Nina is first and foremost one of the nicest humans I know. And this warmth and genuine love for others helped her realise that most jewellery does not fit every body the same. And frankly, designers were creating amazing pieces that many bodies would never be able to wear. And it sucks. But Nina vowed to make her designs different. Whenever I try on one of her pieces and it doesn't fit correctly, she always jumps up and works to make it fit- to changing chain lengths, to the extreme- forging a whole new design for a big necked lady like myself. I originally found her jewellery at a women's maker market and remain a devoted buyer to this day. Actually, I have to avoid her shop because I can't visit with out going home with a piece (or several). Honestly, Nina treats all women like they are valuable. Often times size inclusivity is reserved for clothing, but women like Nina understand it needs to be much more than that. I'm proud to call her a friend and to be part of her efforts to make all people feel special, regardless of their body type. I rarely encourage people to follow others, but Nina is special. She one of my personal inspirations for so many amazing reasons and I'm lucky to have been able to bond with her over a mutual love for power clashing and general boss lady sassiness. She's a dreamer, an inspiration and most importantly an advocate for pure self love.

April showers bring biker jacket flowers. I have this mantra. When the day is dark, show up bright. I think fuchsia pants and a floral biker jacket are pretty bright ways to make my entrance into today. This mantra applies to so much more than just my outfit. On the dark worrisome days, people need warmth, love and sunshine most. So show up bright. Be the positive one in the room. Because you never know who's light at the end of the tunnel you'll end up being. Plus, it's just feels good to be the conductor of fun on the warm fuzzies express. Note to self: buy a conductor hat to adorn with rainbow pom poms, glitter and few rhinestones for good measure.

Here's a dose of reality for you. In a world of pretty outfits and sassy remarks, some days I live plainly. Instead of getting gussied up, I get down to business. There's this weird lie we're often told that we can have it all. But every choice has consequences and every action a reaction. So today I made the choice to wake up early and get to work on something for my day job. Because one thing I've learned is that real success is rarely easily. You don't just stumble upon it. You bleed through it. And today I've forfeited getting ready, filming and exploring Portland to add a little bit more character to my journey of success. That's my choice. That's my blessing. Because I know today's sacrifice will be tomorrow's success. And let's be honest here, if you have to work on a Sunday you ought to be comfortable as hell doing it.

Today's #ootd of the day and serious slay is dedicated to @doodystyle. Why you ask? Because it's her birthday. And with out her birthday shenanigans I very well would have remained in a baggy tshirt and dirty sweatpants for the rest of the night gobbling down bad reality tv washed with a healthy dose of hotel booze. But instead I got up. I got fabulous. And I am about to embark on an adventure in a strange bar, in a strange town with only my lipgloss, tough girl perspective and expert hip shimmies to protect me. Watch out Portland, like the kids say- it's about to get turnt.

Here's your Friday reminder to just be nice to each other. We don't need to tear each other down. There is room for each of us to be successful, beautiful and loved with out having to rain on someone else's parade. Just be good to each other, yo. And if someone chooses to put you down, choose to be better. Choose to be an example. Hell, we could use a few more good people in this world.

So I have never posted anything like this before, but I feel like it's important to talk about my day job. As a woman in tech, we need to celebrate when we succeed. So that other women choose tech as a career and the ratios shift. This image is from a recent forrester report (a tech analyst firm) which ranked my little software baby a leader. All those nights with out sleep, all the long trips with crazy schedules, and all my heart and soul I've put into the project ended up with my little technology baby being ranked a leader. I am so proud of this. I'm proud of my team. Proud of what we've done. This isn't a fancy outfit, but more a badge of honor. It's a testament that hard work pays off. If you keep trying. Keep pushing. You can really do anything you put your mind to.

Here's what I've learned quite painfully over the past 2 years of blogging. Even when you try your hardest to be a role model, a good person and an example of positivity in the world- there will always be people telling you are not good enough. So you have to toughen up, you have to know your truth and you have to trust yourself. You must resist the urge to self attack or try to adapt and be everything to everyone. Because there will always be someone out there who's mad. There will always be someone out there who doesn't agree with you. There will always be someone out there willing to waste all of their time looking for your Achilles heel. It is impossible to please everyone. Instead you must stand and stand strong. It seems terrifying, and it is. But when you stand strong in your beliefs, your character and in yourself you will find more often then not you are not standing alone. Thank you to those who have stood with me. You guys rock. I don't say it enough, but I am truly blessed to have such an amazing community around me, allowing me to stand so tall and so freely as the sassafras I am.
For those who are interested in the skirt, link is in bio. Putting there so I don't have answer all the comments that are going to ask.

Today's haul is a special one because I talk about my experience using @gwynniebee. Straight up, this is a service I use and used actually before all of these thousands of Instagram likes. It also helped me learn about how sizing works in a ton of brands and gave me some freedom to experiment with items I wasn't sure about. Not everyone gets to be a fashion blogger, but everyone can learn about how different cuts and brands work on their bodies. For me Gwynnie Bee was one of those ways I learned. The best part is if it looks terrible I don't have to do anything other than drop it in a bag and throw it in the mailbox. Like for this haul, one item I ordered fit terribly. So instead of getting upset I noted the brand name so I avoided carting it or buying it again, threw it in a bag and shipped it back. Even though that one item sucked on my body, the others were such great options, it didn't matter. Like this new spring floral jacket soulmate that I am currently crushing on. There's a link in my bio with my review, links to all the things and a way for you to get a free 30 day trial if you want to give it a try. No hard sell here, just an honest story about how this brand helped educate me on plus fashion.
