Summer Cover Up

Deep summer 

is when laziness

finds respectability.

Sam Keen



Not feeling too inclined to flaunt your curves in tiny outfits this summer? Long dresses always look elegant while feeling oh so comfortable to wear like pajamas. Molly England on Huffington Post shares size 14 model Ashley Graham’s sentiments on  the media’s prescribed standards for women’s bodies in her essay for Net-a-Porter’s online magazine, The Edit:

I think that you can be healthy at any size and my goal is to help and educate women on that. It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 2 or 22 as long as you’re taking care of your body, working out, and telling yourself, ‘I love you’ instead of taking in the negativity of beauty standards.

While Marilyn Monroe and Jennifer Lopez have worn their curves with confidence over the years, I share her sentiment that our young girls need to see more women on TV and in magazines who have healthy figures.

Surely, there must be more to gain engaging in topics of conversation other than weight loss. And if we do, what projects might we uncover to indulge our joy and curiosity?  How might we remember to choose to speak kindly to ourselves? How can we free our thinking to be more present for fun with the people we love?

    I think Ashley Graham is an incredibly beautiful Goddess. A little secret…don’t tell anyone. If I see a article about her, I always stop to read and look at her photos. My favorite photo this week is number two, I love legs!

    I just returned from a road trip across our amazing country. I love to drive and see things. It reminded me of when I was a kid and we would travel every year seeing new places. Along the way I remembered that my favorite Powerful Goddess was having her birthday. Happy belated birthday wishes, Sharky! 🙂
