From within my beautiful swag bag, from the 5th Annual Two Point Oh LA’s Picnic this last weekend, emerged this sassy tee courtesy of Too Ugly For LA. First off, I love a great graphic tee, but one that straight up points a finger (the middle finger in this case) toward’s societies distorted view of beauty is the kind of meaningful graphic I’m into – plus this shirt is seriously the most comfortable thing ever.

IMG_7172Paired with stylish sunnies ala ZeroUV, also a fun find from my swag bag, this outfit made me challenge myself to be beautiful in a new way. Any other girls out there who part their hair the same exact way every single day for fear that parting it straight down the middle will look horrifically ugly? Hands up, I’m that girl! Not today – I parted my hair in the middle to channel a new look that I believe is beautiful, no matter what the mirror tries to whisper to me. Oh, and I dyed it super light this time around – actually a really great idea because I looooove it now!

IMG_7202IMG_7183Long story short, let this outfit inspire you to embrace who YOU are, not who your society says you are. YOU ARE FREAKING BEAUTIFUL! Okay, I’ve said my peace – man, there’s something empowering about writing about loving yourself on your birthday. Oh yea, that’s happening right now too.

Shameless happy birthday to me, love me!
