MY STYLE: BATTER UP!

In my last post I talked about the importance of taking care of yourself and not losing sight of things that bring you joy. And that’s exactly what my shoot with Lady Luck Pinups was all about: a moment to focus on myself, feel beautiful, sassy, and have an absolutely amazing afternoon with an equally amazing person.

I first stumbled upon Lady Luck Pinups via a mutual friend on Instagram, and after months of liking one another’s pictures, we finally got the chance to meet at the Curvy Expo earlier this year. Meeting Jennifer was like running into a long lost friend – there were hugs and smiles and I felt instantly comfortable around her. And the photo shoot was no different! As soon as I walked through the studio door, Deanna, the makeup and hair stylist, made me feel like the babeliest babe around. And that feeling continued as I got behind the lens and Jennifer gave me a crash course on how to pose like a pinup. I knew, without a doubt, that this team had my back and was there to make my experience the best it could be, and they did just that…and more!

And can we talk about this adorable Rockford Peaches dress I found online? I have wanted one of these dresses for ages, but never took the plunge (my obsession with this movie runs deep, if you couldn’t tell by my blog handle). In keeping with the theme of doing what brings me joy, I bought this baby as soon as I booked my photo shoot and excitedly messaged Jennifer to let her know I wanted to do an A League Of Their Own inspired shoot. She was totally on board and made my idea come to life! She even drove to multiple grocery stores to find the perfectly round peaches, just for me. How could you not love this woman?! I can’t wait to get back behind her lens again soon!

SEPTEMBER: A LOOK BACK

Another month has come to an end, but with much excitement. Why, you ask? IT’S OFFICIALLY FALL! This is by far my favourite time of the year. As much as I enjoyed the summer, I’m ready for the cooler weather and all the wonderful things it brings – the leaves changing colours, fall fairs, and Halloween.

This month brought with it the return of my favourite Starbucks drink, the Pumpkin Spice Latte, some much needed time for some apartment décor projects, and one last summer inspired style shoot. Here’s to spooky October and another memorable month for all of you lovely Peaches, too!

MY STYLE: SUMMER SKIRTS PT. 2

With the official arrival of fall less than a week away, it’s now or never for one of my last summer style post! Although the days have already started to cool down, and I may have already indulged in a Pumpkin Spice Latte (or two), I am still enjoying some of my summer pieces – one of them being this fabulous skirt from Lane Bryant.You may remember another fun skirt that I picked up from Lane Bryant in the first part of my Summer Skirts posts. I grabbed this colourful piece at the same time because if there’s one thing I love more than skirts, it’s skirts on clearance!

I was drawn to the bright pinks and oranges of this piece, and once I tried it on I discovered a bonus little treat: pockets! It was super comfy and the elastic waist allows me to wear it lower down closer to my hips, or higher up as an empire style, adding an extra layer of versatility. To complete the look I paired it with some fuchsia flats and an ombre necklace to compliment the shades in the skirt. This outfit turned out to be perfect for lounging poolside with my feet dipped in the water!
