My Monthly Favorites | August 2020

When I look back on the month of August, honestly? I feel exhausted just thinking about it.

Bloated Wardrobe Picks: Boho Dresses for Summer

As a bloated girl, I used to dread summertime. The tight shorts and itty bitty bikinis felt so restrictive and uncomfortable. The whole season, I craved my comfy sweats. I couldn't wait for fall, when I could switch back to boots, leggings, and loose tops. But as I've gotten older, my summer style has evolved…
