#NoFOMO TargetStyle

Let’s get something out of the way – never in a million years did I think I’d be sharing photos of myself in a swimsuit with the internet!  By no means do I always have perfect body image, and I definitely get insecure about how I look in a bikini.  There is something about putting on a swimsuit that can make your confidence take a serious hit.  Then I heard a truly startling statistic – 36% of women would turn down Justin Timberlake if he invited them to a beach party because they don’t feel they’re in good enough shape!  When women are turning down JT, you know there is something wrong!

When I heard about Target’s #NoFOMO campaign, I knew I had to jump on board.  By encouraging women to shed their insecurities and embrace their body exactly as it is, we all will be able to truly enjoy our vacations, summers and bikini season!

Since I live in Minnesota, I wasn’t truly able to enjoy swimsuit weather.  BUT since I was committing to loving my body, I decided to go for it and take my swimsuit photos OUTSIDE IN THE SNOW! 😁 I mean, go big or go home right?!  Plus, it’s not like I can teleport to a tropical beach to take photos for my blog {although that would be amazing. When is someone going to invent teleportation?!}

Target is such a go-to destination for swimwear, and I was blown away while shopping.  There are so many different styles, sizes, colors… the options are endless!  Plus, they have numerous styles to help you find a fit that will flatter your specific body type.

So, this summer I vow to dance by a pool in my bikini {heyyyy Vegas! 👋🏼} and embrace confidence! #NoFOMO

Cold Weather Game Day

December 3, 2015


NFL Shop Hat (c/o) || NFL Shop Baseball Tee (c/o) || Chunky Knit Cardigan || Plaid Blanket Scarf || Ripped Denim Skinny Jeans || Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody || Brown Ankle Booties {old, similar here}

Heading to a football game is one of the best ways to spend a Sunday, but with the cold weather officially upon us it can be tough to stay warm during a cold weather game day!  Tailgating is one of my very favorite things, but it’s tricky to dress stylish, warm and still show your team spirit!  As a Minnesota transplant, I used the NFL Shop to pick out some fabulous Vikings gear that still was trendy and cute.  For the cold weather games, there are some tips and tricks that can keep you warm, cozy and fashionable all season long!

The biggest trick is, of course, layering!  I instantly was obsessed with this baseball tee from the NFL Shop, and knew it would be perfect alone or layered.  By pairing it with a chunky knit cardigan and distressed skinny jeans, the outfit stays comfy, casual and warm.  My favorite trick?  Wear a blanket scarf to the game!  It will look adorable as an outfit accessory, and is totally practical to use as a blanket during the game to keep you warm.  Toss on your favorite pair of shoes and an on-the-go bag, and you are ready to cheer on your team in style!
