Keeping Cool in Summer Dresses

Keeping Cool in Summer Dresses
Dresses for Summer? …GROUNDBREAKING!

First off- if you get that reference, THANK YOU! But as much as it makes me laugh, it’s true! Now that NYC is in phase 4 of COVID recovery, I’m spending more time outside and realizing quickly how few lightweight and airy items I have for summer! Don’t get me wrong, I’m stocked with tanks, tees, and summer sets but it would be much easier (and cooler) to not wear pants! Ladies, I KNOW you get me!!! Sometimes shorts simply do not cut it. We need breezy, loosing fitting items for those SUPER hot days and summer dresses are it!

How PCOS Changed My Life (in ways you’d never DREAM!)

How PCOS Changed My Life (in ways you’d never DREAM!)

Okay, I have a serious question for my fellow late 20-something women…

What did our parents do before the internet?

I know, how millennial of me to ask but HONESTLY! As an entrepreneur and curvy woman managing life with PCOS, I have found MAJOR validation, camaraderie and friendship VIRTUALLY. And truly can’t imagine life without it!

Now don’t get me wrong, I am so thankful for my PHYSICAL circle! But at times, they just don’t get me (ummm one of the MANY reasons I started Ditch the Clique!)

A Curvy Girl’s Guide to Swimwear

GIRL…

MAYBE I’m going out on a limb here, BUT I’m going to take a wild guess that at some point (regardless of your shape, size, race, or age) you’ve cringed at the idea of wearing (or even shopping for) swimwear.

And I get it! I’m a curvy girl you can find somewhere between loving her thick body and balancing PCOS weight fluctuations, who has ABSOLUTELY had those same cringey moments…

And I’m here to remind you, that it’s okay!We all have THOSE moments, THOSE days. But the key here is to not continually live in those negative feelings, and instead find a way to channel them into LOVING and celebrating your body NOW. Don’t get me wrong…truly learning to love YOU where you are NOW is a process! But as always, I want to share ways I’ve learned to love me in the moment in hopes of making your journey a bit lighter!

3 Summer Styles to Add to Your Wardrobe NOW

3 Summer Styles to Add to Your Wardrobe NOW

When I wrote my Spring Style blog post, I was CERTAIN COVID restrictions were coming to an end! I was confident life would be back to “normal” by summer…and…here we are. Although New York City is on the brink of normalcy with retailers and restaurants slowly reopening (within restriction of course), I’m ready to show off my summer style NOW (even if it is just for dinner with my husband or socially distant drinks with friends on my stoop).

One of the BEST things I’ve done for myself during quarantine is edit my wardrobe. Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time asking myself the important wardrobe questions like what colors am I drawn too? What fabrics do I find most comfortable (and sweat the least in LOL)? What styles make me feel the most ME?
