I AM WHAT'S UNDERNEATH

12.18.2014

Elisa & Lily from StyleLikeU have created a movement for self- acceptance and I am joining them and so should you. Haven't you at some point felt you weren't good enough? I know I have. 

Growing up I was teased about my body. I was too skinny and flat chested or I was too tall. In my late teens I developed the curves I got from my momma. Then I was too fat. Still today, I am making someone mad about my body. Do I care? No. Because I believe those people that leave such negative comments are nothing but bullies and miserable people. The only thing that matters is that YOU love your body. You don't need acceptance from anyone but yourself. So love your Skinny, Curvy, Plus Size, Stretch, Cellulite body. Wear what you want to wear. Be who you want to be. You are beautiful are you are.
Join the movement by spreading the word on Instagram #IAMWHATSUNDERNEATH and/or donate here to support this amazing thing Elisa and Lily are doing.  Hip Hip Hooray!

  1. I'm a long time reader, but I've never commented. I just want to tell you that I keep coming back because I admire the way you embrace your body. I also have lots of curves and love to see how you dress for your body, not in spite of it. I also had a baby, and as cheesy as it sounds, you've been a helpful wardrobe inspiration!

  8. I'm currently 6 months pregnant and feeling really unsure of how my body is changing. I awoke to this post and just want to say, this was so inspiring to me! Thank you for sharing this and making me feel a little better about what I might look like after this little boy is born!

  9. Marilyn Monroe has this saying "To all of the women who think they are fat because they aren't a size zero. You are beautiful. It's society that's ugly." Words to live by...
