So Fun fact, I used to be crazy self conscious of my Shawn Johnson arms… seriously, I have never done any weight lifting but I still look like I am training for the 2016 Rio games. Anyways, I spent a good six months working out twice a day every day for 45 min each trying every trick in the book to in an attempt to slim my unwanted arm candy… but no cigar. It drove me crazy and as I continued to be unsuccessful, my self-consciousness only grew.  Despite living in 125 degree Arizona heat at the time, I refused to bare my arms wearing party cardies over every tank and never showing a single bicep. One night, I went to the movies and ate my weight in red vines, I would usually then go home and double my highly work to punish myself for bad behavior before when I realized, I had gone a bit Color Me Crazy… and for what? Who cares if I can’t go sleeveless without inviting everyone to the gun show? It was obviously who I am naturally, so why should I be ashamed? Just like that everything changed, I started embracing my body for how it is and stopped trying to alter it. I’m never gonna have crazy skinny arms, and there’s no thigh gap here, but I decided to own it 😉 because life is too short (and donuts are too good) to do anything else!dvf wrap dress dvf wrap dress dvf wrap dress leopard clutch leopard clutch leopard clutch long bob lob long bob long bob log bob hair long bob hair color me courtney mixed fashion blogger black fashion blogger color me courtney color me courtney black fashion blogger new york fashion bigger best fashion blogger best black fashion blogger new york fashion blogger fashion blogger courtney color me courtney blogger spring dress summer dress dvf wrap dress dvf wrap dress spring dress leopard clutch spring style what to wear for spring spring style what to wear for spring spring outfit summer outfit A DVF wrap dress is a closet must have (see how I wore my Fall fav here)! It literally looks amaze-balls on everybody type and can be worn so many ways. This one is a little low cut but still sophisticated enough to wear to a casual wedding or outdoor springy cocktail party. Speaking of wrap dresses, here are some of my current DVF favs that you’ll love in your closet now, but also 5 years from now – they are just that amaze.

I opted for a delicate Moneé Elizabeth necklace to accentuate the V, nudge wedges and a leopard clutch!dvf wrap dress dvf wrap dress dvf wrap dress leopard clutch leopard clutch leopard clutch long bob lob long bob long bob log bob hair long bob hair color me courtney mixed fashion blogger black fashion blogger color me courtney color me courtney black fashion blogger new york fashion bigger best fashion blogger best black fashion blogger new york fashion blogger fashion blogger courtney color me courtney blogger spring dress summer dress dvf wrap dress dvf wrap dress spring dress leopard clutch spring style what to wear for spring spring style what to wear for spring spring outfit summer outfit color me courtney color me courtney black fashion blogger new york fashion bigger best fashion blogger best black fashion blogger new york fashion blogger fashion blogger courtney color me courtney blogger spring dress summer dress dvf wrap dress dvf wrap dress spring dress leopard clutch spring style what to wear for spring spring style what to wear for spring spring outfit summer outfit

    I can’t wait for Spring either! Lovee that wrap dress! I’m so glad you were able to overcome your insecurities because girl, I WISH I had your arms! I used to be obsess over my legs the same way but no matter how much I ran, how many leg routines I incorporated into my workout to reduce the size of them even a little, all it did was tone and remain the same size. I think the sooner we accept and embrace the things we can’t change, the sooner we’ll learn to love our bodies the way it is. 🙂 You’re totally awesome the way you are! Oh and P.S. No thigh gap here either! Haha High five!

    You look fabulous! Love the backdrop and that clutch. It’s funny you say that. I’m the same way, Never played sports and I maybe hit the gym like 3 times a year, but my arms looks like I work out. I used to hate it but now i’m like “ehn, whatever”
