Want to work out your body image issues? Go to yoga teacher training. After sixteen days of 2+ vigorous yoga classes a day, I’m feeling ah-mah-zing. My relationship with my body is totally changing. Before, I nitpicked over every squish and jiggle. But once your body can get into a headstand (you read that right), it’s hard to do anything but admire its strength. I may still wiggle and jiggle, but when I look in the mirror I see a strong body that I’m really proud of.
Speaking of yoga teacher training, I can’t believe this is the third post I’m writing from Charleston. It’s funny that my only contribution to the blog has been my capsule wardrobe posts, since nothing but yoga gear has touched my body in 2+ weeks. I haven’t worn makeup, blow-dried my hair, or done anything remotely fancy. While that’s been awesome, I am purposely going to make “fancy” plans on our next day off because I’d like to remember what I look like when I’m not a sweaty mess. (A strong, kickass, headstand-doing sweaty mess, but still a sweaty mess.)
Today’s outfit is one of my favorites because it blends my two style personalities beautifully. A little preppy (the white jeans and gold wedges) a little Portland Chic (the olive tunic). I don’t have many outfits that would fit in whether I’m in Portland, Charlotte, or Charleston, but this is one of them.
Less is more. The beauty of this outfit is it’s simplicity: the bright pop of white, the earthy olive, and the gold touches. Keep it simple. No pops of color or crazy accessories needed.
Dress up basics. Gold hoops get an unexpected twist with this pretty earring. You’ll wear them with everything. #trust.
Think texture. This olive tunic is summery thanks to the gauzy feel. Keep fabrics breezy if you’re wearing darker colors.

Major props to my girl Kendra for making my legs look good in this pic. I’m sure my body nitpicking isn’t over, but I’m making progress, y’all.
