Happy November!! I’ve said before; I love the crisp fall air and I love autumn fashion. I’ve done “outfit of the day” posts randomly in the past, but recently I’ve been more inspired than ever. I’ve received emails from women who’ve shared with me that they look up to me for promoting my curvy figure. It really struck a chord with me and made me think about how extremely important it is for all healthy women to embrace their bodies and curves.
There was a period of time where I was very uncomfortable in my body. I fought with an eating disorder for a few years. About five years ago I decided to give up worrying about weight and label size and to really start focusing on health, love & acceptance. I’ve finally learned to accept the skin I am in and to work with what I have while still always striving to become a stronger, healthier person.
I will never be stick thin, it’s just not in my bones. And you know what? That’s okay. I don’t need to be skinny, thin or “average” by fashion standards. I just need to be me. I tried once to fit into the mainstream modeling world of “standards” and it left me looking frail and feeling constantly obsessed with all things weight. Whatever size or shape you are; love yourself and treat your body well. There are so many more important things in life than striving to be thin. I say, embrace your individuality. It makes life far more interesting, don’t you think? No two leaves are the same….just saying! They are each spectacular works of art!

Very, very important blog post here, B. I’m so tired of hearing models talk about body acceptance…sounds so much more real coming from someone who worked to accept herself. Nice. If only we could get this to much younger girls…when my 7 yr old niece wouldn’t come out of the bathroom in Disney World in her bathing suit, my stomach felt a little sick. After a 10 min chat with her, she was out and swimming fine…too many girls won’t get that pep talk! Thank you, B.
Britanie-excellent read 🙂 I am keeping this for my daughters as they grow older. You are a beautiful person on the inside and the outside. I love reading your blogs, very down to earth. Thank you for reminding me we are all different and special in our own way. XO
Thank you so much for your comment. To think that you would save this for your daughters is a true blessing and the biggest compliment I could receive. Never forget that we are all special in so many different ways 🙂
You’re so beautiful! The message you say here is beautiful as well as important for any person to remember ❤ Thank you for the inspiration and kind words that I needed hear! ❤
Christina – thank you so much xoxo
You’re so very welcome! =D
Love seeing your images. I’m shorter than average (5’1″) and have a similar figure to yours. Seeing “plus-sized” model photography is encouraging, but seeing images of you is personally more moving to me, since it seems so rare to see fashion photography of women who are closer to my height. (I don’t think you’re quite as short as me, but still! I get the feeling you’re not taller than 5’7”. <3) Thank you for sharing, love. X
Hey love – I also enjoy seeing curvier women who aren’t 5’8″ or taller. Not all of us with curves are tall!! I am actually 5’6″ but in the modeling world that is considered short. You’re beautiful and I love your body ❤
simply beautiful. britanie, you’re a dream!
aww thank you!!!
Love your style, attitude, and blog!
You have such a gift for fashion, makeup, and photography.
I’m in my mid to “late” 30’s and have spent most of my life nitpicking on my appearance. Now I’m at a place where I just want to love me as I am, even if I’m not perfect, and enjoy life. After so long of not loving myself, you wonder-how do I go about doing that? Folks like you inspire me to give up my negative self-talk. It’s not always easy but thank you for posts like this which give me “permission” to do it.
Thank you so much. I’m so happy to hear that you are finally at a place where you are enjoying life and yourself as you are now. I am so happy that my posts could inspire you in any way. If I can help just one person to feel like they don’t need that negative self-talk anymore than I have done my job and I am happy! Remember that you have permission to love yourself and to enjoy yourself no matter what size you are or how you look. Never forget that ❤ xx
Love the outfit, and your photos are amazing!
Thank you babe 🙂
I love your body! It’s so beautiful and curvy and PROPORTIONATE! You are lucky to have that nice hourglass shape. That’s what I think is attractive, in any size. This was definitely an amazing post- very inspiring and beautiful. Love the outfit!
Hey Sara, thank you for your comment! I really appreciate it 🙂 xoxox
Great post! Your photos are beautiful and I love this look.
Thank you so much!
Beautiful photos and great blog post! I really enjoyed it – such an important issue. I’m always happy when I see photos of curvier women who feel great in their bodies, because it’s so inspiring and encouraging. It’s such a waste of time to chase some stereotyped body image.
Hey Anette – thank you for your comment. I love to see women who are happy in their bodies, whatever shape or size. It is so important to embrace yourself in every aspect. I agree – chasing a stereotyped body image is the biggest waste of time!
I love posts like this! Body acceptance is one of those things that is a constant challenge. Hearing about your story is such an inspiration. You look wonderful – and more importantly, from your words, I can tell you FEEL wonderful. Rock on!
Thank you so much. I think body acceptance is a challenge for everyone. It’s something we are all striving towards. No one is perfect and we all have down days but it’s important to remember that you truly do need to love yourself as you are now. Negativity will never help anything. It took me a long time to realize that but now that I have I can’t see myself ever going back to the days of self-loathing. Life is too short!
Nice look :). Btw, i’ve just sent you a message on your Youtube channel, don’t know if you still check your messages, i’d like to know if the All natural face vegan magic eye shadow primer is effective or not. Thank you for answering me :). xx
