ModCloth :: Fashion Truth

ModCloth's founder Susan Koger recently wrote a letter and made a commitment to represent all sizes in both their models and in ModCloth's clothing. I think that her statement about reflecting women as they really are is so important. People are all different shapes and sizes and a company that reflects that in their advertising is a company that I am proud to work with.
No one should feel excluded when it comes to fashion and feeling great in their clothes. If you are interested in this movement you can find more information here.

How do you guys feel about the fashion industry and how it represents women?

I have been wearing them almost exclusively since the end of May and they are the greatest summer shoes ever because of those cute cut outs. Super comfy with good air flow makes for an increcible pair of shoes. 

So, I tried to take jumping photos but I didn't end up liking any. I did however really like these photos of me preparing to jump. They were just too silly not to share. What am I even doing?

Well, that's all. I'm so happy that I grabbed some outfit photos again last weekend. I think that I am going to be really upset that I went such a long time without any. It is really neat to look back on these types of photos and see what I was wearing and what my hair was like. Speaking of hair, I have a ton of natural colour going on and it's close enought to the dyed stuff that I will be able to let it grow out without looking too crazy. I'm actually strangely excited to get the top layer of my hair all natural!

Photos :: 365 (August 14 - 20, 2014)

226/365 :: The prettiest flowers at the Grimsby Farmer's Market. Also, zinnias are the prettiest and I need some for our garden next year!
227/365 :: Look at this face!
228/365 :: Oh man, Milo is cute in Ivan's belt.
229/365 :: More photos of the pretty flowers. The colours were just too good!
230/365 :: I want to share our most played records with you guys. This is definitely one of them.
231/365 :: Milo's new thing is bringing me to the record player and asking for music.
232/365 :: Oh yeah, for a couple days Milo was really into wearing scarves on his head while we listened to music.
See our strange collection of books? Quite a wide variety of topics mixed together there. They probably don't all need to be on the coffee table but whatever. Right now we are in the middle of rearranging our kitchen and livivg room. Actually, the bedroom and office too. It's nice to change things up every now and then.

I'm still thinking about those farmer's market flowers from these photos. I wish our cats didn't bother with flowers and that I could put them anywhere in the house. Maybe one day they will decide that plants are no big deal and they don't care to investigate them any chance they get.

Still on the topic of flowers, has anyone ever had any luck harvesting seeds from cut zinnias. I've realized that I love them (thanks to this bouquet) and I'm letting theses ones dry to save the seeds for next year. It says that you are supposed to let them dry out while still in the ground but I'm going to just give it a try anyways.

I hope everyone had a great long weekend and good luck to everyone who is starting back at school or have kids starting back!
