After taking a little break to, you know, have a baby, I’m thrilled to be contributing to Darling’s print edition once again! As a former Darling Magazine editor, I’ve always loved what they represent, but I’m especially obsessed with their recent #RealNotRetouched campaign. With all of the images we’re exposed to everyday of women who have been photoshopped to look like a “better,” more “perfect” version of themselves, it’s refreshing to read the pages of Darling and see diverse, beautiful women that have not been altered in any way.
The article I wrote is called, “Pretty, Prettier, Prettiest” and is, of course, about beauty—my favorite topic! It specifically addresses the idea of beauty superiority. Let me know if you read it—I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Now, the outfit. I got the top and both pieces of jewelry for Christmas and am loving their simplicity and timelessness. They are pieces I definitely will be wearing for many years to come. The swingy-yet-structured nature of the top is the perfect mix of comfort and style that can easily be dressed up or dressed down, and the bracelet feels like a work of art. And that necklace? The perfect topper for a simple tee if you ask me.
