So glad you're here.Hey babe, & welcome to The Candid Millennial! My name is Mary and I am passionate about inspiring the modern woman in finding beauty in the booty and simply loving herself! Aside from sharing outfits that flatter your gorgeous shape, I share my experiences in career, travel, fitness, beauty, & more!
Hi babes! December is here and that means there are tons of parties, celebrations, and gatherings popping up on the calendar!
Not sure what outfit to wear or where to start? I’m here for ya boo! You know I love to plan ahead – and that’s exactly what I’m going to help you do!
I’m super excited to share with ya’ll my favorite pieces this season – from sweaters, jeans, the BEST holiday dress, boots and skirts. There are SO many fun items to share in this post!
Today I wanted to share 7 Christmas or Holiday party looks you can wear – ranging from casual to super dressed up! Each outfit I put together is meant to flatter that beautiful hourglass frame. I will explain in each option how we can accomplish this with each look.
Look #1: Leather Pants + Holiday Sweater + Booties
With so many incredible food options in Dallas, it can be hard to narrow down where to dine on a Friday night! I prefer a restaurant with good energy, good food, and great service.
After working a long week, I cherish the moments I get to sit down and be humbly served a delicious, thoughtfully prepared meal. I typically cook meals Sunday-Thursday evening for my little family. But the weekends are my time to unwind, reward myself and enjoy my loved ones!
For those of you who are new here – my name is Mary and I am the founder of The Candid Millennial. I’m SO excited to have you here and talk ALL things millennial!
Before we get started – I just wanted to make a quick comment on the outfit featured in this post. I am L O V I N G this wide leg pant trend this season. This pair of LEITH pants is SO cute and comes in SO many beautiful colors. Plus, they’re under $100!
Like you and many of my readers, I fill my life with all the things: career, side hustle (blog), charity, family and so much more. My biggest motivator is personal growth and career growth, all while trying to find “balance” in my life.
One of my favorite things to do during the fall is to go to brunch. For all of my fellow Texans, October presents the most beautiful and perfect weather.
Typically, temperatures reach a high of 80 and a low of 60, allowing us to brunch in around 70° temperature which is not only perfect, but also beautiful!
How To Take Better Selfies
I know, I know, some of you might be thinking “could this post be any more narcissistic?!” I mean yeah, it could be, but who doesn’t want to put their best foot forward and present the world with the best image of themselves?!
If you don’t care, that’s totally cool. Let’s catch up on the next post. But today I wanted to share all the selfie-taking secrets I’ve collected over the years and what I’ve narrowed down to what I call “selfie essentials”.
I’ve struggled with finding clothes that flatter my figure for my ENTIRE life! Sometimes my “usual” size is too small, and other times it’s too big.
What’s even more challenging, is finding a dress that fits me all the way around (without being too short in the back and too long in the front). After learning I wasn’t the only woman who faces this challenge, I wanted to do something about it!
My goal with TCM is to take the guesswork out of shopping for clothes and eliminate disappointment after trying on clothes at stores for HOURS and leaving with nothing.
I genuinely want to help YOU – the woman who also struggles with finding cute outfits that flatter your beautiful body.
Every outfit I post about on Instagram or on this blog is built to flatter the hourglass figure or pear-shaped woman.
