How To Add Color To Your Closet This Spring

For anyone else who owns 90% black clothing, has a slight fear of bright colors, and wears a grout fit at least two days a week, spring it not our time to thrive.

I'm not a huge fan of color and I will stay wearing black and white until the day I die.

That's all good and fine for the cold, dreary winter months. However, with springtime comes a little bit more leniency when it comes to wearing some color.

So to anyone who's struggling to add a little pop of color to their wardrobe this spring, this one's for you.

Blue might not be a particularly "bright springy color" but it strays from basic black and white. If you're like me and not a huge fan of wearing color, starting out with navy blue might make that transition a little easier. Rompers are one of my favorite things to wear because they make any outfit look super put together with little to no effort. Pair a summer romper with a long sleeve shirt underneath or opt for a longer jumpsuit; whatever fits the weather!

Stripes are another trend I predict will be huge for the spring and summer. Whether they're on a romper, jumpsuit, or an off the shoulder top, stripes are a great way to add texture to an outfit.

For those of you who are really looking to stand out, now's the time to do it.

Orange has actually become one of my favorite colors to wear, especially around the spring and summer.

Bright colors are always popular around this time and that's not likely to change anytime soon. Shades of yellow, orange and pink are the perfect colors for the season. And what screams springtime more than floral print?

Finally, red. The one actual color that I will gladly wear all four seasons.

Red is a great accent color, looks good on everyone, and can add a little something to a basic black and white outfit.

And as I said before, stripes and other patterns are definitely coming back into style and I'm not complaining.

Most stores are finally releasing their spring and summer clothing so ditch that black winter coat and go find yourself something colorful!!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
