I'm thanking the Kardashians - seriously! Before you roll your eyes, hear me out. Growing up I have always had a larger tushie and have never liked it. I coveted the bodies of my friends with thin legs and tiny hips and wondered how I could achieve this for myself. Obviously you're born with what you're born with so any diet, slimming clothing or shaping under garment couldn't hide the fact that mama had some junk in her trunk.
Enter the Kardashians. Sure they're over-saturating, obnoxious, and their rise to fame is of questionable nature - but the girls have booties, and they're not afraid to flaunt them. They've proven to mainstream media, with it's celebration of too-thin bodies that it's okay for women to have some curves.
So how does this relate to me? When I first tried on this adorable, form fitting midi dress from Dynamite, my gut reaction was to retreat since it showed off all of my curves. Then, as I was critically staring at myself in the mirror, I had another thought: "this dress kind of gives you a Kardashian butt - and this one is real." Well say no more, that was enough for me to throw on a pair of sunnies, my favourite kicks and strut out of the condo while whistling Destiny's Childs' "Bootylicious."

These Cole Haan GrandPro Tennis Sneakers are some of my favourite shoes in my closet. I love their understated silhouette with the subtle taupe detail in the back - plus, the fact that they're super comfy is a huge plus! Wearing these running shoes always takes me back to Paris, where both men and women seemed to live in their low-cut tennis sneakers.
What do you guys think? Is it ridiculous to thank the Kardashians for being comfortable with your body type, or can you relate? Let me know!
