#NYNYStyleProject – Come Join In!

If you follow me on Instagram (which if you don’t why the hell not!) then you know for the past few months I have loved joining in with Modern Mummy’s #NYNYStyleProject. 

I can hear some of you cry but what is it, well in Katy’s word here we go…

What the #NYNYStyle Project is all about. 
The main idea behind the Project is to encourage women {ALL women, not just mums} to feel better about themselves. It’s that simple! Today’s fast paced world makes it all too easy to forget about looking after yourself and taking time for you. The Project is all about taking you out of your comfort zone and introducing you to trends, designers and products you might not have heard of before.

 

I started joining in for a bit of fun, the prompts were a great idea and I love Instagram, it was lovely to do something simple and not have to write a whole blog post, after the first month though I realised it started to influence my outfits for the day, which was brilliant, it allowed me to look deeper into my wardrobe. Then 2 months ago after a break the #NYNYStyleProject came back at a crucial time for me, I had just found the world of Plus Size Fashion blogging and I realised I no longer needed to hide away and not share selfies, or outfit posts.

I spent years uploading outfit posts on Flickr before the days of WIWW and fashion posts, I wanted to do that again but had lost my confidence, the #NYNYStyleProject gave that back to me, it got me thinking each morning, I would look at the prompt and decide on an outfit according to it, no more just chucking the same frumpy clothes each day. I embraced taking pictures of the part of my outfit that focussed on the prompt and then braving taking whole outfit pics to share.

The feedback was awesome, so much so I started #Fashionfridayplussized on my blog, Katy inspired me, not only with her many gorgeous outfits, especially her clogs (which I went on to buy) and I am not the only one, in the last few months there has been over 1500 photo uploads for the project.

So why I am here talking about all this ?

Well other than telling you how awesome it is and inspiring for any woman, I am also very honoured that Katy asked me to become part of the team for the #NYNYStyleProject – this is such an honour for me and I am excited to work with not only Katy, but also the stunning Carissa of Little Likely Lads who has also joined the team.

I strongly urge you to check out both of their blogs and Instagrams, they are seriously styling ladies.
