If you have been following me for a while you know tight/stretchy dresses are not my thing.  I love oversized things, a good A line, and flowy dresses. However, nothing fits in my closet anymore ...and I kind of wish I had a few more cotton dresses like  this one.

This pregnant combo is very common in the Kardashian family; they love bodycon dresses with duster coats and heels- and well, like I said before, they are out of my comfort zone. But again, all the fun stuff happens when you try stuff out of your comfort zone. 

I originally wore it for a maternity shoot with my friend Karla Garcia- I added a cozy long cardigan and it was all shot at home. After she left, I had little time to change to go to the Create & Cultivate event I was speaking at. So I told myself: WHY NOT, let's just add this duster I have and give it a go. And I really pushed myself because I wore something I was not used to in front of at least a hundred people. It was fun!

Sharing the "stage" with Hugette Montesinos from DisfunkshionMag, Annie Vazquez from The Fashion Poet, Martha Graeff, and Carolina Lindo from I'm Not Sorry Darling.

We talked about our favorite beauty trends, how to put our best face forward, beauty diversity in the industry, not letting standards define you, and SO MUCH more.

It was such an inspiring afternoon. I always love doing talks because I love hearing what my fellow bloggers have to say. I get out MORE inspired than ever, and these ladies were no exception. I'm very happy to have been part of this panel. I want to thank the Create & Cultivate team for believing in us, in Miami, and empowering each other.
