My Hot Girl Summer....
The hashtag “hot girl summer” was created by Meg aka Megan thee Stallion. Due to the fact I’m in my early thirties and still keep any music from the late 80s to the early 2000s on repeat as if it just came out, I’m completely out the loop on knowing who sis is really. I do however love the hashtag and the whole movement women have been doing this summer. They are completely living and loving the skin they are in now.
Almost every chica IG page is poppin with a catchy caption followed by the hashtag hot girl summer. Of course with anything liberating online, here comes the haters. Mostly men saying how we need to focus on x,y, and z instead of having a HGS. That is bull crap and I will not stand for it…AT ALL.
This year I made the hard decision to live below my means. I’m planning and saving for two big purchases the beginning on 2020. So I did not have a lot of trips planned this year like I usually do. Taking my yearly trip to Miami was the BIG trip of the year for me. In order to prepare for this trip, I was going to workout, eat right, and try to lose these pesky 20 lbs. However, July hit and I was still holding on tight to the weight.
Knowing my trip was less than three weeks away, I decided to do something different. Embrace all my curves, tiger strips, and rolls for this vacation. If you read my book Her Buried Secrets you will know I battled with low self esteem when I was younger. Honestly, I have to constantly remind myself I’m baddie to reframe from that toxic mindset.
Instead of getting a bunch of coverups or one pieces to camouflage the weight I was holding. I ditch that idea and started to map out my vacation wardrobe.
I packed all my hot girl outfits I purchased last year from Fashion Nova. Yup, they still had tags on them and all. Why couldn’t I wear them again? Oh because my little belly fat…..naw I’m about to get my whole life this trip. Listen my whole wardrobe was short bodycon dresses, two pieces, and shorts. Who going to check me boo?
I’m so happy I decided to live my best hot girl summer life in Miami. I really fell completely in love with TSJ all over again. I finally stopped working towards trying to be perfect and started embracing where I am now in my weight loss journey.
Being a hot girl this summer was more mental than physical for me. I know, I know, Megan was like chase that bag and not worry about no man. I’m with that too sis. Listen, I’m all about building, wealth, and health.
I did post some thirst traps on my IG page too though. Listen forever a tease….
