As my weekly link roundups illustrate, I read a lot of blogs. A LOT. And I’d say I add two to three new ones to my feedly list every week, so my “lot” is ever-growing. Today, I want to share a few of the body image-focused and generally body-positive blogs that I enjoy and hope you’ll share some of YOUR favorites in the comments, too!

Doing The Time Warp

You may have noticed that a few more amazing contributors have joined the Already Pretty team, and today I’m thrilled to introduce Cassie, author of Reluctant Femme.

But here are the reasons why I’m happy to endorse this company despite zero personal experience:

Amazing use of color

I’ve got pages of Gudrun in my inspiration binder, and loads of images on my color pairing Pinterest board. Aside from J.Crew, the folks at Gudrun Sjödén are my color-mixing idols. I can’t even count how many outfits have been inspired by images of these clothes styled into quirky, creative ensembles. read more
