I’ve been closely following the rise of fellow, Portland ethical style blogger, Ellie Hughes of Selflessly Styled, and her latest piece is one I think you should all read.

2017 READER SURVERY QUESTIONS, ASKED & ANSWERED:
How tall are you? What are your measurements? (for reference — not cause I actually care) Love your weekend links, and outfits posts. Thanks for blogging!
I am 5’7″, and while I’m not super into measurements, ha! I wear a size 6 in clothing, and about 34″ in the chest. Hope that helps!
Are you an ally to Muslim, immigrant, and LGBTQ communities? I understand that this is not a political platform/space, and I truly appreciate the creative content you are putting out there. I’m a new-ish reader and admire your style, and I also appreciate spaces that are an escape from politics at this moment in time. But to be completely transparent, I identify as LGBTQ and don’t always feel welcome in Christian spaces, so it means a lot to me when bloggers who bring up their faith also bring up allyship, inclusivity, and support for vulnerable populations. Thanks for your consideration.
Thank you for this comment/question, and appreciating this space as a reprieve from politics. It’s a very disheartening time and it’s really hard for me to listen to or read the news right now. In answer to your question, yes! yes! and yes! I am lucky to have friends/family within each of the categories you named. I love people and do not count them or sort them based on their sexual orientation or nationality. I love people for who they are, and I am honored to count you among my readers. Thank you for bringing this up! xo
