Okay these high waisted culottes come in 2 other colors and I’m going to need those too! The fit is so good and I think they are so flattering. I am wearing a size 4 for reference. My top is another adorable find from Anjouil’s boutique that I shared on my Instagram story try on over the weekend. Don’t forget you can use code ROSELYN15 on your purchases at Anjouil’s for 15% off!
When I was in Utah last week I went to dinner with a sweet blogger friend and we got into the conversation about how it is so hard not to compare yourself to others. Even with personal successes, social media really has a way of putting someone in your face who is “doing so much better than you”. I know it’s tough not getting caught up in the “Keep up with the Jones'” mentality or I guess this day in age “Keeping up with the Kardashian’s. With social media being such an important factor in my job in the blogging world and as it rapidly continues to grow as a marketing strategy for every company I really have to check myself on this topic more often than I can count.
Today I wanted to share 4 reminders I continually have to tell myself and maybe they will be helpful for you too!
4 Reminders To Stop The Internal Comparison Game
Quit Focusing on the Wrong Person
When you compare yourself to others, you are focusing on another person what they have done, what they have achieved, and what they are doing. Remember, you have no control over this other person. All you can control is you. So check yourself (as I say this to myself) and your attitude.
Remember You Do Not Have The Full Picture
When you look at someone else’s success, you only see the result. You may be looking at years of effort, comparing your beginnings to their end. By now we know that social media is the curated highlight reel of other people’s lives. To achieve the success you desire, you need to walk the road to success. It never helps to jump to the end and make comparisons to those who have already arrived.
Life Is Not A Competition
Since life is not a game, we should stop competing. Life is something that happens every day, every second. It is something to be enjoyed. Many individuals who are super successful in one aspect of life may be complete failures in other aspects. We do not know what they had to endure to get there.
If You Have To Compare, Compare Yourself To Yourself
Instead of comparing yourself to other people create the habit of comparing yourself to yourself. Look back on how much you have grown, what you have achieved and what progress you have made towards your goals. Embrace the journey and celebrate your wins. This habit creates gratitude and is a reminder for you to celebrate all of the great things you have accomplished and how far you have come. Your self comparison is the only comparing that should matter. **said to myself in the mirror every week. If you are improving, that is all that matters.
I hope my 4 tips on comparison really brought something to you today. Comparison is something I battle often and I just want you to know that you are not alone. We ALL do it and hopefully these 4 tips will help us do it less!
I mentioned on stories last night that I grabbed a ton of items from a local boutique last week. Anjouil’s has so many really cute pieces and everything is so affordable! I’ll be sharing a try on session this weekend but I wanted to share this perfect transitional maxi dress with you ASAP because I feel like it’s going to be a hot seller!

Maxi Dress Styled For Fall
Outfit Details: Maxi Dress: Anjouil’s | Denim Jacket: Old Navy | Booties: Nordstrom (I purchased mine from the Nordstrom sale last year but these are almost identical) | White Sandals: Amazon | Sunglasses: Quay | Straw Handbag: Amazon | Hat: Anjouil’s

Fashion at the end of July is like being in limbo. Some people are preparing for back to school and with the Nordstrom sale being so huge and promoting Fall fashion it’s like “what do I buy?!”
I still got vacation on my mind and it’s still hot AF out so do I take advantage of all the swimsuits on sale or do I buy a peacoat and leather jacket? LOL.
That is why I wanted to share the perfect transitional dress to take you from Summer into Fall effortlessly. I love the burnt orange stripes on this maxi and the length is perfect for your 5’3.5″ girl. The straps are adjustable as well which I love. I am wearing a size medium for reference.
Friendly reminder to swing by my IG stories this weekend to see what else I picked up last week!
Coming at you on this Monday with another cute work outfit option! I love the ruffle detail on these high waist ankle pants. They fit true to size and are a flattering fit. I am wearing a size 4 short and I didn’t have to hem them. They are extremely comfortable and can easily be styled casually for the weekend too.
I styled my stripe ankle pants with the downtown Express cami I wear all the time and this light green blazer is the same as the hot pink one I shared on the blog last Monday. Clearly I love it 🙂 Also, this little Louis Vuitton bag is another purchase from Fashionphile I purchased last month. I just wanted a small everyday cross body LV style and this one was the perfect size!
Technically I am not supposed to share until later today but I wanted to share with all of my blog readers first! I flew into Salt Lake City yesterday because I am collaborating on another collection with Gibson Look you guys!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!! This is insane and I am so grateful for another opportunity to work with them. I will be sharing more later today and of course will be spilling all the details as I can!
Oh what do you know? I bought a ton of fashion items from Amazon this month LOL. I mentioned this in Monday’s blog post but I am teaming up with 6 other gals to share some of our favorite finds and today is my day! I am so excited to share this Amazon fashion haul because some of the items I have posted on my Instagram feed already and have had a great response from you guys so I have a good feeling you’ll love the rest of the items as well!
I am putting all of the direct links and sizing info below but if you want to see the items in video form you can swing by my Instagram stories here. PLUS we are giving away three $100 gift cards so be sure to check that out as well!
Let’s get this Amazon haul started!
Jumpsuit (runs true to size, wearing a medium) | Heels | Necklace (it comes as a set but they are not connected so you can wear them separately if you wanted to)
Pink Floyd Tee (true to size) | Leopard Shorts (true to size, wearing medium but when I pulled them out of the bag they looked like a size triple zero. Just a heads up they look small when packaged but run true to size LOL) | Black Studded Sandals (true to size, if you are in between size up)
Pink Floyd Tee (true to size) | Ribbed Midi Skirt (such a great Free People dupe. I am wearing a medium here but is a bit snug on my hips so I may try ordering a large and see if I like the fit better) | Heels
