The Pic That Made Me Get My Shit Together

The day before the Hometown Throwdown I stressed about what to wear to our day long country music event. I knew I’d be taking plenty of photos and wanted to make sure I covered up my problem areas. Sunday came and Fitz surprised us with shirts.

#HometownThrowdown is FINALLY here!!!

A photo posted by • E L L E N • T A I L O R • (@ellentailor) on

What a sweet gesture! I put it on and noticed it was a lot tighter around my waist (my #1 problem area) than I wanted it to be. I was wearing a vest with fringe and thought that’d help cover it up. I didn’t feel 100% comfortable in the shirt but wanted to wear it because Fitz was kind enough to have it made for me.

I was self conscious the ENTIRE day but pushed those feelings aside and was so happy to meet so many of listeners! Hundreds of photos had to have been taken and most were from the chest up, thank GOD. Fast forward to Tuesday at 3:50am.

I woke up this morning and saw this photo someone posted on my Facebook page. What the HELL happened to me?! Sure, my waist is my problem area but that was not something I’d seen in a LONG time. REALITY CHECK!


Was I off the wagon? Sure. Did I think I’d fallen off the wagon and let it run over me? Nope. How did I get so out of hand…again?! To Anne, the person that posted this photo, thank you. This was what I needed to get my sh*t together.

So what now? I’ve got a date with my trainer, Karen, TODAY. We’re going to work out AND create a new program that I can use with my gym (thanks Precor Home Fitness!) My DietBet Challenge also started this week, too. I bet $30 that I’d lose 4% of my body weight in 4 weeks. If YOU need some motivation, join the Challenge! It’s not too late. But this isn’t a plug for anyone or anything. I’m simply sharing what my plan is moving forward.

Thanks to everyone who’s been following my journey. It’s not always easy. Sometimes you mess up. Insert some profound quote here about falling down and getting back up again. Meh. Wish me luck on day one.

Holy crap! Am I wearing a crop top?! Technically, no. It’s a bathing suit top. This is one of the last summer outfits I feel I can wear. I’m going to eat my words but I’m kind of ready for scarves and sweaters. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s live in the present. Below are links to my favorite skirts and crop tops…err…I mean bathing suit tops 😉 Clicking the photos will take you to the product as well!

My First Ever Snapchat Q&A

I’m WAY late to jump on the Snapchat bandwagon and after playing with it for a week or so I’m wondering how did I survive without it?! I asked you to send me some video snaps with questions about whatever. See if YOU are in my latest video, who my favorite co-worker is, and more!



VIDEO: I Splurged! #sorrynotsorry

On Friday night, I posted this tweet…

On Saturday morning, I binge shopped. After reading your suggestions I picked up products from Ulta, Sephora, the drugstore and even made my first stop into LUSH. Check out this haul to see everything I snagged. (You might want to grab popcorn because it’s 20 minutes long. Eek!)

Keep checking back for updates on this blog for my reviews. I will say that I’m absolutely in LOVE with Kat Von D’s Liquid Lipstick in “A Go-Go” and the MAC Zoom Mascara. oh em gee. #amaze I can’t wait to try everything else!

I pull fashion inspiration from many different places but this one I ripped directly off of Instagram. I’d say let’s do a “Who Wore It Better” but Chrisspy would win, hands down! I started following her fairly recently after I saw a post that she tagged with the genius caption, “Thick thighs save lives.” Yassss! My kind of girl.

I don’t have the confidence to pull off everything she wears (yet) but when I saw this look, a light bulb went off. I had all of the pieces in my closet, I just never thought to put it together. While the basics are identical, I added my own twist with accessories. Take for example these reflective shades I picked up at a local vintage shop in Snohomish, Washington, and the Kendra Scott necklace I snagged via RocksBox. (Use the code “ellenbff4” for a free month!)

My favorite accessory is the JORD Watch. This stunner is a handmade, wooden watch and unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. I had a hard time trying to pick just one of their gems and ultimately went with the Cora watch in Purple Heart & Pearl. Check out the entire JORD Watch line for both men and women here. #flickadawrist Who do YOU follow for fashion inspiration? Is it someone on Instagram? A YouTuber? A celebrity? Drop me a comment below because I’d love to check them out!
