Honest talk :: A lot less hate, a lot more love

“She doesn’t dress very well.”

“She’s kind of a hot mess between the yellow hair, too short/too young looks and the open mouthed smiles.”

“She’s also extremely annoying on Instastories.”

“What an idiot!”

“I couldn’t believe she was prancing around Fashion Week like she knew anything about style.”

“All of her skirts and dresses are way too short for her thick legs.”

 

It was brought to my attention this past Sunday night that a new thread on a blogger “snarking” site was dedicated to me. It was started this past week and a dozen or so women have already jumped on the train of mocking me. The quotes above are just a few of the hateful comments I {regretfully} read. One of the nastiest comments came from an anonymous fellow blogger that said that she saw me in person at last week in NYC.

I’m not going to lie. Reading these comments stung. Bad.

I would like to pretend that I’m thick skinned and can turn away and not care what others say. But I am not. And I can’t.

Even though I put myself out there in curated photos on social media each day, I am still a human. I am still a woman.

I am not immune to feeling the crushing blow of judgment and undue criticism.

 

Why?

I am a 36 year old mother of two. I’ve struggled with my weight this year more than ever. When I look in the mirror, I don’t love what I see.

I’ve struggled with anxiety this year more than ever, trying to figure out how to balance marriage, motherhood, a growing and demanding business, friendships, travel, a dad undergoing cancer treatment and active, school-age twins {one struggling with anxiety, too}

I constantly feel like I am dropping balls, forgetting important to-do’s and late to appointments… and I give myself very little grace.

I have stretch marks on my stomach from carrying twins, which is I only only wear one-piece bathing suits. I hate my arms so that is why I prefer to show my legs. I have stubborn spots of melisma on my face that appeared during IVF treatments seven years ago and I loathe the discoloration when I am make-up free.

I worry each day that I am not doing enough. That I am not enough. I struggle with people pleasing and a fear of failure every day of my life.

I want to appear like I have my shit together.

But I don’t.

When I read these disapproving comments, it speaks to the lie within me that I really am not enough. That I need to be better, look better, do better…ultimately “pretend” better.

Judgment has a way of making us feel imprisoned as a lesser version of ourselves.

The reason I am writing this post, one that is quite different from my usual fashion and lifestyle posts, is because this isn’t just about me. This is about all of us women.

At the end of the day, don’t we all long to be fully known, flaws and all…and then loved and accepted right there?!

You see, as much as we fight against racism, sexism and bullying in our society, we are acting with the same kind of evil when we cut down our fellow sister.

When my blogger friends are publically ridiculed in vulgar terms about their children’s style, their parenting, their weight, their style choices, their wrinkles and God-given body and facial features, it is nothing short of hateful and wrong.

When my stay-at-home mom friends are shamed for not “doing enough” and my career-driven friends are criticized for over-achieving and working too much, it is hateful and wrong.

When my curvy friends are told they need to lose weight and my lean friends are told they need to bulk up, it is hateful and wrong.

When a woman tells another woman she needs to change ANYTHING about herself in order to be loved and accepted, it so ALL SO WRONG.

Especially in a world already filled with so much hate.

This is for ALL of us women :: the mothers, career builders, nurturers, creators, wives, sisters, daughters, friends. We all struggle. We all look in the mirror and focus on our flaws.

We are all haunted…daily…by the feeling that we aren’t enough. Not thin enough, not rich enough, not popular enough, not fun enough, not smart enough, not brave enough, not successful enough, not sexy enough.

So, if we all struggle with the same feelings, why on earth do we fail so miserably at loving and supporting one another?!

God knows none of us needs any more judgment or criticism than we heap on our own selves,,.so can we stop the hateful comments and negativity?! Can’t we instead start supporting, encouraging, embracing, loving and giving each other grace?

It’s about time we stop the judgment. Stop the gossip. Stop the hate.

We have the power to lessen the load of hate in our society if we start among ourselves.

We have the power to help raise a generation of women supporting women.

It’s about time we start looking at other women in the eye, to attempt to see her for who she is and have compassion on her untold story.

It’s about time we give a little more grace. A little more grace to another than we might give ourselves.

A smile, an unexpected compliment, a helping hand, a gracious response. It can make all the difference.  It might even change someone’s world.

A lot less hate. A lot more love.

When the tide rises, all ships sail.

    Sending you some love friend. You are beautiful and strong and your smile is infectious. We ALL have those days of dropping the ball and letting self-doubt creep in. But what really matters is that is that you’re an amazing mama and you lead by positive example. Keep your gorgeous blonde head up! xo

    Thank you so much for writing this! It’s sad how fast and easily people will say hurtful and degrading things on the internet. Just because someone is a blogger or influencer does not make it okay to say these types of things. We’re all human, dealing with insecurities and trying to do the best we can every day. I am so so sorry this happened to you, I hope this stops at least one more person from cyber attacking another.

    Beautifully written😘 Unfortunately, the gossip and criticism usually comes from insecurity and says way more about the person doing the criticising.
    Thankfully, we are able to have a true identity and security through Jesus.
    I love your vulnerability & how you accentuate the beautiful body God has given you. Beauty is meant to be shared, enjoyed, & celebrated in all of its beautiful unique forms. You are such an inspiration.
    YOU, my dear, are a shining light. Keep letting that light shine💕

    Wow! I was short on time today and was just going to bypass your post but so glad I didn’t ! I am so sorry that happened to you. I can only imagine the pain from those verbal assaults. Shame on those women. But maybe I have said comments (or thought them at the very least), so I now am sitting up a little straighter to not just point the finger at others but to look at myself. How many times have I been watching TV and make a critical comment on the weather girl’s looks/outfit.. Shame on me! Thank you for this very thoughtful post. Again I am so sorry you had the endure this.

    Ok this makes my blood boil. Especially where you say another blogger was writing on there what in the hell we should be uplifting each other instead of tearing each other down. I met you at fashion week and I thought that you were beautiful and you were one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met.

    I love this post! Sharing it now!

    I’m commenting because I have admired your vibrancy and utilized your recommendations without letting you know you’re appreciated. Reading your open post, reminds me not to take encouragement for granted. You are fresh, courageous, devoted, and possess so many admirable characteristics of womanhood. You are beautiful, but your willingness to be vulnerable(which is indicative of strength in character) furthers your relatability & social impact. Let yours be a pleasant fragrance while the foul blatantly stink. While some will not heed the call, indeed, we should maintain the /kind/ in mankind. Press on! go in grace…

Through we exist in a world where we, as bloggers, put ourselves out in the open on a daily basis, that certainly doesn’t mean the cristcism stings any less.

    You are a beautiful and intelligent woman. You balance your job of blogging, styling and everything else I can’t possibly understand because it’s not my area of expertise. You provide an income for your family doing something that you clearly love. You have thousands of followers that tune in to get style help. Myself included. You provide a great service for me a mother of 5 that wants to look stylish but honestly doesn’t have the gift. So you help me and thousand of others "look put together." It is my experience with people who comment negatively to be that of jealousy. Jealous that you are so talented. Jealous that you have more followers and more sponsors. Whatever. Please take their comments with a grain of salt. It just means you have something they want and apparently can’t get. As far as weight, hair color, parenting and children….you are beautifully and fearfully made. He chose you to raise your kids. Keep on doing a great job.

You provide a great service for me a mother of 5 that wants to look stylish but honestly doesn’t have the gift. So you help me and thousand of others "look put together." It is my experience with people who comment negatively to be that of jealousy. Jealous that you are so talented. Jealous that you have more followers and more sponsors. Whatever. Please take their comments with a grain of salt. It just means you have something they want and apparently can’t get. As far as weight, hair color, parenting and children….you are beautifully and fearfully made. He chose you to raise your kids. Keep on doing a great job.

When I first found out about Gomi and the kind of hateful "opinions" that on there and the fact that not even children are off limits…I felt like I was punched in the stomach. Needless to say are gorgeous (can’t believe you carried twins!) strong and oh so brave! Sometimes its best to stay uninformed since only darkness seems to come from this blog. Stay strong & stay in the light babe x

    You are one of my favorite bloggers because you are Authentic! Your style is amazing and I love your instagram pictures and blog because it is style that is trendy, classic yet affordable! I love that you aren’t stick thin because it makes yourelatable to the average blog reader! I can’t relate to you on the looking in the mirror and not liking the weight as I have struggled more than ever with my own weight this year! It’s hard to see so many bloggers commenting "for size reference I’m an XS and size 24 in jeans." The average blog reader probably isn’t that measurement and I love that you are a "normal" size and look AMAZING!!!!! Keep doing your thing and just ignore the haters! It really is sad that so many women has to beat down other women! Just think, those same women posting hate hiding behind their computer screen are just jealous women who are probably raising kids that will sadly be bullies in life because after all they are a bully!

It has been nothing short of incredible watching you chases your dreams and create your brand. You have helped me stay stylish and cute in my 50’s just by following your blog – because I don’t have that talent on my own – I am sure you have done the same for so many others!! On top of that I know that your are a BEAUTIFUL WOMAN OF GOD. Yes, you are stunning, but what really counts is on the inside.

    Your post is honest and straight forward and should gain you more respect in this aspect, but in reality you should just be flattered they thought you were important enough to talk about and keep it moving!!! I think your response was great and yes there should be more love than hate but when you have a following unfortunately you don’t appeal to everyone and you’re not suppose to!!! That’s why there are so many people in the world and you are being the bigger person! You are better than all the negative talk 🙂 glad you took the time to stand up for yourself and be open so many people face things daily that others do not know about in their personal lives and kindness can go a long way! Be true to yourself as you are doing right now!

    Oh Lauren…this is so heart breaking to read. You are such a beautiful person on the outside but even if that wasn’t the case you would still radiate such beauty because of who you are as a person in Christ. Thank you for writing this post and shame on anyone who has anything unkind to say about any woman EVER. We are already so incredibly critical of ourselves…no need for unwanted help in that department. Love you 😘

    Lauren, you are enough! This post hits so many heart strings. All women at one point or another struggle with these very same thoughts. I don’t know you personally but of all the feeds I follow, I look forward to yours the most! It’s real, colorful, and fun! And I imagine that is because it’s a reflection of your own heart. I’m sorry you had to read those terrible words. And I’m sorry for those women that felt like they had to put you down to make themselves feel better. I want my daughter to work hard, be nice, and love others. Thank you for your vulnerability. You are beautiful and have to die for legs!!

    By the way, I was just at Nordstrom buying some of your favs. ❤️

    I have to say that your instastories always make my day, and I really look forward to your NYFW pics each season! It can be so hard to figure out how to translate runway trends to real life, and you make it look so easy and doable.

    Also, who calls blonde hair ‘yellow’???

    I cried when I read this post. You are a really beautiful woman, working and raising 2 children, I look up to you so much. I can’t even believe women can be that mean or at least they still are in 2017. It makes me sick and sad. I dealt with that kind of mean behavior in high school, many many years ago and thought it would get better, not worse. Just remember when others put us down, or shame us, they are dealing with their own insure issues. I don’t understand how women don’t realize we all are better off lifting each other UP not DOWN. We live in a tough world these days and I don’t even know what the answer is anymore. I just know that I am going to continue to spread kindness and love. You have so many of us here that are in your corner, so you keep doing the great job you have been doing. xoxo

    Lauren you are beautiful inside and out…which shows in all you do…and it is the main reason why you were the first blog I started following 8 years ago and why now even though I follow several others and several other bloggers on Instagram…you are still the first one I go to everyday and the one I email or message for true opinions. I love more than anything your honesty and realness that you do have stress like the rest of us, you do gain weight, you do sometimes have good intentions of working out but don’t make it, etc. I could go on and on…please don’t change one bit because of those negative people, and your post is so spot on and beautiful. I can guarantee those negative people are only lashing out because they have SO many insecurities themselves…it is a shame so many believe that making fun of others somehow makes them feel better or makes them think they are perfect. No one is and no one ever will be! Keep doing what you are doing exactly how you are doing it! 😊

    Man oh man, some of those comments are awful, and when I read them, I think that maybe the commenters are struggling with their own insecurities, so they feel the need to cut others down. That being said, I think you are great, and I think your legs are awesome! I too have what some people would refer to as "thick legs", but they are strong and muscular and my favorite thing about me. I think that more people should just stick to the saying "If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all" I am so sorry that you had to see these comments, I think you are doing wonderful things here with this blog. Please keep it up, and know that you are loved!!!

    I too never comment on blogs but I must. At the end of our lives we will never be sorry if we lived out our lives in the priorities our Father laid out. He is the maestro in fact, so His wisdom trumps the worlds ways of navigating through life. He comes first, then family then work, etc… it’s not easy but when we are confused, this clears things up. His creation of you Lauren, is so pleasing to Him and He loves everything about you and especially that great smile. Relish in the reality that He gives us everything for life ( 2 Peter 1) and it goes well when we depend on Him. Don’t fret-mean people only hurt themselves -love is stronger❤️

    I loved reading this blog that was clearly written from your heart. I remember you styling me for my work pics years ago and I still get compliments on them! You were kind and fun to shop with and made me feel beautiful! Those that say and do things to hurt others are likely hurting inside themselves. The best advice I ever received was try to not internalize the hate – because their hate isn’t about you – it’s really their own insecurities and sadness coming through. Keep shining your bright & beautiful light because for every one of those mean comments there are a million nice ones from people who think you are amazing!

    You are amazing inside and out. I pray you can forget about those comments as they are from cowards. It is easy to judge (but that is not our job) and even easier to do it while protected on the internet. At school, we call it cyber bullying. I am so sorry you saw them and even sorrier for those that felt writing those terrible things were worth their precious time. Time is precious. Each day all you can do is your personal best. No one is perfect! The struggle is real daily. Please know reading your blog is a way I relax and brightens my day. Keep doing what you do- you are amazing!

    You are the only fashion blogger I follow. I love the fact that you look very fit and not like you are starving. You have given me so many good style ideas over the years. Don’t change, and don’t measure your self-worth by what a handful of mean, hateful women say. The fact that they took the time to do this shows how very sad their life must be. Keep inspiring us and keep being real!

    I will never understand why people follow someone on social media just to cut them down. It’s ridiculous and sad. Your post was awesome. I hope a lot of people read it and it touches them the way it touched me. I think if we tried putting ourselves in other people’s shoes more often, there would be less judgment. We would probably see that as women, we have more in common than we think. Don’t judge someone because they are probably judging themselves enough already. We need to realize we are good enough. Its great to be a work in prigress because it means you’re trying. Your posts are always so positive and refreshing. Keep doing what you do! More love!

    This makes me so sad to read. Not surprising but sad. People can be so ugly and so quick to judge others. I’ve always believed that those individuals that choose to put down others are just very unhappy with themselves. It’s easier to turn their focus elsewhere. We should be building one another up not tearing others apart. Lauren you are a beautiful Mama with beautiful style and you just keep doing you!! You have a gorgeous smile and quite honestly I love your look and you have AMAZING legs!! Hell I would wear those short dresses too if I had your legs! Easier said than done but let the haters hate girl! You’ve already shown to be better than them. Xoxo

    Excellent post. I’ve always thought you were a "real" and approachable person—and I believe if I said hi at Phipps or Perimeter, you’d be sweet right back. Please don’t let those people saying ugly things hurt you. It is so easy to be snarky behind a keyboard. That’s the downside to social media. It allows the ugly to have a bigger stage than it deserves because of the anonymity provided.
    Keep on, Lauren. I enjoy your account and appreciate all the advice–fashion and otherwise!

    When I look at your pictures I always think "why am I not as perfect as she is?" and "why can’t I fit into the sizes she sells on @shopeditbylauren?

    I’m so sorry! I enjoy reading and seeing all of my instagram blogs that I follow. If I ever even suspect someone is unkind they are immediately unfollowed. One of my favorites has shut down her instagram accounts because of this exact issue. People need to look in the mirror and realize we are all human and have flaws so be kind to one another❣️

One of my favorites has shut down her instagram accounts because of this exact issue. People need to look in the mirror and realize we are all human and have flaws so be kind to one another❣️

    Don’t believe the lies! I’ve never commented before but I actually started following you because I think you’re cute as heck and I love to see your fashion because I think we are about the same size. And girl, you have smoking hot legs!! 😉

    I’m so sorry! No one should be subjected to nasty, hateful comments. What is wrong with people??Didn’t anyone ever tell the haters if they don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all? Sheesh. I do really enjoy your blog and IG. You are beautiful (and stylish) the way you are! Stay strong….and karma’s a bitch.

  • Rdhobie@yahoo.com

    I follow you on IG because I think you are precious! You are perfect and I’m sorry there are haters full of their own hate, turning it around on you. DO NOT CHANGE FOR THEM! You are phenomenal as Maya Angelou put it. After reading this blog post I say to you "you are perfectly imperfect". God made us to be different and if we were all the same how boring would this world be!!??😳 You make my day when I’m having a bad one and I scroll through to an 😍 adorable post of yours. Remember that. Remember that there are more of us out here that you bring HAPPINESS to than there are those who "hate" because they can’t deal with their imperfections. 😘 (Thick legs are the best legs!)

    I’m sorry to learn you have experienced such cruelty, Lauren. Thank you for being so brave and honest with your post. I believe all hatefulness comes from a place of feeling inadequate. It’s just too bad that all of us women with plenty still have so many feelings of not being enough…

    I love your blog and your Instagram posts so much, Lauren! You were one of the first bloggers that I started following on Instagram, and I love your gorgeous style so much! ❤
    Btw, as a working mom, I feel the exact same insecurities that you mentioned above on a constant basis! Nobody is perfect, and we all just do the best that we can 🙂

    You are beautiful. What you wrote was beautiful. Don’t let hateful words cause any self doubt – your blogs are my favorite thing to look at. They give me a break from being a working mother, they give me "me" time, and have given me the ability to try to figure out/put together my early 30’s mom style. Keep your head up!

    Our society right now is just so hateful. It makes me sad for my kids. We do need to stop the hate. There’s plenty of room for all the “bloggers” to play and to play nice. I’m playing around with starting my own blog as a hobby but this snarkiness has crossed my mind. I’m 5’2” and a size 6. That’s “big” in some people’s books and I’m scared to put myself out there.

    I think you’re very cute and fun. I love your bubbly personality and I’m trying to figure out how you do it all with twins! I like your legs! I like that you look like an average woman. It makes me feel like I can pull off some of the looks too because I can relate. Keep doing what you’re doing knowing you inspire way more women than you annoy. ☺️

I couldn’t agree more and I somehow manage to stay off that absurd and honestly pathetic bashing site because the fact that anyone would spend their free time picking someone apart is both insane and sad.

    Hi there, I don’t think I’ve ever commented on your blog before, but I’ve been following you for I think 2 years now. I want to personally thank you for doing what you do. I’m a tomboy, my family and I live on a small hobby farm with wild horses, goats, chickens, turkeys, peacocks, and working dogs. My daily uniform is jeans, a t-shirt, and boots! There is a girl lurking inside though, that loves style, fashion, makeup and getting dressed up. My husband loves when I get ‘dolled up’ as he puts it, and we have some military balls and other special events we attend annually and I always need help with ideas.

    You are one of maybe 3 style bloggers I follow and seriously depend on for inspiration. There are a lot of style bloggers, and many are just not practical for a busy mom; I’m not looking for edgy, trendy, over the top fashion…you have beautiful, classic, practical ideas that I love. Yes some of your hemlines may be shorter, but if I had legs like yours I would rock them too! Instead I rock scrapes and bruises (thank you horses) and require more of a knee length hem and tights. Your legs do not look thick to me, they look very toned, healthy and athletic!

    Have you ever heard the expression ‘What Susy says about Sally, says more about Susy than it does about Sally?’ Whoever wrote those comments about you is doing so from a place of darkness in their heart. Whoever made a blog just to tear others down is the one that is in need of our pity. In contrast, your blog is bright, uplifting, and positive; your intent is to help others. I hope you can find a way to limit how long you’ll allow those words to hurt you, and then put it away somewhere and throw away the key. Please don’t change for them, many people are rooting for you and appreciate you as you are. Please keep being the beautiful person you are!

    Oh Lauren, I am so sad to read the ugly (and completely untrue) things those women said about you. I love your positivity and your open mouth smiles! When did any type of smile become a bad thing?? I know how hurtful those comments are, but you must keep in mind that they are from petty people who don’t really know you. Because if they did, they would be focusing on all of your great qualities!! Personally, I turn my volume up when your Instastories come on because I don’t want to miss anything! Please keep doing what you’re doing because I adore you. You’re the gal for the job!!

    Much love,
