Do you ever get so busy or stressed where you are zooming through the days, and you don't even realize how little attention you are giving to yourself or how messy your apartment has become because you have been on the go since 6 a.m. Monday? Well, that was me this past week, and I remember hitting pause for a split second as I stood in the middle of my living room with clothes, shoes, and bags all around me. "I need to chill," I said to myself with a deep breath. So that's what I did. I took my mornings slower and made sure to build in time where I relaxed and enjoyed my favorite things like a cup of coffee with coconut cream, avocado toast with a poached egg, and a new set of lingerie. I've opened up to you all about how I utilize lingerie to bring out the best in myself. Whether I'm wearing sexy pieces under my every day clothes to give me a boost of confidence, or just dressing up for myself and lounging around the apartment to feel sexy and beautiful, I've enjoyed this little self-care practice I've created for myself.

When I am taking a day off to relax, this Wendy Bra and Hipster Panty set in Victorian Rose from Parfait Lingerie gives me the comfort I crave, while making me feel beautiful and indulgent. Sure, I could lounge around in sweatpants, but the clothes I wear totally dictate the mood I'm in. Even though I am just having a lazy day inside, I don't want to feel groggy or unproductive. I want to feel like a goddess who is restoring her divinity. The Wendy Bra is not padded, which I like because it's a nice break from the push up bras I'm used to wearing. It makes me feel naturally beautiful and effortless. I also love the texture on the top of the bra, which also makes an appearance on the panties. This subtle, yet eye-catching touch elevates the set, and I so appreciate it.

It's days like these, where I find time during the madness that is work, events, blogging, and anything else taking up capacity in my life, where I feel perfect. I get to sit back, reflect, and relax—all the while, looking good I might add.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 44D in the Wendy Bra, which is a cup size above the cup size I usually wear, and the bra fits me perfectly. I am wearing a size 3X in the Wendy Panties, which is one size larger than my usual size, and they fit me perfectly. I opted for a looser fitting panty and bra for comfort.
