Tomorrow is Eating Recovery Day, y’all! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, this messaging may be redundant, so I apologize in advance. I’m personally celebrating that eating disorder recovery is 100% possible by wearing my green mental-health-awareness-inspired necklace, as well as select garments like this precious kelly green midi skirt, all month long! In case you didn’t know, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any form of mental illness, and about 30 million people in the United States, both women and men, currently struggle with one. Please do whatever you can to spread awareness (check out my Eating Disorder Awareness board on Pinterest for inspiration), show your support, and give a glimpse of hope to those who are openly struggling or suffering silently from this life-threatening international epidemic. Join us on Twitter to continue the conversation tomorrow, Tuesday May 3rd, from 1-2PM ET with @eatingrecovery, and find out more about my partnership with Eating Recovery Center here. Oh, and as always, keep scrolling to the bottom of this post for full outfit details, too!
One of my all-time favorite pieces of jewelry is my green Elisa pendant necklace from Kendra Scott. I had it made at the Color Bar especially for Mental Health Awareness Month last year, and I rarely take it off. No, green isn’t a neutral shade, so yes, it conspicuously stands out amidst the elements of virtually any outfit, but that’s why it’s special. My journey to eating disorder recovery has made me who I am today, and it’ll always be something I’m proud of.
