Megan te Boekhorst, Toronto

Hi. I'm Megan.

I brought my West Coast soul to the city of Toronto in order to build the creative empire of my dreams. Never one to take the traditional route, I've lived life on my own terms since 1991. Currently working in Public Relations while rocking the side hustle lifestyle that brings me unstoppable passion. 

In A Sequoia is for those who own being a bad ass, vulnerable bitch. A source of inspiration for creating intention. Be unapologetically true to yourself. Live #thesequoialife.

I'm going to be super honest. Summer plus-sized fashion causes me stress. This summer has been no exception. In fact, I've been more stressed than usual with my new job. Previous summer gigs have included: leading a summer program for young children, an internship at luluelmon athletica, and working in a paint shop. Comfort has been key in all of these roles. Now I'm in a downtown Toronto office with an actual dress code. I honestly did not know how to dress for that. 

The first problem is finding something that comfortably fits my chest without being too cleavage-y. Then there's the butt problem - ensuring whatever I wear covers the booty I've been blessed with. Plus, seeing as though I walk anywhere and everywhere, the chaffing is real. 

As I've explored the options I feel comfortable and confident in, this palm-leaf dress has risen to the top. It's bright and fun, has a flattering cut, and gives me the coverage I aim for while not making me burst into a hot flame. 

This dress is the definition of summer for me. Tropical, comfortable and cute.
