Athileisure

So there’s this new fashion trend called Athileisure. The concept: athletic attire worn casually and leisurely to places that aren’t the gym. While slightly skeptical at first, I HAD to try out this trend because any excuse for the comfort of spandex pants is at least worth a shot.   The basics of the athileisure trend are incredibly simple and probably items you already have in your closet!¬†You just need 4 basic items and you’ll be rocking the look with […]

Jumpin’ Jumpsuits!

About a week ago, one of my favorite plus size fashion bloggers Farrah Estrella of Estrella Fashion Report¬†posted gorgeous photos of herself in a beautiful jumpsuit. I have always shied away from anything like that because I thought they just “weren’t made for my body”. Being thicker, I have what I call a “pooch” of fat right below my waistline, which means if any article of clothing cuts up through the “pooch” it will split it in two and make […]

Boyfriend Button Downs

I went through a phase through middle and high school where Old Navy ruled my fashion life. I shopped there almost exclusively for a very long time, however when I started my fashion journey in 2007 I started to shy away from the trends of my past, and I left Old Navy behind me. Flash forward to this year, I stepped in one while shopping with my mother and everything was perfect again! I found jeans that fit my awkwardly […]

Rockin’ the Romper.

I’ve only ever owned ONE other romper prior to this one, and I didn’t even purchase it. I wasn’t fond of what I was wearing and a friend let me borrow-and-never-return one from her closet that by the grace of God Almighty somehow fit. I’ve always had an issue with the way they fit my body because I have the hips of a tall person and the stature of Nicole Ritchie. For me rompers either are entirely inappropriately too tight […]

Pattern on PLAID-ern

To say that I love a good pattern-on-pattern look is an understatement to say the least. While lately I have been really enjoying more simple, refined wardrobe choices, I still can’t get over my love of this trend. Today I’m rocking it so super country-chic that to quote Plies “I am feelin’ myself today bruh”. I paired this fun H&M red&navy plaid shirt with my navy and white sunburst skirt from Old Navy. I finished off the country look with […]

Dressing for Surprises! Birthday Weekend Wear Day 3

So, yesterday my mother-in-law took me shopping for a special outfit for my birthday! I love shopping with anyone, but especially people who can be HONEST about what does/doesn’t look good on a persons body! While I’m always honest with everyone because I feel like it’s better for someone to hate me for 5 minutes than to hate themselves for wearing something awful and seeing a picture of it later, some people just aren’t able to exert that kind of […]

Natural Neutrals – Birthday Weekend Wear Day 2

It’s my Birthday Eve today!!! I know as an adult I only get ONE birthDAY a year, but I love to spread out the celebrations with different people, so I really make the memories last, and can spend more one-on-one time with individual people I love! Who needs a big party where you only get to chat with people for 5-10 minutes at a time, when you can have TONS of individual BirthDATES?!?! Today I enjoyed a BirthDATE with my […]

Vintage Sass for Birthday Weekend Day 1!

It’s the start of my birthday weekend! I know I’m getting to that age where you’re “supposed” to be mature and not really care, “just another year older”, but I’m not.

Anyway, I always love to have special outfits for my birthday weekend. These outfits make me […]

I woke up like this…

Cash and I are currently out of town in the Atlanta area for the weekend to hang out with my family up here. I am the worst packer and also not very good at waking up super early, so one of my tricks for getting out the door and getting to your flight stress free and looking fresh, is to prep yourself the night before. I don’t sleep in jeans, but I do prepare my outfit the evening before, and […]

Too short for shorts?

I’ve always been a very short person, I think MAYBE I was of average size in 6th grade, but then I stopped growing completely in 7th at 4’10”. During my awkward adolescence I read some magazine article about how shorter girls will continue to look shorter if they wear shorts, and despite all my fashion expertise, it’s subconsciously stuck with me. I have worn shorts before, don’t get me wrong, I own a few pair for sure, but I’ve never […]
