Bump Love. 

So I’m 24 weeks pregnant now. Wow. This one is flying by (thankfully!) and I have now started to show a ton. It was just like overnight, woke up and I was huge! During my first pregnancy I made it very clear that I don’t do maternity labeled clothing. I understand some people have a need to spend an extra $30 for something they can only wear for 4 months, but that’s not me. I bought a BeBand at Target […]

Navy+Classic Cuts= #loveloft

I’ve recently developed an obsession with The Loft (#loveloft). They have a way of dressing the twenty-something with unique patterns and comfortable textures, and their sales are fabulous! I especially adore that each Loft store carries a Petite Shop. Being that I’m 4’10 (technically 4’9.5 but they round up at the DMV) it’s often a struggle to find things in store, without shopping online that fit my frame perfectly. While I’ve gathered several pieces from their current collection, today I […]

Life Changes. Huge News!

I’ve thought a lot recently about what I’m really aspiring to. What are my real goals? When will I actually feel like a grown up instead of someone whose pretending to have it all together while I’m secretly wearing mis-matched socks. This thought process has brought on a wave of change for me, and I’ve started noticing fun details about how my life has changed once I made my true happiness a priority.    I love retail. It’s not often […]

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. I always have and always will LOVE my birthday! It’s a special day just to celebrate the fact that I’m alive! I mean seriously, who wouldn’t get excited about that sort of thing? Anyway, I always love to have special outfits for my birthday weekend. These outfits make me […]
