{What I Wore} Melissa McCarthy Seven 7 Colorblock Chambray Dress

Denim is everywhere and I am LOVIN' it! This Melissa McCarthy Seven 7 Colorblock Chambray Dress from my Gwynnie Bee closet is the definition of how I like to dress...cute, simple and easy.

I paired it with an eloquii belt that I have had forever (I love this laser cut version) and my striped espadrilles (similar style). My bracelet is a gorgeous festival find and of course I am rockin my Fitbit Surge, which is almost $100 less than what I paid for it here.


{Lifestyle} A New, Convenient Way To Thrive At The Market

Hey Lovelies!

As mentioned in my The Purple Carrot meal delivery service post months back, when it comes to food & shopping, convenience rules in my world and I love being able to use services that make my life easier.

So when I came across Thrive Market, which is being billed as the online Whole Foods, without the whole paycheck prices, my interest was definitely stoked.

Partly because of the convenience factor of being able to order groceries online and also because they are a socially conscious online marketplace that offers natural and organic products BELOW retail prices,

But the biggest reason why is how they have built giving back into their business model. For every membership that is purchased, a membership will be given to a low income family. And they have also recently petitioned the USDA to allow food stamp recipients to be able to use their benefits online.

And that thrills me because I have experienced neighborhoods first hand, right here in big ol' Chicago that are complete and total food deserts.  I will never forget rushing my kid to her grandmother's house before work once and having to wait until 9am for Walgreens to open, only to find that the location did not have the formula that I needed. It was so frustrating.

So I feel having access to quality products that can be delivered to your home no matter where you live, is HUGE.

Healthier Food and Living Products From Thrive Market

And with over 3,000 products from 400+ brands that sell are top of the line, non-GMO, organic, vegan, raw, Paleo, gluten-free, and non-toxic items I think there is something for everyone.


{Fashion} Pick of The Day: Stylish $12 Sunglasses

Hey Fabs!

If you have followed me for any amount of time, then you know I am a girl who LOVES her some sunglasses.  And because my love runs as deep as it does & I am a bargain hunting queen, I am always on the hunt for cool, cheap pairs.

Now don't get me wrong, I used to love some of the more expensive brands back in the day but all it took was one day when I stepped on my first and only pair of $250 glasses that I vowed to never subject myself to that kind of purchase pain ever again.

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Boho Chic & Summer Perfect Hemant & Nandita

Hey Fabs!

I was going thru my email this morning and saw these super cute, crazy fun Hemant & Nandita pieces created exclusively for Gwynnie Bee and INSTANTLY went to closet them ALL!

Hemant & Nandita is a design duo from India who has designs featured in traditionally not plus size stores like Anthropologie, Revolve and other higher end shops around the world, who believes that their designs:
"beautifully manifest the richness and opulence of Indian tradition balanced with contemporary styles"
And I could not agree more. The prints in this collection and their laid back style is so perfectly boho chic, vibrant and colorful.

They just feel like Summer..
