Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of the Day: Black Gingham Trench Coat

Hey Delights!

Trench coats are such a classic style and I love that I can own the style in so many colors and fabrications. I literally just searched my site and here are all of the trench coats that I have posted. There are even a few that I never posted but as you will witness, the trench coat love around here is real.

My trench coats in: creambright pink, neutral pink yellow long, yellow short, white blue & white stripes, black and white print, bright blue, black, faux leather sleeves, zebra print and cape trench.

Obviously trench coats are one of those pieces that I can never have too many of.  So although it's snowing outside as I write this and Spring is a few weeks away, this is the time to get those select Spring pieces to add to your wardrobe.

And when I saw this black gingham trench from the latest Who What Wear drop at Target, I knew I needed it in my collection.

It also comes in a classic tan color but the gingham version is just so much more fun. And I love that they styled it with the floral print because it shows you that you can really play the print off of others.

There are also some really pretty pieces currently available from Who What Wear and of course all the other brands at Target, and they just dropped their Universal Thread denim line.  So even if you aren't looking for a trench, there is sure to be something that could definitely work as a Spring pop to your wardrobe ohhh and don't forget their clearance section, there are lots of sweaters, etc that you could wear now at pretty good sale prices.

Lastly, there has been conversation regarding the fact that not all of the new items have been dropping in plus sizes at the same time that they have in "regular sizes" and Who What Wear responded on their Instagram stories to this by saying it was a production issue but that everything would eventually be available in plus. And I will be watching this because for one, they should keep their word and two, I want this blazer and and these pants in my size.😊

Have you checked out the latest Who What Wear drop? What are your favorite pieces?

{Fab Five} For the Weekend Vol. 15

Hey Delights!

Welcome to the first Fab Five For the Weekend of 2018! I am so excited for this year. Well I am excited for every single day that I have breath but there is just something different in the air. Something almost magical. And I am just taking it in and not questioning it and rolling with it because I need all the magic I can get. You may have noticed that I have been a little quiet around here. I have been dealing with some personal muck but I actually wrote this post over 2 weeks ago so here it is, a little earlier in the week than normal but here nonetheless.

Oh and the new blog space is dropping on Wordpress as mentioned in my January To Do List. I went with Bluehost as my because so many of my favorite sites use it, so I feel confident that it will be a good fit for my site.

Wear: Although it is still very much winter, we like so many other cities have had almost 60 degree weather in Chicago from time to time this winter. And then a day later we could easily get a bunch of snow. There is no predicting anything with the weather. And because even in the midst of the coldest of coldest days I am liable to be a sweaty mess, the key for me is always to layer, layer...player...

So on one such warmer day, I wore the shut your mouth, I am not here for it N O P E Sweatshirt (featured here) under my always come though faux leather cape.

{What I Wore} Let Them Know...N O P E!

Hey Delights!

I had a very productive day yesterday, which started off visiting the offices of Care.org, an organization that does amazing work around the world with a focus on improving the lives of women and girls. I also met with one of my fab blogger boos to interview her for The Curvacast. So stay tuned for that...it's GOOODDD!

I wore my new favorite piece, this bad ass N O P E. Not today sweatshirt (which is on major sale today) and I am still living in my Universal Standard distressed jeans. I am standing in front of The National Veterans Art Museum's exhibition Above & Beyond at the Harold Washington Library.

{Life} My Word of the Year

Hey Delights!

As I mentioned here, my word of the year found me and it was born out of ending 2017 and starting 2018 sick.

Obviously being sick always sucks but something really beautiful came out of me not being able to talk for a week and countless nights of coughing fit interrupted sleep. When I was awake, I was insanely determined to not let being sick stop me from getting ish done.

And so in the midst of hours at my desk, in between sips of tea & orange juice, sucking on cough drops, cranking away at my to do lists, my word of the year just came to me.
This picture was actually taken on a day I was supposed to run a 5K but ended up limping it because my legs were just not having it that day. I was pretty much one of the last people to finish & they had basically packed everything up when I did but not finishing was never an option for me.
