{What I Wore} Flawless Body Framing

I snagged this awesome dress for $10 from ideel back in January. It fits like a glove but feels like pajamas (my favorite kind of dress) and I love the way it frames the body.

Insta {My Style} Recap - Workout Gear, Shoes & More!

Mother nature has really been a buzz kill for me so while I have so much new in, I haven't had it in me to get out there and shoot so Instagram is always the place where I can share my latest easily, so that's where you will find a lot of my random things, including fashion, food and so much more.

And since it's been a while since my last Insta {My Style} post, I am sharing some new and old things from my insta with more details like where to buy, fit and more.



When I work out, rocking cute gear really gives me an energy boost, so lately I have been reaching for bright colors and patterns.

I am wearing these compression workout capris from Old Navy that I love. I buy these a lot in different colors and lengths. They fit well and I never have to worry about them sliding down or losing their shape. I buy these from the regular Old Navy womens line in a size XXL, regular length. 

The tank top is also from  Old Navy and while I own a lot of tanks from them, this particular one kinda annoyed me because the arm hole dropped so low that you could see my bra. Joe said I should have gotten it in an XL instead of and XXL but I rarely try anything on, so I only found this out once I got to the gym and there was no turning back, so I had Joe tie it in a not at the back of my neck

And I am not wearing an actual workout bra this day and ugh did I pay. I am in the process of buying some new ones because the ones that I own have definitely reached their expiration dates. More on that to come.

The jacket is my current most lived in piece, the faux leather biker jacket first featured in my Rocker Chic Valentine's post.

And I wrote about these wedges in this #PlusSizePick post and because I loved them so much, I purchased them in all three of the colors they came in. You can find them either here or here.

I posted about five really fab floral finds under $25 but that didn't stop my hunt to feed my floral obsession and I came across these super cute floral sneakers (which are currently under $15 and also comes in other cute floral patterns).

I love candles and while I am always in TJMaxx and other stores on the hunt for new ones, I always try to have my all time favorite candle, the Anthroplogie Capri Blue Jar Candle on hand. I have written about it before and while it's not the cheapest candle it smells so good and burns so long, it really is worth the money.

And since I post so much to instagram, I will break this post up, so stay tuned for more... ;)

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Feraglicous Disobey Wedges #PlusSizePick

Today's #PlusSizePick is these gorgeous Fergalicious Disobey Wedge Heels


I wanted a neutral but not plain heel and these wedges are definitely that! They are also crazy comfortable and at under $40, I already ordered them in the black and I am soooo close to ordering them in the poppy color also  {I ordered them!!!}.

I just love this style, with the sexy ankle strap and the cork insert is a unique addition that definitely appeals to my desire to not go plain.

And I know that I will get so much wear out of these, rocking them with everything from dresses to shorts to jeans. And I especially love that while sometimes heels are a problem for me, wedges have always been my friend.

Shop these wedge heels HERE or HERE! (thanks Ashley!)

What say you? Would you rock these wedges?



{Five Fab} Floral Fashion Picks $25 & Under!

Hey Lovelies!

I recently purchased this pretty floral wristlet from Avenue for $10 and it pretty much set me off on the hunt for more bargain floral pieces to add to my wardrobe, and since I know I am not the only one who swoons over a good deal, I am sharing some of my finds with you here.


OMG I Feel Like Dorothy In these {Shoes}

Hey Lovelies!

Because I have found shoe sizing at ASOS to be a little janky at times, I was waiting until I actually received these beauties to post them so that I could comment on the sizing.

The good news: They arrived today and I ordered a size 12 and the fit is good. I normally order either an 11 or 12 in shoes depending on the style/brand.

ASOS Shooting Star Heels

ASOS Shooting Star Heels in Mint | Silver

The bad news: As I was writing this, they were currently sold out in the mint and only had a few silver left but as we know, sometimes really popular items get a second life, so fingers crossed for anyone who wanted these and missed them.

They are so friggin beautiful, I don't know if I should wear them or display them on a shelf!


What say you? Would you rock these shoes?




Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Modamix Collection @ Macy's #PlusSizePick

Hey Lovelies!

I have featured Modamix pieces before on le blog, here and here but I made them the #PlusSizePick of the day because the current pieces on sale at Macy's had me swooning and wanting to snatch them all off the racks.

I took some quick snaps on my phone and I am loving the vibrant colors, patterns, textures and the variety of styles available. I did snag a couple of pieces, so expect to see them here on le blog at some point.

Not everything in store is currently on the website but  this illusion stripe jacket and this gorgeous peachy rose perforated faux leather skirt both are and I love them!

What say you? Have you rocked Modamix?




{Five Fab} Plus Size Must Haves From Lilly Pulitzer x Target #LillyforTarget

Hey Lovelies!

By now you have probably seen it everywhere but are you getting excited that the Lilly Pulitzer x Target collaboration will officially launch April 19th?

As I shared here, while the collection will include plus sizes, they will only be available online. All of that bummery aside, there are some really cute pieces in the collaboration lookbook that was released. Check it out and you can get a feel for how some of the plus size pieces might work for you as they tapped Denise Bidot to rock some of the frocks.

One of the things that I have always liked about the Lilly Pulitzer brand is it's colorful, beachy, chill vibe and they haven't strayed away from that with this collaboration.

As a print and floral lover, I  am digging on a lot of the pieces so this list was hard to narrow down but here are five plus size Lilly Pulitzer x Target collaboration pieces that are on my must haves list.


I am so loving the look of  this kimono jacket ($30). It would totally work at the beach as a cover-up or on the streets over a simple top and shorts or layered over any of the shift dresses like the "My Fans" shift dress ($38) Denise is wearing (I also love that raffia tote bag $30) or the linen shift dress in the "Giraffeeey" print ($38).

Speaking of this "Giraffeeey" print, now if you would have ever asked me if I would wear anything featuring an actual giraffe, I might have given you the side eye but this shift dress is just so adorable to me. Orange is my favorite color and I love the way it looks with the pink and white.

The pattern on this Lilly Pulitzer for Target Plus Size Satin Jumpsuit ($44) is so fun to me. I love that it looks like a lush, elegant forest. And I can not tell you how long I have searched for a cute long kaftan/coverup, so I will definitely be snatching up this one in the "Wavepool" print ($30).

There are 250 pieces in this collection, featuring clothing, jewelry, shoes, home decor and more so of course I have some home decor favorites and you can check them out on Luxaholic.


What say you? Are you loving this collection?

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Kayla Collection Dresses #PlusSizePick

Today's #PlusSizePick is the gorgeous Kayla Collection currently on sale at ideel. This is a brand that is pretty new to me but kudos to them for making really stylish plus size dresses featuring encrusted crystals, peplums, fabulous prints, colorblocking and faux leather.

And speaking of faux leather, I HAD TO HAVE THIS DRESS with the faux leather waistband. It also comes in a peachy/orange and black color that has a really edgy vibe.


Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Floppy Straw Sun Hats #PlusSizePick

Hey Lovelies! 

Yes, for a lot of us here in the states, Miss Spring is taking her sweet time getting here but when she does finally show up, I will so be greeting her with these two fabulous hats to block all the sun she and her girlfriend Summer had better be shining upon us!

I got a glimpse of these two hats out of the side of my eye actually as I was leaving Old Navy after buying some new workout things and sauntered...ok ran over to see if they had my size and ended up snagging the last L/XL in both colors!

WOOT! WOOT!

Old Navy Floopy Straw Sun Hats


If you love hats as much as I do, you NEED these. And if these are anything like the Old Navy felt floppy hats from last Fall, they will sell out FAST, so get them NOW and get an additional 30% off at Old Navy with code THANKYOU through 3/22.

{Fashion} Playing Dress Up With Gwynnie Bee New Arrivals

Hey Lovelies!

I have just returned from New York and while there I spent some time with my fam at Gwynnie Bee playing dress up and there are so many fabulous pieces coming for Spring and Summer!!

Here I am wearing a great peplum mesh top from Pink Clove and an anything but basic black MYNT 1792 skirt that in addition to the zipper you see, has some super sexy short horizontal zippers along the top on one side.

Gwynnie Bee Mynt 1792 Black Zip Skirt Pink Clove Peplum Floral Top

I wore the skirt like this to once again illustrate how great and multi-functional I have found the separates from Gwynnie Bee to be (see before here). So you can rock this look to work and change out (or tuck in and belt) the top and have the perfect look for going out after work.

My {Travel} Uniform | Stylish Sanity Savers #JetSetCurves

Hey Lovelies!

I love traveling but there are of course some things about it that are highly annoying, so I try to do certain things that will make getting to my destination more bearable.

One such thing is definitely wearing some version of my travel uniform which consists of pieces that are comfortable, simple and easy. So when I get to spend time with my friends at TSA {insert smirk} I can get my shoes, jackets, etc off in a flash and hopefully get through without being felt up and having my brand new things confiscated {insert major #sideeye}. And I always need something to cover my head because only the good Lord knows what's been on the seats. And of course my sanity savers, my headphones.

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Striped Slip-On Sneakers #PlusSizePick

I can not tell you how incredibly excited I am that Spring is finally coming. The weather here in Chicago will actually hit the 50's a couple of days this week!!! And while the fact that I am still sick blows, just knowing that warmer days are coming makes me feel better.

And when I saw these Striped Slip-On Sneakers they made me smile because I am addicted to stripes and can never get enough of them in any form or fashion. And the fact that you can currently get them for 40% off only adds to my shopper's delight.

I love them as shown with the white jeans but I would also totally rock them with dresses, skirts, shorts and lots of other colors and pattern combos.

What say you? Would you rock these shoes?

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: 5 Wardrobe Staples From Violeta by Mango #PlusSizePick

This edition of the #PlusSizePick features one of the newer brands offering plus sizes, Violeta by Mango. And since I have been eager to try the brand out, their current up to 70% off sale seemed like the perfect time to do so.

There is a crazy amount of items up for grabs but I wanted to narrow down my selection of featured items to pieces that can easily be integrated into your wardrobe. And honestly doing so was really HARD!!!! I mean there really are A LOT of fab pieces.

If you missed snagging the Lauren Ralph Lauren dress, this red draped waist dress is a great alternative. And this contrast trim skirt can definitely be worn at the office or out to dinner. I chose this chest pocket crepe blouse because it's a classic fabric made a little less stuffy by the pockets, so yes, you can rock it for work but also on the weekend with your favorite jeans. And this cotton suit jacket and cotton suit pants of course come together to make the most basic of wardrobe staples but with a slightly edgier style to them.


Notes: The Violeta by Mango line runs in sizes 8-20 and since this is a newer brand offering plus sizes on top of being a non US brand you will really want to double check the sizing chart to make sure that you are ordering your correct size.

p.s I placed my order a few days ago and I was going to feature the jacket I purchased but it is already sold out, so if you see something you love in your size, you might want to order it ASAP!

What say you? Have you tried this brand?

Shop these picks HERE!

Hey Lovelies!

{What I Wore} Casual Layered Miami Beach Style

When I booked the trip to Miami to celebrate my rugrat's 21st birthday, the weather was predicted to be in the 80's so I planned a casual wardrobe that consisted mainly of simple dresses & seperates.

As with my previous Miami style post, I am wearing pieces from Rebdolls, a two piece crop set to be exact under a split maxi t-shirt dress and my fav new shoes, my white perforated mules from Shoedazzle. (You can check this look out in motion here on my instagram page)
