Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Double Decker Picnic Sneakers + GIVEAWAY! #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs! 

Happy long 4th of July Weekend!

Aren't these Double Decker Picnic Sneakers the cutest? 

They are a part of a collection of Keds that includes fun prints like this one and also watermelon, lemons and raspberries that are so perfect for all your summer casual fun.


{What I Wore} Red White & Blue Americana Bikini

Hey Fabs!

July always feels like the true start of summer for me. 

Although I have been out of school for a long, long time, a part of me still remembers how great it felt to finally be on summer break. And the fourth of July was always the first big celebration of the season, so it holds a sweet spot in my heart. And to celebrate it we are going to pull out the grill & get our bbq on!

And I wanted to rock something fun that gives a little nod to the holiday and expresses my bikini independence and this awesome vintage americana style bikini definitely does the trick!


Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day:Cap Toe Stripe Slip On Sneakers #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs!

I fell for these cap toe stripe slip on sneakers instantly. Slip on sneakers are one of the most perfect summer shoes and I rock them with everything from shorts to dresses.

I own them in all kinds of prints and textures but this combination of the cap toe and stripes, which are a MAJOR staple in my world made these a MUST have!!

What say you? Are you lovin these sneakers?

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Chain Trim Halter Jumpsuit #PlusSizePick

Hey fabs!

Today's #PlusSizePick is this deliciously orange Style&co Sleeveless Chain Trim Halter Jumpsuit that I purchased the other day. 

Here I am trying it on in the dressing room (which is why you see my bra straps) and while I don't usually go for wide legs often, they totally work with this jumpsuit's soft, flow-y vibe.

Orange is such a great color and although it is definitely in my top two as far as faves goes, I don't wear it nearly enough. Gotta work on that ;)

Here are a few similar options that I found online.

What say you? Are you lovin' this jumpsuit?

{What I Wore} Working My Gwynnie Bee Closet: Embossed Floral + Fringe

Hey Fabs!

It's no secret that I am a HUGE Gwynnie Bee fan and love working the pieces into my wardrobe.  I have styled several pieces from my current GB closet and this is the first of a series of posts that will feature outfits, an interview on some of the the behind the scenes workings of the brand, including answers to questions I get from people ALL THE TIME and finally a fabulous GIVEAWAY!

This Melissa Masse Embossed Roses dress is gorgeous on it's own but I am me, so of course I wanted to add a funky edge to it and my faux leather fringe belt is the perfect piece to do that with.

And my floral block heel pumps from Shoedazzle added just the right amount of color to the mix. Peep how I rocked them last time, here.

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Chevron Midi Skirt #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs!

Today's #PlusSizePick from Rebdolls is a fun take on the chevron pattern and a great midi length so its sure to be a skirt that you will reach for time after time.

And it has POCKETS! Triple WIN!

What say you? Are you lovin' on this skirt?

{What I Wore} The Floral & Jumpsuit Obsession Continues!

Hey Fabs!

I have been living in two things as the weather has warmed up, florals and jumpsuits, so this purple rose pint Pink Clove jumpsuit I snagged from ASOS Curve last month was a no brainer.

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Lauren Ralph Lauren Plus Size Double-Breasted Trench Coat #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs!

I love my trench coats and own them in lots of colors, prints and patterns, so this year I was on the hunt for a new one that was unlike any of my others and this bright pink Lauren Ralph Lauren Plus Size Double-Breasted Trench Coat fit the bill.

Lauren Ralph Lauren Plus Size Double-Breasted Trench Coat

I had been stalking it for weeks waiting for it to go on sale and decided to bite on it yesterday.

Note: I got mine at Macy's in store and the price is cheaper than it currently is online and it is also currently available online at Ralph Lauren, Lord & Taylor & Nordstrom in other colors like black, blue and a traditional khaki.
What say you? Would you rock this trench?

{Review} I Sweat, I Stretched in The Just Curves ONEder Suit

Hey Fabs!

{note: I just upgraded my blog to a new template YESTERDAY & it auto expands everything, so the video is looking wonky but I am currently uploading it to youtube, which will hopefully allow me to fix this}

Just Curves is truly a brand hat we have been waiting for. You know clothes in general can be a struggle for we women with a little (or a lot) extra here and there & finding active wear that fits and SUPPORTS YOU so that you can just workout without worrying about showing too much or falling out of your pants or shirt, is double the struggle.

So how awesome is it that we are presented with an opportunity to support a brand created by a woman who understands us? Just Curves offers active wear in sizes 10-28 and the Kickstarter fundraiser that will fund its' production ends May 11 and it would be so great if you get behind it, share it and support it! 

As I mentioned in my interview post featuring the creator of Just Curves Active Wear, I have been rocking the ONEder Suit during my workouts and am totally in love with it.

Ok, let's start with the fit. 

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Ribbed Band Jumpsuit #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs!

My jumpsuit obsession continues and today's #PlusSizePick, this fabulous Ribbed Band Jumpsuit, I purchased this last week and it arrived yesterday and I am so IN LOVE with it.

It also comes in a cute heather grey which I ordered after trying on the black one because for one, it costs $20 and two, it is just really a perfect get up, throw on and go piece.

What say you? Are you lovin' on jumpsuits?

Size note: I ordered this in a 2x and the fit is nice and relaxed. 
My measurements (give or take an inch or so, I need to get an update)

Size 18/20 or 1x 2x depending on style/brand/cut


Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Animal Print Lace Inset NightGown #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs!

Although I sleep in the buff (TMI?? LOL) I love lounging around the house in pretty things and today's #PlusSizePick, this Animal Print Lace Inset Night Gown is such a pretty take on animal print.

What say you? Are you lovin' on this night gown?

{What I Wore} Florals & Leather!

It's definitely already established that I LOVE prints & faux leather, so it is of course no surprise that I try to combine them in lots of ways, like in my floral pumps and faux leather fringe look and now this one. It's my favorite tender and tough combination.

 Strappy Pumps (a steal at under $13)


Just Curves: The Activewear We Have Been Waiting For!

Hey Fabs!

I was introduced to this new curvy girl active wear brand Just Curves via a member of one of my FB groups and I am crazy excited about it! Just Curves is an active wear brand for women from sizes 10-28 that is all about being fashionable but also comfortable & supported while you get your workout on.

Check out my review of the ONEder Suit HERE!

I immediately went to the Kickstarter campaign that the brand has launched to sign up to support it and had to get to know the woman behind the brand because she is obviously my soul sister and knows my woes.

I was sent the mesh version of the ONEder Suit (rocking it here), which I will review on another post but I have already worked out in it several times and ladies I LOVE IT!

More on that to come but first, I got a chance to chat with the lady behind the brand, Yolanda
Williams and here is some of our conversation.


Jaye: Good Morning Yolanda!


{What I Wore} Sleeveless Printed Jumpsuit + Faux Leather

I have had this previous #PlusSizePick, the Sleeveless Printed Modamix jumpsuit for months & it has been in heavy rotation because it's so comfortable but I finally got a chance to snap pics of it.

{What I Wore} Maxi Stripes + A Pop of Color!

Mother Nature hasn't exactly been cooperating so I went to one of my favorite places to visit & shoot, the Garfield Park Conservatory. They have this really awesome umbrella installation for their Spring Flower Show and it just makes an already incredible place even more fab. If you are in Chicago, it is a must visit.

When I go to the Conservatory, I like to get a few looks in, so I shot this look, the body framing snakeskin detail dress and a fabulous jumpsuit look.

Anyway, this Ava & Viv Sleepless Striped Maxi Dress is pretty sweet.

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Striped & Polka Dot Satchel #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs!

What? Could it be true? Is Spring Actually Finally Here? It's been a long time coming but dare I say that yes, the air has definitely been feeling more like Spring! And your girl is happy for it.

Anyway, today's #PlusSizePick, this Aldo Satchel was inspired by Spring and two of my favorite prints, stripes and polka dots! It's such a fun way to mix the two and I always love a good satchel.

I am also totally in love with this matching stripe and polka dot wallet.

What say you? Would you rock this bag?

{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.
