We’re still in Fall, correct? I mean, the weather outside has been, dare I say, frightful? It seems that winter is upon us, and with it comes this dreadful, freezing, cold weather. It’s cold enough to wear Ugg boots, but we still got a week, or two left to leave our jackets open so people can see the entire outfit. I’m not sure about you guys, but I get hot very quickly. So, for me, it’s almost always okay to leave your jacket open. Unless you have to be outside for an extended period of time, in which case you should probably bundle up and not wear any of the jackets I’m featuring below.Read More »
Guys! Did you know that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday? Probably not and that’s okay but now you know! I don’t just love the holiday for the large amounts of mac and cheese, but because it’s one of the holidays where everyone gathers and it’s not because they got a gift waiting. You see your family in one room, and everyone is extremely happy, laughing, and talking. You always see that one cousin that you don’t really talk to daily but when you get together it’s nothing but good vibes. The home that you go to smells like love and happiness. I just absolutely adore Thanksgiving. So, I thought it would be fitting to discuss Thanksgiving outfits. Now, everyone’s family is different. Some Thanksgiving dinners are super upscale, so you have to wear your absolute best clothing. Some are less upscale and because you live in the host home, you’re probably going to wear pajamas. My family is somewhere in between, we dress nice, but nobody is coming to dinner dripped in diamonds and pearls. We are comfortable classy, which is right up my alley. Read More »
In this episode of “Wearing Clothes That Scare Me”, I will be featuring the bodycon dress. Bodycon dresses leave nothing to be hidden. There is no cover-up for problem areas, you can’t scrunch a certain way to hide things and for me, that is nerve-wracking. My problem area is my tummy, and I try my best to make sure that I am uber comfortable in what I’m wearing. I’m not good with tight things because they bring attention to my stomach and I do not like that. This doesn’t mean that I am not in love with my body (in like, we still working on our relationship) but I’m aware of the things that make me self-conscious and I avoid them like the plague. That’s why buying this dress was such a big deal to me, I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and see what I felt like. Trying it on at home is different than wearing it out in public, so I just had to go for it.Read More »
One of my absolute favorite trends this year is sequins. Who doesn’t love a sparkly outfit or a nice sparkly outfit? Sequins are very versatile and depending on the outfit or the formality of the event sequins can upgrade your look. Literally, there are sequins everywhere and I am just enamored with including sequins in my outfits. I especially like the cool ones that change color when you brush it up or down. If you open any website right now, you’ll see one of two things, plaid/flannel or sequins.Read More »
The leaves on the trees are starting to change colors, it’s getting dark earlier, your car windows are foggy in the morning, you know what that sounds like? Sounds like Fall weather has finally hit us, and I couldn’t be happier! I am not a huge Halloween fan – I did, however, pass out candy this year (Yay, Adulting). But I am a huge Fall weather fan and will not hesitate to tell anyone and everyone. No more sweating while getting ready to go out, or sweating just by standing outside, or sweating just anywhere but the gym. I am looking forward to sitting outside with my fire pit lit and a nice cup of warm wine. I’ll have to say though – my favorite thing about Fall is SWEATERS! There is nothing like putting on your favorite sweater and enjoying the warmth that it gives you. You can dress sweaters up or down, it really doesn’t matter, they are extremely versatile. Sweaters are probably my favorite item of clothing. So, below I have 5 different outfits featuring some of my favorite sweaters from my wardrobe.Read More »
I wanted to come to you guys on a more personal note this week. I know some of you are probably like “girl, where are the clothes”, but I wanted to take a different route. Let’s talk about self-love. Self-love is important to every single person so, this post isn’t geared towards my usual audience, it’s for everyone. I hope by the end of this, you all find ways to progress in your self-love journey. Disclaimer: I’m not writing this post to brag about how great I am at loving myself because, to be honest, I suck at it sometimes. But I enjoy making my blog posts conversation pieces and if I learn something or feel strongly about something then I feel the need to share it with you all.
So, you’ve all seen me do this before! I pick an item of clothing and develop three different looks. This sweater is probably my favorite purchase this season. It’s a gorgeous neutral color and a very pretty shape. Kudos to the Target brand A New Day for always coming with the goodness. The sweater is very soft and creates a sort of “oversized” look, which is absolutely bomb. If you’re like me, you don’t always want something form-fitting. It is also EXTREMELY budget friendly with a price point of only $24.99.
Ladies, have you ever tried shopping in the men’s section? If you’re in a relationship, have you ever stolen his favorite button-down, t-shirt, or how about a hoodie? I know it’s a weird concept to accept but wearing men’s clothing isn’t so bad. I also promise that you will not look weird shopping in the men’s section. I’m sure people assume that you are shopping for any male in your life. They don’t have to know that you’re going to rock that with a cute little waist belt and heels. Let’s be real, women’s clothing is made to accentuate the curves of a woman. Sometimes we do not want to accentuate them, that’s why we have so many hoodies. Recently, loose fashion has become more popular, but in the past, it was more common for women to wear more form-fitted clothing. If a woman had on loose clothing, they would be dubbed a “tom-boy”. Fashion has taken a turn and being a “tom-boy” is becoming more common and fashionable. A perfect example of someone who slays tom-boy fashion is Billie Eilish. She has made dressing like in tom-boyish clothing her modus operandi. Other celebrities include people like Missy Elliot, SZA, and even Rihanna at a time. I guess a better label for the style would be “androgynous” instead of a tomboy.
When I decided I wanted to start blogging it was roughly a year before when I actually started blogging. I had so many stipulations in my mind, which made me stop myself from continuing my dreams. I told myself that the plus-sized blogging market was already so saturated that my opinion or my views wouldn’t really matter. But I decided to start blogging anyway and I am so happy that I did. Because of blogging my life has improved, and I am so much happier with the quality of it.
This week was very exciting for me. One, I got to attend an event that featured some amazing women entrepreneurs. Two, I got to wear my all-time favorite denim purchase. Before I talk about these fantastic pants, I’m going to talk a little bit about the event and its importance.Read More »
