Girl, no matter your size, you can find your inner confidence. I know it, I trust it. And while my story is about a former bushy-eyebrowed, unfashionable chubby girl, this is for any girl that may lack in self confidence.
I never thought I’d be a leggings person, but I am totally rockin’ them this year (and most of 2017). Running from playdate to other activities, and sometimes a date night or girls night, I was on the hunt for some great capsule pieces last May.
My number one, ultimate must-have item that is always a staple in my closet: the denim jacket.
I use the because I own more than one, and use them anytime the weather isn’t smoldering (I am in Texas, so maybe 4 months of use!). I have a jean one and a white one, both are cropped to flatter my height. And they make any outfit feel pulled together, which makes it my absolute favorite wardrobe staple.
So I’ve put together some awesome pieces for you, along with helpful tips. Everything below is options in misses and plus, so I’ve got everyone covered! Read More
We all love shopping with our girlfriends. But more often than not, at least for me in this stage in life, stuff just gets in the way. I can’t remember the last time I actually went shopping with friends – if I have even a minute to shop, it is usually last minute and I bask in the alone time after chasing a toddler all day.
So, whether you have plans with your girls this weekend or are just like me in finding a free moment for shopping, I wanted to offer you some tips to help you make the best decisions when you are out shopping!
You know that moment when you weren’t looking for anything in particular and happen upon one of your favorite new pieces ever?!! That’s why I love Target, they make it all possible. Being a plus size girl adds to the cute factor challenge. I take pride in the clothes I buy and how to wear them with confidence.
After being cooped up a few days, we decided to take a last minute Target run with our 2-year-old. It’s been pretty chilly for Texas, so of course we started at Starbucks. The line was crazy, and any mamas out there know lines and toddlers do not mix!
Even though we had a list in hand, I ventured over to the clothes while Mi Amor was busy….<wink, wink!>. And low and behold, the prettiest dress I could have ever imagined was sitting pretty on a sales rack. The size was larger than I normally wear, and there was no stretch to it, but I threw it in the basket anyway. Even BabyCoolJ said “oh, pretty!”
Mi Amor encouraged me to try it on, so I did. I was in shock….this dress fit like a glove. It was made for me, like it had been tailored to my body! It was love at first sight, and a lasting love I am sure!
The top 5 things I love about this dress:
It can be worn year-round (sheer sleeves make it a great option in warm weather!).
It comes in both misses and plus sizes.
The sleeve details are on-trend and beautifully frilly, but the overall style can get away with being timeless.
It’s a “mini dress” so it fits my 5’3 frame perfectly
It’s less than $40!
And really the best part is wearing it year-round. I will love pairing this with my nude peep-toe wedge booties in the spring, and coral strappy heels in the summer. That’s a great wardrobe piece to score!
