How I’d Style Flare Jeans

If you follow me on social media, then you know that I was recently in New York. I was invited out by Lane Bryant for a blogger discussion. More on that to come later. But, during this meeting I had a chance to sit at a table with LB President and CEO Linda Heasley. We talked about a lot of things, including a discussion about styling flare jeans. Funny thing was, I actually had a post drafted before I left for this trip. This was just a sign that I had to follow through and write about the latest denim trend. Read more

There are a lot of words out there to describe who I am as a person—inside and out. I try not to get caught up in labels, but I sometimes feel like it’s necessary. Especially, when they can help motivate, inspire, or empower others. That’s why I’m so excited and very proud to work with Simply Be on their latest campaign—#SimplyBeYourself. Read more

Junior Plus / Back to School with Kmart & Giveaway (Closed)

This post is sponsored by Kmart.

Recently Updated231

I miss being a kid. Going back to school was always so much fun. Well…mostly because I got to wear my new clothes, carry my cute lunchbox, and stuff my backpack with all kinds of cool accessories. You know, all that comes along with the first day of school. Ahhhhh…the good old days. I still feel like today’s fashion for kid’s and teens is so much cooler than when I was growing up. I was taking a look at the Kmart Back to School page and they have the cutest stuff. Read more

Gypsy Spirit

curves-and-chaos-2

Today’s gypsy is known as a free-spirit. Often roaming and traveling the world. Ever since I was a little babe, I’ve always felt I had that gypsy spirit. From my love of traveling and never really wanting to settle, to my ever changing—yet flowy style. And when I was putting together this latest look, the spirit was definitely there inspiring me. Read more

Style Trend / Longline

It looks like minimalism is going strong with the longline trend. Yes, the name pretty much describes it all—long pieces and clean lines. As you’ll see below. You may have noticed this trend started in 2014 with menswear and only a few pieces for women. But, it really has caught my attention this spring and into summer. My friend Rachel is rocking it here. Of course, I found some amazing plus size longline pieces below. From vests to tops, which one is your favorite? Read more

Turning Swimsuit Anxiety into Swimsuit Happiness

This post is sponsored by Target.

Oh…swimsuit anxiety. You’re an evil one. Even the most confident women (ahem) get that uneasy feeling when they think of summer and the fact that swimsuit season is practically here. There’s just something that goes off in your head when you know you’re about to parade around others half naked in the bright summer sun. OK, that’s just how it goes in my head. Read more

I Got It From My Mama

I talk to my mom on the phone almost every day. I can honestly say, each conversation takes on a life of it’s own. We don’t always agree on things and we will sometimes butt heads. I love her beyond words, but man we are so much alike it’s scary. It seems like every time I open my mouth, I say something and I sound just like her. In fact, I think I might actually be turning into her.  Read more

Celebrating 5 Years My Way! (Closed)

Igigi-Curves-and-Chaos-3

Curves and Chaos is officially 5 (insert confetti, champagne, and balloons here)! 2010 seems just like yesterday. Doesn’t it? I want to say time flies when you’re having fun, but I don’t think that phrase will work here. This Curves and Chaos journey has been so much more than “fun.” If you would’ve told me then, what I know today—I would have never believed you.
