When the summer season hits, so do the bright colors. Now, you guys should know by now that I love wearing black. That’s no surprise. I also love adding pops of color to my outfit and right now it’s all about my favorite shade of green—olive! It’s not too bright and it’s not too dark, making it the perfect new neutral. In this latest outfit post, with the help of pieces from Target’s Ava & Viv collection, I’m going to show you how effortlessly I mixed this color into these two looks.

2015 Full Figured Fashion Week Retailer/Boutique Showcase

Sponsored by Fit For Me


The New York City whirlwind that is Full Figured Fashion Week ended just as I imagined it would—an evening bursting with plus size fashion on the runway. On this night retailers and boutiques had a chance to show us their latest and favorite styles. And we even had a performance from The Glamazons. A big thank you to Fit For Me, the premier sponsor, for having me as one of their blogger ambassadors! I had a seat in the front row with an amazing view of the runway.

Whenever the Fourth of July rolls around, I make sure I’m prepared on all levels. For me, it’s more than BBQ’s and fireworks. This includes buying myself a red, white, and blue inspired outfit. Yes, I’m one of those patriotic chicks. Hello! I am a proud United States Air Force veteran. I love to show off my Independence Day spirit!

I love to write posts that I hope will inspire and encourage you to love yourself, especially on the outside. Believe me, I know it’s not easy. It’s a journey I’m still working on. And it doesn’t seem to get any easier whenever swimsuit season rolls around. The minute we hear the words “swimsuit shopping” we cringe.

Gypsy Spirit

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.

Summer hasn’t even officially started, but that hasn’t stopped me from making sure I have what I’ll need on the hottest days in L.A. I feel like everyone has their own summer uniform and fashion favorites. Since, I’m all about being comfortable in any weather, I’m especially concerned about it when it’s hot out. That’s why my summer style has to have this one essential—the maxi dress.

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.
