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! Read more

The Cover-Up Change Up

Target-Plus-Size-1


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. 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

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. 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

Weekend Wear

If you haven’t noticed, most of my outfits consist of blue denim jeans. What can I say? It’s an obsession. I love wearing them more than anything. Maybe I should do one of those dress challenges? Anyways, this past weekend I changed it up a little bit and threw on a pair of white denim. You know, cause it’s spring. Baby steps people. I also had a chance to wear this Rachel Pally top I picked up at her recent warehouse sale. Read more

I like to think of myself as a low maintenance kind of person. It doesn’t take much time for me to get ready in the morning. If you follow my blog, then you know I’m a pretty casual kind of girl. It’s just the way I’m wired. It’s never an overthought process. Don’t believe me? Check it out. Come on…get ready with me! Read more

Let’s Play

Igigi-charmaine-jumpsuit-curves-and-chaos-3

As much as I love playsuits, I’m surprised I don’t have more of them. IGIGI sent me this beautiful Charmaine jumpsuit and I’m obsessed with it. When I look at it, I see a blank canvas. One that’s easy to dress up or dress down. Not all plus size jumpsuits are versatile like that. This is one you’ll be able to play in almost anywhere.

When was the last time you went shopping for workout gear? I’ve written about the struggle when it comes to finding plus size active wear. Yeah, it bites. Well, long gone are the days of working out in a t-shirt and sweatpants that weren’t meant for today’s active woman. I was recently introduced to Kohl’s Tek Gear collection and I am officially a fan.

Jennifer Lopez Plus Size

Where are my JLO fans? I know you can’t see me, but I’m raising my hand like crazy right now. If you’re a true fan, then you know she’s not only a multi-talented performer, but she’s also in the fashion game with her own collection available at Kohl’s. I had a chance to try out a few Jennifer Lopez plus size pieces and I only love her more now (if that’s even possible).  Read more

Casually Cool in L.A.

Ideel-plus-sizes-curves-and-chaos-1

In case you’ve been out of the loop, L.A. has been in a little bit of a heat wave. And when that happens, I tend to wear the comfiest thing I can find. Yes, this includes the right pair of denim. I have to stay cool the best way I know how people! Ideel (formelry Ideeli) sent me a few pieces from their new (and improved) plus collection on their web site. And it made the perfect casual look on a blazing Saturday afternoon. Read more
