Covering It Up

I don’t know about you, but I’m counting down the days until I get to lounge in the sand on the beach. Doesn’t it sound relaxing? But, what do you wear when you aren’t in the water or laying out getting a tan? You can walk around in your swim suit, but I want to look cute and still protect my skin. That’s when I grab a cover-up. There are tons of styles, colors, and prints to compliment you and your swim suit. Which one below do you like? Click on the style you like for pricing details.

You can always find some of the best plus size womenswear from SimplyBe. Last year I did a review on a few of their pieces and I was very impressed with not only the quality, but the fit. Let’s just say I visit their site weekly. Today I clicked on their site and I immediately wanted to bust out the sunscreen and go somewhere tropical.

Last Minute Summer Wish List

I know summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean I can’t keep looking for that chic summer dress! These dresses are from Saks Fifth Avenue’s Salon Z department…so they are probably going to remain on my wish list due to budget restraints. That’s OK…a curvy girl can still look, can’t she?

Style Trend: Summer Scarves

Accessories are an essential piece to any outfit. One of my favorite accessories is the multi-use scarf. Love it in all materials! This week alone I bought 2 scarves! And as I was perusing my fave blogs, I came across a few outfit posts where they accessorized with a scarf. Yes, I know it’s summer, but you can still wear them! Just make sure to stay away from the heavy materials like 100% pure wool and cashmere. I tend to lean towards the silk, cotton, and linen. FYI…I want these!I love thrifting scarves too! They are really inexpensive and can…

Cover It Up!

Summer…Summer time!! Ok…I’m not going to get into that Wil Smith song, but I am more excited than usual in this hot weather. I am writing this post before I head to the pool and I’m staring at my ugly old cover-up. It has come in handy, but I think it’s time to move on and I’ve found a few replacements.

Color Inspired: Blue & Green

Plus Dresses by Forever 21Sandals by Vanessa BrunoNow that it’s finally warming up here in L.A., I can’t wait to go to the beach. I guess my trip to the pool yesterday inspired me to pair these two colors of blue and green together. It definitely reminds me of water and the tan I started working on yesterday.

Is it HOT in here?

Summer has officially started and if you don’t believe me, just check your calendar. The 4th of July weekend is only a few days away! You know what that means…SALES! And you can’t forget the most important factor…the heat. The blazing sun is so unforgiving!Interestingly enough, I think my hubby will really love this summer.

I’ve never been so comfortable with my body and I am on a mission to make this…
