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

Kohls-Plus-Size-Curves-and-Chaos-1

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

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

Curvy Girl Travels / My Miami Beach Weekend

Curvy-Girl-Travels-5

Can I just rewind myself back into last week? If I did, I’d be right back in that pool, basking in the Miami Beach sun (covered in sunscreen of course). Finally, after weeks of planning, my best friend Mary and eight of her closest friends traveled to Florida for her bachelorette weekend. It was definitely one to remember and I had to choose the photos that I’m going to share with you wisely. Sorry, but some bachelorette moments should just be kept to ourselves. Read more

Bauble Alert / Fringe Necklace

Give me all of the fringe please…fringe necklace that is. I’ve found a new jewelry trend to obsess over. And it just screams “wear me all summer!” It never fails that I’m “researching” online and I stumble across something and it totally distracts me. Just like this trend did! 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

My Personal Style Doesn’t Define Me

curves-and-chaos-personal-style

No, this is not a deja vu. Yes, I’ve written a few times about finding and expressing your personal style. I’ve shared my own tips and even some from my blogger amigas. And no matter what, I always stress the point of wearing what you want and what you love.  But, you should also know that how you dress and what you wear does not define who you are as a person. No matter how many times someone feels the need to remind you. Read more
