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.

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.
Before I even get started…I would just like to say how BUMMED I am that I’m not going to be able to attend this awesome event happening in Los Angeles this weekend—Sunday, August 30th! **Cries real tears** But, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out! If you’re in or around the Southern California area, you’re going to want to attend. Some super awesome ladies are cleaning out their closets and it’s all for your benefit. Get all of the info below on the much needed Pop Up Closet Sale & Fall Preview presented by my friend Reah.

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.
It looks like summer’s festival-inspired trends just keep on coming. The latest to catch my attention is also a personal fave—fringe. You may have seen it around the last few weeks. I just had to pull some pieces I found online and share them with you. From clothing to accessories, there’s a little bit of fringe out there for everyone.
Who’s ready to head back to school? I know I’ve considered going back and getting my master’s degree. It’s definitely something that keeps popping into my mind. I always imagine that being a student now, would be a lot different than back then. I’d definitely invest in better supplies. You know…to keep me motivated. Just like these from Kate Spade.
Didn’t I tell you guys I was obsessed with olive? This is my new favorite color, after wearing black of course. It’s such an awesome color that can transition easily from summer to fall. Speaking of summer, it’s been so hot here in L.A. lately, that I have my eye on all things to keep me cool. And this Simply Be olive plus size dress was perfectly perfect on a 90 degree day.
It may only be the middle of summer, but the fashion industry is already in a holiday mood. And today I have a quick sneak peek for you! It’s the Lane Bryant Holiday 2015 lookbook! Complete with clothes, accessories, shoes, active wear, and intimates. I uploaded it to You Tube for you guys and can’t wait to hear what you think.

Oh summer, you are so awesome—when you’re not blazingly blinding me. Actually, I’m kind of happy with the mild weather you’ve given us Angelenos this season. Still, I find myself dealing with a few summer beauty issues. Am I alone here? I doubt it. Thank goodness for these three essential summer beauty fixes I found for my peskiest problems.

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.

Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek), presented by Fit For Me, has come and gone. Just like that. Time flies when you’re having fun in New York City. Seriously, the week just flew by for me. I arrived late Tuesday, after a long travel day. The only thing that kept my spirits up was knowing that the next morning, I would have my first event—the Fit For Me Breakfast.
Today’s bohemian 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 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.
