The decision to get dressed up for Halloween shouldn’t be a difficult one. When asked, the answer should always be “Yes!” I mean, why not? There’s no reason we should miss out on the fun. Did you know, according to Kmart, more than 67% of American’s believe that Halloween isn’t just for kids? And this year it lands on a Saturday—that’s even more reason to dress up and join the spookiness!
I was completely honored when Lane Bryant asked me to co-host their #CombatCancer event with the American Cancer Society. I couldn’t say “YES” fast enough. Hosting this event has inspired me to do more, including raise money for the American Cancer Society by walking in the Making Strides Los Angeles walk for breast cancer. I made sure to recap this special event, because it meant so much to me to be a part of this day.
Ask anyone who knows me…I’m kind of obsessed with fall and all that goes along with it. Like…scarves. Yes, I might have a scarf addiction. But, we’re not here to just talk about that. Let’s chat about dressing for fall period. Even though it’s still really warm here in Los Angeles, I do have my favorite season on the brain. I partnered with Kohl’s again to show you what fall plus size fashion I consider my must-haves.
As a Shopbop partner, I know they’ll have that must-have item I didn’t think I’d need. And I’m always patiently waiting for their next sale. Well, their Friends & Family Event is finally here! I’ve said it before, these sales don’t happen very often. So, when they do, you must take advantage of them. Especially, if you’re a designer kind of shopper. Now is your time to take advantage of 25% off your order with code INTHEFAM25.
We live in a world where fashion trends rule. I on the other hand, live in a world where I wear whatever I like and what I want. And for me, it’s all about comfort. You guys should already know that about me. I swear, on this recent trip to NYC, I was all about my relaxed boho look. You couldn’t put me in something restricting if you tried.
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. I already see a lot of favorites…like faux fur, metallics, and boots! What are you eyeing?
Where are all of my beauty lovers at? I’m not talking about just loving beauty, but I mean like beauty obsessed. Like, you watch YouTube makeup tutorials and beauty hauls religiously. And you can name 5 beauty gurus right now off the top of your head. Yeah, I’m definitely talking to you. You are the perfect candidate for BeautyCon.
