Disclosure: This post is sponsored by searsStyle. Any and all opinions are my own. My mom has always been a conscious shopper—always. Especially when we were growing up. She’s the ultimate deal hunter. So it was no surprise that she would always shop at places like Sears, for everything from our back-to-school clothes to classic white undershirts for my dad. Seriously, finding what we needed was never a problem. This seems to be the same story today, as searsStyle launches a plus-size line called Simply Emma. The new line features staples like lingerie, tees, and active wear, and trending pieces…
For those of us who love fashion and the art of getting dressed every day, there’s nothing worse than a fashion slump. That moment when you hate everything in your closet and claim to have nothing to wear. Never mind the fact that you have way too many clothes. I’ve been there and I know about half of us are there right now. So, what can we do without spending money? I put together five tips, with the help of my fashionable friends, on how to bring your wardrobe back to life. Take Inventory of Your Closet The first thing…
Sorry, the title of this post is a bad play on Adele’s hit song. I couldn’t help it. “Hola!” is written across my chest and I do kind of love her. I’m waiting for her to be my best friend by the way. Just putting it out there. Anyways…I’m so easily distracted. Saying hello is one of the easiest ways to start communicating with others. No matter how much technology and social media changes, there’s always time to say hello. Just look at this cute Hola T-shirt Mixed Up Clothing sent me. The minute I saw it, I knew I had to have…
We may be consumed with Christmas, but it’s still technically fall—and I’m definitely feeling it! Living in Los Angeles, you never really get a true fall season. But, I feel like the weather has already been different. So much, that it’s OK to pull out the wraps, tights, and ankle booties. All in my favorite fall colors of course! The minute I saw this wrap from Lane Bryant (similar), I had to buy it. Not only did I love the colors, but t’s so warm and comfy. And it made a great partner to this burgundy Forever 21 midi dress (similar).…

By now, we all have a holiday wish list built up in our heads. Most of the time, these are essential items to get us through the year. Then there’s the dream wish list. Right now, Santa is giving me some major side eye. This is the list of things we lust after and don’t really need. But, they would make things a lot more interesting, if we had them. We’ve all been there and I’m going to share mine with you. Here’s my dream holiday wish list vs. my realistic holiday wish list (wish a little help from Kmart.com).
I’m going to be honest, I was never a fan of the faux fur vest. I really wasn’t. That is until I got my hands on one (post coming soon by the way). Just like any accessory, which I consider it, it really is how you style it. And as I was looking online today, I found 20 plus size faux fur vests you just might consider.

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.
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.
If you’re a fan of Target’s AVA & VIV line, like I am, then you’re in luck! I got my hands on the AVA & VIV fall 2015 lookbook featuring bloggers Nicolette, Gabi, and Chastity. As you’ll see in the looks below, the ladies are definitely adding their personal touch to the styling of these pieces.
In a perfect world, getting dressed in the morning would be easy peasy. It would be all about comfort, not caring what people think, and there’s no fear of repeating outfits. Oh wait…that is my world! Last week I got together with a few gorgeous friends of mine and wore this super casual boho-inspired look.

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.

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!

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.
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?
