fourth-of-july-curves-and-chaos-1

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! Read more

The Cover-Up Change Up

Sponsored by Target

Target-Plus-Size-1


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. Read more

Lipspiration

I love a bright and bold red lip. Don’t you? Believe me, I know it’s not for everyone. I just get bummed out when I hear my friends saying that they can’t wear bright lipstick. My response? “YOU CAN wear bold and bright colors!” Yes, you can! This summer is the perfect time to get adventurous. I even created a new Pinterest board to inspire your future lipstick looks. I’ll be updating it often, so make sure to follow that board if you’re on Pinterest. So, which one of these bold shades will you try this summer?

Like Father Like Daughter / Father’s Day Giveaway (Closed)

Sponsored by Kmart

I love my papa with all of my heart. He is such an amazing man, he has a big heart, he’s a hard worker, and he’s unlike any other. No, he’s not perfect and that’s OK. On this Father’s Day, I’m reflecting on our relationship. And it’s so very different today, compared to when I was a kid. We weren’t very close. I guess you can say we didn’t have that typical father and daughter relationship. In fact, it wasn’t until I was in my late teens when that all changed for the better.  Read more

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

10 Favorites / Boho Inspired

I think I’m always and forever going to be in a boho kind of mood. It seems like I’m not the only one. A lot of our favorite designers and brands are also feeling it. My 10 plus size bohemian favorites range in style and price. From a luxurious silk kimono to a linen dress, there really is something for everyone. Are you into the tribal print or more of a crochet kind of chica? Read more

Summer Style My Way

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
