Red, White and Blue Picks to Shop Now


Fourth of July weekend is in like 10 days so I thought it was the perfect time to round up some red, white and blue picks. By now you guys know I'm into thematic dressing, being that style is a big part of my life it's my way of celebrating.

Need outfit inspiration check out last year's Fourth-themed look Here
If I had to pick one item though it would be this Eliza J Off Shoulder Maxi its actually in my cart and its one of those situations where my mind is telling me no but but my body is telling me yesssssssssss 


  Do you find yourself wearing red, white or blue around the fourth or is it a bit too cliche for your style?

3 Summer Outfits To Try This Week


Summer is literally here and I've been loving rocking some of my summer go-tos but because we've had bipolar weather lately, I thought I would share three outfits that you can rock no matter what your weathers like.
So what demarcates spring from summer I guess shedding most of our leftover layers from winter. Summer can be a precarious time when your plus size for many reasons, body image, and hygiene issues (see Hacks Video) to name a few. During the summer I tend to gravitate towards Lightweight cotton, non-clingy silhouettes, pieces with intentionally place cut outs and basics.

My style on the blog has gotten pretty casual as of late, pretty true to my style actually,  after blogging for five years (Happy Blogiversary we turned five this month) I've come to a point where I don't feel the need to do the most with my looks (be ultra glam all the time). I want to showcase more how my personal style works in tandem with my lifestyle, I hope that's ok with you.


For this look, I paired my Embroidered Duster from Boohoo with a tank, my Kut from the Kloth jeans that I received via Dia & Co (find out about more Here), my Fur slides which are comfortable but make a statement and finally a Target Ring tote that I realized I've worn in the last two posts πŸ™πŸΎ . This look is very now (silk dusters and robes are trending) but also perfect for cool summer nights/day because the duster is light enough to layer with on a typical summers night. If worn during the day and the heat becomes unbearable it can easily be discarded.

Tip: During summers months Fabric selection is key especially when your plus size, gravitate towards loose, airy, natural and breathable fabrics like cotton, paper thin silks, and linen to minimize hygiene issues.

How do you transition your wardrobe? What are your top summer essentials

Top Fathers Day Gifts He Will Love

Imagine my surprise when I realized Fathers day was literally around the corner. Today I'm sharing my top Fathers Day Gift Ideas, please refrain from getting dad or the boo socks. Unless he, of course, is a collector of rare socks and ties πŸ˜‚. Speaking of ties & socks I love these boxes/sets from the Tie Bar.

What's the best gift You've given on Fathers Day?

As always my gifting advice is simply to tailor your gifts to the person by figuring out what they love or need but perhaps wouldn't think to buy for themselves. Is Dad a master griller? He just might need a Portable Fold-Up Bbq Grill.  Does he love a certain sport? Is it out doors? He might need a Portable Picnic Table Set. Is your boo all about his swag/style he might love these sneakers by Comme des GarΓ§ons X Converse. Is he your Baetographer? then he will definitely appreciate a DJI Phantom Drone .If all else fails and this for the significant other (especially the ones with children) He def needs, wants, has to have, can't do without ___________πŸ˜‚πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‰
