Who doesn’t love a great pair of jeans? Ones that hug you in all the right places, are comfortable and affordable. Well, I’ve teamed up with Fashion to Figure to showcase their selection of stylish jeans for plus size women. I chose 4 styles to wear from skinny jeans to ankle grazers to even jeggings. Each of them have a slightly different fit that can work with different looks and styles. I paired these jeans with some of Fashion to Figure’s apparel and accessories to finish off the look. Overall their jeans are a great choice for everyday wear. They have a good amount of stretch to ensure they fit you comfortably, they have cute details with ripped designs and sequins and best of all, they are all under $50! You certainly can’t be that. Browse through the looks I created below and be sure to click on the links to each of the items I’m wearing after each outfit.

I gather fashion inspiration from just about everywhere. From everyday street style to celebrity looks, if I think I can make it work for my body, I’ll try it. In the case of this outfit, it was inspired by none other than Kim Kardashian. I love how she can take the simplest of garments and pair them in such a way that they look ultra chic and inventive. Regardless of how you feel about her, you have to admit that the girl’s got style. This particular look caught my eye some time back and I have been keeping it in my Rolodex for the right moment. When she wore it, she paired a grey turtleneck bodysuit with a red skirt and matching red shoes. While very basic, it was a combination that I would have never thought to put together myself. Instead of pairing the top with red, I decided to go with blue since I had both the blue skirt and pumps in my closet already. With the addition of a grey chain bag, the look was complete!

Many times, its a fashion faux pas to be too matchy-matchy. When you combine like colors or prints to the tee, traditionally, its not seen as a fashionable thing. However, there are some cases where it totally works and the result is a monochromatic, stylish look. This turtleneck dress and high heel shoes are obviously of the same hue which creates the monochromatic look that I just spoke of. By itself, I think the look would still work but to break up the color match, I decided to add a black, long-line waterfall vest. I love how it adds some a flowy element to an otherwise form fitting ensemble. With a black bag and gold accessories, this look is matching done right.

Silky Hair with Moroccanoil

January 26, 2016

Today I am doing something a little different on the blog. Although I mainly highlight fashion, I wanted to explore some other areas that can enhance your overall look as well. After all, style does not begin and end with fashion but it is the entire presentation. So today we are talking about hair care. I’ve had the privilege of trying out the line of Moroccanoil products and I must say that I am quite impressed. If you are not familiar with this brand, they are the first to have Argan oil-infused beauty. With much of the country experiencing the harshness and dryness of Winter, argan oil can help bring back that luster and shine into your tresses. An added bonus is that their line extends to skincare as well so no matter your hair or skincare woes, Moroccanoil’s extensive range of products can help you through.

My normal hair routine is like many others in that I wash it with shampoo and conditioner, blow dry it and then style it however I see fit whether that be curly or straight. What I decided to do was simply replace my normal products with the Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner and then straighten my hair with the Moroccanoil treatment.

These products are color safe, sulfate, phosphate and paraben free which is so important to the health of your hair. The shampoo & conditioner left my hair feeling very clean from root to tip. It was different type of feel than my other cleansers. After blow drying my hair, this is what I look like. Real attractive, I know, BUT it gets better.

Ok so are you ready for this transformation? Look at the shine and vibrancy that my hair has?! With one pump of the Moroccanoil Treatment, my hair immediately came to life! I normally don’t apply any products before straightening  which leaves stubborn fly-aways that I have just learned to live with. After using the oil, I felt like I has just stepped out of a salon. Not one hair out of place. It was SUCH a difference.

Can you tell that I am in love? In all seriousness, I truly saw a difference in my hair after using these products and I’m excited to try the skincare as well including the Shimmering Body Oil pictured below on the far right. This oil gives you glowing and radiant skin that is nourishing as well. You can see the full line as well as information here.

Roses are red…

Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet and your outfit is cute too! Ok, so I’ve never been good at rhymes but the point is, Valentine’s Day will be here any minute which means that ootd (outfit of the day) shopping is fully underway. No matter what your plans are for Valentine’s Day, you’re going to need that cute and special look for your romantic night out, casual dinner date or drinks with your girls. It’s the perfect day to wear bright pinks and reds that you wouldn’t normally wear and just go all out.

I’ve teamed up with an amazing company called Gwynnie Bee to showcase two looks from their collection for a little Valentine’s Day inspiration. If you have not yet heard of Gwynnie Bee, they are an online women’s clothing subscription service for sizes 10-32. What Gwynnie Bee allows you to do is browse through their entire selection of clothing, choose the items that you love, wear them and then return them whenever you’re done. Is it not every girls dream to have a rotating closet?! That way you can try out new styles or a special occasion dresses and have the luxury of swapping it out for additional items when you have finished wearing them. It’s that simple. Be sure to browse through their selection here and start closeting! Also, check out their blog for my answers to some fun Valentine’s Day questions.

I have been loving fedora hats lately. They are the perfect accessory to top off (pun intended) an outfit. In addition to them being super chic, they are amazing for those bad hair days when you still need to look put together. Not to mention, they can be paired with a plethora of outfits. Semi-casual has been my g0-to style for the past few weeks and today is no different. I styled my camel hat with a crisp, white longline blouse that gave me an easy breezy type of feel. With black denim and some leopard pumps to tie in the camel color, the look was complete. This is an outfit that anyone can put together and look great.

Would you believe me if I told you this look only costs $50? Well, believe it! I am a firm believer that you don’t have to spend tons of money to look fashionable. All you have to do is find the right garments at the right prices to create a seamless look.  Charlotte Russe is a great option for affordable, trendy clothing. I’ve featured them on my blog many times before because their price points totally fit within the way that I shop normally. Of course, we all splurge here and there but it is nice to be able to get key pieces for inexpensive prices. This olive pencil skirt can go from day to night, office to cocktails. I went the semi-casual route but there are endless possibilities. The same goes for the top and shoes that can be worn in a myriad of outfits. Not only is the look affordable but you will be able to create so many different outfits out of just these three things. Economic versatility at its best!
