If you are following me on Instagram, you know that I have been getting things together in preparation for Fall. Even though the temperatures are still high, I can’t help but dabble into some Fall fashion here and there. One of my go-to pieces will be the “moto jacket”. It will literally go with anything in your wardrobe and will be a great way to stay warm while still being stylish. I found this cute white moto jacket on Charlotte Russe’s website and thought it would be a great piece to have. I paired it with some distressed skinny boyfriend jeans and kept it a pretty simple black and white look. Another way that you can style it is with some patterned pants, a white tank top and a colored shoes to complement the look. There are endless possibilities. Whatever you do, be sure to snag your key pieces for the season!

This look is just a breathe of fresh air. It’s light, it’s airy and it’s oh so comfortable. Best of all, it’s still stylish at the same time. I have been loving the neutral color palette for quite some time now and it doesn’t look like its changing anytime soon. There’s something so clean and crisp about this color combination and it can work for any shape and any skin tone. If you are looking for an easy weekend look, this is it. The maxi blouse with slits on each side is really what makes the outfit. It adds a bit of drama without being too overstated. I paired it with white and nude to complete the muted look and added some of my favorite pair of sunglasses for a gold accent. I was ready for a fun filled day!

Though Summer is beginning to wind down, it hasn’t ended yet and I am still rocking my shorts, skirts and dresses for the remainder of the season. With the influx of Fall colors and styles invading clothing stores, it’s easy to abandon Summer fashion in exchange for the new wave of trends but I’m not making that leap quite yet. As I mentioned in a previous post, it’s great to start getting key pieces that will help you transition into Fall but Summer is still in full effect so hang on to your Summer styles a little while longer and enjoy the warm weather.

This printed skirt from Monif C. is a great garment for the season. It actually comes in a set with a matching top that can be worn together or separately. Palm prints were big this year and I love how it comes in a skater skirt style. I wanted to mix and match so I decided to wear it with a black drop top with a front tie and black and white high heel sandals to match. Summer in Los Angeles, personified!

Some brands have a great way of mixing comfort, functionality and style all at affordable prices. One of these brands is Living Doll. Living Doll is a Los Angeles based company that offers a unique, Californian way of dressing. With flowy, loose fitting garments being their signature, you will easily adopt the carefree vibe that their company is known for. They offer an extensive plus size line that follows that same trend and includes garments that are, in my opinion, a bit of 70’s Bohemian inspired. I love garments like these because of how easy it is to create a look. Sometimes, loose fitting garments can have a tendency to make us look larger or look not put together but Living Doll’s fabric and color choices eliminate that worry and offer great solutions for weekend, casual wear. They also offer great versatility as many of the garments can be worn by themselves or with jeans/shorts as I have styled them here. The best news is that you can receive 20% using my promo code: TRENDYCURVY20. Happy shopping!

I just love this color combination. I have seen variations of this color palette for some time now and have been waiting for the chance to get the right garments so that I can create my own look. Although these colors are somewhat subdued, by combining the two, they amplify the outfit and allow them to pop more than they would have on their own. Also, the style of the skirt is very flattering for my figure. I love garments that gather as they tend to smooth things out and create a slimming silhouette (and I’m all about that). With a simple shoe and complementary accessories, your “muted” look will be anything but.

Exciting news to share on this post! If you have been following my blog for a while, you have probably noticed that I am a big fan of Old Navy, particularly their jeans. The fit and quality are great for my curvy frame, mixing comfort and style to be the perfect base for many of my looks. Not to mention, they are very economically priced. In addition to the many different styles that Old Navy already carries, they have decided to launch a new brand of jeans that focuses on the Universal Fit of denim for ALL shapes and sizes. I’ve teamed up with Old Navy to be one of the first to “break in” these jeans (pun intended) and show just how universal the fit is. You may have already seen me in your email as part of a blast that went out this morning but if do not receive Old Navy’s newsletters, no need to fear, I will give you the run down here. The +Universal Fit provides styles from boot cut to skinny that can work with any look. As you can see here, I’ve styled each of these cuts to show just how versatile they can be. With the same quality that we know and love, this denim is truly something that any woman can wear and shows that style is indeed universal. For more information, visit here and check your local Old Navy store!

Even though we are in still in the depths of Summer, many retailers and designers have already begun to transition into Fall. Fall is my absolute favorite season when it comes to fashion but every year, I am surprised at how early Fall styles start popping up. It’s almost like Christmas time. I love the holiday season but when I start to see ornaments and lights on display in October, I panic. I always think to myself, “Can we at least get to Thanksgiving first?” But, like with all season’s transitions, I have to embrace change so with fashion, I am starting to select key pieces that will not only work for the remaining Summer months, but that can also easily transition into Fall.

This duster vest from Charlotte Russe is a perfect example of that. It is made of a lightweight material that allows for a lot of versatility. You can easily put on a turtleneck dress underneath and some booties for Fall or wear it like I have for Summer. Many of the styles at Charlotte Russe are following this same trend and now, you will be able to shop in store! Charlotte Russe is relaunching their plus size line and clothing will be available in 300 stores nationwide. Be sure to check your local store and snag your transition pieces for the upcoming season!
