Cozy Up

November 5, 2019

We are officially in November! Can you believe that? This year has flown by and I can’t even wrap my head around the fact that we are in the last two months of the year. Although this signifies the end of one chapter, it is still my favorite time of the year. The weather is brisk, the home cooked meals are stewing and the holiday season is in the air!

So of course, one of the main garments that I’m reaching for is a nice, comfy sweater. This one from Loft is so soft that you just want to wrap yourself in it all day long. As you all know, Loft is one of my favorite brands, especially when it comes to denim. They do casual basics so well and they are pieces that you can wear season after season. 

Although minimal, I love the beige color of the sweater that I’ve matched with the layered tank top. It’s muted but still looks chic. There are several must-haves that you need in your wardrobe that include a great pair of skinny jeans, and LBD, etc. But what’s sometimes overlooked is a versatile sweater. Because it’s a blank canvas, you can wear it with just about anything. Jeans, skirts, dresses, booties or heels – it all works!

Head over to Loft to check out all of their new arrivals, including their selection is sweaters!

Fall Back

November 3, 2019

Did everyone enjoy that extra hour of sleep that we got?! This time of year is always bitter sweet for me. Extra sleep is always appreciated but that does come with shorter days, which is not the most fun. It also signifies us inching closer towards the end of the year. Where has the time gone?!

So, with this year nearing a close, the weather is finally starting to resemble the Fall season. Los Angeles never really experiences true seasons, however, it does get brisk and cool (for LA standards of course). When that happens, I reach for great, comfortable and easy garments like this look from HauteLook!

I’ve been fortunate enough to partner with Nordstrom Rack | HauteLook for quite some time and they are literally one of my favorite retailers to work with. I love showcasing their great styles at even better prices that I can share with you all. Today is no different. This sweater along with many other items are a part of HauteLook’s flash event that offers the perfect Fall styles. Check out some of my favorites below as well as the outfit details below!

The weather is finally getting brisk here in Los Angeles! After having some record highs for this time of year, the temperatures dropped pretty significantly, just enough to make it actually feel like Fall. That means that it’s officially time to break out the sweaters and the booties. Luckily, there are so many cute styles to choose from, including these garments that I picked up from Nordstrom.

I’ve said this before on social media but I really appreciate the efforts that Nordstrom is making to be more size-inclusive. It’s evident when you browse their selection online as well as in-store. You will see that some brands offer a full range of sizing, starting at an XS all the way up to a 4x! Leith, BP., Halogen, BB Dakota (just to name a few), are among my favorite brands.

So, this look that I just love is brought to you by some of my favorite brands at Nordstrom. This is my Fall go-to! I love the chic casual aesthetic that is the perfect blend of comfy & cute. Statement booties are a must-have for the season and what better way to make a statement than with leopard print. Paired with a duster cardigan and oh-so comfortable black denim, I was Fall ready!

New Brand: Ryllace!

October 29, 2019

One of the most exciting things about blogging in the plus size space is that new brands are always emerging. Whether it’s a brand that we have all known that is now expanding into plus size or a completely new company altogether, I have the privilege of getting the inside scoop. And of course, the first thing that I do is tell you all about it because new places to shop is always a good thing. So today I’m happy to introduce you to a new luxury plus size brand called Ryllace.

Ryllace is a brand that ranges from a size 14 to 24. They really pride themselves on offering quality fabrics that fit perfectly. I had the pleasure of styling their cashmere cocoon sweater, three ways as you see in this post. I really wanted to showcase the versatility of this garment because it can be worn so many different ways. You can never go wrong with a sleek LBD and this one from the brand paired perfectly with the light grey of the sweater. With some added accessories, this look is ready for a fun dinner date.

This second look is what I liked to call “weekend chic”. A great pair of jeans is a wardrobe must-have, especially during this time of the year. Combining this denim with the cocoon sweater was a no-brainer and it really amplifies casual style.

Lastly, this third look is the brunch with friends look. It’s colorful, comfortable and cozy – the three “c” adjectives that I love the most. Adding a pop of color is just what you need while sipping on mimosas and catching up with your girls.

If you have never felt 100% cashmere, you are missing out one of the softest, comfiest materials on earth. And while cashmere is considered a premium material that puts it in the luxury price category, it is always great to have options! As plus size women, that is something that is missing in our sector of clothing and I, for one, am excited when both high- and low-end brands emerge onto the scene.

Aside from their buttery cashmere though, Ryllace has a really good mix of items ranging in price as low as $48. I really love the simplistic yet chic essence that their brand exudes. I am constantly looking for items that fit well because it allows you to wear fairly basic garments in a very elevated way. When you combine great fabrics with great fit, you are sure to look put together and polished!

Be sure to check out all Ryllace’s full selection of clothing including the items that I’m wearing!
