Casual Weekender

If I had to name a look that is the perfect Summer-to-Fall transition outfit, it would be this. It has elements from each of the seasons that come together to create a seamless look. Best of all, this whole outfit from head-to-toe is from Walmart! I’ve partnered with Walmart for several posts recently and each time I go on the website to shop for new clothes, I am pleasantly surprised by their selection. As I’ve mentioned before, I feel as though the brand has really stepped up their variety of fashionable, on-trend clothing in a major way. That is confirmed by you all when I post on social media and I receive comments like “That’s from Walmart?!”. And I respond, “yes sis! It’s trendy and affordable”. So, this time around, I stumbled upon these items that I think make a very easy-to-wear, casual yet chic Fall outfit. 

The Perfect Fall Sweater

Let’s start with the sweater. I absolutely love how simplistic yet different this sweater is. The oatmeal color is very minimalist, which allows it to be paired with just about anything. In the Fall especially, versatility is key since you don’t want a lot of bulky sweaters and jackets to fill up your closet. The tie in the front is subtle but so unique. It is surprisingly very hard for me to find a good sweater. Since I’m plus size, I’m always concerned about the fit not being too over-sized and it hitting my hips at the right spot. This sweater is semi-fitted, very comfortable and the tie in the front allows me to dictate how it fits my waist and hips. Check out some of my other favorite sweaters from Walmart’s latest arrivals:

Fall Clothing Staples

I decided to keep things light since it still very much feels like Summer. So I opted for a distressed pair of whit denim. However, I really wanted to infuse Fall style into this look so there came in these booties. The booties are probably my favorite find from Walmart to date! I love that they are peep-toe which is great for me to wear in Los Angeles. With the color is this rich, cognac brown that I can wear with so many different looks (get used to seeing these). They are very well made and a great shoe staple.

As always, the outfit details are listed below. You cannot beat these prices! Happy shopping!

Finding Balance

September 22, 2019


Tomorrow is the first day of Fall and the name of the game during this transition period is…Summer styles, Fall colors. And by Fall colors, I mean prints too. If where you live is anything like Los Angeles, temperatures are still warm and even outright hot some days. So while I’m loving all of the Fall garments from faux leather leggings to suede moto jackets, the weather just won’t allow me to go there yet. We are very much still in an “in-between” phase. So, the solution to that is to take full advantage of the Fall color palette, just in breathable and airy styles.

A perfect example of how to get that balance is this look. I actually spotted (pun intended) this skirt on JcPenney’s Instagram account. It was so striking that it made me stop scrolling to find out more about it. I absolutely love the bold print and how it comes in the form of this pleated skirt. What I love most is that while I can style it with an off the shoulder top and strappy high heels now, I can also easily transition this to cooler weather. An edgy moto jacket with a sleek pair of booties is a stylish alternative for the months to come.

As always, be sure to check out the outfit details below and let me know what you think in the comments!

Olive You

September 15, 2019


One of the reasons why Fall fashion is my favorite is because of all of it’s beautiful colors. The Fall palette is hands down the best collection of colors and shades. All of the earth tones, rust and burnt oranges, as well as the rich jewel tones make the most basic clothing come to life. There’s something very luxe and chic about Fall fashion that is unlike any other season. Although it is not Fall quite yet, fashion is always ahead so I’m sure you’ve noticed that you have no problems finding Fall trends. Retail stores start putting the next season’s items out as early as August so now, it is all about Fall/Winter.

As I mentioned in previous posts, there is always this conflict of wearing the next season’s trends, but still wanting to be functional for the current climate. Los Angeles is still very warm so I cannot even think of wearing moto jackets, dusters, or anything of the sort. This look, I feel, is a great blend and a possible solution to that problem. Olive is obviously one of the quintessential colors of Fall so doing a full monochromatic look is very on trend. However, wearing a mesh top and pencil skirt still make it cool and breathable for these warm temperatures. It’s functional and trendy!

TrendyCurvy Travels: NYFW 2019

September 12, 2019

My bags are still unpacked and I’m living out of suitcases but, it’s time for another New York Fashion Week recap! This is my third year attending the NYFW/CurvyCon combo and I have so much to share. I get so excited for this time of year for many reasons. One is that there is nothing like New York during fashion week. It is filled with so many trendsetting fashionistas and I get so inspired about my own style. The other reason is that year after year, fashion is getting more and more diverse. And I mean that across the board – from size, to age, racially and even people with disabilities. It is so encouraging to see and it makes me feel as though we are moving in the right direction.

So without further adieu, let’s get into this recap.

New York City Hotel

This is my second time staying at AKA Wall Street and it is definitely my favorite hotel in New York at the moment. The rooms are set up like studio apartments equipped with a full kitchen, living room and bedroom area. It’s chic, sleek and a great place to unwind from the busy NYC streets. Plus, the customer service is so amazing. From the front desk clerk to the bellman, everyone is so hospitable and attentive. I highly recommend.

The CurvyCon

CurvyCon is literally a breath of fresh air. If you haven’t been, you are really missing out on an amazing experience. To walk in a room of so many women that look like you and share the same sentiments as you is something you really can’t describe. And the fact that it was created by plus size women just sends it over the top. Bravo to Chasity & Cece for another incredible year!

I was overwhelmed with the love and kind words that I received while there. Every hug and picture that I took I truly cherish. Thank you for being so kind and for being such a great online community!
