{Style} Leather + Lace

As summer slowly comes to a close, I’m finding myself slipping into more fall inspired looks. Technically the first day of fall isn’t for a couple more weeks, but why not start airing out your fall clothes and adding a few new pieces. Adding new pieces to your wardrobe, no matter the season, is exciting, but can leave a dent in your wallet. This is why I always enjoy being introduced to affordable plus size brands. Pink Basis is an online shop that has standard sizes, plus size and accessories. They have a huge selection of killer heels, but plenty of boots and booties for fall. Pink Basis’ plus size section goes from 1x to 3x which roughly translate to 14/16 to 22/24. They have a good mix of items between party dresses to casual wear, even corsets and bedroom wear. Which kind of sums up my plans for the next few months. I have the one year anniversary with my boyfriend and a girls trip to Vegas! I highly suggest checking out the site especially during their amazing sale. Fashion doesn’t always have to cost an arm and a leg, it’s about finding what works for you.

{Style} All Floral Everything

I love a good floral print and they can be hard to come by, it’s true! Not all floral prints are created equal, so when I found this marigold floral maxi dress at Forever 21, I knew I had to have it. I love the natural waistline on this dress, it’s comfortable and flattering, but what surprised me the most about this marigold maxi dress was how much I loved the halter neckline. I’ve stayed away from halter necklines for a long, long time thinking they were’t flattering for plus size women, but I was proved wrong and I’m glad I was. I’ve worn this dress to work, date night and the farmers market, needless to say it’s super easy to take it from day to night.

Ladies, don’t forget, time and time again, don’t be afraid to try new styles! Wear what you want, own it and don’t limit your style options.

Ever since I blogged about the metallic shoe trend, I’ve been obsessed with metallics. Shoes, handbag and clothes, maybe it’s the ’90s girl in me, but I’m digging this trend across all boards. Needless to say, when I saw these flats from Barefoot Tess, I was stoked to style them. Tess Russell, who is behind the online shoe store Barefoot Tess, is a 20-something-year old who gives women above a size 10  (sizes 11-15) in shoes the option to have current, trendy shoe options. I love this idea because I’m a 10.5 to 11 in shoes and I have wide feet. My sister is a 11 or 12 and she hates shoe shopping, but after I told her about Barefoot Tess, I could see her face light up.

The shoes I’m wearing are the Adelaide and their from Barefoot Tess brand, their store line has tons of styles, kitten heels, sandals, loafers, flats, any and every style you can imagine. They’re super comfortable and I love the pointed toe, I felt like styling them with a ’90s inspired daisy dress seemed appropriate.  The store doesn’t stop at their BFT line, they have other brands in the shop like Jeffery Campbell, Steve Madden, Dolce Vita and Blowfish, SO many options!

It’s about style, and style shouldn’t stop at size 10 in shoes or a size 8 in clothes.

Side note: I think I want to change the color of my hair, I feel like this one isn’t doing it for me anymore.
