Ok, so hands down these are my favorite jeans and jacket right now and yes they are from Rainbow! These jeans are so stylish and comfy (and they are on sale for less than $25 -- yes!) and the same goes with the jacket -- super comfortable and I can see myself rocking thi from now until next summer and beyond.

I rocked these same jeans in a look from last week and just switched out the top and jacket for a completely different look. Finding pieces that transcends through the seasons is always a plus and definitely helps your pocket book! So, don't be afraid to play around in your closet and some remix some old outfits to create something new. Or find something new to mix with something you already have, the options are limitless!

It's crazy...I have always been told that yellow is my color. But honestly I think that yellow, and like colors compliments everyone and every skin tone. It's such a bright and happy color and it definitely demands attention. In today's look, I am rocking a dress from my Shop Lace N Leopard. "Naomi" features a light weight sweater material, beautiful choker detailing and the perfect midi length. Of course, you could wear the dress alone or you could add your favorite leather jacket and clutch for a little edge and sex appeal. This dress is perfect for any occasion, from brunch to a steamy date. Whatever you decide to do, you'll look hot doing it!

Sometimes we feel that we have to spend an arm and a leg to come up with a cute outfit. But if style was about money a lot of us would be looking a hot mess lol. We all have different budgets and we have to make it work for our situation. That's why I enjoy showing trendy looks for less. This entire look came from Rainbow and I don't think it could be any trendier. From the uniquely distressed jeans to the cute bomber jacket. I just added some strappy heels and was out the door. So, next time you go to reach deep into your pockets, for an outfit, remember you define your style not your pocketbook.

Much love,

Sometimes simple goes a long way. I'm learning more and more that staple pieces are everything! I am trying to come up with a capsule wardrobe as we speak. "Capsule wardrobe is a term coined by Susie Faux, the owner of a London boutique called "Wardrobe" in the 1970s. A capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don't go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, coats, which can be argumented with seasonal pieces." What does that mean? That your options are limitless! And that's major key lol.

This outfit is from Rainbow Shops and I think it's ultra sexy. Pair a cute pair of skinny jeans with a bodysuit or tucked-in top and you are good to go! I know that a tucked top could be "taboo" to some plus size women, but it's nothing to it but to do it! You can always wear shapewear, as I did in this look, or be free with it. In the end, if you don't like it...try something else. At least you can say you tried it ;) Doing things like this, builds your confidence one outfit at a time. I finished off the look with some comfy heels and a faux snakeskin clutch for a little extra edge.

I hope you enjoyed this look and remember simple can be everythingggg too!

PS. This exact look is sold out but I listed similar options from Rainbow in the picture caption.

Ashley Stewart True Model Contest

I cannot tell you how many times people have emailed me, DM'd me, heck...even instant messaged me asking how they could get their start in modeling. Even though I model clothing, I am not a model..I am a blogger --so I can't give too much direction in that area. However, when I see a life changing opportunity for aspiring models I can definitely share it with you and that is my way of helping ;) 

Ashley Stewart has an ah-mazing opportunity for one lucky winner to score a 2-year modeling contract with True Model Management and a campaign photoshoot with Ashley Stewart! These type of opportunities do not show up every day. So, if this has been your dream...it is time to go for it! Submissions end 11.6.16. Check out the official rules on AshleyStewart.com and good luck boo!

Hollywood Nights


This weekend I had an absolute blast with my friend's at Ashley Stewart! As you may already know I partnered with the brand on their extended sizes campaign and their #LoveYourCurvesTour and this weekend I helped celebrate an awesome story of resilience for a young breast cancer survivor-- Charity.

AS held a contest for a trip of a lifetime to Los Angeles to attend CBS Radio's #WeCanSurvive concert, at the Hollywood Bowl, featuring big names such as Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor, Pitbull and G-Eazy to name a few! The show raised money for, and the awareness of, The Young Survival Coalition, which provides support for young women with breast cancer. Charity was the winner of the contest with over 400 submissions and even got the chance to go on stage and introduce "Me Myself and I" rapper G-Eazy!

The show was awesome! With my personal favorites being the talented Bruno Mars and Ariana Grande. They sounded even better than they do on the radio! Truly ah-mazing voices and performances. I had so much fun but it didn't end there...
