Spring Style at Wal-Mart (yes, Wal-Mart!)

Recently I've seen some of my favorite bloggers buzzing about some new clothing lines at Wal-Mart, so of course I needed more information. Turns out, Wal-Mart is re-vamping their clothing offerings across the store and with that are two new ladies lines - Time & Tru and Terra & Sky. Time & Tru offers straight sizes but does go to size 22 while Terra & Sky is the plus size offering starting at size 14 and going up to size 26. In theory if you're a size 14 to 22 you could shop both lines so since I fall into this category I decided to test it out.
 
First off, it's important to note that Time & Tru also has accessories - jewelry, handbags, shoes and even swimsuits / cover ups. Look at these super cute earrings I scored - they were $4 y'all!!!!!
 
 
 
Look at all the earrings! I had a very difficult time sticking to just one pair, I think next time I'll grab the black and white flowers and a pair of tassels.
 
So now let me show you some things I tired on, please don't judge my black bar too hard.
 
I really liked this ruffle tee - tees are such a get versatile piece and the ruffle makes it a little fun and on trend. As you can see, you need to wear a nude bra with it but it does come in four colors (at least that I saw in store)
 
 
Also fun is this ruffle sleeve jumpsuit which comes in at least four colors. I'm seriously considering this for my cruise in April as I think it's something that could be dressed up or dressed down but I'd like to wear with my swimsuit on excursions.
 
 
Finally I tried on this boho style top which sadly was too tight for me but would be really cute on a smaller size.


 

 
 I tried on several other not knit items but they did not work for me. I'd say the sizing runs a size small which for most won't be a problem. My store didn't';t have the entire collection in store but here's some knit tops I saw online I've very interested in:
 
 


 
Now let's move onto the Terra & Sky collection. This collection doesn't have nearly as many in store or online selection but there was still some cute items to grab.
 
This Chambray dress runs true to size and also comes in several prints. I actually wound up purchasing this dress and it's under $20.
 
 
This ruffle top was super cute but loose on top and snug on the hips - I do like it but the next size up wasn't available in store so I'll have to purchase on line and it does come in several prints as well. Clearly though I'm feeling Chambray right now.
 
 
Here's some of the items I have my eye on online. The pink pants have REALLY good reviews.
 


 
Overall I think both collections are nice. I would have loved to have seen a line that offered the same styles in both straight and plus like Target does but it's a nice start in upping the clothing game.

Jessica London Style Swap

One of my favorite things about social media is how it has become this wonderful shared collective space. When it comes to fashion I love styling outfits and mixing up items in my closet but I also love seeing how other people style the pieces I have and I am always getting style inspiration from others.
In that spirit this month I teamed up with Lexi Nimmo to share some of our favorite pieces for fall from Jessica London. Lexi and I recently discovered that we have the same taste in clothing and tend to pick a lot of the same pieces so we thought it would be fun to team up and style some of the same items on purpose for once. We each picked two items so we could have four looks each to share. 
Lexi picked a leather moto jacket and sleeveless mock neck sweater. I decided to get the jacket in blue instead of the traditional black because I wear a lot of blue as is so I knew it would go with a lot of things in my closet. For the mock neck sweater I went with a cream color because I’ve …

Plum Paper Designs - Fitness Insert

I know I say this every year but this year I also want to make wellness / fitness a priority. It's hard for me to get in the mindset of making it important because quite frankly it's not something my doctor gets onto me about. But during 2015 I've been making a switch to a more natural lifestyle and that has put fitness back at my top of mind. So, for $4.50 I got the fitness section added onto my Plum Paper Designs Planner 
Here's what's inside:

A monthly layout for 12 months
Weight Loss Tracker at the Back 

I LOVE the monthly layout! First off, having a hydration tracker for each day is going to be so nice. I also love the idea of holding myself accountable to writing down an activity (or excuse) each day. Most of all I love the recognition that each month will have different goals and includes some note sections ; one thing I hear a lot form people who successfully got fit was that they had some kind of tracking and were able to go back…

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …
