Spring Styles to Wear Now


Is it just me or is 2019 passing along quickly? Welcome to March which is said to come in like a lion and out like a lamb. Sometimes fashion seasons and the weather don't match up but the fashion show must go on! While I'm waiting for the weather to catch up I'm wearing some new spring items with some added warmth now and I'll wear them without the layers later. Here's just a few examples of how you can take spring items and start wearing them now.
 
 
One of my favorite items to wear is a loose tunic - they are comfortable, cute and flattering. While I love a tunic with skinny jeans right now it needs a little extra layer for warmth so I'm topping this tunic I picked up at the Southern Women's Show with my utility jacket. When the weather warms up I'll either wear with the jeans alone, white pants or even a khaki skirt.

I came across this pink dress I just had to have it - it's so fun and super flattering. To wear it now I'm wearing a nude tank and panty hose (yes, they are still a thing people) to keep add a light layer for warmth underneath. While I feel like in the spring and summer the loose style of the dress will be perfect I added a black belt and black heels to add some structure without taking away from the natural flounce of the dress.

My next item was something I picked up in Atlanta when I stopped by the Draper James store. I am SO excited that Draper James is officially size inclusive but I've had a feeling this was coming after the Eloquii collabs. I went into the store thinking there would be other dresses I liked more but this floral cotton number was just so cute on I had to have it. Right now I'm wearing with  boots and a long sweater  (you could also add tights if it's really cold out) but once the weather warms up I'll keep it simple with some wedges and bamboo bag.

I also have this Draper James dress I bought on sale last December. Since gingham is always in style for the warm weather months it was too good of a deal to pass up. Right now I'm wearing with heels and a blazer for not only warmth but also a little work friendly look but when the weather warms up I'll let the dress stand out on its own.

Basically it all comes down to layers, of course not every spring outfit is going to look good layered up so it's definitely something to play around with but I hope this post has given you some ideas to get you started.
 
 
All my wear it later looks feature a bamboo bag and open toe sandals - that's not because I didn't want to bring a bunch of items to my photo shoot - I think these are great items to make items look current. Both round and the arc (what I'm carrying) look to be making a comeback this season so you really can't go wrong with your bamboo bag shape.  I got my wedges from Old Navy last year but I did find some similar styles currently available.

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…

Body Confidence

I have people tell me a lot that "I'm so confident" with such a tone of surprise and while really I think it's just that I'm a plus size women who happens to be loud and doesn't try to hide from the world but sometimes if I'm in a sensitive mood I'll take that as umm, don't you own a mirror, you should maybe be quiet and go to the gym. I'd say about 90% of the time I can say although I don't have my ideal body I don't hate myself and I don't let it keep me from living my life but then there's that 10% of the time . . .

Last week I had such a moment, You may have noticed that my pics I post on social media are either of me standing or are chest up if I'm sitting - now this is partially because I typically only take pics seated if I'm showing off a product so I was a more close up anyway but also here's something this people never have to think about - when you're plus size and you sit down if consolidates all t…

Lauren James Warehouse Sale Haul

Hello Friends! I know many of y'all kept up with my Lauren James warehouse sale journey over the weekend and if you're anything like me you like following along even if you couldn't make it yourself. When Lauren James announced the warehouse sale I was super excited but not sure I could make it work - it was short notice, a five hour drive and I'd already spent my June spending money. Luckily I have a good hubby who recognizes that sometimes you just need something fun in your life and was ok not only making the trip but with me borrowing from ourselves against my July spending money. Since this is the last warehouse sale Lauren James plans on holding I really didn't want the opportunity to slip by.
Warehouse sales can serve many purposes for a business - as a way to move excess inventory, create buzz and excitement for the brand, reward the most loyal brand fans by giving them access to great deal (which also puts more product into the hands of those most excite…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…
