Winter Blues

Plus Size Blue Coat

During the cold winter months, nothing helps me get over my winter blues like rocking a fabulous coat.  While finding great plus-size coat options that work for me has been extremely challenging this year, I've remained determined to find a few new pieces in bold prints and colors to add to my wardrobe.

Size Inclusivity: Plus-Size Models at New York Fashion Week

Precious Lee for Christian Siriano

One would think my love of clothes and style would mean that I get absolutely giddy when fashion week rolls around, but the truth is I find the whole thing to be extremely frustrating.  Watching as swoon-worthy pieces come down the runway, on only slender bodies, and knowing I can't fit into any of them is a bit maddening.   However, this season, I was pleasantly surprised to see so many plus-size models strutting their stuff for J.Crew, Michael Kors, Christian Siriano, Prabal Gurung and more.

Plus-Size Outfit Inspiration: Cool & Casual

Plus Size Black Leather Jacket Boyfriend Jeans Casual Outfit
While my casual looks often include skinny jeans and a great pair of heels (see previous post here), sometimes it's nice to mix things up a bit and opt for an outfit that's stylish and a bit more comfortable.  Boyfriend jeans offer both, style and comfort, and look particularly amazing when paired with a cool leather jacket and sneakers.

Spot On

Plus Size Leopard Coat

One thing we all need during the colder months, besides someone to cuddle with, is great outerwear. While go-to black coats are a must, it's always nice to have a few pieces in our wardrobes that can make a statement.  So, when I spotted this leopard coat from H&M, I just knew I had to have it.
