15 Plus-Size Must-Have Denim Pieces for Fall


If  you're currently getting your fall wardrobe together, denim pieces should definitely be on your shopping list.  While denim is a great year-round fabric, it works especially well for fall and for those awkward days when we're transitioning between seasons. Plus, with all the different styles to choose from these days, your denim pieces can easily take you from desk to drinks in a flash.

Mini Me










I don't know if it's just me, but the heat this summer has been almost unbearable.  Whenever I have to go out, I find myself fighting the urge to forgo clothes all together.  However, since that's not actually an option, at least not in this country, I've been reaching for shorts (see post here), rompers, and my favorite mini-skirts while counting down the days until fall.

Classic Contrast


There's nothing quite like the classic contrast of black and white.  Not only is it simple, clean and always modern, but no matter how you choose to style this timeless color combination you will always look put together.  So, when deciding what to wear to close out my exciting birthday festivities last month (see post here), opting for this black and white printed skirt was easy.  It was the perfect look for a quiet birthday dinner.

I think we can all agree that fall is the most exciting time for fashion.  It's like entering a new year.  However, instead of making resolutions we can't keep, we get an opportunity to reinvent ourselves through our clothing by experimenting with our personal styles and translating trends from the runway into our everyday looks.

As you know, black and white is my favorite color combo and is always my default when I'm not quite sure what to wear, especially for special occasions.  So, to save myself some time and avoid any unnecessary stress, I add pieces like this white and black City Chic dress to my closet periodically, so I can reach for them when I have an impromptu date night or a last minute special event.

Blessed Birthday


Last month, I celebrated another birthday and I could not feel more blessed. After spending most of last year and part of this year recuperating from some very serious health issues (see post here), I am so happy to see another year and have the opportunity to spend it with the person I love most in the world - my mom.

Just In: Black Shoes


If  there is one thing I love more than clothes, it's shoes.  There's just something about the power of shoes.  A pair of shoes can make or break an outfit.  They can also take a look from casual to dressy or give a little edge to a more polished look.  The perfect pair of shoes can vary depending on your personal style and your lifestyle, but I think that we can all agree that having a few pairs of black shoes in our wardrobes is a must.

Jumpstart


Lately, I've been a bit obsessed with finding ways to improve my health.  Besides making some very necessary changes to my eating habits, like eliminating wheat, white potatoes and sugary store-bought juices from my diet and eating more veggies/fruits, I've been looking for ways to jumpstart my exercise routine. However, since hitting the gym is not an option, since I find it pretty boring, I've been looking for alternatives that would be fun so that I could stay motivated and stay on track.
