Back To School–Plus Size Denim 3 Ways

Pretty sure you aren’t ready to hear the words “Back To School.”

Well, I won’t apologize just yet!

If you’re in college, thinking about what to wear to class is the last thing on your mind. You’re worrying about the cost of books, semester credits, and that weird thing your roommate does in her sleep. Side note, my college roommate was a sleepwalker and totally tried to smother me with a pillow one night…she managed to wake up before my untimely death. FYI: we’re still friends but that’s neither here nor there so I’ll just move right along ūüôā

Is there a better way to take your mind off all of those stressful college things than clothes?! Personally, I think not! Previously, I created a “Back To School Bag Guide”¬† for every type of student, better known as the “Bag” To School Guide for any budget. This year, I wanted help my fellow book hoarders with outfit ideas.

First up: DENIM! Plus size jeans (denim) don’t have to be expensive (just like everything else in the mall.) They’re perfect for dressing up, dressing down and anything in between.

Here’s three back to school looks¬†for 2014.


Back To School Plus Size Denim: Look #1


Back To School Denim: Look #2


Plus Size Back To School Denim: Look #3
What did you think of those three outfit ideas?
All are easy to shop for, affordable, on trend, and totally suitable for going back to class! Be sure to add your own touches to make each look personalized for you. Hopefully these looks will give your brain a boost before hitting the books (definitely a lot less stressful than finals in a few months!)
Almost forgot…I’m sorry for mentioning school.

30 Days of Shoes for September: Day 1

September is readers choice month!


Not exactly sure if that’s a real thing but it’s definitely something I created for all of you wonderful readers aka my “stylish sweets!” Last month, I posted a poll question for my¬†Facebook¬†fans and¬†Instagram¬†followers. Wanting to hear from you guys, the question was…


Would you rather see?

A) 30 days of heels

B) 30 days of any shoes

C) 30 days of bags

D) something else


So, you have spoken, well, some of you and it’s been decided that it’s a tie! We’re all shopaholics and lovers of fashion, a tie is only fitting! The winning votes were for B) 30 days of shoes and D) 30 days of shoes under a certain price…that’s almost the same thing and it’s absolutely fabulous!



Here are the first pair of shoes…






Have you guessed the 30 day theme? It was hard, trust me!

The task was putting these 30 days on a budget. Easier said than done. My first idea was anything under $50 but then I realized, we could possibly miss out on tons of cute shoes. The next thought was $75 but what about those designers that price shoes at $89 or $99?! What about the $149 pair that could be on sale this week? See, it gets tricky!


30 Days of Shoes Under $100 = problem solved!


Can’t wait to see the next 28 days!


Happy Shopping!



Friday Fashion Faves: Designer Edition

It’s the weekend, time to to get your sleep in! That is literally ALL I want to do…sleep! We all know that’s not going to happen. Stopping by the post office to ship the¬†fabulous¬†Julep Maven prize, Iron Man 3 and shopping is on my agenda for the weekend. Not to shabby if I do say so myself. Speaking of shopping, I’ve been eyeing a certain pair of Kors sneakers lately.


THIS pair of Michael Kors sneakers to be exact. Priced at $195 on MichaelKors. 






It’s rare that I’ll get shoes from anywhere other than¬†DSW¬†because they have¬†ev-e-ry-thing¬†and it’s priced way way below suggested retail pricing. But this pair of sneaks need to be in my closet as soon as possible…they’ll go with practically anything and last through the seasons. While I was surfing the MK site, I noticed tons of other things and you know he does curvy sizes too!


Here are all of my current favorites from Michael Kors…ENJOY!

Well, that was fun. That won’t help my shopping addiction AT ALL.


Stepping Into Spring with Stylish Shoes

It’s been a while since I’ve went shoe shopping…by a while I mean a couple months. So yes, this is what I’d call a “drought” and I am upset about it! The best thing to do in this scenario: look at the new arrivals from the spring and summer lines that are going up on store shelves. Plus this will give me (and you) a pretty good idea of what we need covering our toesies in the coming weeks.


I’m a true girly girl with a sports edge so my shoe collection ranges from extreme heels to low skateboard type sneakers. Try to stay versatile with your shoe game because you never know when a certain pair will come in handy. If you want to try something new and different from your normal shoe-style, stick with the least expensive stores and brands. It’s not really a good idea to spend $250 on 2-inch hidden platform, 5-inch heels if you’ve never worn a pair before.


So, here’s where the fun part comes in! As I do with all shopping posts, there will be a dreamy high price shoe and “the look for less” shoe! Let’s get shoe shopping…
