Happy Tuesday! This week is a busy one for me!  I am off this weekend to Kansas city and Chicago. This last weekend i really cleaned out my closet. I got rid of 14 bags of clothing. I have been really under going a change in my style. I only actually kept a few things that i felt really like me. I kept this cute little sweater and skirt. I thought i would post them because i am celebrating over 100 consecutive posts today! To think this last year, i was merely a baby blog. I have grown so much since this last year. I want to thank everyone and (even the my fans on GOMI) for driving me to do better !

One thing i love about fall is all the pretty colors. More recently i have been breaking out my plaid and flannel. I haven’t been feeling well, so i have been browsing lots of cute fashion ideas. I am obsessing over these plaid items i found. I am in love with plaid for the fall. I hope you enjoy the fun things i have found! Have a great monday.

Breast Cancer Awarenss Month-Think Pink

bcawareness1. /2./3. /4./5. /6./

Ocotober is breast cancer awareness month. This year i will be running Race for the Cure .  I picked out a few of my favorite pink things right now. I am sorta of obsessed with the Pink Carousel collection from Zelie for She. The best part of the collection is that a portion funds breast cancer research. I also am obsessed with lipsticks. I love the Ka’oir line! The best part about this lipstick its called “survivor”. The proceeds go to fund the Susan G Komen Foundation. I also put in a few more little things, my favorite bow pumps at the moment! The bag is also from Brighton, its a “breast cancer” awareness bag! I hope you have a great weekend. Remember Breast Cancer is important. Schedule your mammograms today. Keep fighting.

*this post is dedicated to Annette Franklin, who i have the honor of running for. Keep fighting the good fight neighbor. Love you.

Jacket: Vintage (Similar) / Top: Old (no longer available)     / Pants: Cinched Leg Track Pants – Old Navy / Shoes: Lava “honey” / Bracelets : Positivity Bands / Watch: Gucci (Similar) / Necklace: Vintage

The one thing about fall, that it seems I am more comfortable in clothing. I found these amazing track pants from old navy. The sporty chic is an amazing trend. I decided to dress it up with a statement jacket and some heels. I was super comfortable. The great thing is that the pants fit any type of body. They work if you are plus or not. I just made it a subtle black and white look. Happy Thursday.

Currently one of my dream places to shop is Bloomingdales. Every year they offer 20% during their friends and family sale. I went ahead and picked out my favorites. What’s really great about Bloomingdales is that they provide a wide variety of designers and styles. Bloomingdales is pretty amazing, they even offer stylish plus size clothing. I of course had to pick everything leather (since leather is my current obsession). I have two different categories here, clothes and shoes and accessories. I hope you shop the sale, and have a great Wednesday.

Happy Monday, although fall is here I often find myself missing the summer. I found this cute t-shirt this weekend on mega clearance from my local Ann Taylor, even though it makes me miss summer. I though it would be a fun idea to throw in a pop or a color to my look. Old Navy has these amazing pants that are out now called the “pixie” pants, they are amazing, they’re very versatile with everything! The pixie pants are available in plus sizes via thee old navy website! I hope that you have a great work week.

Lately I have been really obsessed with leather. When I was in junior high, leather pants were the coolest thing. I remember I could never find anything that fit me, however in the last few years the plus size movement in terms of fashion has really grown, there are more options than ever. I have a picked a few of my favorite leather trends, I hope you enjoy.
