I never thought that I’D be saying this, but, we gotta let WHITE BOOTS cook for fall/winter. Man, listen! I always thought white boots looked like majorette boots. But, lately I’ve been seeing the celebs and IG influencers rocking white boots and it’s making me think I can give them some room for the season. So, I had to go to my polyvore page to play around with looks featuring white boots. After I created these looks, I think I’m sold, you should get some white boots this year. Let’s get into it:
People! This is not a drill! The most stylish woman on TV, Tracee Ellis Ross (Joan from Girlfriends and Bow from blackish) is releasing a HOLIDAY FASHION COLLECTION with JCPenney! Get your coins together, because just like Rihanna’s FENTY BEAUTY collection, all the girls will line up for this!
As I type, Tracee is releasing looks from the upcoming, November 12th, drop. So far we’ve seen four looks. The company and Tracee have delcalred these pieces as affordable and SIZE INCLUSIVE! That’s right kids, from a small to a 3xl, you can have a bit of Tracee’s style in your life!
Tracee’s style is well documented. She’s appeared in all types of magazines and continues to slay the red carpet … and when she’s just going to get coffee. She dresses her body well, mixes hi/lo, vintage, and trends, plus she has curves and isn’t afraid to show them. She’s a perfect collaborator for JCPenney, a company that was once America’s store for home and fashion.
Since she’s working with JCPenney, I’m hoping this won’t sell-out immediately. But it is a holiday capsule collection which means its available for a limited time. November 12th is a month away, prices range from $9-$75. I can’t wait to see how everyone styles their Tracee looks! There’s something for everyone’s style: boho, chic, trendy, and classic. I’m going up for that sparkle dress! Yes honey!
As I’ve said before, the best way to embrace fall in the south is to rock summer style in fall colors. That’s why the denim-on-denim trend works so well right now. You can layer for those brisk mornings, while prepping to look casually fine at Happy Hour. Below, I spotlight three outfits to inspire you to rock DENIM on Denim! Believe, it’s all the rage! Let’s get started:
I was really in my feelings about not attending New York Fashion Week this September! But I had to take those lowkey jealous feelings and turn them into something creative. So, I decided to check out some of my favorite NYFW street-style photogs and be inspired by fly fall style. NYFW (or any fashion week) is the perfect time to take a chance with fashion. Push the limit a bit, try something you’ve never tried, and add some FAB to your confidence. Get inspired by the looks below:
I know, I know, it’s still warm outside, especially in Tennessee. But, I’m already thinking about Fall 2017! Now, we are no where near pumpkin spiced lattes and lots of layer, but we can start adding some fall features to our hot weather looks. Below, I’ve assembled some very fab looks to help you transition into fall while still rocking summer style. Basically, how do you dress for fall when it’s still super hot?! Let’s get started!
I have to admit, I looked cute this summer, but with changing jobs, I didn’t live my BEST style life. My funds were kinda low, real talk. But, you know I’m coming with the amazingness this Fall! Also, Fall is when I flourish. I’m from the northeast, we crush fall fashion! We love layers! We delight in artisanal autumn awesomeness! And, we will not deny our love for pumpkin spiced anything!
So check out my mood board for fall. My Pinterest is where I go to create seasonal vibes! Let me know what your feeling for Fall 2017!
When I saw these platform mules from Strategia, I knew I had to create a look! These mules are giving me UPDATED late 90’s vibes and I am HERE for it. I love a shoe that can give you a bit of height, but still be comfortable. So, I came up with this cute summer look to inspire you to run your errands in style!
I don’t know about you, but I ALWAYS end up running into someone I know (or someone I want to know better) when I’m looking busted and disgusted. So, I’ve been trying to make an effort to look a bit cuter when I’m out & about. I’m going to take my own advice, and find a similar look like the one above. You know I’ll post OOTD’s on my IG and on the blog!
WOULD YOU ROCK IT?
Right on time for this four day weekend, I had to give you some Summer Vacation outfit inspiration. I usually do a Fourth of July post, with a ‘red, white, and blue’ theme but I thought, “How cliche!” No fashionista I know would be THAT corny, but we do love adding elelments of the holiday in our otherwise cute looks. So, I decided to give you some non-traditional summer looks for your vacations and extended weekend trips.
This first look is casual and chic. I tried hate on the sudden Gucci love, but I LOVE these GG Marmont purses. I wanted show how you can rock a luxury bag with chill laid back accessories. And, y’all know how I love a New York Yankees fitted! I just think this look is so fly and fab.
Maybe this post should be called, “I tried not to like it, but now I do” – LOL! But I tried not to fall into the whole ‘rose gold’ and ‘blush pink’ vibe, but it looks SO good! I pulled these pieces for a cute summer Date Night look and/or girls night out event. And yes, it’s another Gucci bag! But DOGGONE IT their PR company must be working overtime because I’m in love! Oh yeah, get into denim skirts, they are the JAM!
This last look is for the pool. Well, brunch, then the pool. I’m loving the trend of embellished flats for the summer. Finally, we can take off the heels and still look cute. I’m telling you, get a pair of cute flats/slides, your feet will thank you.
So, I hope these outfits will help you look great this summer. Let me know how you will be spending your summer vacation.
Did you know that there’s a style subscription service for PLUS-SIZE ladies? YES, it’s called Dia & Co! Let’s talk about it!
Personally, I love going shopping at the mall and trying on clothes, but I know so many women HATE IT! Plus-Size or not, there’s nothing worse than shopping all day and coming home with NOTHING! Dia & Co, takes the work out of shopping and allows you to be stylish!
This is a subscription service that allows YOU to try on looks at home. When you sign-up for Dia & Co, you’ll take a SHORT questionnaire that will identify your style. An online stylist will assemble your box and ship it to you right away! You can receive new boxes every two-three weeks, once a month, or every other month. Keep only the pieces you like, send back what you don’t. SIMPLE!
Another great thing about the Dia & Co website is the amazing lookbooks that help customers navigate new trends. Using inspiration from the Dia & Co lookbooks, I decided to take on this SPRING denim trend. Keeping it simple, I paired these distressed jeans from River Island with a simple white t-shirt and pastel jacket. Add some gold jewelry and you are ready to go!
Dia & Co has pieces similar to those shown above, plus many more. Customers can choose to have accessories added to their subscription box too. Did I mention, they go up to a size 32 and often send you pieces from TOP plus-size retailers. This is a good deal!
