Musings of a Curvy Lady
Blue Jegging Baby
Saturday, August 30, 2014
I wouldn't call myself a tee shirt and jeans kinda girl. I mean, I like denim but I feel way more comfortable in a skirt or a dress. But when I do find a pair that I love I'm kind of obsessed and wear them all the time. Case in point, these amazing jeggings from Deb - they surprisingly fit over my hump and waist with no problem! Plus you can get them for 50% off this Labor Day Weekend!
The fit of these jeggings are just about perfect but I suggest sizing up since Deb has junior plus sizes. (I'm wearing a 24.) I'm 5'4 and usually have to take my jeans to the tailor to shorten them so they hit my ankle but I don't think I will with these. Pair your jeggings with a fun printed top and pumps for a casual chic look that can take you from day party cocktails to date night with ease.

Big & Bold
Sunday, August 24, 2014
A bold color pairing may appear to be too much to wear all at once -- too overwhelming some say ... but I can't help to love this bright pink and orange combo. With a dash of leopard print via my pumps it created a neutral base that supports the bright look. Color and confidence go hand in hand when wearing two strong bright hues. You can take this runway trend and do it your way to make it practical and real world wearable.

You can't go through summer without trying this trend so why don't you give a few of these color pairings a go while we still have a few more weeks till fall. (Honestly, I would probably wear these colors well into winter but that's just me.) I still want to recreate a few of these looks myself -- they look so fun yet refined -- like an adult sophisticated Punky Brewster. Go big and go bold, ladies!

If you've been following WetSeal on Instagram you know that this summer they've been celebrating the grand openings of WetSeal+ throughout the US with over 25 locations! It's always exciting as a plus sized woman to have another brick and mortar store created with our hips and curves in mind. Have you tried them out yet? The jeans fit amazingly although I probably won't be able to shoot a look in them since it's been so terribly hot here with daily heat advisories and what not -- so I tend to be going pants free. This WetSeal+ maxi is perfect - bright and bold and very practical. I'm wearing a 3x. Remember that WetSeal+ are junior plus sizes so they run a little small so definitely size up.

Flawless High School Days
Monday, August 18, 2014
Happy Monday & Happy First Day of School for the kiddos in Jacksonville!
I wanted to dedicate this post to all the big girls starting school soon.
I remember back to school time being a time of excitement and nervousness but definitely some disappointment because of the lack of cute clothes options I would have when shopping for fall looks. I usually compensated with having the best school supplies including the entire Lisa Frank Dolphin Collection. But I digress ... Since I've started blogging I've received a lot of emails from young readers about back to school looks. This got me thinking back to my high school self and what I wore. I graduated from high school a decade ago -- eeek! and even with the limited options of stylish clothes back then I still was able to look trendy, comfortable and fab during my high school days ( a lot of it has to do with how you carry yourself, no matter what you're wearing.) Today we have a lot more fun plus size options that will help you feel fashionable, flawless but most of all confident while you get your education on.
I styled this back to school look from Deb -- who have a great junior plus size range sizes 14-24. Right now they are having amazing deals for their School Your Style Sale so definitely check them out if you're in need of some back to school threads.
