The Girl With Curves 1

fashion size quote

Recently I had a friend reach out to me about plus size clothing and the challenges she faces finding fashionable pieces. What intrigued me the most about this request was how she said, “I’m talking real fashionable choices – It’s a major challenge, but it’s bound to exist!” Plus-size clothing is definitely a huge market, but finding the right way to channel new fashion trends is what is most important to focus on.

I believe that dressing for your shape and size is the key focus when it comes to getting that perfect street-style look. My take on clothing, for any size, is to find pieces that flatter your figure – not hide it! One of the biggest mistakes women make is wanting to wear baggy clothing because they are insecure of their shape, but often this actually makes women look much heavier! Curves are beautiful, so it’s time to start finding all the right pieces to flaunt your figure!

Regardless of size, all women have the ability to rock the season’s latest trends. Check out my curvy-girl picks for a few of my favorite Fall trends, as well as a few favorite classic looks beneath. Happy shopping!

Feeling Fall 3

Fashion Blog Nashville

Spending the weekend in Tennessee always makes me really appreciate the Fall season. With the perfect weather and relaxing atmosphere, it’s the best way to embrace the new season. We spent the weekend in Nashville celebrating a close friend’s wedding, and this week I am working from our cabin in the mountains… Definitely soaking in this relaxation!

For a casual afternoon look, I paired my favorite DL 1961 skinnies with an Aztec sweater and ankle boots. One trend I am obsessing over this season is the bucket bag. Though I am seriously coveting the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag, I snagged this hunter green bucket bag recently (which was such a steal!) to test out the trend before investing. What do you think of Fall’s bucket bag trend?

Bold Prints 3

Lela rose shift dress

A bold print on a classic shape is one of my favorite ways to add a little pop into my look. I love investing in designer pieces that will not go out of style, but can still be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. Last night I paired one of my favorite Lela Rose dresses with a bold statement necklace, a classic black stiletto, and a bright orange clutch to pull out the warm tones of the fabric for the Red Cross YPA kickoff party at Hotel ZaZa. Check out my look from the event and shop some of my favorite printed shifts below!

Not Your Boyfriend’s Jeans 4

French Connection Leather Top

If I could wear my boyfriend jeans everyday, I would be one very happy girl. There’s nothing better than the versatility of denim, but having the comfort level of sweats! To keep from looking too slouchy in boyfriends, I like to pair them with extra feminine accessories like a glamorous statement earring or a killer pair of heels. I styled mine with this amazing leather top I scored from French Connection this season, which adds a bold touch to the distressed denim features.

Monochrome Midi 2

Dallas Blogger Midi Skirt

The midi skirt has been one trend I’ve been searching for all season, and since I am on the shorter side, I was determined to find the perfect fit to keep from overwhelming my frame. I picked up this white midi from the Missguided showroom in New York, and I am so thrilled with the shape and length! I paired this skirt with my highest Gianmarco Lorenzi stilettos and an ASOS black crop (also seen here) to balance out the fullness of the skirt, as well as to add some height beneath the hem. The easiest way to rock a midi skirt is to make sure you pair it with a feminine top that accentuates your shape, as well as avoiding flats – unless you are model height. See how I styled my new midi and shop my picks below!
