Traveling Gal

I have a really weird travel schedule coming up.  I'm going to London to participate in UK Plus Size Fashion Week and immediately after, with no trip home, I'm off to Jamaica for some much needed R&R.  That means packing two totally different wardrobes for two totally different climates. For me, planning looks beforehand is super important and wearing a piece multiple ways helps to save room in my suitcase. I'll be packing this basic, but chic jumpsuit to wear multiple ways while in London.  So if you see me, don't say I didn't tell you. LOL.  Since London will have a fall-ish climate then and I'm still obsessed with black, I just decided to play into it with an all black look.  Then I kept it simple for the other two looks.  

Style Notes:  Love this jacket, but the sun was really bright that day and made the coat take on an off black look...but note that it is jet black. The jumpsuit I got in a 3X. It's a stretch jersey and really comfortable.  The coat I got in a 3X and it's sold out. I bought it on clearance last spring and just held it in my closet.  That's how you get all the awesome deal on your fall/winter wardrobe for the next season. Shop that clearance from the previous season.

Wide Calf Boots for Fall

Tips for getting the best fit while shopping for your wide calf boot:
  • MEASURE your calves! Save yourself the headache of a return and measure your calves before ordering your boots. Not all wide calf boots are created equally and will range in width
  • Retailers that specialize in plus will generally have the widest of the wide calf boots.
  • If the boots you want are 1 to 1.5 inches smaller than your calf, if there is a stretch panel the boots can usually be stretched to fit. 
  • If wide calf boots are still too small try out boot bands. They are a cool extension for your boot to widen the boot, but also give a seamless look.

Just a little...

Hi my loves! I hope all has been well.  I had an awesome time in Atlanta. Thanks to all who came to my Atlanta Meet & Greet.  I'm back in the bay and to better weather and less humidity. LOL.  I figured I'd go a little sexy with one of my favorite pieces in my closet, my vest.  I skipped the shirt, taped my boobs and hit the town.  Sometimes small boobs can be fun too. 

Style Notes:  Ordered these shoes from Shoes of Prey where you design your own shoes, specify the size and width.  It's a little pricey, but love how awesome the material look.

The Budget Friendly Neutral

There's nothing more than I love a classic item with a twist.  I've been looking for a sleeveless trench forever and finally found one.  This was a weekend look that was super comfy, but still had that put together look.  For me, pairing a couple of neutral tones together is a way to make an outfit look expensive, even if it isn't. I actually got these pants from Cato online  (sold outat $15. 

Get this look Budgetnista style: This was a budgetnista look for me, but I'd like to help you save even more on this look. You can get this look for under $70, top, bottom, and tank.  You can find the pants here at Old Navy, 30% off with code GOODTIMES & free shipping which bring to pant to $26. Sub out my tank for this $10 Target tank. Finally, scoop up this sleeveless trench from Charlotte Russe that has 25% off the entire site today only which bring the jacket to $32.  The entire look ends up being around $68 (minus shoes). 

Style Notes:  I got the trench in a 3x.  Charlotte Russe has similar sizing to Forever21, so I always size up.  You can coax the collar into staying up by just ironing it with light starch straight up and not creasing it.
