Labored White

I'm don't go by a lot of fashion rules these days, so when I saw this white dress I didn't hesitate. It's so comfortable, simplistic and minimal that I knew it belonged with me.   (Sidetone: This would work great for any of maternity ladies out there - There's plenty of room and it's super comfy).  These days I'm into less being more.  I love how keeping it simple gives off that effortless chic look.  

Style Notes:  I added a skinny belt with this dress to give it a little shape.  I would wear with or without the belt, but without it gives you more of that Kanye minimal relaxed look. This dress is in a size 22.  The fabric is a little sheer, so you will need to wear a foundation underneath.  Keep in mind that the slits on the sides do go high if you decide to belt. It wasn't anything that I thought was too revealing, but you'll want to be mindful of that.  My shoes are from Shoes of Prey, they are a website that allows you design your own shoe and carry large and wide widths.

If I was fat Nicole Richie...

Whenever I think of someone who gets 70s trends right in a modern way, I think of Nicole Richie. I adore her personal style, the way she reinvented herself, polished her look is something to be admired. She is one of my personal style icons.  I decided to do these jeans a few different ways.  It's been a while since I've done wide leg jeans, but these 70s inspired ones are a perfect addition to my wardrobe.  

Style Notes:  I got these jeans in a 28.  Just because I was scared how they were going to fit. I would rather too big than too small. I could have sized down 1 or 2 sizes.  I did have them tailored a bit for fit, because of that. They have a lot of stretch and just in general have a relaxed fit.  The boho top is in a 3X.  It's a peplum top that has a cute button up back. It looks great tucked in or left out. 

Boho Top: Charlotte Russe, Jeans - SimplyBe, Blazer - Asos, Cardi - H&M (straight size in store purchase), White Shirt - ASOS, Round Sunnies - Garnerstyle, Shoe - Sole Society (similar), Square Sunnies - Marc Jacobs (sold out), Aviators - Gucci (sold out)

Fall Love

I must admit, embracing the 70s trend that is everywhere this fall is a little hard for me. It's just not my personal style, but I slipped into Nordstrom and found some pieces that I loved that are fun and representative of that era, but in a modern way.  It also was  nice to be able to try on clothing is a swanky Nordstrom dressing rooms.   Anyways, I'm excited to be able to pull off the suede-esk skirt.  

Style Notes:  Of all the brands at Nordstrom, Vince Camuto is one of my favorite. The fit is really nice. This skirt is a size 20w and has stretch, the top is a size 2X.

Fall Home Decor Makeover

Home fashions are my favorite thing about Ross.  You can find items to update your place very inexpensively, because who wants to spend $25 on a throw pillow? Anyways, I did a quick update to my living spaces for the fall season and everything came from Ross and I did it for all under $150.    I live in California and the seasons don't change that drastically, so I wanted to gently introduce a few fall colors, but still keep it bright like California is.  I brought in gold, mustard yellow, and a turquoise to tweak the mood of the room.  I found this fun lighted "C" & Eiffel tower to brighten up my office area. The burnt orange candles sticks and deep yellow candles set the mood. LOL.  I'm in love with the gold accent bowl & cream puffs adorning my dining table.  It gives the table a clean, but upgraded look.  The fun things about updates is that you don't have to chuck everything you have, you can work with what's already in the space and add to.  That keeps it inexpensive, but makes it look like you've really transformed the room.
