Style Has No Size | Versatile Smock Dress

March 12, 2019

I'm really excited to introduce you to a fun series I'm doing with my friend, Elly Brown of Uptown With Elly Brown. While Elly is a legit, full-time fashion blogger, I also have a closeted affinity for styling my outfits. Admittedly, as I gained weight over the last few years, I lost some of my passion for fashion. I have had trouble figuring out how to dress my plus-sized self, and sometimes it's downright daunting. That's why I was so…

Fearlessly Independent: 32 Life Lessons From A 32 Year Old Life Enthusiast

October 9, 2018

I turned 32 this year. That seems weird. However, it doesn’t seem weird in the way you think it might. I don’t have a problem being in my thirties. In fact, I looked forward to it for years! So many people have told me that this decade will be one of self acceptance, stability, and introspection. So far? They were right. My twenties were a whirlwind. Life changed for me every five minutes it seemed like. I always landed on…

Best Swimsuits For Curvy Women

May 2, 2018

Ladies! I’m getting a lost of requests for the best swimsuits for curvy women. This post is for you. I’ve been posting a lot of swimwear lately (and there is still more to come). I will update this post all throughout swimsuit season, so don’t worry if you don’t see something you like, yet. I’m “plus size”, on the tall side, and busty. I also have kind of a long torso. Finding a good suit is always a challenge! I…

Building Our Tribe | Wine Country Blogger Brunch

August 15, 2017

I have said before that the best part about blogging is undoubtedly the relationships I have made. I was nervous when I moved to Wine Country that I would have a hard time connecting with a blogger community here. When you work from home in such a specific industry, it’s so important to have a tribe of women who understand the ins and outs of the “biz” and can be a valuable support and sounding board. Professional bloggers are usually,…

Maternity Style | Summer Staples

June 23, 2017

It’s always hard for me to decide how far to go with maternity clothes, especially in the summer. I don’t want to spend a ton of money on a (relatively) small chunk of time, but if the piece is something I will wear all the time- then I will do it. I wanted to share twelve things that I have lived in during this summer pregnancy and give a quick review of why I love them. Many of them are…

A Wine Country Maternity Photo Shoot

June 12, 2017

I just got home from my 32 week OB appointment. They were talking birth plans and fetal presentation and GBS testing… and I’m like is this real life? We are almost there? My LAST pregnancy is almost over. I can’t say I’m sad about it, but it is rather bittersweet. I’ve never done a formal maternity photo shoot before. Besides a few mirror selfies and unflattering candid photos while pregnant with Grayson or Charlie, the memories of the bump are…

How To Make Achievable Goals for the New Year

January 19, 2017

This post was sponsored by JC Penney, however all opinions are mine. #SoWorthIt It’s been years since I have made a formal list of New Years Resolutions. Sure, I like a clean start and I love making goals, but something about the word “resolution” just seems so, well, resolute. The key to incorporate change is to set achievable goals. For instance, if I make a goal for the New Year to go to the gym for an hour a day,…

5 Things To Simplify In The New Year

December 26, 2016

2016 is almost a wrap! Thank goodness it is, because I think most of us feel like it’s been one for the books. So many public figures taken way too soon, and so many of our personal lives have been on the struggle bus. In a world that seems to keep spinning faster and faster with no promise of slowing down, I am constantly looking for ways to make things less chaotic. A simpler life is a happier life. Now…

5 Reasons I Can’t Wait For Fall

August 25, 2016

PinkBlush gave me this dress in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Who else is SO ready for cooler temps? I am dying over here in this Georgia heat. Historically, we finally start to get some cooler weather toward the end of September or the beginning of October. Only one more month! Fall is my favorite season. Yes, the temperatures are awesome, but there’s a special nostalgia about Fall. So many great memories from my life…

In My Closet | The Leather Clutch

August 15, 2016

This post was sponsored by Urban Southern. All opinions are my own. Have you picked up on my brown leather obsession yet? Again, it’s a look and feel that I just can’t get enough of. I love that handcrafted leather is 100% unique to it’s owner. I also love that a beautiful brown leather literally matches anything in my closet. Yes, anything; even black.…

Comfortable + Confident = Beautiful

August 13, 2016

Trying to feel confident and comfortable in my own skin has been a bit of a battle since having Charlie. While the baby weight just fell off with Grayson, it’s been more challenging to tackle this time around. With every baby, my body transforms again…and again. From pregnancy, to breastfeeding to hormone imbalances, It’s almost like I have to shop for a new person every six months. I have a suspicion that many other women can relate. I literally have…

In My Closet | A Little Black Dress for Date Night

July 22, 2016

TGIF! Since it’s Friday evening, I thought I would post a date night look with a classic LBD. Now that I have had two babies, my definition of a little black dress has shifted somewhat, but that doesn’t mean I can’t wear something that’s chic WHILE being modest and comfortable.…

In My Closet | Gladiators and Fringe

July 19, 2016

Some of these items were given to me in exchange for my honest review. This post also contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own. I have a habit of denouncing up and coming trends and then eating my words. Fringe is one of those trends! At first, I was like- nah- I’m not trying to be a cowboy… hippy… whatever is happening here, but lo and behold- I fell in love. Don’t get me wrong, I am not overdoing…
