Poolside Chillin’: My Favorite Plus-Size Swimsuits

Can you believe it’s already July? Insane, right? That means that unless you live in an awfully warm area, your days by the pool are numbered. Still, I thought I’d share a roundup of my favorite swimsuits for women with curves.

While there are quite a few online shopping destinations dedicated to plus-sized women, the amount of sites that offer swimwear are few and far between. I probably won’t be sporting any swimwear this summer—that’s a self-love/body positivity conversation for another day—but I hope that I can help make the search a little bit easier for some. (Comment below and let me know where you shop for curvy swimsuits, or which piece is your favorite!)

Silver & Gold

Merry Christmas, all! I hope your holiday was full of good food, hilarious family, amazing music and unforgettable presents. Mine sure was. I didn’t leave school until the 24th, so I was overjoyed to finally be home. And I thought I would share what I wore on this particularly holy night. My outfit was simple, comfortable and festive all at once. And I paired this natural style (a day-old, pinned-up, bantu knot-out) with red lips. I couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas. (more…)

I’m Coming Home Again

This past weekend was my school’s Homecoming, so I had to step it up and step out. (Little Known Fact: My university actually invented Homecoming! MIZ!) My friends and I went out Thursday and Friday night, and we had so much fun! (more…)

Candy-Coated Raindrops

Autumn is upon us. And the only thing I like more than the night we get to turn our clocks back is the fashion. The difference, though, between fall and winter (although I love them both equally) is that during the former, we’re just trying to bundle up a bit in chilly weather. We’re required to layer our outfits more, which means we have room to improvise with such lovely additives as socks, tights, cardigans, scarves, hats and outerwear. In winter, it’s all about survival. For that reason, I’ve compiled a few of my favorite kinds of jackets and coats for fall. I suggest you stock up on these before it gets too cold. Lucky for me, the sites where I found these pieces had already styled them a bit, so you and I both have a great vantage point to begin putting outfits together from. (more…)

Sierra Leone

sierraleone

Here’s my outfit for the day. I was in a ‘Sierra Leone’ kind of mood. I put on a pair of tan-colored skinny jeans by Forever 21+, my leopard print Target slippers and my denim shirt (from my late Grandpa). Nothing too fancy, nothing too fussy. Just a cozy pair of jeans, some quirky flats and one of my favorite button-ups.
