My Perfect Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits. The sheer thought of them makes me squirm. Every time I buy a jumpsuit, I try it on and it's never long enough in the torso. It cuts in my lower stomach and just does NOT look good. Plus, they're usually hard to get on and off by yourself. As someone who drinks at least a gallon of water a day, this is problematic. That is, until this...

OOTD: Breaking Rules

Hi! It's your friendly size 26ish blogger here, sharing a quick outfit of the day (wearing it as I type this.) This style of outfit is one that I admire on other people, yet avoid on myself. It looks casual chic, and is ridiculously comfortable. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. If you click through a link and make a purchase, I’ll...

Plus Size Gingham Guide

Gingham is everywhere right now and I'm here for it! I remember a couple of summers ago looking for a gingham dress or something similarly summery and not being able to find anything in plus. All of my favorite retailers have gingham in a variety of styles and colors. I couldn't miss gingham if I tried! At the end of this post, I have over 20 total...

Mannequins and Fat Fitness

For the past couple of days, I've sat on my hands as divisive discussion whirled around the news that a Nike store put a plus size mannequin on display at its London flagship store. A writer for The Telegraph wrote some particularly nasty things about it. I am not going to link to the piece because I don't want to give them any more direct traffic than...

Vibrant Wallflower

Have you ever been so drawn to something, thinking “that's my style, I must have it” only to get it and then have second doubts. Not because the outfit isn't your style or isn't gorgeous, but because you worry about much you'll stand out in it. This can't-miss-me dress gave me those feelings. Off the Shoulder Puff Sleeve dress c/o ELOQUIICoupon...

Last week, one of my favorite retailers ever launched a campaign called #MODELTHAT. “ELOQUII has always been a brand dedicated to their customer, spotlighting women with extraordinary style accomplishing extraordinary...

In Bloom in eShakti

This dress came to me in a recent Gwynnie Bee box. I've been a GB member for over 7 years now (started when they were in beta) and so many of my day-to-day styles are from there but you don't see them that much! I loved this eShakti dress so much that it made me do a double-take of the eShakti line. Disclosure: This is NOT a sponsored post,...

Mental Health Month

This post is something I've wanted to get out for a bit, and it seems fitting since May is Mental Health Month. Talking about my history of clinical depression, anxiety, ADHD, and insomnia isn't intended to make anyone concerned or to look for sympathy: it's simply something I've dealt with since I went to see my first psychologist when I was...

The best part about these 3 dresses is that you can wear them to Thurby, Oaks, Derby, and beyond by styling them different ways. 3 Derby Outfits from CatherinesDisclosure:...
