Even though we’re still dealing with blow after blow of snow storms here in Boston, I can’t help but daydream about swim season. Personally, I’ve had more than enough snow for a lifetime and I’m ready to slip into a bikini in hot weather. Who else has swimwear on the brain?
Simply Be, which happens to be a personal favourite, just relaunched their US website. For the first time ever, Simply Be is now creating exclusive collections for their US customers. Some of those lines include athleisure, festival and more. I don’t know about you, but I’m wildly excited about this news! Simply Be has dominated the UK market for years now and I’m incredibly happy to see them focus on their US customers!
Simply Be was founded in 1999 and caters to an audience of women in sizes US 6-32. I love showcasing stores that have such a wide size range, but sometimes its tough to find ones that align with my style and my values. I’m happy to say Simply Be covers all of those bases!
A few years ago, I was totally bonkers for berets. I owned one in just about every colour, but quickly realized I had no real occasion or outfit to suit them. Now, berets are back in style and I’ve been kicking myself for giving my impressive collection away. So, I took to Amazon fashion to replenish my stock and found a few for an incredibly affordable price. My only major gripe about an old trend coming back in style is how ridiculously expensive it suddenly becomes. I wasn’t about to pay $20 per hat. Thank God for Amazon Fashion!
While shopping, I decided to snag some clothes because well, that’s just who I am. Amazon fashion can be really scary to buy from but also a great resource for hidden gems. So long as you know how to search for what you’re specifically looking for, read the reviews and compare prices, its a goldmine.
Maybe you already know this, but I have a hard time styling purple. I literally have no idea why, but my brain just can’t compute the right way to put it into an outfit. However, when I spotted this Curvy Sense duster, I felt very compelled to give it a whirl. As it turns out, I might not be as hard as I anticipated. Additionally, it’s no different than styling other pastels. Who woulda thunk it?
This past weekend, I celebrated 5 years with my boyfriend. Previous to him, my longest relationship was 6 whole months. Back then, I thought that was pretty long and I always prided myself on knowing a lot about relationships. I felt I knew the jist of what it meant to be a good girlfriend, supportive partner and all around maintaining a healthy relationship. Boy, was I wrong! In the past 5ive years, I’ve learned a whole lot about what it means to be in a relationship. I’ve learned the difference between settling and compromising, and so much more. Since five years is such a huge milestone for me, I thought I’d touch base on the things I’ve learned. If you’d like to know what I have learned out of being in a long term/long distance relationship, continue reading!
PS, I know a lot of the photos are quite old but Gil and I only take crappy phone selfies together now and I figured I’d share some of the really nice ones.
Do you ever spend days planning an outfit in your mind…. or is that just me? That’s precisely what I did for a solid week (or two?) with this little number. I’ve had my heart set on styling my Be Nice sweater in an actual outfit since my Galentine’s Day themed photoshoot. Thankfully, the whole look translated perfectly in real life!
I’m back with another business appropriate outfit today! You guys loved my approach to plus size fashion workwear, so I figured I’d revisit the idea. As I mentioned, my work day looks a little different but I’ve always felt that being in an office space shouldn’t limit your creativity with fashion. Sometimes, its just adding bold accessories or adding some colour. Workwear doesn’t have to always be drab, mundane or boring.
