    All I want for Christmas..

    Whoa, can you believe the big day is just around the corner? I, for one, am still rushing around to get everything I’ll need for Christmas but I welcome the stress. Shopping for Christmas is one of my FAVOURITE things but lets also be real, receiving ain’t so bad either. I’m lucky to already get so many things my heart desires throughout the year, but I’d be a liar if I didn’t say I’m lusting after a few things this year. Since I haven’t done this in awhile, I thought I’d compile a list of things I want for Christmas. Be warned, this isn’t entirely focused on fashion!

    The Last Holiday

    Word on the street is that Santa already has this in his bag for me (aka I already bought it for myself). I haven’t seen this film in YEARS but I remember loving it so much when I did. First off, it has Queen Latifah, so how could you possibly go wrong? On top of that, most of it takes in Prague, which evidently is gorgeous. There’s an incredible cast, its really funny and I just have a major fondness for it. Now if only Santa would hurry up and deliver my package before I leave for Boston tomorrow..

    Plus Size Friendly Boots

    Yesterday, we had our first official snowfall and I’m elated. I love this time of year, or at least until December 25th, that is. The first snow is always so magical and I genuinely look forward to it every year. However, I don’t always look forward to the necessary change in footwear. To be entirely honest, I dread my lack of my options when it comes to plus size friendly boots. Much like winter coats, boots have started to catch up with fashion trends and needs. They aren’t those drab, ugly (but lets face it, warm) boots from your childhood anymore. They’re actually stylish and wearable! So, I figured I’d round up some of the pairs I’ve been lusting after. Prepare yourself, because I promise you, these boots ARE made for walking (I had to)!


    Brown Knee High Boots / Sweater Knit Boots / Genuine Suede Knee High Boot

    Torrid: Could I really make a list of plus size friendly boots without mentioning Torrid? They’re usual my go-to plus size friendly boots. I just know I’m going to walk (hehe) away with a pair of boots that look great, but also stand the test of time In fact, most of my Torrid boots have lasted numerous winters! Above is just a very, very small look at the ginormous collection Torrid has to offer. Ps, there’s a sale on boots right now, too! You don’t want to miss out on this, you guys!

    7 Practical & Fashion Plus Size Coats

    Keeping warm in the winter used to look a little bit like this for me; an ugly, but practical oversized jacket that almost always ruined whatever outfit I had underneath. I couldn’t wait to take it off whenever I got to my location. Even then, I’d have this big, honking thing on my arm all night and I just loathed it. For a very long time, I would dread the colder months because of the plus size winter coats alone. Nothing ever looked the way I wanted, both on and off my body. Thankfully though, plus size coats have come a long way since my youth (or even 5 years ago). A lot more clothing companies are putting their best foot forward and making plus size coats we can both practically wear in the cold and feel fashionable in. Now, I find myself lusting over plus size coats more than ever before. Below, you’ll find 7 different practical and fashion plus size coats I’m lusting over. Just for the fun of it, I’ve styled each coat with other outerwear (ie: gloves, scarf, hat) as well!

    Coat / Gloves / Scarf

    I’ve been eyeing this plus size coat for a really, really long time now and even though its sold out in my size, I can still fantasize about how I’d wear it. Doesn’t it just look so precious BUT also warm and cozy? Pairing it with this faux fur pink scarf and brown gloves sounds like a dream!


    Coat / Gloves / Earmuffs

    I can personally attest to how incredible this plus size coat is because your girl owns this beauty! The faux fur is so cozy, but its also the warmest and most comfortable coat I currently own. Protip: size up in this plus size coat because I found it runs a little bit small.


    Jacket / Scarf / Gloves

    I’m such a fan of this jacket because it looks like your basic moto jacket but its also practical as hell. If you take a look at the website, you’ll quickly notice that it looks like a quilted blanket up close. I love that its multi-tone black as well, because that makes it easier to style black on it. I love the idea of wearing a huge, colourful scarf with this and since its black, there’s so many options!

    Trench Coat / Gloves / Scarf

    I couldn’t go without mentioning this Lark & Ro trench coat because it truly has changed my life. Again, I do own this plus size coat so I can personally tell you how incredible it is. Whether you get black or beige, classic black gloves and a scarf will be the best accessory. Protip: This coat runs HELLA large so size down. Its also incredible long, so be mindful of that if you do decide to buy it!


    Jacket / Gloves / Hat

    Now, some might fight me on how practical this coat is but hear me out first. It’s a reversible jacket, which you’ll see by clicking the link above, which means more ways to wear it! Personally, I’d almost always wear the faux fur side out but imagine that fur being your lining. How comfortable and WARM would you be? I’d pair this with accessories that were a bit more over the top, yanno, to match the feel of the coat and all!

    Coat / Hat

    One of the major reasons I love this coat so much is because it comes in so many different colours. Above are just two of the options you get, but there’s five total to pick from. This coat looks heavy, comfortable and warm but incredibly stylish at that. Pair it with a cute pom pom beret, and you’ve got yourself quite a look!

    Coat / Scarf

    Another coat I’m lucky enough to own and personally vouch for! I own this beauty in stone (which is sold out online) and I have no been able to stop wearing it since I put it on my body. Its the comfiest, warmest coat ever AND it looks hella good on the body too. One of my favourite aspects of it, though, has to be the giant faux fur hood. I’m telling you, there’s just nothing quite like the feeling of having this one.


    Thats it for my practical yet fashionable plus size coat list, you guys! I could go on and on and on but I didn’t want to overwhelm you all. What are some of your favourite plus size coats this season? Let me know in the comments below!

    Autumn Must-Haves

    Now that I have officially put an end to my summer looks, it’s high time I started to really dive into fall clothing. As mentioned many times, I’m a sucker for autumn fashion. Just yesterday, I put up my Fall Favourites tag of 2017 and mentioned my favourite clothing styles of the season. Mustard, burgundy and plaid are some of the classics but I felt an urge to really narrow down some must haves for the season. If you’d like to see my top picks in fashion for this fall, read more!
