Closet Comfort...

Denim Shirt-Old (Similar), Skirt-Leknuf, Shoes-Old(Similar), Sunnies-Target

Sometimes I find my closet to be extremely overwhelming. Me being a “shopaholic”, I have far more pieces than I know what to do with. I know there are far worse problems, so I won’t complain.

When I start to feel this way I rely on a few of my favorite pieces to get me through. Pieces that invigorate my senses and make me fall in love over and over again. Easy pieces that are effortless matches with everything else in my closet.  I like to pair my trusty favorites with an exciting or bright and colorful pieces that I have collected over the years.  This time I wore my favorite denim shirt with my Ankara skirt and leopard pumps.

 I was out and about wearing this look and I couldn’t help but twirl around smiling at everything. Usually that’s a clear indication that I Iove what I’m wearing. So does anyone else get overwhelmed by your closet? What do you do when you feel that way?

PopSugar OPI Hawaii Color Challenge Plus-Size Edition


Blazer- Eloquii(Sold out in this color), Pants- Eloquii, Necklace-Kara Ross, Shoes--DSW and Similar

Lately my wardrobe has seemed so void of color! Most of my looks have consisted of a lot of black, white and navy. So when I was invited to do the Plus-Size edition of PopSugar’s OPI Hawaii color challenge I jumped at the chance to wear something exciting and vibrant. So my chosen color was orange cream!

I bought this suit from Eloquii in hopes it would put me in a spring mood and it did not disappoint! If I am boing honest with y’all I was a little afraid that the color would be outrageous, but once I got it I realized it was orange perfection! Keeping the bright color theme going I paired the suit with a statement necklace and shoes that pulled everything together.

Joining me in this Challenge are 12 amazing bloggers! Please go and check out their looks:

So which bright color are you feeling right now?

Leopard Coat Love... The Spring Version

Jacket-Ann Taylor, T-Shirt-Old Navy(similar), Jeans-NYDJ, Shoes-Khols



One of the things I miss the most as the weather gets warmer is loss of outerwear. I love a good topper and the finished feeling it lends to any look. Have you ever thrown on jeans and t-shirt and felt like it wasn’t enough? Well throw on a jacket and see if that doesn’t make you feel more pulled together.

On a random late night shopping trip I found this light weight leopard jacket at Ann Taylor. I was ecstatic that they still had it in an XXL (Sorry they are sold out online now), and jumped all over it when they had a 40 off sale! I felt very grown up when it arrived, the material is amazing and I know I can wear it for so many years to come! We headed out to lunch and I threw this jacket over jeans and a t-shirt and I instantly felt polished and well dressed.

Does anyone else feel this way about outerwear or is it just me?  What makes you feel pulled together?
