The Je ne sais quoi

A Guide To A Stylish Plus Size Life

Outfit Links: Dress | Shoes | Earrings (All Care of Lane Bryant)

Can you believe it's almost Summer?!? I can't even believe I'm typing this! Honestly the change of the weather has brought me out of my winter funk, but that's another blog post. I feel refreshed and renewed. I've switched out my closet from winter to spring/summer and purged. Honestly I don't remember the last time I felt this good!

As I was perusing Lane Bryant for new looks, this super cute stripe dress popped up and it was an instant purchase. When I opened the package it was instant love. The dress fit's perfectly! Since I'm 5'7 it a little bit more midi fit on me. It's beyond comfortable and the smocking in the back provides such a great fit. I am between a size 20 and 22 and the 20 fit perfectly. Ohhh and did I mention it has pockets?!?!? I paired it with a flatform wedge to gem hoops to create a perfect Summer look.

To kick off this season I'm hosting a Summer Kick-Off Party at Lane Bryant Midtown Village in Tuscaloosa this weekend! Come by Saturday, May 4 from 2 to 4 and I will help you give you my summer style tips! Stop by and see me!

What are you ready for this season?!

Thanks for reading!


Thank you for partnering with me Lane Bryant!


It doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, I’m always searching for the perfect pair of jeans. You know, a pair that’s comfortable, but not too stretchy. A pair that is perfectly distressed but not too distressed. A pair that has the right coloring for business but can easily be worn for causal wear. So as you can see my standards are wee bit high, but I spend a lot time in jeans so I want them to comfortable. And at one point plus-size denim wasn't the easiest to find, so when I find a pair I love I buy multiple pair of jeans!

When Lane Bryant asked me to partner them on their latest denim drop, I was all for the chance to try a new pair of jeans. I chose the Power Pocket Super Stretch Skinny Jean and I am not at all disappointed. The jeans met every one of my requirements, comfortable, not too stretchy with excellent structure. A perfect pair of jeans for work, running errands or heading for a night out. I paired them with this green utility jacket that works perfectly for the upcoming spring and summer months.Oh and this tank that I have on under this jacket was so comfortable that I promptly doubled back and purchased more of them in a few colors. You can shop the entire look here: Jacket | Top | Jeans | Shoes | Earrings .

That’s not all folks! This Saturday in Tuscaloosa I am hosting a denim event! From 2-4 PM I will be in the Midtown Village Lane Bryant store discussing all things denim and fashion to anyone who will listen. Want me to style you? Come see me! Let’s find you the perfect pair of denim! I can’t wait to see everyone!!!

Hello from Vacation! I’m working with Babble Boxx to bring you a few new items that will makeover and transform the ways that you use everyday products! 

Hands down these Earth Brand sneakers are the most comfortable women’s shoes that I’ve worn in a long time. I can’t begin to tell you how well cushioned these were for my wide feet.  Personally I have a hard time finding sneakers that are supportive for my foot, most of them are so narrow. But not these they were so comfortable. Each Earth Brand shoe is inspired by their founder, Anne Kalso, who thought that wellness begins from the ground up! Earth Brand also plants a tree with each shoe purchase. Head over to their website to check these out

If I’m being honest, I was terrified to try contact lenses. I’ve been avoiding them since I got glasses, but I don’t like touching my eye or dealing with anything that have to do with my eye. But the Aveo lenses are a game changer. They are extremely soft and fit my eye easier than I thought possible. They also seemed larger than the average contact lenses.  Aveo contact lenses wants to change your experience not just how you order them, but also how they fit into your life. Aveo is a subscription service in which you can set up your monthly order of contact lenses that come straight to your door. The service is less than $1 a day and you get free shipping, free first month! I was throughly impressed with the service!  Get your first box here

The last item in my box was this Maidenform shaper is beyond comfortable! I’ve been searching for a shaper that is soft, with a few delicate details to smooth my body out and this is perfect. I also wore it under dresses and t-shirts to use as a bralette. We also know the invention of power mesh has changed the shape wear game up. Gone are the days that I feel like I’m struggling in my shape ware. This shaper has a cooling fabric and you can wear your own bra! I always hated finding a shaper that accommodated my body and my boobs and this one did for sure! Check it out here

Trying new products is always fun, but trying new products that bring a improvement to my life is even better! 

Stay tuned for new post in the next week! I can't wait to share fall content with you!
