Special thanks to Macy’s for sponsoring this post!

We are officially in the full swing of summer and I, for one, am so happy! I know, I know… I live in Los Angeles where it’s practically always summer weather (I’m talking 90 degree Christmas’s here), but I still long for these summer months because of all the incredible summer clothes! Today, I’m excited to be partnering with Macy’s to share the latest Tommy Hilfiger plus size summer collection, because 1.) the clothes are super cute and 2.) I’m finally tackling my fear of chino pants!

When I first saw that Tommy Hilfiger had launched plus sizes, I was thrilled to see such an iconic brand cater to us curvy girls! There are so many incredible dresses and polos in their summer collection, but the first thing that really caught my eye were these navy chino pants! I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been afraid to rock the chino look because I was scared they wouldn’t flatter my hips! Clearly, I was wrong! Look how great these look! I tried these babies on and was immediately impressed with the fit, the quality, and just how amazing they made me feel!

 

It may sound silly, but I really do believe there is power in your fashion choices! So often, we are told that we are too big, too small, too femme, to masculine, too extra, too…(you get the idea) to wear something! And that couldn’t be farther from the truth. It’s YOUR body, so YOU get to decide what kind of styles get to go on it! We are taught from an early age to wear clothes that flatter your body a.k.a. clothes that make you look smaller or more hourglass or closer to whatever beauty standard you are being asked to meet. I challenge you to prioritize wearing clothes that make you feel happy instead of clothes that make feel like you fit in! It’s so rewarding!

I decided to channel my inner prep girl and style these with this a classic striped button up, a nude pump, and some gold accents. For me, this outfit was all about showing off my new found love for chino’s and I thought the striped shirt was the perfect compliment. I kept it casual with quick front knot and a few unbuttoned buttons, but you could also tuck it in and add a belt and a blazer for a more polished look. What I love about these pants is that they will carry me into fall where I will definitely pair them with a chunky sweater and some booties! There are so many ways to style them and make them your own!

I am so happy that I was able to tackle my fear and fully embrace these Tommy Hilfiger chino pants! I know I’ll be wearing them over and over again! Okay, now it’s your turn! I want to know, how would you style them?

Spring Denim with Macy’s

Celebrity Pink Denim | Sponsored by Macy’s

The time has come! It’s time to put our winter coats in storage and slowly transition to our warmer weather wardrobe. It took a bit longer than we all hoped, but Spring has finally sprung and I, for one, am pretty hype about! I love dressing for Spring because it’s a perfect time to update your denim collection and who doesn’t want that?! Denim for spring isn’t necessarily groundbreaking *cue Miranda Presley voice*, but I do have a spring wardrobe go-to that has literally never failed me! I’ve partnered with my friends over at Macy’s to show off these amazing Celebrity Pink jeans and to share my spring favorite: white denim!

White denim is a spring staple for the versatility alone! You can create any look, vibe, or aesthetic that you want (okay maybe with the exception of a goth girl throwback)! One pair of jeans can take you from the mall to date night to church to the club. It’s all about finding the right pair of jeans!

So what do I look for in a good pair of white jeans? Well first and foremost, fit will always be the biggest factor in any shopping experience! I love that these jeans stretch and hug my curves in all the right places while still keeping shape throughout the day! I like to wear my jeans a little looser than average, but I definitely avoid any pair of jeans that is easily overstretched and made awkwardly baggy. These jeans held their fit for hours, providing stretch without losing their shape! Another thing that is super important when buying white denim is making sure that the fabric is thick enough and won’t turn see through in bright light! Who else has worn a pair of unexpectedly thin clothing only to discover too late that your whole butt is displayed for the world to see? Just me? Well, I didn’t have to worry about these jeans at all!

I had a blast styling these jeans two different ways! When you have good quality basics, styling is really about accessories. For my first look, I allowed the jeans to speak for themselves and kept my styling sweet and simple. A clean pair of white sneakers, a black and white striped tee, and an ankle cuff allows you to be comfy while still having that put together look! I wear my denim like this most days tbh, but sometimes you need to take it to the next level!

I was all about this pop of lavender for the second look! Lavender is a huge trend this spring and it looks great with the white denim. I decided to keep the black and white tee, switch up the shoes to these lavender slingback mules, add a suede envelope clutch to match; and viola, you’ve got a whole new look!

Your options really feel limitless once you step into a pair of these Celebrity Pink skinnies! How would you style your pair?
