Happy Thursday beauties,

Labor Day is around the corner. It’s unbelievable how time is flying by! Didn’t we welcome August like just yesterday? In other news, what do you guys have planned for the memorial day weekend? My kids are going back to school the following week, so we plan not to overwhelm them with too many activities that weekend, so it’s most likely going to be a fun yet relaxing one; and then get everyone in the back-to-school mood.

Whatever plans you have, here’s an effortless chic look you can sport for a good time with family and friends. I particularly love this top, because it’s cute and the fit is flattering.. I also love that the straps are adjustable! That bonus feature is very necessary if you’re generously made like me! 😉 Overall, this is a fun and cute top that can be dressed up or down to suit diverse events!

What do you think? XO

As always, thanks for stopping by; and have a great rest of your week!



Nothing beats an organic cotton loungewear and this robe and shelf bra camisole set from Wear PACT didn’t disappoint. The robe is amazingly soft and comfortable and the quality holds up to my expectation. I love that the shelf bra camisole has adjustable straps. I can’t tell you enough how soft and comfortable these loungewear and underwear are! I love them; and I don’t think I’ll look back! 😉

plus-size-swimming-pool-lookHappy Saturday beauties, 

Just making a quick stop here to share this poolside look with you. (Similar HERE) I’ve worn this a few weeks ago when the weather was in the hundreds and all I want to do is find myself in water or near water. 🙂 Can you all believe that Summer is almost gone though?! 

As much as I love Fall, I’m not sure if I’m ready to say good bye to Summer. I’m planning on spending some more time in the pool, soaking in the sun, so I hope we get some more summer weather before we transition into the Fall. – Anyways, I hope this makes a good weekend read. You can shop my look via the links under the post. XOXO

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know that belt bags or fanny packs are the new women’s favorite accessories. – Just like most trends, it’s just the old “things” making a comeback; and it looks like we’re here for it. Almost every store sells them. From Target to Zara or Brands name like Gucci, Yves St Laurent, Fendi etc



What’s fun about these belt bags is that they come in different style, colors, and prints; and they are so versatile. This hands-free hip bag lets you keep your essentials all within easy reach; and this one has a slim outer pocket which is perfect for your phone, keys, or any other items you like to keep handy. It’s great for a day of shopping or walking through the park. It’s the right mix of fashion and function.


How-to-wear-fanny-packs-or-belt-bagUse them as a belt on any of your bottoms or wear them over tops, jackets or dresses. Or you can also wear them across your torso or over your shoulder. I mean, go ahead and be creative with it! 🙂 However you choose to style your belt bag or fanny pack, just remember to be comfortable in your skin and wear it with confidence. After all, confidence is your best accessory.
