December is here, can you believe it?? This month is the perfect time to spend time with family. I love quality time, with work and life getting into the way, quality time doesn’t happen as often as it should. Hello everyone! Today my sister, my husband and I have teamed up to bring you this fun little shoot. A little fall fashion inspiration for you. Even though it is December, it’s still toasty in California. We got all dolled up and went out and just went with it. We had so much fun taking these pictures! We hope that you enjoy them.
I would like to point out the fact that my husband took these photos. If you want to ask someone to take your photos for you, but not sure what they will say, just ask. They may surprise you, I never thought that he would even consider it. Not only did he take my pictures, but he slayyyedddd these photos. DONE!
Our hats are from Charlotte Russe. I love this photo, Sierra is so silly. Enjoy your sister if you have one. They may annoy the hell out of you, but they are your backbone. She makes me laugh and can make me cry at the same time. I can honestly say that she is my best friend. I couldn’t imagine a life without her.
My top is from Torrid, this is seriously one of my favorite shirts. It’s so comfortable and easy to move in. I love my light washed denim shirt!Sierra’s top is a cute flow blouse from Forever 21. If you have ever shopped at Forever 21, then you know that it is very affordable. If you haven’t made your way there yet, then you should. There is a wide selection of styles and price ranges. I couldn’t find the shirt on the site, but you should still go take a look!
Remember to enjoy life, smile and relax. Don’t stress over something that isn’t worth it. I learned that the hard way. Besides, it’s way more fun to be worry free.
I would like to thank my baby sister for being featured in my post, and my husband for taking my photos. I love you both from the bottom of my heart.
I don’t know about you, but I am constantly complaining about not having any cute shirts. If you are like me and live in California, it has been hot since February. Yesterday I decided to pick up a couple of summer tops and found a few other things along the way. I hope that you enjoy!
As I am walking through the mall, I think to my self “you need to buy clothes with patterens!” If you know me than you would know that I wear a lot of black. Black is slimming, easy to find and goes with everything, most of you can agree with me. I just recently went to a wedding and wore a gorgeous romper with fun colors and patterens on them. We are all at dinner and my Aunt Cindy tells me, “You should wear patterns more often, they look good on you.” When my aunt gives you a compliment, you take it. She is a very opinionated person and is not scared to tell you that you look horrible. So, when I walk into Old Navy, guess what I found? This dress is bright and has cool patterns on them, just what I was looking for! 20$ not so bad, I figured that I could wear it for special occasions. I love clothes that don’t require me to wear pants.
The next top that I picked up, of corse, is a black tank top. I know that I said that I wanted something different, but come on, it was half off and super cute! Can you blame me? Also from Old Navy, they are killing it on the sales right now.
As I am making my way to the register and telling myself that those two items are plenty, I just happen to stumble upon another sales rack. I found this pretty bluish, greenish tank. Guess how much, come on you can do it. Four freaking dollars, shut up, I had to get it! Very happy with my purchases and moving on to the next store.
For me it is hard to find clothes that are affordable. I like to online shop but hate waiting for them to get here (I am very impatient). If you are looking for a good plus size online store, you should check out Society Plus, they always have sales and deals. A lot of plus size clothes stores make clothes that are not so cut and all I can this is, “I am fat, not old.” I may be big but I also like to look cute and they have a lot of trendy items. I am not a little person and my town does not have very many plus size shops. That being said, we have a Forever 21 in our mall that carries sizes above the “average” sizes. With it being summer time and all, the swim suits are on the shelves. I am proud to be my size and everything, but I am not comfortable strutting around in a bikini. For those of you who do, I give you a high five! I envy you, but that just isn’t who I am. I start thinking to myself, “I did buy a few tank tops and my family HATES when you can see bra straps. If I buy a fun colored swim top, I can wear it in replace of a bra and they can’t get mad, right?” Done deal, it was $10 and pretty much is another bra and I always need as many of those as I can get. It’s bright, it’s fun and it looks good under all of those tanks.
Last top I picked up is the grey one on the far right. This one I didn’t need, but it was ridiculously cute and it goes well with the swim top. Damn, I am one hell of a negotiator.
In need of a new face powder brush, I just happened to walk into Icing and remembered that I have a punch card for them. Spend 20$ get 10$ off, I found a new brush, a phone case and pore strips all for 10$. Amazing, I know.
My feet hurt and this mall is really hot, time to go home. My Hunny is hungry and so am I, being the nice person that I am, I grab us some pizza. When I finally get home, I checked the mail just to discover that my Kylie Cosmetics Metallic Matte Liptsticks have came in the mail! Yesterday might have almost been the best day ever. Great deals AND pizza?! I plan on creating a fun look with those lippies soon, keep a look out!
I hope that my mini haul has inspired all of you to get some shopping done. I hope to read your hauls soon. Let me know in the comments which item is your favorite. Don’t forget to follow me on social media, I like making new friends.
Let’s be friends!
