How To Style Wide Calf Boots From Avenue

This is a sponsored post featuring boots from Avenue. All opinions expressed are my own. 

There is something about wearing boots that makes me feel like a fashion bad ass!  What is it about knee high boots that just makes me feel cool wearing them?  Not sure what it is, but since I was a little girl I have loved boots.  Every year my parents would buy me a pair of boots, I was always happy wearing my boots. So many pictures of me with boots, I need to find them and share! As I gotten older the love of boots had continued, however finding a pair that fits right has been a challenge. Its been a struggle to find a cute, comfortable wide calf boot...until now I didn't really wear knee high boots. Thanks to Avenue I found a pair of knee high, wide calf boots that fit and look great. Today me and 3 OC bloggers are sharing how to style wide calf boots.

Mad For Plaid - The Fab 40s


This our last Fab 40's collab post of the year, I am so grateful to have met more fashion bloggers over 40. I am very thankful to be able to collaborate with these awesome ladies every month. Hope to bring you more monthly Fab 40's post next year.  So here is Decembers theme chosen by Jennie, Plaid.  As she put it we are MAD for plaid this month. Being the holidays and winter time, plaid is a very appropriate theme. Plaid is a classic and we see variations of it every season.  I my self have been wearing plaid since I was a child. I use to love plaid skirt in my teens, in college I wore more plaid shirts and currently I even have a pair of plaid pants. I really wanted to wear those plaid pants for this theme, but couldn't find them!! Then I found an awesome plaid dress online, when I went to the website to buy it....guess what!  IT SOLD OUT! Ugh this theme should have been easy and I actually struggled a bit to come up with an outfit.

Macy's Celebrates Ugly Sweater Day

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

The holidays are here and what better way to celebrate than with Ugly Sweater Day!  Did you even know there such a thing. Wearing an ugly Christmas sweater use to be a Big NO NO! You know the kind of sweater, the one your grandma would knit for you or mom would buy for you to wear in the family holiday photos. Now ugly Christmas sweaters are popular and actually fun! People have parties to celebrate and wear those ugly sweaters. No need to fuss over what to wear for the holidays, I prefer to be comfy and cozy. So much easier to just wear a fun and festive ugly sweater for the holidays. Maybe you have a work party coming up or a family gathering. An ugly sweater is just the right thing to wear. You will be the hit of the party, or at least you will get tons of smiles and giggles from everyone. 

Macy's want you to join in on the fun with an Ugly Sweater Celebration. Come celebrate National Ugly Sweater Day at with a Free event. 



Grab your friends and family, put on those ugly sweaters and come join the fun.

LA Auto Show Day - #UntamedStyle Linkup



My father and oldest brother loved going to the Auto Show every year. I have so many memories of going with them to the LA Auto Show from a very young age. We would spend all day looking at the latest models and sitting in as many cars possible, dreaming of one day owning a brand new shiny car.  My brother and dad are no longer with us, and its been almost 20 years since I last attended an auto show. My BF's sister gave us tickets to attend the final weekend of the Auto Show. We decided to make a day out of it, spending time in Downtown LA and enjoying the Auto Show.  We took the bus from OC to LA, I really wanted to avoid driving to DTLA, I do so much driving all week long for work. Also parking is quite expensive in LA, so for just a few dollars we enjoyed a stress free ride to LA. The day turned out to be rainy and cold, so I was glad not to drive. By the time we arrived in LA the skies had cleared, all that was left was a crisp chill in the air. Perfect weather for a day in downtown LA.

OC Plus Bloggers Meet Up



Over the past 7 years since I started blogging, I've met many other bloggers. Mostly at events and conferences. Some have been local, living in the same state of just a few cities over. A few I became friendly with and would interact with online via social media.  Recently I met a group of bloggers who live in the same county and are also plus fashion bloggers. We formed a group on Facebook and decide to meet up just for fun. First meet up was in September to get to know each other and talk about our blogs and goals. We all hit it off and decided to have more meet ups. Its so refreshing to meet blogger you can relate to and connect with. This is what I was needing in my life, I came seriously close to quitting my blog at the beginning of the year. You can read about it here.  I decided to it stick out one more year and see how I can grow the blog and evolve.  Meeting bloggers who are local in the same niche and have similar goals has helped and given me new ideas and inspiration for the blog.
