A Thick Girls closet 2016 year in review
Hey Loves,

We made it! 2016 is coming to close and if you’re like me, you’re 100% looking forward to 2017. Now we all know that 2016 was rough on a very grand scale we lost a lot of amazing people; Prince, Muhammed Ali etc. We elected an orange guy as President and so much more. But to be honest with you guys my 2016 was really awesome and I couldn’t more grateful for every single blessing of this year. So this post is just to look back on some of my favorite highlights of my 2016!

Plus Size Outfit; Laid Back

Hey Loves,

Sometimes you’re moving around running errands, or you’re heading to your favorite coffee shop to get some work done. You like to be comfortable, but still stylish of course.

This choker sweater from Rosegal is fun with a touch of edge. It comes in 4 other colors as well (Black, Burgundy, Mustard, & Olive)


Pair it with these River Island skinny jeans with sequin patches. It’s a perfect way to get your touch glam.


You know if you’re running around you need to be in a pair of sneakers. I’m always a fan of the Original Adidas Superstars.


A good bucket bag is a great way to be stylish without being over the top. It’s to throw on over your shoulder and head. This French Connection bucket bag is a great option and it’s on sale!


Complete the look with these cute Beats By Dre wireless bluetooth headphones and a pair of sunnies. It doesn’t matter the time of the year, sunglasses are a must.


Happy Shopping loves & Happy Holidays

Hey Loves,

Need something cute and professional-ish. I thought this idea was cute. Fun and easy to wear to the office. Printed pants don’t have to be daunting if you pair with neutral colors. Unfortunately the shirt is sold out…but the rest of the look is available.

Happy Shopping loves. See you in my next post.

Plus Size Outfit; Simple & Easy

Hey Loves,

This look unintentionally celebrates the fact that River Island does have a super chic and fashion forward plus line. If you’re looking for a quick and easy look, you can never go wrong with a blazer and skinny jeans. Keep your accessories simple and let the entire outfit speak for itself. 
Happy Shopping.

Fall Poncho

Hey Loves,
Fall in Jersey & NY has been über shifty. One day we’re sweating and the next day you’re wanting to wear 5 layers of clothes. This outfit I happen to wear on one of our chillier days. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I had the opportunity to host plus size fashion presentation at Bloomingdale’s. It was an amazing experience. For the event, I wanted to be chic but comfortable.

Poncho: Bloomingdales| Top: Target| Jeans: Fashion to Figure| Booties: Fashion to Figure

I can’t lie, this Sioni poncho kept me quite warm, even when shooting this look. I paired it with a black tunic top because I wanted the muted color palette to pop, so instead of wearing a white turtle neck, I opted for the black. This turtleneck I bought about 3 years ago from target. You all know I love getting use out of my basics.
This Sioni brand is a private label for Bloomingdales. Which means it is exclusive to them as a store. And for $118 I think it is worth the purchase. Because I certainly plan on getting tons of wear out of this poncho. SOOOOOOO get use to it now lol. This poncho also comes in a black & white color palette as well. 
If you watched my fall shoe lookbook on my youtube channel, you should remember these Fashion to Figure fringe booties. I have been gravitating to them more and more lately. I figured you can never go wrong with a little touch of fringe.

What is one of your favorite fall looks? Let me know in the comments. Happy shopping and I’ll see you in my next post.
