OUTFIT OF THE DAY #81: The Golden Rules
Happy Fatshion Friday loves 🙂 With the Fall season approaching rapidly I wanted to give you babes my golden rules to transitioning your waredrobe from summer to fall.
Rule #1 : Thou Shall Layer: Tanks , Camisoles, and short sleeves shirts can be layered over a long sleeve shirt or turtle neck. Short sleeves can also be layered under cardigans, blazers or sweaters. Add leggings or tights under short skirts and dresses.
Rule #2: Thou Shall Play Up Colors : Play up the darker shades in your summer prints like I did with this look.
Rule #3: Thou Shall DIY: Get creative ! Dye your light spring and summer colored clothes a darker tint. Whites to Nude. Yellow to Mustard. Pink to Red. Purple to Eggplant.

OOTD #78: On Day 1 of the TCF Style Expo I wore a leopard print button up shirt with cold shoulder cut outs paired with a burnt orange circle skirt for the day event. I accessorized look with Betseyville by Betsey Johnson black bow sandals and glitter leopard purse shaped like lips.
I purchased this dress at the expo from LYfeStylzPlus’s boothe. The gold lace design initially caught me eye by the long train and the stretch scuba fabric sold me on it. Dress featured long sleeves, body con skirt with an floor length train attached the back, it also had flyaways peplum style right at the waist. The short length flattered my legs and the flyaways flattered my hips. I absolutely loved this dress, the long train made me feel like royalty.
With 60 days left until Summer is over I’m bringing you babes an update of last year’s post 38 Brands Who Sell +Size Swimwear . This list contains a fit for every style, shape, and budget. You can shop online or go try on the swimsuits in store. Whether you’re looking for a cover-up, monokini, bikini, tankini or just beach accessories this list has tons of options for you. Some of these brands offer up to 7x (38w) so let’s dive in ! When shopping swimwear make sure to check out measurements charts, if it’s been awhile since you’ve purchased a swimsuit I recommend getting fitted first. Remember your body is beach ready whenever you’re ready to take your body to the beach. Don’t let the swimsuit seasons pass you by go out and enjoy it, show off those legs, rolls, and that belly and give no F’s while you do it.
