Remixing Your Wardrobe With People Style Watch

Happy Monday guys!

Today on People Style Watch I'm sharing a little bit about remixing your wardrobe with pieces you already own.

I often get asked the question of how I afford to wear different outfits all the time. While it's true I do work with brands who send me items sometimes, I do still buy a LOT of my own materials, and you know from my reviews of companies like H&M that I'm not out for any brand approval. I only wear what I actually like and feel inspired by.

But that shopping I spoke of isn't happening all the time, even though it may seem that way. Instead, I spend a lot of my time looking for pieces that can be worn differently. I know what I like to invest in and what I will buy cheaply. And I also have tons of closet sales (as well as lots of donations).

To hear about how I remixed this vest from Asos with pieces in my closet, check out my latest post with People Style Watch by clicking here.

Blame The Sun

It made me do it. I don't care what anyone says, in my brain, the summer is here, lol.

A Few Fun Features With Simply Be + The Curvy Fashionista

Happy Friday. Today I wanted to share the latest campaign I'm a part of with Simply Be for their new denim release.

I got to try a pair of their new amazing line of jeans, along with bloggers Alison Teng, Marcy Guevara, Jessica Kane and Beck Delude. My denim selection was the "Phoebe Jean," and here's what I had to say about it:

Making Bold Prints Work For You!

Hi guys,

I'm back this week with another post for People Style Watch. This time, I'm talking about making bold prints work for you with this fabulous dress from Ashley Stewart. So often, we are told as curvy women that we shouldn't wear anything too bold so as to call attention to our bodies. I love to wear things that prove people wrong.

And of course, since it's spring, I had to add a pop of color with these mint green DVF pumps.

You can read all about this look and see more at PSW by clicking the link below.

Apologies if I have been quiet of late -- I just got a new job and I'm currently on week 3. Can't wait to share more details soon!

New For People Style Watch: Floral & Chambray

I can't tell you guys how happy I am that springtime weather is slowly creeping up. I can almost feel the day when we can officially leave coats at home and hit the beach on the weekends. So I've pretty much just rejected cold weather dressing and am just walking around without a heavy coat, no matter the temperature. I will not be defeated!

So for today's post for People Style Watch Magazine, it was all about that mood. I paired this super cute cropped chambray shirt with this bodycon floral skirt. I added a soft pop of color with my pink Pigalle pumps.

Check out the details, as well as shopping links, at People Style Watch mag!

Happy Friday beauties!

It's been such a busy but amazing week;  I am in complete grind mode right now so I am definitely keeping my eyes on the prize. And I'm also celebrating this semi-spring weather.

MEAL PREP MONDAY: This Week's Breakfast Quiche

Hey guys,

I'm going to be trying out a new feature on the blog showing off the recipes that I used for the week. I am hoping to do this every week and going in with the best intentions, but bear with me as I work out the kinks and figure out the best way to do it. If I find a recipe from Instagram or online, I will definitely let you know whose page to follow.

This breakfast quiche is going to be my breakfast for the next 7 days. Well - ideally 7, but if I make it to 5 or 6, that's cool too. Basically, I want to make sure that I am not buying food this week at work.

Here's how to prepare it:
