I'm back with another look in the dressing room featuring some of Catherines (0X to 5X) new fall arrivals.  The colors of the new fall line-up are so gorgeous.  I stopped in a couple weeks ago and was struck by so many pretty autumnal hues of warm reds, oranges, browns, and greens, along with great jeweled toned offerings!  I'm loving the plaid and animal prints and three-quarter sleeves.  Seriously y'all, when is the weather going to be cool enough for me to wear fall clothing???

Getting all of these photos in order took a lot longer than I had anticipated, hence this post going up so late in the week.  This weekend marks Labor Day Weekend, with lots of sales going on.  Catherines has $15 off of jeans and pants both in store and online, as well as online only sales that include 70% off of clearance, $50 off $100 and $100 off $200, and Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off Jewelry! (Use code LABORDAYCA)

What I Wore: Casual Black & White + Propet Annika Sandal Review

What I Wore: Casual Black & White + Propet Annika Sandal Review -  #Propet #sandals #shoereview #redshoes

Shoe shopping has become increasingly more difficult as I have gotten older.  It isn't from a lack of seeing shoes I LOVE, but rather from a lack of being as nonchalant about what I put on my feet as I was when I was younger.  Back in my teens, it was all about quantity over quality.  I wanted to be fashionable on a very small budget, so I bought as many shoes as I could for as cheap as I could find them.  But cheap shoes typically lack cushioning and support, resulting in your feet (and possibly other parts of your body, like your hips, knees, spine, etc) paying for it later.  While I don't have any major issues, as I have grown older I can no longer tolerate uncomfortable, unsupportive shoes.  I've started a mission to replace my hurtful pairs with upgraded versions.

Propet USA sent me a few pairs of shoes to test out and review.  They specialize in hard-to-fit feet and feet in need of special care.  Propet offers a large selection of widths and sizes, as well as styles specifically designed to address foot ailments and pain.  You can read my review of the Lizzette sandal; and read on for my take on this snazzy red sandal.....

Wear It Now, Wear It Later: Floral

 Wear It Now, Wear It Later: Floral -  #fallfashion #psootd #styleblogger #fallstyle #floral #floralprint #falltrends #plussizefashion #ootd #fashionblogger

Florals are a pattern staple used through every season in any piece of clothing.  I used to be completely adverse to florals because the dresses my mom would buy (usually from Sears) or make for me had giant floral prints way more suited for your grandma's favorite couch.  Big, bib-like white doily collars were also involved.  It was not pretty, y'all.  I'm definitely not anti-floral now, but I do find that it is a pattern I don't have too much of in my closet.

We all know florals are pushed more during the spring and summer, but don't shy away from rocking your floral all year long.  Getting the most out of a piece of clothing is key to getting the most out of the money you put into it.  For today's post, I've teamed up with my blogging buddies again (Janeane of Designing From My Closet, Liz of With Wonder and Whimsy, and Nina of Curvy Mod) to show you that your florals don't need to be tucked away for the winter.  With just a few layering pieces, you can turn a summer ready dress into a fall perfect one.

In The Dressing Room: Target (Fall 2015 Ava & Viv)

Hello again my friends!! Welcome to a new week!  I had a busy weekend, which I am sure I will post about eventually.  It was all fun stuff - a haircut, a summer party, a bbq, lots of errands, some dressing room trips, and precious little time to relax .  But I do feel somewhat invigorated and ready to get more posts out than I have lately.

A week ago, I ventured to my local Target to try on the new Ava & Viv collection for fall.  As usual, I was disappointed in the limited selection available in store and the lack of clothing in my size.  None of the Targets near me seem to have much when I go in person.  Other downsides to this trip: 1) The prickly dressing room attendant had me hang up my items on a rack so she could count them with her hands, which I found odd; and 2) The temperature of the dressing room area was so incredibly hot that I was sweating in no time and couldn't really wait to leave.  It was stifling in there!  I still managed to snatch up a small handful of items and try them on for you.

Fall Trends with Yours Clothing

Fall Trends with Yours Clothing - #YoursClothing #FallTrends #plusblogger #styleblogger #plussize #psootd #Propet #fallfashion

Fall is approaching, though it seems to be traveling at the pace of a tortoise.  I've quite enjoyed seeing all the new fall fashion and trends popping up all over the internet.  As it is still in the 90s here this week, I long for the cooler weather that makes items like fun jackets, patterned scarves, jeans and tall boots, all perfectly acceptable sartorial options.

Until such a time, my awesome blogger buddies and I have teamed up to show you four fall trends inspired by Yours Clothing.  Janeane takes on Cozy Boho, Liz dons Modern Victorian, Nina tackles Military, and I delve into Cold Shoulder.

What I Wore: Teal and Stripes

The weekend is finally upon us!  I'm going to a birthday party tonight and delighted my weekend will be a bit low key, running errands and doing projects around the house.  In today's post, I talk about  new-to-me brand NIC+ZOE.  This striped sweater is from the Boston-based company via Gwynnie Bee.  Inspired by life, travel, design and textiles, the brand offers knitwear and tailored essentials geared towards the busy woman.

This is also the first time I am wearing my new teal capris on the blog.  I picked them up on one of my trips to Macy's, which is becoming one of my favorite places to shop lately.  Check out the rest of the post for my reviews....

What I Wore: Black and Ivory Summer Floral

What was supposed to be a quiet August of house-cleaning and project productivity has turned into quite the busy month.  Non-blogging life has kept me pretty distracted lately.  Sean and I spent all day Sunday cleaning the bedroom and reorganizing to move in a giant TV armoire that his mom gave to us.  I am so, so happy with how everything looks now.  I look forward to sharing photos with all of you when we have a few more decor items put up.

Today's post features a lovely black and ivory floral number from Lucie Lu via Gwynnie Bee.  This print felt very vintage country to me.  With it being on the shorter side, I felt like a sexy country girl frolicking in the outdoors.  Read on for my review...
