Heavy [into] Metal[lic]

To say that I'm into metallic this winter would be a huge understatement. I picked up this pleated skirt and this cozy yet chic sweater on my London trip; the skirt's from Primark and the sweater is from Dorothy Perkins (on sale here). The silver shoulder and elbow patches won me over, plus nothing welcomes the winter chill like a white knit. Photobucket Photobucket DSC_1407

I was wondering when plus size retailers would finally catch up to the rest of the fashion world and start making graphic print suits. I'd been craving one for what seemed like forever, so when I came across this F21 blazer I ordered it immediately. A few days later, a matching skirt popped up on the site and I about died. (The blazer is available here, and the skirt is available here). Totally channeling my inner Solange Knowles.

I'm so devastated by what happened in Newtown, Connecticut. Sending prayers and warm thoughts everyone affected (aren't we all?). Please consider donating--you can see the different ways to help here.

Holiday Gift Guide!

I've just moved into a new place and am going through kind of a rough spot, so my current daily outfits tend to consist of t-shirts and leggings, on a good day. As much as I love sharing my outfits online, it can get a little repetitive, and the pressure to always look "good" is a very real thing. Fashion blogger burnout, I suppose. In the mean time, I would like to keep the blog alive by realizing every post doesn't have to be an outfit post (though we can all agree those are reader favorites).

If you're anything like me, you have yet to do your Holiday shopping. Luckily, I've been browsing websites for inspiration and have put together a little list of great and affordable gift ideas (if you're related to me and reading this--look away)! Photobucket
7) Gorjana Paperclip Ring I love mine!!! As seen on my instagram.
*I was lucky enough to attend a Surface event recently, and they gave one to each attendee! As an iPad lover, I'll be the first to admit that the Surface is great if you're looking to actually do work from your tablet. It has a touch keyboard (and comes with Microsoft Office) so it's perfect for bloggers, college students and girls on the go.
