30Plusstyle: Animal Instinct

My first look in October is another 30plusstyle collaborative post and the theme is to show a look which represents anything animal i.e. animal print, fur, faux fur, or leather.  My intention was to wear leather but we have been experiencing a bit of Indian summer in the mile high city, so I settled on an animal print dress.

30Plusstyle:The $30 Challenge~Mad For Plaid

The 8th 30plusstyle installment is another budget style challenge and sharing the spotlight with us is guest blogger, Gaelle from thecurvyandcurlycloset. Since the spring budget challenge was very popular, we decided to incorporate one for fall and this time we are styling a $30 look around the popular fall trend, PLAID.

Monologue Mondays:How To Choose Comfortable Heels

I am a heel wearing gal.  In my opinion, heels push the oomph factor of any look up at least five notches. Whenever there is a choice between wearing/buying flats vs heels, the heels will win every time. However in the past, I have not always been wise about my high heel purchases and as a result had a closet full of fabulous, yet unwearable shoes. Since I am not ready to give up on wearing heels entirely, nor am I ready for “comfort” shoes, I started an internal  #everyheelcomfortable campaign and swore not to buy or wear another pair of painful, uncomfortable heels regardless of how fierce, fabulous, or inexpensive they are.

Me & A Graphic Tee

Seems graphic-tee looks have been popping up everywhere lately.  Typically, I am not a fan of T-shirts as I find them to be unflattering on me, yet lately I've been sporting a lot of  relaxed looks and thought I give this sporty trend a try.
