Best Wide and Extra Wide Shoes and Boots for Winter

Some of the most popular content on my blog since I first launched has always been that featuring wide and extra wide width shoes for women.  I can completely understand why… for YEARS I struggled big-time in this area and although I was able to find cute plus size clothes that fit my style… shoes were a completely different story.

Thankfully, in recent years more and more wide and extra wide width shoe options have become available to us, and I’ve spent a LOT Of time and energy figuring out which ones are worth our time and which ones aren’t.

In today’s post, I’m rounding up all of my favorite wide and extra wide width flats, sneakers, booties, and boots that’ll be perfect for cold weather.

Best Plus Size Jackets & Coats For Winter

Winter coats and jackets can be one of the most difficult things to find for plus size women, and I’m no exception.  I spent YEARS wearing inadequate coats that either didn’t fit well or weren’t warm enough in the coldest winter months.

When I moved to New York and spent a LOT more time outside during one winter working in Manhattan, I knew I had to figure out the coat situation… and I really started diving in and researching exactly what I needed to round out my winter wardrobe.

Now, living back in Kentucky and working from home instead of traipsing around NYC every day, I don’t require as much long-term cold weather protection, but it’s still important to have a variety of coats for different temperatures and occasions.

Today’s post features my absolute favorite coat styles that I wear on a daily basis when the temperatures drop.  I think these styles will work great for any plus size person looking to stay warm and look cute this winter.

The Best Plus Size Holiday Outfits

If I’m being completely honest, my holiday season in 2019 will be the most laid back of my life.  Due to being nearly seven months pregnant with twins, there’s no traveling and any holiday activities we do will be SUPER low-key.  We’ll be doing more hot chocolate drinking and holiday movie watching and way less holiday party attending or nights on the town.

In today’s post, I’m sharing holiday outfit inspiration for plus size women, regardless of whether your holiday parties are glam and fabulous or low-key and cozy like mine.

Where to Buy Plus Size Workwear

Maybe I’m weird, but workwear is one of my favorite categories to shop.  Now that I don’t work in an office, I have fewer excuses to buy plus size workwear but I still love a good blazer, dress, or nice pair of slacks.

I know finding the perfect workwear can be difficult for people of all sizes, but it can be even harder when you’re plus size.

Not to mention… even figuring out what is/isn’t acceptable in your workplace can be overwhelming when you’re starting a new job.  In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with “over” dressing.  You know the saying… “dress for the job you want, not the job you have.”

I think it holds some weight.  Not to mention, it’s fun to dress up, especially when your dressy clothes are equally comfy.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe Featuring Lane Bryant

I sometimes hear people say they can’t find cute clothes at Lane Bryant, and it honestly shocks me.  I almost always have good luck finding wardrobe-essentials there and in recent years, I think the brand has done a great job of offering on-trend options as well.

A large portion of my wardrobe has been from Lane Bryant for as long as I can remember.  Today, I was picking up an order at my local Lane Bryant and tried on a few things while I was there. As I was shopping I thought… “I KNOW I could create a great Fall wardrobe here from start to finish.”

I polled my Instagram fam (hi, IG fam!) and the vote was unanimous that everyone wanted to see a Fall Capsule Wardrobe featuring exclusively options from Lane Bryant.

So, here we are.
