Let me start this post by saying what I wholeheartedly believe. BLACK LIVES MATTER. They do.
I’m not going to use this post to make anything about my own heartbreak over what is happening to our black neighbors. It’s not about me or us (meaning white women… which is the majority of my audience)… it’s about them.
There have been incredible resources shared on social media, and I encourage everyone to dig in and learn. Even those of us who are anti-racist or consider ourselves allies have a lot more learning and growing that we can do. I know I do at least.
Many people have recommended the books White Fragility and Me and White Supremacy to me… both of which are currently free on Amazon at the time of publication. I hope you’ll join me in reading them.
Yesterday, I spent the day reflecting on all that is happening in our country and thinking of ways I can put my money where my mouth is, so to speak, and do something tangible to stand with my black friends fighting injustice.

One of the most common questions I get asked is, “where can I find cute plus size clothes?!” and wow are there so many great options these days. This is the list of my personal favorite places to shop for plus size clothes.
Sizing note: I’m a size 26/28 in most items so I have included mostly stores on the list that include that size range; however, there are a few brands included that don’t TECHNICALLY make that size but they offer pieces that are sized generously and work for me.
Disclosure: These are affiliate links and I earn a small commission when you use those links to shop at no cost to you. The earnings help me with the operating costs of the blog, and I appreciate your support.
In order to make it easier for you to use my affiliate links when shopping at any time, I have created easy to remember URLs for these stores. The format is always my BLOG URL / the store name with no spaces.
This is a post I’ll be updating frequently as I explore new places and try new things. If I’m missing a store you love, drop a comment and let me know!
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.
