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.

Trend Alert: All Things Animal Print

If you’ve been following the Fall 2019 fashion trends, I’m sure you’re not shocked to see me writing about this topic… animal prints!  From the runways of NYC to the mall down the street, you’ll be seeing leopard print, snakeskin and other animal prints everywhere you turn.

As a lifelong animal print aficionado, I couldn’t be more excited that this trend is back and better than ever!  I counted and I already have 10+ leopard print pieces in my wardrobe that I’ve accumulated over the years and, honestly, I would be wearing them still even if they weren’t “in”.  My absolute favorite is when a print or pattern I consider to be a classic or wardrobe staple gets REALLY popular again.  It’s the perfect time to stock up.

I get that you may be a bit less over-the-top excited than I am about the trend, so if you’re just dipping your toe in… don’t worry, I’ve got options for you too!

Best Plus Size Little Black Dresses For Any Occasion

A classic little black dress (LBD) might be the most important wardrobe staple you can own.  It’s versatile.  It’s elegant.  It’s easy.  Your ideal little black dress might be casual with sneakers or it may be over the top elegant for a night on the town.

Finding the perfect plus size little black dress doesn’t have to be hard.  It’s ultimately about finding a great fit for your body and a great fit for your lifestyle.  Are you a “jeans and tee-shirt” kind of gal?  Maybe a simple cotton t-shirt dress will fit your style.  Are you a social butterfly with a booming weekend schedule? Maybe you should take it up a notch with lace, sequins, or other fun design elements.

There’s a perfect LBD for everyone, and I’ve rounded up my favorites from several of my favorite plus size brands in a variety of styles to meet your preference and budget!

What I Wore To LegoLand - Plus Size Vacation Tips

Everything You Need To Pack For A Beach Vacation: Plus Size Vacation Essentials

We recently visited St. Pete Beach and Orlando, Florida with Kevin’s side of the family.  It was SUCH a fun trip – so relaxing and it reminded me so much of the vacations of my childhood.  We always spent a week in Florida and split our time between Disney and the beach.  St. Pete Beach was such a family friendly area, and I’d definitely go back.   We also hit up Legoland near Orlando this trip.

Unfortunately, I’ve always been quite the over-packer and this trip was no exception.  My suitcase weighed in at 53 pounds and I had WAYYYYY more options than I actually needed.  During my trip, I chatted on IG stories about how much I had packed and there was an overwhelming response that many of you do the same thing.

By request, I’m sharing today EVERYTHING I packed for a week-long Florida vacation plus what I ACTUALLY wore.  You can also find below a YouTube video where I go through each piece and describe why I loved it or didn’t love it.  Keep reading ALLLLL the way to the end to get my free printable packing list for your next trip!
