As someone who loves a timeless look, I couldn’t be more thrilled to see so many adorable polka dot options.  I was inspired by the dress to round up all of my favorite polka dot pieces that are available right now.  If you’re a polka dot lover like me, you’ll definitely want to check out these awesome and on-trend yet classic pieces!

A Roundup: All The Best Casual Plus Size Valentine’s Day Looks

Last year was the first time I really got into holiday themed clothing, but now I can’t get enough.  On Valentine’s Day, Kevin and I tend to prefer a cozy night in and cooking a nice dinner instead of going out on the town.  We like avoiding the crowds and overpriced “special” menus.  This means that for Valentine’s Day, I’m normally on the lookout for cute, casual outfit options instead of the usual little red dress!

Plus size brands have launched a lot of super cute V-day inspired options this year, and I was feeling them so much I had to round them up for you.

Roundup: All The Best Cozy Sweaters Available Right Now

Winter isn’t really my thing.  I LOVE the holidays but aside from that the cold weather really just makes me want to curl up in a ball next to the fireplace and never leave my house.
