Winter Is Here

Christmas and New Years have come and gone- and so has my attempt to have a dry January. Β We’ve had some amazingly cold days here in Tampa, so I’ve taken advantage of it by lighting our first fire in our fireplace (πŸ”₯=🍷), and we did not burn the house down nor die of carbon monoxide (we didn’t realize we left the chimney vent closed for about 10 minutes) so, I consider it a success! Β I was also able to finally wear my Β star beret, sweaters, coats and boots πŸ’—

Thanks to my pregnancy I grew out of most of my size 8 shoes (now I’m an 8.5) and 99% of all my size twelve coats (more to do with cake and no thyroid than babies πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ) Β so I took advantage of every single online Black Friday sale I could find- and Asos and Net-a-porter did not disappoint. Β Net-A-Porter isn’t exactly known for having any plus size fashion but I can usually find a few amazing things in an XL or size 50. When it comes to shopping in high end stores like that, I usually go straight to accessories. Β Personally, I think accessories can make or break an outfit so I tend to splurge a little more on them.Β  Over accessorize and you can make any designer dress look cheap but just the right amount on a cheap dress can make your entire outfit look like a million bucks. Β Here are a few of my favorite looks from the last few weeks.

I paired my coat from Asos with white jeans, a Zara Top in XL, gray Nine West Boots I purchased on sale from Nordstrom, my Rag and Bone hat, earrings from BoHo Hunter here in Tampa, FL.
