I'm a Fan

So, my Seattle Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl for the second time...ever...YAY! And per usual the best fan gear doesn't come in my size...sigh.  I have a Junk Food sweatshirt that I recently bought from the Pro Shop while in Seattle for Christmas.  I found the last XXL and wiggled my way into it...I'm a proud fan and I like to look cute while I why is it so hard to get the best of the best in my size?  Don't you want my money retailers?

I went ahead and bought this super cute Super Bowl tee pictured below in an XL...wish me luck!  Here's hoping it runs big.

Torrid joined the NFL Fan club this year with a super narrow selection...I loved that the t-shirts were v-neck and didn't feel frumpy dumpy Plus Size-esk.  Here's hoping they do more next year and have options for all of the teams.

Lane Bryant also showed up with a promising collection...though again lacking options for all teams so maybe next year I'll get to give them a little more  of my money.  They did however come out with a great Super Bowl top featuring this years teams...and I can't help but love seeing my Hawks on top!  Here are a few of my favorite styles they offered this year...foil graphics, raglan sleeves and repeat prints!

With Straight Size lines like Victoria's Secret PINK and Junk Food offering such cute options it becomes frustrating to track down something you'd be excited about wearing on game day.  Touch by Alyssa Milano ranges from size XS - 4X...but my very petite friend that normally wears a small had to get an XL to fit her!  I have two items from the line, both in 4X...and I have no wiggle room...but I normally wear a 2X or a size 20...not so fun for the girls needing larger sizes than that.  Oh, and the Touch line rarely goes above an XL.

Get Outta Town

It's no secret...I LOVE City Chic tankinis...they're not even paying me to say it!  I love looking at their Australian site to get a preview of what's to come to the US site.  Pretty sure I need these beach cover-ups for my next trip to Maui!

On beachy vacations I spend 80% of the day in my tankini...and when I'm not in the water I want to jam around and look cute while doing it!  Here's hoping these become available on soon!

Comfortable Casual

For the longest time I struggled with putting together looks that were both comfortable and seems like it would be an easy task really...but for me it always came down to the shoes.

Comfortable shoes...not always so cute!  At any rate...I'm now more than comfortable building outfits I love to wear and feel comfortable rocking all day long...could have something to do with my growing shoe collection!
