One Pair of Jeans, Two Ways

I’ve always loved Old Navy as an affordable, size inclusive retailer. I recently had the chance to try out Old Navy’s new and improved Universal Fit Denim. I was skeptical but genuinely excited to try out their new offerings. They took everything people love about their legendary Rockstar jean – sexy curved waistband, perfectly placed pockets, curve hugging fabric – and applied it to all of their jeans. That means, in every single pair of denim in the whole store, you get better fit, better fabric, and better booty. Sign me up for that! 

They relaunched four different styles:

Pop Icon Skinny 

Rockstar Super Skinny

Slim-Straight

Kicker Boot Cut

I decided to try their High-Waisted Distressed Power Slim Straight Jeans and style them two ways- one great for the warmer fall weather now and another way for when the temperature starts to drop. These jeans cut clean and straight down the leg with just enough stretch to flatter every body (and booty). They have a Clever Secret-Slim front pockets hold you in for a slimming effect, which is an instant confidence boost. I am wearing my typical size 14 here but may consider swapping them out for a size 12, as they fit well but ran a little big in the waist.

I had a lot of fun styling these jeans, they’re such a good wash- they work well with literally anything. I loved the look of this Textured Houndstooth Coat (runs large, size down) paired with this polka dot Slub-Knit 3/4-Sleeve Twist-Back Top (I took a large).

So, are you convinced yet? I strongly encourage you to get your butt to an Old Navy store and try out their new and improved denim. I’m a believer and sincerely appreciate when brands listen to their customers’ feedback. Thanks to Old Navy for partnering with me on this post. All thought and opinions are my own.

Garden Party Vibes with QVC

Very excited to be able to collaborate with QVC, I’d like to thank them for compensating this post! As the temperatures continue to rise, it’s time to shed the layers and reveal our best dressed selves. I’ve recently discovered all of the offerings at QVC and I have to say, I’m quite impressed, especially with how size inclusive they are! Any other QVC lovers out there? You know I am a full blown jumpsuit queen so I thought it would be fun to try out a few styles that caught my eye, all perfect for a day to night event.
Which one do you like best?

Look #1: Lisa Rinna Collection Regular Surplice Wide Leg Jumpsuit

This jumpsuit feels like you’re wearing pajamas- SERIOUSLY the most comfortable thing I’ve put on my body that is acceptable for wearing all hours of the day. It comes in 3 colors and sizes XXS-3X. I’m wearing an XL!

Look #2: H by Halston Regular Printed Jet Set Jersey Crop Wide-Leg Jumpsuit

If you’re a gal who loves a wide and cropped pant or even if you’ve never tried, now is the time! I find them to be so flattering on all different body types. This fabric is stretchy so it’s very comfortable and breathable. It comes in three different colors and runs from XS-3X, I’m wearing an XL!

Look #3: Du Jour Printed Faux Wrap Front Romper

How adorable is this romper? I love that it has a wrap front so if you’re nervous about the fabric riding up, the extra flap of fabric makes it look like a dress with the added comfort of shorts! This one also comes in three different prints and sizes XXXS-3X. I’m rocking the Black Multi in an XL. As shown with this KUT from the Kloth Amelia Lightweight Denim Jacket, also wearing size XL.

Jumpsuits + Rompers For Any Occasion: Try On Confidential

Today’s #TryOnConfidential on my IG stories features one of my absolute FAVORITE closet staples… the jumpsuit/romper. I wasn’t always a “Jumpsuit Kween” but I adapted the trend a little over a year ago and I’ve never looked back. Why do I love them so much? Funny you ask. I actually love them because they are easy to throw on, you can INSTANTLY look polished and stay comfortable. I also love that I don’t have to wear shorts underneath to prevent any chafing situation. So basically, it’s my lazy girl hack for looking chic and staying comfortable.

I’ve gone ahead and divided them by categories, but if you prefer to view them all you can just scroll to the bottom to see everything. Many items are on sale so be sure to stock up for every occasion. Would love to hear your thoughts or any questions below!

Red Underwear For The New Year!

Paying homage to my Italian roots, it’s been said that wearing red undergarments on New Year’s Eve brings good luck and prosperity. It’s believed that wearing the color red helps continue the intention of good luck, so you may just wear it on the New Year, or every day because, why not?! For many of us, lingerie is a practical necessity but I’m here to remind you that it can be a lot of fun! I’ve rounded up my favorite red bra’s and panties to help you ring in the new year in style:
