fall outwerwear trends 2017 - modcloth plaid cape on pinterestingplans

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite Fall outerwear trends for 2017 in collaboration with ModCloth. If you haven’t shopped at ModCloth they’re known for their colorful, retro styles (see their cute retro swimsuit in this post).   Even more than that they’re know for outfitting women of all sizes (up to 4X).   I wish I knew about ModCloth when my friends and I were all getting married.   They have the cutest dresses and aren’t just outfitting bridesmaids who can…

Clothing For A Cause! Charity Closet Sale

Clothing for a Cause - Charity Closet Sale - Pinteresting Plans Blog

CHARITY CLOSET SALE Today I’m introducing something I hope you guys will like – a charity closet sale.   As you can probably guess the wardrobe of a style blogger is excessive, robust, and impractical.   I am not complaining, I love what I get to do, but I bought my house before I started blogging and didn’t account for the closet space I would need to hold all these clothes. Fashion bloggers make money by showing you how to…

August Instagram Round-up | Pinteresting Plans

Today I’m sharing an August Instagram round-up.   August is when I start to buy more transitional wardrobe pieces (think cardigans, peep toe booties, and camisoles) that will dress me through the changing weather.   You’ll also see a bralette I’ve been wearing most days of the week since I got it.   I love the details of this bralette (so much that I bought other colors).   I am small busted so the size small is enough support (and nipple…

Today I’m sharing a stroller workout I do with my kids.  This post is sponsored by Macy’s. I have been getting a lot of messages asking about my fitness routines and there isn’t much to it these days.  I picked exactly where I wanted to buy a house based on the fact that I wanted to walk everywhere.   I live within walking distance of Whole Foods, the (children’s) library, dozens of bars/restaurants, my gym, and Chipotle.  Don’t most people…
