Recently, River Island contacted me to see what I thought of their spring lineup. If you’re a longtime reader of my blog, you know I’ve featured them before. I feel inspired by the spring trends for 2014, especially pastels. The sweet hues at River Island remind me of carefree strolling, sunny days, and two-hour lunches. I think something about pastels make you look like a woman in love.
As you become older and busier, you don’t always have time for a romantic afternoon with your other half. But that doesn’t mean I can’t have a beautiful day out with someone I absolutely love:
p.s. If you are looking for plus-size clothing as a size 14-16, River Island can be a great place to shop because their UK18 fits well, especially if there’s a little stretch. In terms of fashion-forward pieces, I think they beat ASOS too, which is saying something! If you are new to the brand, they are worth checking out.

Sometimes I need a dress that says “let’s sit across the table and strike a deal that will make us both richer.” This is one such dress. I used to think only suits meant business. Do you think a dress can be even more powerful than a suit? Tell me what you think.

When the boutique My Curves & Me asked me what I thought about their intimates collection (ranging in sizes A-K and 28-46), I have to say I fell in love.
If you admire vintage inspired lace, scalloped edges, and flirty cuts, you are going to love these pieces as much as I do. Here, I curated my own dreamy collection. I hope you like my favorites! I know matching sets are held as the gold standard. But sometimes, a mixed set is more eye-catching. So when it comes to your boudoir wardrobe—keep an open mind.
Some of the best lingerie advice I ever got comes from professional titilizer Dita Von Teese, who said the most important thing to look for in lingerie is fit—you need to look and feel comfortable in what you are wearing. Ultimately, lingerie is more about how YOU feel in it.
What do you think of the looks I put together? Is your style no-fuss or all-frills?
Thank you to My Curves & Me and thanks for supporting the brands that help support this blog! Currently, the shop only delivers to the UK, but I hope you join me in expressing interest for those of us across the pond. x
