Things I am awesome at: Coming up with cute outfits for Plus Size Outfit posts.
Things I am terrible at: Taking pictures of said outfits.
The biggest hindrance to me taking good outfit pictures is two-fold. First, my photographer (aka my very kind husband) is usually at work by the time I get dressed. Second, I have no good full-length mirror in the house, and even if I did, there is not a great source of natural lighting to take said picture. So, I work with what I’ve got. But I’m working on taking more pics! Why? Because I love y’all….. and also because I love having my picture taken.
I mentioned in my 2017 Goals post that I had an awesome SAVAGE crop top that I needed to wear more (hopefully that outfit pic is coming soon, because I did totally wear it out!) but I forgot to mention that, when I purchased that shirt, I also purchased another shirt. A shirt of my very favorite TV show and most iconic boss lady of all time. A MURDER, SHE WROTE SHIRT!! And I finally got around to wearing it. BEHOLD!!
Murder, She Wrote Outfit
One the surface, this outfit is unremarkable, but oh, it has hidden depths! First, I am wearing pants, which is not something I normally do. I’m more of a skirt or dress person for sure.
Second, I am wearing my pants folded. I am a big fan of the ankle pant look but I have no ankle pants. So I just did a little folding at the bottom of my old black pants and voila!!
Third, I have a Murder, She Wrote t-shirt!! I seriously love that show and I freaking love Jessica Fletcher. She’s a total HBIC who picked herself up after her beloved husband’s death and became a famous jet-setting author….. but she always came home to Cabot Cove. Total boss babe! The only way I could love this shirt more is if it was grammatically correct. Rebdolls, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add the comma between Murder and She!
Last, I am wearing the only pair of TOMS I have ever owned. Since they came out, I have never been a fan of their style, even though I thought their mission was very nice. When I saw these, I was like YASSSSS GOD. Now they have even more styles I love! TOMS, please get out of my head. I have a strict one in/one out policy on shoes, and y’all are killing me with these awesome choices.

I posted this makeup look on Instagram because I was so freaking excited to see my skin all glowy again! Winter is especially tough on my crazy dry skin, and I’ve finally found the right mix of moisturizer/primer/foundation that keeps my skin matte without looking dry and flaky. Praise the makeup gods!!! I’ve also posted this lip color on Instagram before, but it is still my hands-down favorite red. And at $5, it’s impossible not to give it a try. If you are still looking for the perfect red shade, I highly recommend trying a few ColourPop ones. They have every shade you can think of!
