SUMMER DENIM FAVES
Rhonda Peterson

Summer denim is a thing! Much more lightweight than fall and winter denim. They are thinner and more breathable to wear during the hot summer months. During the summer I don't wear jeans often but when I do I prefer a softer, lightweight pair.

As a plus size woman, shopping for denim can be the most stressful experience! It's my least favorite piece to shop for. However over the years I've learned which brands to stick with because they always come through.

Here are my favorite brands to shop for summer denim. They never fail me.

1. Fashion Nova Curve -- Listen... Roll your eyes if you want too. Many people have mixed reviews about Fashion Nova Jeans. However, in my experience, they have never failed me. They contour perfectly to my body, lifts the booty and controls the belly (high waist pair). They have the right amount of stretch without loosing their shape and have belt hoops (because a belt is a must for me). I'm 5'9 and they are always the right length (wearing a dark denim pair in the photo). Overall, they are very comfortable, super light weight and can be worn for hours without being uncomfortable. They run small, so size up!

2. TORRID -- Torrid jeans speak for themselves and the low rise girlfriend jeans are my favorite. They are ripped just enough, cuffed perfectly at the ankle and gives a bad ass vibe to any outfit. The rips in the jeans allow air to penetrate the skin keeping me cool. I love to pair my ripped jeans with a t-shirt or button down. And they fit true to size. P.S. I ripped mine a little more :-)

3.  LANE BRYANT -- I'm sure you knew this one was a favorite. Lane Bryant Denim has been there for me since I was a teen. I love the quality and durability of their jeans. You can literally wear them for YEARS. At one point, I threw away a pair because I was sick of wearing them. They are super soft, breathable, lightweight and sometimes come in different colors. Although, pricey, they are definitely worth the coin!

4. Style & Company (Sold at Macy's) -- These jeans are just classic relaxed fit and super soft. Plus they are almost always on sale! They are a more classic fit but can styled with a twist. 

THE BLOGGER BLAZER

Raise your hand if you are here for the double breasted blazer trend??!

Girl I totally am! 

Generally associated with men's fashion, women are rocking this look all over Instagram! 

Although this look is super simple, I love it! Chic and classic just works. As a plus size women, sometimes we tend to gravitate towards overly sexy silhouettes or unflattering over sized clothing that does nothing for our shape. However, this trend incorporates sexy, polished and bossed up at the same time. It's an easy look that can transition from the office, to a day of shopping or even a night out. 

I kept the look easy and effortless. Y'all know how I feel about an effortless look. I paired the blazer with a collar button down white shirt, ripped blue jeans (brings in a little edge and they're just my favorite), a tan belt and tan boots. You could easily throw on a heel to dress it up a bit. I also paired the look with my favorite nude lipstick. However, a red lip can set this look off too!

FASHION NOVA CURVE PLUS SIZE DENIM JEANS -- HOW DO THEY REALLY FIT?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I'm starting out recharged and ready to slay 2018! I pray that you have an unbelievable year full of joy, pleasure, an abundance of happiness and success! 

So, here goes the first post of 2018 (Wow... can't believe I'm saying that!)

I have been dying to find quality denim jeans that fit. When Fashion Nova launched their plus size collection (Fashion Nova Curve), I knew I had to pick up a pair. In case you aren't familiar with Fashion Nova, they are an e-commerce clothing giant who's claim to fame rose through Instagram. Known for their extremely curvy models and sexy clothing, the brand has been worn by top celebs like The Kardashians.  It seems that every girl I've come in contact with lately has raved bout the brand.

Since Fashion Nova is known for their high waist denim jeans, it was a no brainer, I NEEDED a pair. They were so gracious to send me over a pair to try out. I am usually a size 20 in jeans so I decided to order a 3X. I was a bit skeptical because I was unsure of how stretchy the material would be but to my surprise, I was impressed by the fit. They sucked in everything! Literally, smoothed out all of the cellulite in my legs, thighs and snatched the waist! 

In fact, I have worn them 3 times already (haven't washed them yet) and they have managed to keep their shape. I'm 5'9 and the length came right above my ankle which is exactly the way they looked on the model. The waist stopped just above my belly button and did NOT budge in the back (big booty girls know the struggle) and they have belt hoops (yes!!). They also have just enough stretch and aren't too soft. I am not a fan of super soft denim. However, they are very comfortable and easy to wear.

The Cons -- They are on the thinner side (compared to my go-to brands like Torrid and Lane Bryant). If you are larger than a 20/22, most likely, these jeans won't fit. 

The price point is around $30.00 but they are on sale for $22.98! And I have a coupon code RHONDAXO for 20% off!

I decided to write this post because several of you asked me my thoughts and if I had given them a try. You were curious like me. This post is NOT sponsored. I just wanted to give you all my honest opinion.

Would I order another pair? Definitely!
