Spring Plus Size Picks (Dresses & Skirts)

It’s officially Spring this week, so it’s time to start thinking about how to refresh your wardrobe! I’m a huge fan of pulling out all the dresses I own in the Spring that I haven’t been able to touch all Winter long.


I decided to do a roundup of my favorite Plus Size Spring dresses (and a few skirts!) that I’ve been eyeing online & in stores. I think Spring is the perfect time for a bit of a wardrobe refresh, don’t you agree?

Florals are an obvious  & classic choice for Spring – and these are the ones I’ve been crushing on.

Peachy Pinks are going to be huge this Spring and Summer season. And luckily, they compliment so many skin tones!

You’re probably thinking, black for Spring? Yes! It’s always handy to have a black (or black and white) dress in the Spring, for special events that might call for it. And sometimes you just want to make a statement with a black dress.

Below are some dresses that I just couldn’t categorize but think are great for Spring (and maybe even Summer) nonetheless!

I decided to add in some super high end, pricey options for those ladies that happen to the big bucks to put down for some amazing designer pieces. I wish I was one of them!

And finally, some skirts! I only have a few because I was mostly looking for dresses – but as I was browsing I found some amazing skirts that needed to be featured.

Spring Perfume Obsession


Today it’s hitting 70 degrees here in Chicago and I am beyond ecstatic. It’s officially Spring. (I’m going to ignore the fact that the high tomorrow is supposed to be 45 degrees.) That means I’m pulling out my favorite Spring scent – Florence by Tocca Beauty.

It’s a light scent with beautiful floral notes of gardenia and jasmine. It’s such a romantic and feminine scent that pairs wonderfully with the warmer Spring temps and blooming flowers. It puts me in such a good mood!

Notes: Italian Bergamot, Grapefruit Leaves, Green Pear, Apple, Ivory Gardenia, Crushed Violet Petals, Jasmine, Tuberose, Blue Iris, Blonde Wood, White Musk.

I don’t own too many perfumes, so I’m thinking of picking up a new scent soon for the Spring/Summer. What’s your favorite Spring scents? Or perhaps, Summer scents?

Charlotte Russe+

It appears Charlotte Russe is releasing a new plus size collection in select stores and online today (March 9th)!

The company has even created a new instagram account, @charlotterusseplus, dedicated solely to its plus size range. According to Racked.com,  Charlotte Russe, “…has enlisted four plus size bloggers, including Gabi Gregg, to help promote the launch.”

But I know I’ll be checking in for pieces I might like to wear, even though I am definitely not their target demographic. I really enjoy trying to mix and match high end pieces with trendier, low-cost fashion. It makes fashion so much fun!
