Ladies Designer Blouses – From Summer to Fall

My two favorite seasons are Spring and Fall because I don’t like the Summer heat or the Winter cold. Spring and Fall always have the perfect not-hot and not-cold weather that works perfectly for me. However, I really really like Summer fashion – tanks, shorts, light fabric, and an abundance of bright bold colors. This leads me to often shop for summer clothes with Fall and Spring in mind. You can have blouses that can be worn through all four seasons. So, when shopping for ladies designer blouses, look out for things that can easily transition from Summer to Fall and/or would go with your already existing Fall wardrobe. Plus, layering is so much fun and never goes out of style right?!

Women’s Dressy Blouses for all Occassions

I am obsessed with this Beyove ruffles peplum blouse! The red and wine red are my favorite colors, but there are other color options to choose from. It also comes in mustard yellow which I find to be really cute! The ruffles on the shoulder gives a one sleeve illusion, while the peplum gives a figure flattering effect. As far as women’s dressy blouses go, this one is a keeper! It can easily go from dressy to casual and everything in between. Pair it with a patterned skirt and heels, and you are ready for a night out or even for work.

Summer-Ready Women’s Work Outfits

It’s all warm now; or really hot, depending on where you are. A good sign that summer is here. But with this weather change comes the need to dress to accommodate the new in-flow of summery heat. And that includes our work outfits. Getting dressed for work can either be an everyday chore, or we can make it easier and a little bit of fun with some perfect-for-summer and trendy women’s work outfits.

Whether your work attire calls for business formal or business casual, you can have pieces that mix and match easily to make your daily dress-up-for-work time a breeze. For this to happen, your summer work wardrobe will need to have staples like sleeveless shirts (plain and patterns) and neutral colored skirts and pants. These are the basics, as they can be quickly paired together for a very easy but stylish professional look. Dresses are also great to have because they are one-piece and you don’t have to worry about pairing them with another clothing item.


It’s hot, yes. But some work occasions may demand a business formal look which includes a jacket or blazer. Feast your eyes on ModCloth’s array of some really trendy and summer worthy blazers to suit your style!

Clearly, colors can be seamlessly incorporated into our work outfits too. So don’t be afraid to throw in some bold colors. A red midi skirt and a floral sleeveless shirt can be a great work outfit. Purples, greens, and oranges are colors that can also be present in a work outfit without it looking ‘loud.’ Just look out for the right shades and tones.

Overall, for these hotter days we are in, and for the ones ahead, keeping your outfit simple may be the smart way to go! What is your preferred work outfit for summer? Or what are your thoughts about women’s work outfits in general? I’d love to hear your thoughts! 

Plus Size Workout Clothes for Women – Getting Summer Ready in Style!

When it comes to plus size workout clothes for women, finding the perfect fit combined with the right style might be a chore. At some point, you may have even found yourself settling for regular tights or shorts and a t-shirt in place of actual active wear.

And that is totally fine! The most important thing is that we don’t let anything get in the way of our workout goals.

However, there are a number of stores with stylish and durable workout clothes for the full figured woman. So you really don’t have to settle.

Plus Size Workout Clothes for Women

Choosing the Best Plus Size Active Wear

Essential things to look out for when choosing the best plus size active wear are the fabric, how to wash, and how high or low the bottoms sit on the waistline. Once, you have the essentials, then you could also look out for any extras that you may prefer like hidden pockets, compression, or drawstrings.

Personally, I have to have drawstrings because I hate when my tights roll down at the waist. Drawstrings fix that by keeping it right where it should be – at the waist.

For sport bras, you should check what activity level they are made for, how much coverage it provides, and what type of closures they have, if any. If you’re a runner, certainly you don’t want to get a sports bra that was made for yoga. So high impact bras for high impact activities. You also want it to be fairly easy to put on and take off.

I buy only sport bras made for high impact activities. My reasoning is, if it’s good for high impact, it will be good for low impact too. But definitely not the other way round. So when in doubt, choose ‘high’ 🙂

Another key thing to note is that if you want your workout clothes to still be perfectly in use five years later, you would have to pay a little more for it. That is if you can of course. I promise you that in the long run, it will be totally worth it. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for”; but in this case you will be getting more than what you paid for.

Where to Buy Plus Size Workout Clothes for Women


Athleta is the sportswear line of The Gap. Their sports bras are in sizes up to 40FF, while their bottoms and tops have sizes up to a 2X. They also have a variety of styles and designs to choose from.


Plus Size Workout Clothes - Essence Open Back Tank


Torrid also has everything from sports bras to hoodies, but they have more extended sizes than all the other stores mentioned here. Their sports bras go up to a size 50DD and the rest of their active wear go up to a size 6X.

Right now Torrid has a buy one get one, and a buy one get one 50% off sale going on. Don’t miss out! You can also go here for more buy one get free deals.

Plus Size Workout Clothes - Torrid Harry Porter Set


I still have a pair of capris that I got form Fabletics in 2012 or so. They are so comfortable that I wear them around the house and to run errands too. Despite being about 5 years old, they show no signs whatsoever of retiring anytime soon. They are that good and I love them!

Fabletics has sizes up to a 3X and many gorgeous colors and styles. And just so you know, I did not stay as a member of Fabletics; only because I didn’t see the need for a membership for gym clothes. I have nothing at all against memberships or subscriptions, but in this case I just got my capris and I got out.


Nike has a plus size section that includes everything from sports bras to hoodies and pull-overs. Their sizes go up to a 3X. They are another brand I’ve shopped with for workout capris and pants; and all items are still great and in use years after.

Plus Size Activewear for Women - Nike Running Crops

Nordstrom Rack

The great thing about Nordstrom Rack is that you can find brands like Nike there; and at very affordable prices too. You won’t find plus size sports bras here though(at the moment); but you would find other items in sizes up to a 3X.

Victoria Sports (formerly known as VSX?)

For anyone who doesn’t know, this is the active wear section of Victoria’s Secret. Although you won’t find workout clothes beyond an XL here, their sports bras go up to a size 40DDD. They have a lot of stylish workout clothes though. So if you are an XL or below, you’re in luck!

I got two of their front-close sport bras about three years ago and I still use them today. Great support for running and kick boxing. You can choose from support levels of minimum, medium, or maximum; depending on the activity you take part in.

Designer Business Suits for Women

When it comes to stylish work outfits, business suits for women can no longer be left out in any way. Although it is said that business suits should be sober in color and style, fashion trends today say otherwise.

For women in particular, business suits have become anything but ‘sober in style and color’. They have not only become more and more colorful, they are also now more stylish than ever before.

From dress suits to pant suits to skirt suits, and from matching to unmatched suit/jacket and bottoms, business suits today have shaken off many restrictions and shown that the possibilities are endless. They are even seen on the runway in many different versions; sometimes with an unexpected twist.

This evolution happens to be a welcomed one for the trend-setting working woman. And rightfully so. There really is no reason for women’s business suits to be limited in color and/or style. Colors and style shouldn’t detract from the business at hand. All it should say is “That’s a stylish business woman!” 🙂

Now, for the women who would like to take their work outfits a step further and indulge in business suits by designer brands, this one is for you! These are 10 of the most fashionable and flattering women’s designer suits to make you stand out from the crowd. And plus size options (up to size 16) have not been left out!

Personalized Mother’s Day Gift Ideas – Buy Online.

Mother’s day is fast and furiously approaching! And I have some great personalized mother’s day gift ideas to share that I’m sure you and mom would be very happy with!

I know there are just as many moms and their families who look forward to mother’s day as there are those who just see it as another day. And while mothers’ who are into it are sitting back relaxed and looking forward to what they might be getting, or getting to do on that day, their significant others, friends, and/or kids might be racking their brains about the gift.

Personalized Mother's Day Gifts

A lot of thought usually goes into coming up with ideas of what to give to or do differently for mom each year. Well, unless you’re like my then 4 year old who happily gave me a glue-stick for mother’s day. I can’t say how much thought went into that, but I guess the thought still counts 🙂

Anyhow, a good thing to note is that when you’re not sure what to gift anyone at all, personalized gifts might just be a good consideration. It just tells the receiver you went a step further with the gift and engraved it especially for them.

So if you’re not sure what to give mom, or if you live miles away and won’t be able to be with her for mother’s day, then here are some personalized mother’s day gifts that you can shop for from the convenience of the great world wide web.

You can’t go wrong with thoughtful personalized gifts.

  • Jewelry

Very many women love their jewelry; and that includes mom. Stella & Dot has a great selection of engravable jewelry that you could choose from for. Items include charms, rings, ID tags, lockets, bangles, bracelets, and necklaces. There are also multiple options for personalizing them with mom’s initials, name, or whatever you choose.

Their Signature Delicate Necklace, Signature Delicate Ring, and their Signature Wishing Bracelet can be made a set or purchased separately.

Stella & Dot Jewelry Trio








  • Bags

Amazon carries this Zippered Clutch that comes in many patterns and colors; more colors than are shown here. Also, you can’t tell from the picture, but they are large enough to hold all of mom’s essential and then some. At almost 12 inches long, it can also hold a Kindle or smaller tablets as well. And of course you have the option to brand it with mom’s initials or her favorite letters.
Zippered Clutch
Other options are from MarleyLily, and include a ring handle vegan leather Tote Purse that doubles as a cross-body bag, and a monogrammed Wicker Bag. Both styles are definitely unique in their own way, which I think makes them great gifts.

Cute monogrammed gifts

Cute monogrammed gifts - Wicker Purse


  • Clothing

I have not seen many options for personalized clothing when it comes to styles. There are mainly tanks and t-shirts; which is perfectly fine, since tanks and tees are still appealing to most women. And you could always add a touch of humor to your customization; as long as mom would find it funny too lol.

Some clothing options are a Racer-back Tank Top, Pajama Shorts Set, and of course a top for the Fur-Baby Moms too. Personalized Clothes

  • Watches

If mom is a watch lover or you just think she’s due for a replacement watch, then Fossil has lots of options you could personalize. You can engrave a few words on the back that would put a smile on mom’s face. Design one for her here.

Personalized Fossil Watch

Personalization Mall also has a watch you could customize for mom. It is called Picture in Time, which is very befitting, because you have the option to upload a picture which would then be reproduced on the face of the watch. Pretty cool! Add a photo of all the grand-kids and send this watch to Grandma. We all know she loves seeing her grand-babies’ faces!

Picture In Time

  • Shoes

Us women love our shoes too! And Vans is one of many brands with great personalization options. Their custom-made section allows you to add your own photos and/or up to four alphanumeric characters. In the photo here, I added the header picture from my site and my site’s initials as an example.

There are many styles to choose from, and a plethora of colors and patterns to customize with. Even the shoelaces can have mom’s favorite color or pattern. Also, every part of the shoe can has a different color or it can be all white; it’s all up to you. Customization is also available for men and kids’ shoes. That could be great for maybe father’s day or a kid’s birthday or graduation. Hint, hint!

Vans definitely has more colors and styles that would make them appeal to all ages and fashion preferences; but you may also want to check out the options Converse and Adidas have. You know mom’s style best!


Custom Vans

For dressier foot wear, Shoes Of Prey has it all. However, their personalization is not about putting mom’s initials on her shoes. What they do is let you either create a pair or customize one of the many styles they already have. I think that is amazing; and fun too!

You can actually create or customize mom’s very own heels, flats, sandals, boots, or sneakers! Pick not just the style and colors; also pick the heel type and height, material(s), and even the lining type and sole color. There’s absolutely no way mom won’t love that!

Here’s a view of their customization area: Custom Shoes of Prey

And that’s it!

There are clearly many options of where to shop for personalized gifts online; and there are many inexpensive choices too. You just click, ship, and it will be perfectly on time for mom’s special day!

Also, keep in mind that any of these items can be combined with others to make the perfect mother’s day gift basket, box, or bag.

This isn’t an exhaustive list, so I’m sure there are other places and more items. What online stores do you get items personalized? We could all learn something new and valuable from your input 🙂
