I have the hardest time with dressing myself fashionably. I am a full time mom and full time employee so my summer clothing wardrobe consists of work related t-shirts and Old Navy jeans.

In the summer, I really struggle as I can never find clothing that keeps me cool but also doesn’t make me look like I’m wearing a potato sack. As someone who is considered ‘plus size’ I struggle to find clothing that fits to be flattering and features current styling.

My go-to accessories basically consist of one necklace that I MIGHT remember to put on when I walk out the door and my prescription glasses from EyeBuyDirect.

Ditch the Unflattering Department Store Misfits and Chose Clothing Designed with Plus Sized Women in Mind

Avenue features adorable summer clothing in sizes 14-32 that are made to be comfortable and stylish for the working woman. From bathing suits to dresses and much more, Avenue has you covered and offers a comfortable fit with their own size chart.


Some of my favorite summer clothing pieces were:
An off-shoulder gingham print dress– My date night dress! It’s super comfy without having to sacrifice style. I like to pair it with a necklace or a belt around the waist to give it the slightest bit of shape.

Printed Bell Sleeve Top– This is a shirt that I wear to work ALL.THE.TIME. Every time I wear it, I get tons of complements. The knot helps it fit close enough that it gives shape but not too closely that it shows off unflattering figure.

Shannon Floral Bikini Top– I am always so sad when this top is in the washer and I have to wear something else. My brother has a pool and this is the top that I ALWAYS wear. It’s made of a thicker, high quality material and makes me feel like everything is supported and in place.

Nadine Embroidered Wedge Sandal– Seriously like walking on clouds. At the end of the day, my feet are so thankful that I chose these shoes. I am 5’9″ so any kind of heel makes me feel like an NBA player. These shoes are so cute and my confidence is boosted so that I don’t even worry about it.

Avenue is currently celebrating summer with a 70% bash! I recommend anything on their website. The clothing is beautiful and the customer service team is helpful and quick to respond.

Leggings that Work Double Time

One of the lesser known facts about me is that I have Fibromyalgia. This condition results in days where I have severe pain all over my body. I have found one way to ease the pain is to wear compression clothing. However, this tends to leave me with dry, flaky skin as I can’t apply lotion before putting on my favorite compression pieces.

Skineez are seriously a life saver for me. The Women’s Toning Capri literally moisturize your skin while you wear them. They are infused with retinol, shea butter, and Vitamin E. After 10 washes, the stockings can easily be re-freshed with a Garment Replenishing Spray so that you never have to sacrifice beautiful skin.

I wear the Women’s Toning Compression Capri’s almost every day of my life. They look great so I can wear them out to run errands but are also comfortable enough to lounge around my house when I don’t feel well enough to go out.

Never Lose Your Glasses Again while on Vacation

If you’re anything like me, you’ve lost MANY pairs of sunglasses to the murky depths of the lake, ocean, or pond. I wanted something that provided me with ultimate UV protection, would not be easily lost, and provided me with style.

Rheos Floating Sunglasses are blowing my mind. These things will not sink to the bottom of the water! I immediately put them on when they arrived and I took off to the pool where I kept throwing them into the deep end, expecting them to sink.

The floating glasses were so awesome that my brother tried to sneak them away when I wasn’t looking! Glasses Feature:

Polarized with glass-like clarity
100% UV protection
Anti-scratch, anti-fog & anti-glare lenses
Comfort Grip nose pads for long lasting comfort
