Easy Stripes

This weekend I decided to scope out the local Target’s plus size “Pure Energy” section (again). My local store in Chicago had a TON of new items and I was impressed with how well organized it was in addition to that.  They had at least 10 racks of new pieces, including a lot on clearance. Also I just check out the website items and I’m impressed with their use of ACTUALLY FAT models (as in bigger than a customary plus size model size 14) YAY!

I love relaxed striped shirts and when I saw this one, I got so excited.  It’s soft, fitted in the right places - a great easy casual piece.  I paired it with some of my skinny-fit jeans and some flats to go to a going away dinner for my best friend. 

Dinner was bittersweet. It’s so hard to let go of someone who has been so close. I know they’re moving for good reasons, and I do have great hope that we’ll stay close, but you know how distance can be.  I’m thankful at least that she’s in my wedding in a few weeks, so I at least get to see her again very soon.

Speaking of which, things might be a little quiet here as wedding gets closer. I’ll be doing a big master wedding post soon after, but there’s a lot going on until then.
