Target’s New Plus Size Line: Ava & Viv

OK, I’m sure you’ve heard the hype…Target debuted a new plus size line called Ava & Viv, with the help of some fab plus size bloggers. Have you tried it yet? I was a little skeptical with their first collection…but all of that changed when I found these amazing Ava & Viv Black and White Ankle Pants. TO.DIE.FOR! I had to have them, and I’ve seriously worn them every other day to work this entire summer. So…I thought I’d give Target and Ava & Viv some love and showcase how I’ve been strutting my stuff in these pants. PSSSST they are on clearance right now. Snag them before they’re gone—but be sure you size UP. I’m normally a size 18, but I bought a size 20, and they are still a little tight!

3 Easy Steps for a Plus Size #GirlBoss Work Outfit

Let’s hear it for all of the amazing plus size #GirlBosses out there! How do you look fabulous at the office, and still look professional? Here’s 3 easy steps that I follow when dressing for the office…
3 Easy Steps to a Plus Size #GirlBoss Wardrobe by Amber from Style Plus Curves

First, pick dresses or tops strong colors that flatter your skin tone and show your shape, but can still be considered modest. Next, find a great bag in an unexpected color that is large enough to fit an extra pair of shoes for your commute, all of your daily essentials and your electronics. The 3rd essential part of a #GirlBoss outfit is of course…shoes! Choose shoes that make a statement–such as a unique animal print–but opt out of the sky-high strappy heels. Try to find shoes that you won’t be limping in by the end of the day. I’m the first to admit that I don’t always follow my own advice to “wear shoes that are comfortable to walk in,” but I’m trying!

This Tahari by ASL Dress is an absolute dream! I got it on sale at Macy’s but sadly, it’s no longer available. But I did spot a few left on 6pm.com, so check here to see if they have your size!

It’s such an amazing rich cobalt blue color, in a shape that is ridiculously flattering. The hem is just above the knee for me (I’m 5’9), and the 3/4 length sleeves are perfect for an all-season dress like this. Gold details at the neckline and the cap of the tie belt add some extra pizzazz that is perfectly set off by gold accessories.
