Hey Beauties!

Happy Spring beauties! I know it is hard to grasp being that much of the country just experienced a Winter storm. However, it is true… Spring is finally here! As a resident of South Georgia, I must admit that until last week, we had not experienced Winter, just an extended Fall. While many of my friends and family complained of cold air and snow, Jack Frost had yet to nip at my nose! And since he was tardy for the party he missed out because now we are springing forward!

Aside from the pollen, I am here for Spring! How could I not love the beautiful smells and colors of all the flowers in bloom? For me it is the most pleasant time of the year, great for road trips, cookouts and of course keeping it cute!

Now you know me, so you know that I had to include fashion in this conversation because it is another reason why I love Spring! Yes, sandals, sundresses and shorts… three of my favorite s words!  Oh, and since we are talking s words, let me add savings to that list of favorites because I am always down for saving a coin or two. Savings are how I live to shop (my favorite s word) another day and there is no better place to shop and save than

For years, T.J. Maxx has been my go to when shopping for my family and I recently discovered that is equally as resourceful. Like the store, is the one place I can go and cover all of the bases; clothing (for myself and the kids), shoes, accessories, beauty products and even nice decor for our home. Yep, has it all and for a fraction of the price!plus size blogger, Maui Bigelow Of Phat Girl Fresh

As a single mother, money can get funny and I can’t always afford to shop department stores. However, we are a fashion forward group of individuals and T.J. Maxx caters to that. My children know that right before the seasons change, we must take a trip to T.J. Maxx to assure that our wardrobe is properly put together for what is to come.

Today I want to share two looks that I am loving for myself. Both looks break a rule or two in regards to plus size fashion and what plus size women shouldn’t wear. However, you’re my girls so I know that you know… I WEAR WHAT I WANT!

Yeah, I know… Society says that plus size women shouldn’t show our arms, wear all white or wear bright colors. However, I refuse to style my life according to the standards of anyone other than me. So, again I say… I wear what I want and you should too!

Now that I have given you a little taste of how I plan to slay Spring and break a few fashion rules, tell me what you think. How do you plan to do the same?

Oh, and have you checked out your local T.J. Maxx for your Spring fashion needs? Because they have some amazing fashion for plus size and all women. Don’t have a T.J. Maxx nearby? Log on to and get your shop on, all of these items were purchased online! There is nothing like a little retail therapy, be it online or in the store. Did I mention that both looks combined were  less than $200?
