MEET Carla

This year was another doozy but rather than focus on ALL the uncertainty, lets chat about the things that made this year fun (or at least bearable!) From my favorite cashmere sweater, to the appliance I used daily, I included links to everything I couldn’t stop recommending to friends this year!

Plus Size Clothing Favorites

Brand Favorites – This year I was really impressed by a few brands! Old Navy and Target are staple favorites for me, Abercrombie is a new favorite (size range goes up to an xxl or a 37 in pants), Eloquii is tried and true for event pieces, and Universal Standard became a favorite for elevated basics!

See reviews of most of these items on Tiktok here and here!
