Pattern Mixing

Transitional dressing always presents a challenge for me. For one, I’m absolutely sick of all my winter clothes. One way I’ve been mixing things up quite literally is to really play a lot with pattern mixing. This adorable tiger-print circle skirt from Gwynnie Bee had the exact color match to my new WhoWhatWear for Target polka dot tee-shirt. I just want to pause for a moment and rave about how great it is that the WhoWhatWear line is for plus and straight sizes and I found my pieces along with the whole collection – not segregated to the plus size sad corner.

Of course I’ve been accessorizing everything lately with TONS of enamel pins. I am allll about the #pingame right now and my waxed denim moto jacket is a perfect place to display them all. All details for the pins are below.

Oh where oh where has InTheThickofIt been?

Well first of all, I’m still posting a lot on instagram @inthethickofit and i would LOVE it if you follow me and interact with me there. It’s not just clothes posts – it’s also a lot of my day-to-day and my sweet dogs Scout and Sailor and delicious food I eat. Typical insta, right?

Oh dear readers of InTheThickofit – it’s been a heck of a year. I just wanted to issue a quick apology for the slowing down of posts in the last 6 months. I am trying to get things together for more MORE MORE!!! but that hasn’t happened as quickly as I’d like. My lovely partner S is my photographer and between my schedule and his, there has been no time to take decent outfit photos. 

Also my weight has fluctuated quite a bit in the recent months and I’ve been finding it difficult to readjust my wardrobe accordingly. Sometimes it’s just hard to admit that life isn’t super easy. But I’m working through it and drinking lots of chai which seems to help a little 🙂

Here’s what’s happening though…I’ve got an amazing little Etsy shop called LastCraft that has just totally blown up.  There’s also my full time day-job that takes up about 12 hours of my weekdays. It’s just busy. 

I do have to say i am completely thankful for my plus size clothing subscription service Gwynnie Bee. It’s been so nice to add items that fit my ever-changing body to my wardrobe, even temporarily. Seriously if you haven’t tried them, you really should (and here’s a code that includes a free month if you’re so inclined). Below is one of my favorite recent purchases from them

I’ll be hopefully posting more soon – just wanted you all to know I’m thinking of you and missing you lots!
