most asked question ever - which I totally understand why! It can be hard to find tops that are long enough or flattering with leggings.

Here are my current picks that you could wear with leggings. Most of these items are on mega sale right now (it’s like the pre-black friday sales are crazy out of control this year?!! - not complaining!!)

STYLE HAS NO SIZE // denim on denim with Madewell

Thank you to Madewell for sponsoring this month’s Style Has No Size look!

Mireille from City Peach and I are at it again! This time with a super fun way to style a casual look for the Fall.

Striped color-blocked sweaters are ALL THE RAGE right now. So are denim jackets. And guess what? We jumped on the socks + mary janes bandwagon and I AM OBSESSED.

JCrew has extended their sizing and I am SO excited to show you the things I love! WARNING: there are… a lot. There are so many more things I wanted to include as well, but the list was getting a little out of hand. ;)

Scroll down to see all of my picks - click on each picture to see the item. Note that MOST of these items come in several colors. All items start as XXS/00 and go up to a 3X or 24. All jeans go from a size 23 to a size 37!

OH, BTW WE ARE HAVING A BABY! I guess it’s time for a bumpdate?

Although I have referenced the fact that I am pregnant on here, I realized the other day that I never made the “official announcement” on the blog that we are having our second baby girl… so, better late than never!

I haven’t been big on doing “bumpdates” - but I thought I would update you all on how I actually am doing, despite the pics and videos you see on Instagram.

“What happens when you finally lose all the baby weight, what will you call yourself then?”

“What size are you REALLY, though?”

“Are you calling yourself plus size just because you’re pregnant?”

“What size were you before you got pregnant?”

These are just a few examples of questions I get ALL of the time. From real life friends and family, to people I don’t know on the internet.

I've been hearing this quote several times in the past week - almost like it's the universe SHOUTING IT AT ME. It's been a really good reminder. Life is full of seasons, things can be challenging but hard doesn't have to be a bad thing. 

If you've been following along with me, you know I've been working my butt off before this baby comes to make some extra cash and secure more hours towards our healthcare benefits.

Happy Friday!! Here's another PLUS SIZE AND PREGNANT LOOK with NON-MATERNITY clothing! Minus the jeans. ;) I wanted to share this look because 1, THE SWEATER AND SHOES ARE 40% OFF. I REPEAT. This is not a drill. But 2, I wanted to show you how to amp up a simple tee-shirt look, in classic Dorough fashion. You know I can't help myself - I love mixing prints every chance I get!

FALL HAUL FOR EMALINE // how to get high end kids' clothes on the cheap!

One of my favorite ways to shop is thrift and consignment because not only can you get really cute, barely worn stuff - but you can also find cool and unique things that aren't in the stores anymore!

I am THRILLED to share with you this amazing online consignment store called BAGSY! They have ALL KIDS sizes and the cutest stuff. An amazing selection, I am blown away... I could literally sit on their website for hours.

Layering and mixing patterns is my JAM, you know this! I really don't like playing by the rules... so here I am, throwing on a plaid trench coat over a camo shirt jacket and calling it a day. If you've been following along with my life updates, than you probably know I've been working a little bit...
