Connecting with other bloggers has always been important to me. Even if you do not blog, you can certainly relate to getting together with other ladies that are like-minded. So after finding out that three other plus size bloggers that I followed were in Orange County, California where I live, I put into action a meet up.
Bianca of Bianca Karina, Veronica of Cid Style File, and Nina of Curvy Mod have become a very special part of my life and during our second meet up at the Anaheim Packing District we took the opportunity to do a full on photo shoot. I enjoyed having a photographer instead of my usual timer and tripod as well as having an entourage to help with hair and clothing placement. Just call me fully spoiled. On the flip side, I found great pleasure in acting as photographer for the other ladies. In today’s post, I am showing a great fall outfit and linking up with my fellow OC bloggers for even more inspiration!
I recently showed this exact look in a video and loved it so much, I had to feature it on the blog. It is such a fun look for fall with plaid and faux leather. The leggings are actually ribbed velour and look like velvet. In fact, I got asked a few times if they were velvet!
This pretty silver necklace adds just enough sparkle to add a bit of holiday flavor. It goes so well with the silver metallic threads that run through the plaid shirt.
I loosely tied the shirt below my waist for a relaxed feel and also allowing me to feel covered with wearing leggings. These pom-pom flats got so much attention that day, even from perfect strangers. It was great to interact with people in such a positive way.
The Anaheim Packing District was full of areas with fabulous backdrops to take pictures and we took full advantage. We spent hours talking over lunch and walking around the area. This is an experience I truly cherish and I look forward to meeting up with my fellow bloggers again.

I simply adored Bianca’s cold shoulder and mini skirt combo. She has a style that is undeniably her own. The color scheme of dark olive-green and a orangy camel is so beautiful for fall.
I stopped short when I spotted Veronica in the parking lot. This fabulous tiger sweater caught my attention in such a positive way. It matches her spunky personality perfectly.
I have known Nina for quite a while now and this dress and jacket outfit defines her style and personality perfectly: sweet and cute. She is a master at black and white outfits and this printed pinafore fits right into that along with a touch of mauve through the “so on trend” bomber jacket.
