It’s that time of year! Stores are bustling with shoppers, people are planning holiday parties, families and friends are creating delicious menus for the upcoming festivities, and so much more.

Monroe and Main Crossover Rib Sweater and Caviar Bead Leggings (c/o)

I love wearing black. Yes, it does majorly have to do with my field of working being a lighting designer in theater. The thing I love about black is the versatility of it. While most shun those who where black, I embrace it! Black can work for any occasion. It’s all about the style of the garment. I adore this outfit. It is perfect for doing some holiday shopping, wrapping gifts, enjoying a tasty holiday dinner, and so much more. These leggings have just the perfect amount of holiday glitz and glamour to them. They are beautifully detailed with black and gold intricate beading on the lower sides of the legs, and the fabric is soft with a nice, subtle sheen to it. They’ve got the perfect amount of stretch, and are super comfortable. I love that they could be paired with heels, ankle booties, cute flats (like I am wearing), or even sneakers.

My most favorite part of this outfit is this gorgeous, luxe, cashmere top. It’s absolutely beautiful. It’s buttery soft, feels like heaven on, fits like a dream, and has just the perfect detailing to make it feminine and sweet. The photos of this sweater just do not do it justice. It’s by far the most luxurious, beautiful top I have the joy of owning…and I’m being serious!! It fits so well. When I first put it on I was so excited to see the well fitting shoulders, the small feminine detailing at the base of the sleeves, and the buttons at the front. It flows so well, and it incredibly flattering. I cannot wait to wear this top with my favorite pair of skinny jeans and some OTK boots.

Plus Size Fashion Show with Super Model Emme + Kirstin Marie!!

**Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.**

Emme and Kirstin Plus Size Fashion Show #MacysEmme

Hello my loves!! I know it has been AGES since I’ve posted. Between switching jobs (more about that later on), some major life instances that were beyond control (again, more later), I have been working my hardest to get things back to a semi normal schedule. Finally, things are starting to settle down a little bit, and I can start to organize everything to get to a regular schedule. Moving on…I’m really excited to be modeling this weekend, November 7th, in the Plus Size Fashion Show with Supermodel Emme!!! Read on about miss Emme, and how fab she is.

Emme has been a major influence on the Plus-Size Fashion world. Aside from being the world’s first plus-sized model, she has a built a community around positive body image and embracing your curves. Your enthusiasm about fashion for the curvy girl and commitment to encouraging positive body image will help her mission. Body Positivity is super important. With society, social media, and even the fashion industry lately, being body positive is major, and I am all about it. Loving your body and yourself makes you feel like you can take on the world, and that you are worth more than a million bucks.

Macy’s is welcoming Emme, the world’s first iconic plus-size supermodel for a runway show highlighting the newest looks from Melissa McCarthy Seven7, Calvin Klein Performance, Michael Kors, I.N.C, Style & Co., and much more, all for the curvy girl ! After the show, stay for a shopping party where you can meet Emme*, enjoy refreshments, and take home an exclusive cosmetics travel bag with any purchase of $75 or more from Macy Woman or Accessories departments.** Plus, let the MyStylists help you find the perfect look and gift for every occasion – it’s fun, fast and free!

Want to come out and join me as I strut my stuff down the run way? I’d love to see you there!! Check out the details below:

Win $120 to JORD!

A few months ago, I teamed up with Jord Wood Watch to review this gorgeous wooden watch. I picked out the Ely in Dark Sandalwood. I loved the face contrast with the dark wood band. This watch is literally stunning. It’s smooth, soft, comfortable, and honestly, is a real show stopper. It’s such a unique piece, and I adore wearing it. I love the date window inside of the watch. It was one of my main reasons for picking it out. If you follow me on Instagram (Girl, come find me (@kirstinmarie) on there!!), you have seen my gorgeous Ely in action, totally playing up my leopard print onesie and a cute skeleton ring. 

Recently, Jord has released a beautiful new style, the Cora. I am dying for it in Koa & Rose Gold. This month I’ve once again teamed up with Jord Wood Watches to offer one lucky reader a chance to win $120 gift certificate to JORD!! Enter through the rafflecopter below!! This giveaway is open until October 31s, 2015. Good Luck!!

Fashion with the Mira Fit Bracelet

Looking cute and fashionable while tracking your activities have been the trends for quite a while now. With all of the available fitness trackers out there, it can be hard to pick one that will work with what you, your schedule, your style. I, personally, am not really a fan of the more athletic looking trackers. They are not as versatile. Sure, they look great when at work or at the gym, but do you really want to wear your athletic looking tracker when you are heading out to a nice dinner with your date? That is why I choose the Mira Fit Bracelet. It is a sleek tracker that can be worn inside a beautiful bracelet or clipped onto your person. I have the midnight purple bracelet, and I absolutely love it. It doesn’t look like a fitness tracker, it looks like a bracelet with a pretty stone in it. When my friends see what it really is, they get excited and immediately want to know where they can get one. I love that it is so incredibly versatile, and works with so many different outfits. I’ve created two outfits, casual and dressy, that the Mira Fit Bracelet is the perfect compliment.

Mira Fit Look 1

This outfit is perfect for running errands, grabbing lunch with friends, shopping, or strolling the streets of New York while heading to your next fashion show. The Mira Fit Bracelet is a great accessory here, because it can also act as a watch (when you swipe your finger across it, it displays the time), as well as a fitness tracker to keep up with you throughout your day.

Plus Size Mira Fit Outfit 2

I adore this outfit. The velvet dress and barely there nude heels are killer for a date night, dinner party, or even an after party. The Mira Fit Bracelet fits in flawlessly by accenting this outfit as a beautiful accessory, but it tracking your every step as you dance the night away or walk the city with you date.

The best part about the Mira Fit Bracelet? It syncs up with your smart phone, so you don’t have to worry about keeping track of your steps. It does everything for you!! It even gives you the times of the day when you are most active. If you are looking for a pretty, dainty piece that can act as a fitness tracker and blend with your day to day life, then you have got to try the Mira Fit Bracelet.

Monroe and Main Fall Color Confidence + $125 Giveaway

Monroe and Main Fall Color Confidence Cobalt on Kirstin Marie Monroe & Main Silver Bracelet on Kirstin Marie Monroe & Main Plus Size Fall Color Cobalt on kirstin marie

Purr Fect Print Top, Lolita Control Leggings and Wide Bands Cuff in Silvertone (c/o Monroe and Main)

When I think of Fall, I generally think of dark colors. This Fall, add some color to your look! I love cobalt for that exact reason. It’s a great color that can honestly carry through all seasons. Cobalt is such a great accent color for the Fall color palette. Take this gorgeous Monroe and Main top, it compliments the print and the otherwise dark color of this outfit and makes it pop. I love the waterfall back of the shirt. It’s pleated and sheer, but really looks lovely from all sides. I chose to pair this shirt with a great pair of black leggings, so that the shirt could be the center of this outfit. I really like this outfit for Fall. It’s a great outfit for running errands all day, or going on a lunch date – while being comfortable and looking chic. The Monroe and Main Fall Color Confidence section has quite a few additional gorgeous cobalt options to add to your Fall wardrobe, and give you that Fall color confidence.

Monroe and Main is celebrating fall with an awesome giveaway!! 25 confident bloggers sharing 25 ideas on how to add color PLUS 25 colorful prizes & 25 chances to win! Monroe and Main wis offering up one lucky winner a Fall Color Bundle with a scarf, earrings, bracelet, & bag valued over $125!

Last minute party prep with Target Beauty Box

This post is promoted and sponsored by Target. I received a Target Beauty Box free of charge and was compensated by Target via Mode Media for my review. All opinions are my own.

Last Minute Party Prep with Target Beauty Box on Kirstin Marie #TargetBeautyBox #TargetStyle #BeautyBox #Sponsored

Quick! You’ve got one hour to prep yourself for an End-of-Summer Party. Which products do you reach for?

Last-minute party prep can be very stressful. Especially when it comes to making yourself look and feel great in a flash. I, personally, want to look and feel fresh, put together, and welcoming when I am heading to a last-minute party. With three of the products from my Target Beauty Box, I can prep myself in an hour and be ready to party!

1. Fekkai Soleil Pre-Soleil Hair Mist Invisible Sun Filter

Fekkai Soleil Spary Target Beauty Box Last Minute Party Prep on Kirstin Marie

This mist is perfect to achieve frizz free, tamed, shiny hair. Nothing makes me feel more put together than great brows and an amazing hairstyle. This hair mist is nice and light weight, and really tames my fly aways.

2. Crest 3D White Whitestrips 1hr Express

Crest White Strips Target Beauty Box Last Minute Party prep on kirstin marie

A bright white smile is really welcoming, and really makes me feel good about myself when I reveal my pearly whites. I love to laugh and I love to smile, so having nice, clean, bright teeth is a must when it comes to last minute party prep.

3. Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara in Black

Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara Target Beauty Box last minute party prep on kirstin marie

Just before I head out the door, or before my guests arrive to my last-minute soiree, I swipe my lashes with this mascara to give my lashes an extra bit of oomph. I love the volume this mascara gives me (check it out on instagram!), and I really love that is goes on nice, smooth, and clump free.

Would you use any of these products for your last-minute party prep? I want to know! Leave me a comment below and let’s chat about it!

Easy like 1, 2, 3 with Target Beauty Box

Easy like 1, 2, 3 with Target Beauty Box on Kirstin Marie

Beauty products are an important part of my day to day routine. I have a handful of favorites that I generally stick to. Every once in a while, I will branch outside of my favorites box and try something new. You never know until you try, right? Thanks to social media, friends, other bloggers, and other resources, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with the amount of new and available beauty products that are released every day. That’s where the Target Beauty Box comes into play. The box is filled with 5 – 6 products that can be found at your local Target. Some of the products are full sized, which is a nice bonus, and some are trial size. Target Beauty offers a variety of make-up, hair care and skin care products for all ages, styles and budgets.

Target Beauty Box on Kirstin Marie #TargetStyle #BeautyBox

My Target Beauty Box had five products inside:

  • Clairol Hair Food Moisture Hair Mask Infused with Honey Apricot Fragrance
  • Crest 3D White Whitestrips 1hr Express
  • Olay Active Botanicals Moisturizing Toner and Moisturizing Day Lotion
  • Covergirl The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara in Black
  • Fekkai Soleil Pre-Soleil Hair Mist Invisible Sun Filter

I love how these products can easily fit into my day to day lifestyle. I can easily spritz my hair in the mornings with the Fekkai Soleil Pre-Soleil Hair Mist Invisible Sun Filter, and swipe a couple coats of the Covergirl The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara on my lashes before I head out the door. This way I’ve got all day to try the products, and see that it doesn’t add much time to my daily routine. The Target Beauty Box really helps me to be able to integrate different products into my day-to-day rotation. Are you eager to try new products in your day-to-day product rotation?
