NIC + ZOE - Working Mom Plus Size Fashion

Thanks to NIC + ZOE for sponsoring this post.   All opinions are my own. 

In the last 6 months my role at my "day job" has changed quite a bit.  I am beyond blessed with a great promotion that now has me managing not only a case management database but also our office support team.  With this role, I felt like I needed to dress the part but that is where I felt conflicted.

My agency is relatively casual but with this promotion I do feel like I need to be professional however, my "Mom Closet" disagrees.  Look, I am proud of my status - working mom - but even when I hit the office building I have to be prepared to be mom as well as a professional working woman.  Recently, I was introduced to NIC + ZOE - a great woman's clothing company that gets our need to feel and look great for the office but also be ready for any mom jobs that might come up.  Oh and the best part about NIC + ZOE?  They offer a great line of clothing for plus sizes!  THANK YOU!

When building my new Working Mom wardrobe I decided to focus on the basics first.  This includes a few nice pairs of black pants, a grey wrap dress, a flattering skirt and high quality leggings.  All of these basics can be worn with a number of different accessories and tops -which means I don't have to wear the same things over and over again.

Now comes the tops.  This is where I feel the most freedom when dressing myself.  I usually pick items that are lose fitting, great patterns and flattering colors.  NIC + ZOE offers so many great tops for Plus Size professionals like me.  Some are more casual but could totally be dressed up and other tops are the perfect easy top for the office.  I am loving NIC + ZOE style - all of the tops are different than most of the items you find in stores.  These are just a few of my favorites, believe me, I have plenty more in my wish list!

I believe that the items listed above will not only have me feeling great walking into my office every morning but I will also be comfortable stopping at the grocery store with the kids after an evening at Taekwondo practice.  Mom's we are pretty amazing, our wardrobe should be too!

  1. OK. I love the choices. I work from home most of the time but I have to get dressed to go to church and for meetings with clients so I need to keep some extras around to get dressed up. These are great choices.

  2. It is hard to find really good plus size fashions! I love a lot of these choices! That asymmetrical sweater is gorgeous! I am going to have to check into this.

  3. I just checked out their site and really like their apparel pieces. I also like that they offer a great selection of plus size clothing. I think their prices are a little on the high side though.

  4. So many great pieces! I love the white angled shirt with seguins going across the front. I've never hear of Nic & Zoe, but I'm off to check them out. I wear a few plus sized clothes, but they're always so hard to find stylish ones.

  5. I'm a working mom myself and it's a challenge to combine power dressing and mom style. I love the long tops that can be paired with leggings, so comfy!
