Joe Browns Collection at Simply Be

Hey Guys & Dolls,

If you’re like me you’ve already begun looking for gifts for the holidays (also the earlier the better who wants to deal with those crowds right). It’s not easy shopping around for the one you love especially us ladies. Some of us just have a particular set of things we like. I’m a plus size gal and sometimes it can get hard for my boyfriend to want to get me clothing because…well he isn’t sure on what works for me or doesn’t. One  site that’s never failed me though is Simply Be.

They are a Plus Size clothing retailer with various collections along with their own line. It’s truly one of my favorite places to shop and my boyfriend loves how easy it is to navigate.

SimplyBe and CityStyleLife recently decided on a collaboration so people can get to know the Joe Browns Collection on the site. They offer amazing dresses as well as booties and coats.

Per the site:

For something different, Joe Browns plus size clothing is the key. With unique shapes, prints and colors, this collection is a great addition to any closet.

It’s quite true. I don’t see much in my size that is as unique as this collection is. Today I wanted to highlight my favorite piece from the whole line. The JOE BROWNS ROYAL CHECK JACKET. It’s an amazing jacket that works so well because it features a lot of autumn like colors and detailing.


Some points about it:

  • Polyester. Lining: Polyester.

  • Length 26in/66cm.

  • Machine washable.

It retails at $132.00 on

Take a look at how I styled it:


Item Description:

“A truly remarkable jacket which combines all the elements we love – a great base fabric is worked into a flattering shape and then embellished with our distinctive touches. A Joe Browns classic we are proud of.”

I adored the color scheme as well as the detailing on the buttons and lapel. It’s a fun piece for the unique woman.
