Pink Pinup (A Chic and Curvy Review)

For our final Anniversary dinner, I decided to wear this dress that was gifted to me from Chic and Curvy. As you guys know I never review or accept items from boutiques that I wouldn't purchase from with my own money and Chic and Curvy is one of the only stores that I accept complimentary clothing from because a lot of the items are my style and I would definitely purchase from them with my hard earned money.

 I am not really a bodycon girl anymore so this dress was a step outside of my comfort zone, especially being a bright colored bodycon. I typically stick with darker bodycon dresses because that's what I feel more comfortable wearing. When I was looking in my closet for a clutch I came back to this colorful clutch you have been seeing on the blog for the past 2 or 3 years in the Spring/Summer and I STILL am in love with this clutch years later. When I pick clutches I love bright colors or printed clutches because they are classic and will always distinguish your look from others even if you see someone with a similar look on when you step out on the town.

This dress was the perfect length for me and I love that it doesn't stick to my flaws like some bodycons can. I wore Hooked Up Shapewear underneath to smooth things out. I hate a thigh shaper that cuts into the leg so this one is like a high waist brief that leaves my legs free from that horrible imprint. I love the color, fabric, off the shoulder detail, and my Husband's reaction when he saw me in it. Since I had so much color going on I decided to wear a neutral colored pump. If you have somewhere you're going and you want to be a for sure knockout, check out Chic and Curvy and tell them Style4Curves sent you! I truly felt like a plus size pin-up in this dress and it restored my confidence in wearing bodycon style dresses. This post wraps up my Anniversary week style I hope you enjoyed my picks!

A First Time For Everything

I said I was going to keep my memories private from my Anniversary trip, and I still will but I wanted to post about a fear I overcame during this trip in hopes that it will help someone else.

Most people would assume because I blog taking pictures would be easy for me, but as with any other woman we all have fears about certain items. Mine was being photographed in swimwear. I have been wearing plus size swimwear since GabiFresh made the Fatkini popular but I have always been afraid to post a picture of me in mine on the Internet. Being sans clothing is very personal for me even on the beach but my Husband told me I was making a bigger deal out of it than it really was and he hoped that I came out of my shell and posted some pics on my blog of me in my swimwear so I decided to try it.

I actually felt liberated after seeing the photos he took and walking around without my cover-up when I got in to swim wasn't as bad as I imagined it would be. The key for me was finding something that was the perfect mix of showing a little skin without feeling completely immodest so the fatkini/sarong combo worked for me. I don't have the smallest stomach so the VBO (visible belly outline) doesn't work for me when I'm not swimming (and one day I might feel comfortable with it) but for now I prefer to not walk around with everything out for all the world to see so outside of the water I keep my sarong on.

If you are nervous about wearing swimwear it's probably like it was for me all in your head. Don't let your inner insecurities ruin your vacations....the things we hate about ourselves someone else may be looking at and appreciating. You don't have to have the perfect body to have a perfect vacation....just let go and enjoy yourself I know I did.

My Husband and I celebrate 2 years of marriage on today >3

Are any of you afraid of wearing a swimsuit on the beach? What steps are you going to take to overcome that fear?

Sarong- Torrid

The Leopard Wrap Midi Skirt

Hey guys!!!!

Tomorrow we will be headed to our mini vacay destination in the Sunshine State and this will be one of the looks I will be rocking for a dinner date. I lean for more conservative looks these days for Anniversary looks as opposed to the sophistiratchet looks I reached for in our earlier anniversary dating days. I like to rock a bodycon every now and then but overall I don't really do the skin baring looks anymore. I feel sexier when I leave things to the imagination. I love seeing other plus women rocking skin baring items but personally, I have to stick with things that I feel comfortable in. My style is about wearing what I like and what I feel comfortable in regardless of what is trendy.

As you guys know I will never have too many pencil of course when I saw this one that was not only animal print in black and white but also a wrap style I HADDDD to get it. I love the print.The deal was sweeter when I found a coupon code that enabled me to snag it at $20.00 off the original price. Me and this skirt were meant to be! I kept the look simple with a black cami top,  black blazer and a coordinating red lip/shoe combo. Less can be more sometimes......................I will be back next week to show you guys more of my anniversary week looks!

Spring Essential: The Striped Maxi

One of my favorite Spring/Summer essentials is a maxi. I love them in all prints, colors, and styles because they are super easy to throw on and go but still look put together. This maxi because of the low cut front, I wouldn't wear to the office but I definitely will be rocking this on date nights, and summer outings.

I have an anniversary mini vacay coming up and this will be one of my looks. I hate trying to blog on vacation so I will be pre-shooting some of the looks I plan to wear so you guys can have an idea of what I will be rocking on vacay because I tend to keep my vacation moments as part of our personal photo collection. I think in the social media age, we share so many of our private moments we don't realize that sometimes we need to scale back and save some of those memories and moments. I truly like to unplug as much as possible on vacay and just truly enjoy being in the moment.

This maxi is black and white striped so I kept it simple and paired it with a black blazer and pulled out my Neon clutch I last wore on the blog for my 30th. Black and white with a pop of color never gets old for me and it definitely never goes out of style.

StyleNote: This dress runs big so order down a size and if you are short like me you may need to get it hemmed it runs super long.

Fashion Find: Plus Size Pink Blazer

Hi guys,

Since my recent post with the pink blazer and the leopard printed pencil skirt, a lot of you have expressed that you have been on the hunt for a pink blazer. Well look no more.....

I found this gorgeous pink blazer on Ashley Stewart and it is available in all sizes right now. Bright colored blazers are hard to find in plus size so jump on this while you can!! This blazer can be paired with a multitude of things and to me it's an absolute must for a Spring wardrobe (but I may be biased because pink is my favorite color)  It also comes in black. 

Until Next Time,

Leopard (Continued) : The Printed Blazer

Hi guys!!!!!

I missed you guys so much and I didn't intend for a week break from blogging to turn into almost a month away.  I really appreciate the ones who asked when I was going to return (Hey Drea girl!! ( ...a lot of times when I ponder if I want to keep blogging comments like that let me know people truly read my posts. The weather was colder than we are used to in Mississippi (we had snow and ice here and we NEVER have either of those) and I am not about that freezing for blog photos's not as easy as some bloggers make it look to blog in the Winter. I have a ton of respect for bloggers that do it in the ice and snow.

Now that the temps are going back to normal, the sun is back shining, and Daylight Savings time is right around the corner I hope to blog a little more consistently going into the Spring and Summer. As you can see my leopard obsession is still going strong and when I was shopping my closet for a Big Krit Concert my Husband and I went to, I rediscovered this leopard blazer I had purchased and forgotten all about. I bought it on an end of Summer sale last year for a cool 20 bucks. Since I found it in my closet I swear I've been wearing it everywhere. For this outing I paired it with a black bodycon dress and some cobalt pumps.

Pink + Leopard: Valentine's 2015

This year was a super low key Valentine's for my Husband and I will and will probably be a tradition from here on out. We celebrated all week going on various day I came home to him bbqing, one day we went bowling, we went on a dinner date, etc....and on Valentine's Day I cooked him breakfast...and we just chilled in the House all day and avoided all of the crowds. We ate some super cute heart shaped pizzas that night and watched the Dunk Contest in the Mancave. (If you follow me on IG you probably saw the pics already). It's amazing when you can celebrate consumer Holidays at home with one another.

This was a look I wore to one of our early dinner dates during the week. Of course you know my favorite color is pink so I had to wear pink and I paired it with leopard and black. This look isn't over the top sexy but my Hubby loves the mix of sexy but classy. This look literally took me from desk to dinner and I shopped my closet for this look as well. The skirt still had tags on it and the jacket is old but one of my alltime favorite blazers. I kept my makeup look soft and sweet and added a hint of pink to my clear lipgloss with the Miley Cyrus Viva Glam MAC lippie I purchased recently. I am sooo ready for Spring to arrive I'm ready to get back to wearing vibrant colors.
