Tribal Maxis and Kimonos

Hey guys,

How have you been doing? I've literally been in a funk lately. I really haven't felt like doing much of anything besides reading and being a recluse. If it wasn't for my Husband, I literally would go nowhere I just haven't felt like doing much of anything. Everything just seems like a hassle.

As far as clothing choices, they have been reflecting my mood and I have just been picking up no hassle, easy to wear, comfortable items. You guys know I love a good maxi dress and anything I love I buy in complete excess so I am wearing yet another maxi dress (that I don't need) . I had to buy this dress when it came back on the site because last year it sold out and like they say nothing haunts you like the things you didn't buy. I decided to pair it with this chiffon black Kimono that I've had since last Summer but actually forgot about until I moved and found a lot of old items.

I love this maxi dress mostly for the print I am tribal print crazy...but I also love the faux wrap front and the belt that cinches in the waist. It definitely in my opinion slims a curvy frame.

I know that my style isn't the most trendsetting nowadays but I hope that for those of you that are looking for everyday wear or "real life" looks that my blog can continue to inspire you.

Yellow, Fringe, and Stripes

The temps in my city feel more like Summer than Spring but in the office I work in it's always cool or cold so I can still wear Spring inspired looks without burning up.

I love yellow and oftentimes it's hard to find pieces I love in my size so when I see it I snap it up super quick. This time around I spotted this yellow blazer...I had no idea how I wanted to style it I just knew I wanted it. When I finally got around to wearing it I decided to do a simple look and style it with a striped skirt, and a black fringe bag. I almost added a touch of leopard but chickened out....mixing prints is not one of the things I'm good at. \

 I love the color of the blazer, but the fabric leaves much to be desired. If I had to purchase it all over again I probably would but only because I didn't have a yellow blazer at all but I really wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a quality yellow blazer that is more structured.

Casually Caped

This past weekend was so gorgeous I just had to take advantage of it and get out of the House. Most people get out of the house on weekends but normally weekends are reserved for housecleaning, reading, and just enjoying my Home and date nights for us are usually done during the week since my Husband's off days fall during the week.

I had a lunch and mall date with my sister on this day and later that night we hosted our first house party for the big fight (and yes I was on team MayWeather wooooppppp) so I wanted a look that could literally go from day to night and could function comfortably but still look stylish.

I rarely wear jeans or flats on the blog and I'm trying to incorporate more casual looks because I know a lot of you are not into heels. With flats I prefer them to have a pointy toe.....and lately I have been finding flats that I really like and that I can wear for style as well as function.

I pulled out this cape blazer that I LOVEEEE and paired it with a leopard printed top, skinny jeans, and pink flats for a pop of color. I also grabbed my favorite structured black handbag. This look is simple but I liked the way it turned out.

Simple Sundays

Sunday I posted this photo on my Instagram and also on my Facebook fan-page with outfit deets but for those of you who don't follow me on other social media outlets I wanted to be sure you didn't miss out. I was headed out for Sunday brunch and only had time to take a quick photo and not an actual "blog shoot". (Really my Husband was ready to go and eat and was NOT excited about taking pics lollll)

This look will pretty much be my simple days go to look easy casual look.......kimono and a maxi skirt. I absolutely love maxi skirts and I'm hoping to find more colors but you know when I saw this one in pink I had to snag it.

What is your casual days uniform?

SnakeSkin for Spring

A lot of my readers are afraid to wear their arms out during the Spring and Summer. I say why not? If we are already plus size it's not like hiding our arms will make society see us any different.  You can hide every imperfection you have and someone will still have something to say.

My Mother works with blind people for a living so I'm just thankful I wake up every morning and I can see the things we complain about. We nitpick at ourselves wanting to change this or that and some people in the world wish they could see anything even the things we wish we could change about ourselves. Celebrate your imperfections even if you are working to change them. The sun is coming out and your arms deserve to get some sun.

On to the look....with this look I decided to go back to the basics. A peplum and a pencil skirt are a wardrobe staple for me. It's a no fail go to date night look.....perfect work look....and to me a look that anyone can pull off regardless of body type.

I had been eyeing this skirt for the longest but the color on the website looked more brown than pink...but when it went on sale for 14 bucks with free shipping, I had to give it a shot and I was glad it looked more peachy than beige. The perfect snakeskin print for Spring! I paired it with a basic black peplum and some basic black pumps for date night. I hope you like!!

Are you afraid of wearing your arms out? Are you working towards getting over that fear this Summer?

A Drugstore Dupe for MAC Heroine Lipstick

Hi Guys

I'm back with another beauty post and this one is especially for the budget beauties. After reading this post on the Drea Daily Blog (I literally go visit her blog everyday to see what she's talking about check her out guys) I was reminded of a drugstore lip balm that I had been wanting to try but never got around to it.

After I read that post the next time I went in CVS I literally grabbed the last one to see if it lived up to the hype. I picked up the Revlon Matte Lip Balm in Shameless. I absolutely love purple lippies so I HAD to try it out finally.

I love it because as soon as I put it on my lips I realized it's almost a dead on dupe for MAC Heroine. Here is a swatch so you can get a better idea.  Shameless is also anywhere from 6-10 bucks depending on where you purchase vs 16.00 Heroine. 

Here is how it looks on me with no liner.

You can also pair it with a liner I recommend Currant from MAC, Here it is paired with currant liner. 

I hope that this post gives you an idea of what to expect Shameless to look like on you if your skintone is similar to mine. It has a minty scent after application so if you don't like mint you may not care for this. Overall, I like this for everyday wear but I do prefer Heroine. The formula is different and to me the Heroine looks more purple in person even tho they look almost the same in pictures. Would I buy it again? Yes and I plan to try a few more colors in the future.....

The Long Wrap Dress

Wrap dresses are universally flattering on every body type...but especially on fuller figured women. I was dying to blog this dress for you guys last week but the rainy, dreary, gloomy weather didn't permit it. On this day the sun was out so bright it was almost too bright and hot to blog (welcome to Mississippi where it goes straight from Winter to Summer) but I made it work.

I am falling back in love with brights so I decided wear shoes in the same color as the dress and pop it with a bright green clutch. This dress is super classy with a hint of sexy with the low cleavage and the optional slit. My legs leave much to be desired so I'm less inclined to wear a high split but for my leggy curvy girls this dress can be adjusted so the high split is more visible. You tall girls would love this I have to wear heels with it so if you are tall and want a long dress this one is for you.

I will be shopping my closet heavy this Spring/Summer for accessories. When new seasons come in we can be tempted to spend recklessly and get all new things but chances are we already have cute things we can mix and match with different looks. I don't mind my readers seeing me in the same accessories with different looks......I shop my closet to get the most out of my items.

Stylenote: This dress is very soft and doesn't stick to you. You can push the sleeves up for a 3/4 sleeve look if you desire and it also features a high split. If you are my height around 5'2 you will need heels...if you are tall this will be perf for you. If I could I would own this dress in all the colors.

This dress was provided for review but it did not change or alter my opinion on it.
