WorkWear Wednesday

I know a lot of you guys want work-wear ideas and I had planned on putting more work-wear on the blog but in between working full time, and juggling being able to schedule time to take blog pics and manage family life it's hard to shoot work-wear looks in addition to the other looks I try to get on the blog weekly. My Husband is my photographer and he also works full time so it can be tough to schedule time to take pics.

Since I can't schedule time to take workwear looks right now I will start making collages with workwear ideas and then let you guys know where you can get similar items to recreate the work look. With the outfit below, I just bought a fuschia cardigan from Forever 21 and this is how I will be wearing mine to the office. Check the links below to recreate this look if you like it.

Blind Me Baby With Your Neon Lights

Last night my family treated me to dinner for my Birthday. My Birthday actually falls on a Monday this year and I hate Mondays so I am celebrating this weekend and plan to do something very low key on Monday. The older I get the more I just want to spend my special days and Holidays surrounded by people who genuinely love me and add something positive to my life. Getting glammed up and enjoying a nice dinner or taking an amazing vacation with my Hubby or my sister trumps all now.

I decided to keep it classy and wear black and white with a touch of Neon. When I saw this chartreuse clutch I HAD to have it. A lot of neon clutches can tend to look cheap and it was the main reason I've passed up on most of the ones I had been seeing. They were either too shiny, too plastic looking, or too something. I am very picky when it comes to shoes and handbags because they can either cheapen your outfit or make a very inexpensive outfit go from drab to fab. I paired my look with a pair of black pointy toe pumps (I'm back obsessed with all things pointy toe I'm warning you guys now) to finish off my look.

Stylenote: This skirt from BooHoo fits great. It's made from thick ponte knit material that and the length is perfect for me. It did stretch a bit as the night went on so I think it's safe to size down with this one if you prefer a tighter fit.

Stripes and Yellow

I told you guys this Summer Maxis would be HEAVY in rotation so I'm back today with yet another maxi. I loved this one because it's black and white striped. I wear both horizontal and vertical stripes but I love the vertical stripes on this dress because they have a slimming effect on my plus sized frame. I know some people are down with the f**k flattering movement but I'm always looking for things that flatter my figure. As with any other black and white ensemble all you need is a pop of color to make a statement so I opted to pop it with a yellow clutch and I threw on my favorite Summer Statement sunnies.

This was the perfect no fuss look for a spontaneous date night with the Hubby. If you follow my IG u saw the food I posted from our date at Ruth's Chris. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was divine!!!! My Birthday isn't until the end of this Month but he and I have been celebrating it all Month long.

Concert Colors

As you guys know this is my Birthday Month and during the 4th of July Weekend my Husband and I went to a Boosie concert. I am a HUGE Boosie fan so it was the perfect kickoff to my Birthday celebrations. I wore a pair of old leggings with a vibrant top that has a shark-bite hem. I'm typically not a fan of shark-bite but it's great to me for leggings because it covers my bum and allows me to wear leggings as pants.

The top has SO much going on I decided to break up the color with a thin gold plated belt. I kept the colors going with my favorite blue pumps. This look was a hit at the concert but I kept a pair of blue suede flats in my purse just in case. NEVER go to a concert without a pair of backup shoes and always try to make sure that the backup shoe is the same color as your go to pump so if you have to change shoes you will still look stylish.

Fab Find of The Week

As the Summer temps rise so have the hemlines. For those of you looking for a cute and sexy bodycon dress for that hot Summer party I got you covered.

I saw this cute dress on Forever 21. I think would look hot with strappy black sandals for a night on the town. 

Would you rock this dress?

Boho Chic

As the temps continue to rise my biggest objectives this Summer are to stay comfy and cool. One of the easiest combos I've been putting together is Kimonos and Bermuda shorts. I love the look of short shorts but I feel most comfortable in Bermuda length shorts. It's great to take risks but I prefer to take my risks with prints and color combos vs wearing things that are inappropriate for my body type. I prefer to stay classy and modest and leave some things to the imagination.

I love the dainty pink flowers on this Kimono because that is my favorite color so I decided to highlight that by wearing a Fuchsia clutch. Accessories make all the difference in bringing a simple look to life. Even tho I love my beloved platforms I decided this day to wear my single sole pointy toe heel. Remember back in '08 when they were "out of style"? It's amazing how everything in fashion always comes back in style again. This is one of my favorite looks to date and I felt so boho chic.

Taste The Rainbow

The first day of Summer for me was amazing. I paid tribute to the first day of my favorite season by wearing all the colors of the rainbow. I purchased this skirt last year on sale just as Summer ended and never got to wear it.....and I also shopped for my closet for this peplum top I wore last year for my Birthday. Nothing like finding new "old" things in your closet.
