Stripes

Can you say oh la la. I feel like a girl in Paris in this outfit. The beret definitely adds that European flare but the whole outfit screams Paris (well at least in my head haha) I’m obsessed with this look. Everything from the lace detail on the blouse to the side slits of the pants. 

Stripes were strong during spring and summer and are even stronger for fall. Stripes in my opinion just never go out of style. There is just something about these vertical and horizontal lines that can add a preppy, nautical or an edgy vibe to your outfit. 

As a plus size girl I’ve been told to stay away from stripes but I’ve never been one to listen. I personally love anything striped. Stripes can be flattering to many body types. It’s all about the way you wear them. I personally love vertical stripes. I feel they are more flattering and elongate the body.

Let’s talk about these pants. First they’re a great deal at Target for only $32.99. They have an elastic waist and have some stretch to them. I feel super comfy in them and love how I can dress them up or down. The only con would be they are a little to long for me (I’m 5’3) but nothing a pair of heels can't fix.

This look is all about the pants, that’s why I keep the rest of my outfit simple. I paired the pants with a loose fitting button up blouse, a fun beret and heels. The sunglasses were my finishing touch that adds that edgy element I love.

Mini Skirts For Fall

Fall is finally here! It's the return of jackets, scarves, beanies and me. It has been some time since my last post but I'm glad to be back and have my first style post be for fall. 

Not only do pumpkin spice lattes return but it's the biggest season for fashion and trends. That doesn't necessarily mean I'm ready to give up one of my favorite summer trends, the mini skirt. 

Mini skirts were fun for summer and can continue to be fun for fall. Wear them with tights and hosiery for an easy summer to fall transition. The tights add a little warmth to your outfit. You can also pair mini skirts with a comfy sweater and booties for a stylish fall assemble.

I paired this skirt from Forever 21 with a black crew neck instead of a sweater since it's still a little warm in LA. One of my favorite fall trends from last year is back! Yes, I'm referring to over the knee boots. They made a statement last year and continue to do so paired with this button down skirt.

Cabbie hats are a huge trend for fall. They're comfy and versatile.  This faux suede cabbie hat compliments the look and adds that extra fall element.
