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.

Live To Sparkle

Live to Sparkle...what does this mean to you? To me this saying means live to be yourself because being yourself brings out your own unique sparkle. I love this saying and living by it, literally! These jeans are life. I can't get over the sequin design. I love that with every step I take I literally, sparkle.

Boyfriend jeans are a wardrobe essential. Something about the fit creates that chill and chic look. Now add a little sequin and they're show stoppers. These dazzling denims are from 2020 Ave's new plus size collection. The fit is great. They sit right above my belly button, comfy, and stretchy.

You can never own to many white tees. They're versatile and come in different styles. This one has the cutest eyelashes and knot detail. A knot is a great style hack because it helps accentuate the waist. Making you go from boxy to curvy.

A pair of clear frames added a fun and edgy finish to the overall look.

3 Looks 1 Mesh Dress

Lately, I've seen this mesh dress everywhere. I first saw it on Kim Kardashian at the MTV VMA's and now in stores. I've seen in red, white and my personal favorite black. I thought it would be a great idea to show you how versatile this piece can be. I put together 3 looks styled completely differently.

Since its still summer, I thought a swimsuit look would be ideal. A mesh dress is one of my favorite layer pieces for a fun poolside outfit. You get the coverage you want but still get a little sneak to what's underneath.

A dress doesn't necessarily need to be worn as a dress. I paired this little number with a pair of distressed shorts. I accessorized this outfit with a double buckle belt, a wide fedora hat, and super tall platform heels. With these accessories and shorts this dress has a fun boho vibe.

Be a little daring and wear just your bra and high waited panties under the mesh dress. Layer a floral print duster to elevate the look. The little black dress never looked so edgy and sexy.

A Simple Classic

There's nothing quite as all-American than a white t-shirt and blue jeans. Separately, they're versatile pieces but together they make a simple yet classic outfit that will never go out of style.

I was in LA last week and wanted to wear something simple and casual. I took a modern twist on this American classic by pairing my white crew neck with cropped wide leg jeans with a distressed hem.

The white tee and jean combo is effortlessly chic and is a combination that can be worn any day of the year and season. It's also very easy to layer over like I did with a blazer. I threw on a black blazer over my shoulders and finished the look with loafer mules.

These jeans were a fun DIY project. I bought wide leg jeans from Target and then cropped them. Here is a DIY video that helped me cut and distress my jeans (click here).
