Stripes & Ruffles

It's been warn in LA. It honestly feels like spring here. My go to outfit when it's a little warn outside is a pinstripe button down blouse and denim jeans. This outfit combination never goes out of style and it's perfect for spring but, t's time we step it up just a little.

A little ruffle goes a long way. The ruffles add dimension and style to the outfit.  They're fun and make an outfit interesting. Ruffles are eye catching and that's why I kept the rest of my look simple. I paired the top with jeans and accessorized with a simple brown belt and matching heels. I completed the look with my favorite accessory, sunglasses with a little gold detail on the sides.

Ruffles are fun but can be tricky to wear. For my busty ladies it's best to wear ruffles designed down the blouse like I'm wearing. It's also important not to wear too many ruffles because it can over power your bust and make you look bigger. If you have a smaller bust wear as many ruffles you like.  It will enhance your bust but make sure not to overdo it either.

Rock the Skort

Many trends from the 90's have made their way back like chokers and slip dresses. One of the 90's biggest trends that we tend to forget about is the skort. It's both a skirt and shorts. The design is unique with the skirt on the front that overlaps the shorts. They're fun and functional. You can dress them up with a pair of heels or dress them down with sneakers.

I honestly love the skirt design on the front because it hides your shorts when they start to rise up. The flap over the shorts kind of acts like a cover up (haha).

I wanted to bring back the skort this season and put together a dressy yet casual outfit. I paired my skort with a pinstripe button down blouse and tucked in the front. I completed my look with peep toe booties and aviators. This combo was easy to put together and very stylish.

Blushing this Spring

I'm blushing over blush. I think this color is pretty and feminine. I'm big on wearing black almost every day but time to time I love to throw on some color especially for spring. Blush is one of this year's hottest spring trends and I'm diving right in.

I took a little shopping spree at JCPenney. I love that they offer a variety of stylish and affordable clothing. I got these Liz Claiborne pants and Worthington top for a little over $50, definitely #SoWorthIt. It's such a steal and I love how this outfit came together.

Lace is one of my favorite fabrics its classic and chic- throw on a little blush and you have a match made in fashion heaven. I love everything about this blouse, the cut and another big trend this spring- bell sleeves. I balanced the softness of this top with a pair of black pants. 

As Coco Chanel once said "A women needs ropes and ropes of pearls" and I did just that, I completed this look with pearls and a pair of black pointy toe heels. When I wear a soft piece of clothing I like to balance the look with a little hardness and this dark lip does the trick.

All White Lookbook

Who said plus size girls can't wear all white? I've always hated this ridiculous rule and I'm here to break it and show you how.  I love this monochromatic look because it's chic an sophisticated. It's also always in style especially for this spring/summer. I put together 3 fun all white outfits to help inspire you how to pull off this style.

​I adore this white flared dress from Fashion to Figure. This dress is a must have in your wardrobe because you can dress it up or down. It literally goes with everything. It's soft, comfortable, and very flattering to any body type. This boho look was easy to put together- it's all in the accessories. To create this lovely all white bohemian look I put on a flower headband, some round retro sunglasses, and lace up booties.

Bring back your sexy with a lace-up dress. A dress with a lace-up details is sexy without showing too much. This dress is a show stopper so accessories where not needed just a pair of black single strap heels. Unfortunately, this dress sold out but I found similar dresses with a lace-up details down below.

Putting together white denim and a white blouse is a great way to pull off an all white look. It's super casual and chic. You get the comfort of the jeans and the blouse dresses up the look. A white hat and black single strap heels complete the look.

Bell Sleeves

It seems like lately my looks have a little bohemian element. Bare with me. I'm just in this boho kick. Festival season is in the air. Not only am I wearing boho everything but I love to wear my favorite pieces over and over again. Style wouldn't be fun without the challenge of wearing something over again and creating a completely different look.

Style Tip: Tuck in a flowy blouse for a better put together look and also to show off that figure.

I love this top so much I wanted to show you ladies another way to rock this bell sleeve blouse from Fashion to Figure. Last time you saw me paired this top with a floral skirt (here)- which created a little dressy and romantic look. Today's look is a bit more casual. By the way don't mess out on a good deal, this blouse is on sale! I wore this outfit when I went to go see the Voice. It was such a fun day. I had a great time! I got to see Christina Aguilera and Pharrell perform. This outfit was perfect- I was comfy, stylish but not too dressed up. Pairing this top with skinny jeans dressed down the blouse. A skinny scarf and rounds sunglasses completed this look. Here's a little secret, this scarf was actually a belt from some old pants. I thought it suited better as a scarf. What do you think?
