Turning A Corner

Happy Monday all!

According to weather forecasts, the weather is slowly turning a corner and I’m here for it! Spring is only a mere 18 days away and I’m getting a jump on it by wearing this flirty skirt from IGIGI.  I’ve been looking for a polka dot skirt so I’m happy that IGIGI decided to make one! The Loretta Skirt in Downtown Dot is apart of their new Spring 2015 collection that is chock full pretty florals and fun prints.  Check out IGIGI’s Spring collection here!

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday: Spring Preview

TGIF all!

Now that Spring is a mere 22 days away (YAY!!!), many plus size retailers are rolling out their Spring collections.  One of my favorite retailers Eloquii debuted their newest collection Code Blue this week. The collection has a 70’s vintage flair with modern touches  to it which I like. While it’s very much on trend, there is something for everyone in this new collection.  Check out the images below and shop it here!

Needless to say my outfit  today was inspired by the new collections. For a second I forgot that it’s still frigid outside! I can’t wait for a perfect Spring day to wear this outfit.  HURRY UP SPRING!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

For Your Consideration

Happy Monday all!

The countdown to Spring is on! In honor of my FAVORITE season, I want to share with you some fun prints to consider for your Spring wardrobe.  Spring is the perfect time to experiment with wearing prints.  Add a polka dot shirt to a pencil skirt or  pair floral ankle pants with a denim shirt to welcome the new season.  These simple substitutions can extend your current wardrobe past Winter and into Spring!

What prints are you ready to try this Spring?

Have a great evening/day!

“They Say It’s Your Birthday…”

Happy Tuesday all!

Today is my 43rd birthday and I am so grateful to God for another year of life.  With each year that passes, I’ve become more content and satisfied with life.  I’m looking forward to all the wonderful things my 43rd year will bring.   Even though  I’m snowed in today (BOO!), I’m not gonna let it damper my special day!

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday: Happy Valentine’s Day!

TGIF all!

Since Valentine’s Day is all about love, I use the day to  acknowledge my family and friends whom I love dearly.   I didn’t always feel this way and used to spend the holiday being sad about my lack of a mate (back in college me & my gals would dress in black and eat A LOT of Ben & Jerry’s! LOL).  Over the years,  I’ve learned that just because I don’t have romantic love doesn’t mean I’m not loved.  The love of my family and friends  completes me and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

So celebrate Valentine’s Day with your family and friends too! Love definitely makes the world go around!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!

Have a great weekend!

Casual Friday: Count Your Stripes

TGIF all!

In Eloquii’s latest post, they asked me and other bloggers about our love of stripes. According to “fashion rules”, stripes are a no-no for plus size women because they  make us look bigger. These rules will having you believing that you’ll turn into She Hulk if you wear stripes!  I find this ridiculous and confining.   If you want to wear stripes…Do it! I love stripes and have no plans on ever giving them up! Take that She Hulk!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Cape Redux

Happy Monday all!

The last cape I wore was a white crochet number when I was about 5 years old.  As an adult I’ve admired of them afar until I stumbled upon this  Ann Taylor trench cape last month.  I immediately snatched it up because I knew it would make a great transition jacket.  I ordered the  XXL (size 18)  and it fit perfectly.  While its way too cold to wear it now, this cape will be in HEAVY rotation once Spring comes around!

Have a wonderful day!
