Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a fun holiday weekend!

On Memorial Day, my nephew Frederick and I headed to Atlantic City for the Beyonce concert (he had tickets). After we checked in, we decided to hang out on the beach. I usually avoid bathing suit pictures but after seeing other plus size bloggers embrace their wonderful bodies in “fatkinis”, I decided to show my suited body. This is my FIRST time wearing a tankini. While I’m nervous about putting myself out there, I feel I need to do this. This is huge for me because for the first time in my life I accept my body.

Have a wonderful day!!!!

TGIF everyone! I hope everyone has wonderful plans for this holiday weekend. I’m looking forward to hanging with friends and relaxing on the beach in Atlantic City.

A few posts ago I wore one of my maxi dresses as a skirt (see here) and I got such a positive response I decided to do it again! This time around I decided to use an old sundress I bought from the Avenue. While I loved the pattern of the dress, I never wore it because it was too tight in the bust area. Eventually it found its way to the ” take to Goodwill” pile until I spotted it this morning. Since I won’t be wearing it as a dress again, I cut off the top portion of it leaving the elastic band to hold up the skirt. I added a brown belt to give my homemade skirt a cleaner look.

Would you try making your dress into a skirt? Have relaxing and safe holiday weekend!

Happy Hump Day everyone!

Next to red, yellow is one of my favorite colors. It’s such a vibrant color that instantly brightens any outfit by wearing it . So when I saw this yellow pencil skirt from Eloquii I knew I had to add it to my closet. I didn’t want to wear a black shirt with the skirt (reminds me of a bumble bee! LOL) so I paired it with my floral print blouse from Dorothy Perkins. I think the colors in the blouse pop against my yellow skirt. I wanted to keep my promise to dress more colorfully and I think I’ve achieved that!

What do you like to pair yellow with? Have a great evening!

P.S. Special thanks to my BFF for taking my pics today (she threatened to get me if I didn’t give her a shout out! LOL)

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the fabulous weather!

This week I’m all about bold prints, stripes and color. Lately I’ve slipped back into my old habit of wearing dark colors. The problem with old habits is that they are very easy to return to. Old habits are so comfortable and familiar that before you know it you’re sucked back in. Making change and sticking with it can be a lot of work but as they say “no pain, no gain!” My outfit today is a commitment to change and breaking old habits.

How do you combat old habits? Have a great evening!

TGIF!!!

This past week, I was going through my sandals and I noticed something…they were all FLAT! Over the years I convinced myself that I would fall if I wore wedges or heels, so I shied away from them. Now Ive decided to move outside my comfort zone and add some height to my summer shoe wardrobe. Here are a few pairs of shoes I’m loving right now.

Are you going to give wedges or heels a try this summer? Have a great weekend!
