When I found out that the tutu was going to be the next 30+ Style Collaboration, I was like “no way Jose!”. I’ve seen multiple bloggers looking wonderful rocking a tutu but I couldn’t see myself doing it. I’ve accepted there are some trends that are just not for me (me and harem pants will NEVER mix!) and I had put tutus in that category….until now. As we all know, sometimes rising to a challenge helps us to grow as a person. Participating in this collaboration helps me shatter the myth that women over 40 don’t have fun with fashion…yes we do! We like to be on trend just like everyone else! Dont let that “dressing your age” crap stifle you and stop you from looking your absolute best. Remember….STYLE HAS NO AGE OR SIZE!
Check out how the other bloggers in the 30+ Collaboration styled their tutus!
I have to confess…I’m addicted to Pinterest. I can spend hours scrolling through various boards, pinning all kinds of things to my heart’s content. During one of my Pinterest binges, I came across the lovely Caitlin of A Little Dash of Darling. Her post instantly spoke to me because lately I’ve been having a serious love affair with full skirts. It seems Caitlin is just as smitten as I am and her full skirt outfits are wonderful. So I decided to put my casual Friday spin on her ensemble and make Caitlin my style inspiration today!
If you are on Pinterest (and addicted as I am), follow me so we can have some pinning fun!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I’m still adjusting to life without my laptop. I never considered myself to be someone who is dependent on a computer but this situation has proven me wrong! While my laptop is being repaired, I’ve decided not to let it stop me from posting . While I can’t post an outfit, I can share with you some of my Instagram pics! If you are Instagram follow me at grownandcurvywoman. Hope to see you there!
Have a great day!

I hope everyone is enjoying the three day holiday weekend so far. I’ve been spending this holiday enjoying not doing one darn thing! To me, lazy weekends are the best!
Now that Summer is pretty much over (even the temperature is changing tomorrow), I thought it be cool to pick my favorite outfits of the season. This Summer I was more open to trying to new color combinations than I was last year. I’ve decided that no matter the season I will always add color to my outfit. I will be color blocking to the day I die! LOL
What are some of your favorite outfits from this Summer?
Have a wonderful day!
Simply Be peplum dress
H&M animal print top & SWAK maxi skirt
sleeveless INC denim shirt & Gap floral maxi dress
Whoever created the saying “you need a vacation from the vacation” wasn’t lying! Im still daydreaming about exotic drinks, warm sun and sandy beaches. We get so caught up with our jobs, responsibilities and family we forget to take care of ourselves. It felt wonderful not be worried about stuff and just be in the moment. My time away reminded me that its okay to take a break from life. I promised myself to try and go on a vacation at least every 6-8 months. I won’t let another 2 1/2 years go by before I take another break.
How do you “get away from it all”?
Have a wonderful day!
P.S. Yes I am wearing the same outfit I wore on my vacation today! :)
