Summer Dresses for Under $40

Happy Hump Day all!

I can’t believe Summer is right around the corner! With warmer temps it can be challenging to keep cool while looking fab, so I scoured the internet for affordable and stylish dresses for work and play.  These dresses will allow you to remain comfortable and chic in the heat. My personal favorite is the graphic print dress from Macy’s which is currently on sale for $35.  With prices like these, you ‘ll have enough left over for a cold treat!

Have a wonderful day!

Spring Trends IV: Emerald Green

TGIF all and  Happy Good Friday!

This is the last week of the Spring Trends challenge and the final trend on the list is emerald green.  If you haven’t heard,  Pantone has crowned it the color of the season (side note: Who is Pantone? Lol).  I decided to end this thing with a bang and combine emerald-green with ALL the trends (black & white, floral and leather) featured in the challenge!

Please check out the other bloggers participating in the challenge for their take on emerald green:

Happy Hump Day all!

Spring is here! Woo hoo! I’m so looking forward to ditching the down coat and wearing bright colors! .  Even though the weather here in Philadelphia is FAR from Spring-like, I still wanted to wear something colorful to mark the occasion.

Speaking of Spring, IGGI  has debuted  their new Spring Awakening collection that embodies the season with vibrant colors, lush draping and gorgeous prints. In true IGGI style  these  beautiful  dresses highlight and celebrate the curvy/plus body.   As you know I’m a sucker for prints, so the Carmelle wrap dress (in the second picture) is a standout for me. What is your favorite?

Spring Trends for Under $45: The Work Edition

Happy Monday everyone!

Since everyone liked my previous Spring Trends post I decided to do another one focusing on workwear. I realize when I do these posts I neglect to include shoes, so this time I added styles that are under $45. These pieces are interchangable with one another to get maximum usage out of the clothes. Also these pieces can easily be incorporated into your current Spring/Summer wardrobe.

What additions will you be making to your Spring/Summer wardrobe?

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday/Remember the Tights!

TGIF everybody!

The last time that I could remember wearing  colored tights is when   I was 10 years old.  My family had gone to the Poconos with members of our church congregation for a weekend getaway.   Dinner that Saturday night was at a fancy restaurant so my mom had to dress us up.   I remember  wearing  a red dress with white tights and shiny patent leather shoes.  My mom had pulled my hair up into a ponytail and topped it off with a red bow.  I remember feeling so pretty and a little grown up because my shoes had a slight wedge  which I thought were high heels!  Dressing up that  night was one of the highlights of that trip which has always stuck with me.

Honestly I can’t point to one reason why I  stopped wearing colored tights.  Maybe I  told myself I could only wear black or brown tights.  Maybe I felt my legs were too big for colored tights.  Either way as you can see, I no longer feel that way!

Would you wear colored tights? If so, what color?

Have a wonderful weekend!

A Second Time Around

Happy Monday all!

On Saturday I started packing up my Spring/Summer clothes (bummer!) and unpacking my Fall clothes.  It was fun taking out my Fall clothes and seeing what I have.  This time last year I was completely at a lost for how to wear my clothes, but now I’m excited about trying new combos.  My outfit today is one of those experimental combos.  While it’s not earth shattering or avant garde, its different for me.   I’ve had this purple Gap v-neck sweater for almost 3 years and would only pair it with  pants.  I decided to wear it over my favorite JCPenney dress that I wore here.  I added my ASOS Curve skinny bow belt to complete the look.  I’m a huge fan of booties, so this was an opportunity for me to break in my new Bandolino suede booties. While the heel isn’t high, its narrow so needless to say I had a few near slips in the hallway at work today!

Have you unpacked your Fall clothes yet?

Have a wonderful evening!
