In The Trenches

Happy Monday all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend!

As you know, Spring weather can be so finicky! One day it’s 70+ degrees and the next temps are below average.   When the weather is that unpredictable (especially early Spring),  a trench coat becomes my go to for when I head out.  It’s  perfect for mild/chilly weather that isnt too warm or light for the elements. I dont have to tell you that a trench coat is timeless.  It goes with nearly everything in your closet. It can be dressed up or down depending where youre going.  For me a trench coat is a must have in every woman’s wardrobe.

Stylish Layers

Happy Hump Day all!

As Old Man Winter continues his strangle hold on the majority of the US (we’re getting hit with our NINTH snowstorm tonight!), keeping warm is my top priority. While it’s important to me, I can’t abandon being stylish!  I think the key to staying warm but stylish is finding coordinating layers to wear.  Try wearing a  turtleneck under your favorite sleeveless or 3/4 length sleeve dress and top it off with a leather jacket.  Take a  full skirt and wear it over one of your dresses (I did that here) .  One of my favorite things to wear is a button up cardigan under a blazer with a statement necklace. Not only am I super warm (got tow layers on!), I’m still stylish!

To my East Coast people, stay warm and be careful out there!

Have a wonderful day!

Style Inspiration: The Werk Place

Happy Hump Day all!

Since I’m home due to yet another snow day (grrrr!), I decided to do another Style Inspiration post to stop me from binging on the Investigation Discovery channel (there’s only so many disappearances, murders and deceit one can watch!).

My look today is inspired by the uber chic Tiffany from The Werk Place.  I’ve been admiring Tiffany’s unique style ever since I saw her outfit posts on Pose.   When it comes to fashion, some people just have “it” and Tiffany is definitely one of those people.  So when I saw her gorgeous print on print outfit, I knew I had to put my spin on it.

I  haven’t mastered the art of print mixing like Tiffany but the mix of  polka dots and stripes were right up my alley.

Have a great day!

Casual Friday: Style Inspiration

TGIF everybody!

My outfit inspiration today comes from the lovely Shea of Curves and Confidence.  I’ve been a fan of her sleek, polished style for a while now, so when I saw her outfit on Pinterest, I knew I had to put my spin on it.  Shea’s ensemble was right up my alley because it combined two of my favorite things, hot pink and leopard print.  The pop of  bright color compliments her outfit and makes it stand out.  I also liked that she wasnt afraid to wear a strong color to work. Often people shy away from wearing bright colors in the workplace but Shea shows if you wear it properly, you can definitely pull it off!

Check out Shea’s blog to see more of her fabulous looks!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Weekend Edition: My Life on Instagram

Happy Monday all!

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!
