Casual Friday/Latest Inspiration

TGIF everybody!

I’m always inspired by the fabulous plus size bloggers I follow.  Their blogs encourage me to pair items I would never thought to wear together.  My outfit today  is   inspired  by Tanesha of  Girl With Curves  post Layer Trick  .  After I saw her post,  I had to try layering a blouse underneath my sleeveless peplum shirt!  To achieve this look, I put  my  faux leather peplum shirt and  my 3/4 sleeve polka dot blouse together.   The blouse was thin enough to fit comfortably underneath the  shirt without adding bulk.  I didn’t want to wear all black so I opted for my fuchsia slim ankle pants for a pop of color (it wasn’t that cold today so my ankles didn’t freeze!).   I really liked how the blouse and peplum shirt looked together.  I will definitely wear this combo again.  Thanks Tanesha for the inspiration!

What clothes have you been inspired to wear?

Have a wonderful evening!

    That looks very cute indeed! I really am enjoying your posts, so keep up the good work! Tell us a little more about yourself in some of them if you like. I’d love to know more! Where do you live (what city), what do you do for work, what do you do for fun (asides from fashion), etc! 🙂

    I think this is a smart way to remix clothes. You look great! Love your leather peplum, always been trying to find one in nearest F21.

      I completely agree that it is a smart way to remix clothes. I got the peplum top in early December. I knew it was gonna sell out so I snatched it up quickly. I had it altered to remove the collar.

    Girl with Curves was the blog that made me decide to start blogging! Love these smart layers.

      Girl with Curves was one of the first blogs I stumbled on to. It was eye opening to see such a beautiful, curvy woman dressing so stylishly. I can see why you were inspired by her!
