When I discovered Eloquii years ago, I was bittersweet. I was so excited to find a plus size brand that sold trendy, chic items but bitter because I could not afford it at the time. Now that I am blessed to be able to, about 85% of my wardrobe is of this brand. They also have the best sales! Not too long ago, Eloquii partnered with Walmart on an Elements collection focusing on everyday fashion at modest prices. What I love about this line is even though the prices are significantly lower than other pieces on the site, the quality is still there. When I saw the release, I rushed to Walmart.com, where I saw it first and picked up a few things.
This peplum jacket can be worn many ways, but I opted to wear it as a jacket in a casual manner! I went a size up in case I decide to wear it as a shirt and what I love about this outfit is that no only is it comfortable and warm, it is easy to chase my one year old!
Even though the next two tops are long sleeved, they are so comfy. Florals have always been my thing since I was a young teenager. You can get the floral top here.
Who doesn’t love animal print? Even though I’m wearing this leopard top in a casual manner, it is still versatile and can be worn dressy, not to mention animal prints are neutral
Check out their entire collection at Eloquii.com or you can even visit Walmart’s site here.
Although there are a few more warmer days before there are cooler days, I definitely wanted to share my favorite spring/summer dresses I wore this season. Between the florals and fun summer colors to a princess gown for a day, I thoroughly enjoyed my wardrobe! Let’s see who made the cut.
So I wanted to start with my FAVORITE dress of this season, ok? I was talking to my husband, and I told him that it really bothered me that I couldn’t find a real maxi dress that complimented my body. I wanted something flattering and super long that covers my feet even when I’m wearing heels. Guys, I found this dress on Amazon when I tested out their Prime Wardrobe. I never have much success when it comes to plus size clothing, so I tried this service. I love the tiered style with the little pom poms on it and I received so many compliments on this dress. Although I did return it, I will be purchasing it for next year. Yes this dress is quite pricey, but the dress is great quality. Its 100% cotton, beautifully lined so it won’t show all your goodies, and very comfortable. I did manage to find an affordable one on Shein for a fraction of the price here. It is very similar to the Eliza J brand I wore, but you will probably get one season out of this.
You guys have seen this dress on the blog, but I’m bringing it back! I loved this dress so much I paid full price for it. I’m starting to notice a tiered silhouette going on like the last dress, but this is the girliest dress I’ve ever seen. My husband was like, yeah that dress is you. And let me tell you, this dress is on sale here. I see myself wearing this dress for the next few seasons, and a little secret guys…I’ve purchased plenty items from Torrid and they last for a good while. I’ve worn this dress to church with a cardigan, but you can wear this dress anywhere.
Blue is my favorite color so this dress was already a fav. I was looking for ways to improve my church wardrobe and this was another dress I tried in the Amazon wardrobe trial. Now I have to purchase it because it is lovely. This is such a chic and modest dress and I love how ladylike it is. Church is not the only place you can wear this dress, but anywhere. This dress is also true to size. Get yours here.
I know I’m super late to the game, but I never fully grasped the fact that Calvin Klein makes plus size clothing. I would see them, but I didn’t pay too much attention to it because some brands sizes are not a true to size. Again, another Amazon Wardrobe try-on success, this maxi dress is awesome. I was afraid that the top would be too thin and revealing, but you couldn’t see a thing. It’s a light, flowy dress that doesn’t stick to you. I wore this to a baby shower with a bold red lip.
As you know, I can always count on Old Navy to supply me with dresses that are casual and great for traveling. I wore this dress constantly and I love how this color complimented my skin. I love how the straps were adjustable but, in order for me to be comfortable, I crossed my straps to prevent them from falling.
Dresses are my favorite thing to wear aside from rompers and jumpsuits because it is a complete look in itself. Just find the right accessories and you’re good!
But the best dress…
You already know. You already know! My wedding gown! The best spring dress for 2018! If you want to see a dedicated post about my wedding attire, read about it here. I talk , about the brand and the amazing level of comfort, but let’s take another look and appreciate the beauty.
What are your favorite dresses that your wore for spring/summer?
Hello! I hope this blog post finds you well today. I thank God for beautiful weather today. What are you thankful for today?
Lately, I’ve been hopping into Burlington more times than usual and this store impresses more than when it used to be Burlington Coat Factory. I was never a fan of the store back then and I felt like there wasn’t anything for me. Today, I have this store placed with the likes of Ross, Marshall’s and TJ Maxx. My husband seems to like it as well, so that’s a plus.
This season, I’m all about comfort and trying to stay cool because the sun just makes you not want to put on too many clothes and then you don’t want the clothes to stick to your body. I was supposed to be looking for bathroom decor items and baby stuff (I’m gonna be an auntie, to a niece), when i found myself in the plus section and y’all….I found this really cool off the shoulder nautical dress.
How cute and comfy this dress is? I love the embroidery detail on the sleeve that compliments my tassel hoop earrings that I also found from Burlington for only $2.99. The only drawback about these earrings is the tassels couldn’t stay straight, but I enjoyed my husband correcting them.
There’s no wrong way to wear this dress, ok? You can pair sandals, white sneakers, and for me, you know I trust my Tory Burch sandals to go with anything. They also add a sense of elevation to the outfit as well.
I forgot to mention, this dress was only $14.99. Although the chambray with the nautical blue and white stripes are not going out of style any time soon, I can rest easy knowing that I didn’t have to break the bank to look fashionable. Check out your local Burlington and see if you find any gems.
This year, I’ve been feeling the pretty pastels and soft florals. I love how feminine and girly they are and I notice that I’ve been filling my closet with such. In my humble opinion, florals and pastels are a good way to get in touch with your girly side! I remember growing up, florals were my favorite pattern, (the tasteful patterns I might add) and I would be teased about it. But that didn’t stop me not one bit! My blankets, dresses, sweaters were floral.
So when I saw this dress from Torrid a couple months ago, I fell in love with it. But I wasn’t interested in paying full price for it. Let’s face it, Torrid is a little overpriced especially when I would find loose threads from brand new pieces. I walked away because $90 for a dress was too much for me. So, I went back a month or so later and still saw it there. Still full price. Still pretty. I decided to grab it. Yup. Full price and no coupon. But let me tell you, it was one of the best full price purchases I made.
I absolutely love this dress! I purchased this in a 3x (my Torrid size) and it fits perfectly! Can we talk about this? I’ve never been one to wear halter style dresses but the fit on this dress is superb. This dress is darling, and not a thread out of place. It is very lightweight with the tiered ruffles going on. This dress has the high-low effect but its too exaggerating. With a white cardigan or light pink one, I can wear this to church with a nude pair or heels, or date night with some comfy sandals.
I love how it cinches above the waist and it camouflages everything giving a very feminine silhouette.
The best thing about this dress, is that it will last for several spring/summer seasons to come. The print, the style and colors, are here to stay, so I will definitely get my price per wear out of this. I wore this dress this past Sunday with my bright pink block heels from Forever 21 that you’ve seen several times and my matching Kate Spade purse. If you want a more romantic, subtle look, a pair of nude heels and a rose colored crossbody/clutch does the trick as well.
If you’re looking to spend more money than you would on a piece of clothing, make sure you can wear it next year and not stuffed in the back of your closet.
