#Style Me 3 Ways: Polka Dots Top from NY&CO!

With the pandemic still going on, I’m having all kinds fun styling and re-styling different pieces in my closet. Gives me an idea of how I’m going to wear something when we can be social again. I mean, we can be social now, but of course, lots of restrictions.

We’re going to be styling this top that I love from NY & CO three different ways: very girly, somewhat casual, and a wildcard. Gives me an idea of how many times I can get away with wearing the same things. So let’s see what we have!

Very Girly

Give me an excuse to put on a dress or a skirt and I’m there. You may have see this skirt before, but I love it. It literally goes with anything and I can wear it any kind of way. I kept everything simple with the blush pink, to let the top shine.

Casual|Print Mixing

We mixing prints in 2021! I know I’m late to the party, but I always thought that print mixing didn’t look good on me. So here’s to trying new things! Since it was kinda chilly, chose my trusty cardigan also from NY&CO. Not only is this look is cool, but also, comfortable enough to run after Harper!

WildCard

How cute and simple is this look?? You know I never owned a cool leather jacket until now? A simple black and white look can be elevated with just the boots and jacket. Fun fact: I was not a fan of the combat look until last year. I bought these boots just to test the look out to see if I liked it. I must say, I’m a fan.

Jeans and Jacket: Torrid, Boots: JustFab

Amazon The Drop Review: SignedBlake Collection

I recently learned that Amazon collaborates with bloggers and influencers from around the world to create a clothing collection that represents them and their current trend. Its pretty intense because you have 30 hours to shop the collection and once it sells out, its gone.

Recently I had the pleasure of picking a piece from the @SignedBlake collection that was completely out of my comfort zone and decided to style it out of my normal style. Blake is the first black influencer I noticed to have a collection, and not only do I follow her, she is quite the badass. Most of the collections within The Drop are not plus size friendly, so it is definitely enlightening to see she thought of us.

Wanna know what’s funny? I didn’t originally order this piece. I wanted the floral ruffle maxi dress, so im not sure how my order was mixed up. At the time I couldn’t return it because the piece I wanted sold out in my size. After a couple weeks I decided to take it out for a spin and go grunge chic. Yeah, that’s what I’m calling it. I decided to pair it with some combat boots that’s high on trend this season and I belted the dress to give it more shape. Also rolling up the sleeves helps frame the look as well.

I’m so glad I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something different! Stay tuned for my next Amazon The Drop review!

“Fall In Love” Series: Styling Eloquii Elements Pt. 1

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.

Stay tuned for part 2!

Ruffle Goodness

WhoWhatWear have been showing out for my plus size beauties at Target! Like so many of the items in the collection, this blouse caught my eye. You can never go wrong with a simple blue and white stripe and it’s very versatile. The ruffles add all kinds of flair to this look and I had at least 3 looks in my head when I bought it.

Details

I kept the look simple and chic by wearing some skinnies, with my dope out of season Michael Kors purse and some heels from Zara from a few years ago. I have no shame in mixing old and new pieces together. It bring such great character and style to any look!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESWould you believe these heels were super painful? Lol. I haven’t worn heels higher than 3.75 inches in a few years because of my weight, but now that I’ve been working out lately, it’s not so painful. But pain is beauty and I love these heels.
