Cold Shoulder

You’ll probably see a trend on my blog right now: Blue and white stripes. What is that about? I keep seeing this pattern everywhere and I just want everything in this pattern! This color looks great on anyone and its so simple. The thing about this particular top is simplicity meets FAB. Do you see the detail on this shirt? Let me be honest with you, I have not been able to find a top like this for  plus size girl. Maybe I haven’t been looking hard enough. When I though I wasn’t going to find it, I gave up. Then, stalking Forever 21’s website like I normally do, I saw this shirt in all its $25 glory.

How neat is this top? I’m a short kid so the sleeves are a little long, but the great thing about it, is either you can hem it or just roll them up. It has a tiny stretch to it and is very comfortable. Surprisingly, I was able to put it on without any issues. Make sure you have the right sleeve open so you can find it to place your arm in. Although it bares one shoulder, I think it is a modest piece. Who doesn’t love to show off a good shoulder?

I wanted to keep it simple by wearing my white subtle ripped jeans that you’ve seen on her several times. These pants are from Cato’s Fashions and they are dope. They’re boyfriend, has some stretch and is very comfortable. My Steve Madden heels went great with them (wore them for my engagement photoshoot here) and added a pop of color with this Michael Kors purse. I bought it from the Michael Kors outlet and they said this bag is discontinued. 😦

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.
