How many of you are still on track with those resolutions? We are going into a new month soon so stay strong ladies and remember take it one day at a time.
I know Valentine's Day is coming up and some of you may be scrambling for looks to wear out with someone special or a girls night out. Whatever the occasion is, I wanted to come to you with some outfit ideas in the coming weeks.
This look is for the woman who wants a casual look but still wants a pop of pink or red to celebrate the festivities. I shopped my closet for this look with all old pieces so I'm positive most of you can go to your closet and find something similar using this look as inspiration. As you know my favorite color is pink so I decided to incorporate it into this look. I just paired a black cami, a black blazer, some boyfriend jeans, basic pumps, and a pink leopard infinity scarf with a clutch that happened to match perfectly.
I finished this look off with my new favorite pink lipstick Viva Glam Miley Cyrus. I wasn't sure if it would be brown girl friendly but I love it....pair it with Mac Chestnut liner to make it more wearable.
The weather here is so crazy one day it's cold enough for trench coats..the next day it's only cold enough for a light cardigan but I'm not complaining at all. Yesterday the weather was so beautiful I just had to take advantage of the pretty day and get out and about. This year I'm staying true to my personal style and lately I'm leaning towards cute but comfy looks.
Pencil skirts are my favorite so it should be no surprise that this looks includes one. I paired it with a basic black cami top, a cream long-line cardigan and my favorite print infinity scarf...leopard of course. This look is everything I want my 30s style to keep encompassing...effortlessly chic. To finish the look off I wore my structured black bag. This look is simple but hopefully you find it "blog-worthy". Oh and did I mention I shopped my closet for this look? #winning

Until Next Time,
It's been awhile since I've posted. I took a mental break from blogging for awhile and I must admit it felt great and I plan to unplug more often in 2015 from social media overall and also blog on my own terms. Since I started blogging I have been way more hard on myself as far as setting a schedule for posts than I should have been.....it's just a hobby/outlet for me and I've been treating it like a second job literally. I don't plan on abandoning the blog by any means but I definitely won't lose a wink of sleep if I don't post a look a week like I had been.
On to my look ....you guys know I LOVEEEEEEE me some leopard....so when I first saw this coat (and it's not for the faint of heart) I knew I had to have it. Initially it was $160 (way too much for me to pay for a coat I knew I wouldn't be wearing every week and I wanted it more for cuteness than warmth)....so I waited and when it went on sale for 39.99 about three weeks ago I hurriedly snatched it up. Waiting on items you truly love doesn't always work out that way if you are plus size but I took the risk and I'm so glad I didn't pay retail price for this coat. Now that I have it tho it actually is VERY warm so it worked out better than I thought for a Winter coat. I paired it with a simple black cami, my new favorite jeans, and some nude pumps. I finished my look off with my everyday black bag and a bold purple lip. You will see SO much more of this coat...so I'm warning you now loll.
I have seen a lot of plus size women stating that a lot of the companies are making statement clothing for parties/clubbing/special events and a lot of women are just everyday women looking for things they can wear on a daily basis. That is one of the reasons I plan to blog way more casual looks in 2015 and I think this look is definitely an everyday look with a side of glam. You can also wear nude flats if you aren't a heels girl.
If you have been inspired by any of my looks from the blog enough to recreate them or create inspired looks.. hashtag those looks on Instagram at #style4curvesinspired so I can repost them.
If you haven't already gotten your Valentine's Day outfit or at least started looking for one now is the time. I wanted to share a gorgeous option for you ladies still on the lookout. A sexy red mermaid dress.....the 3/4 sleeve is perfect for you ladies that aren't comfortable showing your arms. This dress is a statement all on it's own but you can add a gorgeous statement necklace and a cute clutch to bring the look together.
I found this dress on Ashley Stewart and you can get it here.
Until Next Time,
I hope that this year is filled with prosperity, peace, and progress for all of my readers. I don't do New Year's resolutions anymore because I try to make goals daily and work toward those goals everyday so majority of the time by the time the next year arrives.....I have already implemented my plans and already working towards them.
I just want to continue being a better wife to my Husband, continue to excel in my career, and read more books (for those of you who don't know I am an avid reader). The rest of my goals I will share once they come to fruition. I love putting things out into the Universe but I've learned that sometimes it's best not to share every single thing you are trying/planning to do because not everyone will support or be happy for you...dream killers are real. As far as what I plan to wear in 2015..I will dress casual more often, try to wear more color, and continue to let my 30's style evolve.
On to my outfit, last night we celebrated NYE with dinner and a small intimate house party.....I could have dressed a little more casual for the House Party but I decided to get super festive and bring in the New Year super glam to set the tone for the rest of this year. I wore a chick black wrap top peplum top, with my sequin skirt that I got from Asos last year, and some simple black pumps. I wore a pink lippie to bring out the pink in my skirt and I also changed back to straighter hair.
I just wanted to drop in and wish you guys a very Merry Christmas. Today is special for us because it's the first Christmas we are spending in our new Home. I cooked a huge spread today and we've been shooting fireworks all day. It's been a very low key Christmas with only our small little family. We wanted it to be just us this year.
I chose a casual but chic look...something easy to throw on that still made a statement. I paired a basic 3/4 sleeve top with my fur vest and some boyfriend jeans. For drama I added leopard pumps and my favorite Holiday sequin handbag.
