The Asymmetrical Peplum

One of this Summer's hottest trends is the asymmetrical peplum top. I love it because in my wardrobe the peplum is fast becoming  a work wardrobe staple for me so the cut of this peplum is more dressy for a night on the town or date-night.

This peplum top that I'm wearing c/o Chic and Curvy is now my favorite. I love the super thick scuba material it's made of. It's thick and stretchy and has a slight sheen to it. It comes in several colors but to keep from going on pink overload I decided to go with the black. I felt like I can pair with more things in the black and you guys know I am all about remixing my items to get the most wear out of them in my wardrobe.

Speaking of remixing, I decided to pull back out my leopard skirt I last wore on the blog with a pink blazer. This is my favorite leopard skirt and when I want to make a statement it's one of first things I always consider. To me, you can never go wrong with leopard print. I kept everything simple and decided to add a thin metal belt for that little something extra.

Make sure you check out Chic and Curvy if you want some head turning night on the town looks. They have a sale going on right now for 15 percent off with the code July0415. You could get this in Blue for your patriotic 4th of July looks!

One Shoulder Glam

The heat is continuing to rise and the more the temps rise, the more ways I will find to dress cool and still stay classy and stylish. At the start of Summer, I was a little hesitant to show my arms off but now it's so hot I honestly am completely over it.

I love a one shoulder top or dress so when I saw this top I knew it was perfect for me. It's made from a light material that keeps you cool, but it covers enough that you can wear it to just about any function outside of work (if you work in a strict corporate environment). The top flows so that it is forgiving to a not so flat midsection and the tie on it really defines your waist. And did I mention that my wedding colors were fuchsia and orange so the fact that these colors were in the top solidified my decision to add to cart lol.

I decided to pair it with a fitted pencil skirt so my curves didn't get lost and I kept the rest simple with some black pumps and a black clutch.  I love this top so much I have an event to attend this weekend and I will wear it again to that more than likely with a different bottom. What have you been rocking to stay cool?

Hey guys,

How are you? As you know before and awhile after Mother's Day I had been in an emotional rut. I felt like I was going through the motions with everything from work to blogging but now I am getting back to feeling like myself again. When I feel my best I tend to gravitate towards brighter colors....I guess because I'm a Summer baby the sun just makes me happy.

My Husband knew I had been feeling this way so he took a surprise day off work on this day and we both got all dressed up and painted the town. I was feeling so good when we were passing by this location, we decided to stop and shoot en route to our destination and the pictures really captured how happy I felt this day.

I shopped my closet for this look and pulled this colorblock peplum top I've had at least 4 or 5 years out and wore it tucked into this gorgeous maxi skirt. I love this skirt so much I have it in two colors and want it in one more but I think I'm just being excessive. To keep the brights theme going I wore an orange lipstick with my makeup look.

This skirt is 40 percent off today on the site so hit that link and grab you one!

Tea Party

My sister's Birthday is coming up and one of the parties she planned was a tea party. I was super excited about it and decided to dress the Southern Belle part for it. I chose this super old fit and flare dress...paired it with a kimono.......and wore coordinating pink flats.

I was running almost late and had no time to take pics with the good camera so I had my Husband to snap these quick Iphone shots for IG. If you follow any of my other social media pages you've already seen this look but for those who don't I didn't want to leave you out.

Canadian Tuxedos (Plus Size)

Hi guys,

I hope you are having a great Memorial Day.The forecast had the chance of rain here set at 90 percent so we did our festivities this weekend and I took the opportunity to get a quick blog post in.

I told you guys I have been feeling like wearing nothing but comfortable stuff and this day was no exception. I decided to try my hand at the summer version of the Canadian tuxedo(denim on denim). I paired some jeans with a sleeveless denim tunic top and added pink shoes, a colorful cluth, and a pink inspired makeup look to bring the look together. Nothing fancy just a simple weekend look.

I wore this shirt AGAIN the next day (don't act like you haven't done it) with some black leggings, black flats, and a black embellished belt to cinch my waist and it was just as cute. It'd be safe to day this top will be HEAVY in my Summer throw on and go wardrobe.

I hope you guys like this look.

Stylenote: This top fits true to size no need to size up, but it wrinkles VERY easily.

Tribal Maxis and Kimonos

Hey guys,

How have you been doing? I've literally been in a funk lately. I really haven't felt like doing much of anything besides reading and being a recluse. If it wasn't for my Husband, I literally would go nowhere I just haven't felt like doing much of anything. Everything just seems like a hassle.

As far as clothing choices, they have been reflecting my mood and I have just been picking up no hassle, easy to wear, comfortable items. You guys know I love a good maxi dress and anything I love I buy in complete excess so I am wearing yet another maxi dress (that I don't need) . I had to buy this dress when it came back on the site because last year it sold out and like they say nothing haunts you like the things you didn't buy. I decided to pair it with this chiffon black Kimono that I've had since last Summer but actually forgot about until I moved and found a lot of old items.

I love this maxi dress mostly for the print I am tribal print crazy...but I also love the faux wrap front and the belt that cinches in the waist. It definitely in my opinion slims a curvy frame.

I know that my style isn't the most trendsetting nowadays but I hope that for those of you that are looking for everyday wear or "real life" looks that my blog can continue to inspire you.

Yellow, Fringe, and Stripes

The temps in my city feel more like Summer than Spring but in the office I work in it's always cool or cold so I can still wear Spring inspired looks without burning up.

I love yellow and oftentimes it's hard to find pieces I love in my size so when I see it I snap it up super quick. This time around I spotted this yellow blazer...I had no idea how I wanted to style it I just knew I wanted it. When I finally got around to wearing it I decided to do a simple look and style it with a striped skirt, and a black fringe bag. I almost added a touch of leopard but chickened out....mixing prints is not one of the things I'm good at. \

 I love the color of the blazer, but the fabric leaves much to be desired. If I had to purchase it all over again I probably would but only because I didn't have a yellow blazer at all but I really wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a quality yellow blazer that is more structured.
