Safari Prints

Hi guys,

It's Fall for sure but the brief cool spell we had a few weeks ago is gone and it's back in the 80's in my city. Hopefully we get some real Fall weather soon but until then I'll be wearing items that incorporate a little bit of both seasons since it still feels like Summer here.

I love this safari printed pencil skirt from Fashion to Figure. The colors are vibrant but are more Fall appropriate. It fits true to size and is the perfect length for me. I kept the styling simple pairing it with a black 3/4 sleeve peplum jacket and I decided to bring out the colors in the skirt by rocking a bold dark purple lip and some blue pumps. This look is super simple but as comfortable as rocking jeans. If you are looking for cute Fall skirt look no further.

Plaid and Fringe: First Day of Fall

It's the first day of Fall and I'm looking forward to the cooler temps. Blazers are a huge Fall staple to me so for this look I paired a little of everything that I love about Fall.....Blazers, flowy tops, plaid, jeans, and fringe. I am loving super laid back comfortable looks that don't require much effort so this look is a win for me.

The jeans from Fashion to Figure are the highlight of this look. They have come a long way with their sizing. Once upon a time Fashion to Figure was hit or miss for me in terms of pants. In the past, I wouldn't have dared to try jeans from them based on past experiences but I have a few pair that I will be showcasing on the blog. These jeans run true to size but for me, the sizing is spot on and they fit over my butt and thighs, however the crotch is a lot lower on these jeans than I would like for it to be. Maybe on someone taller that would be amazing but I'm 5'2 for reference. If you are short and fuller figured like me these jeans probably won't be your favorite.

I will be back soon with more Fashion to Figure items to review for you guys!

Leopard Blazer and A Chiffon Maxi Skirt

Hey guys,

The temps in my city are FINALLY cooling off in my city thank goodness!! To me, this is the temperature I would love for it to be year round. Not too hot and not cold....I hate cold weather with a passion but I am looking forward to the Fall Festivities, caramel apples, hot chocolate, kids dressed cute for Halloween and the whole nine.

I fade back to black during the Fall and Winter if you've noticed I've been wearing black a lot lately. I love all black clothing and a bold lip in the Winter but I'm going to inject color whenever I can to keep from boring you guys to death. As I stated in an earlier post, this Fall and Winter I am shopping my closet heavy and trying to keep from spending too much money on clothing. When I was looking through my closet I came back across this leopard blazer that I don't wear nearly enough and decided to pair it with this chiffon  maxi skirt from Chic and Curvy.

This skirt is perfect because it makes us short girls look taller and for the tall women it will be just the perfect length for you. It comes in blue, red, purple, and white as well for those of you looking for specific colors. It runs true to size and it is very figure flattering for those of us who care about that. This skirt will be heavy in rotation when I want to rock something easy but cute and I think it's perfect for vacations, cruises, etc.

Caped Leopard

This Fall my style is going to be super simple. I don't plan on buying very many new things and the things I purchase will mostly be basics and work-wear. My style these days is super relaxed, casual, and comfy and I want my Fall style to consist mostly of recycled pieces from the wardrobe I have already.

I am really really loving anything caped this Fall...from blazers to oversized cape tops, the flowy silhouettes really work with my figure and they are not only flattering but super comfy and chic. I am not embarrassed to say I will probably end up with tops on this style in 4 or 5 different colors before this season is over so I'm warning you in advance loll.

For this look I decided to wear leopard pumps, a tan tote, and leopard printed shades. Some people may think it's leopard overload but for me there is never too much leopard. This look was perfect for date night with my Hubby.

The Tulle Skirt

I have always liked the look of tutus but some of them just had a tad too much fabric for me, so when I saw this version with only one layer of tulle I knew I just had to try it out and I ended up loving it! I kept this look very basic with all black and a pop of color with my clutch but I will definitely be playing around more with it in the future pairing the skirt with denim tops, white tops, printed tops, etc. I love this clutch because my wedding colors were fuschia and orange and I knew I had to have it as well. I wore a similar one earlier this Summer that was blue and yellow(see how I styled the blue and yellow clutch here) and I'm notorious for buying things I love in more than one color.

This Fall I will be doing a lot of shopping my closet and buying only basics and revamping my work wardrobe. I'm thinking of bringing back more workwear looks to the blog as it gets cooler.  I've also been getting rid of things that I don't get a lot of wear out of to make room for me to force myself to wear the things I love more often. A lot of times we find things we love and end up picking them up time and time again.

When was the last time you tried something new? Have you worn a tutu before? Hashtag some of your tutu looks or any of your cute looks #style4curvesinspired so I can share them on IG and my fanpage.

Square-Printed In Color

Birthdays seem to come faster the older you get or maybe you're too busy living to count-down like we did when we were kids. Today I turn 32...and a lot of women are afraid to tell their age like it's a huge secret but for me I'm proud of it. Every year I've survived made me the woman I am today.

I've seen many friends and family leave this Earth long before me and everyday I wake to see another day I consider it a blessing. I have had triumphs and I've had my share of tragedy but in spite of it all I made it through. I love that saying broken crayons still color. I've found that you will never know where life will take you or what to expect, but I will face everything that comes my way with a smile and a burst of color because color makes me happy.  All I want to do on this day is enjoy my Husband and my family, eat something delicious, and just have an intimate dinner with the ones I love the most.

Happy Birthday to Me!!!!!

Style-Note and Review: This dress was gifted c/o Chic and Curvy boutique. It is every bit as vibrant in person and the material is made a slinky, soft fabric that doesn't wrinkle nor does it cling to your problem areas. I love how it skim my tummy area and slims my curves. I also love the length of the sleeves for women who are not confident in baring their arms.The dress also features a split for the more daring divas that want to show some leg and for women like me that don't care to expose the leg you can adjust it so that the split is not visible. If you are short you may want to get it hemmed. I like how it falls tho. If you are tall and tired of too short maxis this would be perfect for you. I am 5'2 for reference.

The Look For Less: The Black and White Pussy-bow Blouse

I know it's still hot but Fall will be fast approaching and I'm already looking at Fall Styles. I saw this amazing pussy-bow blouse on Asos but I know some of you wouldn't be feeling 54.00 price tag.

So I decided to give you guys a more budget friendly option. 

The second option is SO similar and only a fraction of the cost at 24.90 Click Here To Purchase.

I hope you guys find this helpful. I think this top would look great with black dress pants, tucked into a pencil skirt or tucked into a skater skirt.

Until Next Time,
