Stripes and Yellow

I told you guys this Summer Maxis would be HEAVY in rotation so I'm back today with yet another maxi. I loved this one because it's black and white striped. I wear both horizontal and vertical stripes but I love the vertical stripes on this dress because they have a slimming effect on my plus sized frame. I know some people are down with the f**k flattering movement but I'm always looking for things that flatter my figure. As with any other black and white ensemble all you need is a pop of color to make a statement so I opted to pop it with a yellow clutch and I threw on my favorite Summer Statement sunnies.

This was the perfect no fuss look for a spontaneous date night with the Hubby. If you follow my IG u saw the food I posted from our date at Ruth's Chris. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was divine!!!! My Birthday isn't until the end of this Month but he and I have been celebrating it all Month long.

Concert Colors

As you guys know this is my Birthday Month and during the 4th of July Weekend my Husband and I went to a Boosie concert. I am a HUGE Boosie fan so it was the perfect kickoff to my Birthday celebrations. I wore a pair of old leggings with a vibrant top that has a shark-bite hem. I'm typically not a fan of shark-bite but it's great to me for leggings because it covers my bum and allows me to wear leggings as pants.

The top has SO much going on I decided to break up the color with a thin gold plated belt. I kept the colors going with my favorite blue pumps. This look was a hit at the concert but I kept a pair of blue suede flats in my purse just in case. NEVER go to a concert without a pair of backup shoes and always try to make sure that the backup shoe is the same color as your go to pump so if you have to change shoes you will still look stylish.

Fab Find of The Week

As the Summer temps rise so have the hemlines. For those of you looking for a cute and sexy bodycon dress for that hot Summer party I got you covered.

I saw this cute dress on Forever 21. I think would look hot with strappy black sandals for a night on the town. 

Would you rock this dress?

Boho Chic

As the temps continue to rise my biggest objectives this Summer are to stay comfy and cool. One of the easiest combos I've been putting together is Kimonos and Bermuda shorts. I love the look of short shorts but I feel most comfortable in Bermuda length shorts. It's great to take risks but I prefer to take my risks with prints and color combos vs wearing things that are inappropriate for my body type. I prefer to stay classy and modest and leave some things to the imagination.

I love the dainty pink flowers on this Kimono because that is my favorite color so I decided to highlight that by wearing a Fuchsia clutch. Accessories make all the difference in bringing a simple look to life. Even tho I love my beloved platforms I decided this day to wear my single sole pointy toe heel. Remember back in '08 when they were "out of style"? It's amazing how everything in fashion always comes back in style again. This is one of my favorite looks to date and I felt so boho chic.

Taste The Rainbow

The first day of Summer for me was amazing. I paid tribute to the first day of my favorite season by wearing all the colors of the rainbow. I purchased this skirt last year on sale just as Summer ended and never got to wear it.....and I also shopped for my closet for this peplum top I wore last year for my Birthday. Nothing like finding new "old" things in your closet.

The Look For Less: Kate Spade New York Via Limoni Lina

Hi Fashion Lovers,

I noticed that this Summer a lot of people are really into the fruit shaped clutches. I've seen the Kate Spade clutch on several blogs and couldn't believe that people were actually paying like 200 bucks for it!!! I mean it's so tiny! But nevertheless I found another option in case some of you are wanting the look for a more affordable price.

The New Look clutch that I found isn't an exact dupe but it's the same size and is also a lemon. 200 vs 20 I'll let you be the judge.

It also comes in watermelon and  orange:

Orange & Chevron

Ever have a color combo you just can't get away from? For me it's black and white....seriously as much as I try to get away from it I just keep coming back to it. This time around I decided to pair it with pops of orange.

For Father's Day the Hubby and I tried out a new restaurant that has more of a bar feel so I wanted to be cute but casual....nothing too over the top. I went for my usual maxi and a blazer uniform that I reach for when I want a quick no fuss look. but the icing on the cake was the chevron stripes on this maxi that made it stand out. The look was cute but a bit boring to me so I spiced it up with my gaudy orange statement necklace and my orange handbag that happened to match perfectly. Don't you love when things like that happen?
