Cobalt Blue, Leather, and Camo

Hey guys,

I'm back today with another date night look but more like middle of the week daytime date. My Hubby had a Taekwondo belt testing this week so I took the day off work and we made an entire day of it. He got his new belt (pic on my IG), we had a celebratory lunch, and spent the rest of the day enjoying this beautiful sunny Fall day.

I am trying to get back to wearing more color so I decided to wear a monochrome cobalt look for our lunch date. I shopped my closet for this look. The dress I've had over a year and never got a chance to wear...the coat I bought last year on an end of season sale (that's the best time to get coats), the scarf is old and has been featured on the blog before, and the shoes are old.

I'm no stranger to pairing camo with bright colors but I've never tried blue and I'm loving how this look came out. I probably won't be blogging again until after Thanksgiving so if I don't post until the Happy Early Holidays!!! I wish I was more excited about it but when you are responsible for cooking the entire spread the Holidays aren't so much fun anymore. I miss going to someone else's house and eating loll.

The Perfect LBM (Little Black Maxi)

Hey guys!!

If you follow me on Instagram, I'm sure you've seen the selfies of me and my Husband from our latest date night. On Tuesday night, the Queen of Hip Hop soul came to my city and I was so ecstatic that we were not only able to see her but also snagged some super close seats to the Stage. We love making new memories together and neither one of us had seen a Mary J Blige concert before.

I wanted a look that was effortless, minimal, but also comfortable and made a statement. I decided to rock a Chic and Curvy dress to the event. I always  love to wear this brand when I have somewhere super special to attend. Not only are the clothes comfortable but I have never seen a style twin when wearing one of their looks. This dress drapes flawlessly, it has POCKETS, and I love how low cut the front is making a basic black dress a little sexier. I also love that the sleeves are 3/4 length.  While I love the way a long sleeve dress looks I prefer 3/4 sleeve because to me it can be worn in any season. Luckily it's still in the 70s in my city so I didn't have to wear a coat or a jacket to the event.

I decided to pop the dress with a black and white clutch. When I saw it I knew I wouldn't rest until I had it in my possession. It contrasted perfectly against the dress and I popped my makeup look with a pink liquid lipstick. If you are in need of the perfect black dress I highly suggest this one. Every girl needs a LBD but I think every plus size woman needs the perfect LBM (little black maxi) as a wardrobe staple as well.

Fall Pinks

Hi Guys,

This weekend didn't feel like Fall at all in my city. There was a slight chill in the air in the mornings but in the afternoon it felt like Summertime. I'm not complaining tho because I'm not a fan of cold weather. I'm enjoying every sunny moment I can get until the cold is here to stay.

I'm back today with my final pair of jeans that were sent over from Fashion to Figure. Every plus size girl needs a pair of black jeans. I love these because of the small rips. I'm not a fan of ripped jeans with the actual skin showing through so these are perfect. They fit true to size but I feel that I could have gone up one size in these.

Since this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month I decided to rock pink to brighten up the black. I rocked a hot pink Blazer paired with a striped top, and punched it up even more with a pink lippie and colorblock clutch. This is my favorite look from all of my recent jeans look and I love how it turned out. My Husband loved it even more and that's always a plus :)

Fall Nights

This past weekend was so beautiful and the temperature was perfect...there was a chill in the air but it wasn't too cold or hot. I wanted to wear something orange so I paired this super soft knit tee with a kimono in coordinating colors. I tied the tee into a side knot to create a ruching effect because the tee was tunic length on me.  This kimono is so vibrant in person and it flows perfect. I bought it in every color it came in because I'm obsessed with kimonos.

These jeans from Fashion to Figure are my favorite pair out of the pairs they sent over. The fit and length is perfect...they don't create a muffin top and they have enough stretch to accommodate ample thighs and a big butt. THESE jeans are my top pick for Fall seriously. This look is perfect for those cool fall nights when you want to be comfy but cute.

I'll be back soon with one more item to review from Fashion to Figure. Until then see ya!

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.
