You know that Summer is just on the horizon when you start to see crochet garments and I, for one, do not have one complaint about it. There are so many things about I love about this outfit. The first and probably the most obvious is the color. This luscious green is absolutely stunning in person and is a perfect Spring/Summer color. I also love the fact that this a 2-piece matching set. For one, it takes all of the guessing work out of how to style the pieces and is an outfit in and of itself. The top fits on me like a bit of a crop top however you could easily size up if you would prefer it to cover your midsection completely. The skirt is probably my favorite part of the whole outfit. The design is so chic and eye-catching. Not to mention it is so well made and fits like a glove. I love the beige slip underneath that adds a hint of color to an otherwise monochromatic set. It also helps to make the design pop even more.

If you didn’t think that you needed anything crochet in your wardrobe, now you know that you do! With this set, you can mix and match to create your own looks or simply wear them together as I’ve done. Either way, these are great pieces to have for the warm weather ahead.

It’s maxi dress season and it’s one of my favorite times of the year! Maxi dresses are the ultimate Spring/Summer go to. Not to mention that are super easy and comfortable to wear. Whenever I’m going out of town to somewhere warm, they are the first thing that I think about it to pack. While on vacation, you just want no fuss fashion, am I right? But even if I am home, maxis are perfect for weekend brunch with friends or really any casual weekend activity.

This particular maxi dress was a find that I got from thredUP. If by chance you are not familiar with the company, thredUP is an online consignment and thrift store where you can purchase lightly worn, secondhand clothing at a fraction of the retail price. They have a huge selection of everything from clothing to accessories to shoes so you are sure to find something you love. I have personally loved shopping their site because they have so many great pieces and even better deals. I love a good bargain (you can thank my mother for that)!

In fact, this entire look is from thredUP. The dress, the straw bag AND the sandals I purchased from them. In addition to Summer garments, I have been looking for great accessories as well such as this straw bag which is a season’s must-have! Then I loved these fun, multicolored sandals for vacay style. Here’s the breakdown of what I saved.

Dress:

Retail Price – $48

thredUP Price – $38.99

 

Bag:

Retail Price – $60

thredUP Price – $27.99

 

Sandals:

Retail Price – $39

thredUP Price – $27.99

That means I got everything for under $100! Lastly, I love how versatile these items are. I can wear them with so many different outfits and they will be perfect for my upcoming vacations.

Lilac was named the official color of the season by many notable fashion publications. So of course with my blog having trendy in the name, I had to follow the trend. Lilac and pastel colors are nothing new for Spring but like all trends, they come back around in new and exciting ways. This color has exploded onto the market being offered in jackets, dresses, jumpsuits and more making it the “it” hue of the moment. We know as plus size women that it’s not always easy to follow what’s popular simply because it’s not readily available in our sizes. So when I saw this skirt from Eva Mendes’ line at New York & Company, needless to say I jumped on it.

This skirt is not plus size but because it is a sweater like material, it is very plus size friendly. Plus they go up to an XXL which is the equivalent to about a size 20. While subtle, it is such a feminine and pretty color that is perfect for the season. I wanted to keep the palette light and bright so I paired it with a white off the shoulder top and taupe heels. It’s minimalist and simple yet chic. You can also do a monochromatic look with this matching top also from the line. Whatever way you decide to style it, the important thing to note is that we don’t have to be excluded from trends. We can make styles work for us and this is a perfect example of that.

Since Summer is just on the horizon, I’m dabbling in bold and bright prints in preparation for the upcoming season. The Summertime is prime for wearing tropical inspired fashion, colorful styles and more. This top from Tommy Hilfiger’s plus line available at Macy’s embodies just that. It is made for someone that is not afraid to stand out and have a little fun with their wardrobe. Comprised of neon-like colors from the highlighter yellow to the deep coral, this top is sure to be noticed. To further fit within the Summer vibe, I decided to tie this button up blouse rather than tucking it in. I feel like that gave it a very laid-back feel that was necessary for the look.

Pairing it with white denim served to be a stark contrast to the top. Because the print is so vibrant, it needed something to mellow it out so that it could be balanced. These white jeans, also from Tommy Hilfiger’s plus size line, was the clean slate that this outfit needed. Finally, I just finished it off with simple nude sandals and gold accessories.
