Summer is here ladies and gentlemen! The time that we all have been waiting for. Temperatures heated up in the blink of an eye here in Los Angeles, going from mid 70s as the high, to 90 and even 100 degrees! Needless to say my wardrobe is consisting of dresses, skirts, shorts and only fabrics that are light and breathable.

I found this great cobalt blue dress while browsing online. I love the richness of this shade as its the perfect palette for the season. It’s also great for keeping me cool during this heat wave. You all know that I love color blocking even in a subtle way so I decided to sprinkle in some neons to add to the look. Neon colors are always on trend when temperatures start to rise so don’t be a afraid to add a bright pop to your outfits. These colors mesh together beautifully but can also work with many other combinations (i.e. neon and pink, cobalt and orange, etc.). Try different color palettes to come up with your own unique look!

      Thank you! I would say get a good pair of quality shapewear. My favorites are spanx and Maidenform. Hope that helps

    Absolutely Gorgeous!!!! How do you find shapewear that is seamless? I have gained so much weight in this past few years and have finally accepted being a plus sized girl. I would love to wear things like a bodycon dress, but I can’t seem to fine shapewear that will help smooth things out like you do. Could you please, please help me? You can email me if you want to be discreet, but I really need your help. I love your confidence.

    Love the dress! What kind of shape wear are you wearing?

    • Kristine June 27, 2016 at 8:05 pm

      Thank you! It’s from Macys, Maidenform brand

    You look absolutely stunning! I love this outfit and I LOVE bodycon dresses on plus-sized and curvy women (I don’t know whether I’d be brave enough to wear one, though). I think this colour really suits your skin colour, too. Do you usually wear any sort of shapewear under this kind of dresses? If so, what brand do you go for? I have tried several, but all of them seem to accentuate my muffin top instead of making it look flat. If I found some shapewear that didn’t penetrate my skin on the hips and my back – therefore not hiding my flabby parts but simply changing their location – and simply gave it a flat-looking appearance, I might give it a try! One of the problems I usually face while shopping online on international websites is that they don’t ship items to Spain (where I am from) or that the shipping cost is too expensive. Any budget-friendly online shop that any of you know? Thanks a lot and KEEP IT UP, GIRL!

      Thanks so much Francesca! I do wear shapewear. I have a pair from the Maidenform brand. As far as clothing is concerned, I believe ASOS ships to Spain and they have some pretty affordable options but outside of that, I’m not sure. Thanks for your support!

    Those shoes though! Wow! I had never heard of Smash Shoes, as a girl who wears a size 11 I thank you!

    Wow, you look AMAZING in that dress! Love the pops of neon yellow.

    I so enjoy seeing bold contrasts on other people, I’m more of a neutral/black/white gal.

    Stay cool!
