Brighter Side

It’s officially June (my birthday month), so I’m just letting you know in advance that I’m about to act up. Just kidding! (…but am I?). But in all seriousness, one thing that I love about June and the start of Summer is the influx of vibrant colors. The brighter, the better and the more color that you can fit into one look, the better. The weather is just so warm and lovely so it’s only right that you reflect the spirit of the season. So, this dress is the perfect start to one of the best months of the year.

As you will see from the outfit details below, this dress is from Pretty Little Thing. I don’t often shop there because honestly, I did not have a good experience from the first time I placed an order. However, I saw this dress and decided to give it a shot. I absolutely love the color and was pleasantly surprised by the fit. The sleeves are definitely too big but something that I can live with. I can’t say that I will be a consistent customer from here on out, but this was indeed a much better experience than I had before.I thought that the dress was going to be closer to a lime green but it is a true chartreuse color. I immediately knew that I was going to pair it with magenta pink accents because it just pairs so seamlessly with this shade. The dress has quite a bit going on so minimal was the way to go. Simple high heel sandals, a box clutch, and matching lipstick was all this outfit needed to make it a complete look!

P.S. – If you need recommendations on shapewear, refer to this post for some of my favorite brands.

This is one of those outfits where you realize the power of accessories. Here’s how this look all came together. Recently, I went to my local Nordstrom and decided to check out the clothing section. I really haven’t shopped in store at Nordstrom in a very long time. I felt that their plus size section was seriously lacking in style so it just hadn’t become one of my go-to places. However, I was pleasantly surprised by increase in brands that were carrying plus size, some with a full range from XS, all the way up to a 4x!

The Top

I bought three things that day, this top being one of them. I absolutely loved the color and the material is not your typical tank. It’s made of a very soft and stretchy material that at the same time really feels supportive on the body. It is also double layered, which I’m sure adds to the feeling of being held in nicely.

The Bag

So then, I was at Target picking up things that I didn’t need, and I came across the accessories. I eyed this circle tote bag that seemed to match the top that I had just purchased perfectly! It was the last one so I felt like it was fate. I bought it, along with the shoes that I’m wearing (see outfit details for how these are a must!).

The Final Touches

I went home, tried it all on with a pair of NYDJ jeans that I owned and loved it! The seafoam green went together so well with the beige shoe and the tote just set it off. I thought to myself though, “It needs one more thing to really set it off”. That thing was a hat! I had just gotten in a delivery from Amazon of a hat that I ordered. It was only $16 and exactly what I was looking for. I was hoping that it would look right on me and it did. Everything just came together so seamlessly (don’t you just love when that happens?!).

All of the outfit details are below so be sure to check it out there. Happy shopping!

Top: Nordstrom | Jeans: NYDJ (see below) | Shoes: Target (see below) | Bag: Target | Hat: Amazon

  • Jeans – Slight lighter wash, however same jeans. These have great tummy control. Highly recommend
  • Shoes – These are a must-have shoe staple! These types of heels go with literally everything. I may or may not have worn them three times already since purchasing. They are chunky heel, so very comfortable to wear and just the right height.

Summer Trends w/ Walmart

The weather here in Los Angeles has been all over the place. In true Spring fashion, it can be a beautiful, sunny day one minute, and then cloudy and rainy the next (which is so unusual for LA). However, the sun will come out tomorrow and I’m not letting this fickle weather keep me from wearing fun Spring/Summer styles. A perfect example of that is this bold, striped look that I’m wearing. This entire head-to-toe outfit is courtesy of Walmart. Yes, you read that correctly. The top, skirt, purse and shoes are all from Walmart.

We Dress America

Now, I have to be honest in saying that I haven’t necessarily always thought to shop for clothing at Walmart in the past. However, ever since I collaborated with them to post about the launch of the new Sofia Vergara line a couple of months ago, I definitely started thinking of their offerings differently. I doing this opportunity, I discovered a whole host of brands and styles that Walmart offers. In their newest campaign, We Dress America, they are celebrating fashion for all. It’s all about great styles at even better prices. Under the We Dress America umbrella, there are a ton of cute and fun Summer styles for men, women and kids. Everything from bright and bold colors, to tropical prints and florals, to even statement swimwear. Check out some of my favorites, in addition to this look, below!

Plus Size Spring/Summer Style

This outfit just has Summer vibes written all over it. I immediately gravitated towards the skirt because, hello color! I loved the way that they designed the stripe pattern to go in different directions. And of course, the slit to show off my gams just sealed the deal. It is definitely made of a very light fabric so it would be ideal for those really warm Summer days. Since the skirt is really the star, I paired it with a simple black tank for contrast and then a fun pom pom, straw bag to fit the overall aesthetic of the look.

Be sure to check out all of the outfit details below!

Sunshine Ready w/ LOFT

Springtime is meant for dresses. The warmer weather, the blooming flowers and the longer days are the perfect recipe for a cute & comfortable Spring dress. I love the ones that are versatile since Spring weather can be unpredictable. It can be raining and cloudy in the morning, and then sunny by the afternoon. So, a dress that can allow for you to through a jacket on over it or slip on a pair of booties is key.

LOFT has been one of my go-to brands pretty much since their plus size launch. I love the quality and simplistic style that they offer. This goes for their denim, workwear and definitely for their dresses. LOFT has such a great selection of Spring dresses. They have all of the popular trends of the season from denim, to maxis, prints and patterns. That includes this floral black and white wrap dress that I am wearing here.

Wrap dresses are historically super flattering on all body types. They hug the body in all of the right places, while still being comfortable to wear. This one is no different. Since I have a larger bust, I really have to be mindful of making sure garments fit my upper half really well. Wrap dresses, like this one, really accentuates my frame without showing too much. The wrap around belt allows me to dictate how tight or loose I want the dress, while also defining my waist.

Black and white is just classic so I can continue to wear this dress season after season. It has a subtle floral print that I just love. Plus, black and white is the perfect palette to add pops of color. I couldn’t resist mixing in some yellow accessories that just blended seamlessly with this print. It’s the perfect Springtime look.

Be sure to check out the outfit details below, as well as some of the other dresses from LOFT that I’m loving at the moment!
