The Je ne sais quoi

A Guide To A Stylish Plus Size Life

Dress | Shoes | Sunnies 

As soon as the first sign of Spring hits I start shopping for new dresses. For as long as I remember I've always been a dress girl and you can thank my Mom for that. Her emphasis on being appropriately dressed for every occasion has stuck with me. I also like the lightness that I feel when I wear a dress, it's symbolic of shedding the heaviness that you carry with you all winter.

As I was doing my daily comb through of ASOS, I was instantly obsessed with this dress! I honestly haven't found much on there that I have loved in the past few months, but this broke that spell for me. The structured ruffle neck, the stripes and the colors were a home run for me! I stepped out of my box and paired this with navy shoes to bring out the darker stripes in the dress. Sizing wise I bought a 20, ASOS runs big in my opinion. I'm so glad I did cause it fits perfectly.

Below I've included a few of my favorite picks from ASOS Curve spring collection! And they are having a buy more save more sale right now!  So it's a great time to shop!

What clothing do you look forward to wearing when the weather changes?

Top & Jean care of Simply Be | Boots-Old (love these) | Sunglasses

Sometimes plus-size fashion can get a bit behind the curve (no pun intended). But honestly this is happening less and less, especially when it comes to denim. This season I was pleasantly surprised by the amazing on trend denim that plus-size brands are showing, especially Simply Be!

I am a huge fan of Simply Be's denim. They fit like a dream and work with my problem areas. You've seen me wear it several times (here and here). We all know that good denim is hard to find! This spring Simply Be has gone all out with their denim offerings from high-waist jeans, perfectly distressed jeans, split hems and embroidered denim. I instantly fell in love with this fun pair of patched denim.

The fit was amazing and I loved the detailing of the patches and the studs. Unfinished hems are having a moment in my closet. They make everything a bit edgier. Pairing this dress with a simple white shirt balanced the entire look out. You my fair reader should definitely head over to check out Simply Be's We Are Curves Campaign.

Have you tried any denim trends? Which ones?

Jacket c/o Rachel Roy | Shirt-Old(Similar) | Jeans | Shoes-Old(Similar)

This look is everything I'm into right now. Florals, marigold, ruffles, and deconstructed denim.  It brought me to the certain giddiness that clothes can bring me too. To be fair I warned y'all that I was into florals and ruffles right now.

This floral moto jacket from Rachel Roy Curvy Collection is the cats meow. Perfect for the transitional weather that many of us are facing, the jacket looks amazing dressed up or dressed down. Did you see how my girl Jami styled it, so cute!!! Again I can't get enough of the amazing construction of Rachel Roy pieces. Such great construction and fit.

Seriously though with the way my sinuses are set up this is about as close to flowers as I can get. I have spent most of this week nursing a sinus infection, so please forgive me for not posting as much. Hopefully by next week my sinus will let me be free! 

Is anyone else having issues with their sinuses? What are you taking? And have you tried Rachel Roy Curvy yet?

Thanks  you for reading!

Dress-Old (Love this one) | Coat-Old(Similar) | Boots

Happy Spring y'all! Honestly can't believe it's spring. Why does it seem like time moving so fast? Currently I'm really feeling florals. They've had a refresh this season with so many cute offerings so my closet has been getting lined with a few new floral items. Plans to mix them with stripes and gingham dance through my head. I would love to see them get bolder, brighter and mod as the summer draws near.

My Sister and Nephew gave me this dress from H&M for Christmas. The bell sleeves called me instantly. Such a great item to transition season with my favorite sleeveless coat and otk boots. As the weather gets warmer, I know I will wear this with sandals and my summer bag.

Are you feeling floral? Or is it a totally no for you? I put a few of my favorite floral looks at the bottom of the post.
