#30PlusStyle: Cutting It Short


Shirt-JcPenny, Shorts-It's Fashion Metro, Shoes-GoJane, Clutch-My Moms, Sunnies-Stella McCartney






It’s time for the latest edition of #30PlusStyle and for this edition we are wearing shorts! If you have been reading my blog for a while you know I love shorts! They are a summer staple for me as I constantly try to stay cool in this southern heat, but I can understand why so many people approach the subject of shorts with extreme caution. Especially as we get into our Thirties I think we are bombarded with notion that you have to wear more modest clothing. I am here to tell you that’s simply not true! My motto has always been to wear what works for you! Ignore trends, rules and find the best short fit that makes you feel amazing!

I loved this striped pair that I picked up from Its Metro Fashion and I paired it with my favorite peplum blouse (I’m not letting go of my peplum tops). I feel like the peplum provided me with more coverage that I wanted with these shorts. So ladies how do you feel about shorts? Do you love them? Do you wear them? I would love for you to know!

Yours, Mine, Ours...


Vest & Skirt- c/o Yours Clothing, Tank-Old Navy, Sandals-Go Jane






As the temperatures rise here in Alabama I am constantly looking for wardrobe staples that will keep me cool in this ridiculous humidity and heat.  I stick to shorts, sundresses and cool tops for most of the summer. When the team at Yours clothing contacted me to try a look from their summer collection, I jumped at the chance to try something that could become a summer staple.

Instantly I loved this white denim vest and mini circle skirt. I mean who doesn’t love a circle skirt. I am so used to wearing pencil skirts to work it’s always a great chance to change it up in my off time to wear a new silhouette. I can’t say enough about how much I love this skirt. It is perfect for this season (i.e. you will see it again)! The vest is also a great summertime topper to finish a look off! In the fall I love having a jacket or blazer to top off my look, so this serves in the same function.

Have you guys ordered anything from Yours yet? What did you get?!

From Here To Eternity...


Dress- c/o Swak Designs, Necklace-Bauble Bar, Shoes-Target(old), Sunnies-BCBG(old)


 



There isn’t very much I am intimidated by fashion wise, except for the convertible dress. But alas, I am a true example of if you give a woman too many options I may run for the hills. I was never very sure of how to tie the dress, how to wear the dress and if I could pull it off.  When the lovely folks at SWAK Designs contacted me about trying one I knew I had to overcome my fear. A closet staple for many women, the plus size convertible dress offers an extreme versatility that will last a lifetime, how can I not give it a try. I did a bit of research on the dress and I was shocked by how easy SWAK has made choosing a style and learning how to tie the dress.

SWAK Designs has a series of amazing styles for the dress and they have artfully created instructional videos that teach you how tie each style. As a novice the convertible dress these videos were extremely helpful in assisting me on how to secure the different styles I was interested in. Even my Mom got in on the deal and loved the idea of the dress. The style I was most drawn too was the “Maya Dress”. I found this style to be edgy and very different from the normal ways that I have seen most plus size convertible dresses styled over the years.   To complete my look I added this multi-chain bib necklace from Bauble Bar (that I am totally obsessed with) and a simple pair of nude shoes.

The Eternity dress was extremely comfortable, I love the fact that I felt like a million dollars and I was wearing a cool, comfortable dress that could easily transition from day to night as well as from casual to dressy.  Right along with my fear over this dress I have to also admit that I thought the plus size convertible dress was a bit of a cliché, but let me tell you I have to admit I was wrong! I am excited to have this classic addition to my closet. Stay tuned I am going to try this dress another way and post it too my blog.     
Have y’all tried a plus size convertible dress? How do you feel about its place in your wardrobe?
