Winter Spots

Coat-(Old)(Similar here and here), Jeans-NYDJ, Boots-Forever21(old), Bag-Rebecca Minkoff





I would be lying if I didn’t say I was over winter. Especially since my city awaits an ice storm as we speak. I am over winter clothes, heavy boots, socks (that I never wear), coats, gloves well you get my drift. Alas it’s not over so I have to work a little harder to find a few bright spots in these dreary days of winter.

My favorite form of spots is leopard print. So whenever I’m ready to throw in the towel on winter I pull on my favorite leopard coat and head out the door. I still manage to get warm and fuzzy feelings when I wear this coat. I am quickly reminded of my yearly excitement when winter comes around and I can wear my coats.  This gently reminder gives me the push I need to make it through the winter season and to enjoy every bit of it not matter what may come.
So my lovely readers what’s getting you through the winter season? Any special article of clothing?

Thank you for reading and for your constant support!

It starts with a Necklace



Necklace-Addition Elle, Coat-Old Navy, Jeans-Lane Bryant (Similar)(Similar) Shoes & Sunnies-Target







Many times I am inspired to create a look around a certain piece from my wardrobe. A favorite pair of shoes, a great lipstick, or a piece of jewelry. A few weeks ago I noticed this beautiful necklace in a giveaway on Addition Elle’s website and decided to enter for myself and Georgette. I was so excited to find out we won!

I loved the bright, bold colors of this necklace that compared and contrasted with the softness of the pearl beading. My mind went into overdrive wondering how many looks I could put together with this one statement necklace and this pink coat that I got on extreme clearance at Old Navy was the first thing that stood out. The parallels of soft and bold were perfect to me blending together to make a great look for a casual day or dinner.

So what inspires you when you get dressed?

Thank you for reading!

My Curvy Valentine: Plus Size Outfits




Sweater-Banana Republic (Similar), Skirt-Eloquii,Shoes-DVF( SAKS/Sold Out Online but still in stores)









  
Earlier this week I brought you my casual Valentine’s look and I discussed what the day meant to me. This time around I am collaborating with a few other bloggers to bring you My Curvy Valentine! We got together to show you our Valentine’s Day style!

In the past I have celebrated V-Day in a variety of ways from hosting singles parties, dinners, comedy clubs, vacations you name it I’ve done it. Picking out a great look for that special night out can be a daunting task, but I think you can make anything Valentine’s Day appropriate. I fell in love with these DVF heart booties in Saks a few weeks ago and walking away from them was not an option! I knew my V-Day look would revolve around these amazing shoes. Since they are such a statement shoe, I wanted to pair them with a simple and chic look to highlight the spirit of the holiday! This striped crop sweater and midi skirt were the perfect option! Adding this ban.do heart was the extra pop of Valentine’s that made the look perfect!

Whether you are dressing up or dressing down, whether you are single or taken I hope you have the most amazing day filled with happiness and love! I know I asked with the last post, but for everyone dressing up for the Holiday what are you wearing?

Please head over and check out the fabulous looks from my amazing collaborators:
