Sis Mix-a-lot feat. Who What Wear

In Personal Style

It’s been awhile since I’ve done some pattern blocking. And with the arrival of cold weather, mixing patterns and blazers are the new norm. Today, I wanted to feature some of my latest purchases from Target’s Who What Wear Collection.

This form of pattern block is new to me. While I loved both the Ruffle Poplin Blouse and the Who What Wear™ Cheetah Print jacket, as standalone pieces, seeing them together really made a statement for me. This might be because I grew up in Catholic Schools and my skirts colored block 5 types of vomit green. Anywho, I really thought these two pieces would pop!

But I didn’t want to get carried away with myself so wearing my dark blue jeans and black pumps really helped compliment the colors in Ruffle Poplin Blouse and Who What Wear™ Cheetah Print jacket. The blue hues in the denim went well with the blue stripes, and the black pumps matched the cheetah print. Once you’ve found a way to color block two intricate items, wearing them items separately should be easy.

So what do you think?

Plus Size Pyjama jacket

Pyjamas By Day

In Fashion, Personal Style

Ever fall in love with a trend at first sight? That’s how I felt when I saw Maggie Gyllenhaal and Chanel Iman rocking their Pyjamas jackets. Today, I share my take on the plus size pyjama jacket by Simply Be. +

While I’ve seen most celebrities wear their Pyjama jackets with a coordinating pant, like this one from Simply Be , I want to test out its versatility. At first, I was thinking of color blocking with other floral capris or even a black pleated skirt. But I decided to go basic with this one: distressed denim jeans. Like how can you not win?? The blue hues compliment each other, and my nude heels bring out the beige undertones in the jacket!

Plus Size Blogger Wearing Lane Bryant Skinny Jeans

 

There was once a time where I had one permanent look: Denim jeans and blazers. Celebs like Rihanna and Beyonce would always be photographed wearing this look. Whether they were on the go or lounging around the City, this look was a staple in their day to day activities! So guess what, I am bringing this look back with the help of Lane Bryant!

You would think Denim is generic and that most brands can make a jean that satisfies all the ebb and flows of a plus size body. While we know that’s not EVER THE FACT; we find solace in brands that do go above and beyond to perfect denim for hips and curves. A good pair of denim jeans can go a long way, and while Fall is usually the debut of most denim, we all know they are here to stick around throughout the year. Picking a good pair of denim jeans is hard, though. While fast fashion jeans might flatten your belly and flatten your butt (if that’s your thing), investing in high quality will give you a bigger bang for your buck!

So when I saw Kelly Augustine post about her participation in Lane Bryant’s #TheNewSkinny campaign, I already knew where I should start looking to replenish my denim collection. Lane Bryant has over ten pairs of skinny jeans that I can’t seem to stop staring at. The jeans I am wearing are called the SUPER STRETCH SKINNY JEAN WITH RELEASED HEM! It truly is a super stretch so that I would size down from your normal size.

Also, Lane Bryant recently put out a campaign for their latest Blazers! The fashion gawds must’ve picked up on my vibes because I needed a new blazer to wear for dates and work! The PEPLUM-BACK BLAZER is the PERFECT blazer that transitions day to night. Pairing my outfit with a pop of off-white and shades of brown, now I actually look like a celeb that is on the go!!

Plus Size Maxi Skirt by Society +

There’s something about a plus size maxi skirt that just does it for me. I don’t know if it’s because I don’t have to wear undergarments with them ( sue me, I like boy shorts or nothing at all) or because they are flowy–without a care in the world. Either way, when you find a good maxi, you have show out! Society + put a new spin on their maxi skirts. This isn’t your everyday maxi skirt that’s entirely made up of cotton and spandex. The polyester fabric brings up the quality and masks the occasional panty line that guys gawk at during maxi season!

The Twirl Maxi Skirt can transition from morning to night! AND YES, IT HAS POCKETS!!! What more can you ask for in this life of sin? Now, I only wore it one way, but my blogger babes found four ways to wear it! Make sure you check out their posts and show them some Maxi love!! This skirt comes in 7 colors…so if you’re into that whole seasonal palette thing, you have enough to choose from. What are you waiting for? GET TO SOCIETY + AND GET YOURS TODAY!  Please tag me in your picture so I can repost!!

Yellow Mellow feat. Universal Standard

In Fashion, Personal Style

Nothing brings me more joy than finding clothes that work in the boardroom and transition well for a night on the town. When I first started my job in the Mayor’s Office, I had no idea how I could look professional and be stylish. My outfits were pretty bland, and most days I looked like a bag lady. Fast forward to 2017; some brands are bridging that gap, and I no longer feel like I have to sacrifice my style for the sake of looking “professional.” Also, the times are finally changing. No one is expecting women to dress like militant drones…my colleagues appreciate my pops of color here and there!

HUGE SHOUT OUT TO ALEXIS—SHE GETS ME!

Universal Standard is one of the standout brands that cater to the fashion-forward minimalist! With clothing from sizes 10-28, Universal Standard provides high-quality clothing for mid-range prices. For instance, the Geneva Dress comes in five colors and can easily be turned from a cute work dress to a night on the town dress. Depending on the color, you can pair with a blazer, long cardigan, belt, booties, etc.

I styled the Geneva Dress to show the versatility it provides. When belted with Universal Standard’s Obi Belt, it enhances my shape gives it a little sex appeal. This is perfect for a night on the town. When paired with summer brights, it gives my look a low-key look that is appropriate to wear to work. You may even find a new work bae or two—when no one is looking of course!
