Chic in my Big Hat

Fashion to figure dress, 5 preview mint green laptop bag, Payless Shoes

Hey Loves,

I can’t tell you how excited I was to post this look. This past Saturday I got a chance to spend a wonderful few hours up at Saratoga Race Course. When I got the invite to go, I automatically knew that meant 2 things; Chic & a Big Hat. If you’ve ever kept up with the Kentucky Derby, you know exactly what kind of look to pull together. I played around with a couple different dresses but none really tickled my fancy. But I happened to be walking around in Fashion to Figure when I saw this white skater dress, and I knew it was perfection. 

Dress: Fashion to Figure| Bag: 5 Preview| Shoes: Payless| Hat & Jewelry: Borrowed

I was quite shocked at how amazing this dress felt on. It wasn’t thin or too “see-through” it was perfect. I was able to let the dress catch some wind without feeling like everyone would see my goodies. The length was perfect for my tall frame, even gave a hit of cleavage. And I was very proud of myself, I was able to keep my dress white all day. lol

It was my 1st time at the track, to say I had fun would be a huge understatement.

This bag, which is actually laptop case, was a HIT! My laptop wouldn’t fit, but I knew it would be a fantastic clutch. It’s from one of my favorite brands 5 Preview. You’ve seen me wear their clothing & bags numerous times. It does come with a strap so I’m figuring out how I plan to wear this bag again.

Needless to say my Saturday was amazing. Be on the look out for my recap of my day at the Races. Until next time loves.

#FFfaceoff; Transitional Summer Piece

Hey Loves,

This past Saturday me and my love went to a baby shower brunch for one of his co-workers. It was held at the Norwalk Inn up in Connecticut. It was super cute, it was held in the outdoor greenhouse, and we couldn’t have asked for a better day weather wise. So for the occasion I wanted to be “festive” cause for some reason I never equate fall colors and baby showers. I always feel that spring/summer colors “go with” baby showers lol So I pulled out ole reliable…my green tunic. I wore this into the ground during the summer

I’ll post about the baby shower in a separate post, so stay tuned for that loves.

Top: Fashion to Figure| Leggings: Dots| Boots: Payless| Bag: Gucci

This is the reason why I love tunics (or long tops) they are always very transitional. I paired this top with my leggings, and a simple boot, it’s simple and casual but still put together for a baby shower. This was my favorite piece in summer, shorts and sandals and I was ready to go. But for the fall, leggings and a pair of boots, works just as well.

If you follow me on instagram, you know I posted a couple selfies of my face & and hair. I decided, once I washed and retwisted my hair, I out a few braids in and let it dry, and they come one crinkled like this. It’s been a long time since I’ve done my hair like this, and I love it.

Like I said stay tuned for my post on the baby shower. Until next time loves.

Thrifted & Wrapped

Hey Loves,

As much as I love fall, I just can’t seem to let go of the summer. As I was was getting dressed this morning, I looked through my closet to see what I had. I came across this wrap dress that I got from a thrift store a couple months ago. I’ve worn it before, but haven’t posted about it. And I thought what the hell, it’s comfortable and I have a rather long day ahead of me.

I typically hate to follow “plus size fashion rules” but this one, wrap dresses are super flattering, I definitely stick to from time to time. You can never go wrong with wrap dresses. There are so many ways to wear them, and are definitely transitional pieces that every girl should own.

 Dress: Thrift Store| Shoes: Just Fab| Clutch: Fashion to Figure| Necklace: Eddy & Bri

I found the dress while browsing at a thrift store I frequent. I was really looking for anything in particular but then this caught my eye. And I knew it had to be mine.

Freshly twisted hair. I paired the outfit with my favorite vintage earrings and Eddy & Bri necklace. Something super simple

There you have it loves. Happy Fashion Week to my loves that are out & about for NYFW. Until next time loves.

A Little Sequins at Church

Happy Sunday all. I hope you had/are having a good weekend. This week was my 1st time back to church in a while (dont judge me lol) I knew that I had to come stepping. I like to think I have a very southern mentality when it comes to getting dressed for church. I believe in coming in your best. So needless to say, I had to look my best this morning. It’s very basic, but basics are something that we all need to have.

The top I just got in the mail from Zelie for She a clothing line own by one of my fave and fierce bloggers Elann Zelie. It took the US postal service forever to get it to me. But I’m glad I finally have it. The skirt is a basic black skirt fro Fashion to Figure. My mother’s best friend bought and didn’t care for it, so she gave it to me. Paired it simple earrings & and a watch along with my favorite Dereon black pumps and I was ready to go.

Outfit Details:
Top: Zelie for She
Skirt: Fashion to Figure
Shoes: Dereon via Shoe Depo
Bag: thrift store

Until next time loves

The Hem of a Tulip

So another trend that I’m excited to try is the very regal and chic Tulip Hem. I’m loving the look of the dresses and the skirts. for  me much like the hi/low hems, it allows for the focus to be on yours legs. And is flattering for pretty much all body types because of the draping. So whether you’re wearing it with flats or you favorite pair of pumps, the look will definitely speak for itself. It’s great for the office for us trendy working girls, but can be flipped for a night on the town with the girls or with the boo!

Tulip dresses from Dorothy Perkins

So tell me what do you think about this trend?
