My 3 Fave Outfits of June

Hello Lovelies,

Canada Day has come and gone which means I have my favourite outfits for June. Here in Ontario it’s been a wash of different temperatures but I have three outfits that I have really loved putting together.


Striped to Perfection

I really love the striped pants in this outfit, it really is the vocal point. A simple cropped tank and a small purse finish off this look.

I have worn my rose gold clear sunnies a few times. But I loved how they added a little bit my drama to the top of my outfit.

The black straps are from my black bralette and play the role of jewelry for this look. I tried adding a necklace or a choker and I just couldn’t find something that really hit the spot.

The overall look is a bit more casual. A day downtown on a patio with the girls is definitely the perfect feel.

Brunch Babe


IMG_0150Being a girl of almost 6 feet I found that maxi dresses never sit quite right on me. They almost made me look like my dresses were kind of right. For the most part they never really sat well and I just gave up.

I love the way a knee length and midi length dresses hit me they accent just right and do wonders for the curves.

A little black dress is never out of style. I added a sweet little red and white striped button up for a touch of colour. I tied it up as a crop and rolled the sleeves for warmer weather.

I topped it off with my mom’s box clutch. I love adding a little bit of vintage whenever it’s possible.

Floral Explosion


IMG_0165This outfit is definitely our of my comfort zone, but the moment I saw it I fell in love and I’m so very glad I bought it. I actually bought this outfit for my trip to Mexico and it was a smashing success.

I loved the wide leg pants of this outfit. The were extreme complimenting of my figure. They are very light weight which is perfect for the summer and they are high waisted which is my favourite fit for pants as well.

My only negative with this outfit is the sleeves for the top. The upper arm hole was a bit tighter than I would have liked and even though it did stretch out after an evening of wear, it was definitely less than comfortable waiting for the sweet relief of elasticity to kick in.

In Simplest Terms….I Failed

Last week I made an attempt to accessorize my outfits for 6 days.

I know I was supposed to have all this wonderful info about how great the rest of my accessorizing week went but truthfully that’s not what this post is about.

This is how I successfully failed to finish my week of accessorizing.


WEDNESDAY


It’s wasn’t actually a terrible day. I managed to add some gold accessories to my outfit. A really cute anklet from Forever 21, it was a simple one strand with a fishtail chain pattern. A simple gold chain necklace and my rose gold glasses (although I opted not to wear the glasses when I got to work). I really though I was finally getting into the groove of accessorizing. I felt great and was so excited for the next day.


THURSDAY


My optimism was great on Wednesday, my cold was greater on Thursday. I woke up with a crazy cold I could barely get myself out of bed and the idea of even picking an outfit was tiring and put me in the midst of a toddler’s temper tantrum. I slapped some tights on and put a bit on concealer under my eyes and off to work I went. Sick and sleepy I slowly walked to the end of the driveway and hopped into an Uber (there was no way I was gonna walk today).


FRIDAY/SATURDAY


I completely gave up on my accessorizing by this point. I was sick and all I could imagine doing was sleeping. I was home by 6:15 and in bed by 7:30/8:00. Waking up was something my brain was wired to do and getting dressed was such a mindless activity that by the time I got to work on Friday I didn’t even realize I had picked out clothes. On Saturday I went to my friends house, we hung out and gossiped and laughed, Got some killer ice cream and ate some delicious salmon. I went home and curled up completely content with the fact failed my week of accessorizing. I didn’t want to do this by force, I truthfully wanted to try to add some life in my minimal outfits with some accessories but even though I didn’t make it. I really enjoyed the attempt.

3 Curvy Girl Fashion Tips

Hello My Lovely Readers,

A lot of my friends and family ask me what my style is or where I get my clothes. I’m a plus sized girl and I used to find it so difficult to dress my body.

I am blessed with wide hips and a small waist so a majority of my life was spent wearing jeans with belts that would eventually make the crotch of every pair of jeans I had look like I was ruching them or I would get the weird gap in the back of my pants. Continue reading 3 Curvy Girl Fashion Tips

My BFF’s Spring Look Book

Hello Lovelies,

As many of you may know I really love clothing. The idea of shopping gives me great joy and even more fun than that is helping a friend with her clothing choices. My best friend Felicia needed a hand cleaning up her closet so, of course, I gave her a hand. After giving her closets (yes she has two, one is a walk in!! Can you  say jealous?) a good spring cleaning we found a few outfits that she really loved for the finally arrived spring/summer season.  Continue reading My BFF’s Spring Look Book
