Soft Pastels

Sometimes I just love the simplicity of an easy monochrome look like this one. Achieved easily with staple pieces in every woman's closet like a prim and proper pleated skirt and basic sweater. Adding touches of metallic keep the look contemporary and of course adds a little sparkle I always love.

I swear these pictures were taken before it got so brutally cold and I've just never posted!

I pretty much live in these June by June Ambrose boots, they are comfy, stylish and give just the right amount of edge to any outfit.

To transition these for colder months, I pair them with a pair of leather leggings or footed tights.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Navy & White Stripe

J Crew's sweater game has been ON POINT this season and this one doesn't disappoint. Every statement sweater I've worn the past two seasons have been for J Crew and although pricey in comparison to "average" standards the quality is unsurpassed and truly a great investment piece.

6 Ways To Wear Stripes

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of a few things, 1) anything black and white and 2) stripes (especially horizontal stripes) and as I was looking back on my blog a few days ago I noticed those two things in common with many of my outfits so I decided to compile a post of a few ways to wear stripes and also bust that whole "curvy women shouldn't wear stripes" myth because hey we look pretty darn good in stripes too, especially if it's done the right way!

Having the bold stripes on a classic moto silhouette helps you pull off the striped look effortlessly.

Grey or Gray?

For some odd reason I've always spelled the color grey as well, G-R-E-Y and as I noticed the other spelling of G-R-A-Y I took it upon myself to do some research on the variation of spelling. Seems like British people spell the word with the letter "E" and Americans spell it with "A" so there it is folks, hope you learned something new today.

On to the outfit, there is nothing easier than one-piece dressing whether it be a dress or romper and this casual dress is both comfy and stylish with a laid back look with the hood and stretch jersey fabric. Jersey is a fabric I always look for in straight size stores because it gives so much and us curvier girls can get away with the straight sizing!
