Burgundy & Audrey


Hey Ya'll, It's been awhile! 
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the dark colors, pumpkin spice scent, leaves falling, leather jackets and boots! Awwe I just love Fall!! When I saw this skirt I was inspired to blog again! Burgundy is a huge color this fall, I know I've added at least 5 burgundy pieces to my wardrobe! I found this skater style skirt one sale at Old Navy for only $20! They've been having a lot of sales lately. 

 And just how cute is this Tee? I'm a huge fan of Audrey Hepburn! She's one of the most poised and chic women to ever live (my opinion).  Old Navy has one upped the competition with their latest line of T-Shirts. Are you wearing any from them? I don't think I've ever had so many T's from Old Navy lol! But if you're looking for some iconic African American T's, you should check out Belle Rebel Boutique

Stepping Out!


I'm learning to step out of my comfort zone with my style. When I first saw this dress on the rack I was skeptical about trying it, I'm so glad I purchased it! Wearing a dress showing my midsection and entire back was so intimidating. But in the end I felt and looked good!  I had absolutely no regrets. And from the many compliments I received, I'll be stepping out of comfort zone more often.
  YOU SHOULD TOO!  
I also tried something different with my hair, adding flowers!

Let Me Take A #Selfie


I am definitely not the best #Selfie taker in the world! When I take them I either make a silly face, kissy face, or hold the camera at a stupid angle lol. I wish I could be more like my friends who My take the best selfies in America. The genius' at Glam Screen  have created the Selfie Ring to help taking flawless #Selfies at every angle! I have to get this ring ASAP!


It's a real ring!
Thanks for Reading!
XOXO

Jumping Jumpsuit!



Hey Guys! Sorry, I haven't posted in a while. Since school has ended my life has been hectic! But I'm back and hopefully without anymore delays! I've been doing a little *blog soul searching*, I want this blog to reflect my goals, adventures, and other aspects of my life through my personal plus sized style. Hope you enjoy my new direction!

You all know I love, love, love the color black. When I saw this jumpsuit I had to have it but I was a little iffy about getting it because it was sleeveless. I just recently became self conscious about my arms and I don't know where that terrible thought came from. I've started a new motto for myself (my friends know I make these up often lol), "I'm dressing for myself. If it makes me feel good, I'm wearing it!" This summer I'm embracing these beautiful chunky arms! 

                             

Happy is an understatement!

Denim on Denim!


Another Spring trend that I'm head over heels in love with is Denim on Denim a.k.a "the Canadian Tuxedo".  This isn't a new trend though; it got a bad rep in the 1990's when Jay Leno wore double denim and was the face of every worst dressed list. But now the trend has done a total 360! Everyone fashionista from Kim K to Sarah Jessica Parker has rocked this look effortlessly. And even with the growing trend, I still have friends that will never dress in denim from head to toe. Me on the other hand count me in for "All denim, all the time"! 

Here's My Take On The Trend:

Jeans: Old Navy Boyfriend Jeans (I had them tailored at the ankles, their boyfriend cut jeans length just doesn't work for me!)
