Have you ever worn a full skirt? Let me tell you that the girls in the 1950’s really had something going, its FANTASTIC. A total princess effect that is an instant confidence booster.
I got this beautiful skirt from Society Plus, during their recent sale. And I knew immediately when I pulled it out of the box that I wanted to style it first with a petticoat underneath, which luckily I already had(thanks Halloween costume!).
I plan on styling this skirt a few different ways, its super versatile. I would love to pair it with a sweater untucked and some opaque tights, or with a white button down and some black heels for more of a workwear vibe. OR OR, I would love to style this with a black body suit, and some pearls for a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” vibe.SO many options.
Never be afraid to buy classic pieces and then mix them up with trendy accessories, or in this case a trendy top. Remember half the battle of being “Stylish” is being confident!
Have a happy Friday!
I affiliate with Society Plus, but purchased this skirt myself.
I have to be honest about something right now. It was FREEZING when we shot this look. Like I have sunglasses on because my eyes were tearing up from the cold. So unfortunately most of the photos have me scowling in them, because I couldn’t help it. LOL.
Ok, now that my cold disclaimer is out of the way. I want to cover a couple of thoughts in this post. First- A review of Khloe Kardashians Good American Jeans, and Second- a little blurb about the it color for Spring(ps its green).
Khloe Kardashians Good American Jeans, they were released this past Fall and feature a wide size range(size 00-24). You can find them at Nordstrom, GoodAmerican.com(and probably other department stores lol). I got mine at Nordstrom, and they are PRICEY! I luckily had a gift card, and a Nordstrom Note that covered my pair. That being said, now that I have them in my possession, I would totally pay full price for another pair. But as most of you know, I am a little bit of a jean crazy girl.
Here is why, they are stretchy, but still feel like denim. They haven’t lost that denim feel, which many brands get away from when they start making the really stretchy jeans. They are SOOOOO high waisted, and they don’t fall down like other brands do. I am wearing the Good Legs Ripped Skinny Jeans, and these suckers STAY right where you put them. I ordered them in a size 16, and I probably could have gone with my usual 14, but I wanted to be sure they would fit(and I am also not a size snob, I look at the size chart and order accordingly).
I have read a bunch of reviews on this line, and some of my fellow curvy fashionistas felt that some of the rips were not flattering on different plus size bodies, that is partially the reason why I went with a “safer” ripped pair. For my next pair I can’t decide between a true black ripped up pair, and a blue washed ripped pair OR the “Good Waist” corset style that is supposed to cinch you in. I would love all three but can’t see spending 500 dollars on Jeans at the moment.
Ok, the second part of this post is a quick blurb on the color of Spring, Army Green. So girls, get your green jackets out from fall and find some spring colors to layer under them. Think pink, cream, baby blue. I received this jacket care of In The Style. Its a light fabric that works perfectly as a topper for your favorite casual look. It is belted, if you are into that type of thing. I like to wear it both ways.
Have a good Wednesday! Feel free to email me or comment with any questions!
P.S. If you don’t get my ACDC reference in the title of this post, then you need some good classic rock in your life immediately.
What is it about pretty red dresses? I feel like Valentines day is the perfect excuse to break out that sexy dress you have had sitting in your online shopping cart. I always feel a little extra boost of confidence when I am rocking something in red. A power color that catches your eye and exudes confidence.
I paired this dress and coat together, to create a layered look that was comfy and sexy. This dress was a little short on me(when I say a little short, I mean really short. Make sure you order one or two sizes up in this style), and the jacket helped me feel covered.
I KNOWWWW I have been posting a lot with these OTK boots lately(and unfortunately they are sold out), I literally can not help it. I just love them so much. I will link a couple of options that are left in wide calf and regular, most sites have them on sale right now because SPRING is around the corner.
Do you have plans for Valentines day? My husband and I will probably end up going to one of our favorite new spots, OR we will stay in to watch Shameless and eat ice cream.
