Day to Night Resort Looks with Loralette

Day to Night Resort Looks with Loralette. Happy New Year!! I know we are well into January at this point, but this is my first post since my #selfcare hiatus. I haven’t take a week off of blogging in over a YEAR! So I decided that it was high time to take a little time to myself and boy did I need it! I am back now and ready to continue to bring you a fresh perspective and style tips for this year. IN FACT! I am so excited to be sharing some resort pieces with you from one of my favorite plus brands Loralette!

In todays blog post I am sharing a Day to Night Resort with Loralette, what is especially fun about this is…I shot these looks while on vacation and really went from day to night in them!

DAY

I paired a fun beach bag, some colorful sandals, and bright earrings with this stripe dress from Loralette. I wore this look to the Spa and we shot this look post massage(so relaxing). We have vacationed in Key West many times, and usually we stay on the island in a condo or rental house, a few years ago we stopped in at Casa Marina for massages and a beach day and now its tradition. This year it wasn’t beach weather, so we hit the Spa and then took off for lunch at our favorite restaurant on the island, Blue Heaven.

The most intriguing aspect of this garment is the relaxed sleeve. As a curvy girl, I feel like I ALWAYS end up in tops and dresses with fitted sleeves. You know the fit, its an age old popular one for curvy women, fitted arms, boxy waist. Its so refreshing to have a knitted dress with relaxed sleeve. I love the bold black and white stripe, this dress has an elastic waist with a faux drawstring.

STYLE TIP- Style this dress in the Spring with white sneakers and minimal jewelry for a sportier look. Its fun on vacation styled with bold accessories for a beachier vibe. 

 

NIGHT

Key West is known for the famous Duval Street, and if you have been to the island than you know that Duval is party central. I styled this tiered hem olive green dress with sky high heels, my favorite Clare V clutch and some fun statement earrings. I love the way the hot pink earrings pop with the olive color, and you know my thing for a great pair of heels. I have worn this particular pair all over(see them in NYC HERE).

I love this dress for nights out on vacation, when the temps drop at night I like to have my “sun kissed/burnt” skin covered up. This particular piece is great now, and will pair really well some OTK boots for Fall an Winter weather at home.

Olive green has been so in this past season, I love finding new ways to mix this color into my wardrobe. I wore this dress for an evening out on the town, we had dinner and went to a few different bars along Duval St… Our favorite would be Irish Kevin’s, we love the live entertainment and raucous atmosphere!

A few details on this piece that are important to note. The tiered hemline is extremely flattering and a fun way to add dimension and texture. I found this dress to run small in the bust, I recommend sizing up for the best fit.

Last Minute Shopping with Liz Louize. I am sharing an easy outfit combo that is a go to for me during the winter and the holidays.

Last Minute Shopping with Liz Louize

This post is sponsored by Liz Louize, and is a part of monthly series, Last Minute Shopping with Liz Louize. For more about the boutique go HERE, HERE and HERE.

First of all, how is Christmas one week away!

In todays post I am sharing an easy outfit combo that is a go to for me when I need to put an outfit together in a hurry. The formula is simple, a dressed up knit, skinnies, over the knee boots and some BIG earrings. During the holidays I reach for knits that have a little sparkle in them, I love adding a little holiday glam to my casual wardrobe.

Last Minute Shopping with Liz Louize. I am sharing an easy outfit combo that is a go to for me during the winter and the holidays.

I picked up this knit at Liz Louize on my last trip to the store, this top is from the Full Figured Fashionista line and currently in STOCK at Liz Louize! The boutique have a couple of different pieces from this line, while in store the associates were telling me that this brand was created for the plus figure, and that each piece is thoughtfully made for the curvy babe.

This garment photographed black and brown, but really the metallic thread is more of a gold color. The color blocking on this piece is meant to draw the eye to the smallest part of the waist, a universally flattering style that is pleasing to the eye and a definite confidence boost. I love the sleeve length(extra long and cozy), AND this top covers the front and back so its perfect for leggings!! The first time I styled this top, it was with leggings and booties I was so comfy all day. I plan on keeping this top in my regular rotation this winter, its just too comfortable to get pushed to the back of my closet.

Where are my last minute shoppers at? The window is quickly closing on shipping dates, and if you happen to have a husband(like mine) that prefers to wait until 3 days before Christmas to do his shopping then you need a trusted boutique that you can send him off too! The girls at Liz Louize have everything a last minute shopper needs to excite the curvy babe in your life! I share my Liz Louize finds on Curls and Contours all the time, and so many of the pieces that I have shared recently are still in stock. From the Joseph Ribkoff OTS top to the super fun tee I just shared on Instagram. These pieces show the variety the store offers, if you have something in mind as a gift or something you want CALL the store and they can help you!

Society+ Anne Lace Skirt

Good morning! I wanted to share a quick holiday inspiration post featuring my white Society+ Anne Lace Skirt. I have been wearing my black skirt so much lately but haven’t been pulling the white lace out. I styled this look with a green J.Jill sweater and a red scarf, for a christmas themed look.

Can you believe that we are just two weeks away from Christmas! I have been working away on finishing up my Christmas list and I think I am almost finished! I just need something each of my FOUR nieces can wear and then my list will be done. THANK GOODNESS!

I can’t be the only girl out there that hates dealing with tights, can I? I would much rather put on a sassy pair of boots and be free than wear tights. I find myself reaching for OTK boots more and more this season, they are just so simple and a great pair of boots really can add to your look!

A texturized scarf is a great way to add interest to your look, I also love cozying up with a scarf when I am out to eat, or hanging at home. Green, red and white are so festive this time of year one of the reasons this look works so well is the textures and the deeper hue of the red and green. I love dressing for the holidays but want to avoid looking like Cindy Lou Who LOL, going for the colors of the season in deeper hues is a great way to achieve that.

Chic Soul Gift Guide

This post is sponsored by Chic Soul, and features my Chic Soul Gift Guide

Today on the blog I am sharing a gift guide for the clothes loving curvy babe. I set up my picks for the different curvy babes in your life from the girl that loves all things casual, to the beauty that lives for floral and ruffles and pink, to that glamazon that is rarely caught without leopard somewhere on her body.

I was referred to Chic Soul from my dear blogger bestie Liz, and I found myself gravitating to their site to peruse all the options. I am always on the hunt for unique pieces to mix into my wardrobe, and during the holidays you can never have too many cute outfits. When I sat down to map out this post, I knew I wanted to share some options for anyone shopping FOR a curvy babe. There are SO many options at Chic Soul, its easy to get lost, so I took some of the work out of it for you. I have my top three picks for three different types of tastes.

Lets get started.

The Glamour Girl.

Hi my name is Anne, and I am a self admitted glamour girl. I freaking love me some leopard, and black dresses make my life complete. I am known to carry expensive handbags, and I love big jewelry. Like a lot. This category was really really easy for me to put together, because DUH its my favorite. I included some leopard, dark florals, and a black sweater with a unique sleeve detail.

You know that girl in your life that lives in any variation of pink,sees lace as a neutral, and lives for pretty florals. My top picks for the girly girl in your life are a floral top with ruffled sleeves, a soft mocha cardigan with a ruffled hemline and a gorgeous pink top with black lace inset.

Maggy London

This post is sponsored by Maggy London

Today on the blog I am sharing some newwwwnesssss. This newness is two fold, I am bringing you a new brand, and with that brand I am sharing a brand new dress! Maggy London contacted me a couple months back and asked if I would be interested in sharing a piece from their curve collection with my readers and followers, it was a definite yes! I have stalked Maggy pieces for special events in the past, I love the classic styling and quality that goes into each garment.

Maggy London specializes in creating dresses that offer a polished style and impeccable craftsmanship. Having not worn a Maggy London dress before I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I am sooooo impressed with this dress. The craftsmanship is so evident, from the lining(yes its completely lined) to the perfect statement sleeves. If you have been following me for awhile then you know I have a thing for ruffle sleeves, and I will tell you that not all ruffles are created equal. Its all about the type of fabric and how the ruffle is attached to the garment. AND now I have seen the light, and been completely spoiled by Maggy London. LOL.

Lets talk styling. 

This dress is called the “Stevie Curve Midi” and is considered a sheath style, the fabric is a crepe polyester blend and lays really nicely over the body. This piece is fully lined and features an invisible zipper that runs up the back. I styled this dress with minimal accessories, and my go to block heeled sandals. Another great shoe pairing would be a classic nude pump(like these). This dress is great for a party or a wedding guest look, the statement sleeves add drama and interest so keeping your heels low key is a must.

I have become a jewelry minimalist over the years, most days I just wear my wedding rings, but when I am in the mood to add something its almost always a statement earring. I paired some classic red tassel earrings for a pop of color to match my red lip. In the warmer months I could easily pair orange or yellow accessories with this dress for a warmer weather look. With the holidays upon us I really love the red.

This dress has a classic ease of wear look to it, its effortlessly chic, so styling it was a breeze. Keep it simple, and classic for outfit success.

 

In this post I am sharing a dress from the Maggy London curve line "London Times Curve". Maggy London is a brand that specializes in femininity.

Plus Size Outfit Roundup

Just a quick post today sharing a plus size outfit roundup, photos that have made it to social media but not linked up on the blog. Can you believe Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK! How has this month gone by so quickly!

Today for my Thankful posts I wanted to share how thankful I am for my support system. The people in my life that are there to celebrate my successes and talk through my failures. Humans are social creatures and we all need a “tribe” as I continue to grow up and out my tribe has changed and grown smaller, but there are people there for me that have been there for years. I know that not everyone has a close relationship with their mother, and a cousin that is like a sister, but its so important to find people in your life that you can celebrate and be vulnerable with. I am so thankful to have a tribe that supports and pushes me to grow. There is family in my tribe, and friends from High School, the man-child I married, and blogging has brought me a work friend that I desperately needed. I challenge you to text the people in your support system today and thank them for always being there for you.

Ok the sappy part of the post has now ended. Lets get to the links. 🙂

Sequin Jacket with Liz Louize

This post is part of a monthly series with Liz Louize, for more about this boutique go HERE, HERE and HERE

This week on the blog I am teaming up with Liz Louize to share how a trendy statement piece can dress up items you already own! I love being able to add things to my closet that will easily mix and match with my “old stuff” lol. To me this is just practical dressing and an integral part of my fashion personality. I scooped up this velvet and sequin bomber jacket the last time I was in Liz Louize, I knew it would be perfect for the holidays and would mix and match well with other pieces in my closet. The silhouette of this piece lends a very casual vibe, but the fabric and sequin sleeve kick things up a notch. Versatile pieces like this are great to have in your closet, and in my opinion if you can shop them from a boutique with a curated inventory you will be getting the most bang for your buck.

Obviously, if you have been following me for awhile then you KNOWWWW I love black dresses so my first thought was to style this jacket with a black dress. I pulled this one out of my closet and bada bing I had myself a brand new outfit. Liz Louize has quickly become my go to place for statement piece shopping, and luckily for me the store is in the area BUT if you aren’t local they have an online store TOO!

Jacket 

This jacket falls into the bomber category, it features black sequins on the arms and a quilted velvet across the front and back. I found that this piece fit true to size, I am wearing a 1. I will be styling this jacket again for a date night out, and I plan on pairing it with distressed denim and a black t-shirt for a casual look.

Style tip- Its easy to work in a flashy sequin piece when you go matchy matchy. If you have a sequin piece in mind that you like to style but aren’t sure about making a “statement” try pairing it with something that is the same color! I love black so I am always pairing statement pieces with dark shades, but this tip works great for any color!

Liz Louize has so many new arrivals AND you can shop them now online! If you are in need of a holiday look, or even a gift for the curvy babe in your life. You need to check out this store! I follow them on Facebook for up to date info on specials and discounts! I have found that keeping up with my favorite boutiques on social media is a great way to keep an eye on their inventory and know about current sales. You can check out the Liz Louize Facebook HERE.

Thanksgiving with Loralette

This post was sponsored by Loralette and features gifted clothing.

This week on the blog I am sharing two Thanksgiving looks from Loralette, one casual and one dressier! Everyone has different family traditions, some families have a formal affair on Thanksgiving and some a casual hanging in the kitchen vibe. Loralette offers the curvy babe options for both. And SHOES, if you have been here before then you know Avenue has the bessst shoes(link HERE).

Continuing on with my thankful series this month, I wanted to share a book that my husband and I read a couple of years ago. The book is called “The 5 Love Languages” this is a book we read a few years into our marriage and it has been something that we talk about and use as a reminder on the best ways to show love and thankfulness/appreciation to each other. This is how it works, you read the book and learn about the different love languages, then you take the quiz and find out what yours are. Your partner does the same. Then you know how you feel loved and appreciated the best, and you learn how your partner feels love and appreciated best.

Dress | Boots 

The weather is turning here in Michigan, and my short dress/bare legs days are numbered. So I am soooaaaaakkkking it up as long as I can. I paired these rugged/glam OTK boots with a lace up floral mini, this burgundy dress feels distinctly fall and perfect for a harvest celebration like Thanksgiving. The heeled boots dress this look up and lend it a winter vibe.

In the fall one sure fire way to amp up the cozy factor is to add a a blanket scarf, I keep one in my car in the colder months that way I can be cozy at any moment! LOL I believe that in the fall and winter a plaid scarf is basically a neutral. 🙂

On the website this piece looks like it has a “Swing” shape, but really this piece is more of an A line silhouette. The top is meant to be fitted and then at the seam at the waist lets go into a fun A line skirt! This piece has an inner tank dress that is attached at the shoulders. This gives you some flexibility with how much chest you want to show.

These OTK boots are called the “Hunter Over the Knee” boot which I think is really fitting. When my I first tried them on my husband told me I looked like I was ready to go out in the woods. LOL. I have a 17.5″ calf and these were a perfect fit. The lacing adds a unique touch and I really like the distressed look. I would pair these with jeans and a long chunky knit cardigan for a casual look.

Blouse(Similar) | Denim | Booties 

I love getting dressed up, but for most American families Thanksgiving is a casual affair. Every year I usually end up in jeggings and a flowy blouse(that way its easier to get seconds on stuffing and pie LOL). This blouse sold out before I could get this post up, but I will link up some similar blouses from Loralette.

My current favorite Loralette blouses-

Floral Crochet Trim Top

Floral Tie Bell Sleeve Top

Lace Bell Sleeve Top

I am wearing a 16 in these and per the usual the waistband is a bit big, but the legs are perfect. LOL.  The day we photographed this look it was 40 degrees out, I had planned on wearing THESE with this look but the weather was not permitting. Loralette is the sister brand to Avenue, I have heard great things about Ave denim, and can say that Loralette does not disappoint in this area either. These jeans are trendy, and stretchy but still hold their shape. I shared another pair of Loralette denim HERE. These jeggings are meant to be cuffed and offer a 3 button detail at waistband, which makes the waistband wider and offers more coverage.

Cardigan | Top | Jeans | Boots | Bag 

Velvet has been everywhere lately! There are so many different ways to bring some velvet into your wardrobe this season. I scooped this velvet cardigan up while shopping in Memphis in early October and I love the boho chic vibe. This cardigan is actually a blend two hot trends right now, velvet and embroidery. The back detail is so fun and really what caught my eye while I was shopping.

Whenever I travel I like to look up local boutiques to shop, so I can find unique things and meet new people. While I was in Memphis on family vacation I looked up a boutique that I have followed for years and never had the chance to visit! Pink Coconut Boutique is a trendy boutique that carries both regular and plus sizes along with accessories, shoes, bags and jewelry. I loved finding affordable pieces from Pink Coconut Boutique that are really unique, IN fact! A dress from PCB is the subject of the first blog post on Curls and Contours! 

This entire look is available in both regular and plus sizes! This cardigan is also available in black! 

How I styled this look

I styled this cardigan with a white lace up tee, ripped skinnies and my favorite and very worn booties. I wanted this look to have a distressed feel to it, so I played up the “western” vibe of the velvet with my favorite ripped skinnies and a distressed tee. I grabbed my favvvorrrrite clutch to add a little leopard to the mix. I wear so much black, its really refreshing to have a brown piece to mix in!

I want to style this cardigan again with more of a polished feel, I am thinking dark wash sleek skinnies, a white oxford shirt and some brown riding boots.

How would you style this cardigan?

How is it October 30th already? I feel like it was September 1st yesterday, and here we are moving into November. This week I am kicking off my “Thankful” series. This November all of my posts will have a common theme, in each post this month I will be sharing my thoughts on thankfulness, this may be ideas on how to show others you are thankful to have them in your life, or just a quick blurb on something I am so thankful to have in my life.Today I am sharing a review of this Yours Clothing dress and boots.

Have you checked out Yours Clothing before? I LOVE sharing garments from YC on the blog, this UK based brand has SO MUCH stock and options for the curvy girl. There is literally something for everyone! To read more about YC on my blog click HERE, HERE or HERE.

Where are my girls with wide calves at? I am soon happy to share some fantastic OTK boots with you, these are a faux suede and they accommodate a wide calf(my calf is 17 inches and there is room to spare), I am 5’6″ and these come up well above my knee. I have worn them with dresses and leggings and they are a really subtle way to dip your toe into this trend. I love this trend especially for the colder months, I need coverage but I hate having to give up my short dresses thats where OTK boots come in. They look so chic, and give you that coverage that a ling dress or pant would provide. I am sharing the exact pair I am wearing but the stock is low right now, so I have linked a similar pair from YC below.

Black Stretch Over the Knee Boot – 78.00

I was specifically looking for a dress that would be great for a dressier Thanksgiving/Holiday event to share, but the dress had some criteria it had to meet first. This Blue Vanilla Curve dress fit the bill perfectly. I loved this dress for holiday gatherings because it ISNT TIGHT. This swing style dress has a lot of style but girl you can eat in it and be comfortable. The deep V/choker neckline adds a some flirt to dress that flows away from the body for a universally flattering fit. The trendy shoulder detail keeps this piece current and on trend. The polyester/elastine blend fabric has a great weight to it, and some nice stretch. I also really love that this piece isn’t red, orange, brown or green. This is a dress for the girl that wants to look dressed up, comfortable, and loves darker colors and not the classic “holiday color palette”.

Do you follow Yours Clothing on Facebook? This is my favorite social channel to keep up with what YC is up to, I love seeing what stores are opening and their Face of YC contest!

I am so thankful to be able to share my fashion finds with my readers and followers, without you Curls and Contours wouldn’t be what it is. Two years ago when I first started Curls and Contours I took a leap of faith, I told myself that with enough ambition and grit I could create something that could help and inspire others. And today as we move into another holiday season, I am so thankful to have you all in my life. Thank you for stopping in at Curls and Contours. It means more than you know.
