Casual-ty


I'm taking some time off for myself, so all I want is to be comfortable.  It's been a while since I've done a "one piece, 3 ways" post, but this dress inspired me to do one.  It is super cute, casual, and comfortable and immediately thought of different ways that I would wear it.  I think I'm in love with scuba material.  It just wears so well.  It's has a great thickness with a good amount of stretch. This dress came from Mynt1792 and they will be having 30% off sale until July 6th by using the code, FIREWORKS30.  I

Style Notes:  On me this dress hit right above the knee, has a zipper that zips all the way down and for that can be fun if you want to show a little cleavage or a little leg.  My blazer came Jean Paul Phillippe and is old and no longer available, but I linked similar below.  The green jacket I got a 3X in and I felt ran small so size up one, I would usually get a 2X.

Orange is the New Black

Thank you guys so much for bearing with me this month.  Preparing for theCURVYcon pretty much took all my attention and so the blog posts were slacking. Anyways,  I actually took this jumpsuit with me to NYC and wore it when I went to Chef Roble's restaurant, Street BK, in Brooklyn. I ordered this online and was definitely surprised by the material.  I think I was expecting a ponte, but it's a very thin fabric.  It also stretches. Because of the thinness of the fabric, I am wearing tights that are leggings. The fabric pretty much showed all of my cellulite.  LOL.  I do, however, like the fabric. It worked well with my shape and felt was very warm weather appropriate.  I ended up getting a size 26 in the jumpsuit.  I actually saw someone at #theCURVYcon in the jumpsuit and they looked very cute.  

Style Note:  This jumpsuit is from the Lane Bryant 6th and Lane Collection, I didn't see it online anymore, but I did see in store a few weeks ago. I wold check in-store.

Traveling Shirts

Some of you guys hung out with me via social when I ventured over to Miami for the weekend.  Looking at these pictures, I sad that I'm not there enjoying the beach, the sun, and just relaxing. Waahhhhhhhh! Being in that beachy environment and wanting to vacation, but knowing I had a meeting to attend (because for some reason the work follows me LOL) I need to be able to pack items that would work well for what I was doing.  I packed a couple of shirts from Foxcroft to get me through my trip.  The blue and white shirt was super lightweight and worked well with the humid climate and had me meeting ready, appropriate, but most importantly still cool. I also just a simple white shirt, which traveled well and didn't need ironing, as a cover.  In Miami anything goes, you can choose to cover up after you leave the beach or not, but for me I like have a shirt I can throw on top of my suit. I forgot how that southeast weather can be unpredictable.  One minute the sun is shining, the next minute there is a monsoon. 

Style Notes:  Both button ups are in a size 22, which what I usually order.  I've said it before, but the fit on these shirts are great. There is no stretch, but the arms fit perfectly. Both shirts traveled great, the blue and white shirt particularly is designed to be wrinkle free, so NO IRONING. LOL.
