Duster Appeal


Sunnies: c/o HERE| Duster: c/o HERE| Tank: Similar HERE| Denim skinnies: NYDJs, old| Leopard sandals: Old, Similar HERE| Handbag: Zara

If it seems like I’ve been MIA just a tad, it’s totally true! It’s so hard for me to stay on track with my blog when I’m out of town ๐Ÿ˜Š I had great plans of how I’d stay on track this time around but I tell ya, the struggle is REAL! Thankfully a friend of mine snagged a few photos of me in this look after our breakfast date.
I’ve been on a kimono kick this month, today’s style story features a kimono style duster. Personally I prefer long, over-sized kimonos - this beauty totally fits the bill. Note: Size up if you like an over-sized fit ๐Ÿ˜‰ 
This print reminds me of flowers blooming at night ๐Ÿ˜ Dark florals have always been a favorite of mine. Some people prefer to wear them during the cool weather months, but all truthfully dark florals can be pulled off during the summer months equally well.
I kept my look simple by pairing the kimono with a nude tank and my staple skinny jeans. I tossed in leopard print sandals for a simple yet fun pattern toss. I’m looking forward to styling this beauty next with a monochrome palette.

Ciao Loves,
XO

A Summer Wedding


Dress: c/o HERE| Necklace: HERE| Suede sandals: Jeffrey Campbell, old| Floral clutch: TJMAXX

Hey Loves! I'm not sure if you remember, but I had been searching high and low for a dress to wear to the wedding of a close friend. I had almost given up and retreated to wear something that I already in my wardrobe but in the very last hour I finally found the perfect stitch at Finery London  ๐Ÿ’–
Not only is the bold yellow color stunning, but the cut and fit was totally complimentary on my frame. As soon as it arrived and I tried it on I knew that this was the ONE! Notice the updated twist on the cold shoulder trend? Classic yet trendy -Simply perfection in every way ๐Ÿ˜
I got a few pictures of my entire look at the wedding on my cell phone, my apologies for  the photo quality and limited views๐Ÿ‘€
I received so many compliments on this beauty that I just had to share it with you. 
I hope you're having an amazing weekend!
XO

Charmeuse in the City


Pink statement necklace: J Crew, similar HERE| Floral kimono/cami/pants: c/o HERE, HERE, HERE
Handbag: ZARA| Gold sandals: Old, similar HERE + another option HERE

Today’s look features the most comfortable coordinates that I have ever worn. This three-piece trio (charmeuse kimono, camisole, and wide leg lounge pants) packs a floral punch- laced with lush greens, gold, and a glimmer of pink. I wore it to the office (of course- as it is my style playground for just about everything๐Ÿ˜„) and out to dinner by the beach. In both instances, I felt like I had just stepped out of a high fashion couture shop, yet the pieces were as cool and comfortable as a silk pair of pajamas. I have a host of ideas of how I’d like to mix & match this trio, I can’t wait to live them out in real life.
This look is from one of my favorite plus size brands: ELVI. Every season their designs wow me- seriously, I am already considering their Fall line with great anticipation!  When my orders arrive (shipping is a breeze BTW), the fit is fantastic, quality superb, and the craftsmanship on point. I’ve shopped with them directly through their site, but they are also available online at Nordstrom (a great way to rack up points and get a Nordie's Note๐Ÿ˜‰) + ASOS Curve.
This lush watercolor print is Asian-inspired, exemplifying vintage elegance and chic ease. Notice the golden lace insets near the hem of the pants? A perfect accent to the gold rope belt!
Until next time Loves,
Xx
