BIRTHDAY DRESS| SATIN FLORALS

A few weeks ago, I celebrated my birthday with a number of dinners with my family and friends. It seems the older I become, the more low-key I prefer my birthday celebrations. Though I must add that I’m married to a foodie, so those “low-key” birthdays always involve testing out a new restaurant. Now that we live in Brooklyn, we are surrounded by hybrid of restaurants from French-Mexican fusion, oyster bars, to modern thai and the list goes on and on. Although I’ve been on this healthy kick lately, it becomes more and more challenging to stay obedient with the most mouth watering menus around.

Hungry yet? Yes…so let me deter to this beautiful floral dress from Maggy London. Spring is synonymous to flowers, for obvious reason, and this dress fit the bill. I naturally gravitated towards it ever since opting for a blush colored wedding gown, I’ve become borderline obsessed with the shade of blush. The high-low silhouette allows to show a little leg while being conservative from behind. The fit and flare cut is quite flattering on all body types and particulary on plus size shapes. It’s fitted on top and flares out camouflaging the abdominal area. Ugh, it’s so feminine and the satin fabric just adds that air of luxury. It’s the perfect dress for a night out, wedding, or any other semi-formal event. Mark my words, you won’t be disappointed. Get my dress HERE but I’ve posted some others I love below.

CASUAL STYLE| CAPRI LEGGINGS AND BOOTIES

Black is a universal color for a reason. So chic yet easy to wear and looks awesome on everyone. As much as I am a fan of color, Ive noticed that Ive been adding more dark pieces to my wardrobe. This choker style top is the latest addition. If you dont already know, chokers have been making a huge comeback. I love that this top already has the trend incorporated in the style so it’s already done for you.

CASUAL STYLE| KNIT DRESS + CONVERSE

We recently moved from an area that was more residential to a neighborhood filled with restaurants and amenities prompting us to be outside more so comfy shoes and no-fuss clothing on the weekends, are making more appearances in my wardrobe. I came across this inexpensive knit faux wrap dress which I could already tell, will become a repeat offender. Paired with an old utility jacket (current version here) converse and bandana scarf for some flair, my casual look can work for just about anyone.

SPRING FASHION AT SEARS

Special thanks to searsStyle for sponsoring this post.
With spring officially here, I’m quickly transitioning from bulky winter pieces to more colorful and vibrant colors. This boho-esque peasant blouse from Simply Emma is lightweight and as you can see below, I was able to wear it as a dress by sizing up.  I love the fringe detailing around the neckline as well as the tribal pattern and ruffled hem.  It gives the blouse a little more personality, in my opinion. If you’re not as bold as I am and are wary of showing your stems, I recommend wearing this top with a pair of white skinny jeans or capris and finishing off your look with cognac colored sandals or going bohemian with wooden platform sandals.

I’m still digging the color navy from winter and loved that this lacy top came in that hue. I paired it with these pair dark wash skinny jeans that I cut and frayed at the hem and black pumps. I will warn you that the top is semi-sheer so unless you want to show your bra, I recommend adding a camisole, like this one from the Simply Emma, for a more conservative take. It certainly doesn’t take away from the look.

FESTIVAL READY


 
Special thanks to Target for sponsoring this stylish post

 This time of year, I love looking at festival pics from various concerts and events throughout the States on Instagram. As much as I can appreciate the music, I’m really there to look at all the bohemian festival fashions. I’ve become quite obsessive over details like macrame, pastel colors, fringes and countless others. Living in NYC, music festivals don’t really appear until the summer. However, I’ve been able to play around with some festival-fresh pieces from Target. I always like to switch things up and make pieces work for me-in real life. For 40 hours a week, I’m dressed business casual for the office so it’s important for me to buy pieces that I can ultimately transition from day to night and/or weekday to weekend.

I picked a few pieces from various Target brands and challenged myself to make it work for me in real life without any festivals to go to. For my Festival Gone Decorated look, I picked a beautiful dress with both flower embroidery and crochet detailing that screams Woodstock to me. Wearing this dress, I honestly pictured myself with a make-shift sunflower crown skipping in a pasture somewhere, as opposed to my reality of the concrete jungle. Nonetheless, I paired it with whimsical sandals for a laid-back casual take on festival bohemian fashion.

For my Festival Gone Moody look, I went with black and colorful tans. I’m a huge fan of bodysuits and just had to add this off the shoulder ribbed version to my wardrobe. I initially picked up these gauze flare pants to pair them with, but while walking towards the cash register at Target, saw these whimsical shorts that I immediately knew would make an adorable pairing. While I can’t necessarily wear shorts to work, I can certainly appreciate how transitional these shorts could be, whether I wear flat sandals with them or stilettos like I did below.
