Denim on Denim

denim on denim outfit
Hey Loves,
So this is yet another weekend look I just threw together but actually liked. I've been really wanting to do a denim on denim look for the longest, but really didn't have the right jeans to pull it together. All my skinny jeans just didn't cut it. So while I was laying around the house on Sunday, I decided to play a little dress up. It's not the most creative, but I like it.

Keep it Casual

plus size boyfriend jeans
Hey Loves,

I figured I would throw this post up. I was kind of feeling myself when I shot this outfit. Really my hair was the inspiration for this look. I had the pleasure of walking in the 1st Brooklyn Night Out Fashion Show and the hairstylist gave me this AMAZING hair style. She slayed this look in like 20 minutes. So before I took it down, I had to shoot an outfit with it. 

Jacket: 5 Preview| Jeans: Lane Bryant| Tank Top: Lord & Taylor| Shoes: Payless| Necklace: Fashion to Figure

I can say this was something different for me. Ya'll know I'm used to something that is a bit more form fitting. Typically I don't like pairing jackets like this with such loose fitting jeans. But I think it was something that would force me out of my comfort zone. And I'm pretty damn proud of myself.

These jeans are soooooo comfortable. I got them from Lane Bryant, if you remember I wore these to the Chalk it Up event I hosted for Lane Bryant. I did get them 2 sizes bigger so they can be baggy & feel like real 'boyfriend jeans'.

 Ok look at my hair! I actually really didn't want to take it down. But I had to. I am so in love with it. I love the attention to detail. I usually don't style my hair (cause I'm lazy) but it's always nice to have someone that knows how to work with locs really style it. She took great care of my hair, and did it in a timely manner. The extra colors of hair, went with the theme of the fashion show. Talk about inspiration!

Shop the look!




Until next time loves!

A Day at the Races

Hey Loves,


If you saw my last outfit post you know that I spent last Saturday at Saratoga Race Course. This was my 1st time going to races and I just couldn't wait to see what it is all about. It was an experience. It was much bigger than I expected and there was a lot to keep you busy throughout the day. It was crowded. it was different for me, but fun.

Chic in my Big Hat

Fashion to figure dress, 5 preview mint green laptop bag, Payless Shoes
Hey Loves,

I can't tell you how excited I was to post this look. This past Saturday I got a chance to spend a wonderful few hours up at Saratoga Race Course. When I got the invite to go, I automatically knew that meant 2 things; Chic & a Big Hat. If you've ever kept up with the Kentucky Derby, you know exactly what kind of look to pull together. I played around with a couple different dresses but none really tickled my fancy. But I happened to be walking around in Fashion to Figure when I saw this white skater dress, and I knew it was perfection.

But anyhow, if you follow me on instagram, you know that I had the awesome pleasure of hosting one of Lane Bryant's Chalk it Up event's on the 8th. So naturally I had to be decked out in Lane Bryant gear. I knew that I wanted something laid back and casual. Ya'll know my 1st thought was to wear a dress, but I forced myself out of wearing one. YAY Me! lol
