Hey Loves, I have a new youtube video on my channel! I've been asked about how & why I started my blog. So I answered that and more in the video. I think my answer might surprise you. Check it out. Be sure to like, comment & subscribe! xoxo Shay
So this is a super quick post. On Sunday I was meeting up with some friends from church to grab lunch and discuss some plans we have for the summer. I wanted to throw on something super casual but still polished. And I also wanted a reason to wear this amazing carry all bag I found at Forever 21. It matched perfectly with these slip on sneakers from Justfab. My simple weekend wear.
I have to say I'm beaming with such excitement as I write this. Yesterday at work a customer was trying on some clothes from Vince Camuto, Michael Kors, DKNYC & Ivanka Trump. When she cam out of the dressing room, I got instantly excited because she looked GREAT. I think what excited me the most was that she was a super confident curvy woman who chose not only chic pieces but very bold and she wore them so well. For me as a blogger, It does my heart good to see a young woman where great clothing, and where it well.
I'm quite excited for this announcement. I will be having my Sweat N' Style class again this year YYYYYAAAAAYYYY! My Sweat N' Style class is my celebration of my 4 years of blogging. And I'm so proud to announce that it is sponsored by Lane Bryant & their new Livi Active Line. You all know I have raved about the clothes from the Livi Active line. I have an amazing Zumba instructor coming in to give a good sweat. I've taken her class at the YMCA in Montclair, and she is absolutely phenomenal.
I'm sure you're wondering why it's called Sweat N' Style. It's simple, you all know I like a good workout outfit, so for Sweat N' Style, come in your best workout clothes & come sweat it out with me. You won't be disappointed. Admission is simply 2 non-perishable goods (canned goods or boxed pasta etc.) All of the donations will go to St. Mark's United Methodist Church Food Pantry. My mother is an active member of this ministry at church and I thought this would be something to help the ministry. Our food pantry operates every 2nd & 4th Saturday each month and feeds in the ballpark of 35-40 families within the Montclair community. It's going to be a GREAT time. Thank you to the people over at Lane Bryant for all their help. See you guys on the 11th. Register online here Sweat N' Style
I know on the calendar it says it's spring...but apparently mother nature has yet to get that memo. So it is still quite cold here in Jersey, and as you can see there is still snow on the ground. But very much like my last post, I'm trying to stay warm & cute all at the same time. Funny enough I keep waiting for the temperature to break just so I can rock a lot of things in my closet. But until then, I'll keep my winter clothes handy.
So I'm patiently waiting for this weather to break cause I'm tired of being cold & having to cover up. But at the very least I can be cute in this weather. So I wore something similar to this look to church a couple weeks ago. I originally wore it with my blue pencil skirt that I recently styled 3 different ways (blog post...youtube video). But I figured I can't have 3 post back to back wearing blue so I decided to switch it up. I'm wearing one of my favorite dresses as a skirt. You all know I love to do that. It's all a part of shopping my closet.
Yes indeed it is about that time yet again! It's prom season. You know every year I do a plus size prom dress round up for you guys. But this year will be a bit different, so I need you all to keep your eyes posted on the blog & my youtube channel. I have something awesome coming. Now on the purpose of this post. Last week I had the chance to go the promgirl.com prom dress fashion show. It was so girly and all me! From the pink runway, to the open bar, to the photo booth, to the candy bar. It was an all around experience. Check out some of the pics below. All pictures are property of Guest of a Guest Natalie Poette
