LOFT Just Launched Plus!

When I heard that LOFT carried plus size, I was ecstatic. I’ve always loved basic and work wear from LOFT, but as my womanly figure evolved, it didn’t quote work for me anymore. Hearing that they now cared straight and plus sizes, I knew I’d be adding them back to my regularly scheduled shopping experience.

Like this Windowpane Flounce Dress, that’s perfect for a day out of the office taking on client meetings. Paired with a basic cashmere sweater for warmth and opaque tights … it gives me the confidence I need to close a few deals. *Side note* This dress is currently 60 percent off!

Or this Faux Fur Lined Vest, which makes running weekend errands a breeze, literally! I felt so cozy in such a comfortable look. Paired with indigo jeans and cute booties, you’re all the south western vibes you’ll need this season!

Stay tuned for a full recap of the LOFT Plus Size Launch Party I hosted in October!

The Coordinate Set: A Low-Maintenence Style Staple

Guess who’s still working her summer closet for a few more weeks? This gal! It’s still sunny and 80 degrees in ATL and I plan to take full advantage of the nice weather. One thing that I love about this time of year is that it’s not too hot to get dressed. You know, the breeze is blowing, and all is right around this time of year. It’s not too muggy for makeup, and not too humid for cute clothes that may have a few extra layers… like my favorite coordinate set from Forever21.

Pause. I totally swagger-jacked my friend and blogger-sis Trina from Baby Shopaholic, as she technically had this fun number first, but I couldn’t resist grabbing it to see how it looked on a plus-body. Let’s just say, this coord set definitely flatters straight and plus size!

What I love about this get-up is the lightweight material. Although it’s long sleeve, it’s still light enough to wear during warmer months. The oriental flair also makes it perfect for this time of year.

It’s high waist, which is great if you’re a hippy-itty-bitty-waist girl like me And the pants have elastic versus a zipper, which is my personal preference for comfort. I paired the look with a black crop top because who doesn’t love to show skin? But this can easily be worn with a basic cami or even a screened tee could be cute!

Honestly, the best part is this set is less than 50 bucks and comes in an array of sizes from straight to plus. So everyone wins! I’ll share the links below.

Darling Retro Chic Summer

Y’all, this retro chic black tropical midi dress from Torrid is my entire mood for summer. I’m not a big fan of hot summer days, but these fun sundresses from Torrid have made me think otherwise. The colors, the texture, the shape all screams for a celebration. This skater dress in particular really digs into my personal style because it’s line with tulle for volume; but don’t worry, there’s a slip in between the tulle layers so you don’t get itchy and hot!

Paired with bright colored sandals, and fun sunglasses … mood set!

Part Two of My Eloquii x Draper James Obsession

If you don’t know already, I pretty much feel like this Draper James collection for Eloquii was made for me! All of the beautiful patterns and shapes literally speaks to my life on so many levels. I’m not surprised that Reese Witherspoon spearheaded this collection herself, after all she is the ultimate southern belle.

There was one more look that I couldn’t resist sharing, it was this one-of-a-kind midi skirt (linked here) and this adorably fun striped shirt (linked here). While most would shy away from mixing patterns, leave it to me to break the rules honey! I found that this fun skirt and this stripe button up worked seamlessly together.

Aside from how fun and flirty this look is, I really want to chat about something you can’t necessarily “see,” and that’s THE QUALITY of the clothes. I’ve been shopping Eloquii for a while now; in fact, it’s a fave amongst some of my friends. Literally 99% of my boss/mentor’s closet is Eloquii (Hi Toya!) What I find that makes us all returned customers is the craftsmanship in Eloquii’s clothes. You literally get what you pay for, in a good way. The quality of the materials are made to endure long-term wear, and the extra details from the company takes your personal shopping experience to the next level. I’m usually leaping for joy every time an Eloquii package arrives at my door.

How To Dress Sexy And Not Trashy

“If you got it, flaunt it, boy I know you want it …”

People always ask why I’m so quick to throw on a ‘freakum dress’. The truth is, I just love the way my body looks in them!

I’ve learned over the years there’s a huge difference in dressing sexy versus dressing trashy. I’m talking Jada Pinkett-Smith, Tracee Ellis-Ross, grown-woman-sexy. I have a few rules I apply when dressing sexy, I wanted to share them with you so that you can implement them into your closet.

Find Your Confidence. Nothing’s more annoying than an insecure girl in a tight dress. So if you’re going to wear that sexy little number, you better OWN IT honey. That means quit tugging at your skirt rising, or pulling up your low cleavage, because you clearly bought the wrong size if you have to keep adjusting it. Go confidently in your look. The sexy outfit is only half of the statement, the way you look and feel in it is what truly matters.

Find Balance. My rule of thumb in dressing sexy and not trashy is to choose a focus. Everything should not hang out! If you’re going to wear your midsection out, then consider covering your thighs with pants or a midi dress/skirt. If you’re thighs or legs will be out, cover up your top. You tend to look a little ‘Snooky-Jersey-Shore’ trashy if you wear your stomach, thighs, and cleavage out at the same time. It can be overwhelming to say the least. So find a focus and balance everything you wear around that.

*Style Tip – If you’re a pear shape like me with wide hips and a small waist, focus on your small waist. When I’m feeling sexy I always go for a crop top. I focus on my waist being exposed and I usually cover my thighs for balance.

Accessorize. This may be my second favorite way to dress up my sex appeal. Accessories take you a long way. Those elongated earrings always makes me feel like a hottie; especially if I’m wearing a basic dress. A sultry lip can easy dress up your look. And let’s not forget, the shoes always makes the outfit. My current fave is a strappy block heel. The straps scream sex appeal, while the block heel finds a balance so that I don’t look like I’m trying too hard.

Bottom line, find your groove that works for you and rock with it. For me, I always go for effortless sex-appeal. I never want to look like I’ve planned my outfit out days in advance.

Share your sexy-tips with me, let’s chat about it on my Instagram or Facebook Page.
