Top - Calvin Klein via TJMaxx ($30)
Skirt - INC (thrifted for $2) (similar style here, $17)
Heels - Rock & Republic via Kohl's ($25) (similar style here, $30)
Clutch - TJMaxx ($40)
Earrings - Forever 21 ($3)
Sunnies - Foster Grant 

This is how I rock a crop top (but not really a crop top, because I tied a shirt into a knot). For a curvy gal like me this is the best way to sport the crop top trend for my body type. Some gals can totally rock a super cropped top, and it looks amaze. Just a little peek of skin is all I need.

I found this skirt at our local Salvation Army right after I had spotted this pink skirt on the H&M website. Of course my heart started to beat really fast as it always does when I find a piece of "gold" (as my husband calls it) at a thrift store. So I went on the purchase my "gold" and dreamt of all the ways I could style it on our way home. I love how this look turned out. Simple yet funky.

 I used my hair as an accessory in this look too. Ladies, always remember your hair matters when styling an outfit. I didn't want it to look too put together or girly so I forgo'd the curls and opted for a messy high bun. The statement earrings, subtle pink lip, and white pumps were the finishing touches to make the look complete. I may even throw this look back on for date night tonight!

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend!

Purse - Brahmin (gift)

I love how an all black and white ensemble looks so chic with minimal effort. Isn't that what we all want? To put no effort into getting dressed but still look amazing. Next time you wake up feeling like you should climb right back into bed (that's me everyday) reach for every black and white piece in your wardrobe. Throw them on, and you will look fabulous. I promise. Okay, maybe you need to put a little lipstick on, and comb your hair (or not, I don't judge), maybe throw it into a bun... Voila! Instant chic. So kids what did we learn today?...


I'm ready for a nap.

Dress - Old Navy ($15)
Belt - Thrifted ($3)
Flats - Old Navy ($10)
Necklace - Forever 21 (similar $9)
Hat - Old Navy ($15)
Purse - Brahmin (gift)
Sunnies - Foster Grant

I have to give props to my husband for this outfit. I had a completely different hat on (black) and he said "it looks like you are going to a funeral". He was totally right. I quickly switched out the "funeral hat" for this one. It's funny how one simple accessory swap can change the whole look and feel of an outfit. And it's also funny how husband's are sometimes right about our clothing choices when they have no desire to even try matching their own shirt to their pants. Thanks babe!

Ladies, if you don't already own a little black dress go get this one! It is so flattering, and perfect for curvy gals. Bonus, if you don't love your arms like I, this one offers the right amount of coverage while still being spring and summer appropriate. And right now it's only $15 at Old Navy! Hurry! Hurry!

Have a beautiful weekend friends!
