HOW TO LOOK PUT TOGETHER ALL THE TIME!! 3 TIPS FOR THE PLUS SIZE WOMAN

Hey Ya’ll!

Today, I am sharing the things that my mother imparted to me when I was very young and some other style tips I learned through experience. These are a few of my tips for looking put together no matter what size you wear. This post, however, will be coming from a Plus Size woman’s point of view. ;)

44927068_2008560502567238_4237613690003652608_o.jpg
  1. Wear Clothes That Fit! Too often I see women wearing pieces that are not meant for their body types in the name of ‘body positivity’. There are contexts for body positivity. It’s doesn’t always mean the same thing no matter where you go. Body positivity looks very different at the beach than it does in the board room. Just use common sense with things. Oh, and MORE SKIN ≠ MORE SEXY! Sometimes a bit of skin relays way more ‘sexy’ than you think. Stop believing the lies that this one garment will look good on every body type! Body positivity is so much more than ‘I can wear whatever I want’. Here are some of my favorite looks as of late.

2. Showcase Your Best Assets! For me, this looks like styling outfits around the parts of my body that I am the most confident about. My legs and my face/décolletage area are my favorite things to showcase. Bonus tip: You also want to think about balance here. If you’re showing décolletage/cleavage try not to wear a mini skirt, and vice versa. I like to pick a body part to show (legs or cleavage), so that I create balance and an air of class.

3. Wear Supportive Undergarments! I used to hate shape wear before they were modernized. Nowadays, its not very hard to find comfortable shape wear. You can go heavy-duty or you can go light. Here are some of my picks below.

Heavy Shapewear:

Very tough fabric; meant to be worn with fitted dresses, tops and jumpsuits. Keeps everything in place for ultimate confidence

Light Shapewear:

Light shapewear that you can wear with anything for a smoother appearance

Supportive Underwear:

the lightest; you can wear these everyday

Supportive Bra:

A thick band and more fabric on the sides gives you the support you need. Be sure to get sized at a store and then you can buy your preferred bra online. This is my pick for the best supportive bra.

I hope that these tips helped you out! Let me know what your thoughts are! Do you agree or disagree with some of the points I made? Share your thoughts below! :)

How to Style Corduroy!

Hello My Fellow Fashionistas!

I am so happy to be back with my fashion & lifestyle posts for 2019! At the moment, one of my babies is sick, so I am having to work early mornings. The house is quiet this morning, but I am fortunate to have the companionship of my mug of coffee!

I wanted to share some outfit inspo with you today! This is one of the ways I would style my latest find from Boohoo! This beautiful Cord Blazer is both stylish and on-trend. I must admit, I am little obsessed!

In 2019, you will see a lot of re-interpretations of ‘the suit’. This is my version of the modern day suit. I like to mix and match my ‘suit’ pieces. So, here you see a blazer paired with some black ponte style pants. Underneath, I kept things simple with a white v-neck top and I blended the top to this look by adding white mules. I was getting a little bit of a Western vibe from this look, so I wore this choker in a bolero style. To finish off the look, I decided to rock my favorite bag at the moment: my Fendi Mama Baguette. I think this look turned out pretty glam with an effortless vibe. So tell me, how would you style this blazer?

🍂 Fall 🍁 Look Book 2018 feat. PinkBlush!

Hey everyone!

Thanks for stopping by. Today, I have a fun Fall-inspired lookbook for you! 🤗 I love doing these types of posts because I get to play with the clothes in my closet. I love putting different pieces together and curating looks to inspire. Lately, I have been very inspired, myself, to try new things and step outside of my comfort zone. Get ready to see some things you may not have seen before on this site. I’m pushing the envelope in 2019! Now that I am feeling better in my clothes, it’s time to level up!

Today’s post was sponsored by PinkBlush. I have worked with PinkBlush before and I absolutely LOVE the quality of their clothes! What makes this post even cooler is that I have really come full circle! I wore their beautiful dresses when I was pregnant and here I am wearing their pieces post pregnancy! Please know that my opinions are always 100% honest.

PinkBlush has an awesome selection on their website. Whether you are #ttcing, #pregnant, or #postpartum, they have something for every woman. I hope you are inspired by the looks I put together featuring their pieces. I styled three different looks for three different types of women. Or, if you are like me, the same woman. haha

LOOK 1: THE LEOPARD DRESS TURNED DUSTER

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

If you’ve been goo-goo for leopard like I have you will love this dress. Leopard is like the ultimate camouflaging garment. It hides every lump and bump. Put the dress over a cami and dark bottoms like I have here to get the most out of your closet. Two looks for the price of one! The belt is just for fun here…you can do without it, too! I love this look with the baker boy hat, it turns the outfit into a playful one! You can go in so many different directions when it comes to the shoes. These clear heels were my first choice. ;)

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

This romper is just so sweet! I am very fond of floral prints and this one is so beautiful! Not to mention, this romper is so flattering on me. It’s a nice, thick fabric that has plenty of stretch. I used a belt to cinch the waist for more definition and for creative flair, but the belt is not necessary. Some chandelier earrings make this look more dressy. I can see this jumpsuit paired with a cute leather clutch for an evening dinner.

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

FullSizeRender.jpg

This dress gives me all the 70’s feels! This may very well be one of the most figure flattering dresses I have ever worn! I love the wrap detailing. It’s more of a tie dress with an elastic waist, but the wrap detailing gives you the look of a wrap dress with more security. I love the billowy sleeves and the ruffle-like detailing along the hem. This dress was so thoughtfully made. It brings out all the best parts of your figure! I’m 5’1, so I added some sky high chunky heels to complete the look and give me the illusion of longer legs. The sunnies made me feel super confident. Nothing like a dark pair of sunglasses to block out the sun and timidity.

Over-the-Knee Boots: 2 Ways!

Last weekend, cooler winds decided to grace us with their appearance here in the sunshine state. 🌞

It was the perfect day to push the envelope a bit and wear my over-the-knee boots! I had an event to go to and then after that plans with the family on Saturday. On Sunday, the plans were church and again time with each other. These are the two looks I came up with.

Look #1: Sienna, Leather, and Denim

This burnt orange shade has become one of my favorite shades, lately. I had not expected to gravitate towards this shade until it caught my eye at the store. The fitting room session confirmed my love for this shade! I couldn’t believe how well it complemented my skin tone.

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

Look #2: Mint and Pepper

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I had a sweet little helper while shooting this look. Seeing this face reflected back at me in these photos gives me the extra push I need to keep going! Everything I do now is for my babies!💕

FullSizeRender.jpg

Lately, I have been more encouraged than ever to ‘push the envelope’, so to speak. I want to push myself to operate at a higher level than I ever have before. What do I have to lose? I’m definitely not getting any younger and the only thing I have to risk is the fact that I spent time doing something that wasn’t the right fit for me. Expect to see me take more leaps of faith fashion-wise, but also know that I will be taking these same risks in my personal life.

How can I ever really experience a miracle from God if I don’t take a risk that requires complete, and utter blind faith? If I stay safe, what does that say to my Heavenly Father, who wants to give me more than I could ever ask or imagine?

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20, 21

My God is bigger than I can even accurately conceive. My mind is limited and finite, which means I tend to place those same limits on God, myself and my potential. Demonstrating faith, for me, will mean that God has to come through, or else there is nothing and no-one else who can. He has to be the only way in everything. Which means I have to turn my gaze to Him for step-by-step instructions everyday. Like, literally, “okay, God what task is a top priority today?” “What should I invest in this month?” “How do I communicate this message today?”

Spending time with God in prayer and reading my Word, in addition to paying attention to the Holy Spirit, means that the answers to my questions will be revealed. Sometimes the answer to a question comes from another person in conversation, or a tv program, or a radio commercial, or a YouTube video, etc. I am always paying attention when I am asking God to reveal something to me.

Anywho, I say all of that to say that as we close out this year I am going to end it with a bang! I am going to enter the New Year, God willing, living like I want to live throughout that new year. Pushing the envelope is going to be a mantra for me. “How did you push the envelope this week?”

Tartan and Denim for Fall + a Little Logomania!

Hey Ya’ll,

I’m back with some more fashion Inspo for you. Today, I am featuring this look, which combines some of my favorite elements: tartan/plaid, denim, clear heels (my current obsession), and some Fendi Zucca print (my other recent obsession). I’ve been having so much fun playing around with my style, and currently I’ve found a ‘pocket’, a stride, a ‘groove’, that feels amazing. It’s so much fun getting dressed now. I am pretty sure that a lot of it has to do with the fact that I am happier with my body today, than months ago. All of the pregnancy weight is gone and now I’ve got 11 more pounds until I reach my goal weight. I am also smaller (inch-wise) than pre-pregnancy. So, my clothes fit even better now. I’ve been taking my time and just focusing on a healthy lifestyle, as opposed to the numbers going down on my scale and I am pretty content at the moment. I have areas of my body that I need to address, but overall, I am proud of myself.

Business Casual Brunch

I wore this look the other day for a day out to take care of some business. This is my idea of appropriate attire for meeting a client or partner at a casual brunch. A blazer like this one always helps to make the look more polished. The vibrant jungle-inspired print keeps this look from getting too serious. Underneath the blazer, I wore a pair of ripped blue jeans and a simple white t-shirt. I topped the look off with a wife-brim fedora I scored at Aldo a few years ago. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

Because my accessories were so bold, I went with understated jewelry. Its always good to keep your look balanced.

My Casual Business Meeting Wardrobe Essentials

1. Blazer (Can be in a print, but be mindful of setting where meeting will be held. For example, neon colors would not come across well in a fine-dining establishment.)

2. Crisp Blouse (When in doubt, go with a pale, solid color)

3. Tailored pants or jeans (When in doubt, no distress on jeans)

4. Closed-toe Shoes (Solid color; heel or flat is okay)

5. Your handbag can make a statement for a bit of pop. Statement earrings OR statement necklace is okay, but not both, so as not to over do it.

Take all of my advice with a grain of salt. Use them as suggestions and wear what makes you feel your best!

My Secret to Feeling Polished...

FullSizeRender.jpg

Hey Ya'll!

I'm back with some fashion and faith inspo for you! The thing I love about getting dressed is that it instantly lifts my mood. I am a huge proponent for the notion that you should always look your best. You never know who God will put on your path, so it's best to leave your home looking the part everyday. Some days will call for workout gear, while others call for a dress shirt and pants. The important thing is how you put yourself together. The goal for me is that I am always put together and confident, regardless of what I have on.

What has happened to me in the past is that I always run into someone I know, or someone important when I look 'bummy'. I always kick myself after the encounter wishing I had put the extra effort into how I looked before leaving the house. I also wanted to remind you all that it is not about how much you spend on your clothing (although there are some exceptions to this thought), but how you pair items.

This affordable dress and pair of shoes was paired with a luxury handbag and bracelet.  When all the pieces come together you'd think I spent a whole lot on the look. (I'll do another post in the future about what you should spend more money versus less money on...)

Ultimately, though, you want to work on feeling good from the inside out. In my opinion, it's hard to work on your confidence without first having identity. For me, I find identity in who God says I am. On days when I feel horrible or less than confident, I reflect on what He says about me. 

His word says, "For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works my soul knows it very well". (Psalms 139; 13-14, ESV)

Pop!

There is nothing like a pop of color to add life to an otherwise monochrome look! I have been practicing a more minimalistic approach to my style lately, but my flamboyant inclinations will not be subdued! (lol) I just love color, ruffles, tassels, lace, and just flair in general! I decided to make a statement with this pair of yellow tassel earrings against my gray and black ensemble today. Do you think it worked? Details on my look below...

OUR DAUGHTER IS ONE YEAR OLD!

Last weekend we celebrated our daughter's 1st birthday  by having a pony party!! It was such a sweet time and will be engrained in our minds for years to come! I wanted to share it with you all here. :) 

 

WATCH THE VLOG! 

We took her cake smash photos a couple of days after her actual birthday. The party was held on the weekend before her b-day. Special thanks to my brother (K.E.R) for helping to capture all of the details we couldn't. 

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who traveled from near and far to celebrate Gisele's 1st year of life! It was so great seeing everyone! Thank you for all the wonderful gifts, too! 

Love,

Joe & Ker-Leen

SOFT POWER...

Hey Ya'll,

I am loving this pastel trend that is currently making it's rounds. Not only have I been seeing pastels all over the web, but the addition of suits in pastel hues has gotten me super excited! I wore this look for Easter Sunday. There is nothing like a power suit on a woman. But add a soft color to the mix and the effect is quite awe-inspiring! Although it wasn't ultimately what I had in mind ( I didn't have enough time to pull together what I wanted), it turned out really nice. Believe it or not, I scored both of these pieces on Amazon.

I have linked them in my Amazon shop for you!

I paired this 'suit' look with some pink drop earrings and a fuzzy pink bag for a bit of playfulness. The nude heels are simple and minimalistic, keeping all of the focus on the outfit.

VALENTINE'S DAY WISHLIST FULFILLED: PART 2!

IT'S DATE NIGHT!

 

Rosegal has done it again! This red number was the perfect choice for my recent date night. It was on my Valentine's Day wish list and I am so glad I chose this one. It's curvy girl friendly because the fabric isn't too thin. Be sure to wear some shape wear underneath and you're good to go. (This is the shape wear garment I wore underneath.) I also love that this is more a cold shoulder top, than an off the shoulder completely. The straps help to keep the dress in place, even if your bust is heavy. I did have to wear an awesome strapless bra underneath. I found this amazing strapless bra on Amazon! Thank me later.

This dress has a great amount of stretch in it, and it feels so soft against my skin. The ruffles at the bottom are a detail that adds to the femininity of this dress. I paired it with some fun earrings and some lucite  sandals to complete the look!  It is the perfect date night dress!

Hey ya'll!

I wanted to share a look I wore the other day, while out with the family! Some of the pieces were from my Rosegal wish list. It was a little experimental for me. It was a combination of several different ideas. It was edgy, it was soft, it was preppy, and  I got tons of compliments on it!

Travel Diary: New Orleans & Alabama

About one week ago I had to travel for work. I wanted to document some of the memories me and the family got a chance to make. So, if you're interested keep reading! :) 

So, while in New Orleans we visited the World War II Museum. It was a very interesting museum. I didn't think I'd enjoy it at first, and really just did it for Eilan and hubby, but I actually had a lot of fun. lol The museum really takes you into the lives of those living during WWII, and some of the things I enjoyed were the simulated train ride in the L.W. "Pete" Kent Train Car Experience, the AFRICAN AMERICAN EXPERIENCE in the ARSENAL OF DEMOCRACY, THE ROAD TO TOKYO, and walking through a remake of a kitchen during that time. Eilan especially loved the motor vehicles and the aircrafts that were in the US FREEDOM PAVILION: THE BOEING CENTER.

We ate at Bearcat Cafe a total of 3 times! I think that tells you what we thought about it! lol

Next, we visited the USS ALABAMA BATTLESHIP MEMORIAL PARK. This is something that was not planned. On the way back home, we spotted this from the expressway and decided to exit immediately. This museum totally fit our little family field trip and I am glad we stopped. If you are ever in the Spanish Fort area, please stop by...it's worth it. Total admission was $30 because we did not pay for the kids. I loved going aboard the USS ALABAMA BATTLESHIP, and going through the AIRCRAFT COLLECTION, specifically, seeing the Red Tail planes. This museum was a pleasant surprise and full of rich history. Not to mention the ship and aircrafts were beautiful.

It was pretty awesome creating memories like these for the kids. I love that they will be able to look at these photos and watch the videos made one day. 

Until Next Time,
