Fall is SO LATE in coming to Chicago! It’s like the 5th straight day of 90 degree temps and I wouldn’t be sad about that except I have a closet full of fall clothes calling my name! Happily, one of those outfits was a perfect transitional outfit for this temperamental weather! Today’s plus size OOTD features this Ellos Side Knot Dress. It’s light and comfortable, but still has that fall flavor I’m craving!
One of the trendiest looks this season involves one of my all time favorite articles of clothing: the kimono robe. Kimonos, robes and all sorts of pajama pairs have been spotted on all of the major runways and stars for the past few months. This Asos Curve Kimono in Stripe with Embroidered Back seemed like a great intro to the trend, so I nabbed it and paired it with my favorite distressed jeans and a simple white tee in today’s Outfit of the Day.
Sometimes you just want to throw something on and look epically chic, and OMG, have I found the perfect dress! This Geneva Dress from Universal Standard is so simple…but so unique! I’ve worn it in two colors — gray and now black!
This Geneva Dress perfectly represents what Universal Standard is all about — modern, elevated essentials. I absolutely adore the minimalist tone of their pieces. This dress is made out of the most divine cotton-spandex blend — it feels luxurious and high-quality and OMG — it’s pill-resistant (which is a huge plus for me, since I’m always toting around heavy bags that make my dresses pill at the hips!). And can we talk about the magical drape of this design? With the high crew-neck, capped sleeves and a asymmetrically curved hemline, this dress is seriously season-less and can be dressed up or down as needed.
Ever since plus size retailers started making more daring and figure-baring clothes, the plus size fashion community has embraced them with open arms. This year has truly been the year of the crop top for plus size fashionistas! Every major fashion event I attended this year had gorgeous plus size women baring their stomachs in crop tops and high-waisted skirts. And I was right there with them!
Dressing like a #GIRLBOSS is as easy as 1. Picking a dress in a bold color and a classic shape 2. Carrying a structured bag big enough to tote your spare shoes and 3. A great pair of shoes. Since my daily work wardrobe is pretty conservative, I try to invest in quality pieces that will last along time and I won’t be fidgeting with during meetings. That quest led me to discover Classiques Entier, which is one of Nordstrom’s house designed brands. These dresses are SO DREAMY and feel absolutely amazing when you slip them on. I don’t know what kind of magic their pattern makers are using, but fit of these dresses are incredible. I couldn’t resist this Classiques Entier Bateau Neck Italian Ponte Knit Sheath Dress in this beautiful, bright coral color when I saw it in the store. I already have the same one in black, but look…CORAL!!!
