FEELING FIERCE

Over the weekend I was invited to a shopping event at Fashion To Figure, a trendy plus size retailer selling clothes sizes 14-24. I was shooketh! The selection was amazing and the fit, superb. I am always super apprehensive about shopping for fitted midi skirts and denim. But to my surprise I was completely blown away at how comfortable the pieces fit and how knowledgeable and helpful the staff was.

I picked up this trendy but classic animal print sweater that paired perfectly with the faux leather midi skirt. It’s a chic, classic look with a sexy edge, that can transition from the office to date night. Instead of wearing a traditional black shoe, I opted for a camel color peep toe heel and cat eye sunglasses that brings the outfit together. The purse is vintage that I have permanently borrowed from my mom (shhhh don’t tell her).

HOW TO ROCK PRINTS WHILE PLUS

Who said big girls can’t’ wear prints?! That’s one of the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard!

Prints are expressive artwork stitched onto clothing. They provide an instant glow up especially on days when you’re feeling less than cute.

Leopard is a go to for me! When I saw the modern approach to leopard in this dress, I knew it was one I had to have.

5 Tips To Rocking Prints While Plus:

  1. Choose smaller designs - Prints that are smaller in design create a more elevated and sophisticated look. They tend to make the body appear long and lean versus large bulky prints.

  2. Mix in a solid color - Two piece printed suits are all the rage right now. However, pairing with a solid tank or cami underneath makes the look appear more put together and classic.

  3. Wear vibrant colors - Yep big girls can wear color too! Vibrant florals and animal prints (my fave!) instantly makes you feel awake, refreshed and youthful.

  4. Pair prints with neutral accessories - Bring in neutrals with accessories. Neutral tones compliment without taking away from the focal point, which is the outfit.

  5. Have fun! - Fashion is Fun! Seriously, stop taking it so serious!

MY FAVORITE SUMMER JUMPSUIT
rhonda peterson

One of my favorite summer trends have been the blue and white stripe jumpsuit. Honestly anything blue and white stripes have been a favorite this season. It's a print that is classic, effortless and looks expensive! This casual jumpsuit, from Shein can be worn during the day with a cute flat or dressed up for night with heel or wedge. I paired mine with a white kimono and tan wedges from Torrid and a brown wicker purse (was a gift). Below I have linked this jumpsuit along with other styles that I love ALL UNDER 50!

FLORAL GALORE AT TORRID'S SPRING DRESS EVENT

I had the time of my life at Torrid's Spring Dress Event held in Atlanta Thursday night! The event was hosted by Mega Blogger, The Curvy Fashionista, Marie Denee at Atlanta's fab W Hotel in Midtown. We sipped on refreshing cocktails and munched on southern bites while previewing Torrid's new spring collection featuring floral galore! The whimsical patterns and bright colors immediately gave me crazy spring fever!

As someone who generally gravitates towards a more neutral palette, to my surprise, I saw a few pieces that I had to have. I died over this cropped Moto Jacket with the floral print on the back. It screams sweet and bad ass at the same time (an accurate description of me)! It's the perfect pop to any outfit whether casual or formal.

It was so refreshing to meet other bloggers and influencers based here in the South. I met girls from Alabama, South Carolina and right here in Atlanta! A few of them I already follow on Instagram and read their blogs. I finally got a chance to meet in person... So exciting!

You can never have enough simple black dresses. This lace dress that compliments any body type. Wedding season is approaching and a simple black dress is perfect for the occasion and can be worn multiple times.

I basically love anything blush! The detail on the back of this kimono makes it a stunna. It is simply perfect and comfortable. The fit runs a little oversize so size down. I'm wearing a 0/00X. 

Thank you Torrid! It was a night I will never forget!
