This dress makes me smile, ya'll!

The color is uber vibrant and gives me so much joy! It's crazy how a bright colored dress can literally transform your entire mood.

This gorgeous dress is from Torrid! I have been wearing this brand for years!!! Torrid is a brand whose high quality plus size clothing speak for itself. They were so gracious to send me this beautiful piece (along with others you see in later posts) that I am obsessed with. As you have seen in my last few posts, black was (and normally is) my color of choice. However, the bright sunshine, warm temps (It was 90 degrees when we shot these pics) and blue sky makes me want to wear color. The color yellow is beautiful and versatile on any skin tone, which I love!  As a tall plus girl, maxi dresses are essential to my wardrobe. It's covered up but still shows just enough skin for a little sex appeal. This dress is very lightweight, comfortable and breathable. In fact, you will see this baby on rotation all summer 18. I am wearing a size 2. If you follow me on Instagram , you will notice I have no shame in wearing a piece I love over and over again. 

I styled the dress with oversize round sunnies, a red lip, a brown wicker bag with bamboo straps and black strap sandals. The sandals are also from Torrid.

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.

Classic and trendy in polka dots paired with a red lip, cat eye sunnies and this moto jacket... It's a total retro chic vibe.

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!

Denim on denim is always a chic vibe! It's a super cool relaxed look that I wear quite often. Peep my Instagram.

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!
