Pretty in Pink

I’m back!

It was a much longer than anticipated return to OOTD posts but my work trip was intense & then I got insanely sick. But I’m back! And so is SPRING!!!!

I was so happy to get in and see my stylist for an update of my colour. We had a bit of fun with a messy/curly style while I was there too.

Today I’m rockin this adorable, super short Forever 21+ collared dress. I tried it previously with leggings and jeggings but what it was really waiting for was Spring weather and tights!

We Love Colors are everything to me in the Spring and Fall. I have so many colours and honestly always think I need more. This particular shade is Orchid Pink. The adorable saddle shoes were a total steal from ModCloth.

This is my ‘Hi, I’m feeling cute’ look.

Prelude to Romance

I was ranting to my GirlGang last night about how it’s not easy to be my size in this society – you have to tackles opinions (including your own) from every angle. But I also was preaching that I’m at a point in my life where I need to embrace what feels good, wear what I love and stop feeling less than.

Valentines Day is approaching and while it should be a time we fill with love and romance, some of us can find ourselves filled more with dread. Why? Because we want more than anything to feel beautiful, desired and sexy! I don’t need to tell you that the market is rather saturated with images of women scantily clad but not enough of them look like me, or I imagine you. I thought I’d combat that by hunting down some fabulous full sized lingerie options.

Probably the frontrunner in Plus Size Lingerie is Hips & Curves. From sexy…

Feeling sexy yet? Even researching and writing this has me feeling a lot more hopeful and my waller feeling lighter! Also, remember that feeling sexy never relies on the approval of others. Buy something you love, wear it for yourself!
