Hey curvy girls all over the world,
When it comes to personal style sometimes our brains are trained to always reach for the same looks. I for one can attest to that. Lately, I have been thinking of new ways to get the most out of my wardrobe. As a serious magazine reader, I have such an admiration for Lucky magazine's desire to get their readers to think outside their personal style box when it comes to clothes. In the pages of Lucky mag you will see them pair a military jacket with a shift dress or a pencil skirt just to give you new ideas on how to be a little more creative with your wardrobe. One of my personal favorite bloggers Big Beautyful Mess engaged in a challenge where she recreated 30 looks from a feature in Lucky magazine where they take a few pieces and mix and match them to give you a months worth of outfits.

You've all seen this ikat print skirt before, remember I wore it with a white blazer. Well, since then I haven't worn this skirt that much and decided to dust it off. I wanted to give it a totally different look. To think outside my personal style box I remixed the skirt with this utility vest that I scored for only $14.99 at New York & Company. I don't shop there much unless it's for accessories or when they're having their 50% off everything sale, but, this vest was well worth the price. I added a wide width belt to define my waist due to the bulkiness of the vest. Overall, I was pleased with the outcome and vow to think outside the box a little more when it comes to evolving my personal style.
What I'm wearing
Skirt- Loft
Vest- NY&C
Belt- NY&C
Shoes- Kelsi Dagger
Earrings- Forever21

very cute. and i'm already seeing how you can transition this outfit for fall. i religiously read lucky and i really like the styled many ways section. but truth be told, sometimes i just don't have the time to be creative so i go to my stand-bys. thanks for reminding me to think outside the box.
