STYLE JOURNEY: NEON AND NEUTRALS



Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Spring is all about color for me. From bright colored shoes to neon separates. When the weekend rolls around the last thing I want to be doing is spending extra time getting dress. I want to grab and go. I guess that's why I have so many dresses. This weekend was no exception for a grab and go look The weather was wonderful.





 Since it's so easy to just throw on a dress, I think we sometimes underestimate the power of separates. A cute skirt teamed up with a classic button up is a simple outfit that packs a lot of punch. I wanted a dressy casual look this weekend so I went for a neon orange skirt, a silk blend cream blouse, and my fave pair of Vince Camuto shoes. Shoes for me make an outfit. I believe shoes can transform an outfit. I often build my outfits around shoes.


Neon and neutrals are a trendy combination that I'm digging for spring. You've seen me already indulge in the combination for an office look. Right now I'm such a fan of the bandage skirt because that sucker holds you in. For accessories, I rocked a pair of green and gold chandelier earrings, my straw bag I got from my mom last year, a long multi chain pearl necklace, and my usual gold cuff and bracelets.

I was ready for the weekend.

Top: LYS
Skirt: Faith21 Plus
