STYLE JOURNEY: ATTENTION TO DETAIL


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I know its been a minute since my last outfit post but it was just getting too hot and it is extremely time consuming trying to snap pictures when sweat is beading down your face.
I've been posting a lot of my looks on Instagram. Luckily this weekend was pretty breezy so I was able to fit a proper outfit post in.


 I got this dress from the H&M plus section a few weeks ago. It is an over-sized  dress that I thought was kind of cute. The lace detail is what drew me to it. 

I've been wearing it at least once a week since I bought it because it is very comfortable, especially after a hearty meal. I normally wear it without a belt but today I decided to add some shape to it with a black patent skinny belt.


I've also been wearing flats with this dress but decided to dress it up a little with a pair of lace peep toe heels from Betsey Johnson. 

This weekend was filled with activities for me and my son so I had to utilize  my work bag to hold snacks, wipes, my flats, and a toy for the train ride.

This is a really cute dress from the H&M plus collection and its simple but the interest is all in the lace detailing. Checkout the exposed zipper in the back. Cute, right?!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Also follow me on Instagram under Stylishcurves to see more of my everyday looks.

What I'm Wearing
Dress: H&M +
Shoes: Betsey Johnson
Earrings: H&M
Watch: Michael Kors
Bracelet: Loft
Bag: Aldo
Sunnies: H&M

You look beautiful, but may I ask how old your son is? I have a two-year old and a four-year old and I struggle to find clothes that are both stylish and practical for chasing them around. And how do you manage those heels with a little one?!

@Caroline

My son is 3 years old. I have always been a heels kind of girl because I find my feet hurt more in flats. I know crazy! HOwever, I do assess the activity or outing me and my son go on. If its parks, museums or anything that requires a lot of walking, I wear flats or wedges. If we are going somewhere that we get to sit more than stand then I wear heels. When I wear heels, I make sure that I have a pair of flats in my bag just in case.

As a mom, it's important for me to maintain a stylish appearance for my self esteem. I've seen alot of moms stop caring about their personal appearance or just wear frumpy calls. I try to make sure that I dress the way I did before I became a mom. At the end of the day, I do what feels comfortable for me.

Alissa, I think that's great. I'm really interested in how you do it. I am trying to concentrate on my appearance more now that my kids aren't babies, but I find it difficult. This summer I tried to get out of my comfort zone a bit and buy things I normally wouldn't wear (white capris, brightly colored pants, maxi dresses) and then I lacked the follow-through to actually wear them very much. This season, I'm taking a different approach. I plan to stick mainly with my basic look--jeans and cute tops--and add some style with accessories and outerwear. I bought a pair of cool boots at Lane Bryant and have my eye on a great-looking trench coat. A happy medium between style and practicality is what I'm looking for.

Sorry for the long-winded response, but, my point is, I need help! And would love any pointers you would be willing to give. :-)
