It’s cold out there.

Hello there everyone!! I hope you all are bundling up and keeping warm. Do know that although it’s necessary to pile on the layers that doesn’t mean you can’t layer with style. If I’ve learned to do so, you can to. Here’s a recent example of my winter style.

Now everyday basics are the key for any style and for the most part I collect mine from Old Navy. Their items are wearable at any size and are appropriate for any occasion. I recently purchased this v-neck, striped sweater dress in navy. Currently it is on clearance and they are offering and additional amount off clearance items. But you have to hurry because the offer and dress won’t last.

I paired the dress with a basic pair of navy blue leggings that I purchased from Forever 21. I have several pairs of these leggings, that are offered in an assortment of colors, which I find convenient for my everyday style.

To complete the look, I zipped up these Unisa Toshio boots I got from DSW. These brown boots have been a complete lifesaver for me this winter. They’ve kept me warm and they go with everything, and yes I pair them with black ensembles, I’ll discuss that in another post. The stretch material is an added benefit for my wide calves as well.

Now if you like you can add flair to this look with a wide belt around the waist or a simple necklace. I’m currently working on my accessories skills and when I get it together I’ll share some ideas with you.

So that’s it for now. I’ll see you next time. Deuces!!

One more time.

Greetings everyone!! Ok, I know…I’m late. I’m waaay late. But it’s cool, right? Well let’s just get back into it before the calendar changes…well for my timezone at least.

So, before I get into a regular pattern for this blog, I want to discuss 2 more subjects that I’ll be covering from time to time. Now I can’t really call myself a fashionista because I consider them experts and I’m far from that. But I do appreciate a great outfit either from myself or others, and I love to play with fashion. I was told sometime ago that I should work on creating my signature style because apparently I know a thing or two and I think this blog will help me do so. Well, I do take pride in the combinations that create given my size. But really it’s not that difficult now because there are more choices for the full figured lady.

So as I’ve said, I like to play around with my fashion and plan on sharing it with you all. Now please enjoy some of my best looks from the past.

Also, nothing makes me feel more relaxed than a good mani/pedi. I love this whole gel movement and I’ve just learned that I can possibly have nail art with gel polish. So just like the other subjects I’ve mentioned, I’ll be sharing my fancy nails with you all as well. Now unfortunately, I do not know the names or brands of the colors that I have in this picture. So at this time I’ll refer to the pink polish as #75 and the red as #77. Sorry but at least I know which number to request when I go to the salon. But I will work on providing the full details in the future.
