Hey everyone! How is your Monday going? Are you preparing your outfits and selfies to send me for the blog birthday party? I’m looking forward to seeing you so don’t forget to send them to my email (email@example.com) when you’re done. If you have no idea what I’m talking about see here. Don’t leave me hanging!
Anyway, I still haven’t done any shopping. I’ve been casually looking, I just haven’t found anything yet that I’m willing to take a chance on. I’m on the hunt for the perfect shirt that is the perfect length, fabric, weight, color and pattern. I’m not sure what that is, but I want a shirt that I can pull out of the closet without thinking what it will go with because it works every time. The elusive unicorn!
This blazer you’ve seen before (here) and it’s from last year but this one, this one and this one look similar. It’s by Calvin Klein and I’ve found that brand’s size 16 fits me really well. I’ve tried this kind of long blazer before by them and the collar doesn’t work well with a large bust in a blazer-type jacket. It’s kind of closed near the neckline but pops open across the bust — not a good look!
I’m wearing my Little Black Dress from Chico’s that you’ve seen before (here) that is soooo versatile. It’s sold out now but I’ll keep my eyes out for another because they make getting dressed so easy and really, we all should have one!
And you can see I’m wearing the magic belt with the dress. As you know, if you’re a regular reader, this belt creates an illusion of a waist, something us apple shapes do not posess. If you’re curious, you can see my video about the magic belt and how and why it works here.
I’m wearing all my spring colors now to chase away winter, including this cute purse that works great with black and gray so when I’m not feeling like wearing the spring colors I can at least have a bit of color with my purse. This would have been a perfect outfit to tie a printed scarf to the handle of the purse to add some more color and pattern but I forgot! Ugh, I need to get that into my routine!
That’s it for clothing today and know that I am eagerly awaiting your RSVP photos for the blog birthday party! I will keep bugging you so you don’t forget like I do!
