Mascara, Coffee, and Metallics

There are things that this lady needs to function. One is coffee. If you follow me on Snapchat (styleoversize) you see me heading to my favorite spot for my Venti Soy White Mocha. The next, a little lippie and mascara. I am not a makeup artist, but I feel like I have mastered a good natural day look and mascara is soo needed. Therefore when I saw this tee on sale at Old Navy, I grabbed it and checked out. For those that are new to the blog, "Hi, my name is Jaye and I am graphic tee addict." 

I found this great tee while I was walking around Old Navy. I haven't been frequenting stores as much as I used to these days (the ease of online shopping), but while I was out on a much needed break from work I went in and checked out what was new. I found a couple of other goodies in Old Navy but I made sure I bought this tee. There is no such thing as having too many tee's in my opinion. This tee was only $14 and I am wearing an XL. Their shirts are roomy enough to accommodate the twins while still looking semi fitted. Graphic tee's tell a little bit of my personality- funny and Definitely check them out cause they have a lot of options.

Okay, so can we talk about this metallic bomber??? Bombers have been my weakness, and when I saw this on Simply Be's website I had to have it. The amount of bombers I own might be a little high, but how many sites/stores have a metallic plus....and it looks great against this skin??? Yeah, so she had to come home to me. I am wearing a 20 because I wanted room for layering so I can get so many uses from this jacket. I will say this before and I will say it again, if you have a great jacket in your wardrobe, you are set. I will be wearing this jacket A LOT!! The brassy color pairs with almost everything, and it's just so cute. 

So what does one wear with a metallic bomber, and a graphic be honest- anything. I wanted to girly up the look so I went with the Eloquii's metallic pleated skirt that came out this past season. This skirt may have dropped in the Winter, but it is definitely an item you can wear all year round. For a rather mild day, you can go sans tights and wear some cute flats and a button up. In chillier weather a nice cashmere turtleneck sweater with some heeled booties, and in the summer time with a cute off the shoulder top and wedges. There are so many ways you can wear this, the skirt is definitely something you should add to your closet. 

Statement sunnies like these upped the cool factor of my entire look. You don't have to spend tons of money on a pair of cool looking sunglasses. These are only $20 from Eloquii!!! Currently they are sold out, but there is a waitlist so that means they are definitely restocking them. The detailing of these makes them look way more expensive than their price tag. 

My footwear of choice was my Adidas Superstar. I love wearing girly items like a pleated skirt with sneakers. Dressier items like the skirt feel a little bit more casual when you wear them with sneakers, or a cool pair of oxfords.

The old rules of not wearing something casual with a dressy item has been voided. Nowadays, it's all about mixing high/low, nighttime in the daytime, and boy meets girl. Wear what you like, and you will never go wrong. Now for me, it's time to get that coffee...enjoy lovers!!!

Crazy Sexy Cool

Sexy these days for me is not always about wearing the highest of heels and the tightest dress. It's about wearing things that make you feel good which gives you that extra pep in your step. I will always be a tomboy at heart, but what I notice about my style is that I can mix feminine with masculine and make it look effortless. It's something about the juxtaposition of the two that speaks to me. 

Hey, how you doing? G is for Glamour and Griggs.

Lane Bryant's collaborations over the years has brought us some great fashion. So of course the latest between Glamour Magazine and Lane Bryant is no different. We are getting magazine-runway-streetstyle pieces in plus size and your girl is happy. The latest in their collaboration is all about athleisure. Thought to be a passing phase, athleisure has been going strong and shows no signs of slowing down. It went from just wearing your gym clothes as clothes to becoming a lifestyle. Sneakers that we wore growing up are back with a vengeance and we all can benefit from a break from our heels and still look good.

Yes, you rang??? 

This collection features pieces that you can mix and match to play off the fun vibe. My favorite piece from the collection is the Lena wide leg pant. As a big girl, we are told to stay away from white, and stripes. These are definitely not on the so called 'approved flattering' clothes for plus size women and I love it!!. I have always loved the thought of wearing a wider leg pant with a good pair of sneakers to give them more of a laid back vibe, but up until now I could not find the right wide leg pant. The wide leg on these allows me at 5'5" to wear them with sneakers or shoes depending on my mood. There is something about this stripe that just makes these pants super cool. They are lined, so I suggest sizing up to find your right fit (especially for my fellow #teamthickthighs). I am wearing a size 18 which still keeps them on the fitted side but in no way tight. 


I also picked up the G hoodie. I know that the G stands for Glamour but my last name starts with G so in my mind this jacket was made for me. Before my love of bombers, hoodies were my go to. They are great for layering. I wear mines under denim jackets, under vests, so many things. Back in the day hoodies massively oversized so wearing them with dresses and skirts were a no no. 

Now hoodies are long, short, cropped, fitted completely oversized, and just all around a piece that you can wear with everything. I definitely see myself wearing this hoodie to work with a button up, jeans, some cute flats with the sleeves rolled up. 

Becky and I enjoying this wonderful afternoon.

This season there has been a lot of great options in tops. You have cut-outs, off the shoulder, one shoulder, flare sleeves, lace, you name it, there is top like it. With the laid back vibe of the pants, I figured a cute cutout top can give me a little edge. Cut outs placed on the shoulders are a great option for those who want to show a little skin, but are not ready for an off the shoulder look, but to be honest, cutouts were a gateway to the off the shoulder tops for me. Another thing that I love about this top is the choker. Chokers have hit the big time, but I love the fact that this is an all in one item. You don't have to worry about additional accessories because you are all set when you wear this top. It's loose shape at the bottom is tummy friendly and with this length you can wear it with a nice pair of leggings, or tuck it into a full skirt. 

Stripes in my pants calls for stripes in my kicks, so my shoe of choice is the oh so classic Adidas Superstar. I love these sneakers. There is something about a fresh pair of sneakers on a gorgeous day in NYC. It just changes how you walk, how you feel. Lane Bryant is having a 40% off sale, so definitely check it out and get your Spring wardrobe ready. Spring is almost here (30 days and counting!!!), and I can't wait to share all the goodies that I have been waiting to break out. So lovers, what is your one item you are the most excited to wear this Spring???
