Tell Me About It Stud

I was a musical junkie as a child. My Grammy and I would watch all the ones that came on our local channel (back then my mom refused to get cable). One that always stood out to me was Grease. What I loved the most about Grease after the music was the clothes. They were fun, retro and just soo cool. I loved the end when Sandy got her cool girl on with a moto jacket.

Her look was a little bit of the inspo for this look. As you may or may no know, I am moto obsessed. I have a section in my coat closet dedicated to them. I am always on the hunt for ones that are in fun colors or have embellishments. One jacket that I was seeing on the runways was an off the shoulder version. First thoughts was like this is hella badass and I need it in my life. Now the challenge, to find this in plus. At first it was a no go, then I got an email from Ashley Stewart and behold they made one!!! When I was out in Houston, I visited the store and picked me up one.

Now the first thoughts are is this a practical buy....not really, but I will be wearing it especially when Spring decides to pop up. I love showing off my shoulders and this piece gives me the best of both worlds. Showing skin and still getting a chance to rock a moto. I am wearing a size 20 and I had enough room to move around and potentially layering it. I think it would cool with a button up underneath. 

When it comes to pants, my go to these days are the Kady pant from Eloquii. They come in myriad of prints and colors, and they have petites. Now these are an old pair and no longer are available, but I wanted to show how even though these pants are a couple of years old, animal print will never go out of style. 

Cool jacket- check. Fun pants- check, only thing left is a hot pair of shades and some black pumps. So lovers what do you think? Would I be the 2018 version of Sandy? LOL!!!

Plaid About You

I remember when I hated suits. I felt they were just a contraption made to have you look boring. Suits were something drab that I would wear when I need to go on an interview. Remember those days when suits in plus size were just ill fitting and only in black, beige or the occasional charcoal? I must say that plus size suits have come a loooooonnnnnngggggg way. Once something that I would just avoid in stores, now it is something that I not only want to wear, but I look amazing in. 

I love plaid, it a definitely a mainstay in my wardrobe, so when I saw this plaid suit from Eloquii, I was immediately drawn to it. I have tons of blazers, but this double breasted version is super chic. For an added little surprise the pockets have ruffle details and on the sleeves. I am wearing a size 20 in the blazer, and it had plenty of room in the arms. My biggest concern with jackets is having enough room along the back to ensure that I don't feel restricted. This was a perfect fit for me. All that was needed was to push up the sleeves and I was ready to go.

The pants are Eloquii's Kady pants (which I love), and the length on these were perfect. When it comes to my dress pants, I favor ones that hit at my ankle or slightly below. I wear a 16 in the Kady, and these had plenty of room in the thigh without feeling tight. What I also love about the Kady is that I can wear these high up on my waist so that I can wear a cute crop top like the one here and not feel overly exposed. 

With these being separates, I can easily wear the blazer alone with one of my favorite dresses, and pair the pants with a tee and sneakers. Not only are plaid suits big on the runway this season, but it's always a versatile piece that will never go out of style. Since I was running around attending events that day, I went with my slides from Aldo that I love so much. They pair well with the suit and just make the entire look effortlessly chic and comfortable. If you are in the market for a great statement flat mule, check out these from Aldo. 

What do you think lovers? Would you rock a plaid suit just because? Share in the comments. Muah!!!
