Bombers Away

Ok, your girl is back from her week off to attend all the events from NYFW. First thing that was on my list was Curvy Con. For Day 1, I wanted to keep it casually cute. So you know what that means- rocking sporty looking pieces. 

Gwynnie Bee

The first day was all about the Dia & Co fashion show. With the weather being quintessentially fall, I went with this great bomber that I borrowed from Gwynnie Bee. The Rachel Rachel Roy maxi bomber is simply amazing. I love a good bomber, but this one takes it up a notch, not only because of the print and varsity inspired accents, but with it being a maxi, it stands apart from other's out there. I'm rocking out in a 2X and it fits like a glove. If you have yet to try Gwynnie Bee you need to start now. You can try this very jacket for free by using this code.

With the print of the jacket I thought it would be cool to pair it with this sporty tee shirt dress from Eloquii. The prints play well together since they are the same color base. The easiest way to mix prints is to go with a similar color palette. Black and white is always a great color combo that you can easily pair different prints with. The floral aesthetic of the bomber plays well with the stripes in the dress. A good tee shirt dress makes dressing easy. Just throw it on, and boom you are chic and you are ready to walk out of the door. I went with the 18 so that it wouldn't be too tight. It's made from a nice medium weight, stretchy material, so this is great to wear anytime. 

For accessories, I gave these earrings from Aldo a go. I have been loving their accessories and these are a great pair to have. They come in five colors, and for $15 you can stock up and not feel the least bit guilty. Get ready for tons of compliments, because these earrings are a conversation starter. I ended my look with these great booties from Eloquii. You take the classic bootie and add fun pearl accents, and you have the Harper. She is slightly wider than you average shoe which is great for these feet. I have a wide foot, so any time I can find a great shoe with adequate support and width they must be shared.

What do you think of my Day 1 look? Do you love the sporty vibes or is it the print mixing that you enjoy? Let me know in the comments, but stay tuned because I have pictures from Dia & Co Fashion Show. Muah lovers.

Girl Genius

March is Woman's month, and in celebration of such, I wanted to wear something to remind us all that we are amazing, awesome, and pure geniuses. This look right here has everything I love- moto jacket, cool graphic tee, and jeans. I haven't posted anything from Rachel Roy Curvy in a while, but when I saw the new collection in Macy's last week, I just had to have it all. 

Let's talk about this tank. I love RRR Curvy tee's because they are super soft and fit amazing. The Girl Genius tank is a great piece that you can wear all year long. It's lightweight material makes it easy to wear under other items without tons of bulk, and alone it's your classic statement making graphic tee.

I was in need of a new pair of distressed boyfriend jeans (my favorite pair bit the dust due to chub rub, RIP), and for the longest, I could not find a pair that was a lighter shade of blue. I have enough dark denim, but I needed a lighter color. The latest fit that I have been seeing around a lot of brands in denim is called the Girlfriend fit, which has a more tapered leg. My old boyfriend jeans were more of a straight leg, so I do love that these have more of a skinny leg. This is my first pair of jeans from Rachel Rachel Roy Curvy (I tried some capris which were cool), and I must say they fit great. I'm wearing a size 16, which is my normal size in jeans. I did like that I had the option to cuff the jeans (like I did today), but I don't necessarily have to. 

Moto's are an obsession of mine. Owning your classic black is a staple, but I love that there are so many color and now print options in plus. The print is very 60's flower child print. I also love that it is a darker floral. With the official start of Spring only being a week away (yay), most florals tend to be on the pastel side, but I love how this season a lot of the prints use bold, darker color. The jacket has ponte stretch, so it definitely has the room to layer if need be. The stretch panels are great if you have bigger arms because you don't have to size up to accommodate your arms. I am wearing a size 2X which will fit anyone that wears 18-20 in jackets. 

Even though March is Women's Month, the achievements of women all over the world are evident everyday. Besides those whose actions have the changed the world for the better, the everyday woman is a hero as well. My mom ensured that I had all the tools needed to not survive in this world, but thrive. She raised me to be an amazing person, and without her guidance, honesty (brutal honesty), and tricks on how to rock a bold lip like no other, I would not be the woman I am today. So for all my Girl Geniuses out there, do not let anyone tell you are not worthy. Muah!!!
