It’s no secret that when it comes to fashion, anything I wear or use must not only be functional but also comfortable.  Sometimes I feel like my laid back lifestyle has me too lax and often it can be a bit basic, but I love taking basics and turning them into something fun and fashionable.  I’m born and raised in Hawaii so most of my life you could find me in a bikini or bathing suit with board shorts and a surf board, but now that I’ve changed things up a bit, I try to add a little more flair to what has become comfortable.  While what I wear may be simple, consisting of mostly basics to allow for me to change up from time to time – I love to add handbags that will give me a sense of style and freedom at the same time.  Accessories can make or break a look easily so here is what I do to take a basic outfit and jazz it up a bit.  Here’s my plus size outfit featuring Miche Bag to compliment the look.

Check out my quick outfit video below or click here to watch directly on YouTube.

First, I start off with a basic look.  Today I have decided that I wanted to use one of my favorite black strapless dresses but have a little cover up for a fun and casual look.

  • Black Empire Waist Jersey Strapless Dress – Old Navy
  • Denim Vest with Cut sleeves – Forever21 Plus

Since Flip flops are pretty much the go to for most looks here in Hawaii, I decided that would be a great choice not only for comfort but also for style.  I decided to go with a platform/wedge style flip flop to add a dressier flare to the look

  • Black Flip Flops – Guess Sabell Platform Flip flops

No outfit is complete without some accessories and for me I wanted it to be simple, basic but still add a little flare. If you have been following this blog or my YouTube channel a while, then you know I’m pretty simple and usually will have the same type of necklace or watch for my daily style.  Today I switched up my watch and included something that would be fun and add a little bit of swagger to my look.

Last but not least – it’s all about the handbags.  It’s no secret that I’m a huge handbag fanatic… my husband can attest to that (teehee), and I’m always looking for the perfect bag to help accommodate all of my personal and mommy needs as well as be functional and stylish.  About 5 years ago I was introduced to Michebags and immediately fell in love with not only the quality – but the styles and the price.  Let’s just say that I love these bags so much that I own two different sizes and over 12 shells… ssshhh… don’t tell the pocket book. lol

Miche bag’s concept is easy… You purchase a base bag (in my case, this is the Prima base bag) and then you purchase a shell to go with it.  The idea was developed by a women who wanted to be able to change out her bag easily without having to pull all the contents of her bag out.  You simply pull your base bag out of your shell and put it in a new one and you are good to go.

  • Miche Prima Shell in Carmen – a brown caramel shade bag with gold accents
  • Miche Prima Shell in Maria – a gorgeous cream and print bag with gold accents

Each bag is so easy to get in and out of to switch out you can easily go from day to night and it takes just seconds.  I am wearing my Miche bags pictured with the regular black handles and gold chain links to add to the gold accent.  These bags are not only functional, they are affordable.

Miche Prima Base bag: $29.99

Miche Prima Shell: Range between $40 and $100

Miche Accessories: Range between $9 and $20

If this bag is too large for you – do not worry,this is the largest size Miche carries but there are a variety of sizes available from their Petite, Classic and Demi.  Also, Miche offers different colors in their handles as well as their chains and Carabiners so you have endless options to switch up your style and preference.  Each strap, handle, carabiner and hardware is interchangeable with any of the shells and the shells are seasonal so you can expect to see new styles rolled out several times a year.  Fashionable and on-trend, Miche is definitely a great selection for those who love handbags and want to keep their look fresh.

Now – just because I have a really relaxed style, doesn’t mean you can’t jazz up a similar look with say a pair of strappy heels or wedges or even a larger necklace for a statement piece.  What I love about style is that it is just like makeup and it’s all about the individual and their preferences.

Didn’t I say in my last outfit post that I’m totally crushin’ on Old Navy’s graphic tees and graphic print tops?  Yes, I believe I did… but just in case you missed it… you can check out that post here – lol.  I have been especially loving the tanks because they are comfortable to wear in this humid Hawaii weather.  Considering we are expecting a hurricane this weekend, even with the rain that has graced my island, it’s still super hot and humid so keeping cool with these tanks have been essential.  Anyway, on to my plus size outfit of the day.

It was an Old Navy kind of day today and when I say this… I mean from head to toe.  As much as I try to dress up, it’s too hot and this busy mommy has to be able to do everything my daily duties consist of but still try to keep my comfy level high.

Isn’t the print on this Tank super oober cute?  I absolutely love it and we all know how I am when it comes to “love” and “true love” stuff… I know, I know… I’m just a hopeless romantic at heart.

A few review of these products will be posted on my blog in the next few days – so keep an eye for that.

If you haven’t noticed already – I’m not wearing any makeup today.  Besides some lip balm and a light coat of mascara… this is my every day.  My little dress up session took me to the twins’ school for a monthly parent meeting with the rest of the moms and dads so it was all about being comfy so I could sit on the little tiny chairs in the classroom 🙂  Wishing you all a fabulous day and awesome week.

“Forever & Always!”

Oh Fall… where are you?  Maui is super hot and humid and man I would love some cool chilled air my way, but it just hasn’t been so lately.  It was so warm today that a tank and shorts was on my outfit list… less is better, right? (did I just say that? lol)  So here is my Plus Sized Outfit of the Day…

OOTD Old Navy

You know in Hawaii we rock out flip flops like they are about to be discontinued, lol.  So here is my super quick outfit for going out and tackling Costco with my three sons.  Overall I have to say it was a fun day… we picked up my lil sis and spent a few hours with her while we tackled some errands… overall, I consider it a WIN.

  • Top – Love is Forever Graphic Tank from Old Navy
  • Bottoms – Denim Bermudas/Cut offs from Torrid
  • Flip flops – Guess
  • Watch – Invicta
  • Sunglasses – Maui Jim
  • Necklace – And I always get a lot of questions about my Teddy Bear Necklace.  Sadly I don’t know where it is from, my husband bought me this pendant before we had children, over 10 years ago.  I have heard that some jewelers carry it – but I have not seen it at local stores.

For my makeup today… I really was aiming to bring Fall into my life, even if it meant I had to do my makeup like Fall was in full swing. lol I also have had my Tamanna palette now for a couple of weeks and each opportunity I have I try to play with new shade combinations and had a few in mind I wanted to pair today. Since I only really wear makeup once a week, I was sure gonna make sure to get some makeup lovin’ in.

FOTD Tamanna Palette

I’ve been working on a review for the Tamanna palette, and hope to have it up soon since I see that it is still available.  It drives me nuts when things are limited edition and I have to run out and get them because I just have to have it, but that also means that by the time I have had it long enough for me to actually state my thoughts on the product… I don’t get around to it.  Ooh – and on another note… have you seen my hair?  I know these pictures don’t show it well, but I went dark again… I’m actually really diggin’ it.

This plus sized girl was all about comfort and cool today.  I have been loving the Old Navy Tees and Tanks that they have been releasing lately and I’m all about a graphic tee if it means I can be comfortable.  I love those types of shirts for underneath my slouchy sweaters especially… now if Fall can just make its way here so I can start using them. lol  Wishing you all a wonderful Aloha Friday and a kick ass weekend.

Smooches.

Summer time has got me running around spending quality time with my family so I haven’t had the opportunity to post any Plus Sized Fashion and Style looks for quite a while.  I am hoping I can kick it in high gear and get it together because I know that I’ve been slacking in that department.

I can’t believe my eldest son goes back to school in less than a month and the twins start preschool on the same day.  This summer is flying by – I swear I need to get into a time machine and go back in time so I can live in the past for a little while. lol  But nonetheless, my family and I are enjoying the time we have.  The outfit I’m wearing in this week’s Fashion post is simple and I’m bummed to say that I forgot my good camera and only had my cell phone to take pictures – sorry about that.  I hope you enjoy the outfit and the video is just 30 seconds or so long – so you can check that out too.  Have a wonderful week!
