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.

Each and every Season holds a special place in my heart, but Spring is that time of year when I tend to do clothes shopping the most and I’m always looking forward to rocking out cool and comfortable threads.  While my style remains fairly the same each year, I like to add a few things to change it up a bit.  For me… Spring includes a few staples in my wardrobe – Maxi Dresses & Skirts, empire waist knee length dresses (or shorter), denim bermudas, tanks and a few key sandals and accessories to complete a look.

I’ve included a few of my favorite styles that you may see pretty often in my wardrobe.  Who owns over 10 maxi dresses and 8 pairs of denim bermudas?  This lady here!  Living in Hawaii means that Spring and Summer months can bring extreme heat so I like to be comfortable and dress that way specifically.  While many think that style is about the clothes you wear… I believe that Style is all about personality and what makes you feel comfortable and confident.  Being a surfer girl most my life, my Spring and Summer months growing up meant that I was found in a pair of Surf/board shorts and a bikini or rash guard – now that I’m grown up (lol), I like to add my own little flair and spin on it all.  Check out some of the selections I have here so you can get an idea of what I rock during the Spring months.

  • Of course – a Coach bag on my arm is an absolute plus and in most cases a MUST HAVE.  Coach has been a favorite designer brand of mine for years and I just can’t seem to get out of it and move on to other brands.   That goes for accessories that they offer as well.  I adore Coach sunnies (shades) as well as their cute high top sneaks… super adorable and definitely awesome for Spring or Summer.
  • Tank tops, Ribbed Tanks and Graphic tees are an absolute staple in my wardrobe any time of the year – but definitely during the Spring & Summer Season.  While you can catch me in denim shorts or a pair of jeans year round, I tend to rock out a pair of Bermuda shorts during this season more than any other.
  • Maxi dresses and skirts – yes I’m bringing it up AGAIN.  If you have been following my fashion posts the last couple of years, you’ll see that you can find these in several different colors in my wardrobe.  Being a plus sized girl – I will rock out anything that makes me feel confident and comfortable and these are my favorites.
  • Sun dresses, spring dresses… just about any type of dress belongs in my closet.  I have super thick thighs and calves and I’ve been pretty lucky to find dresses that don’t really accentuate the largeness of my calves even if they are two inches above my knee.  They add an extra girly and flirty feel and paired with a cute pair of wedges or heels, they are showstopping.
  • I wouldn’t be “Honey” if I wasn’t caught rocking out a pair of flip flops.  Any brand that is comfortable is a favorite.  Havaianas have been a favorite of mine for years, as well as Old Navy Flip Flops, Roxy and Steve Madden.  If I’m going to be using flip flops (slippas – as we call it in Hawai’i) – they need to be comfortable, otherwise, why bother.  And of course, a great pair of wedges, slip-on sandals or flats is an important addition to my wardrobe.
  • Like I mentioned above… at the end of the day – Rock out what you feel comfortable in.   Spring (and Summer) is all about soaking up the sunlight (don’t forget that SPF) and enjoying the flowers and the breeze.  What ever you decide, make sure it makes you feel confident and awesome!
