Look book




Fall is my favorite time of year.  Cooler weather means that we can dress warmer here in Hawaii and embrace the colder months.  The thing about Hawaii  though is that while it cools down, it can still be warm and humid.  I wanted to provide you with a kind of universal Fall lookbook and style diary that offered you some warm weather cozy while still having something for a hot Hawaii day.   Today I’m doing this post and video in collaboration with a fellow beauty and lifestyle blogger from Hawaii – Kathryn (Kath) from The Fabzilla.  Make sure you head on over and show this gorgeous beauty some mad love too.

I hope you enjoyed this little style diary.  Remember – as I always say, style really is personal preference.  For me, I love to be comfortable and if the season allows – I love cozy.  You can catch me in flip flops most time of the year unless it’s cold and then a pair of boots will always suffice.  Since I injured my ankle badly – I’m unable to use a lot of my traditional footwear that I would pair with my outfits like flats or ballet slippers because my ankle is swollen and they won’t fit over my brace.  But, nonetheless, I dress in what makes me comfortable.  To me, just like makeup – style is a form of self expression.

I hope you are all enjoying your cooler weather.  Don’t forget to head on over to check out Kath’s sweet looks – you’ll love her, classy style and a beauty.

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!

What I’m using:

Striped High Low Maxi Dress: Forever 21 Plus
Denim Vest: Old Navy
Watch: Invicta
Flip flops – flats: Guess

Makeup of the Day:

L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara and Milani Brilliant Shine lip gloss in Bare Naked

Happy Valentine’s Day Love Bugs.  I really wanted to get this post up much sooner, but I had an unexpected medical procedure that took place last week that had me sitting in bed for the last few days and I wasn’t able to share this sooner.  Valentine’s Day is such a great Holiday to have fun and dress up with.  Since I have a casual sense of style, I wanted to share three outfits with you that showed off a little bit of classy and flirty and a little casual at the same time.  Check out the video and the photos below.

I hope you liked my video – please comment, like & subscribe.  Photos of the looks as well as details of the items are listed below.

Sexy, Timeless & Playful

The first outfit is a simple black and red cowl neck style body con dress.  Let me just start off by saying that I am so happy to be styling this dress for all of you this year because it is a personal accomplishment for me.  This dress was so tight last year, I couldn’t even pull it over my body.  Now – it is still fitted, but loose enough for me to wear comfortable.  While it hugs every single curve of my body – it adds to a bit of sex appeal without exposing extra skin and I love the kind of “Audrey Hepburn” class that comes with the style of dress.

  • Black / Red Cowl Neck Body Con Dress – unknown retailer (gift from my Mommy)
  • Black Strappy Wedged Sandals – Sole Society
  • Gold Infinity Heart Necklace – Shoplately
  • Black Rose Hair Accessory – HoneyXO (handmade by me)
  • Watch – Invicta

If you are a plus sized girl and want to rock out a body con dress, find one you feel comfortable in that will give the illusion of slimming.  This dress has the punch of red in the middle of the dress and splits into the black which helps to bring in and taper in my waist, giving me a slimmer figure.  I pulled my hair into a messy side bun and added a black rose hair accessory.  This gives the look an old charm with an updated look.

Valentine's Day Plus Sized Outfit

Mommy in Love

For my next outfit I wanted to choose something that was wearable for all ages, but especially age appropriate for someone in their 30s like me.  This outfit still has a sexy appeal to it because it hugs the curves in all the right ways, but for the most part – I am covered and not revealing much skin.  For this outfit I wanted to have texture and punches of red to make a bold statement that this outfit was for Valentine’s Day, but I wanted to be able to still use this outfit for other purposes.  Of course, nothing says statement like leopard heels so I figured that would be an awesome contrast in print as well.  As a mommy of 3 active boys, this outfit also allows me to still be active but look sexy and put together.

  • Sweater/Top from Jeans Warehouse Hawaii (comes with long necklace accessory)
  • Black Pencil Skirt from Forever 21
  • Gold Infinity Necklace from Shoplately
  • Bow Chain bracelet from Forever 21
  • Leopard Pumps from Fancy Steps

Since my hair is naturally curly and I wanted it to look a little different… I brushed out my hair a bit so that my curls were not so tight and left my hair down.  This outfit elongates my body and makes me appear much taller than I really am.  I think it adds to the sexy. 😉

Casual Love

As a busy mommy – I’m constantly on the hunt for something comfortable and easy to move in, regardless of the occasion.  This outfit was one I talked about in my recent Valentine’s Day Makeup Look – Bombshell Love.  I even decided I would rock out my wig so you had an idea as to how the entire look pulled together.  Maxi skirts are my best friend and this outfit is simple, fast to throw together and most importantly… comfortable.

  • Black slouchy blouse from Jeans Warehouse Hawaii
  • Black Maxi Skirt from Jeans Warehouse Hawaii
  • Leopard Pumps from Fancy Steps
  • Gold Bow Bling bracelet from Forever 21
  • Statement Necklace from Opaque Lion on Shoplately
  • Large Black Rose Hair Clip from HoneyXO (handmade by me)
  • Wig from Shoplately
  • Watch from Invicta
  • Tahitian Pearl gold ring from Mana Pearls

I always think wearing your hair down and natural with a maxi skirt is fun, flirty and casual.

I know these looks are simple, but again – I am a simple person.  My husband will be working on Valentine’s Day and I’ll be home with my children, so I’m thinking I’ll be rocking out a maxi skirt and top with my natural curly hair pulled in a loose messy bun.  It’s casual but still put together and sweet.
