Dresses for the End of Spring: OOTD

Summer is almost here, but the whole April showers, May flowers still places us in Spring. While the temperature is steady warming up I have grown weary in wearing pants to work. This of course means more dresses!

This dress is from Dress Barn. I cannot recall the exact price, but it is somewhere between $50 and $69. This is a sleeveless sheath dress. The skirt is just straight; it is not fitted. The stripes are very flattering on a plus size figure. I love that this dress is versatile. You can wear it like I did with a sweater and cork wedges, with a black blazer and pumps, or sleeveless with flat sandals or flats; there are many options.

I got these on sale at Journeys for $20 (such a deal). Any cork wedges would pair up nicely with the colors within this dress. Most wedges would go nicely with this dress.

Enjoy the rest of Spring, Jewels!

Perfect for Any Occasion: OOTD

People say this to me all the time, “You’re a girly girl.” Why, yes I am. So with no doubt I love dresses! Can’t get enough of them. Today I am wearing a dress I got a few weeks ago from Forever 21+. This dress was $22.90. It looks very dull on the hanger but it’s adorable, sassy, and cute on.

The pattern on it assist with drawing the eyes away from my heavy bust, love that. It’s the perfect cut for heavy busted ladies. The attention of the waist is right at the waist line. It’s not cutting across your “natural” waist line, very figure flattering.

I also really like the feminine touches of the gathered sheer fabric that runs down the middle of the dress. It is also on top of the shoulders. Very chic! Because I’m at work, I am wearing a black cami under the dress.

I’m only at work today, so nothing extravagant. I only added earrings and big silver bracelets. I also wore my James Avery rings to add more silver.

This dress will work for any occasion: work, church, date, or just out in the town. Depending on how you accessorize determines how dressed up or down you’ll be. This dress would be cute with black, silver, metallic, or vibrant colored flats; pointy toe pumps, wedges, or flat sandals. Pops of color in the jewelry will also be cute.

I always wear some sort of jacket or sweater to work. I love this long blazer with the dress because it makes the dress appear even shorter, and I love showing off my legs! 😉

The shoes in this outfit are so amazing. One, they are extremely comfortable. Two, they are so hot and high! Three, they’re by one of my favorite shoe designers, Steve Madden. I got these at Macy’s for $109. These shoes really set off this outfit.

I can’t seem to get away from black and whites, one day I will. But for now, I’m basking in them.

Share your thoughts and ideas on today’s outfit. I’d love to hear from you.

Have a great day being FABULOUS, Jewels!
