I really like to wear black.  I love the way I feel in it and how easy it is.  As a curvy gal, I think there is a certain level of comfort and confidence that comes from wearing black.  It can help me camouflage those squishy bits I don’t completely love about my bod.  So needless to say, this look is a real departure from my usual palette.  With the cherry blossoms in bloom and Spring in my sights (and circled on my calendar), I have been playing with some lighter hued options in my closet.  Yes, I threw a dark grey tank on under my top, but I feel like it helps anchor a lighter breezier outfit.

This is another shop-my-closet outfit.  I’ve been doing well with making smart purchases and thinking about everything I buy, which honestly hasn’t been much.   My everyday attire is usually West + Wind tees and jeans, or leggings and flowy tunics, layered with lots of different cardis and scarves.  I’m continuing to edit, and I now  have more things I am looking to consign.  One thing I feel I’m missing from my wardrobe is that perfect, casual Spring jacket.  Let the hunt commence.   What are you shopping for this Spring season?

Lately, I have been coming out of my black and grey cocoon, and adding  some pops of colour to my life.  This look is a big pop!  When I first started to accessorize this dress, I was grabbing subtle and neutral items but I felt like this dress could handle more.  So instead I grabbed this big orange clutch (that is made of the most buttery soft leather) and some shiney gold things.  I even opted to add in one more bit of colour with this pretty pink matte lip colour by Lise Watier.  Sometimes a girl just needs to stand out.

This dress though!  It fits like a glove, is soft and stretchy, and very flattering on my curves.  I was recently introduced to this LA and London designed label, Voodoo Vixen.  They are known for their vintage inspired designs and definitely cater to a curvy gal (yes, they even come in plus sizes!)  This green hue is a red head’s dream come true.  It might just be the dress I’ll be wearing to celebrate my second Mother’s Day as a Momma.
