The Kate Middington Skirt

I am so in love with this skirt from Society+. The cut would be gorgeous on a variety of different body types. The length is perfect. It hits about mid-calf on me and I’m about 5’7″. I love that the pleats give the skirt a little bit of volume without it being too overwhelming. 

The quality is tremendous. There is a side zipper and pockets! The skirt comes in a variety of different colors, so you can pick the one that best fits your style. 

I paired the skirt with a black bodysuit from JCPenney and black pointed toe flats from Lane Bryant. I love that this look has a slightly vintage feel with a modern flair of the criss cross bodysuit. It’s appropriate for the office but you could also dress it down with a chambray shirt or a crop top. This is definitely a versatile piece that would be a great addition to anyone’s closet.

A huge thank you to Society+ for sending me this piece to review on my blog for you guys!


All Sparkly for NYE

One thing I have always felt strongly about is wearing something sparkly on New Years Eve. Whether it’s just a detail on the shirt I’m wearing or just a piece of jewelry, I try to incorporate into my look each year. I learned yesterday that my sister-in-law’s family had a tradition on NYE, where all the ladies would sit down and show each other what parts of their outfit were sparkly. I think that’s so adorable! 

As soon as I saw this skirt, I was hooked! It is from Torrid and I’m wearing it in a size 3x. They were having a sale when I bought, so I paid $28 and it was absolutely worth it. The gold/copper color is beautiful. The way it is made really suits my Figure because of the wise waistband and the flair at the bottom. Also, if you’re worried about glitter straying from the skirt, the fallout for me was minimal. It looks like the sparkly material was sort of woven into the fabric, so it won’t shed too much. I did get a little on my hands from putting it on but that didn’t bother me much. Of course, I have to mention it has pockets! We all know how much I love pockets of a dress or skirt!

I paired it with a black off the shoulder shirt with lace detail. I got the shirt from G Stage Love for $12 I believe. This is also in a 3x because their clothes run a little on the smaller side. The lace of the shirt is just gorgeous. You can dress it up or down depending on the occasion.

I also wore a new pair of black leggings from Torrid. These were also on sale for $15. They have a thick waistband and really hold you in. These are their premium leggings, which are the first pair I’ve owned from Torrid and I’d highly recommend them!

I Wore A Tutu For Christmas

That’s right! Of all the wardrobe options I had, I chose to wear a tutu for Christday Day! Why is a 30 year old wearing a tutu, you may ask? Well, if you have to ask that question, you haven’t tried one on! There’s something so delicate but fun about wearing an all tulle skirt. If you haven’t put one on in your adult life, please do yourself a favor and try it. It’s an indescribable feeling of youth, fun, flirtiness, and chic-ness!

The tulle black skirt is from Society+, one of my new favorite companies. If you haven’t heard of them, I can’t say enough good things about them! They are a great company that promotes body positivity by using real diverse women as models, they have an honest size guarantee, and they love giving back to their customers with lots of giveaways and some good sales. The tulle skirt retails for $80, but I got it on sale during their Black Friday event. It was 40% off and I had a gift card on top of it! It’s well made with a very stretchy waist band. I ordered it in a size 22/24 and it fits me so well!

I paired the skirt with a gray cropped sweater by Ashley Nell Tipton from the Boutique+ line at JCPenney. It is so comfortable and I got so many compliments on the shoulder detail. The pearls and rhinestone shoulder is a show stopper! It really added a little glitz to my holiday look. This is a 2x and I believe the original price was $39. I got it on sale for about $27.

Just to finish off the look, I wore some black opaque tights from WalMart and my black booties from Shoe Department. Overall, I felt so good in this look and could not wait to share it with all of you! The most important part of fashion is to feel good in your clothes and remember to have fun!
