90s Nostalgia

Do any of you remember living in overalls? Because I do. Channeling my inner Rachel Green, I HAD to order these clearance raspberry pink overalls from Eloquii.

I’ve been working with this awesome photographer on these looks I’m bringing you over the next couple of months. This is one of my favorites because if you know anything about me, you know how much I love anything eclectic. I also believe that raspberry pink and black/white stripes belong together. They do. I’m convinced.

I’m a 90s girl, so this pair of overalls spoke directly to my heart. It’s a “Viola” cut by Eloquii which means its for plus size ladies like me with bigger hips. The material also had some stretch which made it super cozy and comfortable. I even surprised myself by liking the fact that the material was like a velvet (which I know is on trend right now, but not my favorite trend). These velvet overalls though were a HUGE win in my book.

The top was from target.  Who doesn’t LOVE a good cold shoulder? It’s a nice basic that you can use as a “layering” piece. I like to tuck it into tulle skirts or obviously overalls. It’s the perfect amount of skin to show off, plus the flutter sleeve adds a cool detail to this otherwise basic top. Super fetch! :p

We took these photos downtown the beautiful city of Gilbert. The weather was pretty perfect mostly because we got up at sunrise to shoot these. As you can imagine, coffee was a must afterwards. I met up my sister and hung out with my beautiful niece for some much needed family time. My niece is only 7 weeks old, and I’m already absolutely obsessed with her (which I guess is not all that surprising).

Well, I hope you all love this look as much as I do because I would literally wear this outfit on the daily!

Realness and Tulle

Hello my beautiful readers,

I missed you. I’m sorry it took so long for me to post this post, but it has– and I need to tell you why. Mental health is real ya’ll, and I struggle with mine. I go through waves of having consistent panic attacks that hold me captive and leave me paralyzed from being a functional human being. I try to combat them with anxiety medicine, but I have not found the right formula. It’s really hard for me to talk about all this because I think it’s an ugly side of myself. I hate feeling weak and out of control. I have a hard time embracing it and not letting it consume me, but I am working on it. It’s just hard when people around us all are shouting that we need to toughen up or get some confidence because it has nothing to do with that– and honestly when I put myself down like that, it only affects me more.

And then when I think about it, and how whiny I sound talking about it, it puts me in an even bigger spiral. I can tell myself to get over it because people have it way worse, but that’s just not how it works for me. Mental illness is not the same for everyone either. What works for me, may not work for you, and vice versa.

I am just so thankful to have a husband that is patient and understanding because mental illness can be a lonely journey because there is still such a stigma associated with it.

Well, thats enough about that. I just wanted to share a piece of me with you all today. Thanks for listening.

Today, I put together a super basic outfit for you all. I just wanted to show you something I wear when I am on the go. Since I live in Phoenix, it is hot as balls right now. Summer is here, and I want to cry. I hate the heat, but I’m still in the kitchen. :pN9

This dress is SOOO light weight and breathable. I am going to be living in it the next couple months I swear.

Plus, it is just so flattering. It accentuates my high waist which I love because it gives my body some shape.

N7

Plus the keyhole detail in the front and back is super cute.

N6

I paired it with some slip on sandals from Torrid as well… which I will say, are not the most comfortable, but they are very easy. Slip them on, then you are out the door!

N5

Everyone needs a good slip on sandal for summer. It’s not like you can walk barefooted to your mailbox during this hot hot heat.

Even though I still do, and then I burn my little piggies. But once you commit to it and your feet are halfway to your destination… there’s really no turning back. Haha

I got a little side-tracked. Haha, I’m giving this dress a big thumbs up. What do you think? 🙂

Nude Blush

Somethings you should know about me: I will always be attracted to the color pink, especially if it’s a pink on the “nuder” side. I also will always be in love with tulle. I think we should put tulle on everything. :p

Today, I am bringing you a Blush colored dress with a tulle skirt… Because I had to. :p I paired it with this beautiful denim jacket that I am digging so hard. I used to not be much of a denim person, but then something just switched in my brain, and now I cannot get enough of it. It brings me back to my 90s overall days. Nostalgia FTW.

I am currently subscribed to Trunk Club and Dia & Co because I LOVE getting things in the mail. I just get so excited by being surprised with clothes at my house. Plus, I obviously have a shopping problem…

Trunk Club and Dia & Co are both styling services. They send you a box (however often you decide) with various articles of clothing and accessories depending on your preferences. Dia sends you 5 pieces and Trunk Club sends you as many as your stylist decides (the last box I got was 10 pieces).

I got this dress in a Dia & Co Box, and the denim jacket in a Trunk Club box.

Dia & Co takes some time finding a stylist that really gets your style. It took me 5 boxes for them to really perfect it for me, and you do not get the same stylist every time unless you request it. Once I got a stylist that I thought understood what I was looking for, I latched on. I ask for her every time. She really does an amazing job for me.

After the first couple of boxes missed the mark for me, it got a little discouraging. But I was just so excited by the idea of Dia & Co, and what a cool company I thought it was, I kept giving it a chance. And I am so glad I did!

5

My biggest tip is once you find a stylist that you like, request them to style you from then on. Don’t forget to always give them detailed feedback to because they do listen to it.

6

In comparison, Trunk Club, you always get the same stylist. I do love that about them, and you personally chat with them– so they really get to know you. They also send you a preview of the box they are going to send you before they send it (so you can deny items you hate– if there are any).

7

My biggest problem with Trunk Club is that it isn’t specialized in plus size clothing, so I do not feel like I get as much variety. It’s also very pricey. The last box I got sent everything was over $100…

9

You can ask for “cheaper” items, but their prices for plus size just tend to be a little more pricey. I do have to say though, I LOVE my stylist. She is an absolute sweetheart.

I think I made a good choice keeping both of these items.
