I'm not going to lie, I have worn this outfit like 7 times already. It is so effortless and makes people think you know what you're doing when you're just being comfortable!

In my years of wearing clothing with more intention, I have noticed that people compliment you when you make no effort with your outfit. I don't go out seeking compliments with my outfits, don't get me wrong, but, overproduction of an outfit just usually ends up with people eyeing you, trying to decipher what you're wearing, which is a weird experience, especially as someone who is categorized as plus size.

Another day, another pink and yellow outfit. I said it yesterday, but, it's a combination I didn't expect liking as much as I truly do!

A little pink, a whole lotta yellow. Berets are not summer hats, admittedly, but I don't have a pink hat (yet) and this outfit begs for a hat.

Pink and yellow is a combination that I never thought I'd go for, but, here I am, wearing it pretty regularly, and I am not at all upset at it! It's a refreshing, warm weather inspired combination that makes me so happy.

Coral and yellow, who would have thought it would be such a good look?

The color combo of the coral in the dress worn as a top, the dark yellow of the skirt, and the pink in the belt and sandals makes a colorful summery outfit and screams sunshine! Too bad the weather is dreary and is spitting rain out!

Is it too hot for a jacket? Absolutely, but it is a look.

In an attempt to wear this tiered blouse as varied as possible, I layered it over my denim skirt and added a denim jacket in a different hue for a nod to the Canadian Tuxedo.

T G I F. I know I am not the only one who shares that sentiment this week. This week has been a roller coaster and I am immeasurably thankful it's Friday.

This dress is not a wrap dress, as much as it looks like it is! It's a faux wrap, and I never thought I'd say this, but, I prefer a genuine wrap dress over a faux one. I don't have the the chest to fill out this dress, and I'll have to tack this dress shut in a few places to avoid flashing people. I love yellow and brown together, so I styled this dress with  wide brown belt and coordinated with a brown panama hat and brown d'orsay flats. 

Happy Friday!

Blue and yellow do technically go together, even if they do scream college football. I like this steel-y blue off the shoulder number under this yellow midi skirt. It's a sweet summer outfit that's not too dramatic for Wednesday, but it is also not a particularly an expected one, and that is what I live for.

Summer has arrived and so have the high temperatures and the blazing sun. This skirt is not a skirt, it's a scarf tied and belted to look like a skirt, which is both super functional by extending the life of a seasonal item like a scarf, and it's lightweight, meaning it breathes and I'm not sweaty. Win-win, as far as I am concerned.

Brown is a summer color. I think it's an all season color, actually, like pink and yellow are for me, but, I have to officially declare it as so. Brown is such a great grounding color for an outfit and it's also wonderful as the main color! I styled this scarf skirt with an off the shoulder white blouse and added a straw hat and basic brown slide sandals to keep it light and keep the brown as the highlight. Brown is a summer color.

If there was ever a time to dress like a beach ball, it's when it's hot and humid out. 

I live in a landlocked state with no real ocean viewing beach. The Great Lakes are like, 3 hours north, but, there is no salt water or hazy silhouettes of cruise ships in the distance. You take the beach for granted when it's your backyard, but without it, you realize how much you really miss it.

I wore a very similar outfit around this time last year, and I really liked it, so it's back for the new meteorological season! I like the way this wrap dress (which was my first one ever!) fits my top, but I hate the length of it, so adding a skirt is a necessary move for me. I think the blue denim and the pink dress work well together, and it makes for a comfy casual Sunday outfit.

Happy Sunday!

There is something so magical about the color pink for me. I know there is a history to the color, but, when it comes to me, I used to hate it, and now, it's definitely in my wardrobe as a dominant color.

I know this dress looks like it, but I promise, I'm not going all prairie-chic on you all. I saw this dress teased a few weeks ago by LoveShackFancy and I knew that I had to have it because it looks like the ultimate casual summer dress. 

I'm only being slightly sarcastic when I say it's casual, because, in general, it is very comfy and not all uncomfortable. I define casual as something that is comfortable and wearable for day-to-day activities, and I mean, that's what this is.

I realized that when I started appropriating my work clothes into my normal wardrobe, I never showed this blouse. This blouse is definitely more of a fall piece, as it's a heavy satin, but, when I saw it folded in one of my storage boxes, I knew I needed to wear it.

This dress is a recent thredUP purchase, and it's going to come in handy. I have some black dresses, but not any with shape in the waist, and for layering purposes, it's always good to have a defined waist. I will definitely need to shorten this length, I am not tall enough for this!

Welcome back, short denim skirt, it's been a while!

I bought this skirt last year for the Indiana State Fair, because, I needed something functional and lightweight and thought a denim skirt would be the answer. And, it was! It's just a basic denim skater skirt, but, its a summer piece that really lends itself to casualizing outfits.

I paired the skirt with a yellow floral off the shoulder top for a comfy, cool and casual look for the day!

It's not super obvious, but, I am inspired by the late 1910s and 1940s silhouette with clothing. I'm not idealizing the times, don't get me wrong, I just like the silhouette! This isn't a real rendition of that, but, to me, it has the vibe.

This button down blouse is originally from Lane Bryant, but, I got it from thredUp. I don't actually own any traditional, basic, blouses like this, so, I thought it would be a nice addition! I paired it with a thrifted yellow skirt and a straw hat for some casual but put together summer vibes.

For full transparency, I am a thredUP ambassador on Instagram, so I was offered a credit to buy an item or items on thredUP and create monthly posts.

Wrap dresses are unexpectedly versatile, and I am really enjoying wearing this one as a jacket like piece. It's lightweights and interesting, and it adds an extra layer of interest to an otherwise standard basic outfit.

The color combination that keeps on surprising me: yellow, pink and brown. Yellow and pink are lovely together, and brown matches both pink and yellow, so they live together harmoniously! What a great combination of colors.

The sleeves of this blouse is reminiscent, to me, of the Beauxbaton capelets, because of the flowing flounce sleeves. Their uniform was so dreamy and gorgeous, and are my favorite uniforms and outfits in Harry Potter. So lovely!

Isn't this top dreamy? It's apart of my last Poshmark bundle for the Spring/Summer, as I am happy with the warm weather wardrobe I have built. It's pink, of course, and it is so lightweight, which is great for the weather! It's, admittedly, too warm for jeans, but, as I'm not going anywhere, it's fine for the AC home in which I am responsibly staying in.

This coral dress radiates summer energy, it just does. It's been hot, sunny and stormy lately, which makes bare shoulders even more necessary. I'm not mad about it, I just honestly cannot believe it's June, even though I say this for every passing month. 6 months in to one of the weirdest times of my life, and I'm looking forward times ending.

Yellow and blue is a combination that is near and dear to me! June is here and summer yellow is going to be everpresent in my outfits, since it's super prevalent in my wardrobe. Yellow is sunny and happy, and honestly, it's needed.

I took this tie off my yellow wrap dress and used it as a bow here, which I love how it matches the skirt damn near perfectly!
