I have been purchasing a few items here and there over the last past week and I want to share some of the things that I have found.
The first item is a lace top that picked up at H&M. Now at first I wasn’t feeling the whole lace obsession, because I think that it can be difficult for plus size women to pull this off. I also have a very unattractive birthmark on my arm, so I usually wear shirts that cover it, but self-acceptance is so important. I debated with my hubby if I should try it on and obviously he didn’t give a flip (never take a man to the mall with you). When I finally tried on the top I really liked it, so I picked it up.
I cannot articulate how in love I am with wedges. I picked up the first pair at Aldo, and I love that they are lace-ups. I picked up the Franco Sarto ankle boots at TJ Maxx, and I adore them as well. I love the little silver studs embedded into the leather trim at the top of the boots. Now I will admit that I wear a size 10, and I clearly saw that it said 91/2 on the shoe before I tried them on, but I had to take a chance. It paid off because the boots felt great, except for being a little snug around the ankle, but it is so worth it. I guess this is what people mean when they say beauty is pain!
I picked up this camouflage blazer from an online store, called Tilly’s. I have never shopped at this store, but they had the item I was looking for. I am not quite sure what I am going to do with this blazer. I like that it is very subtle and will not be to over the top for me to wear to work, yet I can jazz it up to wear on the weekends as well. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
The grey military jacket is from Kohl’s, and I am crazy about it. When I tried it on in the store my mom said, “You have to get that, it is badd.” My family knows that I like to shop when I have the opportunity, but my mom is on another level. She can out-shop me any day!
I think that I am the last person on earth to get a floral piece into my closet, but I was waiting for the right one to walk into my life. I have seen so many shirts and skirts to choose from, but none of them ever felt right. This ruffled button-down tunic is the perfect fit for me. I love the belt that came with it, and I cannot wait to actually wear it.
Well that is all for me right now, please let me know what cool items you have picked up lately.
