What I Wore: Stars In My Eyes

2013 was definitely a great year! While there were ups and downs, each moment of the last 365 days has taught me something and helped me grow as a person. I am so grateful for each and every one of you who have included me in your life and take time to check out my posts. You mean so much to me.

As the new year rolls in I am geared up to check off new goals on my list and live the best life I can! 

For NYE I decided to celebrate the good things to come in this ensemble! The shirt is Lane Bryant and the denim is c/o SWAK Designs. I absolutely fell in love with these pants - I have relatively skinny legs compared to my belly so I have a hard time finding skinny jeans that fit me perfectly but SWAK nailed it!

As for accessories, the necklace is Forever21 and the pointy toe pumps are from Payless!

Until next time,

Beck

What I Wore: Leather Weather

By now I’m sure you’ve seen a handful of bloggers sporting this leather jacket from Asos! It is the perfect jacket to layer over all of the sweatshirts I’ve been donning lately. This cheetah sweatshirt is by Style & Co via Macy’s!

These pieces are layer over a plain black dress from Calvin Klein. This look is wrapped up with Torrid boots and Pearly Violet lipstick from Make Up For Ever!

Until next time,

Beck

What I Wore: Je Ne Sais Quoi

Lately, I’ve had a real thing for skirts paired with sweatshirts! When I spotted this Jessica Simpson sweatshirt at Macy’s on 34th Street I began to swoon and knew it had to be mine. The skirt is Calvin Klein and was another Macy’s find!

The look is finished off with metallic accessories! The shoes are Ashley Stewart and this amazing clutch is c/o boohoo.

Until next time,

Beck

Simply Be Giveaway 
Yay! I’m so excited to announce a Simply Be giveaway to celebrate my 2 year blog anniversary! Keep reading to find out how to win this outfit in your size!
Simply Be is one of my favorite retailers because of their amazingly big variety of pieces. When I saw this shirt covered in branches I immediately knew that it belonged in my closet. I decided to build my outfit around this top and wanted to pair it with a skirt. This short wine colored skirt seemed like the perfect way to break out of my all black everything routine that I’ve been indulging in lately.
In my opinion almost every outfit can use a great jacket to tie it all together! This open front faux leather jacket is just what I was looking for to complete the look and it is so versatile I know that it will be a repeat offender in my daily wardrobe.
One lovely person will win this outfit from Simply Be!

What I Wore: Longline Vest
As most of you know, I’m a tall girl at 6’3, so when I see the word ‘long’ in the description of a clothing item it piques my interest! I was ecstatic to see that longline vests are a hot item this season and immediately fell in love with this one from MYNT 1792.
This vest is extremely versatile. It looks great open and layered over just about anything but I also love it zipped up and worn as a top!
The skirt was a bargain from Conway and the shoes were snagged from Nordstom RACK! The lipstick is from Illamasqua in the shade Growl.

#LuckyFABB 
I had the pleasure of attending this year’s Lucky FABB Fashion and Beauty Conference. It was such an amazing experience and I was so happy to see a lot of bloggers from the plus size realm there! 
For the first day of #LuckyFABB I wore this Jessica Simpson top with cute little flower cutouts on the shoulders. This Calvin Klein skirt is my favorite recent purchase and I guarantee you’ll see me wear it again - I can’t find a link to purchase it online, however, I just found it last week at the Macy’s on 34th Street!
Since I knew I would be moving around all day I went with these super comfy sneaker wedges from Lane Bryant and added my favorite MAC lippy, Dear Diary, to finish off the ensemble!

A Purple Dress 
I really love simple dresses with beautiful details. They are the purrrfect thing to throw on in a pinch and can easily be dressed up or dressed down! This Scarlett & Jo skater dress with mesh and lace detailing is a perfect example of that.
I recently wore this purple number for a night out with black peep toe pumps and a clutch. However, today I was heading out for some shopping with my mom who is visiting and decided to dress it down with these boots from Torrid! If you order these shoes from online you should know that I’m normally a size 13 and had to buy these shoes in an 11 - they run very large!
 Since I love the details on this dress I went very minimal with jewelry. Though, I rarely leave the house without my go to accessory: a bold lip!

What I Wore: Easy Glam
This shrug c/o 17 Sundays is the perfect piece to layer over an otherwise basic outfit to add some glamour! I love the fun pattern and the long length of this shrug. Even though this shrug is from the 17 Sundays spring collection it will work well for fall in NYC!
I paired this fun piece with my SWAK body-con dress, Ashley Stewart booties and a thrifted bag! This bag is my favorite thrift find to date. It is huge and can carry all the irrational things I refuse to leave behind at home! Haha.

What I Wore: Off to the Races
Being the sassy lady that I am, I completely fell in love with these leggings c/o 17 Sundays. I completely anticipate that these bottoms will be a staple in my fall wardrobe.
I decided to pair these amazing leggings with this shirt from Michael Kors. I love that this outfit is composed of two statement pieces that play well together!
Accessory wise I decided to keep it simple and just added a berry lip via YSL’s Rouge Volupte in the shade of Forbidden Burgundy. I’m getting my braces off next week so I had to throw in a photo that showcases my metal mouth while I still have the chance!
