Things I am loving from Faith21

This is My Faith21 wishlist:

I love the print of this dress it is so cool and the style really shows of the waist!
Striped Bow Blazer $24.80
Now you guys know how I feel about girly things and I really love this blazer and it has a bow in the back!!!!
Knit Peplum Skirt $15.80
I love this skirt and the knit makes it easy and comfy to wear perfect with a tucked in button down or even a tee shirt!
Cozy Faux Leather Jacket $37.80
The perfect leather jacket for my fellow short torso girls, the cropped style will create a waist without adding bulk to our mid-section.

My dream work wardrobe

These are outfits I put together from Polyvore that I would love for my work wardrobe and are perfect for someone in a creative field. This is for INSPIRATION ONLY obviously none of these things are plus sizes I just like the outfits:

Some work essentials:
  • A structured work bag (The Birkin is perfect)
  • Pencil Skirts
  • Blazers
  • Classic jewelry
  • Lots of printed tops to mix with classic basics
  • Cardigans in lots of colors
  • Low comfy but cute heels

I LOVE Chambray!!!!

Hey y'all, I am really loving Chambray(a lighter version of denim) right now. I had a ton of inspiration and I put some outfits together for this look I hope you like the outfits:

This is actually a way to wear chambray in winter with a Long cardigan(TJMaxx), Pashmina(H&M), Chambray Dress(Target-Pure Energy), Grey Boots(Alloy), and Gold watch(ASOS).

These are great ways to wear a Chambray shirt with a skit can be casual or dressier: Shirt(TJMaxx), Black skirt(Faith21), Pink skirt(ASOS), shoes(discount shoe factory), and watch(ASOS)

And last but not least this is my favorite way to wear it for summer: knit vest(Value Village), Dress( Target-Pure energy), turquoise necklace(hand me down!!), and Flip flops(Havaianas)
