From Kids Sizing to Adult Styling

If you don’t know, I am 4’10 on a good and weigh about 90 pounds, depending on what I eat and if I have been exercising. Because I am so petite I tend to buy a lot of my clothing from the kid’s section. I usually shop in Dillards or JC Pennys. If you haven’t been shopping in the children’s section, oh my has it changed since I was a kid. Children’s clothing is very fashionable now.

I purchased these dress within the past couple of years. When it comes to making kid’s size clothing more “adult” and stylish it all comes down to accessories. Whether it’s a belt, highly suggestion because children’s clothing tends to be straight and shapeless. Jewelry – a statement necklace or earrings, a nice watch, and Sunglasses. A hat if you choose to wear one, your purse and the shoes you choose to wear makes all the difference as well.

The first outfit, this is where the belt came in. The belt helps shape the dress and me. I went for a leopard belt to add some fun and separation of the dress. I also decided to carry my medium size snake print cross body bag to add character. I went for nude heels to complete the look, they make me look taller and are neutral with the bright orange dress and printed accessories.

The Second outfit, again I added a belt to give me body. I this belt came with the dress. Since the belt is brown, I paired brown/tan accessories with the dress. That where the hat, sunglasses, and sandals come in. I decided on these wedge sandals instead of heels because of the chevron print. I feel like this is an outfit you would wear if you plan on being outside for a long period of time.

The third outfit, I use to wear to work all the time. Even though the dress is color, you can still make it work/corporate appropriated.  I threw on with my blazer and pumps to give the dress a more professional look.

The fourth outfit, I decided to keep it young and playful by adding sandals. I think this blue crossbody bag goes well with this peachy pink dress.

Do you still shop in the children’s department as an adult? How would you wear these dresses?

Hey y’all! How was your Easter weekend?!

When I first saw this AEO Ahh-mazingly Soft Boyfriend Shirt, I fell in love with it. However, I didn’t buy it because I didn’t want to spend $45 on a shirt, that I was just going to wrap around my waist. Not sure why I never wear my plaid shirts as a shirt (unless I get cold) but I should try wearing them more often. Anyways, when I saw the shirt on clearance, it was mine! When they named it Ahh-mazingly Soft, they were not joking, it’s so soft. I love the colors, it makes it perfect to take your outfit from blah to fun and colorful. This boyfriend shirt is great is for spring.

These cute Flatforms are from payless. They are a little bit too big for me but they are in my correct size and the smallest size, a 5. They do hurt the back of my heel but other than that, the shoes are comfortable. These also come in a Silver Metallic. I really wanted these but my size is sold out.

Stripes & Camo

Hey dolls!

I am mixing patterns here! Something about the stripes and came together makes this outfit very exciting for me. This satin camouflage bomber jacket is everything!! I am so obsessed with it. I wear it non stop, so you guys will definitely be seeing more of it.

If mixing prints is not your thing, you can wear the bodycon dress by itself with a cute pair of booties or heels. For cooler weather you can throw on an oversize denim jacket.

What do you think about mixing stripes and camouflage together?

Mock Turtleneck Dress

 

img_2629

A major trend for this fall and winter is Mock Turtlenecks. We let this trend go in the early ’90s, but turtlenecks are making a comeback in a good way!

This dress is prefect for fall. I decided to go with a jean jacket but you can also rock a leather jacket. This dress is so versatile. You can dress it up or wear it causal for any occasion such as work, date night, or a lunch with friends. To dress this outfit up go for a pair of  heels (I vote for leopard print) or a pair of wedge heels with gold accessories. To keep the outfit causal try pairing the dress with booties or lace up flats.
