ANCHORED

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog MYNT1792 Harlem Moto
Hey guys! :D Checking in from Germany to share another look from MYNT! Of the three MYNT pieces I've worn, this one is my favorite! I love the contrasting body/sleeve combo, and there are so many chic details; I adore the contrast exposed zippers, buckles at the waist, and I love the leather epaulettes!

One of my favorite ways to wear feminine, wispy pieces is pairing them with tough, moto-inspired items to keep them from being overly saccharine. I absolutely love the way the jacket anchors this silky dress to make it wearable for day--without it, it looks a bit like a nightgown! :P

NEW OBSESSIONS

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog MYNT1792 Chelsea Jacket Look
Happy Monday! :) So excited to share these photos with you!

[ :: MYNT1792 Chelsea jacket c/o :: H&M+ pants (similar) :: Forever 21 crop top (similar) :: ]
[ :: Report heels :: Monika Chiang Raja clutch :: ]

Currently in Vienna (Austria...home of Arnold Schwarzenegger! teehee), but wanted to share these looks since I'll be one of MYNT 1792's Insiders! You can check out my profile on their page here! :) They're quickly becoming one of my favorite plus size brands for outerwear--the construction, fit, and quality are always on point!

I love how this tailored jacket pulls together these slouchy pants, which up until now, I hadn't worn out due to their pajama-y-ness. Love the way these pieces work together though! Wore a crop top because why not, and layered on bracelets to dress things up a bit. Also, currently obsessed with these white heels. Be prepared to see these on my blog a lot! :P

DEEP BLUE SEA

 photo 06-02-13026editedcopy.jpg
Happy Friday everyone!
Currently in Budapest, so I thought I'd share some photos I snapped a couple weeks ago! ;)

[ :: Monif C. Malibu Swimsuit c/o :: ]

Monif C. is consistently making my swimsuit dreams into a reality. I can't gush enough about how much I love this suit. It just brings me SO. MUCH. HAPPINESS. The vibrant blue print, the fact that it's designed to look like a wetsuit (!!!), and the perfect fit basically have me obsessed.

I took this suit for a spin at the beach a couple weekends ago, hoping that the industrial strength zipper would stay put, and that the extra coverage would help me stay warm (and unburned!) while boogie boarding in the chilly Pacific waters! Needless to say, mission accomplished! No wardrobe malfunctions, and I managed to maintain feeling in all my extremities while in the water. Perfect.

PIER AVENUE

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog Thread and Butter Noah Tank
Last outfit post from Hawaii! Wearing more tie dye from Thread & Butter. :)

[ :: Thread & Butter Noah tank c/o :: Asos skirt :: Marni for H&M necklace :: Target sandals :: Grafea backpack :: ]

Tie dye on tie dye! I love the swingy shape that happened from pairing these two pieces. This top has quickly become a weekend staple since I came back home--it's super soft and the bright color is so right for these hot days we've been having!

I never got a lei while we were in Hawaii, so I improvised with this oversized flower necklace from the Marni for H&M collab several seasons ago. I love the clunkiness of it! Finished off the look with these sandals which have pretty much been worn to death since I bought them--I plan on getting them in several more colors! At $15 each, they're the perfect beach/pool sandal!

KEEP IT SIMPLE

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog Torrid Studded Cami Dress
Some days, particularly ones where all you plan on doing is picnicking on the beach, less is definitely more. All I needed was a comfy summer dress, flats to walk to the Japanese takeout shop in, and a bag big enough to hold a beach towel and the essentials.

One of my favorite purchases from Thailand--I use this bag every time I travel. It's perfect as a carry-on! :)

Totally didn't notice until now that everything I'm wearing has diamond shapes on it. Aztec print on the flats, studding on the dress, and quilting on the bag! Completely unintentional. lol!

Happy Thursday! xoxo :)

BEACH CHIC

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog | Beach Chic with Thread and Butter Tie Dye Skirt
I never pegged myself as a tie dye kind of girl, but the second I laid my eyes on this gorgeous blue maxi skirt, I knew I had to have it! It's the perfect, bright cobalt blue, and I couldn't think of a better place to wear it than in Hawaii. The print reminds me of ripples in the bright, crystal clear ocean!

Paired with a bright white top and various shades of blue and turquoise, the skirt is such a statement maker. I'm in love!

Ack, I still have so many more Hawaii photos to share with you, but leaving for Europe in just over a week! So excited! Do any of you have recommendations for where to go/see/eat/shop in Budapest or Amsterdam? Making my way from one to the other over the course of a couple weeks. :D Would love some suggestions. xoxo!

PRIMARY PIECES

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog | Primary Pieces
This is my go-to look for vacationing in hot weather. There is literally nothing worse than being hot, uncomfortable, and sweaty when you're supposed to be enjoying yourself, so my travel essentials always include a cute pair of denim shorts, a breezy top, a cute carry-all, and lots of fun jewelry to spice up a look!

I'm a little obsessed with these shorts at the moment (I've been wearing them every weekend since I got them!). They are quite possibly the best-fitting shorts I've ever owned, and the crochet detail is the perfect addition to a beachy outfit.

Obsessed with these shorts. Also, I felt like such a badass with this eagle ring on. Always a good thing.

Being a tourist and snapped this in front of Diamond Head! :D Paired this necklace with my outfit to keep things interesting. I love the red-on-red effect! :D (It's actually red-on-red-on-red if you include my sunburn. ha! :P)
