BEACH BOUND

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog Beach Bound
Hawaii is the ideal location for tropical prints and leafy, textured skirts.

Loved this outfit from my trip to Hawaii! So perfect for strolling and shopping around Waikiki and checking out the ginormous banyan trees along the beach. Attempting to channel my inner Beyonce with this Beyonce x H&M bustier top! I love it with this bright swingy skirt and crescent necklace from Hearts.

Hawaii Photo Diary (instagram edition)

Curvy Girl Chic Travel Hawaii Photo Diary
Had such an incredible time in Hawaii. (Is it even possible to have a bad time in Hawaii??) Quick instagram and iPhone photo recap before I share my outfits with you over the next couple weeks. :) xoxo!
**Side note, just noticed that one of the people in the photo above looks like she or he is mooning the beach. lol.

PERFECTLY PINK

Curvy Girl Chic Perfectly Pink
I feel a little like Sailor Moon in this outfit and I'm really, totally okay with that.

Wearing this super silky Manon Baptiste top made me feel all prim and proper and I kind of love it. Paired it with a sparkly tulle skirt from back when Forever 21+ was still called Faith 21, and a sparkly, crinkly rose gold pouch. Clothes like this just make me want afternoon tea and cake. ^__^

layer cake

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog Denim Jacket and Maxi Look
Forever falling back on maxi dresses and denim jackets as my summer uniform. More comfortable than jeans, and so easily dressed up for dinner, maxi dresses are a go-to for me once warm weather rolls around! I'm obsessed with this ruffled, layered concoction, and the fact that I scored it on super sale is just the icing on the cake! And if the dress is cake, then this amazing Henri Lou necklace would be the sprinkles, no? I'm a huge fan of Reagan Rowland's boho-chic pieces, particularly the necklaces made of gold and gorgeous natural stones and beautiful leather bracelets! So perfect.
