LACE FOR DAYS

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog Lace on Lace Outfit - Simply Be Lace Trimmed Denim Shorts
Perfect weather calls for pretty fabrics and girly accents! Nothing screams California-girl like a great pair of denim shorts, but I'm not always a huge fan of super distressed, chock-full-of-holes styles. They look great on some people, but they aren't really for me. These lace-trimmed shorts strike the perfect balance between casual and girly!

HEAT WAVE

Hiiiiiiiiiiiii guys! :D I hope you've been having a good week! These photos are a little late because I've been swamped at work (oh hai working until 10pm on a Friday night!) but a couple weeks ago it got up to the high 80's in California!

I first spied this amazing Angel Ribbons fringed beauty during the Simply Be Spring Preview a couple months ago and I knew I had to have it! It's so airy and boho, and I couldn't imagine a better time to break it out than during our first post-winter heat wave!

SIMPLY LUXE

Hey guys! First and foremost, thank you so much for the well wishes on Twitter and Instagram! ❤ You guys are too sweet. Getting some blogging done from the hospital because time waits for no one, sick or not! :P Granted, this is a teeny bit behind schedule this week, but hopefully it's coming better late than never! :)

TRANSITION DRESSING

Incorporating leather into my outfits in a way that won't leave me with a heat stroke has more or less become my mission in life. It may be 90 degrees but that won't keep me from wearing leather on a daily basis!

sweet spot

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog Sweet Spot
Because every girl needs a giant candy clutch in her life.

I have a total sweet spot for anything candy-themed. From my Kate Spade chocolate bar clutch to this MMM x H&M magenta monstrosity, I just can't get enough of the kitschy goodness. I also have a Juno-esque hamburger phone (thanks sis!), cheeseburger CD case, strawberry pillow, and numerous other items disguised as food. I just need a macaron iPhone case and I'll be all set! :D

So clearly my blazer obsession is never going away. They're just so perfect for every occasion, and they legit go with EVERYTHING. I'm so ready to wear bright colors again, and this cobalt blazer from Susan Graver for QVC fits the bill perfectly! I don't have a ton of experience buying from QVC, but I must say the selection is insane! Susan Graver offers mostly work-appropriate items, but I'm kind of crazy for all the outerwear options (like this colorblock coat--hellooo)!
Side note: Did you know that almost all QVC clothing goes up to a 3X and runs large? If you're buying, size down for sure.

I also busted out one of my new favorite tops from Simply Be! I absolutely love the way the print adds personality to a work look. To play off the panels in the jacket, I also paired the blazer with my leather paneled skirt from Forever 21+, on sale now for $9.99! Crazy. I might buy a backup.

Thanks for reading! Happy Friday!
