Hi loves, can you tell I’m getting my mojo back. I have really missed spending my Sundays curating fashion looks in finding beautiful locations to shoot them. I love the creative process behind fashion blogging and blogging in general. Throughout my week I’m constantly being pulled in so many different directions, now Sundays are way for me to use my creative juices in a different capacity. I want to share with you this beautiful tulle overcoat and lace dress from ClosetSheIn.com. When I seen this tulle overcoat I knew it would a beautiful piece in my collection. I love black in any form and a great color to accessorize. The color black is such a flattering and slimming color you really can’t go wrong wearing it. When you pair that with lace and a little bit a tulle, you can create magic.
Today’s look is a perfect mixture of sass and class. Tulle is such a whimsical fabric, it just makes you want to twirl. I love the idea of creating a tulle overcoat that is floor length as it can be paired with other pieces in your wardrobe. Depending on how much sex appeal you want to show you can really go from one end of the spectrum with this two-piece set. Today I decided to keep it a bit sexy. The funny thing about shooting today’s look was it was extremely windy and anyone who passed by got more than an eye full of me in this outfit. I’m really excited to be bringing you new looks each week here on the blog and I hope you enjoy all of the new creative content that I will be sharing with you all. I hope you all enjoy your week and find new ways to be creative.
Five Ways to Wear an Oversized Shirt Dress
Oversized shirt dresses are an item everyone should have in their wardrobe. They provide the perfect amount of comfort and can be styled in varies ways. The thing I adore about this trend is that no matter what pattern or print your oversized dress is you can wear it say or night. For today’s post, I decided to keep my oversized shirt dress as casual as I possibly could. I really wasn’t in the mood for sneakers or flats with this look so I decided to add a simple bootie and keep it light on the accessories. My oversized shirt dress is from ClosetSheIn.com. I am wearing the Glitter Eye Sequin Shirt Dress in size medium. This dress is very light weight and I got tons of complements while wearing it. Below I have my top five ways to wear an oversized shirt dress.
Add a flattering shoe.
The type of foot wear you choose will make or break any outfit. When where it with an oversized shirt dress it must help to flatter the silhouette. So, if your short the perfect heel can lengthen your frame. If the oversized shirt dress is casual a cute pair of sneakers might do the trick. Pair your oversized shirt dress with the right shoe and the look will be complete.
A belt goes a long way.
I spoke previously about the perfect silhouette and belts help to give the illusion of such. I am a curvy woman and sometimes anything oversized can make me look wider. When I add a belt to the look it helps to accentuate my covers verses hiding them. Also, if your oversized shirt dress is kind of boring or plain, adding a belt can really give the look more flavor especially if the belt has color of colorful hardware.
Accessories are key.
As mentioned, a belt can really transform the look. But what about other accessories? How about a really fun handbag or a large necklace. Key to any look is how you add your personal touch of flair and accessories do just that. My favorite way to do this is jewelry. A large statement necklace looks amazing on oversized clothing. If you want to keep it simple a cute ring and bracelet set can also do the trick.
Layering helps… a lot.
What would a girl do without an extra layer of clothes? I truly don’t know, and since we always need options this is the perfect way to get them. Adding multiple layers to an oversized shirt dress gives the look dimension. By adding layers, you can play with textures and prints to change the overall look of the outfit. Think about adding some faux fur or leather. Even a jean jacket goes a long way. This all helps to give the outfit shape fluency.
Don’t let the shirt wear you.
Oversized means bigger than a typical dress and that can often seem like a challenging thing to pull off. Friendly advice, wear with confidence. I always say to myself, if I don’t feel confident in an outfit I won’t wear it well. This is the same advice I would like to leave with you today. No matter how stylish of a look you have you have to feel confident in it. Comfort it key, and confidence is the lock that hold it together. Make sure that when you wear an oversized shirt dress you feel good in it.

This has been a dream of mine for many years and I have finally stepped out on faith and decided now is the time to pursue all of my dreams. One thing about being an entrepreneur is you are often times filled with self-doubt. You often wonder if now is the right time or if you’re making the right decisions. I am no different than any other entrepreneur in that, I also too struggle with these in decisive moments. Wondering if now is the right time, wondering how people will view my pursuits, or if I’m even capable of bringing my dreams to reality. This process has been taxing mentally and physically and has pushed me to my limits. I often times wanted to give up and just focus on something else, but I knew that I would not be as happy as I am today to share this news with you all. ClosetSheIn is here and I could not be anymore excited as I am today! If you all know me you know I’m currently twerking at the moment! All of the hard work has finally paid off.

Finally, back from my mini vacation and boy did I need it.
I have been under so much stress lately it’s not even funny. Crazy thing about life is your thrown unexpected challenges at times when you think you can’t take anymore. God really has a great sense of humor in that way. Recently, I took a mini vacation to South Beach Miami. It was a short weekend getaway but it was well needed. I really needed to gain a sense of perspective and peace of mind. My mind has been crowded with a never ending todo list and responsibilities. At times, I was feeling very overwhelmed and just worn out. I really needed the time to clear my mind and process my thoughts. That’s exactly what I did this past weekend. It’s amazing what a little time away can do for your mental stability. VIEW POST
There is nothing sexier to me than a wrap dress. It’s something about the way it moves when you walk. It hugs your curves just right and gives me this airy, light feeling. It’s simply beautiful. Today I wanted to give you the info on one of my newest pieces. This kimono style wrap dress is just wonderful to wear. On this day is was about 90 degrees and this dress kept me cool in the summer heat . I love the blush pink color and the cut of the dress was prefect for my tall frame. This dress is from BooHoo.com and it’s quite inexpensive. The shoes are from Missguided and matched the dress perfectly.

I have been taking the time out recently to focus a bit more on myself, mentally and physically. It’s been exactly a week and I can already tell the difference in my mood and how I feel. I just feel lighter and less stressed. Even though my work load is still very heavy at the moment I have to carve out time for myself to just relax and de stress. Although I’m in the process of changing my lifestyle on thing remains the same, I love to shop. VIEW POST
