It’s been raining for two days straight here in Montreal, so I figured I would brighten up my day (and hopefully yours, regardless of the weather) with this very colorful post, featuring this stunning, multi-colored floral kimono from Forever 21+ and this amazingly vibrant necklace from ALDO Accessories.
I’ve paired these pieces with my trusty black leggings from Additon Elle, a reddish-orange tank top (Forever 21+) which matches perfectly with the kimono, cute T-strap flats (Forever 21) and some colorful bracelets, to create a bold, lively look that could brighten up just about anyone’s day!
Since the start of this year, I challenged myself, and I went from someone who feared wearing color, to… Well… This girl that you see here! I’ve already received so many compliments on this outfit – it’s crazy! I never could have imagined that I would feel so free and confident wearing such bright, bold hues, but let me tell you, it feels amazing!!!
All can say is this – never be afraid to be seen. Do not feel like you should be invisible. Wear color! There is a joy that comes from wearing beautiful colors that I never new existed until I really gave it a shot; and I would hate for any of you to miss out on this fantastic feeling!!!
No seriously… I woke up like this. It’s Friday; and also happens to be date night for the hubby and me! Tonight’s plan: dinner and drinks at one of our favorite spots in Montreal! And guess who’s rocking a just-rolled-out-of-bed, sexy, messy-hair look? This girl! And why, you ask? Because I don’t feel like spending three hours nearly immobile, letting my hair air dry, all the while trying to fight my three-year-old off from attempting to wrestle with me, and causing my curls to dry in a knotty frizzy mess, because the reality is, I’ve pretty much already achieved that look, with a lot less effort.
We always look forward to date night. With four kids, life can be a little crazy
sometimes, scratch that – all the time! So, date night is our special time to regroup, reconnect and enjoy a little intimate time together, one on one, without the constant complaints, demands and sheer lack of privacy that come along with having a large family. And imagine, my husband wants to try for one more!?!? Oh Lord, has he lost his mind?
But anyway, while we still have only four, and date night is still possible, we are seizing the moment, taking the time to enjoy each other, to keep our marriage exciting and strong; and what better way to remind your man of what he’s got, than to turn up the sex appeal just for him!?
So, tonight, to go along with my messy, tangled locks, I’m rocking this chic William Rast mesh top, from Addition Elle, over my favorite black t-shirt bra (Additon Elle), showing some skin but still leaving enough to the imagination; and I’ve paired it with this great quilted pleather belt (Addition Elle), black leggings and charcoal grey, Aldo flats.
For the record, my appearance is nowhere near as human as this when I actually wake up in the morning, but I haven’t scared my husband off yet, so I guess I don’t look that bad! Ha!
It’s March!!! And while there’s still a thick layer of snow covering the ground, I am starting to see the light at the end of the long winter tunnel. The days are getting longer, the sun is feeling warmer and just the idea that soon enough we’ll be seeing the spring flowers start to peek up out through the cold ground has me feeling renewed.
So, to celebrate those flowers that will soon making their annual appearance, I’m wearing these fun, floral leggings from Forever21+. They are joyful, bright and just so happen to be extremely comfortable, which is always a bonus!
I’ve paired them with a royal blue, 2-way tank top from Addition Elle, my favorite tone on tone, black leopard print, 3/4 length sleeve jacket from Penningtons, multi-strand, beaded jewelry and my cute, white patent leather Aldo flats for a casual, whimsical look that infuses even more warmth into an already fading winter.
Nautical themed clothing has been around for ages, and we all know the stereotype of the miserable, long faced kid, who’s been forced into a sailor suit (even though he is much too old for it) by his overbearing mum (often wearing a matching outfit) for a family portrait… Right?
Well… This look, while having a nautical vibe, is far from being the sailor suit in an awkward family photo. The striking navy and red color block “Marcie” dress from Monif C. is sporty yet sophisticated. I’ve paired it with lovely, white patent leather flats from Aldo, and gold jewelry to really anchor this look’s nautical feel without going overboard. Having at least one fantastic nautical look in your wardrobe is a great way to ensure that your transition into spring will be smooth sailing!
I’d love to see some of your spring looks! Please email me your photos at email@example.com or hashtag me in your pics on instagram (@flightofthefatgirl) and I will choose somebody to feature on my Facebook page next week!
