Black and White Off Shoulder Blouse + LTS Skinny Pants

Off the off the shoulder trend has been in heavy rotation for the Spring season and has been seen on celebrities and bloggers alike. I’ve always been fond of this trend and have a collection of off the shoulder blouses I’ve collected over the years.

Black White Off Shoulder TopI remember when I was younger joking that my shoulders were so broad I could play football. Truth be told I loved my broad shoulders. They complimented my collar bones and i always looked graceful in an off the shoulder neckline

The black and white stripe pattern in this blouse was too adorable. I also loved the billowy balloon sleeves on the blouse which fit my arm length perfectly. I wanted to keep my palette neutral so I paired the blouse with the Long Tall Sally Allegro Skinny Pants I snagged during their sale.

I wanted to add a hint of color to the outfit so I paired the look with neon yellow trim chevron heels I bought from Aldo during their sale last year. Aldo has amazing heels in sizes 11 and under and I’m always stalking the site for a good deal. Maybe it’s the Caribbean in me but I always try to incorporate color into an outfit.

I’m definitely making off shoulder blouses a DIY project. They are so easy to make!

Follow Your Heart – Ankara and Fringe

I decided to dress up for The Meet Your Tall Sisters Brunch hosted by Tall Society. On my way home I drove by this awesome mural near Union Market that read Follow Your Heart.

What a fitting quote. I’ve been struggling with doing such a thing as of late and I’m finally making moves towards doing just that.

ankara skirt

I’ve had this ankara skirt by Chez Kevito for 2 years. I snagged the last of this fabric when I realized it was the same used by Stella Jean in an ankara skirt for her collection. The skirt Chez Kevito made is a dead ringer for the Stella Jeans sans the red trim.

I finally got to wear the Edward Fringe Heel I purchased a few weeks ago from Shiekh Shoes .

An alternative to this heel is the Steve Madden Sassey

Spring Stripes with a Pop of Color

I picked up this black and white striped skirt for a steal a few months ago. It was way too cold to rock it but now that it’s warmed up I decided to break it out.

The skirt is made of a scuba fabric which helps it to keep its shape. I paired it with a bright yellow top and matching heels for a pop of color.

The Limited Tall Soft Trench Look Dress

The Limited Tall launched their tall line about two years ago. I always loved The Limited for solid career clothing so when they launched their Tall line I was ecstatic. I was browsing the Tall section and came across this Tall Soft Trench Look Dress.

Tall Soft Trench Look Dress

The trench dress has been a fashion trend I have been following for a few years so I was pretty happy to see a Tall version of this dress offered. The sleeveless dress features an oversized shawl collar and a tie belt for a defined waist. The dress is made of a crepe fabric which reads much more expensive than its very reasonable price tag. The dress was fully lined making it appropriate for work. Even though the dress is Tall it still hit me a few inches above the knee so women taller than 6 feet should be wary of the length.

I paired the dress with the Nine West Lieluh heels. I stumbled on the Lieluh heels in the Nine West store and instantly fell in love. They originally came up to a size 12 but these babies sold out immediately! I stalked the website for about twice a day until a size 10.5 appeared. I purchased that bad boy immediately because I knew I wasn’t the only one stalking this heel. The Lieluh heel features a multi-color pop art print. The toe strap features a braided pattern and the center strap is a unique black and white windowpane print. This shoe is so dope and I’m glad I was able to snag a pair before they sold out.

ASOS TALL Swing Dress

I am loving the boho festival dresses retailers have been releasing for the Spring festival season. I snagged this ASOS TALL Swing Dress With Gypsy Shoulder Detail and Lace Insets for $28 during the ASOS outlet sale and it was a steal!

I love these swing dresses because they are extremely comfortable and obviously hide any body flaws. This is the dress you could wear to all you can eat brunch or a family barbecue and remain stylish and comfy.

I paired it with ASOS Silver Chunky Heel Sandals for a clean and classic finish.  These sandals are sold out but a similar pair can be found on ASOS and runs up to Size 11.
