Personal Style | Melissa McCarthy Floral Tunic and Denim

At the beginning of the season, I decided to browse the Nordstrom Rack website for some new tops to add to my fall/winter wardrobe. Knowing that I’d probably find a lot of spring and summer items on sale, that’s where I looked first. After only browsing for a few minutes, I spotted this vibrant Melissa McCarthy floral tunic. I didn’t care how much it was, I just knew I had to have it!

I’d already figured out how to wear the top at least 3 times and thankfully, it was in my size. There was nothing left to do but add it to my cart! I knew the item would fit, thanks to trying on a few Melissa McCarthy items before, so I was very pleased when the floral masterpiece arrived at my front door. I tried it on immediately and of course, it was perfect.

Have you ever had an item of clothing that you just KNOW you’re going to wear constantly? Well, that’s how I feel about this tunic. It’s the most comfortable top I own and the over-sized fit is perfection. Anything that’s flowy and not tight to my body, I’m a fan. The fact that it was on sale for less than $40 is also a major plus!

These days I’m very particular about what I purchase. If I don’t love it and if I can’t see myself wearing it more than 3 times, I’m not going to buy it. Of course, I make exceptions for accessories, shoes and some one-of-a-kind pieces, but for everyday wardrobe items that’s my rule.

Personal Style | Styling a Thrifted Blouse and Denim

When’s the last time you went thrifting? If I’m being honest, I haven’t (really) been thrifting in months. I know… Crazy, right? Well, that changed a few days ago. I had to urge to add some new pieces to my wardrobe for the fall, so I figured a quick thrift store trip wouldn’t hurt. 7 items and a few dollars later, I walked out with this sheer animal print thrifted blouse and a few other items. Mission accomplished!

Although this thrifted blouse is sheer, it’s still great for fall styling. It’s the perfect layering piece, which is why I decided to layer it over a black bodysuit. I’m all about comfort and style whenever I’m figuring out what to wear, but especially when it comes to work-wear. I’m often running errands or out and about during the day so I like to look presentable and chic, without compromising my comfort.

When styling a piece like this thrifted blouse, it’s important to remember to wear something fitted at the bottom. Because the blouse is flowy and over-sized, a fitted or slim pair of pants/denim helps balance out the look. Staying in the neutral family, I topped off the outfit with a pair of nude flats and one of my favorite purses. The subtle gold tones in the purse bring out my gold necklace and studs.

Personal Style | Wearing Denim and a Floral Blouse

HELLO THERE! I’m back with a brand new outfit AND a brand new attitude! I’ll get into my new attitude in another post, but for now let’s get into how I styled a pair denim and a floral blouse. Cute, right?! I’ve been wearing flowy tops all summer. No surprise there, I know. I’ve also been wearing this pair of ankle length denim over and over again. For a while I wasn’t able to comfortably fit into them, but since I’ve been walking away the pounds this summer these pants are back to fitting like a glove!

Floral Blouse and Denim

I purchased this Sejour blouse while shopping at Nordstrom Rack in Boca Raton, Florida. My family and I were there for a week in July while my sister competed in a pageant. I figured during my downtime I’d do a little shopping. Nordstrom Rack was a short Uber ride from the hotel, so of course I had to visit. While I wasn’t too pleased with their plus size section, I did find this blouse, a really cute pair of shoes and a few beauty items.

This blouse is perfect for year-round styling. The material is light, the pattern is fun, and the style is timeless. Although the pattern colorful, it’s still the perfect addition to my minimal wardrobe. Yes, I’m still on the minimal style wave. No worries; a minimal style update coming soon!

Personal Style | Denim and Leopard Print

Wearing denim and leopard print is probably one of my favorite combinations! This weekend I was able to style this combo for a day of errands, lunch and hanging out with hubs. I’ve been dying to wear this jacket, purchased from Macy’s a few seasons ago. Since the weather was just right, not too cold and not too warm, I figured it’d be the perfect jacket to wear.

I like to fill my wardrobe with clothes that can easily be mixed and matched. Of course I have some wardrobe items that are specifically for formal occasions, but the majority of my options can be worn any day. This outfit is the perfect example! Not only is this a great outfit for the weekend, but it can also work for a casual date night, a shopping trip or even a day of working from home.
