OOTD> Isle days

I got this sweater as a Christmas gift and I love it. The colors are so vibrant.  I am really loving neon and Forever 21 is the best plays to treat my neon fever.  I am however so bummed this sweater isn't listed online. It must be in stores only, but trust me, it is well worth the trip.  

I paired the sweater with a pair of INC leggings from Macy's, over the knee Torrid boots, and one of my favorite pieces from Target, a tunic with lace details.  I wore a hot pink cross necklace from Forever 21 and my vintage necklace that I always wear.  

What do you think...also side note: I know a lot of people have complained or requested my photos be taken from a lower angle and I am trying to come in lower.  My husband takes the pics and he is tall. Also, with my crap camera, I can't get my full outfit without it being a bit higher.

OOTN> Stripe Blocking

I am sure you are thinking this dress looks familiar...well that is because it has been in my last two posts!  As you already know I am a big fan of stripes.  I thought I would try and incorporate two of my favorite trends this season: stripes and color-blocking.  Now, I know this isn't technically color-blocking but I thought with the black SPANX nylons and red boots it would kind of sort of be color-blocking.  So, I ordered this dress from Macy's with a gift card I received for Christmas from my lovely aunt and I absolutely love it.  

Dress Information: it is an American Rag from Macy's.  It is 100% stretchy.  The material is so soft and it has a nice neckline.  The colors in the stripes are gorgeous. If I could find a lot of my stuff after my move, I would totally go more Boho with it because turquoise and coral would be fab with this dress.  One quick negative, is the dress is much shorter than in the picture.  I know that with my physique, that I would shorten the dress naturally, but it was short to begin with.  I ordered the dress in a 3X and it is roomy throughout the body of the dress, so I would say it would fit up to a size 32 but maybe just more as a tunic.  The dress is currently on sale for $34.99.

It's a stripe-olution!!!

Who said big girls couldn't or shouldn't wear horizontal stripes?  Whoever it was, was WRONG.  Right now, one of my favorite trends is stripes.  I'm showcasing a few of my favorite striped looks.  

Are you guys a fan of this trend?
