A little while ago I got contacted by lovely Erica Young from the Ashley Stewart team to try on and style two pieces from the new Signature Collection available at Ashley Stewart as we speak. At that time it hadn't yet been released. I was super excited, still am, but live caught up with me and threw me a curve ball and time slipped out of my hands I was never able to participate with the other bloggers in Ashley Stewart's contest online. So sorry for that.
I'm so happy and humbled that I got a sneak peak into the collection at least, Thank you Ashley Stewart! I'm really liking it. It's hard to find nice work/office wear as a plus size girl that fit and look great.
So this classic blazer in blue was my first pick, I don't own a lot of blazer because I always have such a hard time finding one that is comfortable. I'm top heavy, I have big arms and the "ladies" don't help, totally in the way. I end up not being able to move my arms comfortably etc. I picked a size 16 to be on the safe side because of that very reason. So I've been loosing weight, so the size 16 was too big on me, but no biggie. I had a "make it work" moment and decided to roll up the sleeves for a more casual and comfortable look. I love the sharp shoulders, the color is beautiful, and I like how it has one button at the waist so you can get a nice defining curvy shape buttoning it up. I would say a size 14 would have been perfect on me, but I'll definitely wear this one with jeans and flats when I want to feel more relaxed and like....slouchy chic, if that even makes sense. haha!
I like to keep it simple so decided to wear a white tank top, and black capris and matching wedges. Easy!
What I'm wear:
Signature blazer from Ashley Stewart, Pants from Lane Bryant, Shoes from Justfab, watch from BP available at Nordstrom.
Was channeling my inner "Carrie" from Sex and the City wearing this gold plated name necklace from Onecklace. Never owned one before but they were so kind to send me one, I adore it! You can choose which ever font you'd like too, which trust me was not at easy task because they have so many to choose between, the options are many. You guys got to check it out, the necklaces come out beautifully!
You like the blazer? Find it here! It comes in 3 different colors, blue, black and grey. Also with matching dress pants and skirt so you can pair it up and look like a super chic business woman ;)
Also right now Ashley Stewart is having a "Friends and Family" SALE, last day today! So go on and head on over before it's too late and check out the new Signature Collection.
Until next time,
