I’ve made the decision to spring forward with Spring, and leave Winter far, far behind, regardless of the weather temperatures.  Okay, I say this now and I’ll probably change my tune at the first sight of a snowflake in the sky, but, I am moving ahead with bringing out the bright colors, flouncy skirts and colorful florals from my wardrobe.

 

I was recently offered the chance to try out the new Sloan collection from Banana Republic, and I immediately went for these gorgeous turquoise slim ankle pants.  FYI, they have the perfect amount of stretch to them, keep their shape with multiple wears, the fabric is rich, and they fit like a glove.  If you can’t tell, I love them!  Highly recommended.  But back to my “vow of Spring”.  My first instinct was to pair these pants with a black and white striped top, black pumps and a black handbag.  I’m sure I will wear that outfit later on, but I’m so ready for color, so I went all out and wore as many brights as possible.  I felt cheery, colorful and had a spring in my step (pun intended).

Happy Monday Everyone!

 

Standing at a curvy 5’2″, I usually find that slim fitting clothing looks best on my small, shapely frame.  I love the idea of oversized pieces, however I have a difficult time finding items that are oversized but do not overwhelm me.  I love this Old Navy coat because it looks a little oversized, but still looks like I’m wearing my own coat, and not one borrowed from my Man.  And, on sale for only $30, how could I pass this up?!  I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!

It’s funny how our personal style changes over the years.  Several years ago, I wouldn’t have been caught dead in skinny jeans.  I’m a curvy girl, and after trying on a couple of pairs of skinnies, I quickly decided that the shape and cut did not flatter my figure.  I was “anti-skinny”.  Fast forward a few years to 2010, and it was nearly impossible to find anything but skinny jeans in stores.  Flares and boot cuts were hard to find, and somehow felt dated.  I had no choice but to conquer my “skinny” fear and squeeze my lady curves into another pair of skinnies.

 

I soon realized that depending on the brand, cut of the top half of the jeans and the weight of the denim, that skinnies could actually flatter my curvy shape.  Fast forward a few more years to 2013, and now I feel that skinnies are the style that flatter my figure the most!  Go figure.

 

I’m especially loving my Old Navy skinnies, and find that their cuts and shapes look really great on women with curves.  Plus, the price is awesome!  All of Old Navy’s skinny jeans are currently on sale until October 2, with prices starting at only $19!  Crazy!  They have so many fabulous prints, colours and textures.  I was immediately drawn to this fabulous floral pair I’m wearing, and I just love the subtle blue-on-blue print.
