Monochromatic with ELVi

Monochromatic I've been trying not to spend lately and I've gotta say I'm pretty proud that I've been doing pretty well! Digging for treasures in my closet has definitely been helping, due to the way my rooms set up I can only see so many pieces of clothes at once and tend to forget about things or only search through the main visible rack. I've got so many fun pieces to wear once the weather gets better!

I stumbled upon my first pair of Jeffrey Campbell Lita's (aka the beginning of my obsession with all JC shoes♥)  in the deepest corner of my closet and I just had to wear them! They were a gift from Jayson on our first Valentine's Day together and I was literally lusting over them so hard. I was feeling a monochromatic look and had to pair it with my gorgeous new Monochrome Abstract Print Dress from ELVi, blazer from Junarose, vintage pearl necklace and iridescent clutch from New Look.

~*Mix n Match*~

Have you ever woken up, did the daily routine and started sifting through your wardrobe looking for something to wear, and you find a few pieces you know won't work together but you're still kinda adamant that you must wear them? That's me on a daily basis. I find a combination of tops and bottoms that 100% look weird as hell together, but I still kinda sorta want to wear them out still?

Thus, yesterday when I was looking for an outfit I decided I definitely wanted to wear my daisy crop sweater and a velvet maxi skirt. I didn't even second guess it (typically I tend to, which leads to a huge majority of my clothes in a pile on the floor lol), I paired them with my fave Penningtons chain which I got as a gift from Erica, my new sandals from Charlotte Russe and headed out.

Am I the only one who ever wants to wear whatever the hell they want on a daily basis? I definitely know there are some days where I have to look more put together (aka put a little more effort into what I wear due to work, events, etc.), but for the most part I just really want to wear certain things even if I'm certain they could have been better outfits, if that makes sense? plus size crop top velvet maxi skirt plus size fashion toronto canada penningtons jack vanek daisy plus size crop top velvet maxi skirt plus size fashion toronto canada penningtons jack vanek daisy plus size crop top velvet maxi skirt plus size fashion toronto canada penningtons jack vanek daisy plus size crop top velvet maxi skirt plus size fashion toronto canada penningtons jack vanek daisy plus size crop top velvet maxi skirt plus size fashion toronto canada penningtons jack vanek daisy plus size crop top velvet maxi skirt plus size fashion toronto canada penningtons jack vanek daisy plus size crop top velvet maxi skirt plus size fashion toronto canada penningtons jack vanek daisy

Iridescence

I know I seriously always talk about the weather but, I kid you not, it is all I can think about. The weather's been really iffy lately, one day it's -16 the next day it's 8 degrees. I'm definitely getting sick due to the constant fluctuating. Good news though - it's going to be in the positives (and supposedly stay there) after the weekend!!! After hearing the good news and despite it being an extremely cold day still, I ended up getting decked out in some of my fave iridescent pieces! What can I say? It definitely brightens my mood and gets me amped for ~*real*~ 100% Spring weather.

I picked up this lovely sequin top I missed out on from ASOS from Assa of My Curves and Curls at the last Big Deal Toronto and I'm seriously in love with it. The moment I saw it while running clothes back from the change rooms I knew it had to be mine! I paired it with my new fave jeans from Charlotte Russe Plus (I kid you not I've worn these practically every third day since getting them, they're just sooo comfy and easy to throw on), iridescent clutch from New Look, sandals from Missguided, and my Mama (grandma) vintage pearl necklace.

Spring has ~*officially*~ Sprung with Charlotte Russe Plus!

Charlotte Russe Plus It's official, Spring has Sprung!!! Last weekend Jayson and I decided to check out the beautiful Allan Gardens, let me just say pictures cannot even show you how beautiful and peaceful it is in there.  I thought it was the perfect place to shoot my second Charlotte Russe Plus look (you can see my first look here and my current CR+ wants here)! If you haven't checked out the collection yet, you definitely should! The options are perfect, both on trend and affordable! I have added Charlotte Russe to my "check for new arrivals daily" stores and, I'm constantly adding items to my cart. For my second look I decided to pair the Crochet off the Shoulder Flounce Top with the Acid Wash Chambray Skater Skirt, Iridescent Rhinestone Necklace, Lug Sole Sandal Flatform Wedge and this adorable pink mini bucket backpack! It's one of my new fave girly looks and I cannot wait to wear this once it's appropriate outside (side note: it's currently snowing again in Toronto today *insert sadfaces 4eva*)!

how to be less bodycon(scious)!

It's weird thinking back on the time I wouldn't allow myself to wear anything body conscious. I've definitely come a very long way since my teenage self-hate days. I remember believing my tummy was my worst feature and I refused to wear anything that would even slightly show it off. I was so brainwashed with society's fat stigma that I believed I would never be able to wear anything I wanted, let alone body con skirts or dresses until I "lost the weight".

Clearly, that never happened but instead what did happen was I realized that I can wear anything I want! It feels incredible to not just say that, but actually mean it. The girl you see now is so different from even 17-year-old Jessica. She would have never even considered rocking crop tops, fatkinis, short shorts or body con skirts. I don't even know who that girl is anymore, I can't even imagine who I would be if I was still her. My point is, for those of you who are still not 100% with yourselves, it's okay. As long as you try, and continue to work towards loving yourself it will happen! There's no way in hell I ever thought I would be okay with myself, let alone love myself but it happened, and I'm telling you it was the best thing to ever happen to me!

Wantlist x Charlotte Russe Plus!

As I'm sure most of you have heard Charlotte Russe has launched a Plus line!!! I'm so happy that more and more major retailers are starting to finally include us alongside our straight size counterparts! I haven't made a Wantlist in quite some time but, I'm currently lusting after so many pieces I thought I would share them all with you! I've been an avid shopper of Charlotte Russe since I was a teen (read about it here) but, mainly stuck to their jewelry, shoes, etc. I was overjoyed to find out they were expanding their sizes and launching a plus line! My iridescent/sparkly/mirrored love is still going strong as you can see by my current wants. I created two fun looks as well as all my other current wants. I cannot wait to wear these pieces in the Spring (side note: Toronto is actually warming up! Spring IS coming soon!), I'm already dreaming of those beautiful days! Charlotte Russe is also behind #HeartYourSelfie Day!!! For every Instagram post until March 22nd with "@CharlotteRusse and #HeartYourSelfie" Charlotte Russe will donate $1 to Girls Inc!!! I'd love if you participated, it's for a well deserving cause and let's be honest, who doesn't love taking selfies??? ;)

Anything from Charlotte Russe+ you're currently coveting???

Transitioning with Carmakoma!

Carmakoma
The snow is finally starting to melt and I for one am ecstatic!!! I've been anticipating Spring so hard, I've been reorganizing my closet over and over in hopes that one day soon I will be able to wear shorts again! Unfortunately, that won't be for quite some time but, at least I can change out my Winter coat for a Spring one! The Medina 4 Coat from Carmakoma was perfect for the ~*transitioning*~ !  It's warm enough that I'm not freezing in our slightly above zero weather but, I also won't be sweltering to death until at least another 15 degrees. I'm seriously obsessed with this coat, I'm in love with the print and the fit is actually perfect(a lot of jackets the arms tend to be too long for me - not the case with the Medina 4). Underneath I wore Carmakoma's Sakar Dress(the shape is amazing, I'm loving those pockets), leggings, my new fave backpack from Charlotte Russe, boots from PLNDR and Kastor & Pollux's Vesperia necklace!

I'm anticipating the warm weather and being able to wear this look sans leggings! How do you get into transition mode for the Spring???
