OOTD: Stylzoo Color Block Stretch Maxi Skirt

I looooove maxi skirts in summer. They are just so stylish, comfortable and easy to wear. This maxi is the Color Block Stretch Maxi Skirt from Stylzoo, and I'm in love with it! At first, I wasn't sure this skirt was going to work for me, but I was so wrong about that. I love the way it looks! I love the colors and the diagonal color block pattern. The skirt also has this unique flow to it at the bottom, and it makes it looks so beautiful. It has the perfect amount of flare to it.

I also love the comfortable, stretchy fabric and the fold over waist design. It looks great and feels comfortable all day long. What more could I possibly want? You can dress this skirt up or dress it down. It would look great as a casual look, work look, or even for an event! I paired this skirt with a simple tank and a blazer. I rolled the sleeves up on my blazer since it's getting pretty hot outside these days. The skirt is lightweight, so it is still perfect for the summer weather.

Here are some closer views of the skirt. Below is a side view. I love the way the color block design looks all the way around this skirt. It's so unique and beautiful!

This color block maxi skirt is available in sizes 1X-6X on the Stylzoo website. You can use the code thirty to receive 30% off of this and all other items on the website! So awesome.

Plus Size OOTD: IGIGI Bellissima Dress via Gwynnie Bee

No one does dresses like the IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel line. Style, comfort, fit, movement...this dress has it all! I loved this dress so much that I actually wore it twice this week. I wore it to a family gathering on Father's Day, then wore it later on in the week just because I loved it that much.

This dress is called the Bellissima dress, and I've been trying it through Gwynnie Bee. The dress is navy and coral, and it's such a lovely combination. The fabric is stretchy, so it helped keep me comfortable all day. I hate when fabrics don't move with me, and I hate having to tug and pull at things. Thankfully, I experienced none of that with this beautiful dress!

The movement of the skirt is so beautiful. I really love the construction of this piece. Yuliya Raquel really understands how to design pieces in a way that just work out beautifully every time. I'm always so impressed and super happy.

Plus Size OOTD: ft: NYDJ jeans via Gwynnie Bee

Surprise! I'm wearing jeans and I like it! I'm sure you guys know that I really don't wear pants or jeans very often. I had just never found any that I loved enough to wear on a regular basis. I always felt much more comfortable in skirts and dresses. However, I have still always been on the hunt for a pair of jeans that would change my mind. 

When I saw that Gwynnie Bee was adding jeans to their line-up, I thought, what the heck, I'll give them a try. If I hate them, I can always send them right back. No commitment, so no worries. I was expecting to hate them like pretty much every other pair of jeans I have ever tried. So...I was beyond surprised to find that I really love these NYDJ jeans I tried. 

Plus Size OOTD: Poppy & Bloom Peachy Keen Fit & Flare Dress

I had been wanting to wear this dress out for a date with my honey, and to take outfit pics, of course. However, it just kept raining and storming and I thought I would never get to wear this lovely dress. Friday was the perfect day though! It was beautiful and sunny, and just so nice and warm outside, so I finally got to wear this dress! Yay!

This is the first dress I have ever tried from Poppy & Bloom, but it definitely won't be the last. I really loved this dress from the moment I tried it on! It's such a beautiful print, and the fit is nearly perfect for me! There was a little bit of extra room at the arm holes, but other than that, it's perfect!
