Ravishing in Ruby

You all know my love for karinadresses . They never disappoint! The lovely patterns and designs of these dresses make them a simple choice for everyday style. This month I am featuring the Ruby in Atomic Umbrella. 

The Ruby is a wonderful design for curvy girls like me. I love how it is belted to show off my waist and the vneck elongates the neck and lengthens the torso. I also love the midi length of this style. It is the perfect length- not too short and not too long. 

The fabrics are so comfy and wrinkle resistant which are perfect for traveling. These are the best dresses for work travels! 

Here are some pics of the Ruby:

Style Spotlight: Shopsugarsands

This past week I posted outfits from a new boutique that I discovered called Shopsugarsands. I love finding new places to shop and share with all of you! I thought I'd do a roundup of the different looks from this past week. I have been showing looks from their Curvy section and so few I think they are so on point! 

First up is this gorgeous floral open back dress. I love everything about this dress from the colors to the fabric to the pompom detailing- and the open back! So pretty! 

Next is the long hooded cardigan.  I didn't realize it until I looked closer that there are beautiful fall colors in this cardigan! There is tan and olives running through it and it will match so many things! 

The ruffled blue floral top is next. I paired it with jeans and boots but you could also dress it up for work with a pair of dress pants or a skirt. 

Lastly is this leopard print sheer blouse. The back is awesome too! I belted it because it runs larger on me and hangs lower On me than I prefer. I paired this with leather leggings and heels and I love the look- even though I did joke that it reminds me a bit of Peg Bundy! 

You can shop all of these looks and more for 40% off through November 28 using the code SHOP40. 

I hope you all find some awesome deals and steals this week and weekend!

Sunday Style: In the Navy

Navy is such a beautiful color. It's simple and a neutral and can be dressed up or down. Navy can be worn to formal events instead of black even. It's calming yet commands authority in perhaps a different setting. 

Imagine my delight when finding this beauty from  gcgme.com! The perfect stretchy fabric provides comfort while still staying classy! The waist defines and delights and the hem is the perfect length to show off those stems! 

I dressed this Jenai navy blue ruched dress up a bit with leopard heels and some gold and jewels but I also have plans to dress it down with some boots and wear it for fall and winter. Like I said, navy is a neutral and can be worn so many ways! 

Check out these pics of me in this wonderful navy dress!

Julia and Irma and Leggings-Oh My!

I was first introduced to Lularoe a couple of years ago. I immediately fell in love with the Amelia, Cassie and Irma that I got. I loved the colors and prints of the fabrics. I loved having unique pieces in my wardrobe that others don't have. Lularoe makes it easy to wear clothes that make you feel good.

Being a blogger is such a fun thing. One thing is that I am introduced to people and brands that I didn't already know. I love working with small businesses, online businesses, startups, consultants, you name it. I love being able to share products and services that I have tried and loved. This time I'm working with my friend, Shanon , who sells Lularoe and is head over heels for it too! 

Lately it seems everyone you talk to has heard of Lularoe and their leggings. Because I mostly wear dresses, I like the fact that they sell other items too that you can wear and be equally as comfortable and stylish in. Their clothes come in super fun prints as well as solids and can be worn multiple ways. 

Today I am showcasing the Julia which is a straight sheath dress as well as the Irma and leggings. The Julia can also be worn shorter if you fold it up or can be worn longer as I am wearing it. If you get one a size or two larger, you can also rubber band it from the inside and have it appear as rouching. How fun! 

I'm wearing mine plain so you can see the dress but I wore it a second time and wore a cardigan over it and belted it. I'm loving the green and yellow print for fall! The Julia runs smaller so I would definitely recommend going up a size or two as it is a tighter fit. 

The second outfit I'm wearing is the Irma tunic and the leggings. For sizing reference, I'm only wearing a medium In the Irma as it runs quite large. I'm also wearing the Tall and Curvy leggings. Again, these can be cuffed up if you what them to be shorter. 

Now, here comes the fun part of being a blogger and collaborating! A giveaway! Shanon is giving you a chance to win a $50 credit to her Lularoe shop! Wow! Imagine what you would buy with your credit! All you have to do is follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter below and you'll be entered to win! (This contest is not sponsored or affiliated in any way by Lularoe.) The winner will be notified by email once we have verified the entry criteria has been properly met. Have fun and good luck!
