WhatUp Wednesday #27
It’s been a minute since I last wrote! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that last week I was in Miami taking some time off for a much needed vacation! I thought this week I would share a few things that I’m loving right now and then I’ll do a separate Miami post with the fashion and sites and all that.
First of all, I should say, Happy Spring! This is when the year starts with the time change forward and the budding flowers and trees-it’s also when allergy season starts...Anyways, I’m loving these yellow tie waist pants from Loft that I’m wearing today. These are easy to transition from work to play and I’ve already got a more casual outfit in mind for them. I had a meeting today so I dressed them up with a long sleeve stars blouse and wore heels and had to break out the sunnies since it was so bright! These pants don’t have a ton of stretch to them and I did size up to accommodate my larger bottom.
I am also loving this fun bag that I got right before I went on vacation. It’s a straw/wicker bag whatever you want to call it. I got the dupe from Amazon since it was much cheaper.
Want some good spring dresses that won’t break the bank? I am loving all of these from SheIn The red and white striped dress can be dressed up or down and the green floral dress is perfect for Spring! The red dress is another option for an event like a wedding or shower. Make sure to use my code “curvygirl20” for an extra discount!!
I invested in some new luggage since I badly needed some. It’s fun with confetti on the outside and stripes on the inside. Warning: one time checking this bag and you will need to come home and use your magic eraser on it to clean it. I have many black scuff marks on mine from being thrown around in baggage handling.
Eloquii launched a new collaboration with Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James and I’m in love! Gorgeous pieces in this collection have already sold out. But I’m told there is a second collection coming too. When? Not sure but I’ll let you know as soon as I find out! I ordered this fun jumpsuit and dress. I’ll let you know about sizing once I try them on.
Lularoe launched a new style called the Maurine and only limited pieces are still available. I got a couple of these dresses and I love the flounce on the bottom and the bell sleeves! This dress is so comfortable and yet elegant! I think it’s one of my favorite items they’ve ever released. They’re currently not in production anymore so I would ask your nearest independent retailer if they have any in their inventory. I’d also recommend Michelle Driver or Tracy Vazquez as retailers who might have stock! You’ll need to join their Facebook groups as this is how Lularoe works.
A show I loved watching on Netflix and I think you will too is called The Toys That Made Us There are only four episodes and I wish there were more! This show details the history of some of our favorite childhood toys. I would strongly recommend it! I’m also watching Friends again because let’s face it, could you ever WATCH Friends too many times? Emphasis on “Watch” in my best Chandler Bing voice.
I finished the book Station Eleven and it was good. Kind of weird but good. It is technically science fiction which is probably why it’s not a normal selection for me. It makes you think though about what would happen if the world did get a virus that destroyed everyone. Very thought provoking!
Let’s see, oh, I got my hair done again - much lighter this time but it was time for a change!
And we adopted a cat from the shelter and he is precious. His name is Mocha and we love having him with us.
Thanks for reading and following along with me!
