Party Pants {Zara Wide-Leg Culottes}

Everyday Outfits, My Style

Who knew that wide-leg culottes would turn out to be my holy grail pants of 2017?

But for real, if you’ve been hanging around my blog for any length of time it’s no secret that I definitely have a preference for skirts and dresses over trousers. But that all changed when I discovered these amazing culottes from Zara. Not gonna lie, they definitely gave me pause when I first saw them in store. But I tentatively took a pair into the fitting room, and ‘lo and behold – I was pleasantly surprised. Now they’re my favorite traveling pants.

About the Fit:
Pants can be tricky for me due to my larger thighs, but these are oh-so-comfy and extremely forgiving. I sized up to amp up the flowy-factor, but your normal size should work just fine if you prefer a more streamlined silhouette and/or have slim hips and thighs. This bodysuit from J. Crew is pretty comfy but beware the thin material – especially if you have a large bust. It tends to stretch out and become see-through. For me, a size up and a black padded bra did the trick!

Seeing Stripes {Asos Striped Party Dress}

Everyday Outfits, My Style

Asos Striped Party Dress {ASOS Striped Party Dress, PRADA Sunglasses, H&M Earrings, ALDO Glitter Clutch, J. CREW Glitter Heels (similar)}

All dressed up, and no place to go… yet!

But with a dress this fun and colorful, can you really blame me?! One of my fashion rules of thumb is that if I run across a fabulous dress, I get it even if I don’t have a particular event to wear it to right away. Because let’s face it, the worst time to shop is when you’re under a deadline. This school of thought has served me well over the years, and I’m rarely ever pressed for what to wear for special occasions anymore.

About the Fit:
This one runs true to size, and the fit and flare shape makes it flattering on a variety of silhouettes. Tea length dresses can be tricky, but this one works on my 5’7″ frame. If you’re petite, you may have to get it hemmed unless you prefer to wear it as a floor length gown. The bottom is very poufy thanks to a few layers of tulle – perfect for twirling the night away with someone special!

Child’s Play {Anthropologie Jumpsuit}

Everyday Outfits, My Style

Colorful Anthropologie Jumpsuit{ANTHROPOLOGIE Jumpsuit, H&M Earrings, NYC Street Vendor Sunglasses, ZARA Slides}

Truth be told, I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. While I absolutely look forward to fall and the idea of breaking out my favorite sweaters and tights, I can help but cling to these last few weeks of summer. I’m definitely dragging my feet in terms of making a full-on wardrobe switch. And can you really blame me for wanting to keep awesome outfits like this crazy colorful Anthropologie jumpsuit in rotation for as long as I can?

About the Fit:
If you’re daring, it’s hard to go wrong with this one in terms of size. The crazy bold print might overwhelm some petite frames, but I’ve never been one to shy away from a crazy print (and neither should you!). I went with a size 10 to allow extra room in the chest area. But if you’re a smaller cup size, you could definitely size down.
