Dazzling in Dots

Dots, dots, dots...I love polka dots and lucky for me they are everywhere this season.  I saw these adorable cropped polka dot pants at Old Navy the other day and I knew they were coming home with me. I love how well the pants fit and that they are so comfy.  I wore them with a white off-the-shoulder blouse, white BCBGeneration peep toe pumps, a pink Lucky Brand purse and my yellow D&G sunglasses.

From Day to Play: Going Wild

Lately, some of my curvy girlfriends have been complaining about the difficulties in finding clothes that can go from day to play.  My solution: when buying pieces for your wardrobe be more thoughtful. Think about how the pieces that you are buying can be worn. Can they be easily dressed up or down? Can they be worn in different ways (i.e. a skirt as a dress)? If the answers to these questions are no, you should leave them right there on the rack.

Today, I decided to wear an outfit that can go from day to evening with minimal effort.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Today, my co-workers and I went to the Yankee game.  This is my first time going to a game and would have preferred to go to a Mets game (since I am not now nor have I ever been a Yankee fan), but majority rules.  It was a good game, but I couldn't stay until the end.  Baseball games run long and I have work in the morning.

A Trace of Lace

This season lace has been everywhere from the catwalk to the sidewalk.  I love lace because it can be so pretty and feminine.  It is also light, which is perfect for the summer.  Today, I wore this little white lace dress to work and I got so many compliments.  I have been stalking this dress on Macys.com for the past few weeks and imagine my surprise to actually find it in the store (and 65% off too). I paired it with my Lane Bryant belt, my Michael Kors strappy platform pumps and my favorite cross-body bag that I got from Ghana, West Africa when I went on a study abroad trip a few years ago.
