I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far. Well I want to deliver my great news with you guys..the anticipation has been killing me. Ok! So remember last week I blogged about my Total Rock Star Look sponsored by Glam Media well yours truly was one of the winners of the Rock & Republic Kohl’s Giveaway along side with Brown Bombshell Beauty and I’m beyond excitedd *screaming for joy* When I read the email that I was one of the winners of the giveaway I couldn’t believe my eyes. I thought I was dreaming. I called my husband in the room to look at the email as well to ask him was I tripping or did it really read me as the winner. Well after all of the excitement I had to pinch myself to realize that it definitely was real. I’m usually more private person and not one to brag about anything that I have, but this was news that I wanted and had to share with everyone. “I’m Going to NYC” How awesome does that sound and the best part of all is that this is an all expense paid trip and I’m so grateful for it. I have always wanted to visit to NYC, but the timing was just never right. But I will definitely be making the time for this once in a lifetime opportunity and I will be there no matter what. I feel so blessed to be provided with such a great opportunity and all the additional perks that will come along with my visit…I can hardly wait and in fact I will be packing my bags over the weekend to make sure that I don’t leave anything..hehe!! I will be gone from Feb.8-11th. I’m looking forward to the Rock & Republic Fashion Show and meeting the other bloggers as well! 🙂 Ok enough about my trip and on to my look lol (I just had to share)!
This look was nautical inspired. I have been on the hunt for a true red and royal blue skinnies for some time now and I was successful at my search when I found these at Ny&Co a few weeks ago. They fit perfectly and the colors are just right! The red jean/trouser and navy and white striped top combo, has been in my head and I thought I would give it a try curvy girl style. Stripes are sometimes tricky and you have to be careful when wearing them especially for me being a girl with curves. It has been said that curvier women shouldn’t wear horizontal stripes, but to go for vertical stripes instead, but I don’t necessarily agree.
The nautical look is one of those trends that repeats itself over and over again. What I love about the look is it’s classic and flattering and seems to repeat itself, it’s about adding flair to your style. One other thing I like about the nautical look is that it can be worn for just about any season, while it’s typically a spring fashion I think it still can work with other seasons as well. I mean there are no true fashion rules…at least not to me anyways. My motto is “whatever works for you.”I will definitely be incorporating more nautical pieces and learning how to add more bold pieces into my summer wardrobe to achieve a more polished nautical look. Stripes are very often feared and sometimes a bit tricky to pull off.What I’m Wearing: Red Skinnies~Ny&Co (also similar here)|BCBG Suede Wedge Booties~Amazon |Navy Striped Blouse~Old Navy|Red Bangle~Accessory Shop at the Airport in Atlanta |Blue Bangle~Versona Accessories|Beaded Bracelets~JCPenny|Blue Clutch~Metrostyle|Watch-Target
