Just a quick post about my new find; RED JEANS!  I have been on the hunt for a nice fitting pair of red jeans for over 2 months and finally found a pair at the Gap outlet for $24.99.  At first they fit snug, but after wearing them all day, they have stretched out and are too baggy.  )=  But,  they will do (will have them taken in).  I paired them with a very cheap navy blue striped sweater and scored a pair of TOMS wedges at Nordstrom today (LOVE THEM!). OH and the CUTEST white and red polka dot scarf from Target ($14!) 
I am in love with the color jeans trend that is so big right now!  It's nice to have an alternative to blue jeans and there are some AMAZING colors out right now!  My next hunt is for a pair of MINT GREEN jeans.  Anyone have suggestions? 
Here's what I wore today...

It is officially SPRING and my favorite season! I love all the flowers and trees blooming and the colors that come along with the season! I also love how this translates to the fashion world!
My #1 fashion motto is to WEAR COLOR and lots of it! Curvy women are told to wear dark, slimming colors like black, charcoal, navy etc. because they make us look smaller.  BUT, life is NOT a funeral and I refuse to look like I am in mourning! Be BOLD, Be BRIGHT! Break free from the depressing monotones and live life in bright, vivid COLOR!!
I have put together an inexpensive Spring outfit (well, not including the accessories) that I just wore this past weekend.  It's so easy yet polished and comfortable to wear.  The jeans are from Levi, the top is Old Navy, the knit blazer is from Nordstrom and shoes are from Target. Tell me what you think!

Spring Time Obsession

Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying our rain! I have been daydreaming about warm, springtime weather!
I am LOVING this color combo for Spring! I am working on getting all the pieces including the Miu Miu bag that has been on my wish list FOREVER! The Old Navy skirt is just $20! Such a cute comfy skirt too and the rolled waist helps hide the tummy! I paired it with the mint tank from JCrew which looks GREAT and is flattering on all skin tones. I added the yellow shoes for another splash of color and gave 3 of my fav choices. As far as the jewelry goes, I would wear the necklace by itself or the earring/bracelet combo but not all of it together= OVERLOAD! And lastly,I would do a french manicure with the color combo nail polish...
What do you think?
