Y’all know me and if you don’t, my name is Stephanie and I am addicted to black and neutrals. Almost every #ootd I’m caught in is minimalist and neutral. So with that being said, you might actually have just said “what the hell?” after seeing these pictures. Yes, I’m wearing color, pink on top of that. And I’m wearing white jeans! Who is this girl? To be honest, it’s strange. I just don’t have a bubbly personality to go with bright clothes, so that’s why I probably feel out of my element. But you also know what? I don’t completely hate it.
White jeans, what? I’ve never wanted to wear white jeans. Not only for the possibility of them being completely ruined as soon as I spill my coffee that I’m trying to drink while driving my stick shift car; but also if you are bigger (mid section or hips or hell both), you don’t want that attention drawn to those areas. And sadly white does that. But these jeans are made perfectly for anyone with some curves. The fit, the give and even the rips are just right and actually appear to have a slimming effect. Win, win for me.
This top is a perfect neutral (I know, I couldn’t get completely away from my comfort zone) but the fit is a million times better. Heck, I would probably wear this shirt in god awful bright yellow just because of the fit. The hem, the material, the shape and the areas it flows is perfect for anyone on the larger side. It’s a very slimming top! And just a basic so it could be worn numerous ways.
Now this bomber. Of course I have wanted to get on the bomber trend, but the prints have made me want to gag. I was kind of “forced” to try this on even though I don’t like pink. And to my own surprise, I didn’t want to take it off. So cute and a pop of Springness to my wardrobe. Fit is perfect as in tailored in just the right places but not tight in any places. I have so many different ways I’m wanting to style this little number.
For Sunday patio lunch and drinks, I threw on a choker, geometric ring, neutral clutch and strappy sandals. Everything just goes so well together and is chic. But also screams on trend for Spring. And can I just say I got more compliments than ever on my entire outfit, from the jeans to ring to shoes and of course endless compliments on this bomber. What can I say, it makes a girl feel good. Plus it didn’t make me feel like I had made a huge mistake by adding some color to my wardrobe. All in all an #ootd win!
So now that I am done going on and on about how much I love all these new pieces and how much out of my comfort zone they are, let’s talk about how I found these amazing pieces.
A new boutique is coming to Biltmore Village later this Spring and all I can say is you will not want to miss out. Nest Boutique + DIY Studio is going to be mine and hopefully your new favorite spot. One of the greatest things the lovely #girlboss owners are doing is offering a full size range of clothing in their boutique. So ladies of all sizes will be able to have that boutique shopping experience in Asheville. And the ladies might just become your new best friends. Because, let’s face it, they are the real reason I tried on colorful and bright pieces. And I didn’t hate it. And they have done amazing. I got a behind the scenes look at their clothes (their plus size line is amazing). Their accessories are also to die for. Nest ladies, can you just help me fill my closet with all new goodies?
Also stay tuned because closer to the opening date for Nest, I will be sharing much more goodies they have to offer, so you can make sure to get there as soon as they open to revamp that closet of yours. Because this entire #ootd minus the shoes and bag are going to available this Spring!
